Joseph Yeilding: Hanceville Pioneer
"Cullman County Across the Years"
by Margaret Jean Jones
"Seventy-one-year-old Joseph Yeilding had already had an illustrious career as a pioneer-educator in North Alabama and the military when he bought a 1080-acre farm seven miles northeast of Hanceville in 1875. The son of an Englishman, Richard Yeilding, Joeph was born in North Carolina in 1804. As a young man, he fought in several Indian campaigns and later the Mexican War which broke out in 1845 following Texas' admittance to the union. In between times, he settled in Cotaco Valley in Morgan County, Alabama and taught school in Morgan, Blount and Madison Counties. Although nearly sixty years old when the Civil War broke out, he volunteered for service in the Confederacy and served in Gen. Joe Wheeler's cavalry. Joseph Yeilding's first wife was Mary McCutcheon. They had four children. His second wife was Chasey M. Barlett. To this marriage were also born four children: John, Nancy (Glasscock), William M. (a school teacher in Cullman County until his untimely death) and Bethany (Turner). Joseph's grandaughter, Mrs. Ezma G. Bice, recalls hearing her mother say that when Joseph first came to Cotaco Vally he had to travel all the way to Huntsville to sell butter and buy staples. He traveled by horseback, camping out one night each way. He often encountered Indians along the Tennessee River. Joseph Yeilding was active in the Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church and donated the property for the Duck River Cemetery. He died in 1883 at the age of 79 and is buried at Duck River Baptist Church Cemetery in Walter, Cullman Co., Alabama.

John Yeilding, M.D.
"Cullman County Across the Years"
by Margaret Jean Jones
John Yeilding, the oldest child of Joseph and Chasey B. Yeilding, was born at Blue Springs in Morgan County, Alabama in 1862. He received his early education in Morgan County and Fowler's Cove Academy in Blount County, Alabama. He received his medical training at the University of Alabama Meical Dept. at Mobile and the U. S. Grant University Medical Dept. in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he was graduated. Dr. Yeilding's medical practice in Cullman was four years old when the Spanish-American War broke out in 1898. He enlisted for service in the Hospital Corps 7th Division and served one year. He returned to Hanceville in 1900 where he set up practice as physician and surgeon for the L & N Railroad Co. In addition to his medical practice, he owned and operated a drug store at Hanceville until his death in 1944. He never married. Mrs. Ezma G. Bice recalls that her uncle was a true friend to the poor and never refused a call although he often never received any pay for his services. He traveled by horse and buggy and often allowed his young nieces and nephews to accompany him on his rounds. Mrs. Bice laughingly recalls the time he forgot and left her at a patient's home. She had cried herself to sleep by the time he returned for her.
