"Page 13 - Section A
"located in yard of large house on south side of County Road 312 - no evidence of graves today. Local resident was told that Thomas Yancey and several Yancey family members (his wife and 2 children) were buried here. Graves were visible years ago but not today."

Wife: Sarah Hicks Yancey
children probably buried on property:
Helenan Yancey (1827-1848)
Possibly Curren Yancey (1812-1836?)

DJY: It is quite possible that slaves of Thomas Yancey may have also been buried on the property.
