Hi Marie, to the question you ask, who was this Andrew Keys in Peoria, Ill.
years 1860-80. IM sorry that I can't help you out on that, nor, who was
Morris Sellers who was living in Peoria, 1860-70. If I get a chance, I will
go to Peoria, Library and do some research on this Morris S. As for my
and Sarah Kee, they were living in  McDonough County Ill. when the 1860
census was taken. On said census it has, Andrew Kee. 27, Ohio--wife Sarah
(Sellers) Kee. 27, Pa.-Mary Kee 5, Ill.-William Kee 3, Ill. & Elija Kee
Ill. In the 1880 census of Hancock County. Ill. Harmony Twp. I found listed
William Kee 23, Ill.--Bell w.f. 20, Ill.--Viola Kee. 15 Ill. & Luther Kee.
age 10. Ill. (Just where Andrew and Sarah were at this date?) but William
listed as the head of the household hear. In Sarah (Sellers) Kee, 1922,
obituary, Hancock County Ill. it has that she gave birth to 9 children. How
many live to adult hood?  But the obituary has that 5 children and her
husband preceded her in death. The Kee family (that is Andrew L. or J.
Kee,parents) I will give you some history.--William KeeJr., 1-5-1806 in
Washington County Maryland. He married a Mary Fisher date 11-11-1830. In
Brownsville, Pa, William and Mary Kee, lived in Va. for 18 months, which is
now part of W.V. They then moved to Coshocton County Ohio, where there 7
children were born. Andrew Jackson 8-18-1832, Sarah Eleanor 10-4-1834,
5-14-1837. Elizabeth Ann 1-22-1839, Martha Jane 7-13-1842, Mary Elizabeth
1-17-1845 and Samuel born 3-7-1847. This whole family lived in said county
Ohio, for 22 years, when they moved to Fulton County Ill. year 1853. One
later, they moved to McDonough County, Ill. (This Mary E. born 1845, was
Mary E. Kee that married Henry Albert Maxwell in McDonough County Ill. year
9-19-1867.)-----As for my Sellers clan, ASA and family moved hear (Peoria)
some time in the early 1870s for none of my Sellers clan, ( none of Asa and
Eleanor White Sellers children) are listed in Peoria's census for the year
1870----This 1880 index for Cole County MO. on Thomas J. Sellers age 33 Pa,
and Mary E. age 25 Ill. and children Raymon 8, Ca. and Minnie 5 Ca.--as
as this 1900 index for Henry Co., MO. On F. J Sellers or T. J.  Sellers age
52, Pa. and Mary E. age 45, Ill, and Minnei L. 25 Ca. and Claud O. age 15
sound's very promising, sense it also lines up with the 1920 census that
sent me on Pratt, Ks =Mary E. Sellers age 65, Ill. living with her mother
Sarah Kerg?=Kee age 87. Oh. = Pa. & this Claud Sellers age 34, MO. (What
the odds that this is not the same family ??)  But IM not going to hold my
breath. I am sure hoping that someone will come up with the 1870 index of
Jeff. twp. On this F. J.  or T. J.  Sellers. T. J.  and Mary might not had
been married in the year of 1870, sense there oldest child, was born about
1872. but as you wrote, maybe the 1870 census will tell where T. J.
were from.------------

 The Kee Family.
Andrew Kee, the father of Mary E. ( Kee ) Sellers, mention above. And the X
husband or Sarah (Sellers) Kee. If you recall Andrew Kee, and Sarah Sellers
were married in Coshocton County Ohio 1853, and then moved to Ill. (Sarah
daughter of Asa and Eleanor [White) Sellers) Andrew and his new wife Isabel
were found in the 1900 Census of Jasper County, MO. They had been married
years. They had a daughter named Daisy Kee, in the 1900 Census she was age
17, and born in MO. She later married a Louis H. Schmidt. This whole family
are buried in the Kee Plot, at Forest Park Cemetery. Jasper County, MO.
