Comments by Tim Conrad- I believe that Peter Yoder's wife was
Catharina Trout. Anthony's death record confirms this. She was
likely the Catharina, daughter of Balthasar Trout and Eva Moser.
She was married 10 Aug 1783. This was shortly after her father
died, so she is single in the will. Peter had a land dealing with the
other Trouts and was a Tanner like his father in law, also
according to land records. Also, this was the only Trout family
in the area at the time. OK, Here's info on Peter's kids:
Hannah, married John Wolfgang-
1810 census, pg 826, Upper Mahantongo, 00100-00100
1820 census, pg 96, Upper Mahantongo, 100010-30010
1830 census, pg 68, Upper Mahantongo, 0001 001-1120 001
I figure Hannah born circa 1788. Not sure, but I think John is a Sr.
1820 census, pg 92, Upper Mahantongo, 210100-00100
1830 census, pg 069, Upper Mahantongo, 2010 01-1200 01
admin in OC 6:382- minors listed in OC 6:40 and 6:275
I figure Jeremiah born maybe 1795.
Maria married George Hartlein. 7 Oct 1797 - 19 Sep 1872.
She's buried with him at Jacob's Church, Reed Station, near Paxinos
in Northumberland Co. Some folks think his wife is a Moser/Masser/Mosser,
but I think they're confused by the fact that George Harlein's parents
were Conrad Hartlein and Elisabeth Moser. The records clearly show
she's a Yoder, d/o Peter.
George Hartlein:
1830 census, pg 67, Upper Mahantongo, 2000 1-0010 1
1840 census, pg 92, Upper Mahantongo, 1220 01-1000 11
1850 census, Upper Mahantongo, George 46, Maria 50, etc
1860 census, pg 571/#1411, Shamokin Twp, Mary 63, etc
Solomon, born circa 1800. census:
1820 census, pg 92, Upper Mahantongo, 100100-01000
1830 census, pg 69, Upper Mahantongo, 2210 1-0000 1
1840 census, pg 94, Upper Mahantongo, 3103 001-0100 01
1850 census, pg 383, Upper Mahantongo, Solomon 50, Elizabeth 48, etc
1860 census
1870 census, Hegins Twp, Solomon 70, etc
Catharine married Benjamin Neiswender. I have her born circa 1803. census:
1840 census, pg 94, Upper Mahantongo, 0100 1-2000 01
1850 census, Upper Mahanoy, Benjamin 35, Catharine 47, etc
Sarah married David Stein. David's will mentions Hartlein nephew in
Philadelphia. Sarah 5 Sep 1805-11 Jun 1882, buried Howerter's
(she may be called Salome on the stone, not sure offhand). Census:
1840 census, pg 093, Upper Mahantogo, 0000 01-0000 1
1850 census, Pine Grove Twp, David 39, Sarah 38, etc???
1880 census, pg 14/3/190/#134, Upper Mahantongo, David 72, Sarah 75
(and Sarah Yoder 12, servant)
a David Stein, will, Upper Mahantongo, 1888 (7:224)
mentions nephew Goerge J. Hartlein of Philadelphia
"Back to Peter - here's the deeds involved: 19:205 and 19:384 (one
for a deed and one for the bond - they looked the same to me basically
but I only have a copy of the one!) Here's the info from page 384.:

"Henry Schrekingast farmer and Harry Grining? both of Mahantonog Township in
the County of Berks and State.... That we are held and firmty? bound unto Peter
Yotter and Abraham Yotter of Mahantongo Township ... in the ful and just sum
of twelf hundred pounds lawful money of PA to be paid to the said Peter Yotter
and Abraham Yotter or to their certain Attorney Executor Administroarors or Assigns
...25 May 1802 ... for the sum of six hundred pounds ... paid by the above named
Peter and Abraham Yotter and by indnture... make over unto the said Peter
and Abraham Yotter two certain tracts of land containing in the whole three
hundred sixty five acres and 154 perches..."
Jacob Reiner (my ancestor) was the witness

So basically, Peter and Abraham had lots of trust with each other!

("Harrison Yoder's will is recorded in Sunbury. He instructs his
son Felix (only child) to give some money to "Mary Yoder" who
can only guess was his unmarried sister. Felix sells Harrisons land
and I have Felix's little book with the sales records. I haven't
found where he actually gave Mary any money. Maybe she wasn't alive.
"Harrison's death is recorded in Pottsville. He died 24 Nov 1901
buried 27 Nov 1901 at the "Union Church". Likely St Paul's Union
Church in Pitman where his son Felix was buried shortly after this.
There is no stone there, and I'm waiting for a reply from the Church
confirming his burial there. His wife Hannah died sometime between
1880 and 1902. Hannah was a daughter of John Wagner and wf
Magdalena Kramer.I have the details of the above if anyone is interested...

Father b. France Mother b. Belgium
My P.I. sent me an obit for Clair Yoder-- died 29 Oct. 1952, age 55 &
birth year is the census report of his being 21 must have been
result of lying about his age earlier, to get work? The obit is
courtesy of Mr. Bill Martin of the _Nanty Glo Journal_, Nanty Glo, PA,
where the mine accident took place. Mr. Martin is also town historian.

