Surnames: Newell/ Secrest
I have researched the Secrist[Secrest][Sechrist] family as well. What I did find is that Andrew Jackson Secrest had at least 3 brothers; Jacob Jr., John D., Captain Mikel[Michael] Secrest all of Mecklenburg, N.C. in mid 1700's. Through Captain Michael Secrest and Francis Elizabeth[Libby} McCall was born at least 7 children and had guardianship of Leroy McCall. Childrens names are Abraham, b.1781; Francis[male]b.1782; William Michael, b.1787; Captain John, b.1789, Barbara, b.1792; and Jacob, b.1793 and Mary, b. 1790-1795.
Mary Secrest married John Newell in Feb. of 1818, Meck., N.C.
1850 Union, N.C. census lists her with a birthyear of 1795.
John Newell b. 1830-31 on that census is my g.g.grandfather.
That would mean Mary Secrest-Newell is my g.g.g.grandmother.
Do you have any information that supports this. John died or left, sometime between 1837 and 1850. I would be very interested if you have any other info. on him or the older children born to John and Mary from 1818-1830.
Thankyou for making all of this info public, it is very hard to find out anything earlier than 1850.
