Francis M and Armilda are my great-great grandparents. James Marion was born
in Iowa 10 Sept, 1858.(although his obituary states his father was J.F.Yoder, more later).Armilda died, and F.M. married Sophie.In 1885 census they were in Shell City, Minnesota, where they bought ownership of the town.
They owned several businesses there, including the Yoder Haus hotel.
