    Gender Male 

    • BIOGRAPHY by Albert Cadwallader Worrell: Caleb Yarnall apparently was a farmer in Edgmont Twp., Chester Co., PA all of his life. He did own some land in Middletown, which he left to his son John, but the home farm was in Edgmont. He served in some capacity in the Revolutionary War and is listed in the DAR Patriots Index.

      Caleb Yarnall's will was signed on October 17, 1799 and probated on November 25, 1800. He left his son Owen 22 acres of land in Edgmont and 50 pounds. Daughters Agnes and Phebe were each left 100 pounds and son Caleb was to receive 200 pounds, "when he shall arrive to the age of twenty one years." Son John was given the residue of Caleb's estate, including lands in Edgmont and Middletown. But John was required to pay the money to his brothers and sisters, to pay his mother 100 pounds in cash, provide her with specified foodstuffs, fuel, priviledges of use of certain rooms and the garden, and finally to pay his mother 12 pounds yearly during her widowhood. Since Phebe never remarried and died at the age of ninety-eight only one year before her son did, John inherited a lifetime responsibility along with his land.

      Caleb Yarnall and Phebe Minshall Yarnall were buried in the Middletown Friends Burial Ground.
