I believe really strongly that Conrad Yoder came from Oley, or at least was
living in Oley with a relative. Conrad Yoder, Michael Whitener, and Henry
Whitener all came from Oley Twp., Berks County together. The only land
Henry WEidner ever sold was to Conrad and Michael. He sold them the VERY
VALUABLE water rights. Contrary to legend, original papers show that Henry
sold the water rights to Conrad and to Michael FOR THE SAME AMOUNT OF
MONEY. There is some ridiculous story that Henry charged Michael more
than Conrad.--- Anne McAllister, author "Georg Heinrich Weidner 1717-1792;
Catharina Mull Weidner 1733-1804"

A Yoder sister? > From: "Bob Kastens" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I have Hans Jacob Hoffman (b. 1716, Germany), m. 1st, 1745, to Catherina Best &
m. 2nd, 1770, to Catherina Yoder. He died in Gaston Co, NC. I don't have any info
on Ms. Yoder. Can you help? Bob
There was a Hoffman family book by Max Hoffman, revised by
Hoffman with details on the Hoffman family. But they have nothing on
Catherina Yoder. I am trying to find where I got this info. Hans Jacob Hoffman
was born in Palatinate of Germany in 1716. Sailed from
> Rotterdam, Holland, on the British ship Pennsylvania Packet & arrived in
Philadelphia on October 3, 1768. Settled in Berks Co, PA. Later moved to the
Shenandoah Valley, VA. Settled on land on the South Fork River valley in
what is now Gaston Co, NC. Married, 1745, Catherina Best, in Palatinate of

Francis M and Armilda are my great-great grandparents. James Marion was born
in Iowa 10 Sept, 1858. (although his obituary states his father was J.F.
Yoder, more later). Armilda died, and F.M. married Sophie. In 1885 census
they were in Shell City, Minnesota, where they bought ownership of the town.
They owned several businesses there, including the Yoder Haus hotel.
Wonderful site!!! My sister has been doing family research on the Yoder
side, and sent info that my dad sent me, so she really gets the credit.
My great-grandfather, James Marion Yoder, son of Francis Marion Yoder,
is the one who took the picture of Miss Edna Yoder in Shell city, MN, in 1884.
Shell city was founded in part by francis M. Yoder. James M. Yoder married
Margaret Etta Doran in Shell City in Aug 1882. The Yoders then moved to
Menahga, then to Fargo, North Dakota in 1886. We never knew where our
great-grandparents came from (after Iowa), until a few years ago when our
father, Donald Yoder was looking at property less than 5 miles from the
original Shell City site, and was asked by the Wadena County Historical
society if he was related to the Yoders who founded Shell City!!!!
The county owns the property of shell city now, and there are signs locating
all of the original buildings, such as the Yoder House hotel, school, etc.
For more info, please contact my sister, who has done all of the research,
and needs the credit--Nancy Yoder email--Cats Paw@aol.com

Margaret Etta Doran, (Maggie, born 27 Sept, 1866), daughter of John and Mary
Doran from Ontario (formerly of Ireland).Their wedding was 30 Aug, 1882. The
town died, because the railroad did not come into Shell City. The Yoder's
and Dorans moved on to Fargo, Dakota Territory on Feb 26, 1886. North Dakota

Con297 - Thomas J YODER
born 8 Oct 1854, Brown County, Indiana
marr 26 Mar 1883, Cerro Gordo Country, Iowa
died 15 Jan 1944, Puyallup, Washington
spouse - Rose L HANSEN
born Dec 1862, (Racine County?), Wisconsin
I believe that Thomas J Yoder was still in Brown County, Indiana,
at the time of the 1880 census, but that there were Yoders
already living in Floyd County, Iowa, by that time, notably, I
reckon, offspring of Henry Yoder (Con23) and Ruth Ann Radler or
Rader, both of whom had died in Floyd County before 1880. Their
son Francis Marion (Con232) was reported in Floyd County in the
1880 census, along with some children. Floyd County is the next
county east of Cerro Gordo County in the north central part of
the state. (It is named after a then-famous victory, of 1847, in
the Mexican war. The first white people settled there in 1851. It
also gave us the word 'tractor,' when, in 1902, the sales manager
of the Hart Parr Factory in Charles City decided that 'gasoline
traction engine' was just too damned long to attract customers.)
I believe Thomas was looking around for a situation where he
could take up farming and he may well have been visiting or
working for relatives in Floyd County when he met Rose Hansen,
who was living just over the county line in Rock Falls.
