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

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

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

Hi Vivian,

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

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

Do you know of any DNA results?

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

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

Rachel Sisk Clark Yoakum
Greetings Ms. Vivian Yoakum
Thank you so much for the work you have done on our genealogy. I'm related as follows:
John Clark & Ellender Sisk
Isaac & Rachel Sisk Clark
Jess Franklin Yoakum & Martha Morrow
Simon T Yoakum & Nancy Annis Jones
Delphia Mae Yoakum & Dave Roberts
Maedeen Roberts & Julius High
My Father & My Mother

I am responding to the question of American Indian blood. My grandmother has always told stories of our Cherokee roots. I have cross checked the family names against the Western & Eastern Cherokee Rolls. Although, I have not found any Sisk or Yoakum surnames, there are many Clark and Jones surnames. I even found a John Clark on the Emigration Roll of 1817. At this time, I can not say if it is the same John Clark. However, I know that we can not assume that American Indian people didn't have 'white' surnames. I also know that many American Indian people claimed their 'white' blood in order to own property and attempt to escape persecution. Do not be discouraged in the process of your journey.

Doug Bodkin
Henry Gross/Groce
Hi Vivian:

My name is Doug Bodkin. My mother was Dora Fanchon Groce, and her grandparents were Henry Groce and his second wife, Nancy Caroline Cunningham, of Spartanburg County, SC. Henry's first wife was Susan Thomas, and he had children from both marriages.

Henry was b. 1827 in NC, and I believe he was related to the Henry L. Gross of Lincoln County. Henry b. 1827 was a neighbor (near Pauline, Spartanburg County, SC) to Joseph Groce, Findagrave #99850607, who was b. 1805 in NC as well.

I believe Joseph and my Henry were at least cousins, and possibly brothers, because one of Joseph's descendants and I are a DNA match.

I am hoping that you have information on my Henry and his neighbor and relative Joseph, and how they may be related to Henry L. Gross/Groce b. 1722 in Lincoln County. I am anxious to hear your reply.

Sincerely, Doug Bodkin

Benjamin Yoakum photo
Hi Ms. Yoakum,

We are publishing a book on the history of the built environment in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas and want to include a portrait photo of Yoakum in our chapter on the building of the 1904 railroad to Brownsville. We're interested in the portrait of Yoakum located at the top of your entry on him. We would need a digital scan of the actual print; it needs to be about 1MB to be of publishable quality. You can view our website at May we send you the relevant paperwork? You can reach me at

Many thanks,
Lori Vermaas

Re: Voepel
Hi Vivian, I sent you a message on FB but fear it's in your "other" folder. Caroline and Howard Voepel were my great grandparents and it appears you knew them as well so was just hoping to touch base with you :) Regards, Robin (Bross) EL-Hachem

Hi Vivian, long time no 'see'. I hope you are well. This is just to let you know that I have added photos to the memorials of Howard and Maggie Yoakum in Inglewood Park Cemetery. There was a photo request for Maggie.

I still keep my eyes open for Yoakums!

Take care,

Yoakum Family
Vivian, your last name is Yoakum and you have done a wonderful job of managing Yoakum memorials on Find A Grave. I am wondering if you would be willing to help me answer some of the many questions I have about the Yoakum branch in my wife's family tree and the Yoakum branch in my family tree. She is from Tennessee and I am from Oklahoma and yet I can trace ancestors on both sides to Isaac Yoakum (1778-1857). I would be most grateful if you could respond to me at Thank you for your time, David Lesch.
