In Reply to: Gappa T. Yelverton by Judy Chancellor of 248

Notes: In about 1840 Gappa T. Yelverton and his brother-in-law, John B. Simmons, bought the land on which Elba is located from Ephraim King. They organized the Simmons Mercantile Company, the first store in Elba. On John B. Simmon's gravestone is the inscription, "Founder of Elba".

Through his "Talmadge" side the family is related to the Georgia Talmadges, including Gov. and Senators Eugene and Herman Talmadge.

He is my GGGrandfather, too.
