"In the name of God amen. I, Samuel McKee of the County of Fayette & State of Kentucky being sound in body & but far advanced in life but calling to mind the mortality of my body & that it is appointed for all men once to die, I hereby commend my mortal spirit into the hands of God that gave it to me & to my Redeemer whom I trust has redeemed it for me. As To my mortal body I commend it to the earth from whence it was taken to be buried in a decent & Christian manner at the discretion of my surviving children & relations with a firm assumption of its resurrection at the last day. As to my worldy estate that God has blessed me with in this life I desire to dispose of it in the following manner: First of all I desire that all my just & lawful debts be paid. As to my plantation wherein I now live it is my wish that after my death it shall be sold & the proceeds thereof be distributed as follows: Item to my daughter Polly five hundred dollars & two beds, with their apparatus. Item to my son John three hundred dollars with one bed & its apparatus. Item to my son, James, I bequeath one hundred dollars. Item I bequeath to my grandaughter Martha Story two hundred dollars & a bed apparatus & bureaus. And than the balance of the price of my land to equally divided between my surviving children & any of the widow of any that may be deceased. Item I, I give & bequeath to my grandaughter Clarey McKee daughter of my son William deceased a small parcel of land lying in Harrison County adjoining my son Williams tract to her & her heirs forever. And it is my wish that whatever stock furniture shop tools or farming utensils shall also be sold & divided among my children as above. I do revoke & disavow any will or wills either verbal or written heretofore made by me & I do hereby appoint & ordain my trusty friend Elijah Poage & my beloved son Archibald McKee as my lawful executors to see this my will executed, as witness my hand & seal this second day of September 1813.

Samuel McKee, who was in Augusta County, VA, near the Stone Church, in the 1770's-80's, moved to Fayette County, KY in the 1790s and died there in 1813. I don't know who his parents were or where he was born, but wonder if he was a son of William McKee and Elizabeth Todd.

Samuel married Martha (don't know her last name) and she was listed in deeds by which he bought and sold land.

Some are tying him into this family by adding Samuel and sally's son david who married Jane Wallace.

unless he did marry a 2nd time. and they named a child Samuel - also.

this Samuel's family is as follows: Aldo has been listed as son of samuel Mckee b. Aug 17, 1789 in Kerr's Creek, Rockbridge, Va, d. bef. 1850 Franklin co, Ky. He married SARAH “SALLY” CARLISLE Oct 1, 1810 Woodford co, Ky. She was born Abt. 1785 in Md d. aft. 1860 Franklin co, Ky. Res. Frankfort/Farmdale, Franklin, Ky

  Their children:
