I've been told by my grandmother that the name Yoho came from the Indian tribe, but after looking at this forum, I am doubting what she said.
I am told that my ancestor, Elizabeth Stafford Hawkins (b 1852 in Ohio) was the daughter of Samuel Stafford (b 1822 in VA) and a woman named Emily (b 1827 in OH). I'm told that Emily was the daughter of Thomas Yoho and that he was a Yoho Indian. I guess that's wrong, but that wouldn't surprise me. Can anyone fill in some of these blanks? Thanks!
