The nobles of El-Kab (Nekhen) were quite influential during the early part of the 18th dynasty.
We have:

Ahmose, son of Ebana. He fought under Sekenenre-Tao and Ahmose. His tomb contains an autobiography that gives a lot of information about the expulsion of the Hyksos.

Ahmose, called Pen-Nekhbet. This man is truly interesting. He is the Vizier under Thutmosis I and II. His son User-Amon also became vizier. And Rekhmire was a direct descendant.
He married a lady called Ipu, who was the nurse to Thutmosis III. Their daughter Satiah was the first Queen of Thutmosis III.

Ahmose, Son of Ebana

See: [url] http://nefertiti.iwebland.com/ahmose_inscription.htm[/url]

He gives his family background:

“I grew up in the town of Nekheb, my father being a soldier of the King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Sekenenre, the justified. Baba son of Reinet was his name. I became a soldier in his stead on the ship "The Wild Bull" in the time of the Lord of the Two Lands, Nebpehtire [Ahmose], the justified.”


He describes:
The campaign against the Hyksos
Nubian campaign of King Ahmose
The capture of Aata
The defeat of Tetian
Nubian campaign of King Amenhotep I
Nubian campaign of King Thutmose I
Syrian campaign of King Thutmose I

The biography of Ahmose, called Pen-Nekhbet can be found at:
http://nefertiti.iwebland.com/texts/ahmose-pen-nekhbet.htm

It's interesting that he claims:
Quote:
  The divine consort, the Great King's Wife, Makere, triumphant, repeated honors to me. I reared her eldest daughter, the Royal Daughter, Nefrure, triumphant, while she was a child upon the breast .........


I wonder when and why Senmut became the tutor of Neferure?

Ahmose PN seems to live into the reign of Thutmosis III.
