The Yeldell Family (Through My Eyes)

Jill Scott – Family Reunion

I am a single mother of four beautiful children. They are my inspiration for this blog and everything that I have done.  Because of them I am fighting what feels like a losing battle drawing my family closer together.  We are a large family and must get to know each other.  I have vowed to continue learning more about our past so the future will know who they are and where they come from.

Peace & Blessings

My mother is a Yeldell in Edgefield, SC. Her paternal lineage is of George and Annie Yeldell from Edgefield. This past week my family had a Yeldell Family meeting and your articles in the Edgefield Advertiser came up. They are interested in speaking with you, if you would like the same.

Hi Stephanie I sent you an email with my cell phone number please tell your family I look forward to hearing from them.

Stephanie please have your mom call me. I to change phones several times so her number was lost. I have received the invite and have called the number with no answer there are several questions that I have. I hope to hear from her soon if you need my number again please send me an email and I will give it to you.

My name is Elizabeth Yeldell. I have always been interested in learning more about the Yeldell name and its heritage. I enjoyed reading your site, you have worked hard for your information. Do you have any idea where the name Yeldell originates or its ethnicity? I am asked at least once a week where the name comes from because it is so unusual.

Keep up the hard work!

Elizabeth I have been just recently asked that same question and I am going to look into it. I would love to talk more with you to find out more about your family to help me see where we are connected. feel free to email me at Can’t wait to hear from you.

Your website is beautiful. I am my family’s historian. Your site has given me some excellent ideas for a site of our own. We are also long time DC natives, but we are from Virginia. I am related to the Yeldells by marriage. My great aunt, Evangeline Greene, was married to David Lee Yeldell. Your Uncle David was a wonderful man and I loved him dearly. My step-father, James Thomas Jr., was married to Diane Patsy Yeldell. There is a picture of my step-brother, James “Moby” Thomas, on your site. Congratulations on your research success thus far and continue to enjoy the journey.

Thank you so much Cynthia I would love to just compare notes.
