The Yox family in Erie County New York seems to be all related. The immigrants who came in the early 1850's to East Hamburg, were 3 brothers, David Jox, Johann Heinrich, and Georg Andreas, and their sister Anna Maria and her husband Heinrich Haas. David and his wife Catharina came with 3 children, and had 4 more in Erie County. Johann Jox was the youngest of the brothers and came with his wife later, in the late 1860's, and settled in East Aurora. The surname was Jox and the family appears in the records of Oberbessingen, Hesse back to Johannes Jox who married in Oberbessingen in 1667. The many Yox in Erie County appear to be from this Jox line.
