This family seems to have lived in the section of Yancey that later became Mitchell County, so I don't have much hope that I will find anything in Yancey death records, however I will check. There is an article in "Heritage of the Toe River Valley" about them. It is too long and complicated to type, so send me your mailing address and I will copy for you.
Below is a list of the children from the 1850 & 60 Yancey census. Birthdate is based on 1850.
Maiden name of Sarah is from before mentioned article.
