Jun 27, 1880- found murdered in her cellar by her husband Wolfgang Hoffman, who claimed she had committed suicide and gave the allarm. The coroners jury found that she came to her death , by someone unknown to them, crushing her skull with her husband's hammer that was found splattered with blood. Her husband was tried for the murder, but was not convicted. There was a general belief that the motive for the murder was the considerable sum of money she had inherited from her father, which he had frequently asked to be given to him, but was refused. She had no children, but he had children from a former marriage. Her husband d. a few years later. Taken from Yoder history.")

data from Kaye Strause--8/1/99:
William John Yoder as remembered by Naomi Yoder
Johnson------ William John Yoder, my father, was born in Tremont, Tazewell
County, Illinois, on October 10, 1865 and died April 17, 1951. He married
Maria Schreiber on December 25, 1899. Both he and my mother are buried in
the Christian Apostolic Cemetery in Forrest, Illinois. My mother was born
in Wurtemberg, Germany on September 03, 1864 and died April 28, 1932.
My father was a kind and religious man. He loved all his brothers and
sisters and made many trips to Morton and Tremont, Illinois to visit them.
There were 13 children in our family 3 boys 7 girls and 1 set of twins and
1 baby that was stillborn that I do not know the sex of. I was the ninth
child born, and I am now 82 years old as of May 01, 1985.
Our father started farming on a small acreage farm near Wing, Illinois,
where several of our family was born, then he decided to move to Forrest,
Illinois, and worked with our Uncle, William Schlipf, who had a blacksmith
shop. My folks lived in a small house in the then southern part of
Forrest, where I was born. When I was a baby, Father decided he wanted to farm
again, so he rented a fam one mile south and 1 1/2 miles east of Fairbury,
Illinois, where we lived until I was 12 years old. Then we moved to a
farm in the western part of Illiinois, close to the Mississippi River, near the
small town of Eliza, Illinois, where we lived for 5 years. We were close
to the church. We had to go to New Boston, Illinois, twenty-two miles, with
a horse and buggy. Dad bought a Ford car in 1915. He was afraid to drive,
so as soon as I was old enough, my brother Fred and I took turns going to
church and taking as many as we could pile in. We attended the German
Apostolic Church as long as I can remember, Father always led in the
singing, as there were no organs or pianos in the church, he had a
beautiful voice. Only having an older brother I was always with Dad helping
with the milking, working in the fields and following him where ever he went.
I always liked working with Father, my older sisters helped our mother with
the house work.
Mother loved her garden and flowers and was so proud of them. Mother
died at the age of 68 in their home at Peoria, Illinois. Father lived
with our sister Ruth until he passed away. Dad and Mother moved to Peoria in
December, 1928. My Father always had a beard until the last few years he
lived. He did so enjoy his life, even if we didn't have much money. He
was a wonderful and pleasant person, as were all his sisters, we loved them
>>Chris, I knew all of my grandmothers brothers and sisters and I have all
of the family information about them, their grandchildren, great-grandchildren
and so on. I, also, have pictures of most of them.

A note from James Dee Yoder- Dec.2001
"YR23b446, William John Yoder listed as having 13 children-3b & 7g+twins +
baby (didn_t the twins/baby have a sex?) My mother-in-law had two sets of
twins (&FYI, both sets born Oct 10th 14 yrs. apart), a set of triplets, two
still borns, and nine single live births and we_ve all been able to tell
what sex everybody is/was. (ha ha)"

(A question: Mildred Fern Yoder and Frank Benjamin Smith are my great grandparents. Their daughter, Shirly Mae Smith married Robert Paul Beck (my grandparents.... who are still doing well). According to my grandmother, Jonathan James Yoder and Sarah Etta Haugh are not her biological grandparents. Jonathan and Sarah never even formally adopted Mildred Fern... but they raised her like their own and Mildred Fern took the last name Yoder. -- We have a response from the State of Kansas saying they cannot find the birth certificate for a Milder Fern Yoder. Which isn't surprising considering she wasn't born as a Yoder.-- So basically, my question is who is Mildred Fern? Where is she from? I know Jonathan and Sara Yoder had no biological kids, so how did they raise Mildred?--- Brad Beck, Bradgator2@aol.com )
