John Swanson Yarbrough - Yarbrough Bend

John Swanson Yarbrough (1774 - 1862) settled in Yarbrough Bend, McMullen County, Texas about 1858. This was the first settlement of McMullen County. He brought with him his 3rd known wife Francis Coker/Unknown. Francis was previously married to a Unknown Tope and a Unknown Moore. John Swanson Yarbrough had previously lived in Houston Co., TX (about 1836 - 1850) Gonzales County, TX (about 1850 - 1855), Atascosa County, TX (about 1855 - 1858). Both Swanson & Francis were buried in the Yarbrough Cemetery, but this cemetery was moved to Hill Top Cemetery, Tilden, McMullen Co., TX in 1982.

Among the children that lived at Yarbrough Bend were:
Alfred Yarbrough born 1828 in AR
David Yarbrough born about 1832 in TX
Lorenzo Dow Yarbrough born 1840 in Houston Co., TX
Mary Ann "Polly" Tope born about 1838 in AR
James Henry "Jim" Tope born 1840 in AR
John M. Moore born 1842 in AR.

I am working on the descendants of John Swanson Yarbrough and Francis Coker Tope Moore Yarbrough. I am a descendant of Lorenzo Dow Yarbrough that married Nancy Parilee White.
