Comments by Tim Conrad- I believe that Peter Yoder's wife was 

Catharina Trout.  Anthony's death record confirms this.  She was

 likely the Catharina, daughter of Balthasar Trout and Eva Moser.  

She was married 10 Aug 1783.  This was shortly after her father 

died, so she is single in the will. Peter had a land dealing with the 

other Trouts and was a Tanner like his father in law, also 

according to land records.  Also, this was the only Trout family 

in the area at the time. OK, Here's info on Peter's kids:


Hannah, married John Wolfgang-

1810 census, pg 826, Upper Mahantongo, 00100-00100

1820 census, pg 96, Upper Mahantongo, 100010-30010

1830 census, pg 68, Upper Mahantongo, 0001 001-1120 001

I figure Hannah born circa 1788.  Not sure, but I think John is a Sr.



1820 census, pg 92, Upper Mahantongo, 210100-00100

1830 census, pg 069, Upper Mahantongo, 2010 01-1200 01

admin in OC 6:382- minors listed in OC 6:40 and 6:275

I figure Jeremiah born maybe 1795.


Maria married George Hartlein.  7 Oct 1797 - 19 Sep 1872.

She's buried with him at Jacob's Church, Reed Station, near Paxinos

in Northumberland Co.  Some folks think his wife is a Moser/Masser/Mosser,

but I think they're confused by the fact that George Harlein's parents

were Conrad Hartlein and Elisabeth Moser.  The records clearly show

she's a Yoder, d/o Peter.

George Hartlein:

1830 census, pg 67, Upper Mahantongo, 2000 1-0010 1

1840 census, pg 92, Upper Mahantongo, 1220 01-1000 11

1850 census, Upper Mahantongo, George 46, Maria 50, etc

1860 census, pg 571/#1411, Shamokin Twp, Mary 63, etc


Solomon, born circa 1800.  census:

1820 census, pg 92, Upper Mahantongo, 100100-01000

1830 census, pg 69, Upper Mahantongo, 2210 1-0000 1

1840 census, pg 94, Upper Mahantongo, 3103 001-0100 01

1850 census, pg 383, Upper Mahantongo, Solomon 50, Elizabeth 48, etc

1860 census

1870 census, Hegins Twp, Solomon 70, etc


Catharine married Benjamin Neiswender.  I have her born circa 1803. census:

1840 census, pg 94, Upper Mahantongo, 0100 1-2000 01

1850 census, Upper Mahanoy, Benjamin 35, Catharine 47, etc


Sarah married David Stein.  David's will mentions Hartlein nephew in

Philadelphia.  Sarah 5 Sep 1805-11 Jun 1882, buried Howerter's

(she may be called Salome on the stone, not sure offhand).  Census:

1840 census, pg 093, Upper Mahantogo, 0000 01-0000 1

1850 census, Pine Grove Twp, David 39, Sarah 38, etc???



1880 census, pg 14/3/190/#134, Upper Mahantongo, David 72, Sarah 75

(and Sarah Yoder 12, servant)

a David Stein, will, Upper Mahantongo, 1888 (7:224)

mentions nephew Goerge J. Hartlein of Philadelphia



"Back to Peter - here's the deeds involved:  19:205 and 19:384  (one

for a deed and one for the bond - they looked the same to me basically

but I only have a copy of the one!)  Here's the info from page 384.:


"Henry Schrekingast farmer and Harry Grining? both of Mahantonog Township in

the County of Berks and State.... That we are held and firmty? bound unto Peter

Yotter and Abraham Yotter of Mahantongo Township ... in the ful and just sum

of twelf hundred pounds lawful money of PA to be paid to the said Peter Yotter

and Abraham Yotter or to their certain Attorney Executor Administroarors or Assigns

...25 May 1802  ... for the sum of six hundred pounds ... paid by the above named

Peter and Abraham Yotter and by indnture... make over unto the said Peter

and Abraham Yotter two certain tracts of land containing in the whole three

hundred sixty five acres and 154 perches..."

Jacob Reiner (my ancestor) was the witness


So basically, Peter and Abraham had lots of trust with each other!

("Harrison Yoder's will is recorded in Sunbury.  He instructs his

son Felix (only child) to give some money to "Mary Yoder" who 

can only guess was his unmarried sister.  Felix sells Harrisons land

and I have Felix's little book with the sales records.  I haven't

found where he actually gave Mary any money.  Maybe she wasn't alive.

"Harrison's death is recorded in Pottsville.  He died 24 Nov 1901

buried 27 Nov 1901 at the "Union Church".  Likely St Paul's Union

Church in Pitman where his son Felix was buried shortly after this.

There is no stone there, and I'm waiting for a reply from the Church

confirming his burial there.  His wife Hannah died sometime between

1880 and 1902.  Hannah was a daughter of John Wagner and wf

Magdalena Kramer.I have the details of the above if anyone is interested...

