Note: While using ANY genealogical website or program...please be informed that ANY possible family connections are NOT valid until they can be verified with documentation. 

This will - help connect other McKee ancestry to the Mckee project of 'McKee's of Virginia, Kentucky & Indiana

PLEASE LETS - clean up the "Gedcom madness" of the early McKee's variously spelled - pleople have just gedcomed and merged - I have placed the originagal books and the details from them on geni to help with this - tho with some there are not dates - if there is documentation for p profile - please enter it to help us all out -

NOTHING  of this  line in Ireland and Scotland is  concrete and yet fully veriified -  it needs alot fo work to determine the correct  descendants - needless to say that the McKee brothers  of Rockbridge county Virginia  are listed   several times  over as is David McKee of McKeesport, Pennsylvania and  in different generations. - it is impossible to cut these out in  MY OPINION because you do not know if there were actual children by that name  for those parents or not  or whether over the years they were just  MANUFACTURED   by people researching in order to connect  the Mckee's of  Virginia & Kentucky and McKeesport  in order to connect to the Scotland & Ireland Mckee ancestry known -  needless ot say it is a mess.

Gedcoms that were passed to me and print outs of these the early Scotland Ireland lines were names only and went around in vicous circles as they had matched together as being one in the following combinfations:

  • son/father
  • nephew/uncle
  • grandfather/grandson
  • son/father= grandfather/grandson
  • grandfather/grandson = nephew/uncle
  • nephew/uncle = son/father

with no dates I done my best to get the lineage back into working order MAYBE - - Since I began in 1976 I have kept every scrape of McKee various spellings that I have come across, that has been shared with me to try and connect properly, document as I go - I do not consider my self "the expert" on this line - its just what has been handed down - what connects properly with dates, places and documentation. Many go back to the "Old" because they demand since it is in "print" on familysearch.og, ancestry.com; pedigree files etc. that it is fact it is proven and it is documented thus it is correct. There has been some who have had their "feathers ruffled" because you discount the legend of 10 - 11 brothers coming to America and thus all the McKee's are of just one family from the old country.

PLEASE feel comment in the about me section of profiles if you can to express concerns, doubts etc. if you are unable to edit profile send me the profile link the infromation as you would like to see in the about me - any documentation and I will gladly place it into the profile(s) Most needed is dates and locations for an approximate time period and location probably locations and births can be filled in as <Dumbarton, Scotland> of person being of a cetrain location can be put in the "Display as" blank Anything is more than welcome to help sort these lines out -

Nothing will be delted as entered it will be either merged or re-aligned according to documentation found and presented

I have found a site that wll help in this and provide missing dates - it is doucmented thus far and that helps alot - it will help you and me to decide if that has been given is correct - tho with this it is putting several people/profiles into 2 different aprent groups for the time being - it will be a slow process so be patient but it is the BEST information I have found as to date of the early Mckee ancestry - alot being based on the the 2 newer McKee genealogy books. BUT i still am not comfortable connecting the Rockbridge McKee's to this groups as the the names of Hugh, Patrick, Alxeander, etc. and not carried down into the early Virginia lines - they were James, John, Robert, Samuel, William. Maybe I am wrong in this feeling. i am goign to leave the orginal {#4] and location assoications in the profiles from the Book on the mckee's by james Y. McKee just incase someone disagrees with this lastest finding .

 

Scope of Project is To build a single, validated and documented shared family tree the goals being:

  • 1) to create on Geni an accurate representation of the genealogical information
  • 2) To either prove or disprove the story of the 5-10= McKee brothers that came to America
  • ........I have alloted space for those 10 mythical brothers in the lineage for the McKee'es of va. and ky they are [-?-] McKee #_ abd when found will be changed to a name and the # behind the "McKee" is to be left attached for the present time being.
  • ............To fully document those who did not come to America
  • ............To break off the multi bad merges that have accumulated through GEDCOMS and put into separate trees with appropriate 'missing generation profiles" to bring the lineage back into proper order to many of the John's, Robert's, William's, Anthony's, Alexander's have been merged across generations and a father has become a son has become a grandson/father/uncle; a father has become hii own father/uncle/grandfather etc. some of the GEDCOMs and trees i have seen go around in a vivacious looping cycle that is utterly inaccurate Some one has chosen to merge various GEDCOMS together as one without doing cleaning up, correcting and trying to document and bring in date ranges.
  • ....................this will be an extremely hard and delicate task to do since many trees do not have dates in them - it will probably "ruffle allot of feather's" so to speak but needs to be accomplished some how - two if not 3 major early genealogy books and there lineages now are on here to help with this endeavor -

Historical Background

With a General Sketch of the Early McKee’s Prof. JAMES Y. McKee. PHILADELPHIA: JOSEPH D. McKee. 1892. this book states that:

it states:


The first real knowledge we have of the McKees dates from over two hundred years ago, when four brothers bearing that name left Scotland for bonnie England.

