Notes for Elizabeth McKee:

From Wayne Adams

 

Name illegible on Archibald’s will but married Samuel KNOX.  Note that Joseph’s

daughter also married  a KNOX and named a son Samuel KNOX.  Archibald KNOX’ son

Samuel used mid-initial  M, possibly to distinguish from a cousin whose same name?

James WITHERSPOON mentioned granddaughter Elizabeth McKEE, daughter of  Archibald and this is

almost certainly the grandchild referred to [Archibald’s estate in 1/5s]

..GenForum posting by Jules Delambre (6/16/2001 #2330) relates to a Rebecca McKee who m/Samuel

Knox and resided in Williamsburg Co, SC.  They were on the 1790, 1800 and 1810C.  Their son John

Knox was thought to have been born in England <1775 (??) and died 1827 in Amite Co, MS.

 

 

Notes for Samuel Knox:

From Wayne Adams

 

designating him as “I” to distinguish from two Samuels in subsequent gen-

erations – II=his grandson and III=Joseph McKEE’s grandson. [Can’t rule out

II and III being the same person if cousins intermarried.]

 

I had Samuel’s wife shown as ELIZABETH McKEE who died in SC before 1776 but appears her name

may have been REBECCA?

===

A Linda McKee Nov 2008 posting on the Knox Genforum  may connect to this branch

“Samuel Knox and REBECCA McKEE appear to have married in England and had a son John Knox (b

before 1775 in England d1827 in Amite Co, MS)  They came to SC and settled in Williamburg Co and

Samuel appears to be listed in the 1790, 1800 and 1810 censuses of Williamsburg Co”  She was

seeking info on either Samuel Knox, Rebecca McKee or their families.

 

Child of Elizabeth McKee and Samuel Knox is:

Archibald Knox [probably grandson named in will of Archibald McKee, deceased of Williamsburg Township] died in Amite County, Mississippi, leaving will signed 13 Feb. 1816; probated 21 May 1821 by William A. Knox.  Estate appraisers, 12 Feb. 1816 by: James Hanna and John Cain.  Martha Knox, wife and administrator with sons-in-law: Alex. Jackson and James Hanna, and step-son-in-law, Hugh W. Cooper.  Children of Archibald Knox by 1st wife were Elizabeth Hanna, Samuel M. Knox, Anna Jackson and Martha Hanna.  Children of Archibald Knox by 2nd wife [Martha] were: Sarah Jackson Knox, Rebecca Adaline Knox, Robert Lowry Knox, and William Alexander Knox. [Casey & Otken: “Amite County, Mississippi 1699-1865”  1-379-410]  Samuel M. Knox, Amite County, signed will 11 June 1827; probated 22 Oct. 1827, naming Anne Reese Knox, and son, Samuel James Witherspoon Knox [minor].  Executors: wife, Anne Reese Knox with friends, Richard Hurst.  Witnesses: Charles McKnight, Lenora C. Witherspoon.

Henry Janna removed to the Mississippi Territory and we find him in Amite County, Mississippi, 9 March 1810, with 163 acres.  He also had a grant of 622 acres in Amite County, 9 July 1816.  Henry Janna ordered by the court to sell Negro slave girl claimed by William F. Hanna and James Hanna, given by their grandfather to their mother, who has since died. [No date of Court Order.]  The will of Henry Hanna was signed 26 July 1820; probated 6 March 1821, naming following children: William Henry Hanna, James Hanna, Elizabeth Martha Hanna [2nd daughter], Anna Latita Hanna [eldest daughter], Nancy Elvira Hanna [youngest daughter].  “To my niece”; Anna Hanna.  Executors: Moses Gordon, Sr., James Hanna “my brother”; John Knox, William Henry Hanna, “my son now under age”.  Witness: John and Robert Nesmith, Zachariah Nettles.  Henry Hannah deceased 6 March 1821, William H. Hanna, guardian of James Hanna [minor]; Moses Gordon, guardian of Nancy Hanna [minor].

Henry Hanna deceased 5 March 1821.  Administrators:  John Lowry, James Denman, Samuel Knox, Daniel McGahey and Stephen Heard.  Estate Appraised at $11, 268.53.  Final settlement 26 Oct. 1821.  Heirs: son, James Hanna; daughters, Anna L.

