My dad and Dorothy communicated about genealogy since the 1970s... He passed the genealogy bug along to me and Dorothy became my mentor and sounding board authority. We had fun. We never, for certain, found our common ancestor ... our known ancestors lived next door to each other and descendants match 66/67 YDNA genetic markers... We believe Jacob YB c1715-c1791 of Chatham CO, NC or Derrick YB (Anglicized "Theodrick") who owned land next door to a Jacob we will one day be able to confirm as the father of James YB c1740-1792 and Thomas c1745-1822.. Thanks Dorothy and God Bless

Ed & Family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm not great with words, but Jeff was my best friend ever, and ever time I would come visit Springfield he would take me to see Dorothy, and we'd all just spend time drinking coffee and shooting the shit. I have nothing but fond memories of your family.

Although we never had the chance to meet, we forged a friendship that resulted in wonderful phone calls, numerous emails, and a few letters over the years. She was the 'go-to' expert on Youngblood genealogy. Having grown up very near where she was born gave us much to talk about. We had laughs over a tee-shirt that I sent her bringing back many memories of "The Road to Ruin" for her. I know she was my cousin but we never figured out exactly how. I will miss you, lovely cousin.

My most heartfelt condolences to Dorothy's family. We exchanged many emails and had many phone conversations about the Youngblood family and DNA. I even got to meet her in person last summer! May she finally be a peace and free from that illness that inflicted her the last year of so of her life. She will be greatly missed.
