Division of land to Alfred Yancey, Rebecca Yancey, Philip Yancey, Penny Graves, Joel Yancey each 27 acres.

NOTES: Dennis J. Yancey: From the above info, as well as other records, It would appear that Philip Yancey had at least six children: Penny, Alfred, Joel, Edward A. G., Philip, Rebecca Yancey. Some accounts record a seventh child: Jechonias Yancey. It would seem though that at the death of Philip he had six children. By October 1813, the youngest child of Philip Yancey (Edward A.G. Yancey?) had died and the portion of the estate that had been set aside for him was redistributed in 5 parts for the five remainig children of Philip Yancey. Although there are reports to the contrary, it would appear that the husband of Penny (Penelope?) Yancey was John Graves.
