Ambrose McKee..........Ambrose McGhee

When I run a search for Ambrose here on McGhee Forum I have a lot of hits. Does anyone have the history of this Ambrose McGhee? Where does Ambrose as a given name begin to show up in the McGhee Family?

On yDNA the McGhee, McGee, McKie, McKee, McGhie, McGehee, Macky, Kee, Key, among the other ways to spell the surname, are close on markers. All seem to share a common ground from long ago South-West Scotland. This is recorded as being so in very old documents and also in an original will viewed at PRONI by Bill McGee and Jerry McGee a year ago. The names are mentioned in the same will as if of one family.

Ambrose McKee is the most further back ancestor on my husband's McKee lineage. He is proven in Mecklenburg Co NC in 1767 and I recently found an annotation at the new Family Search that shows an Ambrose McKee at Croydon at Surrey in England in 1758 having a son named Robert being baptized and recorded wife named Philadelphea.

Would this info tie in with any McGhee on McGhie or McGehee known work?

Thanks. Linda McKee
