Do not trust as totally valid any tree/report data...it will be my best guess at the time of working on a specific project.  Often World Connect or Ancestry trees/data were utilized as a foundation upon which to add material gleamed from obits, articles, histories, biographies, stories, burials, censuses and other data collected.
 



McKee
Basic descendent tree of the  Geo. Wm. McKee line in Fayette Co, Iowa.
This McKee family is closely associated with a line of Doty's in Fayette.Co.IA.
A Doty page will be linked off the
Iowaz Index Page
There were other McKee's that came into Fayette.Co.IA.
I have to re-create trees from online, census, burial info so there will be speculations/best guesses.
These trees can be added too or corrected should anyone want to copy/paste/email info.


The McKee & Doty trees have been very subjective, so take them as a starting point.  The Fayette.Co.IA related items will likely be a best guess/info available at the time of uploading.

Geo. Wm. McKee & son David were deceased and both buried in unmarked graves in Grandview Cem, at Fayette.IA, although their land holding was still
shown on the 1879 Plat, either due to lag time or the land was still being farmed by someone in the family or just had not been transferred.
In the 1870 Census, Geo Wm. McKee was enumerated adjacent to Geo. Gothard, in the same location as on the 1879 Plat.
Son David A. McKee was till in IL, living with his sister Harriett's family in 1870, so apparently came to Fay.Co.IA immediately after the enumration.
Both Geo.Wm and David's acreages were from the T.Hill land/farm.
The McKee/McKay's were near other families in the Lima, Albany, Frog Hollow to Spring Valley neighborhood
that came from the Kankakee & Iroquois Co's, IL, area.
The McKee's were only in Westfield.Twp from abt.1869 to the mid 1870's.

Do not trust as totally valid any tree/report data.  Often World Connect or Ancestry trees/data were utilized as a foundation upon which to add material gleamed from obits, articles, histories, biographies, stories, burials, censuses and other data collected.  My primary interest is generally the pioneer history and includes linking village and neighborhood surnames together for several of the early generations.  Family connections, locations and other data may have to be speculated in order to continue a complex series of inter-related projects.  My web pages are primarily personal study projects for note keeping, but can also jump start others.  I have a huge number of projects started and rarely return to edit/update material unless interest is rekindled.  Any web pages online are usually linked off the 'Index Page.'  Numerous projects are not put on web pages but are in draft form or in the form of photo albums on the 'Photo Hosting Site.'   I may have material for research use in storage, plus will/can upload other people's material if appropriate.
