Paul:Some years ago, a Youree cousin sent me xeroxed pages from a book of Youree genealogy which she found in Houston library... I don't have the pages handy, but do remember that it seemed to focus on the Louisana Youree line.
Peter & Henry were the sons of Patrick Espey Youree/Malvina Marguerite Zimmerman of Sumner Co. TN & Lafayette Co. MO.And grandsons of Francis Youree/Margaret Espey of Sumner Co. TN.Francis was born in Ireland according to 1850 census.He was the son of Alexander Youree/Mary who were in Mecklenburg Co. NC before moving to Sumner Co. TN in early 1800's.
My Youree line is the Francis Youree who was also in Mecklenburg Co. NC before moving to Rutherford Co. TN in early 1800's.No doubt these two (Alexander & Francis Sr) were related, but so far, I have no clue what the relationship was.
Will be happy to share my Youree info with you...I've been trying to sort out the Rutherford Co. Yourees for some time.They are entertwined with the Sumner Co. Yourees with both using some of the same given names.Makes sorting out the two families pretty confusing - but never dull!
