About William Mckee

In a letter from my Great-Uncle Eck (Alexander C. McKee son of Joseph Howe) wriiten by his daughter and I would assume the person the letter addressed to is Arthur McKee son of Jacob Lefler McKee who was son of Joseph Howe McKee. he writes:

                              Indianapolis, Ind. 

August 23 1915 Dear Arthur Some time ago we received a letter from you wanting the names of some of the folks here and other places that I knew and also wanted to know if the first Sunday in Sept. would do to have the reunion. As far as I am concerned it is all right. Don't know for sure whether we all can come or not...I'll give you what names I have.

  • Marion Ballard; Brownsburg RFD. No. 2 granddaughter of Uncle William.
  • Mrs., C. P. Laycock 814 W. 27th Street Indianapolis,Ind. another granddaughter of Uncle William .
  • There is a grandson of Uncle Daves that lives here. I will see him myself.

Tell the Ballard folks at Brownsburg to notify all the other folks of her family the Catterson people. They live around in their part of the country somewhere. These are all of the folks I know now.

Hope you are all well...Let us hear from you. I always get Flo to write and she has been busy and then I was waiting to find out some of these people that is the reason I have been late about writing. Excuse this paper out of any that is decent. Love to the folks. Uncle Eck per Flo
