This page contains information about the lineage of Jesse Lee Yancy, Jr. who married Barbara Frances Young.




Yancy or Yancey?

Jesse Yancy, Sr. spelled his surname "Yancy" as do many others related to him. However, the original spelling was apparently "Yancey". Click here to see maps showing the distribution of the Yancy and Yancey surnames in 1880.

Most of the Yancy/Yancey genealogical information on this page was found on the RootsWeb site here or was collected by Jesse Lee Yancy III from other members of the Yancy/Yancey, Cooper, and Onsby families.

These data consist of family groups (husband, mother, children, husband's parents, mother's parents) with dates and locations of births, deaths, and marriages (where known.) I've also included any notes or additional information that was available about each group. Veterans or soldiers (where known) are indicated by appropriate flags.

The following listing of names is a linked index to entries in the family groups. If you click on a name in the list, you will be shown the family group that includes that name. If more than one family group includes that name, you will be shown the group where the name is listed as either husband, wife, father, or mother. The family groups themselves are in roughly generational order with the younger generations being listed first. Click on the index card icon in the family groups to return to the main index.
