Yearta Family Genealogy Forum
Need the names of Abraham's parents, wife, and children. This Abraham Yearty was living in Jefferson Co., GA in 1802 (he was at least 18 years old then) and at least until 1805; an orphan named Jacob Yearty appeared with Abraham on the GA land lottery list for 1805. Who was Jacob? Abraham was in Pulaski Co., GA as early as 1818, and died there 5 May 1821. I'm trying to tie him to Polly Yearty who m. Joab Durham, probably in GA sometime before 1796.
This is not the Abraham Yearty who m. Eliza Wood and he is not the man who m. Molsey Dollar. One of these two Abraham's may have been his son.
I believe Polly Yearty was the earlier Abraham's sister or daughter. Supposedly, her father was named Abraham.
