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 erroneously from the statement that the name "Yancey" was native
to America (meaning that the name did not exist as such in the Old World)
Below are listed various known connections between Yanceys and Native Americans.
