Hi Brenda, thank you for responding. I hope to see many other postings soon from everyone and I hope I can contribute too. I'm not sure if this bit of information has any relevance to the Richard in N.C.(Was he actually born in N.C.?),but I thought I would share anyway. I found this information in a search. If you would like to see the page for yourself, its: http://members.tripod.com/~FOSBERY/d0003/g0000053.html#I3741http://members.tripod.com/~FOSBERY/d0003/g0000053.html#I3741 Scroll to the bottom of the page.(BTW, not sure if the spelling is correct on the locations of birth) Richard Yeilding = Birth:ABT 1771 - ? , Bellvue,Ireland. Father's name is Richard (Birth:? - 1804 , Clogher in co. Kerry), mother's name is Melicent Studdert. Grandfather and grandmother's name is unlisted, but ggfather's name is Richard (Birth:ABT 1690 - ? , Belview in Limerick), and ggmother's name is Belinda Bateman. That's as far as it goes. If anyone can shed some light on this information, please reply.
