My Family Tree, VanHorn, Mckee,Shearer

Updated May 15, 2005


Edit Your Page
I am researching the family names of Van Horn,Hoorn,Horne from Holland and the McKee's and Shearers from Scotland. These families where based in the New York area from the late 1680,s for the VanHorns and McKee's and the Shearer family from several counties in Pennsylvania area beginning in the early 1800's. I have been able to go back as far as the 1760's for two of the family names in various counties in New York. Any information you would be willing to share on these two families would be greatly appreciated. I am willing to share the information that I have aquired. A great deal of the information I have gathered is from family members,census records and other web sites. I am particulary interested in what became of the Van Horn family bible, information from one of the e-mails I have received mention the bible might have been given to Sen. Burt Van Horn after the death of his father James Van Horn. Any decendents of Burt Van Horn's out there that might be able to confirm or deny this information?

Is there anyone who might have information on the parents of James McKee married to Martha Vanarsdale daughter of Tunis Vanarsdale and Jennie Weir? I have some information on Martha's family but none on James family.
