Dedicated to the
Memory ofJoseph L YanceyJoe's Genealogical Research Files
[Dennis J Yancey: ] During the Late 1990's I came to know Joseph L. Yancey (Joe).
and I worked together in learning how to create web pages and
apply that knowledge to post information about Yancey Family
which was a common interest. We worked together for a time and then I lost contact with him.
Eventually I found out he had passed away.

The story behind the spelling of Joe's last name.
"My fathers name
was Joseph Levi Yancy. I suspect that
the spelling of my last name is typical of what has happend to many of our
ancestors. When I entered the Army in 1950 I was 17 years old and had a very
I did not pay attention to some of the papers which I
signed and after about a year in the Army someone noticed that when I wrote or
signed my name I did not use the "e" and informed me that in all of
my military records it was spelled with the "e" [Yancey] . After checking with
legal advisors and the state of Alabama I decided that the simplest way was to
get a one time change of my birth records [To Yancey].
All of my known relatives spell the name Yancy, also most
of the deceased are burried in the same cemetary in Morgan County Alabama
(Johnsons Chapel) and all the markers use Yancy. Most of my information in the database came from my cousin Eulalia
Wellden and when she gave me the material about 10 years ago some of the names
in her documents used the "e" but I found that the grave markers all
were spelled Yancy.
