I am researching Elizabeth HAND, born 1829 in Ky Co, married to Jesse W. YANDELL, abt 1848 in Sumner Co, TN.
Elizabeth is 1/2 Cherokee Indian.She came by wagon train from Arkansas to Missouriwith her son Thomas Cornelius Yandell.Her sister Rebekka Hand and Rebekka's son John Lewis Brower came with them.
Elizabeth is buriedat a Private cemetery just outside Troy, MO. Her sister Rebekkah is buried next to her.They both have the Cherokee Indian Tribes symbol on their tombstones.
Burial:Rybolt Cemetery - Hwy. 47 east from Troy, MO appx. 7 miles to Hammett Rd. (across from Hwy
W). Turn right onto Hammett Rd., appx 1 1/2 miles . The rd will end up at
a flat rock crossing in a creek.Just as you get to this, the cemetery is
on the right , up in a cleared field.
