Charles Larkin Yant b.1851 TN is the son of Moses Yant b. 1804 TN. Moses Yant is believed to be the son of Abraham B. Yount b. 1769 PA and Sally Jones b. 1775 NC. Moses Yant is listed as Moses Yount in the 1830 Census for Lincoln Co., TN but as Moses Yant in the 1840 Census for Lincoln Co., TN. Moses and his children continued to be listed as Yant in subsequent Censuses but why the surname changed from Yount to Yant is still a mystery. I have lots of info on the Yount/Yant families of Tennessee but have no further info on Martha Jane Perry. I can provide you my genealogy report on the Yount familes of Tennessee if you are interested.
