I am researching the Yant family of Washington Co., PA and have reached a dead end at my g-g-g-grandfather, Daniel Yant of Carroll Twp, who died in 1866. He married Sarah, daughter of Aaron and Mary (Taylor) Applegate of Allegheny Co., PA. Previous posts on this board suggest Daniel was the son of Valentine Yant, but I haven't yet proved the relationship.
I would love to connect with other researchers of this branch of the Yant family. (James Newton Hammett - are you still out there? You and I are both gr-gr-grandchildren of Harvey and Narcissa Van Voorhis Yant.)
