William R Yancey of Baldwin Co., ALOn
the 1850 Census of Baldwin County, Alabama is one William R. Yancey,
age 40 with wife Virginia, age 21 and children Frederick, age 14 (from
a prior marriage?); John, age 1; and William under age 1. The Father
was born in Tennessee and the mother was born in Florida. The children
were all born in Baldwin Co., AL. There is a marriage record of William
R. Yancey and Virginia Keyes (or Noyes?) 16 Mar 1848 in Baldwin Co.,
AL. The parentage of this William R. Yancey is very uncertain. Do
any of you have your own "mystery Yanceys" for which you are
trying to find additonal information or origin etc. Let me
know - and I will be happy to post the query.
