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.)

Well-known ice man of this city, died on Monday evening last. Mr. Yoder
Has been extensively engaged in the ice business for some time past, and his sudden demise was probably the result of overworking in the ice house."

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.

DOTTERER, MATHIAS H., p. 1195 Surnames:
DOTTERER, DOTTERO, TODDEROW, IMBODY, MUTHART, HERB, GERHARD, ANTHONY, SCHOENLY, HEYDT, WELLER, GESCHWINDT, SEIDEL, YERGER, HENRY, ANGSTADTMathias 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.

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.BZ- Jost Jotter

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. "

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 JotterJohn F Jotter probably came to the Mohawk Valley Columbia co. NY
between 1860 and 1870.
His birth information came from a Petition to join the IOOF lodge in
Valentine Nebraska . On the petition it lists his birth Dec. 30th 1865 in
Columbia Co. NY and occupation Teamster. The record shows that he
took the first degree on March 10 1903 and the 2nd degree on April 7
1903 . Hes passed away on April 26 1903 so did not take the Master
Masons Degree. Only Master Masons are entitled to have a Masonic
funeral so of course he did not have this.
Information from a letter from A P Starkjohann, Sec. Minnekadusa
Lodge No. 192 AF and AMFort Niobrara Nebraska
Fort Niobrara was established in 1880 as the military post for the
Rosebud Reservation in Dakota. This reservation was constituted in 1870
for Chief Spotted Tails band of Brule Sioux, and, in the summer of that
year the Indians began moving from the old Spotted Tail Agency on
White Clay Creek to the new location about hundred miles east. camp
Sheridan, which had been the military post for the Spotted Tail agency,
was abandoned and much of its equipment and supplied brought to the
An official army order dated April 22 1880 provided for the
establishment of a military post for the new reservation. this location
chosen was a point on the Niobrara River in Cherry Co. about four miles
east and north of the present town of Valentine. The post was named
Forst Niobrara and the first officer in charge was Major John J Uphan of
the Fifth US cavalry and Company B of the Ninth infantry accompanied
him to aid in establishment of the Fort.
The first buildings were of adobe brick a suitable clay for which was
bound nearby. Later, frame structures were erected and the fort enlarged
to provide quarters for a regiment. The military reserve too, was
increased to provide quarters for a regiments. The military reserve too ,
was increased until it comprised fifty four sections of land. The plan of the
Fort followed the same general pattern of the other frontier post, in the
arrangement of its buildings around a rectangular parade ground.
A visitor to Fort Niobrara in 1884, fours years after its founding, wrote
that the post was "Like a Plesant little village of nicely built houses, most
of them of adobe brick and arranged on three sides of a square. The
officers homes on the south side, all cottage houses, but large and
handsomely built. On the east are Public buildings, chapel, library, lecture
room and entertainment hall. Along the north are the soldiers quarters and
in the rear are various utility buildings and the stables , one for the gray
and another for the sorrel horses about one hundred of each, and also
about seventy mules.
In the early days of Fort Niobrara the surrounding territory was not yet
settled and the garrison found it a lonely spot. For the first year mail and
supplies were brought by ox team freighting wagons. from Neligh,
Nebraska at that time the end of the line of the Fremont, Elkhorn, and
Missouri Valley railroad and the closest rail point. By 1882, however, the
road reached Thatcher only a few miles away and the following year
came to Valentine.,
This ended the supply problem except for local hauling from Valentine to
the Fort.
To the Eary settlers of the county the military post proved a tremendously
helpful asset. Here they found a ready market for grain, hay and cord
wood, as well as for meat, dairy and poultry products. wives of settlers
too, helped out the family budget by doing laundry for the troops. And,
probably more important than these direct benefits was the Sence of
security which the presence of the soldiers gave, and the knowledge that
the fort would be a place of refuge in the event of and Indian outbreak
from the Rosebud Reservation over the Dakota line to the north. But
