After finding this web site, I called my grandfather in Joplin, Mo. to see how far back he could take me in the Yeakey family tree.Maybe some of you can make the connection. He is certain of a connection with Kentucky.His and his father's name is Walter Scott Yeakey.He told me of an uncle named William who had moved from Arkansas to Missouri in 1903.He is uncertain of any history before that. His father was one of 13 children but he couldn't remember his grandfather's first name (will post when available). He also told me of a trunk he has in his basement that has been passed down for generations that has the name Wiley(?) carved on the inside. Also inside is a lot of information that I will be searching through after Christmas.Any information provided will be greatly appreciated.Have a Merry Christmas!
