1910 census shows Sarah is second marriage for James. 1880 census shows birth location for mother of Benton is different. Too bad no one knew the name of his mother when he died.

I went through the index for anyone named Yankie who died in Limestone Co, TX, only two females and one was Sarah. Then I tried anyone named Yankie who died in 1916, no matches, then I tried Yankie (and it comes up with various spellings, so that's covered) and no one matched James Franklin Yankie. Are you sure he died in TX? If he was on a trip and died outside of TX that is where his death would be recorded. My gr grandfather lived and is buried in Orange Co, CA, but he was on a trip with his son and died in Oregon - that's where his death is recorded.
