This booklet is 7 pages, measures about 5-3/4 inches by 8-3/4 inches. There is a picture of Ralph S. Yohe on the front, with a brief bio. I will transcribe it exactly as it reads (but I won't be able to keep myself from adding "sic" from time to time!)

"The Yohe Family, Compiled in 1955 by Ralph S. Yohe, Son of Irvin Yohe of Mt. Erie, Illinois and Grandson of Luther Yohe.
He served in the Navy from June 9, 1942. Discharged in 1946. As Associate Editor of Prairie Farmer, Ralph S. Yohe not only thinks back to his home farm in Wayne county, Illinois; his agricultural training at the University of Illinois and two years in poultry improvement work. He recalls farm lessons learned from Greece to Lapland, for Ralph has traveled in many European lands. His stories and photos appear in Prairie Farmer and he broadcasts over WLS. Author of "What Farmers Can Learn From Other Lands."

"The Yohe Family:
The story of the Yohe family began in France. After four years of struggle and great persecution, the French protestants, called Huguenots, were granted religious and political freedom in 1598, in a charter called the Edict of Nantes.

But persecution again spread over the land under Louis XIV. Protestant churches were demolished. The Huguenots were stripped of their freedoms, their property confiscated. Large numbers of people fled the country.

Now let us move to the province of Baden in southwestern Germany. Great tragedy had descended on the villages nestled in the small valleys among the forested hills. Large numbers of villagers had lost their lives in the Thirty Years War. Whole families had perished in the plagues that frequently swept across Europe.

The local noblemen were short of workmen for their estates. They frequently welcomed the Hughenots (sic) fleeing from France.

In 1668, a group of Huguenots settled near Beerfelden in the Landkresse (County) of Erbach. In this group were people by the name of Joe (pronounced SHJO-A). It was the French name for Joseph. Protestant Huguenots frequently assumed bibical (sic) names.

It is not known how many people settled here by that name. But by the early 1700's, there was at least one family by the name of Johe in every one of the six villages lying around Beerfelden.

In the early days parish ministers spelled names as they sounded. Often the local people cound not even write their own names. It was not long before the name appeared in the records as Joh. Sometimes it appeared as Joens. In later times an "e" was added to Joh, no doubt to conform more to its original form. Frequently today in Germany the "e" is accented.

Here are the entries I found in the old parish records now yellowed with age.
FAMILY RECORDS FROM THE PARISH CHURCH IN BEERFELDEN, ODENWALD, GERMANY.
Entries from Etzean Village
April 24, 1678 - Hans Joe, father Jacob Joe, married Christina from Airlenbach village, father Hans Scheuermann.
July 23, 1723 - Christina, wife of Hans Joh, died age 66 years, 7 months minus 6 days.
June 7, 1691 - Born to Hans Joh and Christina, Hans Peter.

Entries from Village of Gammelsbach
February 9, 1718 - Married to Hans Peter Joh from Etzean village Anna Elizabeth, father Hans Peter Urich (Probably should be Zior - the old records are frequently hard to read.)
December 29, 1721 - Born to Hans Peter Joh and Anna Zior, Johann Michel.
January 19, 1722 - Anna Zior Joh, wife of Hans Peter died of a head disease, age 33 years.

Among the ship records of early immigrants coming from the Palantine (southwestern) section of Germany is the following list of family heads:
It can be found as list 127C in the book, PENNSYLVANIA GERMAN PIONEERS, R.B. Strassburger, Pennsylvania Germany (sic?) Society, Norristown, PA., 1834.
At the Courthouse at Philadelphia, Saturday, 2nd September, 1749.
Present: Thomas Graeme
Wm. Allen Esquires
The foreigners whose names are underwritten, imported in the ship Albany, Robert Brown, Master, from Rotterdam, but last from Cowes in England did this day take the usual oaths to the government. By the list 108, number of Souls 285, from Erpacht (Erbach) and Wirtemberg.
Johann Jacob Joh
Johann Adam Joh
Johann Michel Joh

The "J" was later changed to "Y" to correspond with its pronunciation. "J" in German has a "Y" sound. Michel in English is spelled Michael.

