James McKee and Amanda Heacock Columbiana, OH 1840-1900

I am trying to trace the descendants of James McKee who died in Shenango Twp., Beaver Co., PA in 1839. In his will he names his sons Charles, James, John, David and Hugh. David is my great-grandfather who moves to Pulaski, PA. Charles, John and Hugh seem to stay near Shenango and New Castle. James, sometimes James G., is my dilemma. In a deed selling some of the property in Shenango in 1845, James seems to have a wife Amanda M. The only James and Amanda I can find born about 1815-1825 are the couple who first appear in Columbiana Co., OH in 1840. I have not verified to my satisfaction, but there is a marriage for a James McKee and Amanda Heacock in Ohio about 1840. Following the censuses this couple have children Mary about 1841, Rosanna about 1844, Sarah E. about 1846, William F. in May 1848, Ella about 1852, and Carrie about 1867. William F., his wife Jane Doyle and family stay in Salem and/or Perry, Columbiana Co. until his death in 1918. His death certificate verifies that his mother's maiden name is Heacock. I cannot find any of this McKee family in the 1870 Census. In the 1880 Census James and Amanda are back in PA but in Lack District, Juniata County. I have not found any death records for James or Amanda. James' brother David's obituary in Feb. 1891 says his brother James McKee "of Huntingdon" survives. Is anyone else trying to trace any of this family, or can anyone tell me where a Huntingdon might be, especially somewhere near this western Pennsylvania-Eastern Ohio region. Thanks for any help.
