Though many of us have wanted to believe that Yeazel (or any variation of that spelling) is attached to the VanYsselsteins, I do not find any documentation to support that. I do find a Jacob Yeazle in the Brake/Claypool's rebellion and he was in Hampshire Co, Virginia. For the most part, these men were German. I believe Jacob "Y" is also found in Pennsylvania, I don't find anything with him in New York where the Yselsteyns were located. Did he change his name when in Pa or Va? If so, why?
I found another article from an old ancestor's notes that would indicate they were German and immigrated to Va. I will have to look for that.
Do you have any source for the change in name?
