Bev Gillihan YOAKUM, CHARLES HENDERSON (1849-1909). Charles Henderson Yoakum, attorney, state legislator, and United States Congressman, son of Narcissus (Teague) and Franklin L. Yoakum,qv was born near Tehuacana, Texas, on July 10, 1849. His father, a physician, educator, and Presbyterian minister, was the brother Henderson King Yoakum,qv attorney and friend of Sam Houston,qv and author of a two-volume history of Texas published in 1855. Charles Yoakum was educated at Larissa College, Larissa, Texas, which his father served as president, and at Cumberland College. Upon completion of his education, Yoakum became a schoolteacher. He studied law in his spare time, was admitted to the bar, and began a practice at Emory, in Rains County, in 1874. Two years later he was elected county attorney, a position that he held for several years. Yoakum moved to Greenville, the county seat of Hunt County, in 1883 and established a law practice. Three years later he was elected district attorney of the Eighth Judicial District and remained in this position until 1890. His experience in public office no doubt aided in his election to the Texas Senate in 1892. Four years later Yoakum won election, as a Democrat, to the House of Representatives of the Fifty-fourth Congress. He declined a reelection attempt in 1898 due to ill health and in that year, seeking a healthier climate, moved his law practice to Los Angeles, California. He met with continued success in business and legal affairs in California. In 1904, having received an appointment as general attorney for the Frisco Rail system in Texas-a system made up of the Fort Worth and Rio Grande, St. Louis, San Francisco and Texas, and Paris and Great Northern lines-of which his brother, Benjamin F. Yoakum, was chairman, Charles Yoakum returned to Texas. He settled in Fort Worth, headquarters of the Frisco lines in Texas. Yoakum died of a heart attack at his home on January 1, 1909. He was a lifelong Democrat, a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and the Masonic, Odd Fellows, and Grand fraternities. Charles H. Yoakum was buried in his family's plot at Myrtle Cemetery in Ennis, Texas.

Bev Gillihan YOAKUM, HENDERSON KING (1810-1856). Henderson King Yoakum, historian, son of George and Mary Ann (Maddy) Yoakum, was born in Claiborne County, Tennessee, on September 6, 1810. He graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1832. On February 13, 1833, he married Evaline Cannon of Roane County, Tennessee; they became the parents of nine children. In the spring of 1833 Yoakum resigned his lieutenant's commission in the army and began to practice law in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He became captain of a company of mounted militia in 1836 and served near the Sabine River under Edmund P. Gaines.qv In 1837 Yoakum was mayor of Murfreesboro. In 1838 he reentered the army as a colonel in the Tennessee infantry and served in the Cherokee War. He was a member of the Tennessee Senate from 1839 to 1845 and as senator urged the annexationqv of Texas. On October 6, 1845, Yoakum established residence at Huntsville, Texas, and on December 2, 1845, was admitted to the Texas bar. In 1846 he was instrumental in making Huntsville the county seat of Walker County. At the outbreak of the Mexican Warqv he volunteered as a private under John C. (Jack) Haysqv and served at Monterrey as a lieutenant under James Gillaspie.qv With the expiration of his enlistment on October 2, 1846, he returned to his law practice at Huntsville, where Sam Houstonqv was his close friend and client. Although a member of the Methodist Church, Yoakum, in 1849, wrote the charter for Austin Collegeqv and served as a trustee for that school from 1849 to 1856. He helped establish the Andrew Female Collegeqv in Huntsville and in 1849 was appointed director of the state penitentiary there. In 1853 he became "master mason" and then "high priest" of the Huntsville Lodge. In July of that year he moved to his country home, Shepherd's Valley, seven miles from Huntsville, where in 1855 he completed his two-volume History of Texas from Its First Settlement in 1685 to Its Annexation to the United States in 1846, for which Houston was said to have given him much of the information. In the fall of 1856 Yoakum went to Houston to deliver a Masonic address, attend to some courtroom duties, and visit his friend, Judge Peter W. Gray.qv While attending court he suffered a severe tubercular attack and was treated after being taken to Judge Gray's home, but weakened and died there on November 30, 1856. Yoakum County, established in 1876, was named in honor of Henderson King Yoakum. In 1936 the Texas Centennial Commission erected a marker at the site of the Yoakum home in Shepherd's Valley

Bev Gillihan George, born 1 May 1842, and his brother Benjamin, born 1840, sons of Wesley and Emily YOAKUM STEPHENS, of Monroe County, Tennessee, were orphaned in 1854 (the result of a cholera epidemic). George went to live with his uncle Dr. Franklin Yoakum in Limestone County, TX. In 1860 George was farming and living in the home of J. M. Sharrock of Cherokee County, TX.

George enlisted in Confederate service on April 27, 1862 at 11th Texas Infantry Regiment, Reynolds Brigade, Walker's Division at Camp Lubbock (near Houston) as a private. He was elected 2nd Lieutenant and assumed command of Co. C. June 23, 1862 and on muster roll for January and February 1864 (last on file). Shown absent sick since February 1864. According to his two witnesses on his CSA Texas pension application of August 1921, George Taylor and W. M. Berryman, George fought with them on the 3rd day of November 1863 on the boggy bayou in Louisiana.

George married a young widow 11 November 1864 Grayson County, Texas. Mary Catherine Sarver was born 1842 on the New River in Montgomery Co, VA. She was the widow of Pearis Olinger. George and Mary had three children, William (Bill), James and Martha "Mittie" Olivia.

In the 1870 census with George Stephens was a store clerk in Whitesboro, Grayson County, TX. Mary Catherine died in 1874. George married C. Fannie Edsall (a widow with six children, two at home), and moved his store into Chickasaw Territory and established a post office first near Jimtown, later near Healdton.

George sent his daughter to Catholic Schools in Grayson county. Not many girls in the 1880s had the opportunity for education to the eighth grade.

George, his sons Bill and Jim, and son-in-law Rufus Cobb, were in the run opening the Cheyenne and Arapaho Country in April 1892. After they had made their homestead claims in Custer County, they went back to the Chickasaw Nation and prepared to move their families and belonging to Custer County. Three covered wagons made the trip in October 1892. It took two weeks to travel from Stephens Post Office to Arapaho, "G" county, Oklahoma Territory.

George and Fannie Stephens built and owned the Orient Hotel in Arapaho, Oklahoma. The building was destroyed by lightning in 1902 and later rebuilt at Custer City.

George was interested in health and healing. He published "The Magnetic Healer," copyright 1900, "Designed for Student and Teacher," promises "This little work if followed will not only save doctor's bills, but life. It is the straight path of life." The book divided "Magnetic Healing" into hypnotism, vital magnetism and mental science. The book covered subjects from Asthma, Appendicitis and Apoplexy to Vomiting, Water Brash and Yellow Jaundice in 61 pages. The introduction admonishes those who wished to follow this science to keep their selves unspotted from the world. The book embodied a trend of thought from which came the modern day Christian Scientists.

George applied for a correspondence course in the InterState School of Osteopathy at 148 Washington Street, Chicago in 1902. He paid $10 for his home-study course. His study books were Gray's Anatomy, Kirk's physiology, Potter's Compendium Anatomy, Gould's Lexington.

George was awarded the Masonic Third Degree at Custer City 24 September 1906. He retired to Confederate Soldiers's Home in Austin, Texas and died there 11 March 1927.

Finis Ewing Yoakum

Faith healer and social reformer, A medical doctor in Texas, Colorado, and California, Finis Yoakum (1851-1920) gave up his lucrative medical career following a personal healing miracle to found the Pisgah Home Movement in Highland Park at the Christ Faith Mission/Old Pisgah Home. Born to Franklin and Narcissa (Teague) Yoakum; his father was a country physician in Texas, who later became a minister with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and served as the president of their college in Larrisan Texas. A younger brother, Benjamin Franklin Yoakum, was an important figure in American commerce, serving as president of the San Antonio and Arkansas Pass Railway and chairman of the board for the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad ("Frisco") as well as several other major railroads and business enterprises.

In 1873, Finis took a wife, Mary. They had three sons and twin daughters. Yoakum studied at Larissa College ultimately graduating from the Hospital College of Medicine in Louisville, Kentucky, with the M.D. degree on June 16, 1885. Following medical school, he specialized in neurological disorders and finally occupied the Chair of Mental Disease on the faculty of the Gross Medical College in Denver, Colorado.

On the evening of July 18, 1894, while on his way to organize a Class Leader's Association for his Methodist Church, Finis Yoakum was struck by a buggy operated by a drunken man. A piece of metal pierced his back, broke several ribs, and caused internal hemorrhaging. A medical assessment of his injuries predicted them to be fatal. Plagued by infection for several months, he moved to Los Angeles hoping to gain relief in its mild climate. In early 1895, he made a miraculous recovery during a dramatic healing experience and by the Summer of that year he was again practicing medicine. After his recovery Dr. Yoakum received visions directing him to create a mission for the needy. He soon turned his home at 6044 Echo Street into a mission moving himself and his family into a tent adjacent to his home. The site soon grew with additions to his original Queen Anne home and the conversion of an adjacent barn as a new tabernacle that also doubled as a dormitory. He vowed to spend the remainder of his life serving the chronically ill, poor destitute, and social outcasts. This is what gave rise to the Mission Site still operating today.

While in Los Angeles, he associated with a number of churches speaking on divine healing and hosting many camp meetings at the Mission site or along the Arroyo Seco two blocks to the east. During the Azusa Street revival gatherings in Los Angeles (credited as the founding movement of the Pentecostal Church) he hosted many followers at the Mission site in Highland Park. He named his Mission site, Pisgah Home after the hill where Moses stood to view the promised land. By 1915, he had built an impressive Tudor home just three blocks from the Mission at 140 S. Avenue 59. Most of the labor to build this home came from Mission residents.

Headquartered from Christ Faith Mission on Echo Street, Dr. Yoakum created a variety of outreach ministries throughout the Los Angeles area. These efforts were called Pisgah, giving the Mission Site the additional name as headquarters for many of these efforts. In 1911, Pisgah Home provided regular housing for 175 workers and stable indigents and made provisions for an average of 9,000 clean beds and 18,000 meals monthly to the urban homeless, the poor, and the social outcasts, including alcoholics, drug addicts, and prostitutes. Each week, Yoakum sent his workers throughout Los Angeles to distribute nickels for the cost of trolley fare to Pisgah Home. Other activities included the nearby Pisgah Store, Pisgah Ark (recovery House for Women), Pisgah Gardens (rehabilitative center, orphanage, and farm in North Hollywood), Pisgah Grande (3,225 acres for a utopian community in Chatsworth), and a later donation of a 500 acre retreat center and farm in Tennessee.

Dr. Yoakum was a controversial figure throughout the latter part of his life. He was the object of a love hate relationship with the City of Los Angeles, because his ministry at the Mission site attracted indigents to the City from across the country, yet the City was happy to send many of their own to him for care.

The site is closely aligned with the founding of the modern Pentecostal church. Pentecostalism, a world wide Protestant movement that originated in the late 19th century in the Los Angeles area, Kansas and in the Southern Appalachian Mountains in the Southeast, takes its name from the Christian feast of Pentecost, which celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples. Pentecostalism emphasizes a post conversion experience of spiritual purification and empowering for Christian witness, entry into which is signaled by utterance in unknown tongues, also known as glossolalia.

I do not know at what date Long Tom was discovered, but in 1868, it was a well-established mine, and was worked extensively until the eighties. The Long Tom mail had to be brought by some neighbor volunteering to do the job from some community stage station. It was said about $300,000 was taken out, but some people thought $350,000 had been put in. That was the general history of so many of the mines of this western slope of the Sierras. In 1878, when the tragedy happened which the old timers think of when Long Tom is mentioned, the pockets had not been worked out, and the ledge of Long Tom itself, was still rich, and holding. In 1868, the owners of the Long Tom mine were the two Yoakums brothers. The older, I think, was named Bill, and the younger, Jim. Many miners were working their claims nearby. Prominent among these were the Tuckers and the Johnsons. Ambrose Tucker lived to be an old man, lived out his life at Long Tom. I knew him over a period of many years. I think he is buried near the mine.
The Yoakum brothers, while many people lived there, had about thirty miners employed. They owned a store, a mill, and a blacksmith shop.
The Tuckers and Johnsons had been successful in getting a miner sent to prison for stealing gold from one of their mines. He swore to return and even the score when he had served his sentence, which was not a very long one. He had only stolen gold - not a horse! If the latter, the aroused populace would have probably lynched him.
This miner was known to have been seen across the mountains, in Kernville, just prior to the murders of Tug Tucker and one of the Johnson men. They were returning in two spring wagons, each with his wife seated beside him. They were hauling a load of provisions and mining necessities to Long Tom, which had been purchased in Bakersfield.
They were driving along a comparatively level stretch of road, just a short distance southwest of the Long Tom settlement. There was a rock at this spot, with a convenient hole entirely through it, just right to shoot through, if one wanted to do so. The rock was over six feet high, four feet wide, and about fourteen inches thick.
Both the women told that their husbands were shot from their sides by murderers whose voices they recognized. They said it was the Yoakum brothers' voices. Also, that they saw one of the men wore brass-toes boots. Did he wave a foot out from behind the rock at them? The Yoakums, the Rucker and the Johnson men were having a bitter dispute over some mining claims. Looking back from 86 years later, it is very easy to understand how the ex-convict could have kept his threat to get even with Tucker Johnson. Also that the remaining families of the dead men could have, in all innocence, seen their arch enemies, the Yoakums, as the people guilty of this cold blooded ambush. The thoughts of the citizenry was divided at the time, and still remains so, amongst the second and third generations, as to those guilty of this outrage.

The Yoakums were arrested, bound over for trail in the Justice Court, and remanded to the sheriff's custody until a trail could be held. The Yoakums immediately commenced action to get a change of venue. This gave time for much lynch talk before they were tried by the enemies of the Yoakums.

One lynch mob, which showed the people weren't sure that the Yoakums were even to be suspected too strongly, was stopped rather abruptly: -- Two of the Higgins brothers, great uncles of late Senator Clair Engle, were sinking a shaft quite a distance down the Long Tom Gulch from the camp. Other miners were working at intervals between the two places. I don't know which of the Higgins brothers was down in the shaft, but I do know that Bill Higgins, whom I knew all my live until his death, was running the windlass on this particular day. Fortunately, they had a friend working quite a distance north of there in the same gulch. This man was surprised one day to see quite a number of men approaching him down the gulch from the north, armed with Winchesters and six-shooters. He knew them, and of course made inquiry as to the cause of their war-like appearance.
This was their conversation as the story has come down through the years:

"Well, boys, what are you up to?"
"The Tucker and Johnson women said one of the men who killed their husbands wore brass-toed boots. Bill Higgins wears brass-toed boots. They are sinking a shaft just down the gulch. We are going down to get him, and settle this thing right now."
"Wait a minute, boys, until I can get my rifle, and I will go with you."
They waited. He got his gun, and then saw to it that the lynch minded mob walked down the trail ahead of him. When they could see Bill Higgins, a sixteen-year old boy, standing by the windlass, the man who had joined the job, and had walked down behind them with his rifle in hand, suddenly called out, "Drop your guns, boys, your party is over. Just turn around and go home." That mob was stopped still but the next one was not.

It began to appear that the Yoakums might get their change of venue. Many people began to express doubt that women whose husbands had just been shot from ambush and toppled down from their sides, could really hear any man's voice unless shouted, a hundred steps' distance. Or that they could distinguish a brass toe on a boot, and even if they could see this brass toe, the people began to notice that a large number of their neighbors wore replicas of the oft-mentioned brass-toed footwear.

All this brought to a head the gathering of a mob that wasn't stopped until it completed its deed. No friend to stop it this time. The mob had no trouble in entering the jail and enforcing its will upon the sheriff. He kindly turned over the jail keys to a crazy bunch of enraged citizens. I knew many, of whom it was rumored were the mob.
Bill Yoakum tried to save his younger brother, told them that this boy had nothing to do with his mining deals. Bill felt sure they were the cause of most of the animosity against them. Finally, he begged them, "I promised my mother I would not die with my boots on. Please let me take them off."
The mob agreed. Bill sat down, took his boots off and came up fighting. He about had the lynch crowd whipped, when both brothers were shot, and then hanged.
Ambrose Tucker carried a deep scar on his skull all his life. Was he one of that brave crew?

Bill Yoakum left a widow, who after a few years, married a prominent man of our mountain community. The man is said to have very foolishly admitted to her that he had been a member of that gang who killed her former husband. She left him "right now." I knew people who claimed this was a fact. I also knew the children of this women by both husbands. My mother knew the man who supposedly made the ill-considered confession. They were all most excellent people.

Another aftermath - three of this guilty mob committed suicide not too long after Bill Yoakum almost fought his way to freedom with that brass-toed boot, which caused his death.

Bev Gillihan Reprinted from FRONTIER TIMES, January, 1978, p. 10ff;

Stories about the old Goodnight and Chisholm Trails have so dominated the writings of Western Americana that even Texans have forgotten that their first great cattle drives ended up at New Orleans rather than Abilene or Dodge City, Kansas.

When the Spanish viceroy lifted a trade ban between Texas and Spanish Louisiana in 1778, a New Orleans-bound cattle drive of 2.000 steers, driven by Francisco Garcia, left San Antonio in 1779, the first drive of record along the unsung Opelousas Trail. By the mid-1850s, more than 40,000 Texas Longhorns were being driven annually across Louisiana, and no one welcomed the cattle drovers more enthusiastically than did Thomas Denman Yocum, Esq., of Pine Island settlement in Southeast Texas.

The first Anglo rancher along the Opelousas Trail was James Taylor White, who by 1840 owned a herd of 10,000. In 1818 he settled at Turtle Bayou, near Anahuac in Spanish Texas, and he was a contemporary of Jean Lafitte, whose pirate stronghold was on neighboring Galveston Island. By 1840, White had driven many large herds over the lonely trail, and a decade later, had more than $150,000 in gold banked in New Orleans, the proceeds of his cattle sales.

By 1824 there were others from Stephen F. Austin's colony, between the Brazos and Colorado Rivers, who joined White in the long trail drives, and a favorite stopover was Yocum's Inn, where the welcome mat was always out and the grub was always tasty and hot.

Thomas Yocum settled on a Mexican land grant on Pine Island Bayou, the south boundary of the Big Thicket of Southeast Texas, around 1830. It was then a virgin, sparsely-settled region of prairies, pine barrens, and thickets, and any settler living within ten miles was considered a neighbor. The deep, navigable stream, 100 feet wide and 75 miles long, was a tributary of the Neches River and had already attracted ten or more pioneers who also held land grants from the Mexican government. Often they heard the pound of hoofs and bellowing of thirsty herds, bound for the cattle crossing over the Neches at Beaumont. There were more than thirty streams which intersected the trail and which had to be forded or swum in the course of travel. And always Yocum rode out at the first sound of the herds and invited the drovers to quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger at the Inn.

Some people who stopped at the Inn were headed west. Sometimes they were new immigrants driving small herds into Texas. Some, like Arsene LeBleu, one of Jean Lafitte's former ship captains, were Louisiana cattle buyers carrying money belts filled with gold coins, and were en route to White's Ranch or elsewhere to buy cattle. The popularity of Yocum's Inn spread far and wide. Its genial host soon became the postmaster of Pine Island settlement under the old Texas Republic, supervised the local elections, served on juries, and was widely respected by his neighbors and travelers alike.

