Yelvington Overby

Birth: Jan. 9, 1800
Madison County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Aug. 28, 1852
Daviess County
Kentucky, USA

Yelvington Overby was the Husband of Nancy Bassett Overby. They were the parents of Lucy E. Overby Hawley, Elizabeth Jane Overby Burnett, Napoleon B. Overby, Susan Ann Overby Hawley, and Mary M. Overby. Yelvington's parents might have been Absolem & Lucy Overby from Madison County, Kentucky.

Yelvington apparently sometimes used the nickname or abbreviation of "El" or "Ell". Oral family history that is quoted in some family trees suggests the "Y" was silent.

Headstones/ cemetery info confirm they are both buried at Yelvington Cemetery in Daviess County, KY However, census records for 1860 show that the widow Nancy Overby was living in Hancock County with her daughter and son-in-law (Susan Ann Overby Hawley and William Daniel Hawley, who are buried at Hawesville Cemetery in Hancock County).
