I corresponded with Nellie Gard in the late 1970's thru 1981. We moved at that time, I sent my change of address and never received a reply.I had wanted to buy her book, which I have found finally published, in the OK Hist. Lib. Do you have a current address at which I might apply for purchase of "Our Ellenwood Clan"?Some of my early Ellenwood research was recorded by Nellie in her book. To answer your question, at this time I do not have any family connection with Yoakum to Wood. But refer you to look up YOAKUM in GenForum. Brenda Yoakum-Kriz, as her Yoakum line was in East Tennessee.
