Gertrude was born about 1778. Gertrude Yoder ... She passed away about 1830.
Added 9 Feb 2018 by Francis E. Berkey (BERKEY-120) in doing additional information from Gingerich & Kreider and DJH to fill out the family of Henry Hochstetler AKA HS18 who seems to have been trying to start a country of his own with 19 children. I started into him about early January thinking it might consume a few days and did I ever guess wrong. FEB
Personal family information both written and from family Bibles gathered over several years of travel and library research. Original edition The Berkey Book and also 2nd edition which has many Berkeys that I personally researched as well as Line 26 which is started with Orange Grove Berkey. This is as close as our branch comes but in Line 3 appears his younger sister, Catherine Winchester Berkey who married Joseph Hochstetler who is DJH-4263. This was actually a mistake on the part of the informant named Wade Miller whose mother was a Berkey and since Catherine was in the household of Jacob Berkey he thought she was his daughter but she was not. Many of my relatives are in Descendants of Jacob Hochstetler first published in 1912 by Rev. Harvey Hostetler, D.D. long before personal computers.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Gertrude by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Gertrude:
