If you look at the German Records and read the book of "The Salley Family" and the Book of records, It will give you birth,Christening,marriage,death dates on these families. This is where a lot of my info came from. The closest info on the Yawn family came from Bibles that are still in the Family. This is some of what I have.Don't forget the Yawn Reunion in Ga this year.

I also have the Salley (aka Sali) line all the way back to Hans Sali b- abt 1622 Switzerland that married Anna Biederman 10-10-1642 Switzerland. their son Heinrich and wife barbara Suter,and then their son Heini Salley Sr that married Maria Von Aex that are the parents of Martin Salley Sr that married Susanna Yawn. I hope this info helps someone. I was told the records are from solid documentation from the Church as records were very well kept in the early years. One thing puzzles me though. I keep hearing there was Indian Blood from the Yawn's but, I have yet found any records of this.I contacted a man from the Indian Reservation in Fl and he has not seen any either. All court documents show Black, person Of Color. if anyone could share proof of native American Please share documents with me.In Orangeburgh Sc. William Yawn states he is a Black Man. Can anyone shed light to this. I know the Chavers that married into the yawn was of Color but, this was well after William Yawn.I can only go by Court records and documents. Many of the children were bonded to other families as to being sold.
