George and Lucretia lived in a log cabin located in Graves C o., Ky.,
where Yarbrough Cemetery is today. Some call it the Yarbrough-Sims
Cemetery. The story has been told that when George Yarbrough and his
son,G eorge R. Yarbrough, died, they were buried in the family garden,
that is when Yarbrough Cemetery was started. Robert Louis Sims told,
that his grandmothe r, Virginia Belinda Yarbrough, told him, that George
and George R. Yarbroughb oth died of that "bad disease". We haven't
figured out just what that disease was.
