Subject: [YODER] Martin Yoter (OH1125) Located?

In YNL 32 we featured the discoveries about Martin
Yoder (Yoter) (OH112).At that point we were not able
to report on the disposition of his son Martin
(OH1125) b. circa 1790. Thanks to Leslie McCrary, a
researcher with the Missouri Genweb Project, we were
able to follow-up on a lead from New Madrid County,
Mo. The age seems right, the unique last name
spelling ("Yoter") seems right, and for a family that
moved to western Pa, right near the headwaters of
the Ohio river, a emigration patern down to a
Mississippi river town seems right as well.
----------------------------------------------------
Chris--

There were only three townships in New Madrid Co. in 1830...
Martin Yoter lived in New Madrid Township which included
the town of New Madrid:

Yoter, Martin
1 male under 5 years 1 female under 5 years
1 male 30-40 years 1 female 20-30 years

This makes him the right age to be the son of your Martin
Yoter of PA.

I also checked the 1840 thru 1860 census records...no
Yoder/Yoter. I checked the marriage records I have and
the cemetery records. I also checked Goodspeed's "History
of Southeast Missouri." No mention of a Yoder/Yoter.
The 1830 census is the only place I found mention of this
surname.

Leslie
___________________________________________________________

This data seems to support some other information we've
had for some time from 1850 Texas that shows a:

D.B. Yoter age 22 born Missouri in Kauffman County, Tx.
---------------------------------------------------------

If any of you have access to research materials from either
of these areas I'd been very grateful for any further
clues on this line.

We'll document these new findings in the April YNL.

Good Point...It's been about a couple years since we last did a

Hi Cousin Grace,
John YODER's daughter Magdelena married Abraham GERBER in 1792 and they lived in Somerset Co.,
PA. Abraham moved his family to Walnut Creek, Holmes Co., OH and then my branch of the family
moved a short distance to Tuscarawas Co., OH. My database contains almost everyone that has ever
married a descendant of Johannes GERBER d 1777 Cumru Twp., Berks Co., PA, and their ancestors.
With respect to your line I have two Jonathan KINGs. Two questions. Was your Jonathan the son of
Christian KING and Elizabeth DETWEILER? Secondly, did your Jonathan marry Mary GERBER b abt
1853? I do have Samuel KOENIG b 1724 M Anna YODER b abt 1728, but I don't have much
information on their children. Third question: are these your ancestors and do you have information on
their family group? Final question: who were Jonathan's parents?
When I get this finished, I'm going to put up a web site that will contain a searchable database of our
ancestors.

Thanks,
Doug Garber

Hi-
I am replying to the roll call, on the Conrad line. I believe it is Conrad
232. My great-grandfather was James Marion Yoder, born in 1859 , my
Grandfather was James C Yoder, born in Fargo ND in 1895, my father is Donald
A. Yoder, born in Fargo, ND in 1933 and me Patricia Cheney, born in Fargo, ND
in 1954.
There are questions we are trying to resolve, as to who is actually James M.
Yoder's father--the lineage says Francis M, but my father was always told
otherwise. Can anyone out there from Nora Springs or other parts of Iowa
shed some light on this? Many thanks.

Subject: 1900 PA Census of Yoders

Chris,

Yesterday I reviewed the 1900 Pennsylvania Soundex microfilm for the
Yoder etc. surname at the local Family History Center. I wrote down the
data on 26 names that I thought might be related to me. When I came
home I reviewed these against the data on the Yoder Newsletter Web page
on the PA 1900 Census. 25 of the 26 were included on the YNL page. The
only one who wasn't there was my great grandfather, Aaron M. Yoder,
YB1399. Here is the data I found on him and his family:

Yoder, Aaron Vol. 192, ED 953, Sheet 5, Line 39
born July 1837, age 62, born in Pennsylvania
Place of residence:
County: Philadelphia City: Philadelphia (note no township is listed)
Street: 12th House number: 2844

Yoder, Fianna W(ife) born Feb 1839 age 61 born in Pennsylvania
Yoder, C Anna D(aughter) born Jan 1882 age 18 born in Pennsylvania
NOTE: She is YB13997, Anna Catherine Yoder in my records.

I also found the following corrections for my grandfather's family
(YB13994):

Yoder Edwin S. (YB13994) lived in Philadelphia County, Philadelphia
City, no township listed. The YNL has him in Rush Township. Rush was
the name of the street on which he lived. As you may be aware
Philadelphia City and County are now the same thing. I don't know if
there were any townships in Philadelphia County in 1900 but there is
none listed here.

His wife, (Mary Andrews)"Minnie" Yoder was born in January 1869 not June
1869 as listed in the YNL. Also please change her date of birth in the
YB descendants' listing to January 24, 1969. When I gave you her data
originally I was using the month you showed on the Census listing!!
Besides the verification on the Soundex, I remembered that my Dad told
me they always kept their Christmas tree up until his mother's birthday.
(It's amazing what memories come back during the holidays.)

Hope you are having a good Y2K. The weather here has been cold but
clear for the most part. We got some rain, snow and sleet on Sunday and
so there is the beginning of snow on Mt. Lemmon. Maybe they will have
enough to ski this year.

****************************************************************
Descendants of Christian Yotty

(Notes on the "Yotty" name-- The Yotty family was among a group of Mennonites
who settled in Woodford County, Illinois. Family tradition is that the name "Yotty"
was initially something else....Carol believes that "Yordy" is a likely candidate.
There was a Yordy family which also settled in Woodford County about the same
time. The European record of Mennonites assembled by Herman Guth, do not include
any families with the spelling Yotty....And we aren't certain how far back the
Yordy spelling appears either, so we've been watching that one as well to see
in any "Joder" connection may exist.----Chris Yoder, Editor YNL)

The first generation is listed below (see the full file for more).

