McKee land purchases Indiana County of Origin
Actual images of land deeds from the Bureau of Land Management website www.glorecords.blm.gov sometimes show a county of residence different from the county where land purchased. This can help determine where purchaser came from. These images also sometimes show fuller names, for instance Daniel J Palmer as Daniel Jakeway Palmer. I`ve taken the land deeds for McKee in Indiana and listed them showing these differences when they occur. When multiple listings for the same name are shown in the same county I generally used the earliest one, as it is most likely to show a different location. I then typed multiple at end to show that there are more than one listing. The city at the end of each listing is the land office where land was purchased. Where fuller names were given I showed them in parentheses.

Thanks for sharing this information. I'm related to all the McKees that you identified acquiring land in Sullivan County. The reference to John A. Mckee is to John Ambrose McKee, son of John McKee Jr. and Jane Watson.

Glad you found the information of use. I am trying to tie my Henry McKee from Dearborn County Indiana born around 1820 in Ohio and married Phoebe Palmer 8/6/1840 in Dearborn County to other McKee lines without much success. There are several McKees in Dearborn County at that time, born between 1815 and 1830 in Ohio, but I can find little on their parent or parents. Good luck with your research.

I am related to numerous Mc Kee's on your list, sorry I have no henry on my list. but I can give you some information on the ones I know about.
Eli and Edmund are brothers, their father was David Mc Kee, born in Mass. in 1774. They had a brother Samuel, who had a son also named Samuel. I think some of the others are also related but I'm not follwing the records.

Has anyone found Andrew McKee (either of the ones mentioned) on a rent roll or state census before 1840 or 1841 in IN or a part of what eventually became IN?

Does anyone on the list have Andrew McKee, who eventually ended up in IN, in their genealogy?

I've seen a story where who might have been a brother of Eliza McKee, moved to IN about 1833. Eliza married Eleazer Rouse in Washington Co. VA in 1823.