Soon after Thomas J and Rose married they went to Minnesota,
because their first child, Edna Verena (my grandmother), was born
in Shell River Township, Wadena County, in Minnesota on 25 August
1884, less than two years after the marriage, and I have her
birth certificate and a photograph of the house in which they
were living. I believe they went there because there were other
Yoders living there, on evidence of a note on the back of the
photo which reads 'Miss. Edna Yoder / The house where she was
born in 1884. / Rode view taken by J.M. Yoder / Shell City Minn /
July 3d- 1898.'
Who was that? I notice from the genealogy that one of the Iowa
Yoders was James M Yoder, born around 1859 in Iowa (Con2322). He
would have been three years younger than my great grandfather
(and one generation removed). Just a guess.
My Yoders seem, however, not to have stayed long in Minnesota.
Thomas took up a double homesteading claim near Pierre, South
Dakota (in Sully County?), one for farming and one for forestry.
He had to give the forestry claim up, but he worked the farming
claim for about thirty years.
When Edna Verena married Roy Dorothy in 1906, the newlyweds went
to Concunully, Washington, to raise apples. Some time thereafter,
Edna's younger brother, Ralph, somehow managed to set fire to the
barn and destroyed all the winter feed for the livestock on the
homestead. All the animals died that winter, and Thomas sold up.
The remaining family (possibly excepting daughter Jesse) moved to
Washington, partly because Edna and her husband were living
there, and partly because Rose's father had left her a house in
Tacoma. He is supposed to have been named Ole Hansen, and family
legend has him confused with the famous Mayor of Seattle by that
name, but, if that Hansen is related at all (which I doubt), he
would have had to be Rose's brother, not father. I have a
startlingly well made photograph of all the Yoders in a photo
studio in Puyallup, Washington, in 1915 or 1916. I would never
have been able to figure out the date of this photo if my
grandmother had not noted that Mazel was thirteen, as both my
grandmother and her sister Jesse look like teenagers, although
even Jesse must have been thirty. She may well have been visiting
Puyallup from Texas at the time.
In any case, the Yoders settled in Puyallup, bought a 'fifteen-
cent store,' and lived there until around the end of world war
Con2971 - Edna Verena YODER
born 25 Aug 1884, Shell River Township, Wadena County,
marr 18 May 1905, Kaspar, South Dakota
died 23 Dec 1980, Tustin, Orange County, California
spouse - Roy DOROTHY-12 (1882-1947)
Edna grew up on the Yoder homestead near Pierre, South Dakota,
and recalled seeing pioneers in covered wagons, the Ghost Dance
rising of the Sioux Indians, and the great plains blizzards that
destroyed the cattle industry in the 1890s. She attended a one-
room school until she was sixteen, at which point she became the
teacher. A handwritten resume she prepared in order to apply for
a civil service job in California, reveals that she spent eight
years in South Dakota Public Schools doing 'grammar school
subjects' until November 1899, and another few months, from April
to November of 1900 doing 'high school subjects.' In 1901, from
January to June, she attended high school in Gettysburg, South
She then had two stints of school teaching, one from November
1901 to May 1902 in Sully County, at '25 or 27.50' and another
from October 1902 to April 1903 at '27.50 to 30.' I gather those
figures are dollars/month. The fact that these jobs were in Sully
County leads me to believe that the family homestead was located
in that county too.
Family legend has it that people in the neighborhood took up a
collection to send her to school to learn how to be a proper
teacher, and in 1903 she went to Mankato, Minnesota, where she
saw her first automobile - there were two in the town at the
time. I'm not sure what happened with the education as a teacher,
since she in fact took a course in stenography from April to
October 1903 (and she used it all her life - I have shorthand
notes she took of telephone calls received when she was in her
For about seven months she worked halftime, at three dollars a
week, for two different businesses in Gettysburg, until August
1904, when she went to work for the National Bank of Commerce
in Pierre, where she roomed with the family of one of her
coworkers, the Dorothys.
The Dorothys had come up to Pierre around 1895 from Ute, a tiny
town in Monona County on the western border of Iowa, and E F
Dorothy operated several grocery stores and traded in cattle.
They seem to have been fairly well to do as Prairie families
went. Roy worked in the bank on the theory that there were only
two good ways for a young man to get ahead, by going to a
university or working in a bank, and university was not a
possibility. E F gave his son a horse and buggy, and Roy soon
began to drive the family's roomer to church in it, to the
chagrin of Roy's sister, Blanche, who felt she deserved the seat.
