I'm still looking for my the parents of my great-grandfather, James Yarbrough!I have census records for him back to 1850 (TN) but not 1840 (TN).Then on to AR in 1860 and later.
I see that there is a James E. Yarbrough on the 1840 census of Henry Co., TN.He is living next door to John Yarbrough.I'm interested in knowing more about these families in the off chance that this could be my James.
My James was married around 1837 - wife unknown - but said to have been named Elizabeth COLE.There was a Cole family living a few houses away.And the 1840 household of James E. has a male 20-30 and a female 15-20.The age for James is right as he was born in 1815.
The location COULD also be right since my James re-married in Benton Co., in 1845 (Louisa Childress). Benton and Henry counties are next door and apparently the boundaries of that area moved around alot.
My James was said to have worked in an iron ore smelting furnace when he was young and there were some in that area.
So, if someone has info on these people so that i can rule them out - or better yet give me hope - I'd appreicate it.
