                        UNLINKED YODER LINES 

                              Part 1 

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. 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. 


(NOTE applying to the Yater/Yeater families shown at S,T, and U: There is no known  connection between the YATER or YEATER family which may be of German origin  rather than Swiss and The Yoder or Yotter line. Three of the prime Yeater/Yater  family lines (though not all), are shown. Another name which is sometimes considered  similar to Yoder is "Yetter". We have not traced this name here as it seems clearly to  be from a separate Germanic origin... the Yeater family does appear likely to connect  with it. (This issue has been updated to include the addition of reference information on each family group) ----CKY-Oct.1995

Abram was 28 and I was 21 years of age. My father's name was John Yothers.

name was Mary Williams,  born 1804, died 1848. Her father's name was Joseph

Williams, born in Chester County, Pennsylvania. He came in early  youth to Centre County, was married to Jane Williams of Centre County. She was of Welsh paretage,tho' all the the same name. ...My mother was 44 when she died." ... I have 2brothers in Pennsylvania yet and I do want so much to see them. ....Well,  now I will tell you what church my folks nearly all benonged to. The Baptist Church. My grandfathers both were Baptists, joined in their old age. My grandmothers  neither were Baptists (or members of any church) and all my aunts and uncles, one a Methodist, one a Lutheran, and Joseph Yothers a Lutheran- but such good Christians. I tell you that every one of their homes I went to had a family altar and I thank God for such Christian homes. And my father's house the same! I have  known my father to call us up early when he went away from home (to work) in the morning and when my mother died, I was not yet 18, yet he said when he was away I should never neglect family prayers with my brothers and sisters.......")

are the names I posted which were found in an old family bible and a short

paragraph in the "History of Centre County" pg 332. I was researching my

Craig line and by luck, noticed a segment on Daniel Yothers whom I assumed

was related to the husband of my ggrandmother Mary Craig Yothers married

to another Daniel. Must be a son or grandson. Anyway- here's all it says; About

1820, Daniel Yothers removed from York County, and settled in Boggs township,

upon the Snow Shoe Pike, where William Smoyer lives. There he followed the

pursuits of farming and blacksmithing until his death in 1849. Of his seven children

two are living-Daniel in Indiana, and Benjamin in Illinois. John, another son, settled

in Boggs, and died in Houston on the old Flick farm, in 1877, aged seventy four.

Julia was b. 10/25/1832;  All of my names and dates came from a Craig family

bible that was in my grandparents home.  Irvin Thaddeus Craig was my

grandfather who was a son of Fillmore and Mary Adaline.  He lived in the same

home that Fillmore and Mary Adaline inherited from Fillmore's father, John Craig. 

It is in Huston twp, Julian.  I guess you could call it the homestead since John

settled it in the early 1860's.  The information about Julia Ann Turner, Daniel Yothers

wife, was gotten from 2 sources.  She was also listed in the Bible but her

family line has it's history recorded in the Centre County history section

in the library.  Her family line goes back to the revolutionary war with her

ancestor John (Johann) Turner born 5/6/1741. .--Barbara Bowser)

Lauper- 11/10/1990-  "My father Benjamin was the youngest son (of)

Daniel Yother and grandmother Elizabeth (sic?). They called their name

Yoder until 1852. He was born in Center County, Penn 1807 July 15 and

died  in Ashton, Illinois June 16, 1883 as it is on the tombstone in Ashton.

My mother was born in Doffins (Dauphin) County Penn in 1809 and died

6 April 1895. They were married by a minister by the name of McGlaughlin

at Pottsville Penn. My father had 6 brothers and 1 sister. Their names were

Daniel, John, Jacob, Joseph, Conrad, Ephrim and Mary who married a man

by the name of Mulholland.. My father's father came from Amsterdam

Holland. He had 2 brothers. One stayed in Holland and the other, whose

name was Frank came to Penn with him his anme was Daniel. Frank

afterward went to Kentucky. One of his sons is in Placer Co. near El

Dorado this state (California). Lewis Yoder who we know in San Francisco

is the son of Conrad."

 These are tax lists for North Middleton Township and I’m fairly certain they are 1871 and 1872.  I need to go to CCHS and double check soon.  It’s in my notes but they have become separated from the copies.  :

Anyway, here goes:
Hezekiah Yoter, freeholder, farmer, had 193 acres of slate land, a log house and a frame barn, valued at $14 per acre; gross actual value $1472.  I believe that is for 1872.  3 horses valued at $120, 4 cattle & paid county & state tax of $15.15.  He had a pleasure carriage valued at $20.  

Since the list is alpha order, on the same page are these freemen:
Yoter, Hezekiah Jr.   taxed .95 and value $30 for pleasure carriage; TEACHER
Yoter, S.B.  Taxed 1.00; laborer
Yoter, J.L. - DEAD  1.00; laborer


The “other” year I have lists:
Yoter, Hezekiah’s heirs, freeholder, farmer, 118 acres, log house and log barn, also log house and bank barn.
Value $13/acre.  Gross actual value $1534.  No tax listed.

