Bio and Links
Bio Photo Specializing in the family of 1717 Germanna Colonist Nicholas Yager (b. 1678 in Germany) over a 20-year-period, I have been blessed with the input of countless kind Yeager relatives from all over the country, such as the late Carroll Yeager Thomas and Jane Warren Waller. With their help my first private publication in 1994 was about my ggf: "The Family of Daniel Wayne Yeager, 1835-1910." In 2002 my work on identifying John Yager and his wife Ann Render, Daniel's grandparents, was published in John Blankenbaker's respected journal "Beyond Germanna." The following year I was asked to make a presentation on "Yagers Named John" at the Germanna Memorial Foundation annual reunion. In 2004 after more extensive research in Virginia courthouses, libraries and most especially the amazing Library of Virginia, I presented the book "Following John: Documenting the Identity and Path of John Yager, born 25 Nov 1750, in Culpeper County, Virginia." In 2010, I assisted Cathi Clore Frost in her research for Germanna Record #19: "The Yager Family, the First Five Generations," and wrote the Introduction for that extremely informative tome! (Thanks to Cathi and the Foundation!) In 2011-2012 the Germanna Research Group in its online "Journal" presented a 2-part article entitled "Follow the Money, Honey," at To find this, click on the November 2011 and April 2012 issues. (Thanks to Virginia Rhodes Nuta, Suzanne Matson, and Michael Oddenino, esp. to Ginnie who made me do it.) Over the years I have also been list administrator for the Rootsweb mailing list YEAGER-SOUTH-US. My most recent project is adding the photos and information researched by Claudia Yeager Cowley on Texas Yeagers to

Most especially, thanks to C.Y. Thomas (who made me follow John) and always signed off,

"Best regards,"

Lewis Yager
Thank you so much for all of the info you posted on Lewis Yager. You have helped me prove my lineage to the Revolution and now I'll be able to join the Daughters of the American Revolution! Thank you for taking the time to post so much of our ancestral info!

Take care,
Kendra Bradford

Hi Elizabeth,
Been having a lot of health issues along with my eyesight problems, so I have not gotten anything completed on the community.

Dear Mrs. Johnson,

Can you please contact me at re your GG Grandfather Samuel Yates. I am researching the Polk family and would like to discuss his wife Rebecca with you.

Thank you for your consideration.

Louise Perkins
These middle names used as names on "rocks" are my bane.

Deleted Louise so Annie Louise now rules the kingdom of Perkins.

I didn't even "check the dates." I don't do that. As long as ancestors are documented.

Keep up the good work.

Rev. Yeager
I just saw the photos and bio that you did for Rev. Yeager and it was really good! I had contact with you and transferred this memorial to you and I was really happy to see the photos and information. Would you happen to know the years that he was at Coalville by any chance?

I have been working with the Ocean Springs historian about writing the Woolmarket Community History and would like to include your bio and photos if that would be possible?

Thanks for doing this memorial justice.
