How wonderful to read your reply! I have the 1850 Washington County, Miss. US Census and have these Yergers in 3 neighboring homes:
House #34 was Jacob S. Yerger, with Mary H.R.; George S.; William A.; Harry; Boren;
In House #35 was William Yerger; Malvina H.;
James R.; William,Jr.; Louis; Bettie; and Fanny. Also, a Henry T. Rucks was listed as overseer.
In House #36 was Orville Yerger; Virginia; and Henry S.
This is the one I am trying to follow. I know Henry S. was named for her father, the Rev. Henry Sale who likely performed the marriage ceremony for them about 1848 in Fayette County, Tenn.
What is not clear to me yet is why he seemingly moved so often! I have an Orville on the 1860 census of Marion County, Texas.
He is shown on the Civil War roster as a Capt in the Comy (Commisary?) dept of CSA.
I have an Orville B on the 1870 Gallatin Co, Ky US Census
And, I have an Orville on the 1891 Tennessee Voters' List in Shelby Co., Tennessee!
I have a zillion more questions and I need to tell you I do not understand, yet, how to use a GED-Com file. I do use FamilyTreeMaker 8.0.
My primary effort is to discover what children he and Virginia Sale Yerger had and what happened to them, and to find her 1880 census data where the birthplace of her parents would be entered.
We are trying to locate her grandparents as well as Orville's.
You have been very encouraging that there is a possibility of an answer out there.
