There are two basic Yeatman lines in the U.S.. One comes out of the Va./Md. area and has either a William or Erasmus Yeatman as ancestor in the 1650's, and the other comes out of South Carolina, a later immigrant from England. John Yeatman is, I believe the furthest back anyone has documented a line, though, and that's ca. 1690. I am descended from the Va. Yeatmans, by way of Pa./Ky./TN. and now a reverse migration from TN. to Md.. My great-grandfather was Henry Clay Yeatman, 183-1910. Great-great grandfather Thomas Yeatman, 1787-1833 (buried around Louisville but lived in Nashville). John Yeatman of Westmoreland Co., Va. , was my great-great-great grandfather and is buried around Frankfort, Ky.. There is a branch of the Yeatmans in the Indiana/Ohio area that are desendants of John Yeatman's brother, Griffin, who was a teamster under "Mad Anthony" Wayne in the Fallen Timbers campaign, and later ran a tavern around Cincinatti, Oh. Yeatman's Landing, on the riverfront there, is named for him.
