Thanks to Clyde Nafzinger of Wilmington,Delaware for this photograph of Eli M. Yoder (1844-1905) (YR12868) founder of the town of Yoder, Kansas. We featured this town in a YNL3 article by David Luthy. Eli was the son of Bishop Solomon Yoder of the Long Green, Maryland Amish congregation- who was covered in a sketch by H. Harold Hartzler in YNL8. Eli left the Amish, and went to Kansas where he met and married a non-Amish girl named Mary Young. Among the young men who followed him there was his nephew, John Nafzinger, who met and married Mary's sister Emma. Yoder, Kansas is located in Reno County, a few miles southeast of Hutchinson. A small park in Yoder's main square contains a granite marker that gives some of the history of the town.
