Yarbrough Family Genealogy Forum
thanks for the reply. I found an old map of Warren co NC. It did not say what year it represented but it was probably the 1780's but it could have been Bute co NC which became Warren co NC in 1779. Anyway there was a Henry Yarbrough listed and I beieve a Lewis Yarbrough listed. IT showed wehre their land was. I can not find the map that showed that. My ancestor George Wray bought land in Brunswick co Va in 1769 from a Henry Yarbrough. Brunswick co Va is the county just north of Warren co NC. He sold his land in Brunswick co Va in 1777 and bought land in Bute co NC in 1778 which became Warren co NC in 1779. I am wondering if it was the same Henry Yarbrough. The deed said Herny Yarbrough of Buckingham co Va but I am sure sometimes a person was from one county and bought land in another county and maybe they lived there a short time. I also found a Herny Yarbrough in Burnswick co Va about the same time. Since the land George Wray bought in Brunswick co Va from Henry Yarbrough was on Quarrel Swamp which was in southeast Brunswick co Va about three miles north of the Warren co NC line he did not move far since the land he bought in Warren co NC was about two miles south of the Brunswick co Va line. Maybe it was the same Herny Yarbrough. thanks, Ross
