         JOHN YARBROUGH, son of Groves Yarbrough and Martha Langston, was one of 17 children born and reared in Franklin Co., Georgia.   While  a  young man, he and another brother  went  to  Rome, Floyd Co., Georgia to stay with their older brother, Nathan,  who was quite an important man in the community.  He was responsible for having the town of Rome incorporated and was its first Mayor, and  3rd  postmaster.   (** See below.)  He was  elected  to  the legislature  from Floyd Co., in 1845 and held various offices  of that county, including sheriff and Justice of the Inferior Court.  This latter office gave him the title of Judge Nathan  Yarbrough.  When  he moved to Texas at the age of 60, he was made  Postmaster in Comanche.  This position he held until his death in 1899.

           JOHN  met and married MILDRED ELIZABETH HARGROVE in Rome,  Georgia.  He  purchased 2 town lots and a farm of 320 acres about  2  miles south of the city lots, in the 1840's.  In 1848, he sold the lots to  Nathan Yarbrough, for $150.00, and in 1850, the farm  to  Eli Denson for $625.00.  After this time, the name of JOHN  YARBROUGH disappears from public records in Floyd Co., Georgia, except  for the census of that year.

         In  1870  we  find JOHN in Hays  County,  Texas,  with  more children  and  a  different wife.  It is said that  he  lived  in Nacogdoches.   On  trips to San Antonio, he  sometimes  took  his daughter,  Elizabeth  (Mollie).  He would always  buy  her  peach cider.

         JOHN's  second marriage was to a young school teacher  named Mary Trammel Maddox.    Of their children, Charles probably died young, for  his name does not appear on more than one census record.

         JOHN  was  quite well off and had several slaves,  but  lost everything  when he sold his farm and all he had for  confederate money.     Mollie,  his  daughter by his first marriage, told  how  her stepmother would have 4 negro women bring her hot water every day for  her bath.  One day, Mollie caught the negro  women  stealing syrup  from  the big syrup barrel, obviously something  they  had been  doing regularly.  They threatened Mollie with a beating  if she  told on them.  She was so frightened, she never said a  word about it to anyone.

     (** According to "A History of Rome and Floyd County" p. 297 Nathan Yarbrough was Rome's 3rd Mayor 1852-3.  Perhaps he was the first Postmaster.  The 1880 Comanche County, Texas, Census  shows Nathan as Postmaster there. --Per Dianne Blankenstein.)
