Anne: Eva Catarina "Catherine" (YOHO) LEMLEY is my great-great-great-great grandmother. Most of these stats come from other on-line data and need to be documented. I have that she was born 26 May 1741 and Died 5 Nov 1825 in Greene County PA. She married George LEMLEY who was born C 1741 in ? Mannheim, Germany and Died 1 June 1813 in Greene County PA. Their daughter Catherine LEMLEY Born in Belmont County, Ohio and Died in Monroe County, Ohio, Married Woodman OKEY who was Born 9 May 1792 in Delaware and Died 28 June 1866 in Monroe County, Ohio. I believe they are both buried at Swazey Cemetery, near Gibson's Station, Ohio. Their son George OKEY Born April 15, 1816 in Monroe County, Ohio Died Aug 28, 1886, Married #1 Elizabeth Rucker who Died 30 Jan 1849 (daughter of John and Sarah RUCKER) and #2 Rachel MANN. Their son Charles OKEY was Born 10 Jan 1847 in Monroe County, Ohio, Died 12 April 1912 Boone, Iowa and Married 1869 (Nancy?) (Anna?) Jane Brister who was Born 8 Mar 1849 in Woodsfield, Ohio and Died 6 Jan 1947, Boone, Iowa. Their son George William OKEY Senior was born 23 Feb 1873, Monroe County, Ohio, Died 23 Oct 1960 Denver, Colorado and Married Josephine HANSON Born 15 June 1875 Boone, Iowa, Died 13 Feb, 1944 Denver, Colorado (She had pneumonia during WW II and died for lack of penicillin what had just been developed but was being used for service personnel only). Their son George William OKEY Junior (my DAD) was born 30 Aug 1911 Des Moines, Iowa Married Lola SCOONOVER 14 April 1933. She was born 15 Mar 1912. They are both gone now, Mom in 1987 and Dad in 1991, just short of his 81st birthday. From the internet: Eva Catarina is the daughter of Johannes YOHO (the name was JOHO) in Germany and Sussana LAU (daughter of Theobald LAU). Johanne's parents were Johannes JOHO and Sussana GELKER. My husband Richard AMOS and I have two daughters and one son. Our oldest daughter (Kathleen Michelle) passed away in 1998 from breast cancer. She was married to James REED and they have Melissa Ann and Michael James. Melissa just had a baby girl and named her Michelle Kathleen SESSUMES. Mike is 13. Christine Lynn AMOS is married to Dale DePaepe and has two sons by her first marriage to William Charles MARSHALL--Andrew Wayne MARSHALL and Aaron William MARSHALL. If I can be of any help, please let me know. Romy
