Minnie Ocia YEARWOOD (now deceased) was my friend and shared her husband's Family Bible record with me years ago. Wanting to help her discover her family, I did some genealogy research for her and still have the file.

Perhaps I can give you some of what she gave me and what I developed of her pedigree. I have some info on her EDWARDS line not included here...
