In Reply to: Re: Yarnell Family in Knox County, Tennessee by Carol Lee Yarbrough of 319

I've recently been "working backwards" to discover my 94 year old grandmother's family who moved from Moniteau County to Oklahoma in 1908-9, shortly after Oklahoma became a state. Grandmother's name is Alma Geneva Yarnell Compton, her parents were Leroy Francis & Dessie Mae Kenney Yarnell. She believes her grandfather's name was Josh and was he was married to a Mary Jane (?).

As to your question regarding Jane Yarnell Standefer's parents. According to a cemetery site at GEDCOM with accompanying tombstone inscriptions, Jane's parents were Mordecai M.(d.7-30-1846 in his 79th year) and Jane (Duncan) Yarnell (d. 11-29-1846 in her 74th year. It appears their children were Martha Patsy d. 9-27-1877, June Yarnell Standefer d. 3-9-1852, Ann Yarnell Gamble d 10-16-1846, Ellen Idell d 4-1-1857, Henry J. d. 5-12-1866, Isbel d 3-12-1852 & Virginia W. d 4-15-1869.

My grandmother's sister who died in infancy, Thelma, daughter of Lee & Dessie died in 1907 just before the family moved to Oklahoma to where they farmed. My grandmother taught in early day Oklahoma One-Room schools. I'm just not exactly sure how we fit in with the Moniteau County, Missouri Yarnells. I do know our Oklahoma branch came from there as Oklahoma became a state and the western and west-central counties were settled. Until the mid 1980's grandmother had aunts and cousins on the Kenney side that she visited and corresponded with frequently in Tipton, Clarksburg and the surrounding area. Her younger sister is buried at what is referred on the gedcom site as the North Sappington Cemetery, which I believe was just outside Clarksburg.

If anyone has pointers for a "newby" at this type of searching, or a clue as to where we fit in with the Moniteau County, Missouri Yarnell's I'd appreciate your advice or suggestions.