There they soon joined the army of William, Prince of Orange, and shortly - afterwards, in 1690, we find them, with the rest of the army, in the northern part of Ireland.

We have been unable to learn the Christian names of these four brothers.

All we know of one is that he returned with William's army to England. where we lose all trace of him.

Three were induced to remain in Ireland by grants of land for services rendered....

for now to help in possibly keeping these branches straight I have used the 'primary location given for the four brothers when they returned to Ireland as follows:-

  • 1# - Mckee of county Antrim Ireland
  • 2# - Mckee of Ards Northeastern county Down Ireland
  • 3# - Mckee Returned to to England
  • 4# - Mckee of Lisban, near Saintfield, County Down Ireland
this books seems to think that  a   McKee brother with his sons came to America and are the progenitors of the  Virgiania and Kentucky McKee's 

One married and settled in County Antrim; but even tradition has no further information for us concerning either himself or his descendants although from actual knowledge in our possession concerning the other two brothers and their descendants, it seems almost a certainty that he and his family emigrated during the exodus from Ulster to America, about 1735, and were the progenitors of the McKees in Kentucky and Virginia, whose history has been written by George Wilson McKee, Major of Ordnance, U. S. A. ....

the above genealogy by George wilson McKee is ambigous - in that - - -

This Mckee book states one place there was 10-11 brothers - - yet another on write later on - " In 1737 when a large migration of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians to Pennsylvania and the Valley of Virginia took place, five brothers McKee came with that colony. 1 ) Two of them. John and Robert, settled on a portion of Burden's grant, on Carr's Creek, in what is now Rockbridge County, about eight miles north-west of Lexington. 2) The other three brothers settled in and near Lancaster, Pa., remained at that place until 1760, when William, one of the brothers, removed to Augusta County, Va., from which place his family removed in 1788 to Kentucky and settled in Mason and Montgomery Counties. The other two brothers removed about the same period (1788), from Lancaster to Pittsburgh and Wheeling respectively...."

Of the aforesaid book George Wilson McKee, McKees of Virginia and Kentucky, the, Pittsburgh, J. B. Richards, 1891. his summary of Mckee orgins was stated as:

1) They were of Irish, Celtic origin and the main body of them went into Scotland in the 12th Century to assist William the Lion in driving the Danish pirates from Caithness and the north generally

2) Few if them probably joined William of Normandy in the 11th century when the latter, preparatory to his descent upon the Sussex coast of England invited to his standard professional soldiers, free-lances, adventures and cut throats from all parts of Europe

3) Tradition says of them that from the earliest down of the reformation they have been Protestants. Early in the 16th century, owing to the Civil feuds of Scotland, their native land for centuries, they emigrated back to Ireland - - thence after a brief sojourn to France. There they remained until the massacre of the Huguenots, on St. Bartholomew’s Day, August 24, 152. Being firm adherents of the Protestant faith, they experienced the utmost fury of the enemies of their religion on that day. But few were left to tell the tale of horror. Those few fled to the North of Ireland. And there again, in 1641, under the reign of Charles the first, the most famous of the Stuarts, and in 1688, under James the second most pusillanimous, they again experienced the fury of persecution on account of their religion. It is said that some of those, who escaped the massacre on St. Bartholomew’s, day fled into Holland and marched into Ireland later, with the forces of William, Prince of Orange. In about 1738, ten or eleven brothers McKee emigrated to America.

