The followin is a caption under a family picture in the 1996 Yoho Newsletter that includes a Colonel Yoho (Colonel being his actual name) as a very young boy:

The parents and brothers of Ona Yoho Wood, Jacksonburg, West Virginia. L to R: Ida Belle Moore Yoho (Ona's mother), Veil Yoho (Ona's brother), John R. Yoho (1873-1963)(Ona's father), Colonel Yoho (Ona's brother) and Island Yoho (Ona's brother). Photo taken circa 1902, Steel Run, Wetzel County, West Virginia. John R. Yoho was the son of Richard Cook Yoho (1847-1930) and Rachel Ann Blake Yoho. John's grandparents were Lewis Yoho (1791-1875)and Elizabeth Cook Yoho. Photo courtesy of Ona Wood Yoho and Denver Yoho, Gallipolis Ohio.

In the picture, Colonel Yoho appears to be about 4 years old. Based on further info in my files, Colonel's father is John Randolph Yoho who died on 28 Feb., 1963 at Wileyville, WV. Ida died on 24 April, 1948. John's siblings are: William Ellsworth, Charles, Lydia, James Lee, Chalence and George Thomas.

If this turns out to be the Colonel you are interested in, I have more info for you.

I tried to reach you by e-mail but failed.

Good luck, Hugh Yoho
