I currently own the house in which a Lemuel and Carrie Lee YERBY lived in during the 1880-90's and possibly earlier in the 1860's-1870's.
It is a Federal style wood framed house finished in 1812 but started earlier by a Capt. Charles Wills and is located near downtown Richmond, VA in the historic Church Hill sector. It was considered a mansion in it's day but only a large 5,000 sq foot house by today's standards.
An earlier post about a "mansion" in which a Yerby lived in Richmond, VA and knew Stonewall Jackson caught my eye and wonder if there is a connection here?
Can anyone link to this Yerby so I may learn more about the people who owned my house in the past?
