Death: Apr. 3, 1762

Yost was "the immigrant" whose prolific Harbaugh descendants are too numerous to count and are located all across the United States. He was born in Germany around 1700, and set sail to America with his three sons in the 1730's. The first known deed for one hundred acres of land was signed in 1739 in Maxatawny Township, Pennsylvania. The acreage was located midway between Reading and Allentown. In about 1743, Yost moved to Kreutz Creek, York County, Pennsylvania. According to the "Harbaugh History", by Cora Bell (Harbaugh) Cooprider: "Yost was a pious person. He loved the church and brought up his chldren in it. He helped to found the church at Kreutz Creek, which was near his homestead, an organization which still exists. He was a man of stout physical frame, energetic spirit, and great courage." The name of his first wife is unknown; Yost had six sons by her, the first three born in Europe: George; Ludwig; Jacob; John; Henry;and Yost. By his second wife, Maria Elizabeth, Yost had four children: Leonard; Mary Elizabeth; Anna Margaret; and Anna Catharine.
