The other brothers had families and tis said by grandfather all the Yarbro familys in the U.S. sprang from them and all of the names are akin.

I must give you a history of my marriage.  I married MARY ELIZABETH FISHER, DAUGHTER OF JACOB F.

Dear Kay, Hi cuz!
I heard from my sister this morning, that she had contacted you, after I emailed her about your web site. I thinkshe has a better record of the family than I have as she's using some sort of software geared to genealogy. She also has my copy of the History of Decatur County, published 1995 (I think), that details our line. I did a lot of the editing for the family on the articles we submitted. My uncle, Charles Henry Yarbro is our dedicated family historian. He has done a lot of research on the family, but he doesn't have a computer yet. I imagine this will boosthis interest in online genealogy and corrspondence! By the way, there is a National Yarbrough Conference being held in Memphis, Tennessee in late October. I'll attempt to get the dates and info for you if wish.I'm sending a jpeg file of John Lawson Yarbro, his wife Dora Vise and their children. My grandfather is on the far right in the pix. I just found a copy of this pix with names identifying family members, that I did several years ago.

And

I just located this info on my Jazz drive. Several of the edits I did for the Decatur County History book regarding information on the family.

Yarbro Family - Decatur County History

The Yarbro family has an ancient name and history , going back to Anglo Saxon times in England. It is believed the amily's early ancestors came to Lincolnshire as Norse Viking invaders around 1000 AD. From the Eleventh century onward, the name Yarborough appears in historical records, linked either to somenotable person or with a particular place.In the mid-1600's, Richard Yarborough immigrated from England to Virginia. He lived and prospered until his death at age 87 in 1702. His grave is the oldest known in the Petersburg Cemetery. Through the years Richard was joined by other English family. The American family, (all spellings), are descended from Richard and kin. They numbered 25.000 in the USA by 1992! The Decatur County Yarbro Family migrated from North Carolina in the early 1820's.Included in this migration were the families of Edmund and Sophia Gossett Yarbrough. Edmund was born in Anson
County, North Carolina in 1776, and his wife Sophia, was born in Maryland in 1771. They lived here until their deaths in 1850 and 1841.
Edmund's children and grandchildren played a large role in settling and populating Decatur County, particularly William -"Master Bill", Henry, and Aquilla. They established Yarbro's Landing and moved throughout the county, marrying cousins and into most other
County families. William's daughter, Sophia, married Jake Fisher and their daughter, Mary Elizabeth, wed cousin Joseph Gallatin
Yarbro. Mary Yarbro of this union, married William Smith, leading the large and prominent Smith Family in the county.
Henry, wed Delilah Crawley. They settled on Whites' Creek, had 14 children and established the Yarbro Family Cemetery. They are buried there with over 50 descendants. Aquilla and his wife, Winifred, moved to the Parsons area. The Yarbros originating there are their descendants. Henry's children, playing a large role in the County's history, included Milton Jasper, Lorenzo "Rance" Dow,
James, Rufus Martin, Joseph Gallatin, and John Lawson. One son, died for the Confederacy and others continued the trek West.
Two sets of children came from Jasper's marriages; Dr. "Rance" moved to Eva; Rufus, father of Dudley, joined the Mormons; and Joseph Gallatin's sons became area leaders. John Lawson, who married Dora Vise, daughter of George Hubbard and Tennessee Wayne Lafferty Vise, remained on the family farm of over 100 years. Their children and spouses are: Henry-Ethel Wallace; Welborn-Gladys Crawley; Alfred-(never married); Tennessee Belle-Jim England; Rosetta Pearl-Perry Thompson; John Garrett-Leora Keeton; Guy-Clara Swift; and Joe Hubbard-Allie Mae Tate. A reunion and Yarbro Family Cemetery Days are held annually at Decaturville and Whites' Creek, a National Yarbrough Conference is held in some major metropolitan area each year. Latest burials in the Yarbro graveyard are "Bud" Gettis Kindle, Walter Stanley Yarbro, Martha Yarbro Marsh and daughter Elizabeth Swift Vining Bivens, and neighbors Elvis and Mabel Ivy Turnbo."Who Dares Wins" is the Yarbro family motto, taken from an early English family crest. -Charles Henry Yarbro

