Yearwood Family Genealogy Forum
When did William Riley move to MO? If he was born in SC in 1801, he very well could have been a son of Andrew Yearwood (b.1775), of Virginia who settled in Habersham County. Andrew and his father lived in Pendleton, SC in 1800 according to Census.
Andrew's oldest son George (b. 1800) moved to Franklin County, MO by 1850. Could William be the reason George moved to MO? Most of Andrew's children remained in GA, and in the general area of Habersham County, which is why MO connection seemed unusual for George.
