                        UNLINKED YODER LINES

                               Part 2

This section presents various miscellaneous Yoder lines. For these folk, either their connections back to an early immigrant groups is not known, or they represent a latter immigration. Each Alpha prefix represents a distinct family. In this section, Alpha prefixes have increased to two digit (i.e. "AC").  When a gap appears in lettering, this generally means a link has been established into one of the major lines, and the family information has been shifted to that major line.

(obituary 1847-George W. Yoder-1934-

George W. Yoder was born in Seneca County, Ohio, Feb. 6, 1847 and died

Sept. 24, 1934 aged 87 years, seven months and 18 days.

When he was eight years of age he came with his widowed mother, four sisters

and three brothers to Williams County where they settled on a wooded farm,

three miles east and one mile south of Edon.  At the age of 16 when the

Civil war had broken out he enlisted with Company H, the third Ohio Cavalry

where he served two years and six months, with the Union Army with which he

endured the hardships of camp life and danger on the battlefields.

After the war he came home to the family and in the year 1874 he married his

wartime sweetheart, Miss Adaline Corbette.  To this union were born two

sons, Charles of Montpelier and Adam of Pioneer.

In 1880 he moved with his family to a farm which he had bought just west of

Pioneer where he lived a very progressive and successful life.

He was a man of sturdy character ever mindful of the welfare of others and

always ready to aid in time of need.

He leaves to mourn their loss, one aged sister, Cilicia Haynes in Washington

state; two sons, Charles and Adam, three grandsons, George, Lorin and Ralph

and four great-grandchildren and other relatives and friends.  Funeral

services at the home, Wednesday afternoon conducted by Rev. J.F. Slough

burial in Floral Grove cemetary.-- Karen Newberry

("Dear Chris,---   I have resolved my problems with the tie between the Eppenheimers and Yoders. I recently bought a book "The Ball Cousins" by Margaret B. Kinsey. In that book the marriage of Martha Eppenheimer to William Yoder is documented.

Martha was a relative of Joseph Ball who had left a large sum of money at the

time of his death. He had no will, so the lawers traced down all his relative

of which one was Martha Eppenheimer. In 1858 DeSelding District of Columbia

Deed, filed by Charles DeSelding, lawer, showed the marriage and that they

lived in Lancaster PA. The 1850 census for Lancaster shows William, 46,

plasterer, Martha 48, Levi 19, Anna 17, Margaret 14, and Mary 11.   So I guess

that takes out that blank spot in your files. O by the way Martha received

$6.85 as her part of the estate.--Wes Leiser,

Son of Jacob Yoder and Barbara Shallenberger (21 May 1734- died 1822), see feature in YNL 29. According to, they married in 1751. This link also presents the ancestry of Barbara Shallenberger.

In Heidelberg Twp Berks Co, Pa. Jacob Yoder, previous of Earle Twp, Lancaster County, bought land  in 1763. Jacob purchased his land from Henry Martin, heir to one Nicolas Martin for the sum of 450 pounds.

This Jacob appears in various tax lists for the township, including:

1779- Jacob Yoder 100 acres 2 horses 7 cattle Tax 700

1784- Jacob Yoder 140 acres 4 horses 4 cattle 4 sheep

Jacob Yoder 1.5.0


The Berks County Will Book shows that when Jacob died, his son Jacob was named administrator of his estate in 1815.(10) The Recorder of Deeds indicates that "Land warranted to Nicholas Martin Nov. 1746 & 25 Oct 1751, conveyed to Jacob Yoder in 1763 who died intestate..leaving unto his heirs...Jacob Yoder and Barbara Yoder."

That this Barbara was an unmarried daughter is attested by the record of her estate in 1822, when Jacob Yoder her brother was charged with its administration.(1)2 (Strangely enough, the same year Barbara (Rupp) Yoder died.)

