I am interested in any information about and especially the ancesters of John Madison Yowell born in VA, 13 Dec 1849, and later moved to Marshall, Saline County, VA, where he died 2 Dec 1932.He was married to Alice C. Childress (not sure when or if married in VA or MO).
It is believe his father was Abraham Yowell (1803-1887)and his mother was Jane ?? (b abt 1810) but I cannot prove this.Legend has it that they came from VA and may have come from Madison, VA, as John's middle name is Madison, although this may have no connection at all.I don't know when they came to MO either.But all lived around Marshall, MO, as many Yowell's are buried in Ridge Park Cemetery there.
John Madison Yowell's son Walter Allen Yowell was my great grandfather.Walter was born in Marshall, Saline Co., MO in 1884 and died 10 Dec 1969 in Marshall, MO.
Any help on this line would be greatly appreciated as I have exhausted my sources locally.
