Since the 1980s Kevin has been actively seeking his family roots and history, which has broadened into quite the MCKEE library and family tree. Kevin's branch of the McKee family, from Donegal Ireland to Peterborough, Canada -- then to Marysville, Kansas -- is documented on his family treemaker website. Additional information is available there including the family tree (by clicking here.). Since there is a lot to learn regarding this branch alone, the search has opened up other research in lateral MCKEE migrations with hopes of linking other families. In order to broaden this search and define it even further, more possibilities open up with DNA reaearch (Thank You, Linda McKee) check out an affordable way and the possibilities of finding more on your MCKEE family line.
While Kevin is working on a MCKEE family publication- he will be sharing information on the MCKEE surname, its beginnings and migrations through links below.(pictures of Great-Grandparents E.J.

Family-members of William McKee and Sarah Thompson (ones known to have immigrated)- Robert McKee/Anne Elliott brother Samuel McKee/Beaven Elliott and their children- possibly brothers other kin, families settled in Smith Twsp, Peterborough County, Ontario, Canada around 1831 receiving land- Marriages toFitzgerald, Elliott, Roseborough, Finlay,Crawford, in Canada; Randolph,Pelsue,Tarvin,and Dalton (on both sides)- others along the way, some remained Ontario- some (I believe)to Exeter, Huron County, Ontario, Canada then on to Kansas (Marshall County) in 1871. Kevin McKee has extensive research and was involved in two reunions, 1986 and 1998 and is discovering new cousins. Kevin will exchange information; would like to continue to build large family tree. Through his extensive lateral family research, he enjoys the discovery and history involved with Genealogy. Kevin also aknowledges his maternal ancestors in Quick,Ekstrom,Curry,Brady,Raine and others very ably covered by his Aunt Lana (Quick) Lanham and included in the family tree portion.
