TREW, TRUE, KNOX

Nancy True/Trew's obituary in the local newspaper stated that she wasfrom Meigs County. She was b. 01/18/1892 and d. 11/21/1951 in RoaneCounty. She married William N. Knox on March 12, 1906 in Tennessee. We know her parents were Emerson and Margaret Lou Mullins Truebecause they were listed in a family bible. We think Margaret was aGentry and must have been married before marrying Emerson. We arealso pretty sure that William M. Trew, born abt. 1811-1817 in NC andMillie M. ? born January 1823 in Ga. are Emerson's parents. But,can't get to Meigs County 1900 Census to see if Nancy shows up underthe family of Emerson and Lou.
