Hi, Pixmom! I've found Yelverton's in AL, AK, CA, FL, GA, MS, LA, TX, VA, NY, Australia & South Africa, maybe more places. The largest concentration is in NC, next in MS. Do you know if the Yelverton's came into VA before going down into NC? Perhaps they lived on the land that was disputed between VA & NC in the late 1600's. Do you know the Y's around Eureka, NC? Have you been to the Yelverton United Methodist Church near there?
