Secrest Family Genealogy Forum
The annual Secrest family reunions (descendents of Jacob Secrest and Barbara Sims) are held in Rock Hill, South Carolina - just south of Charlotte, North Carolina. You can contact my ex-husband, Sam Secrest, at 919-463-9262 or his uncle Russell Secrest at 919-467-9757.
The family legend is that Jacob ax-murdered his step-father for incest with his (Jacob's) sister. He supposedly was from Baden-Baden, Germany. He supposedly married Barbara Sims on the ship. If memory serves, they were in Pennsylvania and traveled down the Appalachian Trail until arriving in North Carolina. My ex's uncle, Rone, did some research. I have a copy of that but it is 20 years old. I'm sure someone in the family has more info that I.
