Martha (McK) Richardson, Candace, Amanda (McK) Kirkpatrick, Miriam (McK) Hall, Richard, Josiah, and Emma.  Information from U.S. Pension Records, McLEan County, Ill.

Miriam McKee (1851-1936) is my 2xg-grandmother in my mother's maternal (Surpluss) line.  William McKee (1810-1873) and Sarah McKee (1817-1895) were my 3xg-grandparents, and that makes Charles Moore and his wife Martha my 4xg-grandparents.

I am learning when you get six generations or so out from the Revolutionary War how easy it is to qualify for the D.A.R. and S.A.R.
