In his will he uses only the name Nicholas. There is a Nicholas Edmund Yarborough Yarborough-354 who appears to be his father, but the father should just be Edmund, I think. Yarborough-354 and Yarborough-188 are duplicates probably.

Very unusual to have two given name at this time. Does this really represent two people?
