Birth: Jun. 27, 1823
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jan., 1907
Houston County
Texas, USA

Joseph Randolf, born 31, January, 1817, died March 26, 1867. He married Phoebe Clementine Crawford on February 3, 1840. She was born June 27, 1823, and died January 1907.
They were the parents of eleven children who were the subject of an article published in the Morning News September 20, 1935, bearing this date line "Grapeland, Houston County, Texas September 19" and the headline "Longevity Record Boosted by Eight in this Family from 73 to 93." The article carried a picture of Scott Yarbrough, Joseph S. Yarbrough, Miss Helen K. Yarbrough, Mrs. Melissa Herod, Mrs. Belle Owens and Mrs. George Whitley with the notation that Mrs. Mary Morris and Sam Houston Yarbrough were not present when the picture was taken.
Quoting the article in part: "The eight surviving children of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Randolph Yarbrough, ranging from 73 to 93, form a record of longevity perhaps unequalled in this section of Texas. Yarbrough, son of the operator of the first hotel at Crockett and one of the earliest settlers of the state, enlisted in the Texas forces when he was eighteen and fought in the Battle of San Jacinto. He was one of the guard that took General Santa Anna to General Sam Houston after his capture. (note: I have never seen this documented) He married Mrs. Phoebe Clementine Yarbrough in 1840 and they lived in Anderson and Cherokee Counties, moved to Louisiana and to Houston County, settling near Crockett. (note: one of their children was born in LA, but at present I don't know which one) During the Civil War, the husband died at the age of fifty, leaving a wife and eleven children. (note: I have a old letter from ? stating that Joseph Randolf was buried at the home place in ?. This would explain why he is not listed in the Houston County Cemetery Book.)

You are not forgotten, loved one, nor will you ever be; as long as life and memory last, we will remember thee. We miss you now, our hearts are sore. As time goes by, we'll miss you more. Your gentle face, no one can fill your vacant place.
