Re: William(?) and Sophia (Davis) Yancey
An alternative interpretation of the record I previously posted has been suggested to me that I now think is far more likely to be the correct interpretation.

I now think that the Sophia (Yancey) Otwell was a co-heir with Cyrus Yancey, and that they were both children of William and Sarah (Davis) Yancey.
This interpretation (which I think is the right one) of course implies:
* a new daughter - Sophia - that apparently no one heretofore was aware of, and
* that both William and Sarah (Davis) Yancey had died prior to 1805.
