NOTE: posted in the Yabrough Family GenForum at

David, I'm descended from Swanson Jr.'s brother Joseph Randolph Yarbrough. I don't believe Swanson and Mary divorced; she was apparently widowed when Swanson Jr. died (as a result of a fall from a horse according to Joseph Randolph's children).My parents copied the following (and made the accompanying notes) sometime in the 70's while researching in Austin, TX:
A claim for services in the army in 1836. Sealed 8 Jan. 1851; approved 8 Mar. 1852. SWANSON YARBROUGH #1137 dated Jan. A. D. 1851 for $24.00; signed over to CHARLES J. GRAINGER 4 Mar. 1852 by MARY YARBROUGH widow and heir of SWANSON YARBROUGH deceased. There were no other heirs of Swanson Yarbrough. In the margin of this note I have Harris County. This could actually be Harris County, or it could even be that someone read "Houston" and assumed that it meant Houston, Harris Co. instead of Houston Co. There was a file card that says "see BAXTER, MONTGOMERY."