Yoder. -- Den 18. April bei Hayesville, O., Heinrich Yoder im Alter von 67 Jahren, 5

Monaten und 18 Tagen. Er wurde bei Oberweiler in der Rheinpfalz geboren. Am 1.

März 1861 verehelichte er sich mit Elisabeth Rees. Im April 1861 kamen sie nach

Amerika und waren seitdem bei Hayesville, Ashland Co., Ohio, wohnhaft. Sie lebten 39

Jahre in glücklicher Ehe. Der Herr segnete sie mit 4 Töchtern, von denen eine, Maria,

am 28. März 1873 starb. Br. Yoder wurde christlich erzogen und schon früh in seinem

Leben wurde er gläubig an den Herrn Jesum Christum, und schloss sich der

Mennonitengemeinde an. In diesem seinem Glauben beharrte er bis an sein seliges

Ende. Die Beerdigung fand am 20. in Hayesville, O., statt. Die Leichenrede über Ps. 90,

12 wurde von N. C. Hirschy von Wadsworth, O., gehalten.

Yoder. -- Am 10. Juli in Ashland, Ohio Elisabeth Yoder geb. Rees. Sie wurde am 26.

September 1833 bei Albesweiler, Rheinpfalz, Deutschland geboren. Am 1. März 1861

verehelichte sie sich mit Heinrich Yoder. Bald darauf wanderten sie aus nach Amerika

und siedelten sich bei Hayesville, Ohio an, wo sie in aller Gottesfurcht lebten. Bruder

Yoder wurde am 18. April, 1900 heimgerufen. Letzten April zog die Verstorbene mit

ihren zwei Töchtern nach Ashland. Dieses neuen Heims bedurfte sie aber nicht mehr

lange, denn sie starb daselbst am 10. Juli im Alter von 69 Jahren, 9 Monaten und 14

Tagen. In früher Jugend schon hatte sie durch Anschluss an eine Mennonitengemeinde

den Bund mit dem Herrn gemacht. Diesem Bunde blieb sie treu bis an Ende. Die

Begräbnisfeier fand am 12. Juli statt und wurde von Pred. J. W. Kliewer von 

Wadsworth, Ohio geleitet. Pred. Philpott von der Methodisten Kirche in Ashland und

Pred. Steinhage von der Reformierten Kirche in Spencerville, Ohio beteiligten sich an

der Feier. Die Verstorbene wurde auf dem Hayesville Friedhof zur Seite ihres Gatten zur

Ruhe gebettet.

from Montgomery's Bio. Hist of Berks Co:

DOTTERER, MATHIAS H., p. 1195 Surnames:



Mathias H. Dotterer, who is engaged in the grocery and general merchandise business at No. 1755 Centre Avenue, Reading, Pa., was born in District township, Berks county, Dec. 26, 1861, and is descended from (I) Mathias Dotterer, the emigrant ancestor of the family, through (II) Mathias (2), (III) Daniel, (IV) Mathias and (V) David.


(I) Mathias Dotterer, whose name of the passenger list is given as Mattheus Dotter, came to America on the ship "Jacob," Captain Adolph De Grove, from Amsterdam, last from Shields, England, qualifying at Philadelphia, Oct. 2, 1749. On the same ship were Nicklaus and Martin Dotter, who may have been brothers, or sons over sixteen years of age. His son, Mathias (1744-1827) was about five years old at the time, and because of his tender years his name would not appear on the passenger list.


(II) Mathias Dotterer, son of Mathias, born Jan 22, 1744, became a pioneer of Lower Berks county. His name is variously spelled Dotterer, Dottero, and Toderrow. On the red sandstone that marks his grave just south of the Hill Church, is the following inscription " Mathias Dotterer, son of Mathias and Catharine, Born Jan 22, 1744, Died June 30, 1827, aged 83 years, 5 months and 8 days." His wife is buried at his side, her grave being marked by the following inscription "Anna Maria, daughter of Adam and Catharine Imbody, and wife Mathias Dotterer. She was born May 17, 1743, married 1765, and lived in holy wedlock over sixty years. She had 2 sons, 26 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren at the time of her death, which occurred Feb. 24, 1825, aged 81 years 9 months and 17 days." They had two sons: Daniel was executor of his father's will (on record in German in Will Book 6, p. 99) ; and Mathias.


(III) Daniel Dotterer, son of Mathias, was born July 4, 1766, and he died Sept 13, 1844, in the seventy-ninth year of his age. He lived in Earl township, where he owned a farm, and he also owned a tract in Rockland township, bequeathing the latter to his son Henry in his will made Oct. 29, 1834. This will, probated Oct. 14, 1844, is on record in Will Book 9, p. 18: Executors, his son Mathias and Daniel. In the Will Index his name is spelled Daniel Dottero. He married Barbara Muthart (born June 28, 1763, died Dec. 3, 1843) and their children were: Mathias, John, Daniel (1792-1840), Jacob, George, Henry (who was given the tract of land in Rockland township), Susanna, Catharine and Margaret (whose will, made Dec. 5, 1865 was recorded Dec. 10, 1866).


(IV) Mathias Dotterer, son of Daniel, was born in 1787. He engaged in farming in Washington township, where he owned a 114-acre tract, now in the property of M. G. Gerhard. His death occurred in 1871, and he was buried at Hill Church. He was twice married. His first wife, Catharine Muthart, born Dec. 21, 1799, died Aug. 23, 1834. Mr. Dotterer married (second) Catharine Herb. He was the father of fourteen children: Isaac, David, Jonathan, Aaron, George, Joseph, Israel (had three children), John, Mathias, Abraham, Henry (1825-1856), William, (1825-1903), Anna (m. Edward Anthony, of Dale, Pa.) and Catharine (m. William Schoenly, of Boyertown).


(V) David Dotterer, son of Mathias, was born in Washington township in 1823. He was early trained to farming and followed that calling as long as he was engaged in active labor. He received his education in the pay schools taught by German teachers, and he can give interesting accounts of his early experiences. He taught school at Weikel's Hill, the school being held in a spring house. He owned two farms in Washington township, one of sixty-five acres and one of forty. He is now making his home with his son James near Heydt's schoolhouse. He married Magdalena Heydt, daughter of John and Magdalena (Weller) Heydt. She died in 1896. Their children were: James, who lives in Washington township; Mathias H.; John, on a farm near Sassamansville; and Manasses, who died in 1905 at the age of thirty-five.


(VI) Mathias H. Dotterer, son of David, was reared upon the home farm, and educated in the public schools and the Keystone State Normal School. At the age of eighteen years, he began clerking in the store at Hill Church, for John Dotterer, and later he clerked for J. P. Geschwindt, in Longswamp township, and after that he was employed in a similar capacity by William F. Seidel, at Bowers Station. In 1885 he entered the mercantile business for himself, at Bechtelsville, where he conducted a general store for twenty years. He was very successful, and the people of the town showed him high esteem. He was one of the organizers of the borough of Bechtelsville, and was its first justice of the peace. He also served as school director for three terms. He was elected treasurer of the borough many terms, and upon his removal from the borough resigned. In April, 1906, he sold out his stock, good will and fixtures to William R. Yerger, of Friedensburg, (who later sold to William A. Henry), and that spring moved to Reading, where enjoyed a rest until the following October, when he opened a grocery store at No. 400 South Fifteenth street, his present location. He carries a fine line of groceries and fresh vegetables, and his stand is justly popular.

    In politics, Mr. Dotterer is a Democrat. On Nov. 29, 1884, he married Torinda Gerhard, daughter of Daniel and Eliza (Angstadt) Gerhard, of Longswamp township, and they have four children: Winfield S., a bookkeeper at Reading; Raymond A., clerking for his father; and Lloyd J. and Viola M.

