To the List,

Attached below is the information I have been able to collect to date on Joseph Yeoman and his wife Mary Matilda (Sumlar) Yeoman. The tabbing gets confused on copying in, but I think the material is readable.

If anyone has additional information on this couple and their family, I would appreciate their contacting me.
