It looks like there was more than one person named John Fee, born 1857 who moved to northern Illinois. One was from Ohio, another from Ireland.

You would be a better judge of which John Fee is the right one.

Do you have any additional family names or other information that could help establish a beginning of your family tree?
Thank you Frank. I do have some sources that have him born in Ireland so I am leaning in that direction. What would be a Y chromosome test to take and would my father need it too??
All the records about living in Evanston, IL are accurate and his death in 1919 also. He is buried at St. Mary's in Lake Forest Illinois with his wife Hannah (Morgan) Fee (died 1916). As are the census records from Illinois with Hannah in them. The MC Fee record is interesting in that it was a family rumor that we were possibly McFee! And another rumor was John came into the US through Canada.
All your ancestors in your paternal line would have the same Y DNA.

The Y DNA test is confined to part of one chromosome. If you want to see what nationalities are in your ancestors, you might consider having a more comprehensive test of all 46 chromosomes.

My ethnic makeup results show 83% British Isles, 11% Eastern Europe and 5% Asia Minor. You may want check out several sources to see which one is more likely to clarify Irish ancestry.
