MARILLA GOODRICH, daughter of MESHACK GOODRICH, married S.R. YETTER. Marilla died May 7th, 1851 at 25 years, 8 months and 3 days. Wife of S.J. Yetter. There are a lot of Yetters in the Franklin Cemetery near the town of Carthage, Hancock County, Illinois. This cemetery is off the 136 highway. It is down a road from the John Deer Tractor Company. Meshack Goodrich and his wife, Rebecca Ruddell are buried there.
If you are a descendent of S.R. Yetter and Marilla Goodrich Yetter, you qualify for the SAR or the DAR, as Marilla's father Meshack, was the son of Jesse Goodrich and Dinah Bishop. Jesse fought in the Revolutionary War. It is a factual mistake that this Jesse Goodrich was buried in MA. He is buried at the Old Centerburg Cemetery, Knox Co., Ohio. This cemetery is located on the East side of Croton Road at south edge of town of Centerburg Jesse Goodrich is buried near the pediment for Henry Armstrong and Elizabeth Goodrich Armstron. Elizabeth was his daughter and he lived with her and his son-in-law Henry in his advanced years.
Further, this line goes back to William Goodrich and qualifies for Colonial Dames XVIIth Century.
Yetter is not my direct line but I just wanted to share the Goodrich connection. Best, Kate You can find early information on Yetters in this part of Illinois at the Hancock County Courthouse in Carthage, IL
