The Yancey Family
and associations/connections/relations
with Native Americans.

Over the years as I have collected Yancey family history and genealogy
I have found no evidence that there was any significant Native American connections
among the early Yanceys  (such as intermariage - or close associations)'

In recent years you can ocassionally find reports that the Yancey name is a "Native American" name.
But this has only been in recent years and appears to be nothing more than a misconception that has propagated that the name "Yancey" was native to America
 (meaning that the name did not exist as such in the Old World)

Below are listed any known connections between Yanceys and Native Americans.
Most of these are due to intermarriage with persons who had some Native ancestry  
and this ususally occured in the 19th and 20th century.
