McKee, James (about 1852-3 to 1895) and Mccrystle, Mary Ann (about 1847 to 1920) from County Tyrone, Ireland. Info wanted about my Great Grandparents from County Tyrone, Ireland.
James McKee was born about 1852-3 in County Tyrone, Ireland and died about 1895. Religion: Roman Catholic. Parents William McKee and Jane (surname unknown). Occupation: weaver. Immigrated to USA Dec 15, 1870, NYC. Settled in Cumberland, RI. Naturalized Sep 20, 1886.
(According to a www.rootsireland.ie
Civil Marriage Record of Nov 7, 1848, his parents were possibly William McKee (born about 1826) and Jane Dinning or Denning (born about 1828) from Stewartstown, parish Donaghendry, County Tyrone. His address is listed as Killymurphy, and hers as Stewartstown. His father is listed as William McKee with occupation farmer, and hers is Henery Dinning or Denning with occupation shoe maker. But I have no proof that this Civil Marriage Record is of my Great Great Grandparents.)
