David was the third child born to David Yancey Sr. and Rachel Davis Medearis Yancey. He married a neighbor girl, Margaret Emmaline (Emma) Woodward, on June 5, 1856. He served in the Confederate Army. They were married 61 years.
Announcement printed in the local newspaper:
YANCEY-Death visited my home on June 22, 1917, and claimed my precious husband. No home was happier than ours. He was the father of twelve children, of whom nine are left to mourn his death. His earnest prayer was that he might live to raise his children to be Christians, and his prayer was answered. He was the pride of our home and was always ready to help those who were in need. He always had a kind word for everyone. He has gone to that place where sad partings are no more. Brother J.H. Lawson conducted the funeral services.
MRS. EMMA YANCEY
