Biography

Curtis Yohe has German Roots.
Curtis Yohe was a Pennsylvanian.

Curtis, son of George Washington Yohe and Hettie E. Gruver, was born 2 April 1882 in Paradise Township, York County, Pennsylvania.[1][2][3][4] He grew up and raised a large family of his own in nearby Jackson Township, York County. There his father George W. Yohe (age 41) was a farmhand in 1900, supporting a family that included Curtis's mother Hettie A. (38, mother of seven, all living), and her children (all at school) Curtis Allen (18), Mazie A. (16), Paul A. (13), Cletus Sylvester (12), Sarah E. (7), Stuart Samuel (4) and Elmira (2).[3]

On 4 February 1904 in Jackson Township, he married Mary Ellen Lochman (Laughman),[5] daughter of John Henry Lochman and Ida Baublitz. They had 19 children before Mary Ellen died in 1927,[6] probably from complications due to childbirth:

  • Hettie A. Yohe (b. 6 February 1903; d. 12 February 1903).[7]
  • Ida A Yohe (b. 6 February 1903; d. 19 February 1903).[8] The twins were born the year before their parents' marriage and are buried next to their parents with three little markers (including one for Guy).
  • Myrtle Mae (Yohe) Leese (b. 27 April 1905;[9] m. Charles Franklin Leese, Jr.;[10] d. 17 May 1982).[9] Ten children.[11][12]
  • Guy L Yohe (b. 5 June 1906; d. 25 May 1907).[13]
  • Lena I. (Yohe) Hoff (b. 24 May 1907;[14][15] m. Arthur W. Hoff;[16] d. 22 May 1985).[14][15] One son: Arthur L. "Bud" Hoff (1929–1997).[17][18] She took in her youngest brother after their mother's death.[16]
  • John Henry Yohe (b. 12 September 1908;[19][20] m. Grace Elizabeth Rudisill;[21] d. November 1979).[19][20] Three children.[21]
  • Kathryn V. (Yohe) Krug (b. 19 July 1911; d. 22 September 1950).[26]
  • Anna E. Yohe (b. ~1913; death unknown).[27][28]
  • Roxie V Yohe (b. ~1917; death unknown).[27][28]
  • Clova Daisy (Yohe) Diehl (b. 1919;[38] m. Irvin Edward Diehl;[39] d. 1971).[38]
  • Philip Emanuel Yohe (b. 26 April 1921;[40] m. Ruth J. Wherley;[40] d. 30 October 2016).[40] He was the last surviving of Curtis's 19 children.
  • David Chester Yohe (b. 29 September 1922; d. 12 February 1961).[41]
  • Reba R. (Yohe) Wherley (b. 15 November 1925;[45][46] d. 5 March 1983).[45][46]
  • George Mahlon Yohe (b. 20 September 1927;[47] m. Nellie Estella Schuman;[48] d. 5 June 1996).[47] Four children.[48] His mother died just two weeks after his birth.

The couple settled in Jackson Township, where the household in 1910 included Curtis (age 27, paper mill fireman), Mary E. (25, mother of seven, four living), and their children Myrtle Mae (4), Lena I. (2), John Henry (19 months) and Mary E. (three months).[49]

When he registered for the draft in 1918, Curtis was farming in Spring Grove, York County.[1] At that time the 36-year-old was described as of medium height and build with brown hair and eyes.[1] (In 1942 he was specifically described as 5'8", 162 lbs. with blue (rather than brown) eyes, brown hair and a ruddy complexion.)[2]

In 1920, Curtis A. (age 37) continued to cultivate the land in Jackson Township, to support his family that had grown to include his wife Ellen M. Yohe (36) and their children Myrtle Mae (14), Lena I. (12), John H. (11), Mary E. (10), Kathryn V. (8), Anna E. (7), Sarah E. (6), Paul E. (4), Roxie V. (2), Jacob Allen (18 months), and Clova D. (one month).[27]

His wife Mary Ellen died in 1927,[6] leaving behind her husband and many small children, including five born after the 1920 census was enumerated.

By 1930 some of the older children had established their own homes, leaving in the family residence in Jackson Township Curtis A. Yohe (age 47, paper mill fireman for P. H. Gladfelter Company), his children Catherine (19), Anna (17, spinner at spinning mill), Sarah (16), Paul (14), Roxie (12), Jacob (11), Philip Emanuel (10), Clova (8, should be 13), David Chester (7), Curtis Sylvester (5) and Reba R. (4), as well as his granddaughter Velma Sellers (1).[28] Curtis A, (age 57, paper mill worker) had only three children residing with him in Jackson Township in 1940: Jacob A. (21), Clova D. (20, paper mill worker) and Curtis S. (15).[50]

Curtis died 19 November 1958 in North Codorus Township, York County, and was buried 23 November 1958 at Pleasant Hill Brethren Cemetery in Pigeon Hills, Jackson Township.[4]