YTY. CHRISTIAN YOTTY was born Abt. 1809 in Germany, and died Unknown in
Eureka, Illinois. He married CATHERINE STALTER in Germany. She was born
Abt. 1808 in Germany, and died Unknown in Eureka, Illinois.
Christian came to America in the mid 1800s with his wife, Catherine and four
children. Him and his wife were Mennonites in Eureka, IL. Their dates of
death are unknown and are buried next to their son Jacob and his wife Anna
at the Roanoke Mennonite cemetery in Eureka, IL.
Burial: Roanoke Mennonite Cemetery Census: 1850 as "Yeatty"; 1860, Illinois

CAN ANYONE ANSWER LINDA?

From: "Cheal, Linda J.", INTERNET:LINDA.J.CHEAL@saic.com

Chris,

Here is what I know:

Ervin Edward Yoder married Caroline Reed (b. 1/20/1893). Caroline is the
daughter of James E. Reed (1838-1912) and Martha Franks (1874-1965?). My
records show that James & Martha were married in Michigan and that Martha
died in Ypsilanti, MI. I believe that Caroline was born in that state, so
it is possible that Ervin may be from there as well.

Ervin and Caroline had two children: Charles Edward Yoder (b. 12/11/1911)
and Lewis McDeal Yoder (b. 8/16/1913). I do not have any more information
on either of them.

Ervin Edward Yoder died while serving in World War I.

Following Ervin's death, Caroline married Lewis Daniel Kimble and had 6 more
children.

****

If you find anything about these family members, please let me know. If
not, maybe you could send out a general query through your newsletter and
see if anybody recognizes the names.

Thanks! Linda

Kathryn:

I'll be happy to help if I can. but I over 9,000 in my Yetter line so to
speak.

First my line starts in the U. S. with Martin Yetter arriving here in 1763
being born in Germany in 1735.

Let me know where you are at a stand still and I be happy to help all I can.

Also I should point out there are Three Yetter Lines that I am aware of.

1. start here in Pa. with Samuel Yetter.
2. Anther starting out with a Martin Yetter also but they were members of the
Qyaker Menonite etc. faith. and there there is my Martin.

Where are your Yetters from in the U. S.

It is very confusing to say the least and I almost stopped all together a
couple of times when I first started out.

Take care let me hear from you.

If you have any definiding surnames that will help me help you also.

Subject: [YODER] Catherine Carmichael Yetter/Yoder?

Hi List, I trying to verify the maiden name of Andrew Yetter's wife
Catherine. They would have resided in Greene Co Pa in the late 1700s or early
1800s. Someone had emailed me that her name could have been Catherine
Carmichael. The person said that they would email me with the details, but
never did. I wrote a follow up to them but still no reply. My guestion to the
list is, can anyone verify this last name? Somehow it was supposed to tie in

House of Yoder News (Feb 00)

Construction Update

Since the September newsletter, the exterior stonework has been completed and the stone
masons are now finishing the interior stone fireplace and chimney. Installation of the
heating unit for the house, laying the floor on the first floor and placement of windows

and doors will follow when the funds to do so come in. Volunteer workers are always
welcome. If you or someone you know would be willing to donate some labor, please contact
our Volunteer Coordinator, Paul H.Yoder, at 301-895-5411.

A Fund-Raising Update and Plea for Funds!

At the last Executive Committee meeting on January 29, it was noted that an estimated
$70,000 has been raised over the last six years to make the Yoder House a possibility. In
addition, hundreds of hours of volunteer labor have reduced the building costs
significantly. As we move into the final stages of construction, it is estimated that we
will need an additional $25,000 to complete the house. $10,000 is needed immediately to
pay for the large stone walk-in fireplace and chimney. With only $3,000 in the treasury at
present, it is imperative that we raise significant funds in the next month or two. If you
could make a donation at this time, it would be greatly appreciated. We recognize that
many of you have given significant amounts through the years and we are deeply thankful.
Let,s pull together to keep this project moving forward. Use the attached
membership/contribution form to make your timely contribution. Remember that all
contributions to the Yoder House Project are tax-deductible. We need your support now!

Open House Planned for July 13-15

The House of Yoder will be open to the public during the 23rd Annual Summer Festival and
Quilt Show of Grantsville on July 13-15, 2000. Last year we were only open on Saturday,
but due to the strong interest, we plan to be open all three days (Thursday through
Saturday) with plans to serve the popular corn chowder and corn bread on at least Friday
and Saturday. There is also a possibility that a silent auction to raise funds for House
of Yoder will be held in conjunction with the open house.

Yoder European Tour-June 2001

For those who like to plan ahead, a special Yoder European Tour is being sponsored by House
of Yoder for June 2001. The projected date for the 22 day tour of Yoder sites as well as
many other heritage sites is June 5-26, 2001. The dates could vary a day or two in either
direction depending on availability of air flights and hotel reservations. The tour,
sponsored by House of Yoder, is being organized by Covington Meeting Management with Jan
Gleysteen, native of the Netherlands and veteran European tour guide, as tour leader. The
tour can accommodate 30-35 persons on a first-come, first-served basis. The estimated cost
for the tour is $3400 plus (based on double occupancy). A preliminary itinerary includes
stops in the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg, and Belgium.
Switzerland will be the center of Yoder sites on this tour.
If you would like to reserve a place on this tour, please send a deposit (non-refundable)
of $200 per person (payable to "House of Yoder Tour") to: Doris Ours, Rt. 2, Box 106 B,
Keyser, West Virginia 26726. Another $1000 per person is due by November 10, 2000 . The

highly recommended. As the dates, itinerary, and final cost are firmed up, we will inform
you of these developments. In the meantime, reserve your place now for a
once-in-a-lifetime experience on the trail of the Yoder story in Europe during the summer
of 2001. If you have questions as this point, please contact Doris Ours at 304-726-4321 or

4th Annual Meeting-November 13, 1999

33 persons gathered for the fourth annual meeting of the House of Yoder at Penn Alps in
Grantsville, Maryland on Saturday, November 13, 1999. Eight first-time attendees joined
others who have returned year after year for this meeting. Ken Yoder lead an inspiring
tour of the house pointing out numerous items of interest including pole rafters for the
roof, kick rafters, pent roofs, half-timbering, a schuttstein, a replica of the Oley Yoder
Coat of Arms (1376), a huge walk-in fireplace, the Holy Corner, a soul window, smoke house
in the attic, and root cellar in the basement. Harvey Yoder spoke on the topic of the
settlement in Berks County, PA and the movement westward. Olin Yoder presented to House of
Yoder a beautiful painting he had done of the Casselman Bridge which will be auctioned as
part of a fund-raising auction to be held at some point in the future. In the business
meeting Gerald Yoder and Lowell Bender were re-elected to the Executive Committee. A free
will offering which totaled $1643 was collected at the end of the meeting.

