    Notes 

    • (1) Elizabeth Ann Grubb:

      NOTES:

      The history of Samuel KEELY, son of James KEELY and Mary (McKEE) (PEATTIE, ref. #9 below) states that Anthony W. McKEE served as a
      soldier in the Western Department of the U.S. Army during the War of 1812. Compiler wrote N.A. to request a Veteran's Pension File, but none was found.

      Whether Anthony was involved other than to provide shelter for Shaker families migrating across OH is unknown, but he apparently did provide shelter to at least one group in Feb., 1824. The AGNEWS, his wife's family, were members of the Whitewater Shaker Community in
      Butler County, per the research of M. TAUNTON.

      Anthony and Nancy (AGNEW) are reported to have been among the pioneer settlers of Shelby County, IN, arriving between 1830 and 1840. Their daughter Mary married James KEELY in Shelby County in 1835. By 1850, Anthony KEELY and his family, James and Mary (McKEE) KEELY and at least three of Mary's married brothers had all relocated in Fulton County, IN, in the area around Rochester.

      Nancy (AGNEW) McKEE died in Fulton County, IN in March, 1860. In 1860 Anthony, aged 64 years, is enumerated in the home of his son
      Albert "Russell" in Rochester Township. Anthony's death is reported to have taken place in Rochester on 22 Sep. 1868.

      In Oct., 1995, Wilma (MOW) FOLTZ, a resident of Fulton County, provided compiler with the pages from a record of graves found in the
      McKEE Cemetery near Loyal, IN. The cemetery had been recorded and published in a DAR project in 1935, but only about 4 graves appeared in that publishing. In October, 1975, other graves were found and recorded. The following is taken from those pages:

      " . . . on the Old Alonzo Sheets (now Joseph Richards) farm, R.R.3, in Rochester Twp,...It is on 250 North, about one and three-tenths miles west of 250N & 400W . . . 1?? mi. west of Loyal . . . at the very back of a field, in the corner, about two city blocks north of the road, and behind an old barn. . .

      The graves are broken and very difficult to locate,...

      (---), ---, Died Sept. 2----Ag-- 72 yr-3-----.

      (Note: This is the lower left part of this marker, and all that remains of it. It probably is a part of the Anthony McKEE stone. Manitou Chapter Dar, Genealocial Survey . . . reveals that Anthony McKEE died Sept. 22, 1868, age 73 yr-3mo-21da. . . . He was born June 1, 1795. He married Nancy AGNEW, and they were residents of Shelby Co., Indiana by ca. 1834; and in Fulton Co., Indiana by 1850. . ."