Clair m. the family servant, I guess! But i think the places of
birth for her parents are reversed...Louis Detandt came from
Antwerp, Clara Lermineaux from France...I think!

Clair McKinley Yoder is buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery; Section E,
lot 461, grove #1. Mercedes is buried next to him, in grove #2.
Both names on one stone. (Is this LDS lady an angel, or what!)

were born of Yoder males that carried the name. Corinda had several
children and others I know had children. My biggest source of that type of

2. OH 13382 - Solomon Yoder (b. 1821) OBIT:
On Saturday night, November 19th, at 11 o'clock, Father Solomon Yoder
closed his eyes to all that is mortal, having lived 83 years, 6 months and 9
days. Born in Schuylkill County April 30, 1821, he moved to Jefferson county in
1859, where he resided up to his death. He was a son of Solomon Yoder and had
two sisters and ten brothers, of whom one sister, Mrs. Edward Sherman of
Strattanville, and three brothers, William S. Yoder of Knoxdale, Amos Yoder of
Hawthorne and John Yoder of Higginsville, are living. His wife, Elizabeth Yoder
died November 25th, 1889. Since that time he made his home with his son, George
Yoder of Knoxdale. Mr. Yoder had a family of eight children, three of whom
survive him, Adam Yoder of Newtonburg, George Yoder and Mrs. Christena Wolf of
Knoxdale. The funeral services were conducted on Tuesday, November 22nd by Rev.
W. G. Fulton, in the U. B. church, after which interment was made at Centre
Hill cemetery. It is worthy of note that Father Yoder yet walked to the polls
on election day and cast his vote for the most popular man in the United States
for president. Father Yoder has been a Christian and a consistent member of
the U. B. Church since about the year 1860, when we first learned to know him.
(The Brookville Republican - November 24, 1904, p. 7)

-----Solomon Yoder, of Knox township, died last Saturday, Nov. 19th, after a
short illness, aged 84 years. (The Jeffersonian Democrat, Thursday, November
24, 1904, p. 8)
In the DEATH BOOK #2, p. 294, Brookville, Jefferson, PA:

"Hi! My grandmother's aunt, Florence Eberhart married John Bernard Yoder
in the 1890s in the state of WA in Mason County, probably. They had two
sons: Edward b. 01-03-1897 in Shelton, Mason County, WA and George b.
07-08-1905 in Aberdeen, Grays Harbor, WA. Florence's home when my
grandmother was young was in Aberdeen, WA where she ran a boarding
house. I just wondered if anyone needed to connect with any Eberhart
descendants. There is Florence's brother George's descendant, Mike L.;
there is Florence's sister, Rosa's descendants, Joy M. and Bill A.; and
there is myself a descendant of Florence's sister, Martha.
I was wondering what happened to the marriage of Florence and John Yoder
because I think they were divorced.
I remember meeting Ed & Adaline and Ruby Yoder when I was a girl living
in the L.A. area.---Edith "Edie" Sando, Oct.1999

From Dick Yoder of Bechtelsville
Hi Chris,

I'm going to send some of the backup information for this via mail . I know some of it I sent quite sometime ago , however I want to coordinate everything for you since you have so many Yoder branches to follow.

I will put the Upper Mahantango info. at the bottom of this .

Norwegian township , Sch. Co. was founded in 1811 from Berks Co. The tax records for Norwegian twsp. first show Abraham Yoder there in 1817 . Each year there was a different tax assessor , two of whom wrote in German which didn't help me . Abraham was the township tax assessor in 1818 . ( I'm enclosing a copy of it ).
1817 --he was assessed at $400 ,
1818 " $670 and taxed $1.01
1819 the same
1820 shows him with 170 acres assessed at $250 ????
1821 same
1822 he vanishes

I went to the index of Common Pleas Defendants and found :Docket #1 1812 42-P23
#2 1815 27-P79
#2 1816 5-P125
#2 1816 9-P127
#2 1816 44-P142
#3 1818 19-P103
#3 1818 20-P103
#4 1821 110-P316
#5 1821 38-P63

All the judgements were against Abraham.

In the 1820 census it lists Ab. with 1male 0-10 ; 1 male 11-16 1 male 45+ 1 female 11-16 ; 1 female 45

The only Ab I have who fits this age is OH 135.

1815 same as above except that Peter is listed as the tax assessor
Ab is assessed at 619

1816 Henry is assessed at 619 ( same as Ab 1815 ??) and one Ab is deleted and a single David Yoder is added

1817;1818;1819 missing

1820 Anthony , Solomon , Peter , Ab jr., Geo and David

1823 same above except Ab jr. is listed as having 3 horses , 5 cows and a grist mill , George is listed as having 5 cows and a sawmill. The Ab. jr. must be the son of George since Georged deeded the mill to his son Ab. in the will he made in 1817.
