May I make a suggestion? Dates in your query would help to narrow searches. I tried Mary because you did give her maiden name, so I could tell if I had the right lady.

TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 --;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable -- You can view digitized copy of original death record, see more details, make copies and look for others, too.

Since Mary died in 1936 I figured she would be on the 1930 census, and maybe Robert, too. I followed Robert & family back through census from 1930, 1920, 1910 and 1900 in Milam Co, TX. I think you misread his birth year on the 1900 census, it reads 1857.

1880 census Brazos Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

R. F. YARDLY Self S Male W 22 TN Farmer TN TN
W. D. YARDLY Brother S Male W 20 TN Farmer TN TN
J. F. WINDSOR Other S Male W 26 AL Farm Laborer SC GA

1860 census Rutherford Co, TN:

Yardley, W.C., 23, b TN - land 500/personal 700
" Margaret, 19, b TN
" Robert, 2, b TN

Soldiers and Sailors site shows a William C. Yardley, Confederate, 2nd Reg TN Inf (Robisons)(Walker Legion)

I Googled him and found on Ancestry -- William C. Yardley entered as a Corporal, Company F, Tennessee 2nd Infantry Regiment.

If you want more on him, you might post a query on the Civil War GenForum.

Check out Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- -- Enter Yardley, William, born Tennessee. Someone has him with his parents, no children shown. I'd contact that submitter find out his source for that information.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
