He died from old age and is buried between Aubrey and Pilot Point In
Belew Cemetery. This family traveled from south Carolina to Mississippi to Tenn to Texas
to Indian Territory in Okla. they had land in Tallahatchie Miss, and
Choctaw Miss. also in Panola county in Tenn. In Texas they went to
Denton, Cooke and Lampassas county in Texas. there is still registered
land in the original land owners such as Pelham, Bryam and Crawford,
John Burden. They all had land together and did dealings together. Some
of the family went to California to work in the Gold rush, some stayed
there and others came back to the Indian Territory in Oklahoma. Most of
them that were in Oklahoma were in Lindsey Oklahoma . They had land on
what was known as the James-Yarbrough hill. The Rush Creek goes through it, you can't get to it by car now, you have to walk to it. It is overgrown into a pasture now. There are
still some Yarbrough's there with markers. There was also federal land
given to Byram Yarbrough in Mississippi by President Polk because of the
Indian heritage. Abby was a Cherokee, that was all there was in the area
where she came from. Byram Franklin YARBROUGH and Calipurina were married on 5 Oct 1855 in Cooke County, Texas.3 They appeared in the census in 1860 in Lampasas, Lampasas County, Texas.

Thought I would share some information about M.M. Ozment (Amanda Edwards_husband) that I found
while reading a book written by A. Morton Smith,_"The First 100 Years in Cooke County". Did you
know that he was sheriff_of Cooke County from 1876 to 1881._This is the paragraph from the book, "
Since the arrival of the_railroad, Woodbine in the East part of the county had been growing. The_first
cotton gin was built by M.M. Ozment, then sheriff of the county,_in 1881; his son-in-law. Nick Stroube,
operated it."__Harold Hutson Children were:
