Jacob Voepel
The marriage contract on the page for Jacob Voepel (1820-1879) is not related to him.
Thank you,

I believe the info on the burial of Nicolas Fain is in error. Please contact me at for more information.

Best Regards,

Vivian, I am directly related to Rebecca Ann Johnston who married George Washington Yoakum. Rebecca Ann was my grandfather's sister. If you wish any information, please contact me via email: Please note that Rebecca's maiden name was Johnston not Johnson.

Would you happen to know which Yoakums lived next to the VanBebber farm (about 7 miles from Polo) during the 1930's. I am looking for the names of the husband and wife. Mrs. Yoakum used to bring her quilt tops over to my Granny (Ethel VanBebber) so my granny could do the quilting. I used to spend my summer's there when I was 6-10 years old.

Contributions to Frank Wild
Hi Vivian,

I am just wondering about your contributions to my great grandfather Frank Wild. Are we related? And if so, How? Looking through your list of other contributions, I don't see a single name that I recognize.

Would love to know more.

Hi Vivian,

I found some info for Martha Newhall Fitch.

She was first married to James P Emery of NY # 14948443 on 2/10/1848 in Adams IL. James died in 1858 Stacyville IA.

Martha & James had 4 sons:
Henry P 1849 IL
George H 1850 IL
Edward T IA # 60059640
James P IA # 131557602

Martha then married Charles Fitch of CT on 1/16/1862 in Stacyville IA. Charles was also a widower.

Martha & Charles had 1 son:
William 1865 IA

Thank you!

Yoakum babies graves
Hello Vivian,
Please read the problem I wrote associated with the request for the headstone. I'm going to try another location.

2 Yoakum babies
Hello Vivian,
My husband & I are pretty sure we know where this Yoakum Cemetery is at. The longitude & latitude picture shows where it's at. Within Oak Hill Cemetery. Probably the baby section. We'll look soon & get back with you.

Ella Yoakam
I added a memorial for Ella Yoakam (163368396), daughter of John and Martha Lucinda Green Yoakam. Do you know anything else about the family?

Hi Vivian,

In reference to the picture of Jesse and Martha, I have been told that the earlier picture could not be the same Jesse Yoakum as the physical characteristics (light hair, dark hair etc) does not match. My grandmother was the daughter of Martha and Jesse. My mother has always told me that the earlier picture is Jesse and Martha.

I am looking into another possible line for both Jesse and Martha based on oral family history. I have found one document that supports this theory somewhat. I have not been able to find any marriage documentation for Jesse and Martha or Martha and her previous husband. I am still searching.

Do you know of any DNA results?

Thank you for the cemetery information.. I have enjoyed reading all the comments.

If I can be of help to anyone researching this family please let me know.
