I am so glad that this forum has started, it has been wel overdue.What I know of the Yox family is very limited but here goes:
My lineage is through Anne Catherine (Kate) Yox who married John Wesley Shipley sometime in the 1800s in Baltimore County, MD.According to the 1900 census, Kate was born July 24, 1866 in Maryland, both of here parents are from Germany.My site has the lineage, children and some scanned images of source documents at http://www.our-heritage.com/research/page2a.htmhttp://www.our-heritage.com/research/page2a.htm
Kate Yox and John Shipley had 7 children: Maud, Grover, Fred, Nancy, Ellen, Madge and Ann Rebecca.
In addition, I have found other Yox families in the 1900 census of Baltimore, MD and they are listed below:
Geo Yox in the first dist. of Baltimore County, Md.b. 1876, a weaver, he was b. MD both parents b. Germany with wife Mary b. 1881.
living next door to Geo Yox is a John Yox b. 1871, he was b. MD, his father was b. Md and mother Germany, John was a store keeper and was wife his wife J--- whose parents were b. Germany and she was born in Md.Also John was with his two daughters Susan and Rosa.
There is another John Yox in the 4th dist of Baltimore County, Md who was b. 1867 in Md, both parents b. Germany, John was a day laborer with wife Ida who was b. 1867 in MD both parents b. MD. The couple had 4 children in the house: Edith, Suzzie, John and Thomas.