there was no trouble with the Brule Sioux. However, after the turbulent
plans wars of the 1860's and 1870's civilians and soldiers were
understandably nervous and Indian scares based on unfounded rumors
cropped up occasionally. It was reported that more than once the soldiers
at Fort Niobrara had kept their horses saddled for days at a time ready to
repel and attack that never materialized. Not until the winter of 1890-91
was there real trouble anywhere in the Indian country.
Glimpses of social life at the fort are Given in her book, Vanished
Arizona, by Martha Summerhays, wife of First Lt. John Summerhays of
Eight Infantry who was stationed there in 1887-88. Experiences with
bitter cold weather are detailed together with reminiscences of the
brighter side, as for example, she wrote, We could not complain of our
fare, however, for our larder hung full of all sorts of delicate and delicious
things brought in by the farmers, which we were glad to buy. Parrie
chickens, young pigs, venison and ducks, all hanging to be used as
And again: We had an excellent amusment hall with a fine floor for
dancing. The chapel was at one end and a fairly good stage at the other.
We had a good string orchestra of twenty or more pieces and a series of
weekly dances were inaugurated.
Musicales and theatricals were also given by talent recruited among the
personnel of the post. Admission was charged to raise funds to by
scenery and other supplies for the productions and the neighboring
frontier towns of Valentine came riding and driving over the Parrie and
across the old bridge of the Niobrara River, to see the plays.
Fort Niobrara, because of its remote location, had few noted visitors
from outside. As at all army posts the garrison underwent many changes
in both officers and enlisted men. As a young lieutenant John J Pershing
was stationed there for a short time in 1891 following the Wounded Knee
Massacre. Another young lieutenant at the post on the Niobrara was John
M. Stotsenburg who served as colonel of the First Nebraska Regiment in
Spanish American War and was killed in action during the Philippine
In 1890 the last great Indian scare came to Northern Nebraska. Through
the exciting years events built up reaching a climax in the so called Battle
of Wounded Knee. The Sioux on the great Pine Ridge Reservation
dissatisfied and hopeless, robbed of adequate rations by unscrupulous or
incompetent agents and greedy contractors, turned in desperation to a
new fanatical ritualistic religion. This was the Gost Dance- Messiah craze.
Of the total Indian population at Pine Ridge only a comparatively small
number participated. But the timid agent became alarmed and asked for
military protection, intimating that the Indians were out of control.
When this word came, the alarm spread like a Parrie fire among the
scattered settlers on the North Nebraska frontier. The Military posts
were alerted and supplied and reinforcements were rushed to them and
preparations made for any eventuality. Fort Niobrara became one of the
principal points of supply and troops from the post were ordered to the
Then, on Dec 29 on Wounded Knee Creek, 1890, during the process of
disarming Chief Big Foots band, which comprised the bulk of the Ghost
Dancers, a shot was fired at the soldiers, troops of the Seventh Cavalry,
and the fight was on. Partially disarmed the Indians had no chance and the
engagement became a massacre in which men, women and children were
indiscriminately shot down while fleeing up the ravines seeking safety.
Following the Wounded knee affair rumors spread that the whole Sioux
nation might rise in revolt. The Nebraska National Guard was called out
and sent to various points along the Dakota border, and additional federal
Toups sent in. But beyond a few minor skirmishes there was no further
Gen. Nelson A Miles was put in charge of the whole operation and under
his direction the situation gradually calmed down.
After the excitement was over, Fort Niobrara returned to its usual peace
time routine until abandonment in Oct of 1906. With the opening of the
Rosebud to settlers it was felt that the need for a post at that location was
no longer in existence. A 16,000 acre tract of Military reservation was
retained for a national game preserve and the rest thrown open for
settlement. A small Museum and office bui8ldings of the game reserve are
maintained on the site of the old post and small herds of buffalo, elk, deer
and antelope roam over the terrain where cavalry horses once held sway.
