I don't think there is hard evidence that Andrew H. Youree was the son of Joseph. Their is some circumstantial evidence but all the documents that would show even a strong link are either missing or the documents don't mention Andrew. Joseph Youree, of course, died intestate and the final settlement of his estate isn't to be found. Unfortunately I live nearly 3000 miles from Rutherford County, Tennessee where those records are - and so my search of the documents has been limited to microfilmed indexes and the gracious help of current court house employees. If I could go to the court house I might be lucky and find that final settlement tucked away someplace where it's not been found.
If you have found evidence to the contrary, I would love to see it!
I would also like to see something that would show what the 'H' stands for as Andrew's middle name. If it were for Hart, that would be one more bit if circumstantial evidence to help build a stronger case. But I've never seen a thing.
As a matter of fact, I've never found evidence of where Andrew H. Youree and his second wife, Elizabeth ( -- ) (James) Youree died. They were enumerated in the 1870 census for Jackson County, Missouri and the 1877 plat map for the County shows "A. Youree Est" for the section that he owned - implying that he had died. Unfortunately, Jackson County, Missouri court records are impossible to search from afar. But I've found no evidence of a will, an estate settlement nor of a cemetery record.
