Andrew Yearwood, Habersham County, GA

After many diligent hours of research and analysis, I have prepared the proposed list of children for Andrew and Sarah (Sandal) Yearwood of Habersham County, GA. Andrew is the only Yearwood (variation Earwood) listed in the 1820 GA Census, and seems to be the progenitor of most of the Yearwoods in Georgia. My source is primarily the Census schedules for GA from 1820 through 1880, but in some cases I used other court documents/deeds from Habersham and surrounding counties to verify approximate ages.

Since no formal/legal document such as a will or other probate records exists for Andrew Yearwood, the following is the most complete list of children I have seen:

1. Alexander born ca 1796
2. Mary (Polly) born 1802 married Abel Taylor 1/1/1821
3. Perry (my line)born 1803 married Elizabeth ca 1825
4. George W. born ca 1805 married Eva Dooly 10/8/1830
5. Bird born 1808 married Sarah Denny ca 1830
6. Jerusha born 1810 married Abner Taylor
7. Nancy born 1813 married Harrsion Highfill 8/6/1833
8. Milly born ca 1814 married Joseph Jackson 10/11/1832
9. Andrew J. born ca 1816
10. Tilman born 1818 married Susan Whitehead 9/13/1839
11. Oliver S. born ca 1820 married Martha
12. Lewis Allen born 1822 married Letha Smith
13. Starling born 1823 married Martha
14. Archibald born 1825 married Susan Barr
15. T.S. born ca 1829

I also believe Andrew's father to be Robert Yearwood, believed to be born in 1752 is Surrey County, VA. His parents are believed to be John and Katharine Yearwood, both of whom would have been born ca 1720 - 1730.

If anyone has info to verify/improve any of the above please let me know.
