(At least) the McKees were Scots-Irish
Her “Gilmer” line is of Scots-Irish origin itself. So I’d say he ancestry is mostly a mix of English (presumably) and Scots-Irish, with some French.
She has other French ancestors like this one: https://www.geni.com/people/Vincent-Rongnion/6000000006110669683?through=6000000007097706242