Yocum acquired much land and many slaves, and by 1839 his herd of l500 heads of cattle was the fourth largest in Jefferson County. While other settlers rode the wiry Creole, or mustang-size, ponies of a type common to Southwest Louisiana, Yocum's stable of thirty horses were stock of the finest American breeds, and his family drove about in an elegant carriage.

A gentleman's life , however, held no attraction for Squire Yocum, a man who literally was nursed almost from the cradle on murder and rapine, and for many years Yocum's Inn was actually a den of robbers and killers. What is the most startling is the fact that Yocum was able to camouflage his activities for more than a decade, maintaining an aura of respectability while simultaneously committing the worst of villainies, with a murderous band of cutthroats unequaled in the history of East Texas.

How Yocum could accomplish this since he used no alias, is unexplainable, for he, his brothers, his father, and his sons were known from Texas to Mississippi as killers , slave-stealers, and robbers. If any neighbor suspected that something at Yocum's Inn was amiss, he either feared for his life or was a member of the gang.

One account, written by Philip Paxton in 1853, observed that Yocum, "knowing the advantages of a good character at home, soon by his liberality, apparent good humor, and obliging disposition, succeeded in ingratiating himself with the few settlers."

Squire Yocum was born in Kentucky around 1796. As a fourteen-year-old, he cut his criminal eyeteeth with his father and brothers in the infamous John A. Murrell gang who robbed travelers along the Natchez Trace in western Mississippi. At first Murrell was reputed to be an Abolitionist who liberated slaves and channeled them along an "underground railroad" to freedom in the North. Actually, his gang kidnapped slaves, later selling them to the sugar cane planters of Louisiana.

Murrell soon graduated to pillage and murder, but slave-stealing remained a favorite activity of the Yocum brothers, and on one occasion two of them, while returning to Louisiana with stolen horses and slaves, were caught and hanged in East Texas.

When law enforcement in western Mississippi threatened to encircle them, the Yocums fled first to Bayou Plaquemine Brule, near Churchpoint, Louisiana, then in 1815 to the Neutral Strip of Louisiana, located between the Sabine and Calcasieu Rivers. Until 1821 the Strip knew no law enforcement and military occupation, and hence became a notorious robbers' roost for the outcasts of both Spanish Texas and the State of Louisiana.

In the Land Office Register of 1824, T. D. Yocum, his father, and two brothers were listed as claiming land grants in the Neutral Strip; and during the 1820s, according to the Colorado "Gazette and Advertiser" of Oct. 31, 1841, Yocum's father was tried several times for murder at Natchitoches, La., and bought acquittal on every occasion with hired witnesses and perjured testimony.

By 1824, Squire Yocum, once again feeling the pinch of civilization, had moved on to the Mexican District of Atascosita in Texas. He lived for awhile in the vicinity of Liberty on the Trinity River. Writing about him in 1830, Matthew White, the Liberty alcalde, notified Stephen F. Austin that Yocum was one of two men who allegedly had killed a male slave and kidnapped his family, and as a result "were driven across the Sabine and their houses burned." But Yocum was not about to remain so close to the hangman's noose and the fingertips of sheriffs and U. S. marshals. And he soon took his family and slaves to the Pine Island Bayou region where he built his infamous Inn. Having acquired some wealth and affluence by 1835, the old killer and slave stealer could become more selective with his victims.

Among the many travelers along the dusty Opelousas Trail, the eastbound cattleman often stayed at Yocum's Inn and left praising the owner's hospitality. And of course the genial proprietor always invited him to stop over on his return journey. It was the westbound Louisiana cattle buyer and the Texas rancher who had already delivered his herd in New Orleans whose lives were in danger. Usually drovers paid off and dismissed their hands in New Orleans. Texas cattlemen often traveled alone on the return trip, and if any of them lodged at Yocum's Inn, a bulging waist line, which usually denoted a fat money belt of gold coins, virtually signaled his demise. The drover's bones were left to bleach in the Big Thicket, at the bottom of the innkeeper's well, or in the alligator slough.

In East Texas, Squire Yocum's crimes spawned more legends, many of them about his buried loot, than any other man except Jean Lafitte. And every legend tells the story differently. One relates that a Texas rancher was backtracking a missing brother, who was overdue from a New Orleans cattle drive, and stopped at Yocum's Inn to make inquiries. A Yocum cohort informed the rancher that no one had seen the missing brother on his return trip; then suddenly the missing brother's dog rounded a corner of the Inn. Glancing elsewhere about the premises, the rancher recognized his brother's expensive saddle resting on a nearby fence. When the conversation became heated, Yocum's partner grabbed for a shotgun, but the rancher fired first and killed him. As told in the legend, Yocum overheard the conversation and accusations from a distance, and quickly fled into the Big Thicket.

Another legend tells of a foreigner who was carrying a grind organ and a monkey with him when he rode his big gray stallion to Yocum's Inn in search of a night's lodging. Earlier the stranger had played the hand organ for some children who lived nearby and who had given him directions to reach the Inn. The story adds that Yocum traded horses with the foreigner during his stay. When the children later found a battered hand organ abandoned beside the trail, there was little doubt about the foreigner's fate.

There are many early records, written at the time of Yocum's demise, which chronicle the innkeeper's death, but they sometimes conflict. The longest of them was written by Philip Paxton in 1853, and his account of how Yocum's misdeeds were exposed appears to be the most plausible. {{Indeed, his account is deadly accurate. See sources at end}} Paxton claimed that a man named (Seth) Carey, who owned a farm on Cedar Bayou near Houston, had killed a neighbor during a quarrel over a dog and fled to Yocum for asylum. It was agreed that Yocum would receive power of attorney to sell Carey's land grant and that Yocum would forward the proceeds of the sale to Carey in Louisiana. A gang member, however, told Carey that he had no chance of escaping to Lousiana. Yocum planned to pocket the proceeds of the sale and, besides, Carey had wandered upon some skeletons in a Pine Island thicket and thus had learned "too many and too dangerous secrets" about the murder ring at Yocum's Inn.

The earliest published account, which appeared in the San Augustine "Redlander" of Sept. 30, 1841, stated that Yocum was killed by the "Regulators of Jefferson County who were determined to expel from their county all persons of suspicious or bad character." The newspaper chided the vigilantes for killing Yocum and not allowing him the due process of law and a speedy trial. But the editor conceded that Yocum had a notorious record in Louisiana "as a Negro and horse stealer, repeatedly arrested for those crimes."

Three other accounts, however, two in the Houston papers of that era and another in the "Colorado Gazette and Advertiser," published at Matagorda, Texas, alleged that "Thomas Yocum, a notorious villain and murderer, who resided at the Pine Islands near the Neches River, has been killed by the citizens of Jasper and Liberty Counties . . . ."

"Yocum has lived in Texas twenty years and has committed as many murders to rob his victims. The people could bear him no longer so 150 citizens gathered and burned his premises and shot him. They have cleared his gang out of the neighborhood," thus putting an end to the Pine Island postmaster, his gang, and his Inn. Of course, only Yocum could reveal the true number of murder notches on his gun, which may have reached as many as fifty.

According to Paxton, the Regulators found the bones of victims in Yocum's well, in the neighboring thickets, in the "alligator slough," and even out on the prairie. They then burned Yocum's Inn, the stables and furniture, but allowed his wife, children, and slaves a few days to leave the county. The posse trailed the killers into the Big Thicket and eventually caught up with Yocum on Spring Creek in Montgomery County. No longer willing to trust a Yocum's fate to the whims of any jury, the vigilantes gave the old murderer thirty minutes to square his misdeeds with his Maker, and then they "shot him through the heart" five times.

Paxton also reported that "not one of Yocum's family had met with a natural death." Little is known of the fate of Yocum's sons other than Christopher, who in 1836 who had been mustered into Captain Franklin Hardin's company at Liberty, and who had served honorably and with distinction for one year in the Texas Army. Chris, whom many believed to be "the best of the Yocums," may not have been implicated in the murder ring at all, but he fled, leaving his young wife behind, perhaps because of the stigma that his surname carried and the public anger that was then rampant.

Believing that the public clamor for revenge had died down after a span of four months, Chris Yocum returned to Beaumont, Texas, one night in January 1842. Sheriff West, although he had no specific crimes to charge him with, was aware that a thirst for retribution still lingered and he arrested young Yocum for his own protection. Jefferson County's "Criminal Docket Book, 1839-1851" reveals that Chris was lodged in the county's log house jail on the afternoon of Jan. 15, 1842. What the book does not reveal is the fact that young Yocum faced Judge Lynch and an unsummoned jury of Regulators on the same night. The following morning West found him swinging from a limb of an oak tree on the courthouse lawn, with a ten-penny nail driven into the base of his skull.

During the second administration of Sam Houston as president of the Texas Republic, there were many excesses and assassinations, principally in Shelby County in East Texas, attributed to vigilante bands, who called themselves "Regulators." On Jan. 31, 1842, he issued a proclamation, ordering all district attorneys to prosecute the Regulators stringently for any offense committed by them. The proclamation began as follows: "Whereas . . . . certain individuals . . . have murdered one Thomas D. Yocum, burned his late residence and appurtenances, and driven his widow and children from their homes . . . ."

Whether or not President Houston's paper might have been worded somewhat differently if the chief executive had been forced to witness the bleached bones in Yocum's well or to bury some of the skeletons out on the prairie is, of course, another question.

Almost from the date of T. D. Yocum's death, legends began to circulate concerning the murderer's hoard of stolen treasure, because the vigilantes knew that neither the old robber nor any member of his family had had time to excavate it before they were driven from the county. Some of them thought that only Yocum and one of his slaves actually knew where the loot was hidden. Others claimed that Chris Yocum knew where the treasure site was, and that one of the reasons for his returning to Beaumont was to dig up the gold so that he and his young wife could start life anew somewhere under an assumed name. For years treasure hunters dug holes along the banks of Cotton and Byrd Creeks, and decades later sinks and mounds in the Pine Island vicinity were said to be the remains of those excavations.

Time passed, the Civil War was fought, and the Yocum episode became only a dim memory in the minds of the early settlers. Finally it was an elderly black woman in Beaumont who triggered the second search for Yocum's gold. She told her grandchildren that about 1840 she was a young slave girl who belonged to the owner of a plantation in the vicinity of Yocum's Inn. One day whe was picking blackberries when she heard voices nearby. She moved ahead along the banks of a creek until she finally spotted Yocum and one of his young slaves at a low spot or crevice in the creek bank. Both of them were busy backfilling a hole in the ground.

As a result of the old lady's story, another network of pot holes were dug up and down the banks of Byrd and Cotton Creeks. And once or twice a stranger appeared who claimed to have a map drawn by an old Nagro who said he was formerly Yocum's slave. But if anyone ever found the treasure, that fact was never made public, and one writer claims it is still there awaiting the shovel that strikes it first. Maybe so, but gold hunters usually don't print their findings in newspapers. And they, like buccaneers, ain't especially noted for their wagging tongues either.

Bev Gillihan Yocum, Seth Hartman
(1834-1895) —
Seth H. Yocum was born in Catawissa, Columbia County, Pennsylvania on August 2, 1834. He was educated in rural schools and then went to Philadelphia to learn the printing and editing trade. Yocum entered the class of 1860 at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. He was a member of the Phi Kappa Pse fraternity and graduated with his class in the early summer of 1860. He then returned to Philadelphia, where he was employed as an editor.
In July 1861, in Philadelphia, Yocum enlisted in Company C, Fifth Pennsylvania Cavalry as a sergeant. He transferred to Company A as second lieutenant in February 1862 and to Company G as first lieutenant in November 1862. Yocum mustered out in September 1864 at the end of his three-year enrollment and took up law studies. He was admitted to the Schuylkill County bar in Pottsville in 1865 and opened a practice.
Yocum relocated to Bellefonte, Pennsylvania in 1874 to join the firm of Bush, Yocum, and Hastings to replace his brother George, who had just been killed in a hunting accident. He served as the district attorney of Centre County from 1875 until 1878, when he won election as a member of the Forty-sixth Congress for the Twentieth District. Yocum was one of twenty-one independent members elected that year. He stood as a member of the Grange-influenced Greenback-Labor Party and defeated fellow Dickinsonian and former governor, Andrew Gregg Curtin, to win the seat. Yocum declined to serve more than one term and moved to Johnson City, Tennessee, where he involved himself in the large tanning concern of his father-in-law. He also served as the mayor of Johnson City in 1885. Soon after, Yocum moved his family to Pasadena, California and invested in the beginnings of the orange growing in the area. True to form, he served as mayor of Altadena while there.
In January 1867, Yocum married Lucinda Horton of New York. The couple had five children who survived infancy. On April 19, 1895, Seth Hartman Yocum died at his home in Pasadena and was later buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in the city. He was sixty years old.

Bev Gillihan YOCUM CEMETERY
Carroll County Arkansas

Located approximately 8 miles north of Green Forest, Arkansas. Yocum was a cemetery before the Civil War. No one seems to be able to recall who gave the ground. There are a large number of graves all marked with the same peculiar kind of small stone, but no names or dates.

NOTE: APPARENTLY THERE ARE NO YOCUMS BURIED HERE

Bev Gillihan THE LAST HOURS OF MIKE YOCUM
By S. C. Turnbo

One of the earliest settlers in Marion County, Arkansas, is Mike Yocum whose name we have mentioned so frequently in these sketches. Mr. Yocum had three brothers whose names were Jess, Solomon, and Jake. These four men had crossed the deep blue sea to America from Germany when they were little boys. At the age of 17 Mike was captured by the Indians and held a captive four years. At one time the Indians condemned him to suffer death by shooting him with arrows, but after the warriors had placed him on a block of wood to carry out his execution., the chief interfered in his behalf and saved him from a terrible death by shooting arrows into his body. These Indians had also captured a negro man at the time Yocum was taken. One day while Yocum and the negro were prisoners but were footloose, the negro and one of the Indian men got into a fight and the warrior bit off part of one of the negro’s ears. Some years after Yocum and the negro made their escape from the Indians., the latter finally fell in possession of Ewing Hogan, an early settler of Marion County, Arkansas. After the death of Ewing Hogan, Cal Hogan, son of Ewing Hogan, owned the negro. As long as Mike Yocum lived he loved old Ben the negro because they had been fellow prisoners and suffered together while in the hands of the red men. Ben lived until after the close of the Civil War and died at an extreme old age. In 1850, while Yocum lived at the mouth of Little North Fork and owned the mill there, he was a candidate for representative of Marion County. His opponent was Captain Henry, whose given name is forgotten. Both men were influential and had many friends which made the canvass hot. Ned Coker, who espoused the cause of Yocum, was one day talking with one of Captain Henry’s friends and during the conversation relating to the race between the two men, the latter remarked to Coker that "Captain Henry was a very nice man and ought to be elected." "Yes," replied Mr. Coker, Captain Henry looks nice enough, but he is a terrible liar." Mr. Yocum succeeded in defeating Henry and his friends rejoiced at the opportunity of sending him to Little Rock to represent in the legislature. When the war between the states broke out, Mr. Yocum sympathized with the south, but he was too old and feeble to enlist in the army. One day during the fall of 1862, he was arrested for being a southern man and taken to Springfield, Missouri, where he was imprisoned and compelled to suffer from disease and vermin until the following December when he was released. Sick and without money, he left the door of the prison house and walked and crawled all day. At night he found himself at "June" Campbell’s four miles south of Springfield. The poor suffering old man was completely exhausted. Exertion and disease had took away his strength and he was in a dying condition. He and Campbell were friends and when Yocum reached his residence, Mr. Campbell and his family did all in their power to relieve his suffering, but their efforts were unavailing, for in a few hours Mr. Yocum entered the great valley of darkness called death where there was no more fears of gloomy dungeons., starvation, and ill treatment. Ah, how much sweeter is death to the sufferer while in the hands of kind, loving friends than to have to pass your last hours while in the power of an enemy on the inside of a prison wall. Mr. Campbell, aided by his family, dug a grave on a knoll on his farm and here the mortal remains of this old pioneer of Arkansas was deposited. Thus passed away one of Marion County’s old timers and one among the best of citizens.

Bev Gillihan This Yocum family of Loup County, Nebraska begins with Frederic Wilhelm Yocum, born December 5, 1839 in Germany. He was likely the son of Henry Yocum (German spelling Jochen or Jochem or Joachim), born about 1808 in Lippa. Henry travelled from Bremen to the port of New Orleans in late 1848, and settled in Widner Township near Freelandville, Knox County, Indiana (near Vincennes). He was naturalized in Knox County on 26 Dec. 1849. The 1850 Census does not mention either Henry or Frederic.

The 1860 Census of Washington Township, Knox County lists Frederick Yocum, age 20, living with Richard Mayfield, a wagon maker from Kentucky. Frederick was also listed as a wagon maker, born in Germany. Also in the 1860 Census of Vigo Township, Knox County, there is a farmer, Henry Yocum, born 1835 in Germany, with wife, Louise, born 1836 in Germany, and son, John Yocum, born 1857 in Indiana.

Frederic enlisted in the Indiana Volunteers with the Union Army on April 24, 1861. He joined the 14th Indiana Regiment at Terre Haute, Indiana, and was assigned to the 1st Brigade, a part of the 3rd Division, under Brigadier General French in the 2nd Corps, commanded by Major General Edwin V. Summer. Frederic was a Private in Company G, Regiment 14, Indiana Infantry. Frederic was wounded in the battle of Antietam September 17, 1862 and spent time in the hospital in Philadelphia. He was wounded again in the Battle of the Wilderness, Virginia on May 5 - 14, 1864. He mustered out at Indianapolis, Indiana on June 6, 1864.

After the war, he married Mary Elizabeth (Wilhoit) Jarrell (who had a daughter, Maranda Jarrell and son, Willie Jarrell) on March 15, 1865 in Vincennes, Indiana. Mary was born in Knox County, Indiana on Feb. 6, 1842. They had one child, Edward Ulysses S. Grant Yocum, who was born on July 6, 1868 in Freelandville, IN.

In the 1870 Federal Census, they were living in Widner Twp, Knox County, IN. Frederic was listed as a wagon maker from Prussia. Neighbors included Mary Shipman, born 1815 in Prussia and Herman Brocksmith, born 1798, also from Prussia. Mary Shipman and Mary E. Fought, age 17, were living with the Yocum family. Other Yocum families living nearby include (1) Frederic Yocum, born 1812 in Prussia, with wife Louisa, born 1818 in Prussia, sons Junius Yocum, born 1854 and Frederic Yocum, born 1857 and daughter Matilda, born 1860 all in Indiana (2) August Yocum, born 1842 in Prussia, with wife Lottie, born 1842 in Prussia and son Henry, born 1867 in Indiana. (3) In the 1870 Census of Knox County, Widner Twp., there is a John Yocum, born 1846 in Prussia, with his wife Caroline and son, Henry, born March 1869 in Indiana.

August Yocum is also listed in the 1880 Census for Vincennes, Knox County, with wife Lotta and children Henry, Ada and Fred. Also in the 1880 Census for Widner Township, Knox County there are (1) John & Lena Yocum, both born abt. 1845 in Prussia with children, Henry, William, Minnie, Elizabeth and Carrie and (2) Fred & Minnie Yocum, both born abt. 1813-1815 in Prussia.

This small family traveled to Nebraska in 1873 and settled for about 10 years in Benton Precinct, Nemaha County in southeast Nebraska. About 1883 they moved to a homestead near Mason City in Custer County. They eventually moved on to Loup County, where they made their home. Frederick died on Dec. 5, 1922 in Loup County. Mary died on April 12, 1914 in Loup County.

