I just now received your message; I lost my last email address about a year ago when I forgot my password, after which another Greg McDaniel claimed it . So, my new email address is now
I'm grateful for your help as my Yarringtom line has been difficult to trace out of Texas back to Richmond, VA. So far, I've been able to find death certificates in Texas getting me back to my Great Grandmother Arianna Yarrington (Minnock) Roberts who died in Harris Co Texas ca 1933. Her father, Dr William A Minnock, Jr married Sophia Ann Felder (daughter of Dr Edmond Junius Felder) in Autauga Co, Al 1847. Dr William A Minnock, Jr was born in Richmond VA on 12 Feb 1822; he is ths son of Dr William A Minnock Sr and Eliza Duval Yarrington; they were married 14 Apr 1821 in Va according to the CumberlandCo VA marriage records . Family tradition has it that Edgar Allen Poe attended their wedding; they had a Duncan Phyfe table given to them as a wedding gift by Poe, he was a boarder in the Yarrington Boarding house at 12th St and Banks behind the Capital at Richmond VA. My recent visit to the Poe museum resulted in the staff identifying James Yarrington as the owner of the boarding house; he died at age 70 during the Civil War at Petersburg; his wife preceded him in death a fw years before... they are buried together on the northside at Shochoe Cemetery (Sp?). He would have been you Gr grandfather's brother?
I'm gratefull for your help,
Greg McDaniel of Greenville SC
