Subject: Seeking info on Pelham J. Yarbrough and Byram Yarbrough
Date: Tue, 06 Jul 2004 21:40:44 -0500 (CDT)
I am seeking information on:
Pelham John Yarbrough, b. 1779 in North Carolina and died 1837
in Austin, TX. His wife was Lucy Kumalt, b. 1778 in South Carolina.
The name Kumalt seems to be extremely rare. Was Lucy Kumalt an
Pelham's son Byram Yarbrough, b. 1807 in South Carolina and
died in 1877 in Cooke County, TX was married to Abigail "Abby" D. Poor.
Her dates are b. 1810 in Kentucky and d. 1854 in Cooke County, TX.
Sources indicate that Abby Poor was full blood Cherokee.
Is there a procedure for formally documenting or certifying
this Indian heritage?
Any information greatly appreciated.
