I have recently discovered a land grant deed for my gggrandfather in Monroe co OH. On this deed it gives his middle name as Yoho. I knew there was a connection with that line on the ATKINSON side but this is the first indication of an earlier conection between the WATSON and the YOHO families.
Jacob Yoho WATSON b 1808 in OH, wife Hester. Jacob's father was John, but am unsure of his mother. This family is in Monroe co OH as early as 1810 but probably closer to 1800 or just before. Is anyone researching a YOHO family with these connections?
