YAPLE - I am still trying to get over that brick wall! My gr gr gr grandfather, Smith Yaple(s) born between 1800 and 1820 in Delaware County, believe to be Middletown Area. With all the Yaple info, I can still find nothing to tell me who his parents were. I know that he was in the Delaware County Census from 1840 to 1855. In 1865 he moved to Steuben County, NY. His wife was Mary Ann Scott. Known children: Jane, Margaret, William, Marcus, Ira, Sylvester, Amanda, and George. Can anyone connect in any way to this family? Betty Yeaples Hites - posted 03-2003

YAPLE - I am descended from the Yaple(s) in Delaware County, NY, as I believe the Erie Yaples are also. I live in Springboro, Crawford Co, PA. The farthest I can go is to my great great grandfather, Smith Yaple(s), have seen it both ways on census records, in Andes, Delaware, NY. He was married to Mary Ann Scott, somewhere shortly before 1837, as in 1840 the census shows him in Andes as at least 20 but not yet 30, the same for his wife, and a daughter under 5. From following census, I know that the daughter was born about 1837 and her name was Jane E. Yaple. In every census he is listed as first name of Smith, but I wonder if that was actually a middle name maybe. Also, maybe his mother's maiden name was Smith. I just have not been able to connect him to any siblings or parents yet. Would ALL who have any Yaple, Yaples, Yeaple, Yeaples connections please check to see if there might be a Smith or Scott connection around that time period? Figuring he must have been born between 1810 and 1820. Other children of Smith and Mary Ann Yaples were: Jane E., William H., Marcus, Margaret M., Sylvester L., Ira, Amanda, and George Yaple(s). We have found info to indicate that both William and Marcus died in the Civil War. In 1840 the family was listed in Andes, Delaware, NY. In 1850 they show up in Colchester, Delaware, NY. In 1855 and 1860 they are on Andes, Delaware, NY. I have not located them ANYWHERE yet in 1870. In 1880 Mary Ann Yaples is listed as a widow with her two sons Sylvester 30, and George 23, in Carrollton, Cattaraugus, NY. Do you happen to have anything that might concern any of these people?

YORKS - My ancestors, Andrew Yorks and wife Alphazina Odell had at least two daughters that settled in Delaware County. Katie M. Yorks married John H. Davis in about 1900 and they were the parents of William, Benjamin, and Verna. In the 1900 census, Katie's younger sister Mary was living with them. Katie must have died before 1910 because in that year's census record, John Davis has a different wife, Emily. Emma L. Yorks married A. Ward Merwin. Their children, according to Emma's obituary, were Carrie Ives, Alice Barnosky, Frances Curcio, and sons Mason and Kenneth. I don't know if any of Andrew and Alphazina's children lived in Delaware County. I'm descended from their son Charles, who came to Ohio. But their other children who survived to adulthood were Andrew and Jane, besides the three mentioned above. Does anyone here have a connection to this family or to any Yorks family?

YOUMANS - My name is Kelly Irion, I’m Shari Irion’s daughter and Frances Shaw’s granddaughter. My mother was born and raised in Delhi and I visited with my family once when I was much younger. It is my understanding that the house my family lived in for many years was quite well known in Delhi. I would like to get more information on the Youmans Mansion (the only thing I’ve heard it referred to as) that stood in Delhi in the early 1900’s. I’ve heard stories about the house from my grandma, but we have no pictures and no other information on it. I know that it was lived in by William and Susan Youmans before it was sold and I have general descriptions of what the house looked like (architecture, number of rooms, etc.), but I’d love to know more. Does anyone have any information on this house? Old newspaper articles, historical documents, photographs or drawings? Would appreciate any information. --Kelly Irion, (480) 467-8489 - posted 12-2018

YOUMANS - I am always looking for more information on our ancestor, Jonas Youmans, b. May 18, 1758, in Frederickstown, Dutchess Co., NY. By 1800 he was in Colchester, NY.

Youmans who married Amy Aldridge, is our line. We have looked for years to find who Jonas' parents were, but we have been unable to prove anything. I do have 16 pages of dates on this family--mostly taken from Steuben Co. records. Pat Drummond - posted 11-2001
