    William McKee is the son of immigrant John McKee and Jane Logan. Their first son William was born in 1750 and died in 1752. He applied for a marriage bond with Jean Kenady/Kennedy on 21 Jan 1790 in Rockbridge Co., VA. He owned land in Augusta Co., near his father's. He died in ABOUT 1835, some sources say in 1833.

    They had 2 children:
    1) James (widow Rachel Wilson Moffett, dau of David & Ellen Wilson)
    They had James Moffett McKee and Ellen Jane McKee (Alex Smiley)
    Ellen had Martha McKee Smiley (Mrs. Jno A R Varner and Jas Berry)

    2) Margaret (Mrs. Jno Carson) had 5-6 kids, died at about age 92

    The McKees of Virginia and Kentucky, by George Wilson McKee, Published 1891 by J. B. Richards in Pittsburgh, p 59 says William was born 28 Feb 1759 and is buried here. " All that is earthly of William McKee and his wife, Jean Kennedy, lies buried in New Providence Church graveyard." Mr. Varner describes him as tall and thin, with gray eyes, dark brown hair and a dark complexion. William's farm was on Moffetts Creek, bordering Harvey Fulton's. “Mrs. Berry says her grandfather, William McKee, was the first sheriff of Rockbridge County and was about five years old” when he lost his mother, Jane Logan McKee. He was commissioned by Gov. Thos Nelson on 4 Sep 1781 (after its formation in 1778). Also in 1781, his older first cousin, William McKee produced his commission in court, and was appointed Major, by Gov. Nelson. There's lots of other data on him in this source. Need some other proof of their burial here. He is not listed in existing surveys of this cemetery in the 1900's. NO known MARKER.
