While looking through a baby names site, I discovered that Anders is a nickname for Andrew.
In the 1800 Census of Pendleton District, SC, Robert (Y)Earwood is listed beside a neighbor H. Anders (Y)Earwood. I have thought that H. Anders was a brother to Andrew, but it appears that this is actually Andrew recorded using his nickname. He was 25 at the time. Certainly, Robert would not have named one son with a nickname of another son.
In the household with Andrew (Anders) is one female born 1774 to 1784. This matches his wife, Sarah's, age in the 1850 Census, and also matches the oldest son's, George's, birth year of 1800 from the 1850 Franklin County, MO census.
So we have the following timeline for Andrew Yearwood:
1775 born in Virginia
1791 16 years old in Washington County, GA
1794 19 years old in Warren County, GA on Big Creek & Ogeechee River
1800 25 years old in Pendleton District, SC on Little Beaverdam Creek & Tugaloo River
1805 30 years old in Franklin County, GA on Toccoa Creek near Tugaloo River
1811 36 years old in Franklin County, GA on North Fork Toccoa Creek
1818 43 years old same place now Habersham County, GA
1860 85 years old died at homeplace
