Below is a duplicate of info I posted on this forum a few years back to a lady who was researching William Riley Yearwood. I think it equally could apply to your line:

The 1820 & 1830 South Carolina shows just one (Y)Earwood: Thomas in York County.

1830 York County
Thomas Earwood
3 males under 5, 5 males 5-10, 1 male 20-30, 1 male 50-60
1 female under 5, 2 females 10-15, 1 female 15-20, 3 females 20-30, 1 female 50-60

1840 York County
Thomas Earwood
1 male 10-15, 3 males 15-20, 1 male 50-60, 1 female 50-60

1840 Union County SC
Benjamin Earwood
1 male under 5, 1 male 30-40, 3 female 5-10, 1 female 40-50

1850 Murray County Georgia
Yearwood, Barton 30 NC

Yearwood, Thomas 80 NC

I think that this Thomas is a likely candidate to be the father of your William Riley (but NO I don't have PROOF)
1)Notice that this was the only (Y)Earwood in SC from 1820 to 1840 old enough to be W.R.'s father.
2)Notice that this Thomas was in Georgia in 1850 and you mentioned that your W.R. lived in Georgia in 1853.
3)Notice the Barton Yearwood listed nearby in 1850--you mentioned a Samuel BARTON Yearwood? Perhaps, this Barton is another son of Thomas and a brother to your W.R.??
4)You stated that your W.R.'s parents were born in NORTH Carolina. This Thomas was born in NC. In the 1810 census, he was listed in Lincoln Co NC.
