Posted by: Robert Grant (ID *****4175) Date: November 06, 2011 at 15:52:19
In Reply to: Joseph Yeoman And Mary Matilda (Sumlar) Yeoman by Robert Grant of 520

To the List,

Thanks to the good assistance of JaimeDee Kuehner, a correction needs to be made to my last posting regarding Joseph Yeoman's daughter Mary Hannah Yeoman. She did not marry Louis Seel, but did marry Walter Joseph Grand, Jr. The information on Mary Hannah is provided below.

Robert N. Grant
15 Campo Bello Court
Menlo Park, CA 94025

Revised Material on Mary Hannah (Yeoman) Grand

       Mary Hannah (Yeoman) Grand was a daughter of Joseph Yeoman and Mary (Sumlar) Yeoman. (Joseph1)

       The 1871 Census for Ontario, Canada, listed Mary H. Yeoman in the Joseph Yeoman household and her age as 10 and born in Ontario, indicating a date of birth in about 1861.

       The marriage record of Mary Yeoman and Walter Grand was dated on February 17, 1881, in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois:

“Marriage License

The People of the State of Illinois, To any Person Legally Authorized to Solemnize Marriage, Greeting:

This record indicates that Mary Hannah (Yeoman) Grand was born in about 1861 and that Walter Grand was born in about 1860.

       The birth record of Walter Grand, son of Mary (Yeoman) Grand and Walter Grand, was dated on February 14, 1882, in Cook County, Illinois:
