  1. This is my family too, I love the stories of Cassie Frakes McKee as well as the stories of the adventures of her son William McKee who served during the Black Hawk War and journeyed west to the Whitman Mission–not once but twice! Cassie McKee’s daughter married Joel Tullis which is my line back to the McKees. My great-grandmother was Nettie Tullis Whitson, the granddaughter of Joel Tullis.

Any thoughts?
