BOTH of my grandparents were McKEEs:
My grandmother Mary McKEE was born in Antrim in 1872 and emigrated to Phila in 1893 .
She married Henry (same surname) McKEE, who was born in Maghera Derry in 1868, and emigrated to Philadelphia in 1890.
Mary had McKEE relatives in Philadelphia even before she emigrated - and Henry McKEE had brothers who emigrated to Philadelphia between 1890 and 1900.
So I've a whole lot of Philadelphia McKEE relatives - some of whom first settled around the Port Richmond/Fishtown areas and some then migrated into Germantown.
It would be helpful to know the county of origin, approximate dates of birth and immigration for your Alexander McKEE.