Did You Know?

-House of Yoder is built in the style of a house in an area of Germany where Yoders have
lived since 1703.
-The interior floor plan for the Yoder House is patterned after two Yoder houses in Berks
County, Pennsylvania.
-Many of the building materials for House of Yoder have come from barns, houses, and a
church house which was torn down in the Grantsville area. Much of the new lumber used in
the construction has come from trees blown down by the tornado which went through the
Grantsville area in 1998.
-Of the estimated $25,000 needed to complete the house, the breakdown of those costs is as
follows: stone fireplace and chimeny-$10,000; heating unit-$5,000; insulation and
siding-$5,000; and miscellaneous-$5,000. Please help us complete the Yoder House with your
contribution.

RE: Godshalk and Yoder

Hi Don,

I've had several e-mails from you, but for the moment I will reply
only to your last one about looking up Yoder and Godshalk. Note:
Yoder was also spelled Joder. Godshalk was also spelled Godschalk
and there was also Godshall spelling. As it turned out, what I
found was for the spellings you gave.

First, I was unable to find any info in my CDs or books to
determine the specific origin of Melchior Yoder. However, he was
listed in FTM CD#354, "Passenger and Immigration Lists Index
1538-1940", with the following source identified:

Protestants in the American and West Indian Colonies (Pursuant to

Society of London, 1921. 196p. Reprinted by Genealogical Publishing

foreign Protestants, papers that were sent from the Colonies to the

Virginia, Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania. A more complete
record of New York naturalizations can be found in no. 9860, Wolfe,
and for Pennsylvania in no. 6680. UNQUOTE

I also found the Yoder and Godshalk names in FTM CD#209,
"Pennsylvania Wills 1682-1834". I am including here all the items
in which those names appeared with the given names you provided.
In case you don't have it, you will now also have the names of
Anna's siblings and grandfather.

The following items were listed for Montgomery County, PA Wills

Subject: [YODER] NATIONAL YODER REUNION--AUGUST 2000

Y2K IN North Carolina---A National Yoder reunion

(Co-sponsored by the Yoder Newsletter)

A Gathering of the Clan in North CarolinaAugust 11-13, 2000.

The Yoder Family in North Carolina, in conjunction with our 50th
Annual Reunion, will host our second gathering of the entire Yoder
Clan on August 11-13, 2000, in Hickory and Newton, Catawba
County, North Carolina. Similar events occurred in Catawba
County in 1995, and in Reading and Pleasantville, Pennsylvania in
1996. We,re invitin, all y,all Yoders from all lines (although
hopefully, not so warmly this time) to celebrate our wonderful
common heritage.

The Quality Inn (1725 13th Ave. Drive NW (U.S. Hwy. 321 at
Clement Blvd., 2 miles north of I 40), Hickory, NC 28601 (828-431-
2109, fax 828-431-2109), a new hotel featuring both individual
rooms and suites-and free full-buffet breakfast-will serve as our host
accommodation. The cost is $66/night, double occupancy. Call
them to make reservations ASAP-and remember to tell them you,re
comin, down for the YODER REUNION! If you,re a camper, Lake
Hickory Campground is approximately 10 miles from most of the
reunion sites, and is the nearest full-service campground.

The weekend will begin Friday night at the Quality Inn with a get-
acquainted and orientation session featuring YNL editor Chris
Yoder of Battle Creek, Michigan-some fun entertainment, and hors
d,oeuvres. Sometime during the weekend, you,ll actually meet
"Conrad Yoder" and "Heinrich Weidner" themselves!

On Saturday morning beginning at 8:00 a.m., chartered
motorcoaches will transport participants on a guided tour of the
City of Hickory (its first mayor was Marcus Yoder) and Lenoir-
Rhyne College (founded by Dr. Robert Anderson Yoder) where you
will see the Yoder memorial and Virgil Yoder,s wonderful slide
show "The Yoders in Switzerland and America."

We will then proceed through the old "Yodertown" area (including
the homesite and final resting place of North Carolina progenitor
Conrad Yoder); Grace Union Church (founded 1795 by Yoders and
the burial ground of many Yoders, including Conrad,s sons John
and David, and Col. George M. Yoder, Catawba,s 19th century
historian); and Old St. Paul,s Church (founded 1760, first church in
Western N.C.); and the Catawba County Historical Museum
(repository of many Yoder artifacts).

An indoor box-lunch picnic will be provided (included in the tour
cost) with more entertainment while you eat!After lunch, we will
tour the Museum hear from representatives of the various Yoder
lines and from Gary R. Freeze, Ph.D, a Morehead Scholar and
professor of history at Catawba College. Dr. Freeze is a noted
historian and author of The Catawbans: Crafters of a North
Carolina County (the first of a 2-volume work) who will captivate
you as he easily and humorously recounts the early days of Catawba
County pioneers. Dr. Freeze brings to life stories that have a direct
relation to each of us-whether or not your name is now Yoder!

Also at the Museum on Saturday, the children and grandchildren of
Fred R. Yoder, Ph.D., author of History of the Yoder Family in
North Carolina, who have generously returned many Yoder
artifacts to North Carolina and funded the History,s reprinting in
memory of Dr. Yoder and his work, will be present to help dedicate
both the Yoder collection and his book.

