My Yazell's settled near Goddard, KY, and were members of the Goddard Methodist Church, the one with the lovely covered bridge.My great-grandfather was Nelson Yazell and he married Sarah Ann Bramel from Plummer's Landing, KY, just a few miles down the road from Goddard.
Nelson and Annie (as she was known), had 15 children and I met almost every single aunt and uncle, and knew bothGreat-grandpa and Great-grandma (Nelson and Annie).Dorothy Jane Yazell Jordan Walter, was one of their daughters, and was my grandmother. She was the last surviving child and passed away in May 2004, shortly after her 92nd birthday.
Great-grandpa always said the family was "Black Irish" and that the family actually hailed from Scotland and later Ireland.
The cemetary at the Goddard Methodist Church is full of Yazel's, Yazell's and Yeazel's.I was in Goddard and Plummer's Landing about a year ago and have photos of the house that Nelson built for the family.
