Photo was taken in Neosho Falls, perhaps in 1939.

Cousins Norman, Frank and Max YohoOn Labor Day weekend 2001 we attended a Yoho family reunion in Burlington, KS. Max was reintroduced to cousins Norman and Frank, grandchildren of his grandfather, George Yoho's, brother, John. Norman's father was Alfred, Frank's father was William, sons of John. Max's father was Lloyd and his grandfather was George, brother of John. George and John's father was Benjamin, the common ancestor, buried at Toronto, KS.

Norman, Frank are first cousins, and regularly attended Yoho reunions. Max, Norman and Frank were all born in 1934. (Frank passed away in May 2004.)

Max last attended a Yoho reunion in Neosho Falls in 1939, when all three boys were around five years of age. Max found the black and white photo above, which he believes is from that event.

more YohosThe photo at left is of Barbara Patterson Barnes (daughter of Vella Yoho Patterson), Donna Yoho (daughter of Lloyd Yoho, and Max's sister) and Mary Lee Yoho (daughter of Alva "Shack" Yoho). These girls are first cousins.Max Yoho and his Civil War sword

Barbara now lives in Iola. (We also visited with Mary Lee, who still lives on a farm very close to Neosho Falls, but I didn't take a photo. Sorry.) Donna died many years ago.


The photo at right, Max Yoho, taken during the celebration of the centennial of the founding of Topeka (Dec. 1856), shows Max in a frock coat borrowed from a friend Tecumseh, a hat he doesn't even remember, a G.A.R. pin, and Max's Civil War era sword. The photo reflects his love of history, particularly Civil War and it's edged weapons.