THE YOCUM GANG
Jesse Ray, some of his sons, and some of his grandsons were suspected of being outlaws in Kentucky, along the Natchez Trace and in the Neutral Strip in southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas. Though several were hanged or shot by vigilante groups, none were arrested, tried, and convicted by legal authorities. The family criminal activities occurred over three generations from about 1800 to about 1878.
Jesse Ray Yoakum b: 1760 in Betetourt, Virginia d: Abt. 1840 in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana
(Veteran of the American Revolution) (Tried several times for murder in Natchitoches, suspected of bribing witnesses and jurors, never convicted).
Several descendants of Jesse Ray Yocum and Diana How Denton made their way to the lawless area in southwest Louisiana in the mid 1800s. Some were involved in the lawless activities of the time. Two sons were hanged. One, Zach Yocum, was hanged by "Regulators" in Louisiana (date unknown, perhaps around 1876) and the other was hanged by parties unknown in Texas in 1841. A grandson, Doc Addison fought off the Regulators, killing four of them, in Louisiana after fleeing from murder charges in Texas. Another son, Matthew (or Matthis) Yocum, along with his brother-in-law, James Collier, was suspected in the killing of Robert Collier (James's brother). They then attempted to kill Charles Chandler, Robert Collier's son-in-law.
These lawless few constituted a minority of the Yoakum family members in the area at the time.
The Yocums mentioned in the Handbook of Texas article "Yokum Gang" are all children of Jesse Yocum, son of Matthias Yoakum and Diana Denton, both of Kentucky. Matthias Yocum, b 1790, KY; Thomas D. Yocum, b 1796, Ky married Pamelia Peace, 9 Jan 1814, St. Landry Parish, LA; and Martha "Patsy" Yocum,b 20 Mar 1804, KY. m James Callier. Jesse and Diane had 11 children in all.

Bev Gillihan From "History of Davenport and Scott County" Vol. II by Harry E. Downer-S. J. Clarke Publishing Co. 1910 Chicago.


Isaiah Calvin Yocum, deceased, was at one time numbered among Scott county worthy and representative farmers. He was born August 21, 1845, of the marriage of William and Sarah (Dopp) Yocum. His birth occurred in Huntingdon county, Pennsylvania, and he began his education in the public schools there, but when nine years of age accompanied his parents on their removal to the middle west. They settled upon the farm which is now the home of his widow. It was then all prairie land, wild and unimproved, which the father purchased from Mr. Stacey.
After arriving in this county Isaiah C. Yocum continued his education in schools here and also attended a business college in Davenport. He then returned to the old homestead, where he carried on farming up to the time of his marriage, when he removed across the road, settling on another part of the farm. There he continued to reside until his death, which occurred December 4, 1902. He was always an energetic, enterprising farmer, carrying on his work diligently and persistently and meeting with that success which ever follows earnest effort. He was also one of the directors of the Farmers Mutual Insurance Company, and in addition to tilling his fields he dealt in stock and found that a profitable source of income.
Mr. Yocum was first married in Davenport, January 20, 1869, to Miss Hannah C. Pollock, who died on the 30th of May 1871, and their only child, William James H., who was born in May, 1871, died on the 6th of the following August. On the 10th of February, 1875, Mr Yocum was married to Miss Martha Ellen Pollock, a sister of his first wife and a daughter of James and Mary (Logue) Pollock, the wedding being celebrated at Titusville, Pennsylvania. Unto Mr. and Mrs. Yocum were born four children, but the eldest, Eva, died in infancy. Sarah Alice, who is a graduate of the Davenport high school, was married August 25, 1909, to Hugo A. Briceland and they reside upon the farm with her mother. Mary E., a graduate of the Highland Park College of Des Moines, has taught in a number of schools in Scott county. Samuel Carey was a student in the high school at the time of his death. Both the son and father were suffocated in the Lincoln Hotel in Chicago, to which city they had gone to attend a stock show. This double calamity was almost unbearable to the family, who were left to mourn the loss of husband and son, father and brother.
Mr. Yocum had taken an active part in community affairs, had served as school director for fourteen years and was also treasurer of the school board and filled the office of justice of the peace. He held membership with the Ancient Order of Untied Workmen, with the Woodmen of the World and with the Legion of honor, and belonged to the Summit Presbyterian church, and its first meetings were held in the old Yocum home. His life was an upright and honorable one, in harmony with his professions and he left to his family an untarnished name. Mrs. Yocum still resides upon the old home farm of one hundred and sixteen acres of fine land in Lincoln township. She and her children are members of the Summit church and her daughters are very active and efficient workers in both the Sunday school and the church.

Bev Gillihan A SAD SCENE AT A BURIAL IN THE DUSK OF THE EVENING
By S. C. Turnbo

The dividing ridge between the breaks of Lower Turkey Creek on the north and the McVey hollow and Cedar Creek on the south is known as the Chainlink Mountains. The summit of these hills in places is narrow with sides steep and rough. As one passes along the crests of these hills low gaps and high mound like formations are seen. These Chainlink hills are timbered with black oak, post oak and blackjack interspersed with glades and bald points. At one spot the gap in the chain is quite low with scattering post oak trees and numerous flat rocks which show just above the surface of the ground, As we stand in this gap and face southward we have a view of the small valley of Cedar Creek which empties into Big Creek. Beyond this is the distant hills south of White River. To the right is a high hill covered with timber which is a part of the Chainlinks. To the left is a small spot of rough prairie which extends up to the timber that grows on another hill similar in shape to the one just refered to. To the north a short distance stands the noted Turkye Bald Knob. Further on is the hills of Turkey Creek and Little North Fork. There is a hollow that runs into Turkey Creek that was known to the early settlers as White River Hollow, which took its name from a trail that was made by the settlers in early times in passing from the settlements on Little North Fork to White River and from the latter stream to the former water course. The trail leads up this hollow and over this gap and down Cedar Creek to Big Creek and down this stream to the river. In the early days, the settlers used this pathway so frequently that it was kept beat out but at the present date it is but little used and is almost obliterated with time and lack of travel. At the present days there is a wagon way from Dugginsville to Lutie which leads up the slope of the hill ¼ mile west of this gap. Dugginsville is on Cedar Creek one mile south of here. The gap we refer to is in Ozark County, Missouri. Now let us go south of White River in Marion County, Arkansas. In a hollow that leads into Trimble Creek at the Bill Trimble place is a spring of water that runs out -of the ground at the base of a hill near the Charley Hodge place. This water is on the road leading from Peel to the mouth of Trimble Creek, This spring took its name from Allin Trimble who give it the name of "Mountain Spring" and was a great resort for men in war days. Now sets in our story. In the month of May, 1863, a number of southern men assembled at this spring to go on a raid into Ozark County. Their leader was Bill Cain who lived on Jimmie’s Creek. I am told that there were 30 men who were armed and equipped sufficiently to put up a good fight with the enemy of equal numbers. They were all mounted and when they were ready for the start they marched to the river and forded it and after passing Big Creek they struck through the rough hills and went to Pond Fork and across the ridge to North Fork and up this stream to the mouth of Little Creek. A company of mounted federals troops were temporarily stationed on Beaver Creek in Douglas County. These men were in charge of Capt. Bill Piland with Lieut. Bill Evans as second in command. It took only a few hours for the union soldiers to get word of the approach of the confederates and Piland hurried off with his men which were 26 in number to find out what the southern fellows were up to. After the Southerners had rode around a while on Little Creek they decided to go back to White River and traveled the most of the night. On reaching the ford of Little North Fork just above the mouth of Pond Fork they halted to rest before the break of day. After resting a while they resumed the march and traveled down the creek to the mouth of Turky Creek and turned and went up this stream to the Mud Spring. By this time the sun was an hour or more high. The morning was clear with a heavy dew. After leaving Turky Creek they followed the trail that leads up White River hollow to the gap in the Chainlinks that we mentioned at the beginning of this account. By this time the confederates were tired and their horses were jaded and hungry and they halted in the low gap to rest in the shade of the trees and let their horses graze. The officer in charge was careless and negligent and failed to post videts to be on the look out for the enemy. They were not expecting the enemy to overhaul them and would rest awhile and travel on at their leisure. But they all paid dearly for their idleness. The men turned their horses loose to fill themselves on the luxuriant growth of grass and they scattered in every direction. Part of the men lay down on the grass. Others rested at the foot of the trees. One man read a newspaper that had fell into their hands while on Little North Fork and some of the men were giving eager attention to the reading. They were loose in discipline or they would have been vigilant and watchful to the highest degree for the approach of the federals. They made a sad mistake in not doing this. In the meantime the company of union cavalry hurried to meet the southern fellows and when they reached Little Creek they found they were gone back to-ward White River by disappearing down North Fork and they made haste to pursue them. By some means the union men learned that the southern men had halted on the Creek to camp late in the night and they layed a trap for the unsuspecting Southerners, but they never caught them. When the federals had reached the mouth of Turkey Creek it was sunrise and the trail of the confederates were easily followed up Turkey Creek and up White River hollow on account of the heavy dew and the tracks the horses made. The officers in command of the squad of federals were cautious and kept two men in advance of them and when these two men approached in sight of the gap they heard the southern men laughing and talking. Carefully and cautiously they went a little closer where they got a glancing view of their position and condition without being observed. It was a grand moment to make a dash and charge and the two videts turned and went back to their command and made their report. Capt. Piland ordered his men to dismount and after making a detail of two or three men to look after the horses he advanced with the remainder of his men in a slow and cautious manner up the hollow a short distance, then leaving the trail and turned to the left and went on until they reached the glade in view of the confederates and halted and fired on them. We have said that the southern men were very negligent in their duty and we will say now that the federals were certainly wild with excitement. I am told that they fired 100 shots more or less from their guns and pistols without killing or wounding a man while the confederates were in the gap. With the exception of a hole shot in the top of Harve Yocum’s hat not a man was touched. When the volley was fired by the soldiers in blue it was a surprise to those in grey. The noise of the outburst of small arms and the whistling of the bullets that struck the rocks and ground near the men created a panic and a route. They left their guns and made a wild rush for safety. A few of the confederates made for their horses and succeeded in mounting them and went off on a wild race over the rough stony ground. I am told that John Copelin darted for his horse and got astride of him while the animal was trotting and galloped away under a heavy fire but not a ball touched him. This shows that the federals were as poor marksmen as the southern force were slack in being slipped up on. As the southern men scattered in their exciting rush to escape, the federals did likewise in pursueing them. Asa Yocum ran down the hill into the head of Cedar Creek pursued by the second officer in command of the federals. When Mr. Yocum had run 250 yards his strength was exhausted and he stopped under a post oak tree to surrender and handed the officer his pistol breech foremost which the man took and raised it and pointed the muzzle of the pistol at Yocum’s head and shot him just over the left eye. I am told that Mr. Yocum struggled in the agony of death a half an hour before his final moments come. The federals captured 19 head of horses with their equipments and a number of guns and pistols. They also captured 5 prisoners the names of which were Jim Friend, son of Peter Friend, John Carroll, son of Tom Carroll, Mike Yocum, son of Mike Yocum and brother of Asa Yocum, Bob Mitchell and Jerry Davis—the last named died in a northern prison.

Asa Yocum had a number of friends among the federals and when they found that he was killed they regretted it. I was told by a southern man that was with them at the time that while they were coming down North Fork below the mouth of Little Creek they stopped at the residence of Sam and Joe Piland. Joe was sick and was at home on furlough and in bed. Some of the southern men threatened to kill them both but Asa Yocum interfered and begged for their lives and they were not hurt. As usual in war when a man is killed by the enemy his body is left where it falls so it was in Mr. Yocum’s case. The body was left lying in the grass in the shade of the post oak tree *here he gave up his life. But some of the man were kind enough to tie a handkerchief to a limb of the post oak tree that hung over the body to direct the family and other friends where the body lay. The southern men did not know Mr. Yocum was killed and when some of the confederates who were running at the top of their speed heard the report of the pistol they knew it was Yocum’s but they supposed he had shot a, federal. But when the most of the retreating men had reached the river and their old friend had not made his appearance they were convinced that he was killed. On the following day after the Southerners were attacked, Harve Yocum, brother of Asa Yocum, Bob Davis, John Copelin and Tomps Copelin returned to the scene of the attack and made a search for him and Harve Yocum discovered the dead body of his brother lying under the bows of the post oak tree as mentioned. Yocum and Tomps Copelin remained with the body and Bob Davis and John Copelin went back to the Asa Yocum farm to notify Asa’s wife and children where the body was discovered and Mrs. Yocum dispatched a messenger with a blanket to put over the remains to shield them from the flys as much as possible. Mrs. Eliza Yocum, the bereaved woman, in company with Mrs. Nancy Yocum, widow of Bill Yocum, "Tine" Copelin, wife of John Copelin, and Winnie Copelin, wife of Tomps Copelin, and Jim Copelin, son of Tomps Copelin, and Lindie Friend, daughter of Peter Friend., and Paton Bevins started with a cart drawn by a yoke of cattle which were guided by Jim Copelin to bring the body of her dead husband home. It was a trying time. This awful war brought death and destruction in every direction where its influence reached and the poor women and children underwent sore trials, tearful eyes and despairing hearts, but it was war and they were forced to abide by its results. Mr. Yocum was shot near 9 o’clock in the morning and his body was found near 24 hours after his death and by the time they arrived on the scene of death with the oxcart it was in an advanced state of decomposition and very difficult to handle. They taken the body down Cedar Creek to its mouth then down Big Creek to the river where they crossed it at the Poll Clark ford and arrived at home with the body at sunset. They were unable to take off the bloody clothes and put on better ones or take his boots even but were compelled to bury the remains as they were brought home. A grave had been dug and a rough coffin had been prepared. The scene of the burial in the dusk of the evening as the dead man’s wife and children and other friends as they collected around the coffin to pay their last respects to the dead here on earth was weired, tearful and piteous. The body received interment in the cemetery near the dead man’s residence. One beautiful day in September as I stood in the low gap where the encounter took place between the two war parties I thought of the dark shadow that enveloped the hills and valleys of Ozark County at that time and I thanked God that the days of blood and death of Civil War is gone and God grant that it may be gone forever and that ties of friend-ship and love between the people of both sections of our great United States may grow closer together as time passes on.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF MRS. DELIA M. YOCUM
Who entered into heavenly rest March 20th, 1923, aged 77 years, nine months and one day.

She has joined the choir invisible, The voice we loved to hear; Sings now with fair celestials, With friends, to her, most dear.

The old, old question that every bereaved heart has asked since the shadow of death darkened the threshold of the first home, comes to bereaved hearts to-day, and as the casket covers the beloved features, and the grave closes over the precious form of the dear one, the breaking heart cries out in anguish: "If a man die, shall he live again?"

Science cannot unravel this mystery of silence, philosophy can find no clue; nature is dumb in the presence of this awful tragedy; but Jesus, radiant with hope and consolation, whispers to the sorrowing heart, "I am the resurrection, and the life, he that liveth and believeth in me shall never die!" Job said, "all the days of my appointed time will I wait until my change comes." And the Psalmist said, "I shall be satisfied when I awake in His likeness."

One who watched at the bedside of our sister and friend, as she was quietly passing away, said to her, "You are going to sleep soon, and you may awaken here, or maybe in the better world; does it make any difference to you?" and she answered, "not a bit of difference." And so she slept her life away sweetly, and peacefully, without fear or dread of the "King of Terrors," for beneath her, and about her, were the ever lasting arms of her loving Heavenly Father, and so, it matters not whether we sleep or wake, "we are in His keeping." How beautiful, how precious, how comforting the blessed truth! "He that believeth in me shall never see death!" The shadow falls, but death is swallowed up in victory!"

Delia M. Yocum was born in the little town of Mascoutah, Illinois, June 21, 1845. She was the oldest daughter of Moses Fike and Sarah Howell. She came of splendid parentage--the Fikes and the Howells. The men were brave, courageous and honorable, standing for righteousness always. The women were beautiful, intellectual and worthy.
Mrs. Yocum became a Christian in early life, uniting with the Baptist church at the age of 14. The Fikes were Methodists and the Howells were Baptists. In 1892 she changed her membership to that of the M.E. church joining with her husband, J.T. Kennedy, who while health hunting in Arizona, was gloriously saved and on his sick bed became a member of the church he loved. His body rests in distant Arizona, far from home and kindred, but he could sing with sweet assurance that blessed old hymn:
"There is a spot to me more dear Than native vale or mountain, A spot for which affection's tear Springs grateful from its fountain.
"Tis not where kindred souls abound, Though that is almost heaven, But where I first my Savior found, And felt my sins forgiven!"
Mrs. Yocum was a woman of many gifts and of a noble and generous nature, gladly sharing the last crust with one more needy than herself. She was a graduate of Greenville Female Seminary, Greenville, Ill., and for a time attended McKendree College, at Lebanon, Ill. She was a woman of fine intellect, and literary attainments; while others slept she burned the midnight oil poring over her precious books, and storing her memory with the riches of literature. But music was the passion of her life. We who have listened to that melody-filled voice, so sweet, so clear, so pure in its velvety softness, can never forget. The often said, "when I get to heaven I am going to take up music. I intend to get it all." Her ear was so exquisitely attuned to the melody of sweet sounds that she could detect the faintest discord. Often, during the long lonely nights of the winter just passed, when sleep would depart from her weary eyes, she would spend the wakeful hours in singing over and over the old hymns and ballads she had sang in other years, and at her organ she spent many happy hours playing and singing the grand old hymns she loved so much. One peculiarly sad feature of her passing was the absence of her children to whom she was passionately attached. The beloved daughter lying dangerously ill in a nearby hospital, and the devoted son far away on the Pacific Coast; thus deprived of the last tender ministrations of her best beloved! But she was blest with the care and sympathy of loving devoted friends and though, the summons came as a thief in the night, she was ready. She had remarked just a few weeks ago at the grave of a friend, the last funeral that she attended in Galena, "I am ready when the summons comes." What more shall we say? Our hearts are sorely stricken. We rejoice for her blessed exchange—yet we cannot but weep because we shall see her face no more. She filled a large place in the heart of this little community in which she lived so long, and her departure is sincerely mourned.
Her funeral was held in the M.E. church, the "White Cross Chapel", to which she was so devoted, and was attended by a host of sympathizing neighbors and friends. The service was conducted by Dr. McCormick, pastor of Grace M.E. church Springfield, Mo., and assisted by Dr. McQuary, an old friend and neighbor. Dr. McCormick was with her as she sweetly fell asleep, and had the assurance that "Jesus can make a dying bed feel soft as downy pillows are, while on His breast I lean my head, and breathe my life out sweetly there!"
The service was very impressive, beautiful, tender and comforting. The music by her special friends, and the flowers, all were testimonials of the high regard in which she was held. Her body was laid to rest in the Galena cemetery beside the body of her former husband B.F. Yocum, and of her beloved daughter, Maudeva Kennedy, who preceded her many years to the Better Land. Two are left to cherish her memory, E. Leslie Kennedy of Los Angeles, Calif., who came across the continent to attend her bedside, and Mae Kennedy-McCord of Springfield, Mo.
Dear children, look up through your tears and thank God for the wonderful mother she was to you, for you shall see her again, clothed in immortality, glorified, for she has looked upon the "King in His beauty," and so we leave her, "asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep, from which none ever wake to weep; a calm and undisturbed repose, unbroken by the last of foes!"

Bev Gillihan From "History of Hardy County, WVA 1786-1986",
no author's name was given.

