HARVEY YEARY IS MY THIRD COUSIN ALSO. MY DAD AND HIS DAD WERE FIRST COUSINS. MY GRANDMOTHER'S NAME WAS DORA YEARY. SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF HENRY CARL & SARAH MINTER YEARY. SHE MARRIED GEORGE WASHINGTON CAMPBELL. THEY HAD THREE CHILDREN. ELLA, CURNIA, & CORA. IT WAS FASCINATING TO HERE ABOUT THE FOOTBALL STADIUM IN MIDDLESBORO. MY GRADUATING CLASS JUST HELD THEIR FORTIETH REUNION TWO WEEKS AGO. I DID NOT GET TO GO BECAUSE OF ILLNESS IN MY FAMILY. I LIVE IN BROOKSVILE, FL. MY DAD USE TO DRIVE CAB AND A LAUNDRY TRUCK FOR HARVEY WHEN HE WAS IN THOSE TWO BUSINESSES
THEY ALL CALLED HIM "BUSTER" OR "FATS" CAMPBELL. I CAN'T REMEMBER WHICH ONE NOW, BUT HE HAD A MOTEL IN CORBIN KY. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO HENRY CARL OR SARAH MINTERS PARENTS ARE. WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE AT CUMBERLAND COLLEGE IN WILLIAMSBURG,KY, WE HAD TO DO A FAMILY TREE FOR SOCIOLOGY. WHEN I TALKED TO THE OLDER GENERATION ABOUT THE YEARY SIDE I DISCOVERED THAT WHEN THEY CAME OVER HERE FROM ENGLAND, THEY CHANGED THE SPELLING OF THEIR NAME SLIGHTLY. I HAD IT TRACED BACK TO OUR ENGLISH ANCESTORS. BUT NEEDLESS TO SAY IN THIRTYNINE YEARS AND ALL THE MOVING AROUND I HAVE NO HOPES OF EVER FINDING IT AGAIN. WOULD SURE APPRECIATE HEARING FROM YOU ON ANYTHING YOU KNOW. THANKS.
