Re: Levi Knox descendants and allied families

Yes, Rachel Knox Nelson is the daughter of Thomas & Nancy Knox. My GGG Grandfather, Levi Knox, and Thomas were brothers. Owen Nelson, father of Robert L. Nelson, was the brother of my GG Grandfather's 2nd wife, Mary Catherine Nelson-2nd connection to Nelson's-no relation to me. George Knox's first wife, Eveline Haborn, was my GGGrandmother. Descendant outline below. I can provide a genealogy report that includes notes and sources if interested. Is Uncle Lafe, Robert L.? Owen and Rachel had 5 children. All accounted for in Census'. No 'Lafe' listed.

Secrest Surname: possibly 3rd connection.... My GGGGG-Grandfather was Frederick Secrest, a Rev. War patriot; John Henry Secrest; Catherine Secrest; Asa Dickerson; Geo. W. Dickerson; Norval W. Dickerson; Nova Valore Dickerson; Donald Geo. Knox and me, Sara Lynn Knox. My Grandmother, Nova, was close to several Secrest's during her early years in Guernsey County, OH. She attended Business School with Ruth Secrest. Any connection to that Secrest line?