The banquet Saturday night will be held in the Zion Lutheran
Church parish building, just 10 minutes from the Quality Inn.
Delicious down home Southern cookin, will be served by the Ellen
Yoder Coffey Caterers. Don Yoder, Ph.D., professor emeritus at the
University of Pennsylvania, will be the featured speaker. Dr. Yoder
is an articles contributor to the Yoder Newsletter and one of the
world,s foremost scholars on Pennsylvania Dutch folklore and the
immigration of Germanic-speaking people to the New World. He
has authored and edited many books and articles and has traveled
and researched extensively in both Germany and Switzerland. He is
descended from the earliest Oley Valley Yoder immigrants, Hans
and Yost Yoder, and counts and least three separate lines of Yoder
descent in his genealogy. Don is a dynamic, humorous and scholarly
speaker. Don,t miss this opportunity to hear and meet one of our
own most distinguished family members.

On Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m., an ecumenical Yoder clan
worship service will be held in the 1886 chapel of Zion Church. The
Rev. Dr. J. Larry Yoder, Professor of Religion at Lenoir-Rhyne
College and Pastor of Grace Church, will lead the service. Marcus
Yoder (first mayor of Hickory) provided some of the original funds
to build this chapel, and its bricks were hand-molded at the Conrad
Yoder homesite and at the nearby Reuben Yoder mills.

After the service just around the corner in the Zion parish building-
we N.C. Yoders invite you to "come on over for Sunday dinner"
(that,s really lunch)-for more home cookin, and more surprises-at
our 50th Annual Reunion and a chance to view the many Yoder
displays brought for our Reunion, including Conrad Yoder,s
original Bible (ca. early 1700s).

Costs for the weekend events are: $15 registration/overhead; $17
bus tour and lunch, $18 banquet; for a total of only $50 per person
for the whole weekend (excluding the hotel cost, of course)! Further
information and a registration form will be mailed to all YNL
subscribers soon after you receive this issue. Registration deadline
is May 15, 2000.

Information will also be included about ordering Y2K-YNC shirts
(with lots of spelling variations of "Yoder"), our now-famous Yoder
crest (coat-of-arms) golf shirts, and reprints of History of the Yoder
Family in North Carolina. Please order these items in advance-we
hope to have very few left by August!

We,re still working out the final details but we promise to have
planned for you a full and exciting Yoder weekend in the South!
Even though this gathering will be similar to our 1995 event, it will
be different and you,ll have an even better time this year! The hotel
accommodations are great and we,re going to have even more fun
together than we did last time-singin, and dancin, and laughin, and
sharin, and learnin, and eatin, and prayin,-and we,ll remember
those who were with us then.

So from Rachael, Bill, Ted, Regina, Neal, Richard, Larry, Rhoda,
and all of us Yoders in North Carolina, "Y,all come on
back!"***Hickory is located 50 miles northwest of Charlotte, 85

For people in western, MD, SW PA, northern VA, it would be great if the

Washington Township, Greene) County, PA in December 1786, but he
probably never went there as the patent was returned in July
1791. Melchior died circa 1822 in Union (now Snyder) County, PA.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Per Carl Catherman-Mifflinburg, Pa-3/2000
Melchior Yoder died intestate and letters of administration were granted to
Peter Yoder on 22 December 1820. The May 1822 reference is to an orphans'
court proceeding in which Peter Yoder was sued by his brother Henry for
failing to present an accounting of their father's estate. Unfortunately
there is no probate record or court proceeding or land record in either
Northumberland County or Union County which proves that Melchior
Yoder, Jr. was the son of Melchior Yoder.

M5- Melchior Yoder, Jr. born circa 1777 in Philadelphia County, PA. m.
circa 1808 to Catherine Bolender (born 1780-90). Residence, 1810:
Centre Township, Northumberland County, PA. (Melchior - executor's bonds
Pickaway County, Ohio, 1829.) 1830 Census of Pickaway County, Ohio.
M51- son born 1800-1810.
M52- dau. born 1825-30.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Melchior Yoder, Jr. was married to Catherine Bolender, daughter of Adam
Bolender, Jr. and his wife Magdalene Morr. This fact is stated explicitly in
the probate file of Catherine's grandfather Andrew Morr, who died in 1802. I
have no reason to believe that Melchior Yoder, Jr. was ever married to
anyone else.

According to tax records Melchior, Jr. lived in Hartley Twp. (Union Co.) in
1815-17 and prior to that he was in Center Twp. (then Union, now Snyder
Co.). His name is crossed out in the 1818 tax records, which is a good
indication that he moved away in that year, very likely in the spring. This
is probably when he moved to Pickaway County, Ohio.

It is important to note that between 1814 and 1818 Adam Bolender, Jr. and
most (if not all) of his children moved to Ohio, in particular to Stark,
Tuscarawas and Pickaway County. His son Benjamin Bolender moved to
Pickaway County after 1820 and I would guess he did so because his
older sister Catherine Yoder was already there.

Unfortunately I have no idea what became of Catherine (Bolender) Yoder or
her husband Melchior, Jr. or any children they might have had. I would agree
that you are almost certainly correct in your belief that the 1829
executor's bond refers to him. I hope to go to Pickaway County later this
year to do some research and perhaps I will find something that will help.

I guess that by now it is obvious that my interest in Melchior, Jr. is a
result of my research on the Bolender family. Indeed I am working on a
genealogy of four generations of descendents of the immigrant Johann Adam
Bolender.-- Carl P. Catherman, Mifflinburg, PA 3/2000

 

And on his brother Benjamin:

M3- Benjamin Yoder born circa 1773 in Philadelphia County, PA.
m. circa 1798 to Elizabeth (Mary) (Schoch?). Listed as "Benjamin Youter"
in the 1800 Census, living in Northumberland County, PA, married with
one son under 10 years of age. Benjamin died by 15 November
1801. Will probated 30 November 1804, Benjamin Yoder, Penn Township,
Snyder County (part of Northumberland County from 1772 - 1813); wife:
Elizabeth. Children: Melchior, Catherine, Elizabeth, all under 14; Mathias
Schoch was appointed guardian. Source: Probate and Orphans Court Records
of Snyder County, Pennsylvania, 1772- 1855, Charles A. Fisher, Clearfield
Company, Baltimore, 1991, page 54.
+M31- Melchior born 28 March 1799.
M32- Catherine born 1800-1802. m. 20 May 1819 in
Pickaway County, Ohio to Andrew DILL.
M33- Elizabeth born 1800-1802.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
On "Page 6 of 8" regarding Benjamin Yoder you state that his will was
probated on 30 November 1804. This is incorrect, probably the result of a
hasty reading of Charles A. Fisher's booklet on probate and orphans' court
records. In fact Benjamin Yoder died intestate and letters of administration
on his estate were granted to "Mary Yoter and John Yoter" on 15 November
1802. They put in as sureties "Meichior Yoter and Mathias Shock". The 1804
date refers to the orphans' court appointment of Mathias Schoch as guardian
for the minor children Melchior, Catherine and Elizabeth.

