Obituary of Berra Yarboro (sic) York ~ 1972
Contributed by Carroll Pearsall
I got this obit for another reason, but am sending for the site.
Some info out there on the net is in error.
Her brother Joseph B. Yarborough died in the service of his country during
WW2. I came across the misinformation while searching for the brother who
died in WW2.
Apparently the father James Joseph Yarbrough was married twice.
The records indicate variant spellings.
Mrs. York's death certificate shows her parents as James Frank York and
Margaret Casteen. That is also in error.
I am still searching for the WW2 Yarboro.
