|Nancy Yankie Sidarous||MICHAEL YANKEY MEMORIAL|
Dear Anonymous - I'm a Yankey/Yankie descendant and wondering if you are as well? The Michael Yankey you have in your memorial is not the one who married Magdaline Hottinger. That Michael and Magdaline are grandparents of mine and they were married in 1793 in Rockingham County, VA which was before your Michael was born. I descend directly from them. Your Michael must have had a different
wife as mine only had this one marriage, and he died and is buried in the vicinity where he lived all his life in Rockingham and Pendleton Counties. I've visited the graves of Michael and Magdaline, and know their family history from birth to how and where they died.
I thought you would want to know so that you can dig further in your research; I'm sure you would like to have correct information on your memorial. I'll be glad to answer questions about the Yankeys/Yankies if you are part of our family.
All the best to you,
