From what I can gather, any relation would be distant. Many of us believe, but can't prove without circumstantial evidence, that Andrew's father was Robert Yearwood born in 1752 in Surry County, VA to John and Katherine Yearwood. Robert arrives in Washington County, GA by 1791 as he shows up in the Augusta Chronicle in September 1791 for not paying poll tax. Three years later, Andrew pays tax on 300 acre plantation in southwest Warren County, GA, just across the Ogeechee River from Washington County. Robert and Andrew are together again on Toccoa Creek, Franklin County, GA in 1802/1805 according to Tax Digests.
I believe the Earwoods in the 1790 Census are the same set that are refered to as the "Sweetwater Valley" Yearwoods, but I have not researched these Yearwoods at all. If this is so, they descended from a William Yearwood that arrived in Charleston, SC around 1730/1740. It is a possibility that this William could be a brother to my John, but that is pure speculation.
I only know of the NC Earwoods, and my Robert Yearwood in 1790. Do you know of any others that were in other states?
