PART TWO...

From: Dwane Yoder <dwaneyoder@sprintmail.com>

Chris:
In reference to cemeteries where Yoders are buried in Somerset Co. Pa.
I noticed that a cemetery was missing from the exhaustive list given.
That cemetery is the St. James Lutheran Church grave yard --now without
a church building--located in Jenner Township, off route 601 between
Boswell and Jerome in Somerset County. My grandparents are buried there
along with 2 children. The names of the Yoders of my family are :
Father, Joseph 1878-1943, Mother: Gwertrude Grace (Sowerbrower)
1885-1964; Infant son--(no name) of above parents 1927-1927 and
Daughter Bessie V. (1909-1925).

Other Yoders are not relatives of the above. Further identification as
to family source may be possible through the good offices of Jerry Yoder
who comes from the same area in Conemaugh Township, Somersety Co. where
these names come from. They are:

Vernon W. Yoder 1913-1948--He is from the Hyasota Yoders--Truman, John
etcl who lived on route 601 at the railroad trtacks in Hyasota. Other
family member names escape me.

John E. Yoder 1906-1972 married to Ethel Griffith, born 1911--death
date not on stone. Jerry might know of the "Soap Hollow" Yoders. John
was of this group

As of this date 30 Nov. 1998 there are no other Yoders buried at this
cemetery. respectfully, Dwane Yoder


From: "William Yoder" <bill.yoder@york.com>
Subject: Yoder Burial
Date: Fri, 26 Mar 2004 16:23:37 -0500

I'm William L Yoder, age 46, Waynesboro Pa. My family came from Somerset
Co., Stony Creek Township. My Great Grand Father was Jonas Yoder, 1840-1917
(YR2395b) buried at Payman. I would like to add another cemetery to the
list when Yoders are buried. Most of my father's ( William Jonas Yoder )
1914 -1984, family are buried in Mizpah Cemetery in Somerset Co. I believe
the cemetery was part of the old Will's Church. My grandparents, parents,
three uncles, three aunts, etc. I'm sorry but I do not have the address at
this time.

Sincerely,
William ( Bill) Lynn Yoder