Same page (alpha) Could assume tenants of Hezekiah but could be elsewhere too...
Yoter, Samuel  Tenant, 1 horse value $45, 7 cattle value $112, pleasure carriage value $35, tax .82
Yoter, Joseph  Tenant, 2 horses value $115, 2 cattle value $32, pleasure carriage value $40, tax .84


Well, I don’t know if that’s helpful & sorry about the dates.  For what it’s worth, I think the slate land is less desirable, and is north of the Conodoguinet Creek; the Getter farm was on limestone and was south of the creek.  (It’s a huge curvy creek, neat to see on map)  This is in the area of the Plainfield Bethel where Hezekiah is buried.  Perhaps this will give you some little clues.

G3-3- Elmer Elsworth (The baseball Hall of Famer) (6/26/1900 Plainwell, Pa-

7/26/1966 Camp Hill, Pa)


Elmer did live in Kennedy Township ( McKees Rocks, Pa. ...about 8 miles out of Pittsburgh) when I knew him the best. We visited almost every week...and alterante weeks he came to our house. He and my mom and her sister were very close. IN fact ...his brother JOseph( My mom's dad) lived in McKees ROcks when my Mom was growing up...he died there, very young, at about age 36 I think.

”He died in 1966 but his death is recorded in Camp HIll..which I don't understand really as I was born in 1954 and remember him vividly. I'll have to ask my Mom when he actually went back toward Harrisburg? They tore down his beautiful home ( behind it was skating rink where we always skated) to build a Catholic Church, after his death. Sad….


“Most of his things went to his daughter, our cousin,Lorraine...who unfortunately  died of cancer about 20 years ago. She was his sole heiress and had no children of her own, but adopted the sons of her husband..

My mother Gayle (Yoter) Domenick, Joseph's daughter, passed away, sadly, May 29th, broke my heart. She was my best friend. I will miss her terribly. -- Lisa Domenick, June 2005

Yotter line. The following represents some of the prime Yeater/Yater family lines  (though not all). Another name which is sometimes considered similar to Yoder is  "Yetter".

Pioneer Families of Missouri 1876, by William S. Bryan and Robert Rose, Published by Bryan, Brand & Co., St. Louis Missouri, 1876.

 “Conrad Yater, of Germany, came to America and settled first in Virginia,

where he married.  In 1818 he came to Missouri and settled in Warren

County.  During his residence here he built four mills (one run by

water, two by horses, and one by oxen), and one distillery.  His child-

ren were: Joseph, Peter S., Polly, Elizabeth, Nancy, Henry, Sarah,

Catharine, Charles and George W.  Joseph married Polly Phoenix, and

settled in Pike County, MO.  Polly married John Johnson, of Pike County.

Elizabeth married Joseph King, of Montgomery County.  Nancy married

Colonel Reuben Pew, of Montgomery County.  Henry married Susan Shields,

of Pike County.  Sarah married Israel Sitters, of Callaway County.

Catharine married Nicholas Bradley, of Callaway County.  Charles married

Judith Jamison, of Callaway County.  George W. married Elizabeth Coil,

and settled in Warren County.  Peter S. married Miss Slonce, of Kentucky

and settled in Warren County in 1818.  He built a stone chimney 8 x 9

feet in size, and afterward built a cabin to the chimney.  He obtained

assistance from St. Charles County to raise his cabin, and as he furn-

ished plenty of good whisky, it took them a week to finish it.  When

the house was completed he gave a dance, and during the night the floor

gave way and let them all down into the cellar.  Thomas Howell played

the fiddle, and Rev. Thomas Bowen, who was a young man then, danced as

vigorously as any of the other guests.”

m. 9/17/1871 Sarah Ann Long  (8/8/1850 Locust Twp., Columbia Co., Pa-   )  bur. Reformed Cem., Numidia  (From County Biographical History: “DANIEL YODER, farmer, P.O. Roaringcreek, was born in Northumberland County, Penn., July 13, 1847, a son of Abraham and Catherine (TROUTMAN) YODER, natives of Pennsylvania and of German descent. His father's great-grandfather came from Germany and settled in Berks County, where he resided several years and then moved to Schuylkill County, bought a tract of land, farmed and kept the old tavern at Mount Pleasant, but later left the place and went to Delaware County, Ohio, where he died. He never received anything for the farm he left, which was afterward taken up by other parties who discovered coal on it, and it became a valuable property. Our subject's father was born in Berks County, but spent the greater part of his life in Schuylkill County. He owned several properties and in early life followed lumbering and teaming. In 1867 he came to this county and settled in Locust Township near the foot of the Little Mountain, where he bought some mountain land, and resided until his death in July, 1880. He was the father of eleven children, eight living: Aaron, who served in the civil war and lost a limb; Daniel, Samuel, Hannah, Leah, Rachel, Elizabeth and Susan. Our subject was reared on a farm and remained at home until twenty-two, when he went west, visiting Iowa and other Western States and was absent about six months. A year after his return he settled in Frackville, Schuylkill Co., Penn., on land belonging to him, where he resided about five years following the lumber business. In 1875 he bought the farm where he now resides, and which consists of 106 acres of good land. He has made a great many improvements and built a barn 35x75 feet. He was married, September 17, 1871, to Sarah A. LONG, and they are the parents of eight children, seven of whom are living: Sylvester, Esther, Daniel L., Abraham, Joseph, Wellington and Rachel C. Mr. and Mrs. YODER are members of the German Reformed Church as are also Sylvester and Esther. Our subject served two years as superintendent of the Lutheran Reformed Sunday-school –a union school. In politics he is a Republican. (History of Columbia and Montour Counties Pennsylvania, Battle, 1887, pg. 500-1)”
