The “H.” Youngblood in the Rutherfordton jail (page 775) isn’t the same one as Harvey in Flint Hill (p. 578), but he may be a younger brother. I believe “H” is Hiram, who enlisted (or was conscripted) from Rutherford Co. into the 58th NC Regiment in 1863 and was among the Confederate soldiers executed at Dalton, GA in 1864. He is depicted as a brother of Joseph Youngblood by Terrell Garren in his book, “The Secret of Wars”, but Terrell said he thought Hiram was actually Joseph’s cousin. Joseph was in the 60th NC, some of whom were also executed, and was a son of Rueben Youngblood of Buncombe/Henderson Cos. If this is all so, and Harvey and Hiram are sons of Mary, as it appears, then your Mary must have been married to a Youngblood from my branch. (DNA has confirmed Reuben to be closely related to Jeremiah.)
I also believe Mary is the “Polly” Youngblood named in the will of William Crain, who died in Rutherford Co. in 1837.
We just need more pieces to the puzzle!
