Comments:
My mother was the 10th child of Romanus J. Yoder. Also seeking info on great-grandmother Susanna Miller (DBH4944), and great-grandmother Barbara J. Yoder (DBH4933).
One conflicting bit of information I noted.... this site lists my grandmother, Emma Elvissie Kramer, as DBH4945. But other published information traces her ancestry back to John Hochstetler, brother to Barbara Hochstetler who married to Christian Stutzman:
Emma Kramer, daughter of: Daniel J. Kramer, son of: Johann J. Kramer of Germany, and Barbara Schwartzentruber, daughter of: Daniel Schwartzentruber, and Barbara Hochstetler, daughter of: Barbara Schrock, and Henry Hochstetler, son of: Catherine Hertzler, and John Hochstetler, brother to Barbara (Hochstetler) Stutzman, and son of Jacob Hochstetler.
And if that's not confusing, I don't know what is. :-)
This site has been very helpful. Until we found it, we really didn't have any information on my grandfather's side of the family, just grandmother's. Thanks for all the hard work you put in!

Thank you for providing such a well-done, informative web page! I have looked for a long time for the trail of my g-g-grandfather, Jacob YEIDER, b. 8/23/1830 in PA. Finally, in information here, I have found his parents, John and Martha YEIDER, in the 1850 census for Lancaster Co PA, Conestoge Twp. If you have any further info on this family, I would appreciate knowing about it. Marilyn

MRS. ABRAHAM YODER OF COOPERSBURG, MILFORD TOWNSHIP, BUCKS COUNTY, PA. Looking for the connection with Mrs. Abraham Yoder (her first name is unknown) and Jesse Bright. An obituary for Jesse Bright( dob 12/20/1850 and dod 1/9/1883) states he was the nephew of Mrs. Abraham Yoder. Jesse Bright was the son of Jacob Bright and Nancy Bechtel. Jesse and his brother David (my great grandfather) were orphaned in approximately 1852 and were raised by relatives in Milford Township area. Any leads would be appreciated, please contact me directly.
Thank you, Charlene Bright Veatch Florida

Very impressive website. I am looking for information on a publication that traces the Yoder ancestors of Holmes County Ohio. I have heard that in recent years there has been a publication referred to as the Miller (Barbara??) decendants which includes Yoders in Holmes County.
I no longer live in Holmes County, but a note from a friend in State College, PA indicated there exists a Miller decendants publication. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks for posting your info! J&P could be Joseph Yoder and Polly Robinson. They were married in Summit Co, but were in Illinois as of the 1850 census. They would match to the initials for Hannah's parents, and their Sarah matches the age of the one in the 1860 census, but this would mean they returned to Oh from Illinois. If it's them, I'd assume they died and orphanes Sarah.
Any more clues?

I was led here by a search of Steffisburg. My GERBER ancestors, from Schwarzwnegg/Rothenbach im Emmenthal, were many of them married in Steffisburg. About 10 yrs ago, I rode the SBB down to Thun from Bern, walked up through Steffisburg, & out to the farm where my GGFather lived before emigrating - "Nachstenacher." Delbert Graff helped me find it. And naturally, being from Wayne Co., OH, I know the name "Yoder."
