A History of Louisa County, Virginia - By Malcolm Harris -
The Yanceys were living in Louisa about 1742. The records show that Robert Yancey was dead and his widow Temperance Yancey alive in 1746.
Charles Yancey lived at Yanceyville. He and his sons organized Robert Yancey & Company, successful merchants, millers and distillers at Yanceyville about 1800. David Yancey was a lawyer, and, from his will probably died at Kingston [Jamaica]. Neither he nor Robert was married [before passing away young]. Their property went to their sister's heirs, the Crawfords and Kimbroughs