John McCullock of Anderson County, South Carolina signed will 4 Nov. 1806; probated 2 March 1807; naming wife, Elizabeth McCullock, and two step-daughters, Elizabeth Cash and Mary Cash “to have the property of their deceased fathers”.  Executors: James Crowder and John Milford.  Witness: James Crowder, John Milford and David Steel.

 

Inventory made by James Pettigrew, William McKee, John Milford, Thomas Milford, David Gillespie.

 

In the final settlement of Estate, Betsy Cash; signed as Betsy McKee, but the name of her husband was not given.  It is probable that she was the wife of Archibald McKee, Sr., since a relationship existed between the Cash family of Anderson District and this branch of the McKee family.

 

 

 

..Extract of Archibald’s will identifies 4 ch.by 1st mar. & 4 by 2nd.

 

I had tentatively set up an Archibald Knox Sr and Jr to accomodate inconsistencies in research

information BUT NOW CONCLUDE that the Archibald whose will was processed in 1816 was Archibald

the husband of Ann McKee Knox.  Following notes should apply to 1750-1815 Archibald Knox rather

than to his father.  I do not presently have identity of Archibald’s father

Notes for Samuel M Knox:

From Wayne Adams

 

will extracted in Mackeys & Allied Families p680. “II” to distinguish him

from Joseph McKEE’s grandson but II & III could be same person

 

 

 

 

Notes for Ann McKee:

From Wayne Adams

 

From “MACKEY” book info, Ann married a KNOX and had son named Sam; Her

cousin Sam KNOX married an Ann and had son named Sam. Extremely likely [but

not positive] that she married her cousin – tentatively input that way.

 

 

..From “MACKEY” book info, Ann married a KNOX and had son named Sam; Her cousin Sam

KNOX married an Ann and had son named Sam. Extremely likely [but not positive] that she

..Some confusion between Archibald Knox & Samuel Knox lines.  A posting reportedly based at

Wm. H. Hanna m/ — Humphrey

Perry H. Hamma m/Mary Ann Robinson

Mary Ann Hanna m/Walter Franklin Love

(plus 2 more generations; also takes Hanna’s back to Henry b/2/21/1773)

This fits with Joseph’s will granting land upon death of his wife to Henry Hanna of Mississippi

Territory so I am extending her line to include Eliz Knox and descendents

..GenForum posting by Jules Delambre (6/16/2001 #23.

 

 

 

DAR Patriot Index shows that Archibald Knox born c1715; died 12/17/1815 m1/Elizabeth Ann McKee m2

Martha McClellan.  He was a Private serving in SC.

From his will note that Archibald Knox had four (young) children by his second wife as well as the four

he mentions from his first marriage.  From Joseph’s will I had assumed (incorrectly it seems) that Ann

died after April 1810.

Children of Samuel Knox and Ann McKee are:

15               i.    Samuel James Witherspoon29 Knox.  He married Mary Scotthorn March 16, 1818 in Adams County, Mississippi.

 

Notes for Samuel James Witherspoon Knox:

 

..Note the James Witherspoon middle names.  The marriage of Samuel Knox to Mary

Scotthorn 3/16/1818 in Adams Co, MS may or may not refer to this Samuel but does

not fit for his father (still m/ to Ann when he died) or to Joseph’s son in law (unless 1st

wife died).  Of course it could be a different Knox family.

 

 

16              ii.    Elizabeth Knox.

17             iii.    Martha Knox.

18             iv.    Anna Knox, born 1800; died Aft. 1815.  She married Alexander Jackson; died Aft. 1824 in Texas.

 

Notes for Anna Knox:

Archibald Knox 1815 will distinguishes between the four children of his first marriage

and the four by his second — identifying children by name and we can assume all were

living in 1815.  Anna was the fourth and youngest of the children by his marriage to

Ann McKee. Each was given “one dollar to each of them which I deem to them as their

full part and share of my estate.”  The daughters by his second marriage were each

given “one Negro girl” for their lawful use  The only child for which I have a birth date is

2nd child Elizabeth who was born 10/22/1780 but all four of Ann McKee Knox’ children

were old enough to be married by 1815.

2004 Posting by Dorothy Cox

Archibald’s daughters were Elizabeth, Martha, Anna, Rebecca & Sarah

Anna married Alexander Jackson and migrated to Texas by 1824

Alexander was one of the executors named on the Archibald Knox Will and identified

as his son in law
