The descendants of John Yocum born June 2, 1798 and came from Reading, PA to Steubenville, Jefferson County, in about 1824, have been looking for John's parents for quite some time. The rumor that he is the son of John Yocum and Mary Evans has been disproved some time ago. He could still however, be a member of that family.We'd like to find that out, hopefully. John Yocum married Sarah Davis.She was born in 1801 and came from Beaver County, PA.Her father, David Davis, was from Wales. Both are buried at Union Cemetery in Steubenville, Ohio.
