I have been doing research on McKee's of knox county Ohio. They came to Knox county in 1809-1810. I have a copy of the will of Charles McKee born in 1764 Donegal Ireland. His wife was Margaret Lockhart. They had several sons and daughters. From what I have found there was a bit of a battle over the land that Charles left behind. His wife Margaret followed him in death in 1852. My grandfather was Alexander McKee married to Tabitha Waddell he was born in Nov 1794 in PA and Tabitha was born in March 1800 also in PA. I have been trying to find solid truth that Charles is indeed the father of Alex, tho many family tree's have it as such on here. I have not found a birth record and even in the will and that Chancery Court (or Common Pleas) regarding the disputes over land.
I guess I am not a well seasoned genealogist. But I have been at this for 10+ years. I don't feel like I have gotten any closer to finding where for sure my line goes back from Knox county. If anyone has any information they would like to share that would shed a light on this for me I would be forever grateful!
