The Yowell family of Welsh descent, to thebest of my knowledge came to Washington, Kentucky in the 1700's by covered wagon from Culpepper, Virginia, along with the Coppedges. Humphrey Yowell married Helen Coppedge in Kentucky and moved to Crawford, Missouri, USA, later known as Phelps, Missouri, USA, about 1825. Humphrey's father was James Yowell. Helen's parents were William Coppedge and Pol Abell. Humphrey and Helen homesteaded a large tract of land along the Little Piney River. They had one son , Easton Ship (1821-1859), while still in Kentucky. After moving to Missouri, USA, Easton was a merchant on the Little Piney with his wife Nancy J. (Bradford) Yowell. Humphrey and Helen had several children after moving to Missouri, USA. They were William Coppedge (1828-1873) married Elizabeth Webber; Lindsey Long I (July 30, 1830 - Jan. 29, 1876) married Sarah Ann Wilson; James A. (1833-1864) married Harriet Parker; Henson (abt. 1838); Spencer P. (abt. 1841); Amanda married John B. Ansley; and three unnamed girls. * (One of the three unnamed girls was Lucinda born May 9, 1821/1822 in KY and died 11-16-1905 at age 84 years, 6 months and 7 days, she is buried in the Newburg Cemetery. She married Jacob Hoss. - per Barbara Pugh and Carrie Edgar) (The reason the girls were mentioned as unnamed is because Humphrey was found on an early Census (bef. 1850) and his children were listed as boys or girls with no names. When Humphrey is found in the 1850 Census these three girls are already married - per Barbara Pugh) The railbed, later knownas the Frisco-Burlington-Northern Railroad, was used heavily by the Civil War soldiers. It was known then as the Springfield-Rolla road. This road ran through the Humphrey and James A. Yowell farms that were located between Rolla and Newburg. Lindsey Lo married Sarah Ann (Wilson) Yowell (Nov. 5, 1834 - Oct. 11, 1923) who was the sister of notorious bushwacker, Bill Wilson, of whom much is written and documented in the National Archives, Washington, D.C. After the death of Lindsey Long I, Sarah Ann married David H. Inyard, inAugust 1879. Sixty acres of the old Yowell farm is now in the ownership of the great-great grandson of Humphrey Yowell, Leonard Lee Yowell of Wilmington, Delaware and his mother Edna and step-father Jess Crabtr St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The old Yowell Cemetery is still there with the tombstones of Easton S. and William C Yowell in good condition. Also a footstone witht the initials of L. L. Y. Humphrey may be buried her also. The old house burned many years ago but there is an old log house still standing. The grounds and log house are being renovated at this time by the family. The farm was owned, at one time, by Phil and Presh McKinnion, who
