Yost Yoder, Sr
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1765
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1792
Stonycreek Township
Somerset County
Pennsylvania, USA

Yost's father, "Schweitzer" Christian Yoder, moved his family west to the "Glades" in what became Somerset County, when Yost was 11 years old. Yost married Magdalena Rickenbach about 1786 and she bore him 5 children before his early death at age 27. She then married Michael Troyer and bore him 4 children before she is said to have died at Walnut Creek in Holmes County, Ohio and was buried in the Troyer Valley Cemetery. Yost was a farmer and a preacher in the Glades Amish Mennonite Congregation and is probably buried in the Old Yoder Cemetery on his father's homestead, but there is no legible marker.
