Sometime in the early 1800's Joseph Yadon moved his family to Grainger County, Tennessee. They settled on a farm near Acuff. Joseph and Mary (Pennybaker) spent the rest of their lives on the 'Old Yadon Farm.' Both are buried in the Yadon Cemetery, located on this farm, six miles northeast of Maynardville, Tennessee.
After 56 years of marriage, Mary died on September 8, 1838 (age 74) and Joseph on September 1, 1843 (age 86). The marker on Joseph's grave was placed by the Daughters of the American Revolution. There is a fieldstone beside Joseph's marker that is thought to be the headstone for Mary.
