FPOC McKees in Belmont County

Surnames: McKee, McKey,Mackey,Gardiner,Robinson
Looking for information on John McKee and family. They were in the 1830 Belmont County Census and living in Goshen. They were labeled Mulatto. Looking for a registry or some other documents that might list the family members - Francis/Frank (my 3x ggrandfather), John, James(my 2x ggrandfather), and his wife Nellie as well as others. Also trying to figure out where they may have come from (seems like VA, but not sure what county). By 1840 the family had moved to Wheeling,VA and remained there until the late 1850's them migrated to Wisconsin. John Jr., James,and Francis were Barbers.

I am trying to determine what documents - registers, tax, etc. or researchers that are familiar with the history of FPOCS in Belmont County that might help me determine when they settled in Ohio, where they might have come from, and if and when they were manumitted, and how they where related.

The men all resided in different towns once they migrated to Wisconsin. They were occasionally labeled as White in the census, census indexes,death indexes, and in an obituary. But usually labeled as Mulatto or Black.
