but here is what he has:

Con82 George William Yother, Sr. of Union county Georgia was born
May 9, 1809 and died May 6, 1866. He married Elizabeth Abercrumbie in
1833. (Your notes indicate he may have fought in the Civil War. I found a
George Yother listed in the union in the 6th Tennessee Mounted Infantry,
Co. A and I found a George Yother listed in the confederate army with
the 38th NC Infantry, Co. F, I donít know if either one is who we are
looking for.) Elizabeth Abercrumbie was born April 14, 1817 and
died Dec 24, 1880.
Con821 - Wilson Yother born Jan 18, 1835
Con822 - John J. Yother born Feb 12, 1837. Died 1864
The family book says "John fought in the Civil War. At the age of 27
He was missing in action, he was killed in 1864 in the Rossville Gap where
now stands the Iowa Monument. His entire company went to General
Thomas at Chickamauga after a hard fight against Gen. Braggís Army on
Missionary Ridge in Chattanooga." (My grandfather indicates in his notes
that John fought for the union but so far I have not been able to locate a
John Yother fighting for the union. I have only looked in the southern
states though. I did find three John Yothers listed as fighting for the
Confederate side. {10th Missouri Infantry, Co. F/ 19th Tennessee Infantry
Co. F/ and the Cherokee Legion Infantry, State Guard, Co. D} I checked the
roster for the Cherokee Legion Guard and found two Yotherís but they were
the wrong age and I have not discovered rosters for the other units yet.)
Con823 - Mariah Jane Yother was born Dec 6, 1839, died July 18, 1887.
She married Robert Jackson July 10, 1856. Robert died July 28, 1856.
In 1858 Mariah married Isaac Reed. Isaac was born May 9, 1837, died
Oct 6, 1875. They had one daughter, Lizzie Jane Reed (my grandfather's
mother) who was born Jan 23, 1868. in 1877 Mariah married James
Con824 - James Fate Yother was born 1842. He left home and went
(?Yother James D died 06/02/1862 Pvt Co C 5 Tenn Inf 6 2 1862 Bur
Barboursville Ky Plot: F )
Con825 - Adam David Yother was born June 15, 1848
Con826 - George W. Yother, Jr. was born Nov 12, 1849 and died 1914.
He married Bell Clemons in 1880 and they had no children.
Con827 - Sarah Ann Yother was born Feb 28, 1852 and she died 1918.
She married Jess Brown in 1872. Jess was born in 1853 and died in 1907.
They had 5 sons and 2 daughters.
Con828 - (Not mentioned in my grandfatherís record)
Con829 - Mary Yother was born Jan 9, 1861. She married Joe Stringer
in 1885. Joe was born in 1860. They had 3 sons and 2 daughters.

That is all the information in my grandfatherís record book, Iím sorry
there is not more but hopefully this helps to fill in a few little gaps. Like
I said, Iím not sure how accurate the information is but at least itís a
starting point. Thanks again for the Yoder web site, itís really wonderful.
