In the 1860 census for El Monte, Los Angeles County, California these Yourees were enumerated:
James R. Youree......40 yo b. TN America Youree.......41 yo b. VA William T. Youree....13 yo b. MO Mary F. Youree.......12 yo b. TX Joseph Youree........9 yo b. TX Emily Youree.........5 yo b. CA
Also in the 1860 census there was an America Youree enumerated with the family of Joseph & Elizabeth McGee but in Oktibbeha County, Mississippi. Elizabeth McGee (age 35) and American Youree were both born in Virginia. Is this the same America who was married to James R. Youree . . . and perhaps she was visiting her sister? Or were they two different people?
