By the second wife they were John Rowzee, and Valentine.
1. Yelverton had four sons and four daughters. One of the daughters— Elizabeth—married her cousin, John Peyton Harrison; and Catherine married Captain William Bronaugh, of Stafford, who moved to Kanawha and is the father of a numerous family, the most of whom now live in Missouri. Of the sons of Yelverton, Henry was a pious Methodist preacher, and married a Miss Brent, of Fauquier; and another of his sons—Colonel Samuel Peyton—was the father of Yelverton, William, and Henry, all of whom were talented and pious ministers of the Methodist Church, and died young, leaving each one child.

One of his sons—Dr. Chandler Peyton—married Eliza B. Scott, the eldest daughter of the Rev. John Scott; and another son—Yelverton—married Margaret, the youngest daughter of the Rev. Mr. Scott. She, after his death, married Mr. Charles Lee, and then Mr. Glassell.
