I'm not researching YOHO, but thought this info may help someone. From my book 1891 "Biographical History of Pottawattamie County, Iowa, a bio for JOSEPHUS KIRBY (b. Warren co, IL, 1858) states that Josephus married May 30, 1882 to CLARA BELLE YOHO who was born in Fulton co, Illinois, daughter of JASPER and MARY E. (COLLINS) YOHO. Jasper was the eldest son of THOMAS and ELIZA JANE YOHO and was born at Mansfield, OH, May 25, 1837. Jasper Yoho married Mary E. Collins Dec 17, 1861, and had children CLARA B., DORA A., and WILLIAM J. Jasper died Oct 15, 1871. Mary E. (Collins) Yoho was born in Hancock Co, IL, Feb 21, 1843, and was still living at the time the bio was written in 1891. I hope this helps someone. If you want the entire bio for JOSEPHUS KIRBY with the YOHO info, please e-mail me directly as I do not visit this site normally.
