Surnames: YUNKER, ENGLHARDT, CAPPEL, POTTER, BOCHMAN, WINTERSTEIN, MEYER, KEUCH, BLUME
Donna, thanks for clearing this up -- so this is TOTALLY WRONG:
1. James POTTER m. __female__ YUNKER
...2. __female__ POTTER m __male__ BOCHMANN
......3. __male__ BOCHMANN m. you, Donna _____
...........4. Donna's sons, surnamed BOCHMANN?

BUT THIS IS CORRECT - right?

1. George YUNKER (b. c1885) m. Emma ENGLEHARDT (b. c1886)
....2. Luella YUNKER (b. c1910) m. John BLUME
....2. Sylvia YUNKER (b. c1912) m. Howard BLUME
....2. Myra YUNKER (b. c1912) m. Edwin BOCHMANN
........3. Oralee BOCHMANN m. ___ MEYER
........3. Eileen BOCHMANN m. ___ KEUCH
........3. Diane BOCHMANN m. ___ WINTERSTEIN
........3. Virlene BOCHMANN m. James POTTER and lived in Tinley Park, IL
............4. (five kids whose names are not listed)
............4. Garry POTTER m. Donna ______ (you)
................5. Donna's sons

You THINK Myra YUNKER BOCHMANN might be related to the Clara YUNKER CAPPEL who married Albert CAPPEL, but you are not sure of how. Myra's daughter Virlene BOCHMANN POTTER lived in Tinley Park, IL and Clara's son Marvin CAPPEL lived in Tinley Park too.

There's a couple of unusual things in your second generation above - the three sisters Louella, Sylvia, and Myra. You have Sylvia and Myra both born around 1912 - do you think they were twins? And you show Louella and Sylvia both marrying BLUME men - do you think they were brothers?

Don't answer me here, because tell you what -- I'm going to copy this over to the YUNKER board because that might be where you will find more people directly related to your sons' great-grandma Myra YUNKER BOCHMANN. Her connection to Clara YUNKER CAPPEL needs more info. Maybe they were cousins, since you didn't find Clara as a sister to Myra in your research above.

To comment on the CAPPEL connection, just reply here. To follow up or correct anything on the YUNKER side, please reply over here:
