I can agree that Yearwood/Earwood/Erwood/Erewood and a few of the Arwoods are all basically the same. I think the Arowood/Arrowood and most of the Arwoods are a different group.
It seems that all of our Earwoods and Yearwoods oldest ancestors all seem to have ties back to VA in some way or another like maybe their birth or birth of a child was in VA. While doing some Floyd research I ran across a will inventory for a Floyd that had been done in 1713 in Virginia by Thomas Earwood and another person. This is the oldest that I have sen anything on an Earwood. I am just positive that the John and William matriarchs of the Sweetwater, TN Yearwoods is the John and William that was in the 1790 Lincoln Co., NC Census.
I have uploaded a MS-Works 4.0 format and a text file to the File Cabinet on the Earwood Genealogical site. It is my attempt to try and tie all the Erwood/Earwood/Yearwood clans together. The one regret that I have is I called everyone Earwood. This site is located on
and you would need to become a member. It is totally free but you need a login and password. Get signed up by contacting David Beard at Then you can download the file which is pretty long and I know that I have made many errors along with errors that have been made by many of you folks that passed info to me. It should help
make some interesting conversations. Bill
