Please note that this and some other grave markers in this cemetery are NOT original markers - but were placed maybe even 100 years later - dates therefore on these markers are NOT totally reliable. The birth date of Lewis D Yancey seems very questionable.

Family lore has it that the family came from Wales - but proof is lacking. Lewis may have been the son of a Charles Yancey - but again solid proof is lacking.
