I was just reading old posts about different Yazell family members and wanted to reach out to you all.
My maiden name is Stacy Yazell and my father was (or is?)James Wilborn Yazell. I believe he originally came to California from Illinois. From the online search services I've used, I know he possibly lives in Palmetto FL now.
I haven't seen him since I was about 3 years old. He went to prison for a long time but I do know that he is out now. He contacted my grandparents looking for me when he was released from prison but they wouldn't give him any info.
Anyway, I'm a grown woman now and he's an old man. I feel it's worth meeting him now. If anyone has information about him that they can share, please do.