Roy and Edna may have eloped to marry in Kaspar, South Dakota, a
town where neither had family or other connections that I know
of. Their wedding announcement is an after-the-fact one, and it
notes that after the wedding the couple would be 'at home' in
In the early twenties they moved to California, settled in
Sacramento, and both worked for the State government until they
retired. Both were highly placed civil servants. Roy was an
accountant for the Board of Equalization (tax office) and Edna
worked for any number of different boards and agencies. They had
three children, Don Vincent Dorothy, Thelma Ruth Dorothy (my
mother), and Carol Agnes Dorothy.
Con2972 - Jessica 'Jesse' YODER
born 1885, probably in or near Pierre, South Dakota
I don't know much about Jesse except that she married twice and
lived in Austin, Texas. She had two children by her first
husband, Patricia Breedlove and Philip Breedlove, and two by her
second, Robert Eastman and Margaret Eastman.
Con2973 - Evelyn YODER
I'm not sure of her dates of birth or death, but she died as a
very small child of diphtheria.
Con2974 - Ralph YODER
born 1888, probably in or near Pierre, South Dakota
Ralph, after burning down the homestead barn, moved with his
parents to Puyallup, Washington. During world war two he was
living and working in Tacoma, Washington. He married someone
named 'Lil,' and they had at least two children. One of them was
named Glenna Dee and she married Robert J St Clair on 6 November
of an indeterminate year.
Con2975 - Mazel YODER
born 1902, probably in or near Pierre, South Dakota
Mazel also moved with her parents to Washington and was still
living there, in Seattle, in the seventies. She married Arthur C
'Butch' SONNTAG and had two children, Stanley SONNTAG in 1925,
and Virginia SONNTAG in 1930. The last known address I had for
her is 3703 Densmore Avenue, Seattle 3. A postcard from her to my
grandmother reveals that Butch 'will be 80' on July 8, and I
_think_ the postmark reads 1978.
I have learned a few things and sharpened my information since the material I sent
to you the other day. The main thing is that I figured out the location of the
Thomas J Yoder homestead - it was at Kaspar, in Sully County, South Dakota.
Kaspar itself no longer exists, it has been folded into the town of Onida, but this is
a more exact location that 'near Pierre.'
By speaking with my Aunt Carol, I have been able to clean up the information on
the family as well. It should read like this:
HUSBAND Thomas J YODER (Con297)
BORN: 8 Oct 1854 PLACE: ,Brown,Indiana,USA
DIED: 16 Jan 1944 PLACE: Puyallup,,Washington,USA
MARR: 26 Mar 1883 PLACE: ,Cerro Gordo,Iowa,USA
WIFE Rose L HANSEN
BORN: Dec 1862 PLACE: ,Racine,Wisconsin,USA
DIED: 1944 PLACE: Puyallup,,Washington,USA
One my grandmother's birth certificate the place of birth is given as Wisconsin. I
am guessing at the Racine County, on foot of the family legend that has her related
to Ole Hansen, the Mayor of Seattle, who was born in Racine County. I'm
guessing at her date of death. The last letter in her hand is dated February 1944.
Edna Verena YODER (Con2971)
BORN: 25 Aug 1884 PLACE: Shell River Twnp,Wadena, Minnesota,USA
DIED: 23 Dec 1980 PLACE: Tustin,Orange,California,USA
SPOUSE: Roy DOROTHY
MARR: 18 May 1905 PLACE: Kaspar,Sully,South Dakota,USA
Jessica 'Jesse' YODER (Con2972)
BORN: 31 Jan 1886 PLACE: Kaspar,Sully,South Dakota,USA
SPOUSE 1: EASTMAN
SPOUSE 2: BREEDLOVE
Lived in Austin TX.
Ralph YODER (Con2973)
BORN: 1888 PLACE: Kaspar,Sully,South Dakota,USA Lived in
Tacoma WA. During the war was driving a truck for the Model Bakery. His wife's
first name was Lil and he had at least one daughter named Glenna Dee, who
married Robert J Sinclair at the Trinity Lutheran Chapel in Parkland WA.
Lily YODER (Con2974)
BORN: 1890 PLACE: Kaspar,Sully,South Dakota,USA
DIED: 1902 PLACE: Kaspar,Sully,South Dakota,USA
This child died of diphtheria at the age of twelve.
Mazel YODER (Con2975)
BORN: 7 Oct 1902 PLACE: Kaspar,Sully,South Dakota,USA
SPOUSE: Arthur C 'Butch' SONNTAG
Lived in Seattle WA.
In your document with the filename CONRAD.DOC, Nora Springs,
Iowa, is in
many places correctly spelled, but in quite a few others it is spelled 'Nona' Springs.
The latter does not exist. Nora Springs is right on the Cerro Gordo/Floyd County
line, which probably explains why Thomas J Yoder met and married Rose Hansen
there. Rock Falls is within walking distance of Nora Springs.