From YNL51- “The building pictured in the April 2007 YNL is located in Evendale, Juniata County, Pa. It was a general store built in 1874. It was built in anticipation of being a hotel for a railroad that was planned to go through this valley. The railroad never materialized but the store apparently operated at least through 1968. It is a bit run down  and now contains apartments. A book called The Celebration gives the names of the proprietors. One of these was John H. Yoder. Following him, John’s daughter Mary and son-in-law Banks W. Nace ran the store.

        John H Yoder was the son of Moses and Eliza Yoder (see the gravestone photo elsewhere in this issue). He was born in Lewisburg, Union County, Pa. At a young age he moved to Liverpool, Perry County, Pa. He tried farming for a while  and then moved to Evendale where he purchased the General Merchandise Store. While operating this store he was also the postmaster from 1900 to its closing in 1912.

        John married Sarah E. Rowe on Jun. 2, 1878. They had three children: Bessie (died at a young age); Fred R. and Mary J. John died in Liverpool on Feb. 17, 1932. He was survived by his two children and grandchildren Dr. Donald Yoder, Dr. Howard Yoder, and Geneva Nace.---Ron Yoder, Thompsontown, Pa.

Chris;  Thank you for your very prompt response, however before we get our

hopes too high, I submit that Yost & wf Christine (Ref Dryland Records) may

not be the Jost that I am looking for ( I have been thru the route of Dryland



Working backwards in time I submit the following (my comments in Para.).

(many entries, have copies of pages).

10. Warrant Register: NortCo Y-23 Jost YEOTTER  65a Moore Twp dated 9 Nov

1785. Not returned & patented until 1826.

     The above data suggests to me that my JOST JOTTER was probably b. abt

1735-45. Known dau. Anna Maria b. 1765. The Dryland Jost is not supported by

the above.

     The Iost Iotter & wf Eva Catrine m. Lebanon 1756 from the Stoever

Records may be the person I'm looking for. Surprisingly however, the only

surname similarity in Leba/Daup/Lanc deed records is the Peter Yetter/Yeter

who does not have a family resembling that which I am looking for.

(Data from: Bob Oct.98)

My husband, Bob, and I contacted you

regarding your inquiry on John F. Yoder.  We are in California, and are researching a

gold mining area called Iowa Hill, which is in Placer County.  It is located about 50

miles from Sacramento, in the foothills.  We only have a small amount of information

on John:


Placer County Republican, 10/28/1885: Real estate transaction:  J. F. Yoder to B. S.

Buckman 1/2 interest in the Alta Quartz Mine. Canada Hill District, $2000.00


In the same paper: " Yoder and Buckman in town (Auburn) from the meadows. Good

progress in their mine.  Shaft down 65 feet, tunnel 360 ft.  300 tons of quartz on the dump. the ledge is 28 inches wide at bottom of shaft."


In 1887 and 1888 he appears as a member of the Masonic Lodge in Iowa Hill, the Ionic Lodge #121.  He still shows up in 1893 and 1894 as a member, and officer of that lodge. 


1900 Census from Iowa HIll:  John Yoder, head of household. white, male, born

12/1834, Missouri, Single, Father and mother both from South Carolina, Occupation: goldminer.


1900 index of Iowa Hill, John Franklin Yoder, age 66

1902 index of Iowa Hill, John Franklin Yoder, age 67.

1910  "    "      "       , age 74, single, miner...his name shows up through the 1920



From California death record index, Calif. State Library: Yoder, John, died 2/20/21,

age 95 (sic), State file number 7091.  Died Placer County.


Note from Balmain's:-Nov. 2000

"I checked at the County Archives today, and couldn't find Enoch Yoder yet,

at least on the assessments.  If I find anything, I'll let you know.  Bob

thinks he may have seen his name in the Gleeson Diarys that we transcribed

covering 1882, and 1886 thur 1888.  I'll try to check there as I have time.

