STEPHEN YANCEY
================
IDENTITY: SON OF ARCHELAUS YANCEY OF LOUISA CO., VA
COUNTY: LOUISA STATE: VIRGINIA
COURT RECORDS RECORDED: 1793
====================================================================

STEPHEN YANCEY

>From the "Virginia Gazette 4 Dec 1784"
"Yesterday was executed, at the gallows near this city, pursuant to his
sentence passed the last session of the General Court, Stephen Yancey,
from Louisa County for the murder of his brother"

Information concerning the circumstances of the murder can be found at:
http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Acres/7647/murder.htm

DJY: Stephen Yancey left no will. What follows is information
abstracted from court records in reference to the settlement of his
estate.

The probate records give very little textual information that would
document the members of Stephen Yanceys family and his relatives - what
follows are names that are mentioned in the estate settlement - very
little information is recorded with the name on the original records - a
very brief name and description and a monetary amount. The monetary
amounts have here been excluded.
The dates associated with these entries span from 1785 through 1793.
These entries, however, do not seem to have been recorded in court
records until 1793.

Names mentioned in the estate settlement follow: (info in brackets has
been added for informational purposes and is not in the original record)
