Hi Krystal:
I saw your name and had to reply because I have a six year old daughter named Krista Noel Kee. Her grandfather Ireland O'Brien Kee and grandmother Thelma Jones Kee are from Laurel, Ms. and Hattiesburg, Ms. respectively. We know nothing about Grandpa Kee's father. We suspect that he was Irish. Ireland and Thelma Kee came to Wheaton, Illinois after graduating from college at Alcorn State in Mississippi. Grandpa Kee's mother was Mary Hugger Kee from Laurel, Ms. I believe she was part native American and part African descent. Grandpa Kee is very light with straight hair, but no one talks about his ancestry.

Good luck in your search. I haven't begun, but I indeed to do so, for the sake of my Krista!

I am a descendant from a large Kee family from Memphis Tennessee. My grandfather (Mom's side) was Sterling Jones Kee. His wife was Molly (Mary) Wilson (I think - I called her Granny). Their sons were Norman, William, Jack, James (still birth) and David. Their daughters were Erma, Bonnie and Josie. I had always assumed that Kee was originally McKee, perhaps to escape the initial prejudice experienced by the Irish when they first came to America.