"Large scale cattle grazers and feeders owned the greatest number of slaves.
Colonel Isaac VanMeter had 33 slaves in 1820. David VanMeter owned 22, John
Cunningham 23 slaves. Abel Seymour 26 and William Cunningham 41 slaves.
Dr. Charles A. Turley of Moorefield held 30 slaves. All of the more
prosperous farmers owned at least one or two slaves by 1820."

"Hardy County had a rumor of slave insurrection in 1809 and Watt, belonging
to Adam Harness, Ben, owned by Michael Hider, Emanual, property of Jacob
Harness, and Jacob Yocum's two slaves, Berry and Daniel, were arraigned for
'Conspiring, advertising, and consulting to rebel or make insurrection and
plotting and conspiring to murder the inhabitants of this Commonwealth.'
The Hardy County justices quickly dismissed all charges, declaring all the
accused innocent, except Berry who was a 'dangerous and disorderly person'."

Another bit of information contained in the pages.

"Captain Charles Lewis and his company of Virginians escorted 60 prisoners
back to Fort Pitt in November 1764. Many were children carried off and
raised amoung the Indians, some had only Indian names. Among them were Mary
Lancisco and child, Peggy Reyneck, Mary See, Margaret Yokeham, Cathering
Westbrook, Christiana House, George See, Michael See. The same day that
Captain Lewis led them on their long journey home, Colonel Bouquet compiled
a list of 88 more prisoners at the Shawnee towns on Scioto River in Ohio.
Nansey Ranock her Sister & four Brothers were on this list.

"The Indians delivered up more prisoners. George Yokeham as well as Michael
and George See, Barbara Riger, Dorothy Riger, Mary Lancisco and her Child,
Christiana House, Margaret Yokeham, Mary See, Catharine See, Peggy Rayneck
are on a list of 'Virginians of the Southern District,' that is south of the
Fairfax Line."

An Aged Farmer Hangs Himself",
Cassville Democrat (Cassville, MO), June 23,
1928, p. 1. c 3.

"G.W. Yoakum, 80 years old, a farmer living year highway 16 in Barry County,
on the county line, was found hanging in his barn at 7:30 o'clock Wednesday
morning, having committed suicide. His family cannot account for his deed
unless it was on account of his ill health." "Mr Yoakum had been in ill health for several years. Three weeks ago he became seriously ill and received medical attention. He was just able to be up a few days ago."
"Early Wednesday morning, his daughters, Misses Mary and Frances Yoakum who
live at home, went out to do the milking and found their father's lifeless
body hanging from a rafter in the barn. He had evidently climbed into the hay
mow, tied the rope about his neck and jumped off. An inquest is to be held by
the Barry county coroner. A.W. Thomas."
"Mr. Yoakum was born in Stone county, March 23, 1848, being the son of Mr. and
Mrs. George Yoakum. The father died when G.W. Yoakum was seven months old."
"Mr. Yoakum moved to the farm on which he died fifty-six years ago. He was
married and was the father of five children. His wife died eight years ago.
The children surviving are Miss Mary Yoakum, Miss Frances Yoakum, Tom Yoakum,
Mrs. Susan Boyne and D.W. Yoakum, all of R.F.D. 3, Pierce City."
"Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at Clear Creek Baptist church,
conducted by D.S. Brown. Interment was made in Clear Creek cemetery."

Bev Gillihan "Teen Yoachum Dead;
Ozark Capitalist Left No Will; There are no children to
inherit the fortune; Yoachum family historic", Springfield (MO) Leader [daily]
October 6, 1904, p. 4, c. 2-3.

A.T. Yoachum, president of the Christian
County, Missouri Bank. Died at age 78. ..."There was a tradition in Christian
county fifty years ago that the Yoachum family coined their fortune out of one
of the fabulous lost silver mines of the Ozark country. It was told and
believed by many that the father of the late Ozark capitalist learned the
secret of the hidden mine from the Indians and procured government stamps and
dies and made standard silver dollars at will. None of the persons who told
this story seemed to know that such a way of getting rich was prohibited by
the laws of the United States and denounced as counterfeiting. Men have
declared in Christian county within the last 35 years that the early pioneer
who profited by the Indian secret actually took his new money to the
Springfield land office and challenged the government officers to find a flaw
in the coin."

"A.T. Yoachum Dead",
Christian County Republican (Ozark, MO), October 13, 1904, p. 4, c. 1-2.

Augustine Yoachum was born in Arkansas Territory, near the Boiling
Springs. February 7, 1827. He was married to Mary J. Glenn February 25, 1858
who is left to mourn for him on the farm on which he was buried. ... Besides a
wife he leaves a twin brother, Sol. Yoachum of this city, and four half
brothers ... [buried in Glenn cemetery] ... a beautiful spot overlooking the
Finley and selected by Mrs. Yoachum many years ago when the farm on which it
is located, now owned by Jas. A. Wasson, was the property of Mr. Yoachum." ...
"George Yoachum, father of A.T. Yoachum, came from Tennessee sometime in 1820,
came up White River in a keel boat and settled near the Boiling Springs, on
White River in the Arkansas Territory. He removed on pack horses and settled
at the mouth of Finley. There were at that few white people here, and the
Delaware Indians were their only near neighbors. Here he engaged in farming,
run a tan yard, wagon and blacksmith shop and distillery, and built the first
flouring mill at the mouth of the Finley. He was a man without education but a
shrewd businessman and was very prosperous. He died in 1848." Etc.

was born December 31, 1831, died at Beverly, January 30, 1905. He was reared
on the homestead, but availed himself of every opportunity to store his mind
with useful knowledge. In 1853 he began the study of medicine under Dr.
William Biggs, a well-known physician living near Belington. He read with him
for about one year, and then attended lectures at Jefferson College,
Philadelphia. Settling first at Leedsville, where Elkins now stands, he began
to practice in 1854. For a year after his marriage, in 1858, he lived at the
"Round Barn" farm, now part of Elkins, but in 1859, he removed to Beverly,
where he resided thenceforth until his death. When Dr. Yokum came to Beverly
he and Dr. Squire Bosworth were the only physicians in Tygart's valley. He
was a man of observation, careful investigation, and retentive memory, and of
great force and strong character; his library was the best of his time in
Randolph county, and included, beside general literature, a large body of
medical literature, and he kept pace with his profession. Thus he was a
skillful physician, as well as the oldest physician in his part of the state.
His practice extended for many miles from his home. Dr. Yokum was also a
close student of men and of world affairs. Mr. Maxwell, the historian of
Randolph and other counties, states that he was perhaps the best posted man
concerning the early history of the county. He was interested in agriculture
and stock raising, owning two large farms near Beverly and the "Sinks of
Gandy Creek" farm. Beside a thousand acres of cultivated land, he owned wild
land. In business he was successful. He was one of the first board of
directors of the Elkins National Bank, and was an active member of the board
until a short time before his death, when ill health compelled his retirement
from both medical practice and business. In the civil war he was a
Confederate sympathizer. After the battle of Rich Mountain, in 1861, he cared
for Lieutenant DeLeniel and his wounded men, and assisted in the hiding and
subsequent escape to the Confederate lines of Lieutenant DeLeniel. After the
federal troops occupied Beverly, Dr. Yokum and others were made non-combatant
prisoners of war; from July to September, 1861, he was a prisoner at Camp
Carlisle, Wheeling island. Being released in September, he returned to
Beverly. From 1876 to 1880 he was president of the county court of Randolph
county and during this time the building of the new court house was begun. He
held the same office from 1886 to 1892. Other offices held by him were those
of justice of the peace for Beverly district, and mayor of Beverly. In 1892
he was an alternate delegate to the Democratic national convention. His last
sickness was of several weeks' duration. When the funeral was held, at
Beverly, February 2, 1905, Circuit Judge Holt adjourned the court to attend
a special train was run from Elkins. Rev. F. H. Barrow, pastor of the Davis
Memorial Presbyterian Church, at Elkins, conducted the services.
Dr. George Washington Yokum married, in 1858, Mary Catharine, daughter of
George W. and Maria (Earle) Ward, who died at Beverly, in 1900. Her father
owned the "Round Barn" farm, now the Graham-Davis addition to Elkins.

Bev Gillihan Dr. Humboldt Yokum,
son of Dr. George Washington and Mary Catharine (Ward) Yokum, was born March 17, 1860. He attended the University of West Virginia from 1879 to 1883, taking a scientific course. He then spent one year at the University of Maryland, in Baltimore, and he graduated in 1885 from Jefferson Medical College with the degree of M. D. He served an interneship in the University of Maryland Hospital, Baltimore, and has since its expiration been in active general medical practice at Beverly. He is a member of the American Medical Society, the State Medical Society, and the Tri-County Medical Society. Dr. Yokum is a contributor to medical journals. Like his father, Dr. Humboldt Yokum has a broad sphere of activity. He is a leading business man, president of the Bank of Beverly, a member of the State Bankers' Association. Beside his home at Beverly, he owns lots at Beverly and Elkins and other lands, including large farm holdings. He is interested in stock raising and engaged therein. He is a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. At the present time, 1912, he is serving his second term as president of the Beverly board of education, and is Democratic candidate for sheriff of the county.

Bev Gillihan Frederick Yocum, Private
14th Regiment, Indiana Infantry, Company G.

This Yocum family of Loup County, Nebraska begins with Frederic Wilhelm Yocum, born December 5, 1839 in Germany. He was likely the son of Henry Yocum (German spelling Jochen or Jochem or Joachim), born about 1808 in Lippa. Henry travelled from Bremen to the port of New Orleans in late 1848, and settled in Widner Township near Freelandville, Knox County, Indiana (near Vincennes). He was naturalized in Knox County on 26 Dec. 1849. The 1850 Census does not mention either Henry or Frederic.
The 1860 Census of Washington Township, Knox County lists Frederick Yocum, age 20, living with Richard Mayfield, a wagon maker from Kentucky. Frederick was also listed as a wagon maker, born in Germany. Also in the 1860 Census of Vigo Township, Knox County, there is a farmer, Henry Yocum, born 1835 in Germany, with wife, Louise, born 1836 in Germany, and son, John Yocum, born 1857 in Indiana.
Frederic enlisted in the Indiana Volunteers with the Union Army on April 24, 1861. He joined the 14th Indiana Regiment at Terre Haute, Indiana, and was assigned to the 1st Brigade, a part of the 3rd Division, under Brigadier General French in the 2nd Corps, commanded by Major General Edwin V. Summer. Frederic was a Private in Company G, Regiment 14, Indiana Infantry. Frederic was wounded in the battle of Antietam September 17, 1862 and spent time in the hospital in Philadelphia. He was wounded again in the Battle of the Wilderness, Virginia on May 5 - 14, 1864. He mustered out at Indianapolis, Indiana on June 6, 1864.
After the war, he married Mary Elizabeth (Wilhoit) Jarrell (who had a daughter, Maranda Jarrell and son, Willie Jarrell) on March 15, 1865 in Vincennes, Indiana. Mary was born in Knox County, Indiana on Feb. 6, 1842. They had one child, Edward Ulysses S. Grant Yocum, who was born on July 6, 1868 in Freelandville, IN.

In the 1870 Federal Census, they were living in Widner Twp, Knox County, IN. Frederic was listed as a wagon maker from Prussia. Neighbors included Mary Shipman, born 1815 in Prussia and Herman Brocksmith, born 1798, also from Prussia. Mary Shipman and Mary E. Fought, age 17, were living with the Yocum family. Other Yocum families living nearby include (1) Frederic Yocum, born 1812 in Prussia, with wife Louisa, born 1818 in Prussia, sons Junius Yocum, born 1854 and Frederic Yocum, born 1857 and daughter Matilda, born 1860 all in Indiana (2) August Yocum, born 1842 in Prussia, with wife Lottie, born 1842 in Prussia and son Henry, born 1867 in Indiana. (3) In the 1870 Census of Knox County, Widner Twp., there is a John Yocum, born 1846 in Prussia, with his wife Caroline and son, Henry, born March 1869 in Indiana.

August Yocum is also listed in the 1880 Census for Vincennes, Knox County, with wife Lotta and children Henry, Ada and Fred. Also in the 1880 Census for Widner Township, Knox County there are (1) John & Lena Yocum, both born abt. 1845 in Prussia with children, Henry, William, Minnie, Elizabeth and Carrie and (2) Fred & Minnie Yocum, both born abt. 1813-1815 in Prussia.
This small family traveled to Nebraska in 1873 and settled for about 10 years in Benton Precinct, Nemaha County in southeast Nebraska. About 1883 they moved to a homestead near Mason City in Custer County. They eventually moved on to Loup County, where they made their home. Frederick died on Dec. 5, 1922 in Loup County. Mary died on April 12, 1914 in Loup County.

Bev Gillihan Three Sheridan, Oregon sailors were among many Oregonians who survived the sinking of the 503 foot long cruiser USS San Diego in July 1918 off the coast of New York. It was believed to have struck a mine left by a German U-boat.
Ercel Yokum spent three frightening hours in the water before his rescue near Fire Island. The San Diego served as an armed escort for convoys in the North Atlantic. The convoys protected merchant ships from the attack of German submarines.

Bev Gillihan WILLIAM YOCOM -
There is particular satisfaction in reverting to the life history of this honored gentleman, whose mind bore the impress of the historical annals of the state from early pioneer days down to the present, and from the fact he took an active part in the development and improvement of Sangamon county. His last days were spent in retirement on the old Yocom homestead on section 20, Williams township, surrounded by loving children and many friends.

Mr. Yocom was born in Montgomery county, Kentucky, September 18, 1811, and was a son of Jacob Yocom, who was born at Brighton, Fayette county, that state, when the Indians were far more numerous in that region than the white settlers and were on the warpath much of the time. Our subject's paternal grandfather, George Yocom, was a native of Virginia and from that state removed to Kentucky at a very early day, locating in Fayette county, where he owned land and carried on farming. Jacob Yocom grew to manhood in Montgomery county and there wedded Mary Boothe, who was also a native of the Blue Grass state. Her father was from Connecticut. Mr. and Mrs. Yocom continued to make their home in Montgomery county, Kentucky, until after the birth of ten of their children, and in 1827 removed to Illinois, locating first in Marion county. The following year, however, they came to Sangamon county, where Mr. Yocom entered several hundred acres of land and also bought additional property until he had nearly one thousand acres. From the wild tract he developed a good farm and continued to make his home thereon until his death. His wife survived him several years and died at the home of one of her children in Oregon about 1856, having spent five years at that place. Our subject is the oldest of the fourteen children of the family, there being twelve sons and two daughters, all of whom reached maturity and became heads of families. So healthy were they all that the father never bad to pay out more than five dollars for doctor's bills during his entire life, and he himself never had a physician until his last illness.

William Yocom's boyhood and youth were mainly passed in his native state, being sixteen years of age when he accompanied his parents on their removal to Illinois. On the 2d of October, 1828, he arrived in Sangamon county. He and his brothers broke the land and opened up the farm which is now known as the old Yocom homestead in Williams township. He remained with his father until his marriage, which was celebrated in that township in 1834, Miss Sarah Jane Merriman becoming his wife. She was a native of Scott county, Kentucky, and was a daughter of Lyman Merriman, who was born in the same state and came to Illinois, locating in Sangamon county, in 1829. After his marriage Mr. Yocom took up his residence on a farm on section 22, Williams township, but after operating it for one year he traded the place for one hundred and sixty acres of raw prairie land and forty acres of timber land. This place he broke, improved and cultivated, but he later sold it to his son-in-law, and in 1851 purchased the interests of the other heirs in the old homestead, where he resided up to the time of his death. He remodeled the residence and otherwise improved the land, which consists of one hundred and sixty acres.

Mr. and Mrs. Yocom had the following children: George S., a farmer of Williams township; Mary Ann, wife of Perry Sapp, whose sketch appears elsewhere in this volume; Jacob Y., a farmer of Williams township; Sarah, wife of Jacob Hussey; Lyman, who died at the age of twenty years; Madison M., who is operating the home farm; Elvira, who died when about fifteen years of age; Cordelia Elizabeth, who is on the home farm and is now acting as housekeeper; Rebecca C., wife of Jesse Yocom, a retired farmer of Williamsville; William, who was killed in a railroad accident at the age of twenty years; and Charles E., a farmer of Williams township.

Politically Mr. Yocom was originally an oldline Whig, but after voting for Abraham Lincoln in 1860 was a stalwart Republican, and never missed an election after old enough to vote. He served as commissioner of highways and as a member of the school board, but never cared for office. His life was ever such as to win for him the confidence and high regard of those with whom he was brought in contact, and he had a host of warm friends in the county, where he made his home for over seventy-five years. He died on the 22d of December, 1903, and his wife passed away November 24, of the same year, both being laid to rest in Wolf Creek cemetery.

Bev Gillihan 1904 History of Sangamon County IL

JESSE F. YOCOM -
This well known resident of Williamsville was born on a farm in Williams township, May 6, 1849, and since old enough to work has been identified with the agricultural interests of the county. His father, Stephen Yocom, is a native of Kentucky, born in 1817, and is a son of Jacob Yocom, who brought his family to Illinois in 1827 and the following year took up his abode in Sangamon county, becoming one of its honored pioneers. Here he entered land and opened up a farm. Stephen Yocum aided in the arduous task of improving the wild land and became the owner of a good farm in Williams township, where he still resides, being now eighty seven years of age. He married Martha A. Council, a daughter of William Council, who was also one of the early settlers of this county. Mrs. Yocom died November 16, 1901. She was the mother of twelve children, eight sons and four daughters: William J. is engaged in farming with his father; George W. is a resident of Jerseyville, Illinois; Mary is with her father.

During his boyhood Jesse F. Yocom attended the district schools to a limited extent, but is almost wholly self-educated. He remained with his father until he was married in Williams township in 1876 to Miss Rebecca C. Yocom, who was born and reared in this county and is a daughter of William Yocom, another early settler. Three children bless this union, namely: Ida, Delbert F. and Cora J., all at home.

After his marriage Mr. Yocom turned his attention to farming and stock-raising and continued to reside upon his farm until 1888, when he removed to Williamsville and purchased the house which he now occupies. He has purchased property from time to time and now owns several small farms, which he either operates or rents. The success that has come to him is due entirely to his own industry and good management, for on starting out in life for himself he was without capital.

Politically, Mr. Yocom is a stanch Republican and cast his first presidential vote for General Grant in 1872, but he has never cared for official honors. Both he and his son are members of the Masonic fraternity and the latter is also connected with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, in which lodge he has filled all the chairs and is now past grand. Mrs. Yocom and the children belong to the Methodist Episcopal church and the family is held in high regard by all who know them.

Bev Gillihan St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church Cemetery

The cemetery is located adjacent to the church in Douglassville, Amity Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. The burial ground seems to have been appropriated by common consent by nearby residences and opened without restriction to any family wishing to use it. There are no deeds to the grounds and no established limits. It is believed that the present church buildings and some of the nearby residences are built upon sites of former graves.

Until the middle of the 19th century, no formal plans were followed in opening graves and no definite grave locations were recorded. Even today when the earth is opened, unmarked remains are found occasionally. According to revised records and current plans, there are about four hundred graves now occupied and about four hundred sites available for burials.

The oldest stones marking graves in the cemetery were quarried from nearby areas of white and red sandstone. Many of these have succumbed to the elements and their inscriptions have disappeared. The oldest tombstone is that of Andrew Robeson, who died in 1719. His footstone still bears the popular skull, crossbones, and the hourglass of the times. His family name was given to Robeson Township in Berks County.