The next record is found among the persons naturalized in the province of Pennsylvania as having resided seven years, produced evidence of having taken sacrament of the Lord's Supper in some protestant or reformed congregation, becoming natural born citizens of Great Britain:
"On 10th day of September, 1761, at the said Supreme Court (Philadelphis) before the said judges purseance of the aforesaid Act of Parliament, the following persons:
Michael Yoh, County; Philad'a, sacrament, when taken, 16 August, 1761." Pennsylvania Archives II Series, Vol. II, p 363."

I'll finish the rest tomorrow...

Part II of "The Yohe Family" by Ralph S. Yohe

"Adam and Michael were granted Penn patents in the original town of Easton, Pa. (It isn't known whether this was the original Michael or his son by the same name.) The king of England had given Pennsylvania to William Penn for a debt. Penn, in turn, gave patents to new settlers. The following entries can be found in the book, THE PENN PATENTS IN THE FORKS OF THE DELAWARE, A. D. Chidsey, Jr., Voll II, the Northampton County Historical & Genealogical Society, Easton, PA, 1937.

The following account of Michael, undoubtedly the son of the original Michael is given in BIOGRAPHICAL REVIEW OF PITTSBURGH, Pa., Vol XXXIV, Boston 1897, pp 315-316, and HISTORY OF STARK CO., OHIO.
Michael Yohe became a soldier during the Revolution under General George Washington and spent the winter at Valley Forge. He was in the Battle of Germantown and served in the army until the close of the war.
Afterward he was sent to Pennsylvania to put down the whiskey Insurrection. In 1794 he camped in Washington county on the site where Mt. Zion Lutheran church later stood.
Later he settled in Washington county Pennsylvania, on a farm at Ginger Hill in Nottingham township, with his wife, Mary Shouse, also of Easton, PA. The Ohio account says he finally moved and lived the remainder of his life in Monongahela City. Here he died at the age of 86. He and his wife are buried in an old German graveyard on what was once the Paul Williams farm.

Michael Yohe was on the list of members of Forks Township Company, 5th Battalion, Northampton county, Pa. Militia. Ordered to march July 20, 1778 from Captain Dickman's 5th Company, November 18, 1780.

His military record can be found in:

THE YOHE'S IN OHIO
In 1810, Michael Yohe, Jr. loaded his family into a Conestoga wagon and brought them west. Fifteen years later he entered from the government, section 36 of Canton township and section 31 of Osnaburg township in Stark county, Ohio. He died about 1832.

Peter, a farmer in Stark county; Barnett, who died in Stark county in 1865; William; Philip; Maria, who married William Flickinger in Stark county; Margaret, who married David Smith and moved to North Manchester, Indiana; Mrs. Catherine Skelton, who died in Illinois. (Michael should undoubtedly be added to this list since without him there are only seven children listed. And I remember very distinctly that my grandfather said there were eight children in his father's family.)
Michael Yohe moved to northern Indiana, where there is still a family of Yohes near Columbia City.

THE AKE FAMILY
Peter Ake was born and reared in Switzerland, of German descent. Prior to the Revolution, he immigrated to Baltimore, Maryland. He had five children, John, Jacob, Francis, Martin, and Betsy.

That's it...I tried to be as accurate as possible, double-checking all dates. If there are errors I made, I apologize.

Shirley -
The "booklet" by Ralph S. Yohe was something I think he had printed up many,many years ago for a family reunion. I believe I scanned it into my computer a while ago. I can check and send you the scanned pages if you'd like.
As far as a son Jacob...What info I have been given shows that that Michael Sr. had a son Jacob, born 23 Apr 1784, died 3 May 1831. I do not personally have any firm documentation on this.
