I NOTICED THAT YOU MENTION JACOB SECREST AND ANDREW SECREST IN YOUR POSTING, JACOB SECREST AND WIFE BARBARA WAS IN NORTH CAROLINA IN THE MID SEVENTEEN CENETRY. JACOB WAS MY 7TH GRANDFATHER. HIS SON ANDREW WAS BORN IN MECKENBURG IN 1767. HE HAD A SON JOHN BORN 1758 IN CULLPEPPER VA.,BEFORE COMING TO MECKENBURG. THEY WERE IN MECK. COUNTY UNTILL UNION COUNTY BECAME A COUNTY FROM PARTS OF MECKENBURG AND ANSON CO IN 1842. I HAVE WORKED ON THE FAMILY HISTORY WITH MY FATHER AND GRAND FATHER SINCE I WAS 18 YEARS, OVER 50 YEARS. I HAVE RECORDS OF ALL THE SECREST BECAUSE THEY ALL STAY HERE AND OWNED THOUSANDS ACRES OF LAND. I GOT MOST OF MY RECORDS FROM MECKLENBURG,VA. TENN. THEY CAME ON A BOAT WHERE HE AND BARBARA WAS MARRIED, LANDED IN PA. TWO BROTHERS CAME WITH THEM ONE JOHN ALSO HEARD ANDREW.LOOK AT THE SECREST FAMILY FORUM FOR MY POSTING SINCE 2000.
