I entered a profile for Thomas Griggs Yarborough, but now I think his parents and spouse are wrong. I need help finding the correct information and sources.
WikiTree profile: Thomas Yarbrough

I'm a bit hesitant giving this information as it more a breadcrumb to a possible source however just for collaboration sake to help conversation to a source I found a Ancestry tree that had this information as parents however there was no sources attached

  • John Yarborough


  • Abagail Harrington Whitehead


  • Spouse 15 Jun 1756 • Goochland, Goochland, Virginia, United States

    Mary Spurlock


If Indeed this is the same couple and I hope I not conflating someone it shows a child

However if you judge by the given fathers date of birth he would have been very elderly by the time his son was born

Yes, I found that, too. It is so different than the profile on Wikitree that I don't know where to start.