I found John in the assessment for 1885 and 1886.  He is being assessed for

the Quartz mining claim.  It is near Ralston Dam at the lower iend of wat is

known as the Meadows on the middlefork of the middle fork of the American

River called Alta, also 1 watch $50. 1 graded horse $75.  1885 states it is

at French Meadows.  This is about 30 miles out of Forest Hill, and is now a

popular camping and fishing lake.  in 1885 he halso had a colt value $30.

John doesn't appear in the 87  or 89 assessments.  perhaps that was when he

was working for the Iowa Hill Canal Company. "

Yoder DNA Project test result on Jan. 21, 2009 confirms the line below shares a common ancestor with the Steiffisburg Joders. A connection to a German Yeater line therefore becomes suspect. A “new unlinked Yoder” line is confirmed. It’s possible there has been some confusion with the Andrew Yeater in Greene Co, Pa. (code “U” in the first unlinked Yoder file) (some sources show him to be one of the sons of Johannes Yetter-Anna Margaret Korst line- see T. Vernon Anderson data which says Johannes Yeater1,2 was born on April 1, 1724 in Stuttgart, Wertburg, Germany. Immigarted on the Restoration, and died in June 1805 in Derry Twp, Mifflin Co, PA.). Data by Lycoming County researcher Harold Bower on Rootsweb also refers to the Johannes Jacob- Andrew- Andrew Lycoming county lineage.

          Letter by Albert Jotter. Madison Neb. Jan 25 1970

          Dear sis Jody got your letter the other day and today is Sunday a long

          day so I'll drop you a line . Jeane did a good job looking up our dads

          back ground I new most of the deal about the deaths and our mother

          being buried in the M E Church , Father Blair was was the Priest there

          at that time and when we came there the church was locked . Thats why

            I did not go to no Catholic Church. I never did forget that deal I

            also remember Effie Randall and her Dad ,

          he was the carpenter at the Fort. Effie married Andrew Jelly.

          I was there that night I saw what happened, they had a hearing at the

          officers Headquarters and they called it an accident but it did not                 

          look like

          an accident to me.The gun was hanging on the wall and we were sitting.

          Helen , Mrs Blyle and Mother and me were on an army cot and Effie got

          up behind us and got the gun out of the holster and it went off.

          Why did she take the gun out of the holster at all we Had not been


          15 Min till it happened , the gun was hanging on the wall in the


          there was something fishy about that and after things settled down she

          would ride past our place with a gun strapped on .

          Yes our folks had quite a lot of money I heard that from a Banker by               

          the name of Sparks , our mother did her business with him. The Swartz

            family and Max Pertel got most of our money.

          I think Jrna knows all about it but he wont say anything .

          Yes I remember John Steffer he was Corral Boss, Ed Sears was harness

          maker and John Ross was the black smith, I also remember that I went to

          a colored teacher I don't know his name. I'll mail the clipping back to you

          in case Jeane wants it.

          Our weather here wonderful now. but it has been cold , but not much

          snow. I was wondering if they would want some pictures . we have here

          at the museum at Valentine when you come over this summer we could

          drive up then and take them along and if they wanted them we could

          leave them there.

          Ruby is not so well , she has trouble sleeping , her legs pain her , I think it

          sis the Nerves in the legs as for Opal I don't know what to think about

          that girl she spends money right and left but she has it so what , let her

          spent it its is not any of my business she is old enough to run her own

          business. Opal and Ruby don't get along at all, Ruby tries to tell her what

          to do and that don't work , Ruby is like her mother she wants every body

          to do like she wants them to do. ruby has quite a temper she don't stop to

          think she just says what she thinks and that is no good I am feeling fine

          but I am sore. get it will take a little time I'll be fine by the time spring

          comes and fishing time comes I could tell a lot about Fort Niobrara. I

          remember a lot of things those and also the names of people there that

          used to be there . Well so long for now and take care.

          I remain Your Brother Albert Jotter
