Re: Mary E. Yearsley-d.1855 Washington Co TN
I am a descendant of William Kelsey Blair and Mary Elder Yearsley. Their son William White Blair was my ggrandfather. He was first in the Jonesborough militia during the Civil War, then a private in the TN First Cavalry. After the war, the family apparently was wiped out financially (I need to do more research on this situation); he moved to Randolph County, Missouri, where he married Sarah Mourning Farrie in 1868. In 1878 he contracted typhoid fever from which he died.
The Blair family in Jonesborough is pretty easy to track down. I will be glad to share my findings with you.
