In Reply to: Mary Polly Yeast 1833-1914 Mercer Co. Ky by Donald Hauser of 38

If your Mary Polly Yeast is the daughter of Jacob Yeast, Jr., then she is the sister to my ancestor Catherine Yeast. Catherine married Phillip Sallee in Mercer Co, Ky.
I have to find my notes on this family.

I know that Phillip & Catherine were on Mercer Co 1850 census, 1860 in Muhlenburg Co, Ky & by 1880 were in LaRue Co, Ky. They probably moved wherever they could get work.

I seem to remember one of Phillip's daughters married a Devine in Washington Co, Ky. Will have to check on that.
Another son was killed around 1900 in a sawmill accident in Muhlenburg Co.
This group of folks were living mostly near the Mercer/Washington Co, Ky dividing line.