Another stone bears the name of Marcus Hullings, one of the original worshipers of the Swedish Morlatton church. He was a well-known Indian interpreter. William Bird, founder of Birdsboro and owner of the iron works their, lies at rest here with others of his family. Eight of the George Douglas family, after whom Douglassville was named, are buried here with the oldest Douglas tombstone bearing the date of 1766.

Two of the earliest households of this area were those of the Jones and Yocum families. In the cemetery lie fifty-two members of nine generations of the Jones family and fifty-one members of the Yocum family.

Bev Gillihan BERT YOCOM,
Superintendent of the Brazil office of the Prudential Insurance Company, is well known in Clay county, being one of its intel ligent as well as one of its representative citizens. He was born in Staunton, this county, in 1874. His father, William F. Yocom, was born in Dick Johnson township, Clay county, September 14, 1847, and was a representative of one of the old pioneer families of this part of the state, being the fourth in order of birth in a family of ten children, whose father, Isom Yocom, came to Clay county from Kentucky in 1832 —the year in which the Black Hawk war occurred. Every evidence of pioneer life here existed. The forest trees stood in their primeval strength and the prairies were covered with their native grasses. Only here and there had a little cabin been built, showing that the seeds of civilization were being planted in this part of the state. The grandfather bore an active and helpful part in the general agricultural development of the community and was identified with various events which left their impress upon the pioneer history. His son, William F. Yocom, was here reared amid the wild scenes and environments of frontier life. He began teaching school when eighteen years of age and followed that profession for fifteen years or more. His early educational privileges were limited to the opportunities offered by the common schools, but being ambitious and persevering he gained by hard study and close application an educa- tion much in advance of the majority of the people of the day. Deter- mining to devote his energies to lines of life demanding intellectuality and close application he took up the study of law and in 1874 was admit- ted to the bar. He then practiced at Staunton until 1890, when he came to Brazil and was appointed Deputy County Auditor, and served until his death, July 15, 1892. He served as deputy sheriff of the county from 1875 until 1877, under J. B. Yocom, his uncle, and while he was filling that position the county records were removed from Bowling Green, Kentucky, Mr. Yocom assisting in this task. He was a member of Staunton lodge, A. F. and A. M., and acted as its master. His political allegiance was given to the Democracy and in citizenship be was pro- gressive and helpful. He married Miss Mary J. Reeder, who was born on the present site of Center Point, Clay county, Indiana, March 19, 1853. The wedding was celebrated March 19, 1874—the twenty-first anniversary of the bride’s birth. Mrs. Yocom is still living and by her marriage she became the mother of eight children, seven of whom sur- vive: Bert, Harvey C., Ross D., Bessie 0., William F., Jr., Eugene F. and Nellie M. Bert Yocom pursued his education in the graded schools of Staunton and at the age of sixteen years began teaching school. After following that profession for two years he entered the employ of the Baldwin Music Company, with which he continued for six years. He next engaged with the Brazil Steam Laundry and after two years spent in that way in 1901 he became connected with the Prudential Insurance Company as an agent. On the 9th of April, 1902, he became local superintendent of the Brazil office and has since acted in this capacity, being one of the best known insurance men of his district. On the 16th of September, 1906, Mr. Yocom was married to Miss Catherine Stewart, who was born near Morgan’s Crossing, June 9, 1882, a daughter of James and Anna (Wimsey) Stewart. Her father was a native of Newburg, Kentucky, and her mother of Brazil, Indiana. Both are still living and Mr. Stewart is a coal miner. His political endorse- ment at the polls is given to the Democracy. Unto him and his wife were born seven children, namely: Mrs. Yocom, Della, Peter, Frank, Margaret, Paul and Helen. Unto Mr. and Mrs. Yocom has been born one son, William Francis. Mr. Yocom is a member of the Brazil Concert Band, with which be has been identified for thirteen years. He has always been a lover of music and finds great pleasure in his association with the band. His political allegiance is given to the Democracy, but the honors and emoluments of office have had no attraction for him, as be has always preferred to give his undivided attention to his business duties and interests.

Bev Gillihan THE LETTERS OF HELEN YOAKUM BLACK
Transcripts and Footnotes by Sara Stevens Patton
November 1999

Following are transcripts of handwritten copies of two separate letters originally written by Helen Yoakum Black in 1872 and 1873 respectively. These two letters are among the earliest known written family records for the Harness, Stump, Yoakum, and See families. They are often referred to -- especially the 1873 (sometimes cited as the "1878 letter") -- in numerous Harness, Yoakum, and Stump family histories and are probably the basis for many of the names, dates, and locations that appear in various family histories and genealogical reports. The transcripts are presented here in full so that current and future researchers can interpret and analyze the information for themselves. I do not know if either of the original letters have survived nor how closely these copies match the originals.

Helen Yoakum Black was the daughter of Michael Yoakum and Elizabeth Stump. Various family histories give her birth date as Nov. 15, 1797 and her death date Aug. 1, 1873. She was married to E. E.

Written by Helen Black for America Ann Anderson

Michael Harness and Elizabeth Zephebe1 were born and married in Pennsylvania2. They moved to Va. Hardy Co on the South Branch of the Potomac, about four miles above3 what is now Moorefield, the county seat of Hardy Co. They cut their road and traveled by a pocket compass. It was a grant that Lord Fairfax had from the King of England. The summer before the citizens of Penna. sent four men4 to look at the country. There never was a white man there before. Great grand father Philip Powall [sic] Yoakum and great grandfather Michael Stump, ditto Michael C.5 and others shortly followed.

Grand father Harness raised 18 children6, men and women grown, nine sons and four daughters. Jacob died suddenly from being bled. Leonard married a Ta----7 and went to Illinois. Peter married and went to Ohio8. He was lame. John married Eunice Petty. George married Elizabeth Yoakum9. Jacob 2nd10 married Eunice Petty a niece of Uncle John's wife11. Adam was killed by the Indians and left a daughter12. She married Mr. Dukker. Michael was killed by the Indians and left Michael and Elizabeth13. Elizabeth married Mr. Robinson. Conrad and his wife and child all killed at one time by the Indians. All three were tomahawked and scalped: and found and carried to the Fort, and died in their mothers presence14.

Elizabeth the eldest daughter of Michael Zephebe Harness married Philip Powell Yoakum. Barbara married Michael C. ["See" inserted in different handwriting.]15 Crat married Andrew Trumbo.16 Dolly married Samuel Hornback. These last two moved to Kentucky. Michael See and his son George and a black man were all killed in his meadow while making hay. ["by lightning" inserted in different handwriting.] 17

Great grand mother Harness18 descended from the royal blood of Europe. Her daughter, Elizabeth Harness was eleven years when she left her fathers wagons on Capon Mt. and with tomahawk, spunk and steel in hand cut a road down to the river and had a fire made ready to cook when the men, wagons and stock arrived. Consequently she had the honor of being the first white woman that set foot on that lovely soil. She always wore Irish linen chemises and silk handkerchiefs. They were pioneers, but rich and knew no one and accidentally hit that land where milk and honey flowed. She had a portion left her by a rich uncle in Pennsylvania, but ++++ accept it she married P. P. Yoakum. She raised eight children five sons and three daughters. Elizabeth, John, Jacob, George, Catherine, Philip Powell and Michael19 and Elizabeth married ["Jas." inserted in different handwriting] Renick he died and she and her three children went to Kentucky. ++++ 20 married Madaline Neff.

Philip Powell married Elizabeth Mace. Michael married Elizabeth Stump 25 and raised eight children. Helen, Riley, Mortimer, Alfred, Palina, America Ann, Catherine, Adam Stump and Christopher Columbus. America and Mortimer died single six days apart. Palina married Cuthwith Stump and raised seven children, Mortimer, Adam, Leonard, Cuthwith, America 26, Elvira, Vivana. They all lived in Oragon[sic], Fishers Landing. Alfred was killed by bushwhackers. His children John, Michael, George, Denes, Henry and one girl Prue. They lived in Grant Co. W. Va. Michael and his father both killed on one place by the bushwhackers. Riley lived near Kansas City. He has five children. Missouri + Jacob, Elizabeth Riley, that is my last account ++++ is thought by some I came here to +++++ it is a grand mistake-------children which has ++++++. I have ++ hundred and twenty dollars, and was also amongst good people. They did not want me to come. They were no relations of mine, and that was the beauty of it. The interest of it would with very little labor have supported me. I could have taken the Widow's Home or I could have gone to some of my rich relations, that is people and live easy.

Now I am going to speak of the Stump family. ["1739" inserted in other handwriting.] Michael Stump was married to Catherine Neff in Penn. and moved to Hardy Co. Virginia. They raised six children three sons and three daughters. Michael married Sarah Carr 27 (poor) George married Elizabeth Wilson 28 (rich) Leonard married Catherine See (rich) Catherine married Michael Brake 29 (rich) Elizabeth married David Welton 30 (rich) Madeline [married] Solomon Welton 31 (rich) David Welton's daughter Rebecca was almost too pretty, and proud and gentle to walk on the earth.

Now I am going to speak of the Yoakum family. Philip Powell Yoakum was born and married in Europe. He and his wife were both Dutch. On coming to America his wife died at sea. She left him two children. Philip Powell and Felty. He came to Hardy Co and purchased some valuable land on the Potomac and married an Irish girl, then moved to Roanoke and raised a large family.32 He left large possessions and died under the old English law without a will. Philip Powell Yoakum his eldest son who was my grandfather Yoakum was the lawful heir to all he left; but would not have a dollar of it. I have often heard him say "Why would I take when I have plenty" His brother Felty married a Miss Van Bibber 33 in Greenbriar[sic] and was the first man killed in the Indian massacre.34 He was rich and when the Indians came he rolled out a barrel of liquor and killed a bullock. It was by his marriage we became connected with the great Boone family.

I saw John Yoakum one of my grandfather's half brothers who came from Kentucky to see grandfather and his other relatives. I saw him count out to Mother on a chest, eighteen Spanish dollars for that I-owel coverlet -that Columbus got and asked her how much more it would take, she answered, "Money would not buy it".

I will now speak of the purest person that ever came under my notice, or at least with whom I was ever acquainted. Philip Powell Yoakum, my beloved grand father. My father lived in the home of his parents until they died. Grandmother (Elizabeth Harness Yoakum) was seventy seven years old when she died.35 She dropped dead well and hearty and never drew a breath. I saw her drop. I was seven years old but the impression it made is as bright today as it was then. Oh! how I loved her and what a pleasure I in thinking over her good counsel. Grand father was ninety odd when he died. He lay sick for forty days. I have often heard him say " If the Lord was only willing". He laid down at a certain time, and arose at a certain time. He said his prayers evening and morning, and always said grace at his table. He was never known to say a word that I would not like to carry to my dying day. He never had a law-suit, he never had a dispute with mortal man. Both of my grand fathers were hunters but only with their rifles at a leisure time. He never owed a cent in his life. He was very ingenious and very industrious, and had plenty, and lived in the best had all the attention the world could afford. He was tall neat and slender, and walked to the last as straight and as light as a cat. His eyesight was strong and bright to the last. His memory was bright to the last also. There were no signs of childishness, and few such people ever lived or died. I never shall forget when death struck him. He asked, "Where is Michael?" I ran for him (my father) and he looked him in the face, locked his hands across his heart and straightened himself out and departed. Oh! this the horror of my mind. I followed my four grandparents to the grave and how I loved them and love them still. I love the turf that wraps the clay.

Now I am going to speak of Mothers family Leonard Stump married Catherine See.36 They raised seven daughters and one son . Elizabeth married Michael Yoakum my father of Hardy County. Mary Ann married Jonathan Hutton of Tygart's Valley. Catherine Stump married Solomon Harness and went to Wood County. Hannah Stump married William Dyer of Pendleton County. Christine Stump married Nathaniel Pearl went to Pickaway. Ann Stump married Thomas Bonet. Dorothy married William Ray and went to Zanesville, Ohio. Adam Stump married Polly Parsons the belle of Hampshire Co., and by her got at least thirty thousand dollars. Jonathan Hutton was very rich. William Dyer was rich. Solomon Harness was rich Nathan Pearl 37 got very rich. William Ray got very rich Ann was left a widow and remained so. Her father left her rich. Michael Yoakum got very rich.

Mr. Jesse Cunningham- Dear Sir:

I have drawn a short sketch of those from whom you sprang and herewith enclose it to you. My unfortunate situation has put it out of my power to do for you what I intended doing. I wrote my agent in Moorefield (WVa.) to satisfy all claims you hold against me, provided he was ever so fortunate as to collect anything for me. I could write you a quire of paper if I would consult my own inclination, but don't know that you would appreciate it now, but you would this short sketch. Michael Harness was married to Elizabeth Jephebe in Pennsylvania (both born there) what her mother's maiden name was I have forgotten, but had descended from the Royal blood of Europe, they were of Dutch 38 descent.

Lord Fairfax had a grant from the King of England (his son Lord Fairfax was a woman hater) he made it known among the people of Pa., that all who would go to the South Branch of the Potomac River and there settle and make a tomahawk mark around what land they wanted and the terms were almost nothing and as well as my memory serves me it was at the end of 99 years they were to pay ½ ct per acre 39. The Dutch selected from among them four reliable men to go and look at the country and Lord Fairfax gave the latitude and longitude boundaries and they traveled by a pocket compass. On the return of these men they reported so favorable about the country that Michael Harness started in the next spring time enough to plant a crop, (to this Fairfax Winchester was the nearest town) and Philip Powell Yookum was called to Winchester to report his knowledge of the river and he stated the S.B.[South Branch of the] Potomac was the name given by the Indians on reaching this country and the name was established 40

Elizabeth Harness a daughter of Michael Harness at the age of eleven years left the wagons and with spunk steel and tomahawk in hand led the way from Capon Mt. and clearing the road so the wagon could pass went to the S.B. River built a fire had it in readiness where the men got there, consequently, you will see that the said Elizabeth was the first white woman that trod this glorious soil of the South Branch Potomac, a country of which all have been so proud.

Michael Harness raised 13 children to be men and women grown, 9 sons and 4 daughters. Elizabeth was the oldest daughter, married P.P. Yookum. Rebecca 41 married Michael See, Crate Harness married Andy Trumbo and went to Kentucky. Dolly H. married Samuel Hornback, also went to KY. John Harness the first child married Elizabeth Yookum, Adam do not remember, Leonard a Hatch and went to Ill. Peter married Susan ______ and went to Ohio, Conrad married Molly M. Jacob married Miss Pettie the niece of your great grandmother Harness. His second marriage was to Elizabeth Roarabor,42 Michael Adam and Conrad were killed and scalped by the Indians and carried to the Fort 43. They died in the presence of their mother but not in the same year. Conrad's wife and child were killed at the same time and their remains were found 3 years to a day by a mulatto woman and her gold purse, clasp and scissors chain, the silk rotted from the purse and the money gone.

Your great grandfather Harness 44 raised 10 children, 5 sons and 5 daughters. Jemima married Wm Cunningham (your grand parents) Elizabeth married Michael Welton, and went to Mo. Rebecca married John Cunningham, Hannah married Henry Hull, Sallie married Isaac Cunningham and went to Ky. The two last women were twins. George Harness married Rebecca Casey and lived in Moorefield. Joseph married Rebecca Williams and went to Ohio. Adam married Elizabeth Baker and lived where Jesse Fisher now lived. Solomon married Catherine Saps.45 John married Hannah Inskeep, and lived at the mouth of the S.B. on the Maryland side of the Potomac.

My father and mother were second cousins.46 Barbara (or Rebecca) See was my mother's grand mother, consequently I have two great grand mothers who were Harnesses. Elizabeth Yookum was eleven years old when she came to this country and died at 77 I was 7 years of age at the time of her death and I was born in [17]97.

Elizabeth Jephebe was related to Wm Penn. I have now given you the particulars as nearly as I can recollect hoping it will be satisfactory to you.

Remain yours etc.

Helen Black.

NOTES:
Michael Ernst (Harness) and George Zeh are listed on land records in the Tulpehocken region in Berks Co, PA in the 1730s. Many Harness researchers disagree that Michael Harness and Elizabeth Tevebaugh were both born and married in PA.
In her 1873/1878 letter, Mrs. Black states "Leonard married a Hatch and went to Illinois." Most Harness family histories list wife as Rachael Catherine Heath, though some list Elizabeth Yoakum. Hatch could be transcription error for Heath.

Bev Gillihan THE LAST HOURS OF MIKE YOCUM
By S. C. Turnbo

One of the earliest settlers in Marion County, Arkansas, is Mike Yocum whose name we have mentioned so frequently in these sketches. Mr. Yocum had three brothers whose names were Jess, Solomon, and Jake. These four men had crossed the deep blue sea to America from Germany when they were little boys. At the age of 17 Mike was captured by the Indians and held a captive four years. At one time the Indians condemned him to suffer death by shooting him with arrows, but after the warriors had placed him on a block of wood to carry out his execution., the chief interfered in his behalf and saved him from a terrible death by shooting arrows into his body. These Indians had also captured a negro man at the time Yocum was taken. One day while Yocum and the negro were prisoners but were footloose, the negro and one of the Indian men got into a fight and the warrior bit off part of one of the negro’s ears. Some years after Yocum and the negro made their escape from the Indians., the latter finally fell in possession of Ewing Hogan, an early settler of Marion County, Arkansas. After the death of Ewing Hogan, Cal Hogan, son of Ewing Hogan, owned the negro. As long as Mike Yocum lived he loved old Ben the negro because they had been fellow prisoners and suffered together while in the hands of the red men. Ben lived until after the close of the Civil War and died at an extreme old age. In 1850, while Yocum lived at the mouth of Little North Fork and owned the mill there, he was a candidate for representative of Marion County. His opponent was Captain Henry, whose given name is forgotten. Both men were influential and had many friends which made the canvass hot. Ned Coker, who espoused the cause of Yocum, was one day talking with one of Captain Henry’s friends and during the conversation relating to the race between the two men, the latter remarked to Coker that "Captain Henry was a very nice man and ought to be elected." "Yes," replied Mr. Coker, Captain Henry looks nice enough, but he is a terrible liar." Mr. Yocum succeeded in defeating Henry and his friends rejoiced at the opportunity of sending him to Little Rock to represent in the legislature. When the war between the states broke out, Mr. Yocum sympathized with the south, but he was too old and feeble to enlist in the army. One day during the fall of 1862, he was arrested for being a southern man and taken to Springfield, Missouri, where he was imprisoned and compelled to suffer from disease and vermin until the following December when he was released. Sick and without money, he left the door of the prison house and walked and crawled all day. At night he found himself at "June" Campbell’s four miles south of Springfield. The poor suffering old man was completely exhausted. Exertion and disease had took away his strength and he was in a dying condition. He and Campbell were friends and when Yocum reached his residence, Mr. Campbell and his family did all in their power to relieve his suffering, but their efforts were unavailing, for in a few hours Mr. Yocum entered the great valley of darkness called death where there was no more fears of gloomy dungeons., starvation, and ill treatment. Ah, how much sweeter is death to the sufferer while in the hands of kind, loving friends than to have to pass your last hours while in the power of an enemy on the inside of a prison wall. Mr. Campbell, aided by his family, dug a grave on a knoll on his farm and here the mortal remains of this old pioneer of Arkansas was deposited. Thus passed away one of Marion County’s old timers and one among the best of citizens.