There are two records in Union County Deed Book B which prove th. at at some
point the widow and children of Benjamin Yoder moved to Pickaway County,
Ohio and that Andrew Leist, Jr. was appointed to replace Mathias Schoch as
guardian. The first document, on page 204, Andrew Leist, Jr. grants power of
attorney to John Leist of Fairfield County, Ohio to recover the legacies due
to Melchior, Catherine and Elizabeth, heirs of Benjamin Yoder. The second
document, on page 224, is a release from John Leist acknowledging receipt of
those legacies from Michael and Jacob Schoch. Both of these are dated 1817.
Mathias Schoch had died in 1812 and Michael and Jacob were the
administrators of his estate. There should be a record in Pickaway County
wherby the court appointed Andrew Leist, Jr. as guardian to replace Mathias
Schoch.---Per Carl Catherman, Mifflinburg, Pa 3/2000.

You'll notice that Samuel isn't listed in the records for this family...perhaps he broke
away from the Amish and was not talked about.... In 1880 the census shows:

 

Yoder Jacob S 25 MD Holmes German
(YR261742)
" Mattie M w 25 OH
" Samuel s 5/12 OH

So it seems certain that there was a son Samuel in this family.

Anyone know for sure?

Thanks "ginseng"! Yes it was YR14611. Here's an extract from YNL35:

************************************************************
YODER DOWER CHEST ON
"ANTIQUE ROADSHOW"

The Jan. 2000 season opener of the popular PBS TV program
"Antique Roadshow" was broadcast from Columbus, Ohio. Among
the items brought in for appraisal was a Pennsylvania Dutch
"dower chest" with the initials "J.Y." on the front. Two frakturs
(birth certificates) were pasted inside the lid...one for "Johannes
Yoder" born 1815, and the other for "Anna Zook" born 1816, both
in Mifflin County Pennsylvania.
This couple was John D. "Red John" Yoder (YR14611)
(born 6/28/1815 Huntington County, Pa and died 3/16/1895 Logan
County, Ohio age 79y 8m 18d) and Anna Zook (born 7/13/1816
Mifflin County, Pa and died 1/2/1892 in Logan County age 75y 5m
19d). They were married on 12/22/1836 (about the date estimated
for the manufacture of the chest---which was given an appriased
value of from $10-12,000). Both John and Anna are buried in the
Alexandria Cem., Union Twp., Logan County, Ohio.
(Thanks to readers Shirley M. Brown and Julie Getter for both

Subject: [YODER] Yoder dower chest

There was a Yoder-related item featured on "Antiques Roadshow"
broadcast by the local PBS affiliate last night (Ch 12 out of
Wilmington, DE ... also serves SE Pennsylvania). It may have
been a repeat, so this may be old news.

The "Roadshow" was in Columbus, Ohio, and someone brought in
a dower chest belonging to Johannes Yoder and Anna (?) Zug,
who were married around 1835.

Attached to the inside lid of the chest were the fraktur
baptismal certificates of Johannes and Anna. The baptisms
took place not long before the marriage, suggesting that these
may have been Amish or Mennonite Yoders.

Checking the online Yoder files, Johannes and Anna match well
with YR14611 in the "dick Christel" line.

Appraised value of the chest was 10,000-12,000.

Chris, I found a Sarah Yoder in a Tennessee Census Index recently, but don't have
the resources to check whether it could be Sally. When I do that, it might give
me a direction to follow in locating them. Keep me in mind if you see ANYTHING on
Adam or Sally. Even the smallest hint could help. I want more than anything to
have something concrete proved about this family for the reunion this summer. I
am planning to come, and really hope I can provide documented proof on the link
between Adam and Ephraim. I have everything from Conrad down to me proven beyond
a shadow of a doubt except proof of Ephraim's parents.

Chris, I just sent you a message to the newsletter, so the world can see my
thoughts!
I just viewed Wyndham Graham Clampett's site again, and now there is a death date
for Sally Yoder...31 Oct. 1846. Still no place of death for Adam or Sally. I
wrote him again for the contributor of the death dates, and maybe this time he
will respond. If this is true, then that was not Sally Yoder in the 1860
(Hamilton) TN census. Who is that? Somehow, someone will know where to locate
Adam and Sally between 1820 and 1846 & 1864. Maybe I'll get lucky this time.

Sounds like you may not have the data we have published on the
internet...Here's our article from YNL 11 back in the late 80s.

*********************************************
ADAM YODER..."moved to Tennessee and all traces of him were lost...."

Adam Yoder was the youngest son of Conrad Yoder, founder of the
North Carolina branch
of the Yoder family. In the History of the Yoder Family in North
Carolina by Fred R. Yoder (whose
obituary appears elsewhere in this issue), Adam's birthdate is reported
from Bible records to have
been June 23, 1785. Family tradition states that Adam moved to Tennessee
and "all traces of him were
lost". After several years of gathering and trying to decipher clues, we
set out in this article to piece
together what appears to have become of him and his family. We'd like to
emphaize that what is
painted here seems a very likely picture, but one which is largely
constructed by inference.

The 1820 North Carolina census shows Adam Yoder and his family
living in Haywood
County, North Carolina. Haywood is west of the Yoder settlement in
Catawba County, and closer to
the border with Tennessee. In the 1830 census, Adam is not listed in
North Carolina, nor is he found
in any of the adjoining counties.

