[DJY:
The identity of John and Margaret is uncertain - it would
seem possible that he is the son of John & Elizabeth Cosby
Yancey and grandson of Archelaus Yancey Sr.

The Archelaus of Fayette Co., KY would be the son of Archelaus & Mary Yancey of Louisa Co., VA. This is one of
the few documents that shows that Archelaus Yancey Jr was
married to a woman named Mary (same as his mother).
