About Robert McKee

Terry L. Todd believes that Robert could of been in Montgomery co., Ky. in 1810. As a there is a Robert McKee with two daughters on the census and on the same page is there ia a John Todd probably his father-in-law and a few pages later is a Joseph P. Howe; probably who his son was named after.

There is no SOLID proof of her heritage only that her father was a John Tdd and he signed her marriage bond. BEwARE many want to connect her father John Todd in various ways and in a way as to find a relationship to Mary Todd Lincoln and a closer one than exists for her spouse Robert McKee

John Todd's Consent for marriage of Mary Todd to Robert McKee is found in Mercer co., Ky. Records: This is to certify that Robert McKee has obtained my consent for a licenses to issue for solemnizing marriage between said Robert McKee and my daughter Mary Todd, given under my hand and seal this 1st Day of Dec. in the year seventeen hundred and ninety one. /s/ John Todd Witnesses: John McKee Samuel McKee

Also found there is the marriage bond: Know all men by these presents that we Robert McKee and Samuel McKee are held firmly bound unto the Governor of Virginia for the time being in the sum of fifty pounds current money to which payment well and truly to be made to said Governor and his successors we bind ourselves our heirs to jointly and severally firmly by these presents sealed with our Seals and dated this 2nd day of December seventeen hundred and ninety one. The condition of this obligation is such that whereas there is a marriage shortly intended to be solemnized between the above bound Robert McKee and Mary Todd. Now if there be no legal cause to obstruct the said marriage then the above obligation to be void. /s/ Robert McKee Samuel McKee Test: Thos. Allin

Family Bible Transcription This Bible has no covers and, therefore, no dates are to be found. Only the word, "Edinburgh" can be made out. On the paged headed "The Psalms of David in Metre" further down on this page one can read, "Allowed by the authority of the General Assembly of the Kirk of Scotland, and appointed to be sung in congregations and families."

The Bible is in possession of a cousin in Flemming, NJ. (now in Fletcher, NC.) but I do not have her consent to use her name. However I do have a xerox copy of the data in my files. The family information is so old and faded I had to use a jeweler's loop to make out part of it, reads as follows:

Robert McKee was born September 9th 1766 Mary McKee his wife was born February 26, 1771 James McKee was born on June 26th 1792 John Todd McKee was born December 22 1796 William McKee was born June 9th 1803 Joseph Howe McKee was born September the 27th 1805
