Jeremiah and Jane Yoho

Jane Yoho came into an inheritance about the time she married Jeremiah Yoho. With her money and their hard work and good management they became well off. They owned much hill land and rented large acreages of Ohio River bottom land and raised corn on it. The grandfather of Denver Yoho, Charles Yoho, said his father had as many as 40 one horse cultivators plowing corn in one field and when they finished the field they started again. This was in Mason county, WV. Later he rented a large field in Gallia county, OH. They also had coal mines and a large freighting business. For several years there was a Yoho, OH postoffice on their property.

Jane outlived Jerry and the real estate went to Adaline when Jane died. I doubt if there was much money to be inherited. Adaline married John Swindler. Denver Yoho's two oldest aunts and his father thought well of the Swindlers. His grandmother named two of her daughters, Vesta and Nellie, which were the names of two of the Swindler girls also. Denver wasn't sure if they were named for the Swindler girls or whether Vesta and Nellie were popular names at the time.

NO_ISSUE: Jeremiah and Jane Yoho had no children of their union.
