This information comes from Ruth Onsby who posted a reply to me on Thomas Yerby.
Everett Yerby was the father of Hogan Yerby, an early settler in Fayette County, Alabama. Everett was born in Lancaster County, Virginia 12/13/1762, died 5/1823, buried Bethel Cemetery, Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Married Sarah McMillian, born 12/15/1766, died about the same time as Everett and buried at Bethel. It is not known when he left Virginia, but the state and federal census records of 1790 listed him in Mecklinburg County, North Carolina with three males under sixteen and two females. The tax list of 1806 also listed his name. He probably left this area sometime after 1806 and may have lived in Lancaster County, South Carolina. The next record of Everett and Sarah was when they arrived in Tuscaloosa, Alabama about 1816 and were charter members of Bethel Baptist Church, established 1818, where he was a deacon. Bethel Presbyterian now stands on this site. There is a very old cemetery located in the back of the church. Ten children were born to Everett and Sarah. Mary Louisa 1791/1823, married Absalm Deason; Elizabeth 1793/??, John 1796/1873 married Sarah Baines, Amon 1789/1861 married Rachel Dodson; James; Frances; William; Nancy, Sarah, and Hogan.
Although there are some who say there is not enough proof prior to Everett, records of Mrs. B.A, Sullivan and others differ. Submitted by: Michael Yerby and Written by: Fletcher R.
