Looking for a relative of Lieut. George Hampton Yarborough Jr. He was born in Person County, NC 1895, moved to Mullins SC in 1896 attended the Citadel, entered WWI, fought in France where he distinguished himself. He earned the Distinguish Service Cross and the Navy Cross and the Navy named a ship in his honor. He is credited to Person County, NC (Roxboro). At this time there is no memorial to recognize him. I am seeking family members that will assist in requesting some permanent recognition for this hero that gave his life for his fellow men.

His surname is spelled several ways, some in the same family.
