I Believe the Alice B. Wattenbarger list above is the one you are looking for. Her immediate neighbor is John and Salina "Yakely". Just a few households away is another Yakely family. This one with a "George A. Yakely" who is the right age. Here is the census information on this Yakely family:

Census Place: Greene County, Tennessee

George W. Yakely, occ: Farmer, age 40, born in Tennessee. His parents are both born in Tennessee.

Elizabeth Yakely, wife, age 42, born in Tennessee. Her father was born in Virginia, her mother in Tennessee.

J. Marion Yakely, son, age 17, born in Tennessee.

Sarah M. Yakely, daughter, age 13, born in Tennessee.

"George A. Yakely", son, age 10, born in Tennessee.

Cordelia T. Yakely, daughter, age 2, born in Tennessee.

Alice B. Wattenbarger is my 3rd cousin twice removed. If you think this is your Alice Belvadora Wattenbarger, please email me. I would like to share more information with you. I haven't added the Yakely family to my data base yet. I'm waiting to hear from you for confirmation but I'm sure this is the family you are researching.
