A collection of photographs from a family album belonging to Emma or Annie (Saul) Yost of Charleston, WV. It's a large album, and this page contains a representative selection. I would love to pass this on to an appropriate family member, but I have not yet be able to identity anyone close.
James A. Yost, his wife, who I believe was either Emma or Annie Saul, and their only son James A. Yost Jr. lived on Dudley Road in Charleston, WV, USA, for many years. Their little farmhouse was razed in the early 2000s to make way for a new home. James, Jr. was killed in action at the Battle of the Bulge in WWII. His personal effects came to me through inheritance, though I am not related by blood.
My eldest daughter was so taken with Jame's effects that she created a Social Studies project on James that won the first ever "Best of Show" in the WV state Social Studies competition.
Please contact me if you know this family or are a close relation and we'll talk. --- G. S. Morris
