Yoho, Peter

Peter Yoho -- The subject of this sketch was the second son of a family of nine children of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob and Rachel Yoho, all of whom having preceding him to the great beyond, expect two sisters, Cynthia and Mrs. John Tucker.

He was born near Kennonsburg [OH] on the 24th day of September, 1841 and died about 11:30 A.M., March 4, 1920 at his home on the farm near Mt. Ephriam, being seventy-eight years, five months and ten days old. He was united in marriage to Elizabeth Stevens on December 23, 1869 and to this union were born children, Mary C. having died in infancy. He leaves his death, his wife, one son, John W., Mrs. Martha Gregg of Akron, Mrs. Anna Danford of the home, also three grandchildren and host of other relatives and friends.

Well does anyone having had personal acquaintance with Mr. Yoho know that he was a kind and loving husband and father, an honorable and upright individual and of whom all his neighbors held in high esteem, and by his departure the neighbor has lost a citizen with a standard to which many might well be proud to have attained and which will greatly missed, as he was both a contributor to its welfare and to the church as well, and in his life do we find what the world would designate as a home man by his presence, always being being found there expect when duty called him away. But now the friends are brought to say feel as well that.

A precious one from them is gone,
A voice they loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in their home
Which never can be filled.
--- a neighbor.
(Wed. 31 March 1920 Noble County Leader, Caldwell, Ohio, Furnished by Terry Willis)
