    NOTE! Some reseachers confuse THIS Levi [who married Rachel Combs]
    with the Levi who married Winnie Lewis.
    THAT Levi
    [who married Winnie Lewis] is the son of Aaron [who married Ann Coldiron].
    Aaron is brother to THIS Levi's grandfather Abel
    [who married Martha "Patsy" Lewis].
    THIS Levi
    [Abel "Levi"] and THAT Levi are 2nd cousins-once removed to each other.
