They came to Marion Co. Illinois from Tenn. between 1850 and 1855. James VanCleve Bruce married Elizabeth Hannah 6 Oct 1859 and Samuel T Bruce married Martha J. 12 Sept 1855 in Marion Co. James and Sam also joined the war together. I have not had a chance to research the other Yandell siblings. Hope this helps
