Hi Dorinda. I think I may have corresponded with you in the past. Your name is familiar. Anyway, Burton Yeargan was my great-great grandfather's brother. My great-great Grandfather's name was John Yeargan. I'll attach a copy of the tree I have on them. At one time, I had a letter Burton wrote while he was in the Civil War to a relative. I'll be darned, I can't seem to locate it, though. Maybe it's the same one you have. I have a few census records and miscellaneous stuf on my ancestor John A. Yeargan, if you're interested. See my tree below:

Wiley Burton Yeargan was born in or around Paris, Texas. He and his family moved to Indian Territory, present day Oklahoma, about 1880. It is said that John A. Yeargan, father of Wiley, my have died prior to the move. He could be buried around Paris, Texas. The group, widow Martha, Bill, John Jr., Wiley, Dorcus, and Delila moved in a small wagon, called a hack, pulled by a team of jennies ( small mules). Bill was in charge of the move. Uncle Wallace's mother, my Great Grandmother, Minnie, said the women were very pretty all having large dark eyes and dark hair with clear fair skin. They were forever primping. Uncle Wallace said " guess they were in search of husbands". One of the girls, Delila, married a man named Joe Bellar at Pauls Valley, OK. Old Joe just happened to have a couple of sections of bottom land which the Washita river ran through. There were lots of paper hulled Pecan trees. Joe and Delila had one son, who married a school marme and had two boys. Uncle Wallace, Vern (Auvern), and their parents used to visit them when Uncle Wallace was 12. Uncle Bob (Clifford) and Vern visited them again before they married and stayed with them for quite awhile. The State of Ok made a park out of the Bellars farm.
