Hello, I don't know about William Yancey. The reason i'm responding is because I found out that my father's dad's last name was Yancey. The name my dad took was Eppard. He doesn't have much longer to live but he finally told my brother and I that his father was not an Eppard but a man with the last name Yancey. Since that is a unique last name, I thought to start here. He was born in the state of Kentucky but conception is unknown. His mother was named Shirley Hicks and used to go by the last name Zimmerman. My father's name is Rick and first used the last name Partin and then Eppard. I know this is a long shot but since Yancey is a unique name, hopefully all Yancey's are connected in one way or another. It would be nice to know my dad's father's side of the family. You can email me at email@example.com
. Any information would be useful. As I looked up, Yancey is a unique name. . Thank you.
