Castleblayney McKee's emigrated to Canada, Australia & New Zealand

Posted: 18 Apr 2012 2:37AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: McKee, Ranson
3 daughters of John & Elizabeth (known as Lizzie, nee Ranson) McKee born in Castleblayney, moved to England and then emigrated around 1912-1914: Martha Jane McKee (born 1884) to Canada, Margery Ranson McKee (born about 1890) to Australia, and Margaret McKee (born about 1894) to New Zealand. The family story is that this was after visiting the 1911 World's Fair "Festival of Empire" held at Crystal Palace.

I have information about Martha Jane and her descendants but I'm seeking further details about when the sisters emigrated and what happened to Margery Ranson and Margaret and their descendants. I'd also appreciate any information that anyone can offer about John and Lizzie McKee (born 1855 & 1856 respectively). Lizzie is thought to have had a twin brother or sister.

I'm researching this on behalf of Patrick McKee (a nephew of the 3 sisters) who lives in Wales.
