I'm researching my paternal grandmother's genealogy. Her surname was Yearian, and most of us believe her given names were Rillah Elizabeth. But some family members claim that her first name was Amarilla or Amarillo. She was probably born in the 1880s, possibly in or around Wythe County, Va.. There's also a chance that her birthplace was in eastern Kentucky or southern West Virginia.

Later, perhaps around the turn of the century, she married Wesley Fugate and lived in Clay and Kanawha counties of West Virginia for the remainder of her life.

Hope someone out there can provide the names of Grandma's parents and/or information that might help me locate her birthplace.

Thanks for your time.