4) In 1738 when a large migration of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians to Pennsylvania and the valley of Virginia took place, some brothers McKee, variously estimated from five, ten or eleven sons of one who had borne a part in the defense of Derry, arrived in America and first settled near Lancaster, Pa. There they separated – some settling near wheeling, W. Va. And Pittsburgh, Pa. And some going to the far west. Two of the brothers John and Robert, went almost directly to Va., (about (1757) and settled on a portion of Borden’s grant, on Kerr’s Creek in what is now Rockbridge county, about 8 miles north-west of Lexington. In 1760 William, another of the brothers, also removed to Augusta County, Va.

because of the different versions I have used a buffer or connecting profile to represent possibly a "lost generation"

The Swedish Mackays, now von Key

These Mackays settled in Sweden in the time of the 1st Lord Reay [ Donald Mackay, 1st Lord Reay (1614-1650) , fiar of Strathnaver], and came thither as members of the Scots regiment which he raised for service under Gustavus Adolphus. " With the regiment were several officers of the name of Mackay," says the Svensk Slaktbok, " who accompanied it to Sweden.

Among those coming in with the said regiment were the under named James Mackay. and a Rudolph Mackay, whose son Isaac [corrupt form of lye] became proprietor of an ironwork in Gestrickland and married Anna Lenfstadius in 1647.

This family has signed itself Mackay, Mackey, etc., but now calls itself von Key."

The family settled in Gothland in the south-east corner of Sweden, and chiefly in the counties of Kalmar and Jonkoping. Our authority for the following account is wholly the Svensk Slaktbok, published in Stockholm by P. A. Norstedt, 1901

I. Lieut.-Col. James Mackay, settled in Upland, and had known issue a son, of whom follows.

II. Lieut. Frederick Keij (Key) , m. Elizabeth Pihlman, dau. of a merchant in Kalmar, and d. 1687, leaving a son, of whom follows :—

III. Jakob Key or Keij, royal bailiff in Tuna County, m. Margaretha Draugel, and d. 1735, with issue :—Johan, of whom follows ; and Frederick, of whom afterwards as IVb.

This was a basic start of the family and did not include all of the children of the couples a pedigree chart was included in the book that included 8 generations from James

McKie's of Scotland

There was a family of McKee or McKie or Mackie living in Galloway Scotland at least as early as the fourteenth century. They were related to the Maghies of Balmaghee in Galloway and were probably a branch of the Clan Mackay. There is a tradition that Robert Bruce in the days of adversity was travelling alone and on foot when he came to a meeting place near Loch Dee in Galloway. Here he met a widow Anabel and her three sons, McKie, McClurg, and Murdock. During the night he was joined by his brother and by Sir James Douglas with an armed force but in the morning before they started out the widow's three sons entertained the king with an exhibition of their prowess with the bow. It seemed Murdock brought down a raven with his arrow but his brother McKie brought down a pair with a single arrow. The three sons fought for the King and he rewarded them with a grant of lands of Cumloden in Minnigaff parish, Kirkcudbright, lying between the burns of the Palnure and Penkill, both of which flow into the Dee. These lands extended full three miles by ten. 
  • The McKees of Cumloden, Minnigaff parish, Kirkcudright, Scotland:
  • The McKees of Larg
  • The McKees of Stanard
  • The McKees of Palgown
  • The McKees of Craignyne
  • The McKees of Crosby
  • The McKees of Glencaird
  • The McKees of Drumbuie
  • The McKees of Bargaly

The Galloways Mackays

The Galloway McEths are divided into two main branches, the

M'Ghies of Balmaghie and the M'Kies of Larg, of which the former may be the older, but the latter has the more numerous offshoots. They are one and the same family originally, although the names appear slightly different in script—a difference which was at first very much a matter of taste, but which custom petrified to some extent. The striking affinity between the arms of the two branches also indicates a close relationship.

The arms of Balmaghie, which we give above, are blazoned by Sir George Mackenzie, "Sable, three leopards' heads erased, argent." The crest consists of a leopard's head erased, langued, ppr., with the motto Quae Sursum Volo.

Corresponding to the leopards (Scots, lions) of M'Ghie, the M'Kies of Larg carry a lion in chief, of which we give a representation on page 352. Thus both branches bore the lion with a difference.

THE BALMAGHIE M'GHIES.

Bahnaghie, i.e., the Town of Mackay, Kirkcudbrightshire, was the seat of the family from very early times. Chamber's Caledonia, the Statistical Account, M'Kerlie's Galloway, etc., record a tradition that the lands and church derived their name from a Celtic chieftain, who settled there in the distant past. But in the Cart, of St. Cross the church of Kirkandrew, Balmakethe, is mentioned among various other benefices granted in the 12th century by Fergus of Galloway to the Abbey of Holyrood. The MacEths must, therefore, have been settled in that quarter before that date. Gilmyhel MacEth signed the Ragman Roll in 1296, and in 1339 a Michael Macge submitted to Edward III. (Rot. Scot.). In the Beg. Mag. Sig., 1426, Gilbert M'Gy is styled lord " of Balmage," and from him the descent can be traced for some generations.

