       My family has records of 3 brothers migrating to America from Ireland.
       John B Yearwood was one of them from whom I am descended.
       The Yearwoods were given confiscated land in Lreland by the English king for service rendered.
       John was born in 1742 in Ireland.
       When the 3 brothers came to America the settled in the Pennsylvania area on another parcel of land from the king. At the time of the signing of the Declaration of Indepence, the moved East. One brother stayed in East TN, another moved to Georgia and the third settled in middle TN- Rutherford-Cannon Counties.
