Hello, Cousin!

I believe that your great-grandfather, Wallace (Wally) Yoho, was my great-uncle! Wallace's father and mother were Peter and Mary Kysor Yoho of Mineral Wells, West Virginia. My grandmother's name was Gladys Marie Yoho Longwell of Mineral Wells, and she and Uncle Wally were brother and sister. Gladys died in 1928, at the age of 21 (bronco pneumonia), with her infant in her arms, who died within minutes of her death. Gladys's only daughter, Mary Grethel Longwell, was my mother (Mary Grethel Nicholas), who died in 1978. My father is Sidney Lee Nicholas.

I suppose that this information is a little too late for your research project, and I apologize for that. I'm pretty new to the Internet. Anyway, I hope that this helps you with some family history, and I hope that I have the right branch of the family! I know that Uncle Wally did have a son named Bob. Please say hello to him for me. I was very close to Uncle Wally's brother, Uncle Ernest Theo Yoho (and Aunt Edith Yoho), my whole life, up until his death, and I am very close to Barry, his son, and his family.

I also have two brothers, Greg and Jeff. See ya', Cuz!
