I am also related to the Yonts family, and am from Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. There are still several Yonts in the Greenville, Rosewood and Lake Malone areas of Muhlenberg County. Kentucky State Congressman Brent Yonts is from Muhlenberg County. You might contact him for some family history. There was a Kentucky history teacher at Greenville High School back in the 50's and 60's named Virginia Pannell. She is no longer alive, but there are still some Pannell's in Muhlenberg County. They might very well have some interesting Kentucky history, including these two families. There is a museum in Greenville, also the local newpaper (Leader-News), or the Muhlenberg County Library. Good luck in your search.
