College and University attendance by early members of the Yancey Family - pre 1850.

Though there may be a few names missing, this would seem to be a pretty comprehensive list.

Though when compared to all Yanceys who were born between 1700-1850 or so - the numbers may seem small compared to today's standards. The ratio I would think is pretty in line with the time period and place.
