Hi Margaret...
Since I last corresponded with you, I discovered new information about my Yarrington Family in Richmond VA. One of the Richmond references indicates Mrs Yarrington ran a boarding house where Edgar Allen Poe resided (with his cousin who he eventually married and his Aunt). No mention is made of Mrs Yarrington's husband (perhaps he died?).

When did Elizabeth Spears husband die? Was he listed in the census you mention after 1840 in the same household along with Elizabeth in Alabama ( or had he died before 1840?).

Could my ancestor Elizabeth Yarrington actually be Elizabeth (Spears) Yarrington who was the same Elizabeth Yarrington that ran the boarding house in Richmond? Its a long shot but I noticed my gr grandmother Anna was actually named Arianna Yarrington Minnock who perhaps was named after Elizabeth Spears mother "Arriana" as I believed you mentioned?
Thanks, Greg
