(Not to be confused with Fernett Yocam who was her aunt, and who married George Bluford Funderburk.)

Fernette Yocam was born in Marshall Township, Platte County, Missouri - just northwest of Bean Lake - on August 9, 1869; she was the 6th of 13 children of George Washington Yocam and Susan Jane Funderburk Yocam. Fernett lived two years, four months and eight days, dying on December 17, 1871. She was buried with many other relatives - including parents, paternal grandparents, and siblings - in the little Yocam cemetery northeast of her home in the Missouri River bluffs near the Platte-Buchanan county line. No stone for Fernett has been found in the long-abandoned cemetery, but cemetery records indicate her burial here.
