More Minnock information copied from Marion, from the Yarrington board:
My husband is descended from Ariana Yarrington (husband unknown), Alfred H. Yarrington, Thomas L. Yarrington. Ariana had two children: Alfred H. and Eliza DuVal. Alfred married Elizabeth Spears and their children are Richard J., Virginia L., Corneliz, Robert and Aurilla. Aurilla m. Henry Page. Eliza m. William Minnock and they had one child: William A. Minnock b. 12 Feb 1822, Richmond, VA d. 14 Nov 1861 Montgomery County, TX. We know of "Belle" Yarrington who reportedly ran a boarding house in Richmond - that "fact" is part of a display at the Poe Museum here in Richmond. We have been unable to tie in to "Belle" with my husband's family..he has an aunt named "Belle" so we believe there is a connection.
