Kentucky McKees descended from John McKee and Polly McCoy

Surnames: McKee, McCoy, McClintock, Mills, Stipp, Stewart
A broadsheet published in 1900 by James Robert McKee and entitled "American Genealogy of the Allied Families of McKee, McClintock, Mills, Stipp, and Stewart" is available for viewing on the Library of Congress Digital Interlibrary Loan website at <www.loc.gov/rr/loan/illscanhome.html>; I had trouble accessing the site and the broadside was very slow loading in the PDF format. In addition it is very large so the print is small. I finally enlarged it enough to read and find it did not contain my McKees. It is the genealogy of John McKee, born in Ireland, who came to Charleston about 1775 from County Monaghan, Ireland. He married Polly McCoy in Virginia and settled in North Carolina. John was killed in 1780 in the war. John's friend, Thomas Shaw, took the widow back to Virginia and later married her and moved to Bourbon, KY. There is an article in the April 2006 issue of "Family Tree Magazine", p.76 describing interlibrary loan and mentioning the availability of materials from the Library of Congress including some noncirculating items such as this broadsheet. Hope it helps some other McKee researchers. Nancy M. Smith
