NOTE: Died 30 JUL 1987. Married William S Minor, 1928, Moundsville, WV.

When I first became interested in genealogy my mother and I visited Grace. She had the Yoho family history written down in a cash book. She said she sat with her father night after night, writing down what he knew about all of the Yohos in this area. The record was fairly accurate and listed my mother and had her line back to Peter Yoho and Margaret Baker. Grace didn't have many dates and place names, and some of the names were misspelled but everyone was listed in the book. That visit with Grace was all it took to get me hooked on this hobby. ...Vernon Anderson
