Yielding, John/S.David Lonoke AR
Posted by: Merry Blanchard Date: December 22, 1999 at 20:26:40
  of 355

I am looking for Arkansas Yieldings.
1860 Blount Co. AL census;
William Yielding B-1842 AL
Tolitha (Webb) Yielding B-1841 GA
John B. born-1860,Simon David b-1858, L.Maria 1862, all in Blount.

1862 William S or T Yielding dies CSA Peachtree Creek,AL 29th AL Inf. Co.C
(Tolitha's brother James same unit also dies
1862, she is on his affidavit)

1866 Tolitha Yielding marries a Wade, Janie born 1866 in Alabama.

1870 Tolitha marries John Jasper Yielding prob. Tifton Co.TN 1st son William Yielding is born 1870 TN., Nicie Ann born 1872 Potts Camp,Marshall MS (my gr grandmother),Josie L. born 1874.
At this point I don't know if John J. Yielding died in MS or he left to Prairie or Lonoke Co. AR.
1876 Tolitha marries Silas A. Laws,Marshall Co.MS. Rosa B.1878, George, Thomas Clay.

From the Query data From AR Family Historian 1962-1992, I found the following;
S. David Born 1857 AL
S. David Rec. 1882 Des Arc, Prarie Co.AR (S.David marries a Jennie Farrow in Marshall Co.MS)
S.David died 1905 Lonoke Co.AR
John B. born 1858 AL
Martha Farrow Yielding 1880 Benton Co.MS & 1900 Potts Camp MS. (dont know who this is)

Iam researching the family of John Jasper Yielding and Tolitha Cumy Webb Yielding.
Census records of the children state their father was born in AL. I do not have a census record with John in it. Family tales state John was a brother of William, it this is so he would be a son of TML. There is a son,Jasper 4 years younger than William, who married a Lucinda, I don't know the background on this Jasper.
Anyone with information on this family or any of the above, please contact me at
