Dr. MacTavish: According to my records, and I can't prove everything yet, Esquire L. Yonts, Square L. is the way his name is spoken in Letcher County, is the son of John W. Yonts. John W. was a son of William Yonts, Jr. and Nancy Ray. Square L. would have been a g-grandson of the old William Younce or Yonts. I have a lot of information on some of the names you are researching and am willing to share it. Good Luck.