Bev Gillihan IN THE WILDS OF A BOTTOM ON THE UPPER WHITE RIVER
By S. C. Turnbo

We have mentioned on several occasions that the old Billy Holt farm is situated on the north bank of White River in the edge of Boone County, Ark., and that Mike Yocum was the first settler in that bottom. Yocum married Mrs. Sally Trimble, widow of Billy Trimble, and settled in this bottom in the early 20’s. He built a shanty 12 by 20 feet by setting posts in the ground a few feet apart and boxed up with slabs split from logs and made fast with wooden pins. The roof rested on rib poles and the boards which were made four feet in length were held in place by weight poles. This dwelling stood in the midst of a thick cane brake where bear, panther and other wild animals made their abiding place. Asa Yocum, son of Mike Yocum and who was born in 1819 said that he was a small lad when his father lived in this bottom. He said that one day he and Allin Trimble, who was his half-brother and five years his senior, was sent down into the bottom together one evening to bring the horses to the house which were running at will in the cane. Young Trimble was just old enough to carry a rifle. "As we pulled along through the thick growth of cane and under the spreading bows of the heavy growth of timber," said Mr. Yocum "the deep shadow of the trees and tall cane cast a gloom and loneliness over us. Just before reaching to where the horses were which were feeding near the sloo bank of Shoal Creek, Trimble who was a few feet behind me heard a noise over our heads and on looking up he saw a panther in the act of springing on me. My brother warned me of danger by crying out, "Look out, Ace, there is a panther up that tree fixing to jump on you." I sprang from under the tree like a big grasshopper and stopped and looked back up the tree and the ugly beast was crouched on a limb not over ten feet above the ground. Trimble stepped back a few paces and rested his rifle against a small tree and while the panther was lashing its tall against the limb he shot the beast and it fell off of the limb to the ground dead, never more to frighten anymore little boys."


Mrs. Jane Nave who died on Little North Fork and lies buried in the graveyard at the mouth of Brattons Spring Creek was a sister of Allin Trimble and a half-sister of Asa Yocum. She married Abe Nave, a brother to Jake and John Nave. During her old age she entertained her grandchildren that were old enough to understand with stories of pioneer life on White River. "One day," said she, "while my step-father Mike Yocum lived in the bottom where he settled which was just above the mouth of Shoal Creek, mother sent me into the cane to drive the cows to the lot. I was a little girl then and was much afraid of bears. While I was making my way through the cane toward where I heard the cow bell I saw a big bear in a few yards of me which scared me very bad and I wheeled around and fled back to the house. A big log lay in my way and knowing the bear would head me off if I undertook to run around it I collected my strength together and leaped up on the log and jumped off as far as I could toward the house. As I went over the log my bonnet fell from my head but I never stopped to pick it up. The bear followed me, but I beat it to the house and the big black beast retired back into the cane. I was so nigh out of breath when I reached the house that I could hardly tell my mother about seeing the bear. My stepfather was gone from home that day, but a few hours later I and my mother ventured out in the cane to the log to recover my bonnet and found that the bear in pursuing me and stepped on the bonnet. The imprint of his big paw was plainly visible."

Bev Gillihan AMONG THE SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL CHILDREN IN THE PIONEER DAYS
By S. C. Turnbo

In relating accounts of the first schools taught on White River in Marion County Ark. Mr. Mike Yocum son of Asa Yocum tells of 3 schools taught on his fathers old farm on White River in Franklin Township. "In the latter fifties said Mr. Yocum,"My father and my uncle Bill Yocum Peter Friend and others built a small log house between our residence and the foot of the hill for school and church purposes and after the house was completed they employed doctor Every Milton to teach a three months subscription school in it and after the school was out Tom Carroll taught a school in this same house and the next year after this Mr. Carroll taught a school in the Tom Boatright house which stood in our field above where my father and the neighbors built the school house. Among some of the children who was sent to the three schools named were myself, brother John and my sister Sally Yocum and Jake and Minnie Yocum who were children of my uncle Bill and Aunt Nancy Yocum who lived at the mouth of Long Bottom Creek and 7 of Peter Friend’s children whose names were Jimmie, Elisha, Jake, Alex, Molinda, Mary and Eda, and three of Wagoner Bill Coker’s children the names of which were Lucinda, Winnie and Reggie."

Bev Gillihan WHERE "BUCK" JONES MET DEATH
By. S. C. Turnbo

The following account was furnished me by J. M. (Jim) Yocum. My mother Mrs. Emiline Yocum was a daughter of Lewis C. Denison who formerly lived on the south side of White River near the mouth of Beaver Creek in Taney County, Mo. Mr. Denison had two sons Henry and George. The first named was a Methodist Preacher. My father Jake Yocum and his brother Bill Yocum were twins. My mother and her brother George Denison were also twins. My Aunt Eliza, wife of my uncle As& Yocum was a sister of my mother. You want to know where Buck Jones was killed during the war. He was shot on the north side of the river on what is now the Jim Shuer (Shewer) farm just above the mouth of Little North and near one half a mile from my fathers old farm on the opposite side of White River from the mouth of North Fork. My mother and Aunt Becca Yocum wife of Uncle Harve Yocum were among the women who buried him. They placed the body on a bed sheet and 4 of the women held a corner of the sheet each and one at each side and ends or 8 women in all and they carried it to the river and placed the remains in a canoe and took them to the south side and lifting the body out of the canoe and carried it in this way to the grave yard on my fathers farm where they dug a grave as best they could and wrapped the dead body in the same sheet they carried it on and lowered it into the grave to await the coming of the great clay of the resurection and in the meantime to rest from the awful bloody conflict that was raging so fiercely between the American people. It is sad to pen down the incidents of such horrors yet it is proper to prepare a history or record of those bloody deeds and the good conduct of the brave hearted women.

Bev Gillihan A WOMANS DRESS SATURATED WITH THE BLOOD
OF HER DEAD HUSBAND
By S. C. Turnbo

The sickening details of the killing of two men during the turbulent days of the Civil War was given me by Mr. Ewing Hogan son of Joe Hogan who was one of the earliest settlers on White River near where the village of Oakland Marion County, Ark. now stands. Mr. Hogan was only a little boy when the clash between the north and south occurred. In giving the account of the death of the two men he said that their names were Jim Elliot and Bill McClure and they were shot and killed in the field just below the mouth of Little North Fork and Gooleys Spring Creek, but the land where they were shot to death on was not in cultivation then but was cleared up after the war. The exact spot where they were killed was near 200 yards from where the John Due Ferry is or east of the ferry boat landing on the left bank. "I saw both the bodies in a half an hour after they were shot and they were the first dead men I ever saw that had been shot to death. Mr. Elliots wifes name was Delila. Two negro boys named Isom and Jack that belonged to Jake Yocum assisted Mrs. Becea Yocum wife of Harve Yocum and other women to take the bodies across the river and give them interment in the grave yard on the Jake and Harve Yocum farm. Mr. Elliots wife helped to carry the bleeding form of her dead husband to the river where the ferry boat landing is now and after the dead men were conveyed across the river she did all she could to assist them in carrying them both to the grave yard where a grave was dug and the bodies were put in an ordinary box together and lowered into the grave and the dirt filled in and a new mound of dirt made to show where two more victims of the war were laid to rest. I well remember" continued Mr. Hogan "that Mrs. Elliots dress was besmeared with blood that had drained from the bullet wound on her husbands body while she was assisting to carry it. This was only one among the awful incidents of murder and strife along White River in the angry days of war" said Mr. Hogan as he ended this sad account.

Bev Gillihan George Yokum Interview
(From the Draper Papers, Circa 1843)

George Yocum.
On the state road to Prestonsburg, 3 1/2 miles from Jeffersonville. Methodist, Born, Dec 3, 1763. "I think mamma said at Harnessí fort or close by." My father was married on Dan River, N.C
My grandfather, Matthias Yocum, Michael Harness, and George Stump, were the first three men that ever brought waggons down to the South Branch. They came by way of Winchester; then up Big-Capon.; Lost River; and to the mountain. Crossing over the mountain, they came to the south fork of the South Branch. Grandfather Yocum settled about a half a mile from the mouth of (the) South Fork.

Michael Harness moved down on to the main South Branch, 4 miles above the fork, or where now Moorefield is. Had a station there. Jac. Pettit, the Cunninghams, and the Sees were there. Michael Harness ((son?)) went down from his fatherís ??? to Vanmetreís fort, and was shot on the road as he was riding home. The Cunninghams afterwards lived above the Harnessí on the South Branch. What was called Buttermilk Station, was in a flat of land, at ? the conjunction of the south-fork and South Branch. The Coffmans, Hornbacks, and Cutwrights were there. Buttermilk Station had plenty of cattle there.

Captain Charles Lynch , (three brothers came from Ireland) had a fort 1/2 mile from the fork, or where Moorefield now is. We spent one summer there.

They had a powerful Battle in what was called the Trough of the South-Branch. From where the upper part of the South Branch ran into the mountain, to where it came again into fertile land, was six or seven miles. The mouth of this Trough (on the upper side,) was just opposite to Colonel Vanmetreís fort; where one Waggoner commanded at this time.

Thirty-six men had collected and started from Lynchís fort. At the falls of the South-Fork, right were one Moore lives, brother to my Lord Moore, they parted. Eighteen continued on up the south-fork. The other eighteen turned, went back, and came on down to the Trough. As the came, they saw the fires of thirty-six Indians cooking at the mouth of the Trough. The Indians ran to the bushes and the eighteen went right up to the fires when the Indians opened on them. The battle lasted all day and their guns got right hot in the fight. It was about a mile from the Battle-ground to the fort, across a bottom when the men at last found that they would send them no help although in sight. They threw their guns into the River, swam over, and ran through the plantations. When they got to the fort, Waggoner wouldnít open the gates. They had to run up to Lynchís fort and Buttermilk fort (about two miles above ours. They called this part of the South Branch, Holland. Most of the people were Low Dutch, from Holland.)

George and Leonard Reid, brothers, were killed and Dick Burns, Captain Parsons, and John Harness (son of old M.H.) were wounded. Waggoner afterwards sent for some of the men to come to the fort, when he got them there he had them whipped for calling him a coward.

Captain Job Welton and one or two Delays were killed on Looneyís Creek, 10 or 15 miles from Moorefield. Four of them, who had gone out to put up hay, staid all night in the meadows, sleeping in the hay. Just before day they were fallen on and killed by about fourteen Indians.

Lord Fairfax did not leave this country, in the time of the Revolution, and therefore did not forfeit his estates. South Branch belonged to my Lord Fairfax and was never confiscated. He sold for ninety-nine years, but the people bought out the interest from his heirs.

A company was made up by Colonel Neville, Colonel Abraham Hite (who died at Bear-grass,) and old Major Randall, who bought the lots of the town of Moorefield, and paid the Quit rent of to Conrad Moore, Manor Lord. It was Manor Lands. I was then about six years old. They distributed the lots by lot. I was chosen to draw the lots from a hat, and drew for my father Jacob Yokum, the lot adjoining the Court-House, the best lot in the town. (Mr.Coy? laid out the town.)

In 1782, I went with a company of men to the Big Meadows to find sliver. We were hired by some men who had discovered an icing-glass hill.

In the year 1781, I went down with 40 or 50 men under Captain Tiverbaugh, to supply the stations in Tygertís Valley. We passed on our way one Greggís, on Seneca, a branch of the North fork of the South Branch. Two or three days before we came along, while the old man Gregg was out hunting his horses, the Indians came to the house, and shot Greggís weaver at the loom through the window. They then came in a tomahawked Greggís little daughter, that was quilling for him. While this was doing, another daughter (Jesse Greggís sister) and the only other person at home, came in, shut the door, went by the Indian, and stood in the jam, by the fire as if stunned with of fright: When she saw what was doing, she went out again, and ran over to Paul Keeterís (3 Miles) When old Mr. Gregg came towards home, from the back of the plantation and saw the house set on fire, and the Indians with the trenchers out in the yard, eating he hallowed out, cursed them for etc. When they got there from Paul Keeterís the little girl was scalped, and crawling away from the fire. She died in consequence of the heat of the fire before, or by the time she could be gotten to his house. There were but four forts in theValley -- Wilsonís, Westfallís, Cassidyís, and the first I forget. Two days before we got there, within a 1/2 mile of Westfallís we saw them laying the body of Captain Adam Stonemaker. [He] Had on an officerís coat and Maccaroni-hat. In the evening of the day before, they went to Wilsonís fort, and were on their return, when the Indians shot him right in the small of the back, missing his friend, who got into the Westfallís fort, and gave the alarm. His horse gave three jumps before he fell off. We crossed Cheat nine times before we got to Wilsonís and Westfallís. We went in March to Westfallís staid about half the time at Cassidyís and returned back in August. We were not interrupted any after was got to the Stations.

In March 1783, fourteen men of us, with two Negro boys, started from the Monongahela; some of them surveyors; to lay pre-emptions in the Indian country. Congress had forbid such entries and when we got to Louisville, Martin Elliott and I came up to Harrodsburgh, by McAffeeís station, alone, unhurt. We started on the 1st of March, and I got home on the 25th day of July. Five of us come through the Wilderness together. About a days travel from the Crab-orchard, we met an old man alone, on foot, his head whitened with age. He had left his family in Powellís valley and was on his way to make provisions for them in Kentucky. We gave him (provision) a supply to carry him through.

On Greenbriar, perhaps, about a mile from some fort was one Bingerman, his wife, her father, and a young man. The Indians got into the house and one of them was endeavoring to tomahawk her father, an old man, that lay in the bed down stairs. Every time he went to strike, Mrs. Bingerman would catch his arm, so that he couldnít effect his purpose; till at last, Bingerman brought him a blow, which killed him, with his shoehammer. The Indians would have him all up on their shoulders, sometimes. He scuffled and fought with them until he had killed seven. The young man staid up stairs all the time of the fight. Mrs. Bingaman was shot through about the nipple of the right breast and out on the same side of the back. Mamma saw a silk handkerchief drawn through her several times to cleanse the wounds. She lived, and was a great hearty woman.

The last of the seven, that was killed, had started, with 2 or 3 others that had gone off; but when they got onto a Pine? hill in full view, about 300 yards off (in a straight line) This one showed his posterior side and Bingaman fired and killed him.

After the war closed, Washington made a tour to Western Virginia to see his lands. Returning, he called on Captain Joe Logston, on Difficult Creek, Hardy County. In the morning, when about to start, Washington asked him what was to pay which had like to have insulted Logston; but he got on his horse and rode 30 or 35 miles with Washington to Colonel Abraham Hiteís within five miles of Moorfield. Washington commended him afterwards as a brave man.

Logston afterwards lived in the edge of the Barren Was riding along near the Lick one day, when two Indian fired on him. The one creased his horse so that he fell. The other took him across the breastbone which in him projected remarkably -- on each side, and just deep enough to graze the skin on the hollow between. Logston fired and shot the little one. The other then made up to him and after a desperate struggle, he succeeded in drawing the blade of the Indianís knife through the hand in which he was just getting it, and running it into him. He now loosed he hold. The little Indian, whose back was broke, stood balancing against a tree and was trying to get an opportunity to shoot. Logston had had a great struggle and was glad to get off. (Besides, in getting his gun, the little Indian might have shot him.) When they came out the next day, the found the little Indian had stabbed himself.

David Allington was one of us, under David Tiverbaugh to Tygertís Valley, in 1781. His sister it was Nancy Allington, that was taken by the Indians and married and had three children by one. She then left them, and come home. (Had repeated wished to come, before she got off.) When she got here, she refused to go back. The Indian came twice after here, and then went? and made a threat to kill her, for not coming. Some Indian was afterwards killed out upon Licking which was thought to be him.

Jimmy Youngís wife was taken too at the same time.

These Cutwrights had a station on Stover? where Hornbackís mill is. Philip Hammond was in the defeated camps on Flat Creek. He, his wife, and their little child, were in the Company. They had undressed and lain down. He sprang, snatched up the child and his gun, and his wife followed after. His money was safe in a belt that was round him. He was moving to this country.

His pension papers were destroyed, when the Capitol was burned in the late war.

I waggoned at Bullitís Lick for six or seven years after I came out with my family. I live in Mercer Waggoned at the Lickís every fall till I got a load of salt. Sometimes they would give me two bushels for going out three miles in the night, for one load of woods. I gave $2.00 down there, and would get $4.00 a bushel up here.

One Casey that worked about Bullitís Lick was caught by the Indians and tied and whipped on top of the knob, right in sight of the Licks. The first or second night, he got away, without being taken over the river. Tullis,? an apprentice to the gun-smithing business, to my cousin Bob Shanklin between Bullitís and Mannís Licks, was taken a little before night, passing from one place to another. It got dark and they passed through a thicket of spice bushes, some being before, and some behind. I just dropped down beside the path till those behind had gotten by, then crept off through the bushes. They presently missed him, and he heard them howl and whistle round, but got in safe that night.

Two miles from Grantís Station toward Paris, was a widow and six children. The Indians came and knocked. One of the children went to open the door but the mother forbid till they should know who it was. They then began to tomahawk the door. The boys shot through the port holes and killed two Indians. It was a double log-house, and two of the children had gone to bed in the other part of the house. In it there was a parcel of tow. The Indians set the house on fire and their room was filled with smoke so that they awoke and cried down that they couldnít stay there. The family then knew that the house was fire. Part went out at one door and part at another. The old woman was killed crossing the fence. One of the girls was taken prisoner, but being too closely pursued, was tomahawked on the way. Nearly all the Indians were killed. A snow had fallen.

A little before this, they took a whole team of horses, of on Fisher. One Goodnight, got back about this time. He had been taken at Martinís and Riddleís Station. Saw an Indian taking his horse. Ran after him and hallowed for them to come on as if there were a great many with him till he made so much noise they got frightened and left the horse go.

In the spring of 1793 sixty of us went in through the wilderness choosing Captain Blueford as our leader. We went to the Crab-Orchard. The night before, they had been out from the fort, and buried thirteen in one grave. McFarlan who was coming to see Enoch Smith, a surveyor at Mt. Sterling, was along. He killed two Indians and a white man that was with them. A wounded man was carried in on a blanket between two horses. Another man that had no gun, snatched up a little girl, and carried her till night and then hid her in a hollow log, telling her to stay there till he came again. He wandered all night and in the morning found himself coming by the same hollow log. He then took out the child, (which in all probability he never would have found) and carried her along till he found his way to the road and then went to the Crab-Orchard.

Some few days before this a man named Drake, who had taken a woman (his miss?) and a little girl that called her aunt, and was coming along alone through the Wilderness, was fired upon by the Indians. Drake put the woman on her horse three times, but at last let the niece go, or the Indians would have had them all. When the took her, each Indian gave her a broach, one had none and he took a pewter plate they had dropped in the road and made her a rude pewter broach and gave her. And this made eighteen in all. In this way we knew the number of Indians that attacked the company that McFarlan was with. When these Indians made this attack on the Company, they left her behind, and she wandered off and got away on Laurel Creek 12 miles from Raccoon Creek.

In the attack, the Indians left a little girl about nine or ten years old, at the fire. When they began to kill she run. McFarlan saw itís tracks and hunted for it. She went to Laurel Creek and could get no farther. He wandered up and down the Creek without meeting with it but said he was determined to hunt till he found it. While looking for her, they found another little girl that had been of the Company. It had been carried back on its grey horse so far as Laurel Creek, and there could get no further had to stop and was found. Torrence at the Crab-Orchard, took it home and gave it to his mother, who received it with every mark of affection and took it in to raise. The first little girl (the two spoken of before are the same) had hid in a hollow log, which McFarlen had passed once, but she was too fearful it was Indians to come out, she said when he asked her. When he returned along by where she was, she saw him and came out. She was the larger of the two, and both had been out now five days. We have enumerated all of the Company, that escaped. The woman, called Mrs. Drake, lived down in Fleming.

Bev Gillihan Stone County, Missouri was organized February 10, 1851 from Taney County and was named for William Stone the pioneer judge of Taney County.

The Early History of Stone County Missouri
This is a small section of the counties history as published in "The History of Stone County."

Authentic history of the occupation, settlement and colonization of this region which on February 10, 1851, became Stone County, Missouri, begins about 50 years before the creation of the county. During this period there were two distinct immigrations, one of which was by the Delaware Indians and the other by Anglo-Saxon colonizers.

The Delaware Indians immigrated to this region about 1800 to 1808 and remained until their evacuation under governmental compulsion in 1830 to the Kansas Territory. These were the progeny of the Delaware Indians which the European explorers, more than two centuries before, had found in the valley of the Delaware River. They were the traditional enemies of the Iroquois which finally conquered them after which the pressure of both the Iroquois and the whites forced them periodically and successively westward into Ohio, Indiana, and finally into Missouri.' They lived in portions of Southeast Missouri and finally in territory now included in Greene, Christian, Taney and Stone counties during which time they built and occupied the well-known Delaware town or village on James River in territory which afterwards became Christian County and at or near the point where Highway 14 now crosses that stream. They were peaceful Indians.

After their evacuation in 1830, they returned here annually until 1836 to hunt and fish, but when the whites misunderstood their innocent purpose and a military force was sent to investigate, they quietly left this region never to return. The first known white settler in this region was James Yocum (sometimes spelled Yoachum) of French origin who about 1790 located at the junction of James and White rivers. He carried on trading with the Indians and the white settlers who had furs and peltries to sell or to barter in exchange for such necessities as coffee, salt, blankets, cloth, shoes, rifles, bullets, pots, knives, hatchets, axes and other articles of primary importance to the settler's manner of life. At that time bear, deer, buffalo, elk, beaver, raccoon and other wild life were abundant.

A trade-coin, the Yocum Dollar, served the local necessities of commerce. This coin was stamped with two words, "Yocum Dollar," and was not intended to be a counterfeit. Its size and shape were identical to the American dollar, and it contained more pure silver.4 An important historical event in this region was the tour of Henry Rowe Schoolcraft, a historian and explorer who, in 1818 and 1819 at the age of twenty-five, visited this region to study its features and its occupants. He wrote one of his books in 1853.-'Schoolcraft found these early white settlers, in the main, were not interested in agricultural pursuits. They cleared out and cultivated only an acre or so of land and grew corn for the family and the horses, and a few vegetables for family use, but hunting and trapping were their main interests. He said that when hunting season arrived, their ordinary labors even in the cornfield fell upon their wives and that "the inhabitants pursue a similar course of life to that of the savages whose love of ease the settlers generally embraced." Among other settlers, Schoolcraft and his party visited Yocum who fed them roast beaver tails. Any impression that all the white settlers in these times were interested only in a life of ease comparable to the Indians in this region would be erroneous. Many other whites, including other Yocums and Joseph Philibert, a Frenchman, went seriously into agricultural pursuits and the establishment of permanent homes, although in the process of doing so they were obligated to obtain much of their subsistence from the abundant wild life until their agricultural efforts were adequate for support. Such white settlers formed the nucleus of the permanent colonization next to be noticed.

What we can properly regard as the more permanent and enduring colonization of this region began about 1833 "when Kentucky and Tennessee sent their sons into the wilderness to open up the country near the confluence of the James and White rivers."these immigrants were the progeny of the proud Anglo-Saxon colonizers of our middle Atlantic coast about 200 years previously. They were neither explorers nor exploiters of the land. They sought no enrichment from mineral resources. They sought no higher privilege than to subvert the land to agricultural purposes and to build their permanent homes thereon, which always had been the distinct characteristic of the English colonizers. The Kentuckians generally were political adherents of Henry Clay and the Tennesseeans almost unanimously followed Andrew Jackson. In these early days, the colonists here and elsewhere in the Missouri religious groups were fundamentalists. They would not have thanked anyone for any allegorical explanation of some portions of the Holy Bible which is a stumbling block to some sinners, and possibly some saints. Divorces were frowned upon, no matter what the provocation, and a man who was sued at law, particularly upon his promissory note, was almost disgraced in the public mind.

These Anglo-Saxons needed and used the hunting and trapping predecessors as a means of subsistence until their agricultural pursuits improved their living conditions. It was a long and laborious process to reach their goal, for few if any in this hill country had slaves or any other independent means to augment their efforts, but all had large families. Their story is "the short and simple annals of the poor." These immigrations from Kentucky and Tennessee and, in time, from other states continued unabated to these two rivers and their tributaries and beyond until about all the low-cost Government lands which were desirable for agriculture had been taken. Immigrations were interrupted during the period of the Civil War, but were resumed thereafter when free lands also were obtainable under the Homestead Law of 1862. The Government would not sell land even for a church or a school site until its surveys were completed, for the reason that surveys afforded a definite description and a convenient means of conveying the land.

President Monroe on April 30, 1818, issued a proclamation authorizing the sale of lands in Missouri after its survey. No doubt the delays in making surveys tended to retard the settlement of this area; the extreme northeastern portion of the area in this county, including the confluence of Finley Creek and James River, was not surveyed until 1838. And the remainder was not surveyed until between 1846 and 1849, or barely in advance of the creation of Stone County, although long after the evacuation of the Delawares and other Indians. The 16th General Assembly of Missouri convened on December 30, 1850. By its Act of February 10, 1851,Stone County was created and was named "in honor of William Stone late of Taney County, Missouri."

Bev Gillihan An Excerpt from
OUR YOCHAM FAMILY
Copyright 2005
Joel Thomas Orcutt

Henry Schoolcraft, who passed through what was later Marion County, lent his canoe to Mr. Yochem on January 14, 1819, to carry bear's bacon and pork to the mouth of the Great North Fork River, where a keel boat lay with trade goods. Yochem lived in the vicinity of what was later Talbert's Ferry."

Some of the early settlers on the Upper White include very familiar names. Augustine 'Teen' Friend was here in 1819 five miles below the shoals of White River. William Trimble and his wife, Sallie Coker, settled on White River before 1814. Henry Schoolcraft was noted to have stayed with Solomon Yocum and his son, Jacob, during his tour of the Ozarks in 1818 and 1819."

In 1818 the United States Government made an agreement with the Delaware Indians, granting them land west of the Mississippi River in exchange for their land in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. The Delaware Tribe settled near the James River in southwestern Missouri. Upon taking possession of their lands granted by the U.S. Government, the Delawares, and some other tribes, effectively “displaced” some settlers, termed “squatters”, among whom were the Yoachums, Solomon and his brother, James, (also known as Jake, or Jacob), who by some accounts had already settled in the area as far back as the late 1790’s. As an alternative to the white settlers simply leaving they were allowed to rent bottom land for cultivation, pasture for stock grazing, and erect mills on waterways, and other industry, and allowed to co-exist with the Indians, as long as they were peaceful and law-abiding. But it didn’t take long for complaints to arise, particularly those of John Campbell, official Indian Agent for the U.S. Government in charge of the Delaware Reservation, who reported in a letter dated October 1, 1825;

“Solomon Yoachum has erected a distillery... and has made a quantity of peach brandy and has been selling it for some time in quantities to the Indians. There is a number of those outlaw characters all below him who are selling whiskey constantly to the Indians."

John Campbell called for government removal of some so called “Outlaws” from the Delaware lands, including Solomon Yocham.

Lynn Morrow, in an 1983 article in the Ozark Mountaineer, titled St. Yocum and the Delawares stated;

“Tossed from The Nation, ( The Delaware Indian Nation) in 1825, Solomon set up just south of the reservation, below Finley’s mouth on the James, and opened up a distillery making whiskey and brandy.”

SILVER DOLLARS

Making peach brandy, while perhaps providing Solomon and the Yochums a bit of local, short lived infamy in connection with their Indian “clientele”, somewhat pales on a historical note compared with the most popular bit of Yoachum, and Ozark history. While some may take slight exception in referring to the Yocum silver dollar as history, and not strictly as mere “legend”, enough has been told, and written about it to qualify it as a true icon of Ozark history. Perhaps no other legend, (as we might as well refer to it), in American history has yielded a more profitable return than that of the Yocum dollar. An entire industry, theme park Silver Dollar City, and it's off shoots have now “mined” the legend for what must surely be billions of dollars. Many people have searched away countless hours, days, months, and even years looking for the source of the legend, the famed Lost Yoachum Silver Mine. Some people believe that it is a canard, or hoax, the typical tale told often by the evening fire, usually with the sure knowledge of someone who knows someone that once saw one of the dollars, or the molds that made them, or knew of someone that knew of someone that had a map. Enough interest has been raised at various times to attract persons schooled in geology, mining, and formations, and reports of a professional nature seem to suggest that there is very little likelihood of silver being found in an quantity and quality to justify believing that a mine actually existed.

In the early 1980’s I corresponded briefly with Artie Ayres, who owned the property that the Yoachum silver mine was believed to have been on. I bought his book, Traces of Silver, an interesting read, with a pro “mine existed” content. Since then I have read many accounts dealing with the mine, and the silver dollars, both pro and con, regarding belief in either, or both, and along with what I have read, and the older members of the family I have talked with, I cannot say that I entirely believe there was a mine, but cannot say I summarily discount it out of hand either. On the other hand, I feel confident that the Yocum “trade dollar” was in fact made, and used for a short period of time. There were no banks in Missouri until 1837, and it was not illegal to coin legitimate money in those early days, and as Government money was scare it makes sense that some people would have made their own money, if they had something to make it out of. Of course counterfeit money, called among other things in those times past as the “Queer” , then as now, has never been legal.

A Guide Book of United States Coins, 1984,
pp. 8-9.
“Federal silver dollars were scarce during the early 19th century. President Jefferson imposed a moratorium on their production in 1806 which lasted until 1837. There was, however, a great deal of private coinage during this period. Coins were "by no means fabricated in order to deceive the public; they were simply attempts, and successful ones, to commercialize the newly-produced metal. They did not claim government authorization but indicated the name of the producer and generally passed as money."

Bev Gillihan SETH CAREY'S ESCAPE FROM THE MURDEROUS YOCUM GANG
By W. T. Block


Reprinted from "Escape From Murderous Yocum Gang Recalled," Beaumont Enterprise, December 25, 1977.
The principal source of Seth Carey's life was his own memoirs, titled "A Tale of A Texas Veteran," published in Galveston Daily News of Sept. 21, 1879, which is reprinted verbatim in W. T. Block, "Emerald of The Neches: The Chronicles of Beaumont, Texas etc.," pp. 158-163 at Tyrrell Historical Library. From about 1845 until 1880, Seth Carey and his wife farmed, and raised livestock near the mouth of Cedar Bayou in Harris Co. In 1859 he was also running a 20 hp. circular sawmill there, that cut 5,400 cedar and cypress logs into 1,878,000 feet of lumber, worth $28,000.

If old Seth Carey looked back on any portion of his life with something less than nostalgic feeling, it was during the year 1841 when he fell into the clutches of the notorious Thomas D. Yocum gang of Pine Island, Jefferson County, Texas.
Just another fly caught up in Yocum's web of murder and intrigue, Carey not only survived his slated assassination and dismemberment in Yocum's alligator slough, but he lived instead to finger the gang and account for its destruction. It was an episode, however, that he was always reluctant to discuss and one that "cost him in one way or another at least $5,000."

When Carey told his life story to a newspaperman in 1879, he was already in the 73rd year of his life, silver-haired and partially bald. Small of stature, he had already lived most of his life as a farmer and livestock herdsman near Cedar Bayou in Harris County. His looks and gentle demeanor would wholly camouflage the fact that he had once killed a man and had participated in some of the most violent moments in the history of early-day Texas.

Born in Vermont in 1806, Capt. Carey had migrated at an early age to Boston, and later to New Orleans, where for several months he was employed as a laborer on the waterfront. It was early October of 1835 that the first news from the Mexican province of Texas heralded the impending revolt against the Mexican oppressor and begged for volunteers and supplies sufficient to guarantee its success.

Everywhere in the saloons and coffee houses, there were speakers and solicitors for the Texas cause, and when Captain William G. Cooke approached Carey about joining the Texas-bound "New Orleans Grays," the young New Englander enlisted.

The "Grays" traveled first by steamboat to Natchitoches, La., overland from there to Pendleton Ferry on the Sabine River, and thence to Nacogdoches, Texas, where they were royally welcomed. At Nacogdoches, the citizens outfitted them with muskets, ammunition, and Bowie knives before the "Grays" departed en route to San Antonio. Upon nearing that Mexican stronghold, they then joined the main force of Col. Ben Milam's command, and on Dec. 7, 1835, helped storm the citadel known as the Alamo and wrest it from Mexican control. When Gen. Perfecto de Cos surrendered the city, and later he and his army were allowed to retreat toward the Rio Grande River, the Texans hailed the success of their revolution and considered it as already ended. Unknown to them at that moment, Mexican Generals Santa Ana and Urrea were advancing on the Rio Grande with a large army of the enemy.

The "Grays" were then transferred to Col. James Fannin's command at Goliad, and except for a quirk of fate, Carey's bones, because of the Goliad Massacre, might have been left to bleach on the prairie there as were those of most of his comrades in the "Grays." But before leaving New Orleans, he and a friend named Moser had shipped a trunk via schooner to Brazoria, Texas, and they were granted furloughs to go there and recover it.

While en route, Carey was stricken with the first attack of a recurring malady, probably malarial fever, that for the next three years was to leave him often upon the threshold of death, and Moser left him to recuperate at the log cabin of a Captain Hatch. In the meantime, the Alamo and Goliad fell to the Mexican armies, and after his initial recovery, Carey and Hatch rode on horseback to Harrisburg, seeking the main body of the Texas troops. After joining General Sam Houston's army, he suffered a relapse of fever, and was placed aboard the wagon of a refugee fleeing in the Runaway Scrape toward Louisiana.

At Beaumont, Carey was left in the custody of an old ferryman named Joel Lewis, who sooned nursed him back to health. Later, when a small company was mustered at Beaumont for Indian service on the western frontier, he enlisted again, but upon reaching Lynchburg the malady struck him for the third and last time. For most of the next eighteen months he remained bedfast and a virtual invalid, at first in the care of Dr. Harvey Whiting, and later on Cedar Bayou at the residence of an old man named Benjamin Page, whom Carey had known before he left Boston.

By the time he recovered from his last and worst attack of malaria, he had been in the Page home for fourteen months and had become an adopted member of the family. Page had already exacted a promise from Carey that the latter would marry the old man's only child, a 13-year-old daughter, when she reached her sixteenth birthday. That union would bring to him the title of Page's league of 4,428 acres received from the Mexican government. But shortly after his recovery, Carey took complete possession of the place anyway, tending its cattle herds and supervising the cotton fields, because Page had grown too infirm and feeble to do so himself.

Carey received a 640-acre bounty grant from the Republic of Texas and a 1,200-acre land certificate from his county's Board of Land Commissioners, which he soon located on unclaimed public domain adjacent to Cedar Bayou. And in 1838, he acquired valuable business property near the waterfront in Galveston. By 1840, he had channeled about $4,000 of his own wealth into improvements on the Page place, knowing that the title to the league of land would soon be his.

By 1839, Carey's troubles with a neighbor named Whitney Brittain had already begun. The initial outburst resulted from a quarrel over a dog, but long before and without his knowledge, he had already become the victim of Britton's intense jealousy, hate, and violent temper.

Originally, Brittain had accompanied the Page family from Boston to Texas, built his cabin on neighboring property, and enjoyed the same position in the Page household that Carey would later assume. And as Carey's stature in Page's affections increased, Brittain's resentment and hate mounted in like proportion until he used every means short of murder to vent his spite.

Soon transferring his enmity entirely from Page to Carey, Brittain, so the old veteran noted, "shot his cattle, girdled his peach trees, turned over his windmill, injured his cart, and threatened and annoyed him in every way." On one occasion Brittain chased him with a cow whip at a time when he was unarmed and unable to resist. He added that he would have killed Brittain then and there if he had had any weapon, but he had neither owned nor carried a gun since his days in the Texas Army. Many neighbors, including the former Col. Moseley Baker, told Carey that Brittain had insulted him publicly in the town of Lynchburg and even threatened to kill Carey. Brittain warned that such indignities would end only when Carey acquired a will to resist. In desperation, Carey went to Houston and bought a gun, and even the justice of the peace assured Carey that if Brittain's death occurred at his hand, the killing could amount to no more than a justifiable homicide.

Early in 1841, Carey accompanied Dr. Whiting to the home of a Col. Turner to deliver some medicine. On the way, the doctor admonished him that Brittain needed no additional pretext for murder than to find Carey carrying a pistol. They arrived at Turner's place just as the colonel, in company with Brittain, rode up at the gate. The latter immediately launched "a tirade of abuse and threats against Carey," who in turn drew his gun, killing Brittain instantly.

The latter's death produced no tears in the Lynchburg vicinity, and a magistrate, to whom Carey had surrendered, scoffed at any thought of an arrest or trial, adding that the defendant had been provoked beyond human endurance and had rid the county of a violent and troublesome man. But within days, the same voices that had condoned the action before the event soon warned that public indignation over the killing was rising rapidly. Some suggested that Carey should abandon the country permanently, and a few offered to buy his property at a paltry fraction of its actual worth.

The warnings notwithstanding, Carey decided to give himself up for trial in Houston, and while on his way there, he stopped at Nimrod Hunt's place on Buffalo Bayou. Hunt offered to go to Houston and ascertain the true temper of the people, and after his return, he warned that the only justice that Carey could expect would be the lower end of Judge Lynch's rope. With a power-of-attorney received from Carey, Hunt went to Galveston to raise cash on the defendant's property there. And later, Hunt gave $100 in Texas currency (worth only $25 U. S.) to the fugitive, although Hunt had raised $300 in gold coin for the property.

Earlier, Hunt had told Carey of a place on Pine Island Bayou called Yocum's Inn. Located on the old Opelousas cattle trail northwest of Beaumont, it was a hideaway where on outlaw might purchase asylum for a price. In desperation, Carey gathered up what cash and valuables he had, along with his gun and a gold watch, and in the middle of the night, he saddled a mule and started eastward toward the Neches River. Finally, he arrived at the Beaumont cabin of David Cole, who was married to Yocum's daughter, Sydna Lou, and Cole agreed to accompany Carey to his father-in-law's estate.

The trail from Beaumont led through some of the prettiest pine and hardwood forests in North America. Blackberry vines and dogwoods were in full blossom, and here and there a raucous bluejay or redbird flitted through the branches. After a few hours' ride, the pair arrived at a large log house, nestled within the shadowy perimeter of a pine barren. A painted board across the front bore the crude notation "Pine Island Post Office." Nearby was a long barn, built of rough hewn logs, which also served as one side of a rail-fenced corral and a couple of slave cabins. As they approached, the bearded, old Tom Yocum could be seen in the doorway, conversing in an undertone with a stranger, whom Carey recognized immediately as William H. Irion. Irion's exact connection with the Yocum gang has never been firmly established. Perhaps he was deeply implicated; if not, he was at least an esteemed friend of Yocum's, one who was fully conscious, as he later admitted, of the murderous activities which were being conducted on the premises.

