Melchior Yoder family updates by Emily Coffman Richardson beginning in Aug. 2023. As Emily takes over the role of “Melchior Yoder Line coordinator” from Don and Grace Honeywell, she has already expanded on many of the lines, and will continue to do so as new information is revealed. In some cases as she discovers new children in some families, the subsequent “M-“ numbers may change from that displayed in the Honeywell data.

M1- John Yoder
M2- Jacob Yoders
M3- Benjamin Yoder
M4- Henry Yoder
M5- Melchior Yoder Jr.
M6- John Peter Yoder
M7- Catherine Yoder Leist

Ellis Island Yoders, extracted 2004. This page seems to be 'orphaned' - probably is more than the non- Amish families but linked here anyway.