Did I already tell you why I think Thomas J Yoder and his bride detoured to
Minnesota long enough for her mother, Edna V Yoder, to be born in Shell River
Township? I looked again at a small photograph I have of the house where she
was born, a 9 cm x 9 cm sepia photo mounted on a somewhat larger card with the
stamp of a photo studio in Fargo ND on it. Someone wrote on the back, 'Rode [sic]
view taken by J.M.Yoder / Shell City Minn / July 3d- 1895.'
That's eleven years after my grandmother was born and long after her family had
moved to South Dakota. Thomas J had an older brother named James M Yoder
(Con291), but he lived and died in Brown County, Indiana. A more likely
candidate would seem to be another James M Yoder (Con2322) among the Iowa
Yoders. Although he was of a different generation, this James was only a few
years younger than Thomas J. I notice that the genealogy has no further
information on James - that may be because he settled in Wadena County,
Minnesota.---- Regards, Fred Haines (submitted Jun. 1996)

(" ...the only thing new I have to add is that I found "Dolphin" Yoder in
the 1830 census for Washington County MO. I am sure it is the same
as Adolphus because he was in Washington County MO in 1840 and 1860,
and Julia was there in 1850. The listing for Dolphin Yoder lists a male and
a female of the right age, which is consistent with what we know, since
their oldest child was not born until 1830 or later... There is also a Yoder
listed in Washington County MO Marriages 1815-1844, Reel C6834
Recorder of Deeds, Title Maqrriages, Vol. A, 1815-1844-Y. I think this
must be Adolphus and Julia. His second marriage didn't take place
until 1849. However, I have not yet had the opportunity to order the
microfilm, and the index only lists surnames." Tilitha Waicekauskas
email@example.com- Nov. 2000)(suddenly information about Adolphus
Yoder is just falling all around me! I put a query on the Washington Co.
MO message board, which was promptly answered by William Baker, who
put me in touch with Preston Gilliam, a descendant of Adolphus Yoder's
third wife by her first husband. He had a lot of information and pictures
of the cabin Adolphus Yoder built in Yoder Holler. He said it is still being
lived in by one of Sarah Gilliam Yoder's descendants, and still does not
have plumbing or electricity. Adolphus must have done a good job, because
the cabin still looks very sturdy. Preston says that Sarah and her husband
lived on an adjoining farm to Adolphus, and that a couple of years after her
husband died, Sarah had a baby, and the parentage has never been disclosed,
although they feel sure it was Adolphus Yoder's baby. He married her a
year or two after that and they combined their farms and built the cabin.
Adolphus was a miner as well as a farmer. That makes sense because they
lived in the lead belt. I believe there is, or was, iron in that area also.

>From "Massac County, Illinois Marriages, Vol. II, 1878 - 1890," compiled
by Carolyn Cromeencs Foss and Judy Foreman Lee, 1992, the following record"
>Rufust M. Yoder, age 24, farmer, married Martha J. Bonifield, age 22,
March 8, 1881, in Massac County. Parents of groom: Pink Yoder and
Mary Ann Gaby Parents of bride: William Bonifield and Sarah V. Bailey
>From "Massac County, Illinois, Marriages from miscellaneous sources,
1858-1903," by Massac County Genealogical Society, 1998, the following
Rufus M. Yoder, age 26, married Lacy Hall, September 4, 1882, in Massac
County. Benj. J. Delavan, JP.
Rufus M. Yoder, age 31, farmer, married Rebecca Ann Hall Henley, age 39,
January 27, 1886, in Massac County. Parents of groom: Pink Yoder and
Mary A. Gaby. Parents of bride: Harvey Hall and Margaret Cunnel.
(Rebecca A. Hall was previously married to Benjamin F. Henley. By that
marriage, there was at least one child, a daughter named Trisa C.
Henley. According to "Massac County Marriages, Vol. 3, 1890 - 1895," a
W. A. Winningham, age 24, farmer, married Trisa C. Henley, age 19, on
February 18, 1890, at Rufus Yoder's home. Trisa's father was Benjamin
F. Henley and mother was Rebecca Ann Hall. Obviously, the two
Winningham children listed in the 1900 Massac County census as Rufus's
grandson and granddaughter were the children of W. A. Winningham and
Trisa C. Henley, Rebecca's daughter.)
I also found another reference to Rufus. His name appears in a booklet
entitled, "1857-1987 Index - Members and Visitors, Massac County Masonic
232 - History Brookport-on-Ohio, Illinois 62910," by Willard A. Kerr.
It only indicates dates that he must have been a member, petition for
membership May 1, 1909; and apparently a MM (Master Mason) on March 19,