Col. George Yoder, Civil War veteran and historian of the North
Carolina Yoder family,
reported that Adam had married a Sallie Davis. Buford Yother of LaFayette
GA has found a reference
to a Daniel Yother who married an Elender Davis on Feb. 24, 1807 in
"Marriage Bonds of Tyron
and Lincoln Counties NC". Conrad did have a son named Daniel, but he was
married to Elizabeth
Cline well before that date. Could this record have referred to Adam?

Unidentified Yoders appear in northern Georgia beginning with the
1840 census. In Lumpkin
County, a John, Ephraim and an Adam are shown. In Gilmer County, there
is a David Yeoder. A
George Yother is listed in Hall County. The Adam is too young to have
been Conrad's son. With
David Yeoder, an aged male (70 to 80 years old) is recorded, but he is
too old to have been Adam (he
may have been a father-in-law?).

The 1850 census is the first one in which the format provides for
listing information about
each member of the family. It shows a David, George, Jefferson, Jason,
and Ephraim Yother in
Gilmer County, and a John and "Edmund" (called "Adam" in the 1870
census) in Lumpkin County,
also with the last name spelled Yother. The "Yother" spelling is not
without precedence in the North
Carolina line. In addition to the 1807 marriage record, in the first U.S.
census of the 1790 (taken after
Conrad had died) the widow "Catherine Yother" is listed as head of the
family.

The first generation male Yother/Yoder line of Georgia is shown on
the chart included with
this article. The data displayed in the chart is based census information
and assorted records to include
some gathered from current day descendants of these lines. An
interesting picture emerges. We know
that Conrad's son Adam was still in NC as of 1820. We also know that he
reportedly "moved to
Tennessee" at some time. The older males in this outline were all born
in North Carolina between
about 1807 and 1822. The youngest of these from the 1850 census, Jason,
was born about 1827 in
Tennessee. This matches the pattern of migration for Adam. No other
Yoder/Yother branch is known
to have been in NC at the appropriate time. The oldest male's birth is
consistent with the Yother/Davis
marriage date. (Note: According to Janet Gibson of Atlanta GA, one
granddaughter of John D.
Yother told of hearing that the family name was once spelled "Yoder").

The Tennessee census records don't show any Yoders/ and Yothers in
either 1830 or 1840.
The only Yoder in the 1850 census for that state is a son of one of
Adam's brothers.

Several pre-1840 references appear for members of this apparent family in
Georgia. During the
Florida War of 1836-7, an Ephraim Yoder served with the Mounted
Volunteers, Nelson's Battalion
from Georgia. In the War of 1837-8, Adam, Ephraim and John Yoder served
Company C of the
Georgia Mounted Volunteers. Early marriage records for Lumpkin County
report that on Aug.
1,1838, Ephraim Yother married Susan Mathews, and on Nov. 22, 1839, John
Yother married Anna
Blackstock. A later census record for John D. Yother reports that both
his father and mother were
born in North Carolina, a fact which corresponds with Adam and Sallie
Yoder.

Although we have no information at this point to confirm that Adam, son
of Conrad, was the father
of any of these Georgia Yothers, it would certainly seem very possible
based on the clues assembled
to this point. We welcome any information or hints our readers may have
to offer which could help
prove or disprove this specuation!

Chris,
Thanks for sending me the Yoder/Yother information. All of it agrees
with my personal research. The point I was trying to make was that the guy
from South Africa (not Australia) said Adam died 14 July 1864 - see
webmaster@clampett.net or
http://www.clampett.net/centre/genealogy/index_genealogy.htm
The man's name is Wyndham Graham Clampett. I have tried to contact him
several times, and although my message wasn't returned to me, he has yet to
reply. If he has a specific date that Adam died, then he must know where he
died. An actual date means he is not assuming that he died in the 1860's.
Have you heard of him, and has he ever contacted you?
Has a descendant of any of Adam's 3 daughters ever contacted you? If
they stayed in Tennessee, I just know they were living with or near a
daughter.
More later.

You can investigate more on the Yoder homepage at:

I'd suggest that you also look for birth records in Fulton County to see
if you can back throung the generations to your Yoder grandfather, his
father and so forth. Our data on file generally brings things up to the
early days of this century.

Best regards,

Subject: [YODER] George Yother b. 1809, Union County, Ga.

A wonderful addition to our Georgia Yother Information....unfortunately,
there is nothing in Joy Stone's family records which either support or
deny that this George was a son of Adam, son of Conrad.

Special clues are....confirmation that son Con825 was "Adam David", and
the "Union County Georgia" 1809 birth reference...

We'll crack this nut yet!!!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(From Joy Stone-Jun 2000- This information is from my grandfather,
who wrote this down in a family book in the 1940,s. I can not say
whether he was a reliable source or not, but I have found that
throughout his book some of the details are not correct,
but here is what he has:

