The name "Fenner," or "Richard Fenner" comes from the name of a doctor of the late 1700s who delivered one or more children of the Yarborough family in Franklin County, NC. His name was Richard Fenner, and that name has been re-used through the centuries among the Yarboroughs-though I am surprised to learn it exists in Louisiana! The first Richard Fenner Yarborough was born the late 1700s, the son of Nathaniel Yarborough who came to NC from Virginia. RFY is my great-great-great grandfather.