                Father b. France     Mother b. Belgium


My P.I. sent me an obit for Clair Yoder-- died 29 Oct. 1952, age 55 &

birth year is the census report of his being 21 must have been

result of lying about his age earlier, to get work?  The obit is

courtesy of Mr. Bill Martin of the _Nanty Glo Journal_, Nanty Glo, PA,

where the mine accident took place.  Mr. Martin is also town historian.


Clair m. the family servant, I guess!  But i think the places of

birth for her parents are reversed...Louis Detandt came from

Antwerp, Clara Lermineaux from France...I think!


Clair McKinley Yoder is buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery; Section E,

lot 461, grove #1.  Mercedes is buried next to him, in grove #2.

Both names on one stone.  (Is this LDS lady an angel, or what!)

children and others I know had children.  My biggest source of that type of

2.  OH 13382 - Solomon Yoder (b. 1821)  OBIT:

       On Saturday night, November 19th, at 11 o'clock, Father Solomon Yoder

closed his eyes to all that is mortal, having lived 83 years, 6 months and 9

days. Born in Schuylkill County April 30, 1821, he moved to Jefferson county in

1859, where he resided up to his death. He was a son of Solomon Yoder and had

two sisters and ten brothers, of whom one sister, Mrs. Edward Sherman of

Strattanville, and three brothers, William S. Yoder of Knoxdale, Amos Yoder of

Hawthorne and John Yoder of Higginsville, are living. His wife, Elizabeth Yoder

died November 25th, 1889. Since that time he made his home with his son, George

Yoder of Knoxdale. Mr. Yoder had a family of eight children, three of whom

survive him, Adam Yoder of Newtonburg, George Yoder and Mrs. Christena Wolf of

Knoxdale. The funeral services were conducted on Tuesday, November 22nd by Rev.

W. G. Fulton, in the U. B. church, after which interment was made at Centre

Hill cemetery. It is worthy of note that Father Yoder yet walked to the polls

on election day and cast his vote for the most popular man in the United States

for president. Father Yoder has been a Christian and a consistent member of

the U. B. Church since about the year 1860, when we first learned to know him.

"Hi!  My grandmother's aunt, Florence Eberhart married John Bernard Yoder

in the 1890s in the state of WA in Mason County, probably.  They had two

sons:  Edward b. 01-03-1897 in Shelton, Mason County, WA and George b.

07-08-1905 in Aberdeen, Grays Harbor, WA.  Florence's home when my

grandmother was young was in Aberdeen, WA where she ran a boarding

house.  I just wondered if anyone needed to connect with any Eberhart

descendants.  There is Florence's brother George's descendant, Mike L.;

there is Florence's sister, Rosa's descendants, Joy M. and Bill A.; and

there is myself a descendant of Florence's sister, Martha.

I was wondering what happened to the marriage of Florence and John Yoder

because I think they were divorced.

I remember meeting Ed & Adaline and Ruby Yoder when I was a girl living

in the L.A. area.---Edith "Edie" Sando, Oct.1999


Hi!  We have John Bernard Yoder and I heard that he was a fireman.  One

of their sons was a fireman, also.  The other son was an officer in the

County, MO and died June 25, 1931 in Los Angeles, CA.  She married John

They had three children:


Edward Joshua Yoder, b. Jan. 03, 1897 in Shelton, Mason County, WA; died

Dec. 13, 1972 in San Fernando Valley, California.

From Dick Yoder of Bechtelsville

Hi Chris,


    I'm going to send some of the backup information for this via mail . I know some of it I sent quite sometime ago , however I want to coordinate everything for you since you have so many Yoder branches to follow.


    I will put the Upper Mahantango info. at the bottom of this .


    Norwegian township , Sch. Co. was founded in 1811 from Berks Co.  The tax records for Norwegian twsp. first show Abraham Yoder there in 1817 . Each year there was a different tax assessor , two of whom wrote in German which didn't help me . Abraham was the township tax assessor in 1818 . ( I'm enclosing a copy of it ).

1817 --he was assessed at $400 ,

1818         "                        $670 and taxed $1.01

1819           the same

1820        shows him with 170 acres assessed at $250 ????

1821                                    same

1822  he vanishes


    I went to the index of Common Pleas Defendants and found :Docket #1 1812   42-P23

                                                                                                    #2    1815   27-P79

                                                                                                    #2    1816   5-P125

                                                                                                    #2    1816   9-P127

                                                                                                    #2    1816   44-P142

                                                                                                    #3    1818   19-P103

                                                                                                    #3    1818   20-P103

                                                                                                    #4    1821   110-P316  

                                                                                                    #5    1821   38-P63


All the judgements were against Abraham.


In the 1820 census it lists Ab. with 1male 0-10 ; 1 male 11-16 1 male 45+     1 female 11-16 ; 1 female 45


    The only Ab I have who fits this age is OH 135.