Con82 George William Yother, Sr. of Union county Georgia was born
May 9, 1809 and died May 6, 1866. He married Elizabeth Abercrumbie in
1833. (Your notes indicate he may have fought in the Civil War. I found
a
George Yother listed in the union in the 6th Tennessee Mounted Infantry,
Co. A and I found a George Yother listed in the confederate army with
the 38th NC Infantry, Co. F, I don,t know if either one is who we are
looking for.) Elizabeth Abercrumbie was born April 14, 1817 and
died Dec 24, 1880.
Con821 - Wilson Yother born Jan 18, 1835
Con822 - John J. Yother born Feb 12, 1837. Died 1864
The family book says "John fought in the Civil War. At the age of 27
He was missing in action, he was killed in 1864 in the Rossville Gap
where
now stands the Iowa Monument. His entire company went to General
Thomas at Chickamauga after a hard fight against Gen. Bragg,s Army on
Missionary Ridge in Chattanooga." (My grandfather indicates in his notes
that John fought for the union but so far I have not been able to locate
a
John Yother fighting for the union. I have only looked in the southern
states though. I did find three John Yothers listed as fighting for the
Confederate side. {10th Missouri Infantry, Co. F/ 19th Tennessee
Infantry
Co. F/ and the Cherokee Legion Infantry, State Guard, Co. D} I checked
the
roster for the Cherokee Legion Guard and found two Yother,s but they were
the wrong age and I have not discovered rosters for the other units yet.)
Con823 - Mariah Jane Yother was born Dec 6, 1839, died July 18, 1887.
She married Robert Jackson July 10, 1856. Robert died July 28, 1856.
In 1858 Mariah married Isaac Reed. Isaac was born May 9, 1837, died
Oct 6, 1875. They had one daughter, Lizzie Jane Reed (my grandfather's
mother) who was born Jan 23, 1868. in 1877 Mariah married James
Futerel.
Con824 - James Fate Yother was born 1842. He left home and went
west.
Con825 - Adam David Yother was born June 15, 1848
Con826 - George W. Yother, Jr. was born Nov 12, 1849 and died 1914.
He married Bell Clemons in 1880 and they had no children.
Con827 - Sarah Ann Yother was born Feb 28, 1852 and she died 1918.
She married Jess Brown in 1872. Jess was born in 1853 and died in 1907.

They had 5 sons and 2 daughters.
Con828 - (Not mentioned in my grandfather,s record)
Con829 - Mary Yother was born Jan 9, 1861. She married Joe Stringer
in 1885. Joe was born in 1860. They had 3 sons and 2 daughters.

That is all the information in my grandfather,s record book, I,m sorry
there is not more but hopefully this helps to fill in a few little gaps.
Like
I said, I,m not sure how accurate the information is but at least it,s a
starting point. Thanks again for the Yoder web site, it,s really
wonderful.

The following is an article we published in the second Yoder Newsletter issue in oct.
1983. You can see he listed in the Amish Yoder files as "YR18" in our homepage at:

www.yodernewsletter.org

The book Amish and Amish Mennonite Genealogies indicates that Barbara was the second
wife of John Shirk and that they had no issue., A reading of her will below supports
that conclusion..

best regards,

Chris Yoder
****************************************************
REVELATIONS FROM BARBARA SHIRK'S WILL

Rachel Kreider

Identifying the early Amish Yoders in America and relating them in families has for
years been a very
difficult exercise. The repetition of names and the conflicting data from early times
made the puzzle
almost impossible to solve. Descendants of Christian Yoder Der Schweisz were good
record-keepers, and
when one day I impatiently asked, "Then why didn't one of them write down who his father
was and his
uncles and aunts?", the answer was "In those days all those who mattered to them already
knew."

As it turns out, someone had listed his siblings. On October 22, 1809, one Christian
Yoder (Butcher
Christ) wrote: "now I will write down in what years my Father's brothers and sisters
were (born)'':

Aunt Barbara Yoder Born in the year 1725
Aunt Mattie Yoder Born in the year 1726
Uncle Christian Yoder Born in the year 1728
Aunt Elizabeth Yoder Born in the year 1729
Uncle John Yoder Born in the year 1732
Father Yost Yoder Born in the year 1734
Aunt Franny Yoder Born in the year 1739
Uncle Jacob Yoder Born in the year 1740

Further along in the account, Jacob C. Yoder, his grandson, who continued the genealogy
and had
descended from two different Yoder lines, said that on his mother's side he was
descended from Butcher
Christian, son of Yost, who was the son of Strong Jacob. That the above children
belonged to Strong Jacob
was thus handed down in print from this source, an others, for many years.

Research in the Lancaster Courthouse, however, showed that there was something not right
about this.
Strong Jacob did have the same names for his children but the dates did not fit. He
himself had to be of
the same generation as those children. Surely Butcher Christ knew who his grandfather
was, but the
information from his grandson, who was that much further removed and had a mix of Yoder
blood on
both sides of the house, was hardly that reliable. By 1970 Dr. Hugh Gingerich of
Washington, D. C., had
turned sustained attention to the Yoder problems and familiarised himself not only with
the individual
Yoders but the Amish families with whom they intermarried. The task was not easy, for
example, he
found two John Yoders both born about 1732 and each married to an Anna!

As it often happens, the key to the puzzle turned up unexpectedly while in pursuit of
other interests. Paul
V. Hostetler of Connecticut, grandson of the Hostetler historian who helped Harvey
Hostetler compile the
Descendants of Jacob Hochstetler (the famous Hostetler book of 1912), was trying to
clear up some
problems in connection with his own roots. He was referred to Annette Burget of the
Pennsylvania
German Society. She responded with a long letter, which confirmed that most of us had
been on the
wrong track also in identifying the immigrant Jacob Hochstetler. When in the course of
their
correspondence she found out that Paul was also researching Hartzlers and pinpointing
the location of the
earliest Amish farms, she sent him a copy of the will of one Barbara Shirk, which had a
reference in it to
a Hertzler. He promptly and generously shared it with Dr. Gingerich and received a
telephone call from
the latter that first night. Barbara Yoder, the second wife of John Shirk, had named her
brothers and
sisters, outlining for us one of the first two Amish families in America!

Quoting from the beginning and the end of the will, we find: "I, Barbara Shirk of
Cocalico Township,
Lancaster County, in the State of Pennsylvania have hereunto set my hand and seal this
seventh day of
January in the year one thousand seven hundred and ninety." She had made her mark (X) in
the presence
of Martin Keller, John Keller, and John V. Dishony. In Item I she nominated "my beloved
brother-in-law
John Hertzler and my nephew Jacob Jother to be executors" The bequests were made "to my
beloved
brothers and sisters viz, Christian Jother, his heirs, Jacob Jother, Michael Jother,
John Jother, my sister
Magdalene her children, my sisters Anna King and Veronica Hertzler.., Later in the will
she repeated the
names but after "my sister Catherine Kauffman her children jointly one share" she added
"but their Father
Isaac Kauffman shall have no part nor claim thereto...."

