I have a large database of Yearouts from Tennessee. Would be quite interested in exchanging information with you. I would like to also forwarn you concering the book by Glenn Alvin Yearout, my own direct line was really incorrect in this book. Mr. Yearout supposedly sent out letters to many of the Yearouts asking for their direct lines. A few, my family such as, lied about their connections and it took me over 4 years of HARD RESEARCH to link, but all can be proven now via death, marriage, obits, etc. Perhaps your own family gave correct info. But never, and i mean never, take another person's word as gospel truth. These books are simply guides to lead. RESEARCH your direct lines yourself. Use certified death records, true marriage records, ask lookup volunteers for obit lookups.
I will be quite glad to send whatever info I have and it is OK that you write me direct:
Likely, you link to my own info. PLEASE do write me.