Carey had met Irion the first time at Joel Lewis' ferry near Beaumont during the Runaway Scrape of 1836, and afterward had encountered Irion on two or three occasions in Houston. Despite the latter's association with Yocum, Irion was a respected Beaumonter in the early days. In 1838, Beaumont's proprietors had contracted with him to build a steam sawmill, which never materialized, on the townsite's "Steam Mill Square." When Irion died almost simultaneously with Yocum in September 1841, the Houston "Telegraph and Texas Register" quickly heralded both deaths as resulting from vigilante violence (which was a falsehood) directed at the gang of murderers. But Rep. George A. Pattillo of Jefferson County, upon arriving at Houston the following month, declared that Irion's death at Beaumont had stemmed from natural causes, whereas Yocum had been lynched in another county.

Carey found old Yocum to be a genial host, somewhat talkative about the political affairs of the day, and he soon paid the innkeeper for a month's lodging. He was assigned to a bunk in the large , single-room attic of the log house. On several occasions, he shared his quarters with the dusty cattle drovers who stopped by for a place to sleep and a piping-hot meal, served by an elderly black woman.

Once a week, the mail rider passed through, traveling west, and Carey was pleased that he could communicate with the Page family if the occasion to do so arose. And perhaps with luck and the passage of time, the public indignation over Brittain's killing might subside and he might even return to Cedar Bayou.

Carey told Yocum the full extent of his troubles with the law and was assured of concealment from it. But the old robber baron warned him to avoid any movements far from the house or trips to Beaumont, where he might be recognized. And especially, he was not to mail any communication to Page which might fall into the hands of the Harris County sheriff. Yocum introduced to Carey a young man. named Jeremiah "Bud" McClusky, whom, he said, was his most trusted employee and who would gladly ride to Cedar Bayou for him if such a trip were required.

During the next two months, McClusky made three trips to the Page home, carrying letters from Carey, but on his return, he always reported that Page was too sick to write, and had forwarded no message, and the clamor for Carey's arrest and conviction had not subsided. Later, Carey learned that the Pages had always sent him money, clothing, and letters, but none of the items they sent were ever given to him by McClusky.

Irion came to Yocum's Inn once or twice each week, and Yocum assured the fugitive that neither McClusky nor Irion would ever betray him. Carey wandered at first only as far as the corral to tend his mule, but as time passed, he occasionally went for short strolls in the nearby forest. Sometimes he chatted with some of Yocum's slaves, one of whom was a 19-year-old Mulatto named Job, a stock-minder, whose mother had been Yocum's cook since long before his birth.

Once, when Carey heard cattle lowing, Job took him down a wooded trail to the stock pens, where a number of steers had just been sold to a cattle drover and would soon begin the long trek to New Orleans. There he met a red-haired stock-keeper, Ezekial Higdon, who oversaw Yocum's large herd of cattle and horses and lived in a rude cabin nearby with his wife. Higdon also enjoyed a wide reputation in the area as a "broncobuster" and horse racer.

Yocum's two older sons were usually gone and reputedly spent much of their time in Beaumont, where one of them, Chris, lived with his young bride. Two smaller children often played about the yard, but Yocum's wife was rarely seen outside of the house except when she rode her elegant carriage to Beaumont. A couple of men, "Boozer" and "Wes," were introduced to Carey as being among Yocum's most trusted employees, but no surnames were mentioned, a rather common occurrence on a frontier where outlaws abounded.

The more sinister aspects of Yocum's Inn, however, were transmitted to Carey by the young slave, after the former had gained Job's confidence. Nearly all of the tales, among them Yocum's earlier association with the notorious John A. Murrell gang of robbers along the Natchez Trace and Yocum's horse and slave-stealing escapades in the Neutral Strip, had been passed along to Job by his mother.

A few decades earlier, before Yocum had fled from law enforcement in Mississippi, it was said that an aged veteran of the American Revolution had lived with him, having deeded to Yocum all of his bounty lands in exchange for care, board, and lodging until his death. The old soldier imbibed quite freely, however, and often "slept off the fumes" on a pallet in front of the fire place. One day when the old man was drunk and Yocum was molding musket balls from molten lead, the innkeeper stuck a small funnel into the old man's ear and filled his head with boiling lead, which brought on instantaneous death.

Other tales recounted by the young slave mentioned the thoroughbred horses in Yocum's stable, whose owners, usually cattlemen returning from New Orleans with fat money belts, had ridden them to the Inn in search of food and a night's lodging. The next day, the horses were seen running loose in the corral or pasture, but the owners were never seen again. And a gray mare with two white stocking feet, which Carey had seen in the stock pens, certainly answered the description of a missing Liberty County cattleman. On one occasion, Job said that he had seen two huge alligators in Yocum's slough devouring the body of a man, and elsewhere, the bones of other victims were reported as scattered about the nearby thickets.

After a few weeks, Carey despaired of ever returning to Cedar Bayou, and decided to sell his property to Yocum, if an agreement could be reached. He would then escape to Louisiana, and Yocum readily agreed, offering to compensate the fugitive partly in gold, partly in slaves, and the remainder to be several heads of horses. But first, Yocum told him, he would have to see the Cedar Bayou property himself, and determine if the title were clear and transferable. Carey then executed a power-of-attorney so Page could transfer the property, and as the innkeeper prepared to ride westward, he warned the fugitive again to remain close to the attic and not show his face outside if strangers appeared at the Inn.

After Yocum left, Carey decided to walk through the woods to the stock pens where Higdon lived, and along the way he ran into W. H. Irion, whom Carey tended to trust because of their previous acquaintance. He told Irion the complete story of the Brittain killing, his agreement to sell Yocum his property and his plan to flee to Louisiana. Irion feigned great astonishment, but with a selfsame frankness, he told Carey that more than likely the latter would be murdered as soon as Yocum returned. Irion then recounted a few of the murder episodes that had transpired at the Inn, and readily admitted his own involvement in some of McClusky's and Yocum's machinations, which had ended short of murder.

Carey asked Irion to ride hurriedly to Cedar Bayou with a letter for Benjamin Page in order to try to stop the transfer of Carey's property before it was too late. Irion replied that he couldn't because he had no money for the trip, but that Carey should not worry -- that Irion would not stand by and permit Yocum to kill him. Carey, however, pressed his desire, offering Irion his expensive pistol and gold watch to finance the trip, and the latter finally agreed. Carey then penned a brief note to Page, and Irion rode away with the gun, watch, and letter, exclaiming as he dug in his spurs, "I'll defeat old Yocum this time, damn 'im!"

Instead, the scheming Irion rode straight to Yocum's house and gave the letter to the innkeeper's wife. Then he left for Beaumont to sell the watch and pistol and pocket the proceeds. As of that moment, Carey felt that he could no longer wager his life by spending another night in the attic of Yocum's Inn. While the innkeeper was away, he would slip out of the house each day after dark and spend his nights hidden away in the hayloft of the barn. The next Saturday, the same day that Yocum returned, Carey left at daylight for Zeke Higdon's cabin, only to learn that the stock-keeper and his wife planned to spend the day grinding corn at Yocum's mill. Carey later hid out in the woods near the trail, and as sunset approached, he saw the Higdons returning with a cartload of corn meal.

As the fugitive pondered his plight, he considered for the first time the feasibility of returning to Harris County and face the legal music there rather than fleeing to Louisiana without any money. Beset with fright and unaware that Yocum had already returned, Carey began pleading for Higdon to help him in his flight, adding that he already knew a plot to murder him existed. At first Higdon scoffed at the idea, but later, as they approached the latter's cabin, Higdon grew strangely silent and appeared depressed. Later he asked Carey to remain outside while he and his wife discussed a matter of importance in the privacy of their home. While Carey waited, their muffled but upraised voices were sometimes audible through the log crevices, but always their subject of conversation remained a mystery. Finally Mrs. Higdon opened the door and invited Carey inside.

At a glance he could tell that Higdon had been crying. For a second time, Carey inquired about the cause of Higdon's depression, but received no answer, the latter only turning and staring blankly at the wall. At last his wife intervened, "Come on out with it, Zeke! It's Carey's life that's at stake so tell him!"

Higdon commenced in a slow and unsteady voice, remarking first that Yocum was already back from Cedar Bayou with the title to Carey's property, but for payment the old robber planned to substitute murder for the gold, slaves, and horses he had originally promised.

"My life and yours are both at stake if I back down, Carey," he said, "but I ain't no Judas hunting thirty pieces of silver. Yocum made me promise to take you tomorrow morning to a swamp, about seven miles from here, under the pretense of hunting the mule you have running loose. He, his son Chris, and Bud McClusky will be waiting there. If I do not choose to see you murdered, I am to pretend to see a deer and ride away, while they kill you and throw you into the slough with the alligators. My payment for playing Judas is to be your mule, a gun worth about $100, and a good race horse."

Relieved that he had finally found some one he could trust, Carey proffered a solution that he thought might get Higdon temporarily off the hook. Unknown to either Yocum or Higdon, Carey's mule was in the nearby woods, hobbled and grazing, for he long foreseen the possible need for a quick getaway. And about four miles south of stock pens, there lived an old farmer, named E. C. Harris, who raised and cured tobacco, and Carey had already visited him on two occasions to buy the fuel for his habit.

"Early in the morning," Carey suggested, "tell Yocum that I left before daylight to buy smokes at old Harris' place, but will be back by 10 o'clock, and we'll go looking for the mule then. He'll believe that 'cause he knows I'm a slave to tobacco. I'll leave my coat and knife at your place and that oughta convince him that I'll be back."

" Where are you going?" Higdon inquired.

"I guess back to Cedar Bayou and face up to the law. There's plenty witnesses for my defense and maybe I can get a fair trial."

He then shook hands with Higdon and retreated to the woods to find his mule, fully-prepared to rise before daylight and follow the westbound sun toward Cedar Bayou. Along the way he planned to stop off at the residence of a certain Liberty County rancher and tell him where he could find his missing brother's mare with the stocking feet.

As directed, Higdon also rose early the next day, and he and his wife rode through the woods to Yocum's Inn. Old Yocum, his son Chris, and Bud McClusky, each of them heavily armed, stood by the rail fence of the corral as they talked. When Higdon drove up, Yocum demanded in an upraised voice, "Where's Carey, and when are you two heading for the thicket?"

"In two or three hours. Carey left early to go to old Harris' place for smokes, but he'll be back by ten."

"You didn't follow my order!" old Yocum retorted.

"Don't fret over it!" Higdon replied, noting the old killer's piercing eyes and stern facial expression." Carey'll be back soon, and your plan will still carry through. Why, he even left his coat and knife at my place, and you know he wouldn't leave without those. Ask my wife if you don't believe me!"

Old Yocum then glanced at the young woman and seemed convinced after her affirmative nod. "Never mind!" he answered, "I'll change the plan, but you shore cheated yourself out of a fine mule, a gun, and a fast stallion."

He then turned to his son, Chris, and Bud McClusky and directed them to hide out along the trail south of the stock pens. When they sighted Carey, they were to shoot him immediately and haul the body away to the alligator slough. After Zeke and Tabitha Higdon returned to their cabin, they hastily loaded their sparse possessions on the mule cart and lit out toward the west, avoiding the south trail where the killers would be hidden.

In the meantime, Carey arrived in Liberty County and told the rancher about the murder outpost on Pine Island Bayou, spicing his story in places with details about the alligator slough and the skeletons that lay scattered throughout the thickets. And as he rode on, the cattleman began rounding up a posse of friends, a band of vigilantes that eventually would reach 150 men in size. After arriving at the Page residence on Cedar Bayou, Carey surrendered to Judge Moreland, who bound him over, on a $500 bond signed by Page and Dr. Whiting, to the next session of the district court. And later, after a dozen witnesses appeared in his defense, he won a rather easy acquittal based on his justifiable homicide plea.

After the trial, he hurried back to Beaumont and having located Zeke Higdon, who accompanied him back as a witness, Carey appeared before Sheriff Robert West to state his complaint against Yocum and seek the return of his swindled property. But he soon learned that the infamous inn and its outbuildings had already been burned by the 150-man posse of Regulators, led by the Liberty County rancher.

Forewarned in some manner, Yocum's gang of cutthroats had scattered in all directions, and his wife, children, and slaves had been driven from Jefferson County. Some days later, after the old murderer had been tracked to the cabin of a relative on Spring Creek in Montgomery County, the posse dispatched old Yocum to the lower regions with five bullets through the heart.

Bud McClusky escaped to the Neches River bottomlands, and when last reported, he was recognized as he rode across Calcasieu Parish, La., on horseback. And a few weeks later, Chris Yocum was found hanging one morning from an oak limb on the courthouse lawn in Beaumont. As an added token of affection, his vigilante executioners had driven a 10-penny nail into the base of his skull. While lynch justice was usually regrettable and always illegal, somehow it seemed a fitting end for the murderous villains who had brought so much grief to so many trusting patrons.

Frontier intrigue and derring-do passed from Seth Carey's life after 1841. As he had promised old Page, Carey married the daughter on her sixteenth birthday, and later the couple reared a large family on Cedar Bayou. Except for a couple short periods of residence elsewhere, he spent his surviving years tending to his cattle herds and cotton fields on the bayou, and running his sawmill. Long a prosperous farmer, Seth Carey died, nearing his eightieth birthday, still delighted that Providence had seen fit to deliver him from the clutches of the infamous Yocum gang of assassins on Pine Island Bayou.

Bev Gillihan Yocum Cemetery
Congress, Ohio

Yocum Cemetery is located at the northeast corner of OH-539 and Pleasant Home Road outside Congress, Ohio (Congress Township, Wayne County). The coordinates are 40° 54' 56.24" N, 82° 3' 5.54" W.

There are only four gravestones standing in Yocum Cemetery. It is an extremely small family plot that is no longer active. Many old cemeteries like this one are forgotten, but that's not the case with Yocum Cemetery. It is extremely well taken care of, there is even a flag on John Yocum's grave, who was a Revolutionary War veteran.

Bev Gillihan CYRUS M. YOCUM, lumber dealer and contractor, at No. 1159 Stanton Boulevard, Steubenville, O., is one of the representative business men of this city. He was born in Jefferson County, Ohio, in 1852, and is a son of David Yocum, one of the early settlers and a farmer in Jefferson County for a number of years.

Cyrus M. Yocum remained on the home farm until eighteen years of age, and then learned the carpenter trade at Steubenville and worked as a carpenter for about seven years, after which he went into roofing and contracting, which he continued until 1901, when he turned the roofing interest over to his son, Floyd Yocum, who still continues it. Mr. Yocum then gave more attention to other lines and has sucessfully carried on a large lumber, together with a general contracting business. ever since. He takes an active interest in local politics and his public spirit as a citizen and his stability as a man have frequently caused his election to responsible civic offices. He has served usefully in the city council and was a member of the board of public works when the new water works system was installed, a most desireable public utility, with a plant not excelled in any other city in eastern Ohio.

In 1872 Mr. Yocum was married to Miss Margaret Culp, of Jefferson County, and to them were born the following children: Floyd M.; Mary, who married John Moreland, of Jefferson County; Daisy, who married Percy H. Harris, of Steubenville; Birdie, who married Rev. E. D. Salkeld, a minister of the Christian Church, located at Lakewood, O.; Cyrus M., who is pastor of the Central Christian Church at Cincinnati; Albert B., who resides at Steubenville; Margaret, who married Harry S. Welch, of Steubenville; and Gilbert, Elsie, and Florence, who reside at home. Mr. and Mrs. Yocum are members of the Steubenville Christian Church, of which he is a trustee. He belongs to the Royal Areanum and to the Odd Fellows.

Bev Gillihan FLOYD M. YOCUM, who resides in a beautiful buff brick house at 505 North Seventh Street, Steubenville, is prosperously engaged in the roofing business. He was born in this city in 1873, and is a son of Cyrus M. Yocum, a general building contractor here. He was graduated from the high school in 1892 and then took a commercial course at the Steubenville Business College. Upon completing the course he succeeded his father in the roofing business, in which he has since been engaged. He is also a dealer in all kinds of roofing materials and has spacious yards conveniently located at No. 616 Logan Street. He has been successful as a business man, and has also found time to display some useful activity in civic affairs, for five years serving on the Steubenville Board of Education and has always been found ready to respond to the call of duty whenever it has been a question of promoting the moral or material welfare of his adopted city. For some years he has been identified with the order of Modern Woodmen and also with Lodge No. 1, Knights of Pythias.

April 28, 1898, Mr. yocum was married to Miss Sarah D. Bair, who died in November, 1899. In 1901 he married Miss Mary Katherine Lloyd, of Steubenville, O., and of this union there are three children: Katherine V., Floyd H. and Julian Giles. Mr. and Mrs. Yocum are members of the Christian Church, the former having served as one of its official.

Bev Gillihan JOHN YOCUM, who has been engaged in the ice business for more than forty years, is a venerable and highly respected citizen of Steubenville. He was born in Jefferson County, Ohio, April 19, 1831, on what is known as the Ephraim Cable farm in Island Creek Township. His father, also John Yocum, was born in Reading, Pa., and came among the early settlers to Jefferson County. He married Sarah Davis and they became parents of eleven children, six daughters and five sons, of whom three are now living: Hannah Priest, of Columbus, O.; John; and Silas, of Steubenville.

John Yocum, subject of this record, was reared in Island Creek Township and still owns the old home farm there. Early in life he conducted a milk business and later was engaged as a marble polisher for five years. He then embarked in the ice business which he has carried on with unvarying success for over forty years. Mr. Yocum was married in 1853 to Miss Eliza Whitson, who died in 1892, leaving six children: Mrs. Josiah Myers; Charles B.; Anna, wife of William E. Bevan; John W.; Louisa, widow of Edward McCormick; and Walter W. Yocum. Mr. Yocum was married a second time in 1897, to Miss Belle Jacobs, who was born in Virginia and is a daughter of David Jacobs, who removed from Virginia to Brooke County, West Virginia, where he engaged in farming until his death. Mr. and Mrs. Yocum are devout members of the Christian church.

Bev Gillihan "The name of Yoakum is believed to be an Americanization of the German baptismal or personal name of Joachim.-----
Early seated in Germany, Silesia, Zealand, Sweden, Alsace and other parts of continental Europe, the Joachim family, from which the Yocums of America are believed to be descended, belonged, for the most part at least, to the landed classes. The German family of Joachim of Joachimsburg, an ancient and honorable line, were represented in the year 1747 by Johann Ignace Joachim, an officer in the German army; while the Jocham of Jochamsburg family of Alsalce were represented in 1754 by Johann Ignace Jocham, who was one of the Knights of the Holy Roman Empire. However the records of these lines are only fragmentary.
It is probable that the first of the name in America were of comparatively humble origins and that they were of that large group of German immigrants who adopted their surnames after or when coming to this country. ------they had much in common only the fact that their progenitors bore the Christian name of Joachim. However, this is purely conjecture, since the ancestry of the immigrants of that name has not been established."
"The coat of arms borned by the ancient German family of Joachim--is described as follows: (Rienstap, Armorial General, 1884):
Arms: "quarterly: 1 and 4 gules a lion or the lion of the first quarter contourne; 2 and 3, azure a coronet, or, somme three ostrich plumes argent.
Crest: "The furnishings of the second quarter."
Lambrequins: "Dexter, or gules, the sinister argent and azure."

Information on this is from the book, "Jachim, Joachim, Jochems, Yoakum, Yocom, Yocum, Yokum And Allied Families" by H.C. Smith.
