Advise on adding 2 sources where there were none Yarbrough-367

+1 vote

This profile is for Richard Yarbrough .   Not sure why an Elizabeth Bivens is also coming up ?  How do we solve that ? 

I am pre-1700 certified, but running these 2 sources by you all .  "Should" be good one is a land deed and the other a court record.  The dates make it impossible for the records to be his fathers.  

1. Sons of Richard 1702- ."An old vestry book of Blandford Church tells us that William was the church sexton, and the book contains numerous references to payments in tobacco for William's services. Richard’s son Richard moved to nearby New Kent County, and we are very fortunate to find several references to him there. In the following accounts of Richard in New Kent County, note how the clerks spelled Yarbrough. “Att a Generall Assembly begun att James Citty the 16 day of Aprill in the yeare of our Lord 1684. These following orders of publique charge and levy were made...New Kent Richard Yarburg for his service severall tymes in discovering the Senerca Indians and other public service...333 p. tobacco.” “1685...The report has come from ye Commottee of Claims, relating to ye New York and Albany charge is by ye house allowed of and Auditor Bacon is desired to pay...To Richard Yarborough interpreter for his voyage and services.” “Att a Grande Assembly begunn att Greene Springs the 20 day of February 1676 these following orders of Publique Charge were made and Richard Yarbey 6,000 p. tobacco.” “An act for the safeguarde and defence of the country against the Indians...and forty-one men out of the lower parts of New Kent County to be garrisoned at one fortt or place of defence between Yarburye’s house and Chickahomony Indian Towne on Mattapony River.” Possibly one or more of the above accounts concern the immigrant Richard, however must concern his son as in the Virginia Historical Magazine concerning the court trial of Captain Jacob Lumpkin in New Kent County.- New Kent - At a Court held Septem’ 29th, 1690, At Mr. Tunstall’s Gents - Coll. John West, Capt. Roger Malory, Mr. Thom. ffoster, Capt. Jos. ffoster, Mr. Robert Bird, Capt. John Lane, Mr. Jos. Story - Justices.

I think you are confusing Yarbrough-367 (Elizabeth) with Yarborough-367, Richard.

Thank you Kathie!
Elizabeth Yarbrough Bivens is Yarbrough-367,

Richard Yar BOR ough  is  Yarborough-367.  Two different people, two different spellings.  Richard Yarbrough, Yarbrough-49 is the father of Richard Yarborough, Yarborough-367.  Spelling seems to be uncertain, or changed between generations.
Oh ok I see I edited the right guy then !  Whew.  I just left out the extra " r" in his spelling in the right location, fixed now. Thank you !
I have also moved the generic * put in by the profile creator or another user,  from the Source listing up into the bio as see notes. As that is not  a valid source.