THE M'GHIES OF AIRIE AND AIRDS.

The M'Ghies of Airie and Airds sprang from Balinaghie, but we cannot say at what date. The following James of Airie is the first whom we have been able to trace.

pgs. 347- THE BOOK OF MACKAY BY ANGUS MACKAY, M.A. (St. Andrews University) Minister at Westerdale, Caithness EDINBURGH : NORMAN MACLEOD, -25 GEORGE IV. BRIDGE CANADA : EDWARD MACKAY, ST. PETER'S MANSE, MADOC, ONT. M DCCCC VI [1906]

THE LARG, Etc., M'KIES.

This branch dates back to the time of king Robert Bruce. According to Barbour's Metrical History of Bruce, the hunted king, escaping from the beagles of John of Lorn, made his way on foot and alone to an appointed trysting place near Loch Dee in Galloway, where he was hospitably entertained by widow Anabel and her three sons, M'Kie, M'Clurg, and Muiredach. During the night the king was joined by his brother and Sir James Douglas with about 150 men, and next morning the widow's sons gave an exhibition of their prowess with the bow which greatly delighted the Bruce ; M'Kie with an arrow transfixed a brace of ravens perched upon a rock, while his brother Muiredach brought down the third corbie on the wing.

This incident is supposed to account for the brace of pierced ravens which find a place on the shield of M'Kie. The arms of M'Kie of Larg were never recorded in Lyon Register, but they are described in the Heraldic MSS. of Sir James Balfour, and may be blazoned as follows :—Argent, two ravens pendent from an arrow fessways piercing their necks proper, on a shield azure a lion passant of the field, armed and langued gides. Of these arms we give a representation here, but unfortunately our artist has omitted the crest and motto, which are respectively a raven proper and Labora. These arms are now borne by M'Kie of Bargaly, within a bordure componee of the first and second.

When the king came to his own he did not forget the loyal widow and her gallant sons, who had fought for him so well. He bestowed upon the family " the hassock of land 'tween Palnure and Penkill," to

wit, the thirty pound land of Cumloden in the parish of Minnigaff and stewartry of Kirkcudbright. It lies between the burns of Palnure and Penkill which flow into the River Cree, and measures about ten miles by three. It was divided into three ten pound lands, which were known as Cimilodcn-M'Kie, Cumloden-Murdoch, and Cumloden- M'Clurg.

Sir Patrick M'Kie and his successors heavily mortgaged the barony of Larg in the interest of the Solemn League and Covenant, and had their lands eventually forfeited. During the religious persecutions which followed three leading M'Kies, John of Larg, Anthony of Glencaird, and Alexr. of Drambuie, were condemned to death. They all escaped, however, but with the loss of their lands, which went to pay the cruel fines imposed. The only family that weathered the storm was M'Kie of Palgown, from which descended the present M'Kies of Bargaly, a family that has religiously striven with a great measure of success for more than a century now to repurchase the old M'Kie lands in Galloway. Long may their tree flourish. The first notice of the lands of Cumloden is the following in Robertson's Index:—"Carta Gilberti, fil. Nigelli, terrain partem terre de Cameleden, in vie. de Dumfries," which may be translated, charter of Gilbert, son of Neil, of the third part of the lands of Cumloden, in the sheriffdom of Dumfries—"terrain partem terre" being probably intended for " tertiam partem terre." According to the Exchequer Rolls, Cuthbert M'Makay paid £3 13s. 4d. for relief of lands in the county of Wigton, 1330

I. Malcolm M'Kie of Cumloden, is the first, however, from whom a direct descent cau be traced. He had two sons :—

  • Patrick, of whom follows ; and
  • Gilbert, m. Marion de Keth, by whom he got the third part of the barony of Craichlaw, Longaster, and Barmagachrie, c 1450 (Beg. Mag. Sig., v, 69,).

II. Patrick, had sasine in 1471 of the lands of Cumloden M'Kie, Fynataloch, Cloncert, Barnrower, and Baryarrak. He m. Marion Makmakene, by whom he got the lands of Drumnagarne (Reg. Mag. Sig., VII., 302), and had a son of whom follows.

  • III. Patrick Makge of Larg