__________________________

GUY YARBRO
Guy Yarbro, native of Decatur County, met his future bride, Lucy Clara Swift, when they were students at Professor Tucker's Academy at Scotts Hill. They were wed in a buggy, just across the line in Decatur County- Yarbro's license was issued in his home county. Yarbro continued his education at Bowling Green (KY) Business College before returning home and teaching school. Later he entered politics and was elected Decatur County Court Clerk. He and his brother, Alfred David, were enterprising young men and by relying on their farm background, began investing in land, timber, livestock and general merchandising. Their Uncle Eli Vise was their mentor. Their siblings were Henry Yarbro, Welborn Yarbro, John G. Yarbro, Joe H. Yarbro, Tennessee Yarbro England and Pearl Yarbro Thompson. All eight are deceased in 1995. The two entrepreneurs interest was whetted by bargain land prices in the Mississippi River lowlands, and in the
early 1920's bought Menglewood Box Company lands including the entire mill village of Menglewood, some 20miles west of Dyersburg on the Obion River.Guy Yarbro was chosen to make the move, and prompted probably the last cattle-livestock, "Wagon Train West",
in West Tennessee. Yarbro, on horseback, (he never learned to drive in his 84 years), gathered drovers, white and black families, cattle, horses, mules, hogs, and dogs for the 120 mile trek. Wagons were loaded with household plunder, livestock feed, men, women, and children. A designated cook maintained a "chuck wagon" with foodstuffs. It was said that all prepared food was eaten the first night out.
The wagon train traveled the road routes through villages to Jackson and Dyersburg, and if lucky, putting up at night in some farmer's pasture or lot. The hardest day for the weary travelers and livestock was from Dyersburg to Menglewood because of the unimproved roads. Previously, in bad weather, Menglewood was reached by train. Mrs. Yarbro and six children remained in Decaturville where the older ones were in school. They were (including all spouses), first born, Malcolm Ross, b.1906, m. to first wife: Mary Alice "Mae" Smith and second wife: Ruth Yarbro Gobelet; Walter Rudolph, m.Maude Smith; Dora Isabelle, m. Barney E. Twilla; George Lawson, m. Frances
Hansbrough; Martha Elizabeth, m. first-Jimmy C. McCullough, second-Gordon Vining, third- Albert J. Marsh; John Lee, Sr., m. Ollie Mae "Cissie" Alley; Dyer County born: Charles Henry, m. Frances Ann Curry; and Welborn Jacob, never married. Survivors in 1995 were Dora Twilla, John L. and Cissie Yarbro, Charles H. Yarbro, and Frances Yarbro, all of Dyersburg; Frances Ann Yarbro of Memphis, Albert Marsh of Nashville and Ruth Yarbro of Decatur County. (still remaining in Sept 99)(my note) The family was reunited at Menglewood in 1925. Guy Yarbro, in his published obituary was called "a legend in his own lifetime". He was said to be the largest
individual land owner in West Tennessee. He was a loyal member of the First United Methodist Church, served Dyer County Court as a magistrate, civic and school leader and bank director. In employment , housing, medical and social care, especially during the Great Depression of the 1930's and during historic Mississippi River floods, his efforts for large numbers of families and individuals was legendary. During floods he farmed and rented pastures on high ground around Dyersburg, (areas now occupied by businesses, shopping centers, malls and factories) He was president of the Dyer County Levee Board and his proudest accomplishment was the completion of the
main line levee system. He contributed more levee rights of way than sold, put forth efforts to securing Interstate 155 and the Mississippi River Bridge to Missouri. Almost every view from 155 from Newbern to Dyersburg to Caruthersville, Missouri; including the main and little levee system, Obion River work, Guy Yarbro Road, from old Hwy 20 to the Booth spoint slab, the Great River Road and vast productive farm fields have a Guy Yarbro "touch". He never lost his love for his Decatur County heritage, family and home. At his death he owned the family home place and home. He hosted holiday and other gatherings there including an Annual Squirrel Hunt for family and friends, attending the last even though already seriously ill. He and "Miss Clara" are buried side-by-side with other family at Fairview Cemetery in Dyersburg. Charles Henry Yarbro owns and lives in the old Dyersburg home and the land where Menglewood once stood.

(The 1850 census -If I can find it, shows that William Yarbrough has two grandchildren in his home, one was a "Fisher child" age 11, and the other was George W. Wooten age 12) Both listed as grandchildren.  The Fisher grandchild was listed born in Ark.



 
 




 

James T Yarbrough, b. 3-8-1815, TN, married Nancy Atcheson 2-4-1840 Henry Co, TN. He married again to Louisa Childress/ers 4-27-1845
in Benton Co. TN. The 1850 Census shows James & Louisa Yarbro in Decatur Co. TN with children: J L ? m/age 11, F J f/age 9, & Nancy
age 7. Also James age 1 year. Neighbors were Aquilla (a61) & Winny (a58) Yarbro.

Then the 1870 census shows James & Louisa C Yarbrough in White Co., AR & in 1890 James & Louisa Yarborough lived in Logan Co.,
AR. It was later in that decade that they moved to Johnson Co, AR with their sons Levi (my grandfather)& James T who homesteaded
what became Yarbrough Mountain. They are both buried there in Sherman cemetery as James T and L C Yarbrough.

Of the 2nd marriage I can be certain but if the 1st marr info is not correct, as I see there are other opinions, please let me know. My father
(age 92) says he was told that James T was marr twice. I 'feel' like my info is correct bec the last dau was named Nancy same as mother
which I understand was customary following death fr childbirth. And the dates are 'in line'. Have had no trace of these 3 children since
however.
Children of James & Louisa: James T (1848), Joshua (1851), William Meredith (1853), Elizabeth (1856), Phelix (Felix) Moses (1858), Lotilla
'Sis'(Moore)(1860), Mary Jane 'Molly'(Goad)(1863), John & Louisa (1866), Levi Daniel (1868), & David Pinkney 'Pink'(1871)
Joshua, Moses & Elizabeth were young adults when their parents moved to Logan Co. & are said to have remained in White Co. Searcy
AR area. I would welcome any info on them.
I am trilled to see others are researching the Arkansas lines. Looking forward to meeting many of you at the Yarbrough convention in
Memphis Oct 21-24.

Hello,
My maternal great grandfather was a Jim Booker of Bon Aqua, Tennessee. Fought for Confederacy, was wounded and
discharged, became preacher, possibly Nazerine, post war. (bough-arbor preacher???) Had several children. Recall, Vincent
(Vinnie) moved to Detroit in early 1920's. Another married a Dr Woods of Bon Aqua. My grandmother, Ollie Mae, moved to
Nashville and married Golden Cornealous Alley, about 1919-1920.
I have some more sketchy info about Jim and family that I can't find at the moment. I should of listened to mother when she was
still able to recall this information. All help appreciated!
