The Board of Commissioners voted unanimously April 12 to rename Lambert Road near Sardis to Yank Elliott Road.
Commissioner Tommy Nix asked the panel to consider the request made by several residents. There are no residents living on the road, but many of the property owners are descendants of the late Charlie Burrs “Yank” Elliott.
Elliott was born January 1, 1890 and died January 7, 1981. He is buried in Sardis. His wife, Bronnie Elliott died at the age of 80.