Coupled with information gleaned elsewhere, Dr. Gingerich could now construct a list
like this
(approximating the dates within several years):

Catherine ca 1720 m. Isaac Kauffman
Christian ca 1722; d 1772 in Berks County; m Barbara (probably Beiler)
Magdalena ca 1724 m. Christian Fisher
Jacob ca 1726; d. 1790 in Lancaster Co. m. Anna _ (This one fits to be the real Strong
Jacob)
Anna ca l728; d. in Berks County; m. Samuel Koenig (King)
Michael ca 1730; d. 1799 in Mifflin Co
John ca l 732; d. 1804 in Berks County; m. Anna
Barbara ca 1734; d. 1790 in Lancaster Co; second w/o John Shirk
Veronica ca 1736; d. 1806 in Mifflin C,m. John Hertzler

The mother of these children, according to persistent tradition, was the famous "Widow
Barbara". To this
day there has not been found any satisfactory documentation for this, nor has it been
disproved. There are
nine children in the family, but not eight of them sons, as one story has it. We are
inclined to believe that
this is indeed the family of Widow Barbara and that the father therefore died at sea.
There has been
speculation about his name, some even published as fact, but more evidence is needed.
>From a study of
land transfers we believe that the father of the other family was Christian. A Bible
record gives a death
date for him of November, l775, the autumn before Christian Der Schweiz, now believed to
be his son,
came over the Alleghenies to Somerset County.

Finding this will was indeed a break through. Dr. Gingerich could now account for all
the Amish Yoder
males in the first three generations and could make intelligent speculations on the
unnamed marriage
partners, but there was still work to do. Were the heads of the two families brothers?
Does it signify
anything that the oldest son in each family was named Christian? What was the correct
separation of
children in the two John-Anna families? What is the most promising connecting link with
the Anabaptist
Joders of that time in Europe? Much progress has been made, but the fascinating process
of refining the
Yoder family outlines goes on and on. Perhaps we are looking for documentation that no
longer even
exists.

Neal D. Wilfong, secretary of the Yoder Family in North

up to date. For many years, Neal has been active in tracking and
reporting on members of the family at the annual reunion. This 5-

lines of the family omitted in the initial work. For it to succeed, Neal
needs the help of all Conrad family members in sending the current
information about their lines.
When the Yoder Book was originally published in 1970, it
concentrated only on two of the sons of Conrad Yoder, John and
David who remained in North Carolina. Descendants of daughter
Catherine Yoder who married John Baker are not addressed. Neither
are those of sons Daniel, Elias, and Jacob who moved to Indiana. Nor
are the descendants of son Adam. Since the Yoder Newsletter was
launched in 1983, we have played a major role in unearthing much of
the "lost history" on these other Yoder lines. Just in the last two
months, other folks have offerred additional information: Anita Nail

RICHARD ENLOE YODER, SR. 1919-2000

Richard Enloe Yoder, Sr., 81, of Kingston Manor, Hickory, and formerly of
Morocco, Indiana, died August 26, 2000 at his home after a period of
declining health.

Born in Catawba County on May 1, 1919, he was the son of the late Enloe and
Hettie Dietz Yoder, grandson of Col. George M. Yoder, Catawba's 19th century
historian, and a descendant of the pioneer Conrad Yoder. A son, Richard E.
Yoder, Jr. of Indiana preceded him in death.

Survivors include daughters Jean Yoder of Hickory, Kathleen Yoder Rotert of
Arlington, Texas, and Mary and Ed Gurley of Idaho Falls; sister Helen Yoder
Hahn of Concord; brother Jack and Phyllis Yoder of Winter Park, Florida;
four grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and six nieces and nephews.

A graduate of Blackburn High School and member of the 1941 class at
Lenoir-Rhyne College, Mr. Yoder became interested in aviation and learned to
fly at age sixteen after seeing a barnstorming aerial act in the Blackburn
community. He was a civilian flight instructor in South Carolina during
World War II, and spent his entire career as a senior flight engineer for
American Airlines based in Chicago. He was the pilot for the Adali
Stephenson Democratic presidential campaign planes in 1952 and 1956, and
became acquainted with Bobby Kennedy and future Secretary of Agriculture
Willard Wirtz with whom he carried on a lifelong correspondence. He flew
many cargo missions from Hawaii to DaNang and Saigon during the Vietnam War.

He was one of the two most senior employees of American Airlines when he
retired, and was an active member of the Gray Eagles company retirees group.
He was a Mason, Red Cross volunteer, and member of the Catawba County
Historical Association. Upon his return to Hickory, he became a volunteer
with the Hickory City Schools, and tutored a number of children with
learning disabilities or other special needs. He served as President and
Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Yoder Family in North Carolina and
ensured the continuance of the annual family reunion. Like his grandfather,
he corresponded with Yoders from many family lines across the United States.

The family will receive Tuesday night from 6:30 to 8:30 P.M. at Bass-Smith
Funeral Home. The Rev. Dr. J. Larry Yoder will conduct the funeral service
on Wednesday at 11:00 A.M. at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, 4536
Hickory-Lincolnton Road, Newton.

Active and honorary pallbearers will be Phillip Elmore, Michael Elmore,
Clement Hahn, Jr., Micah Hahn, Justin Hahn, John Hahn, Gregory Yoder, Al
King, Ralph Johnson, Ronnie Teague, David Wilfong, John Wilfong, Neal
Wilfong, Brad Weaver, Bill Yoder, and Ted Yoder.

Memorials may be made to his alma mater or church.

suffering several strokes. He retired from Bluffton College, Bluffton,

This is Shannon Yoder and I was wondering if you have information on my

Married Hazel Helk On April 20 1935 and Died in 1942. I need to know who
his parents are? and any other information is greatly appretiated.
Thankyou,

E mail me direct at

Unfortunately, we don't have anything on file on Elmer b. 1913.
If someone with access to the 1920 soundex...find "Elmer" as a 7 year old
boy in a family group in Northumberland County....Get his parents names
from that, and feed them back to Chris Yoder at the YNL, we could likely
trace them on back. We do have the Pa censuses up to 1900 on the Web
