It has been since July that I have looked at Yoltons--Mark Yolton and Tom Cool Yolton both sent me LOTS of their infomation and combined with what I had from my grandfather, Allan Wayne Yolton (son of Errol and Nelle May Spiher) I have been trying to make sense and connections.
Here is what I had when you contated me today:
John Yolton born 4-9-1832 and married ?? had the following children: Agnew; Madison; Otis; Mary and J. Sherman.I assume your John Sherman and my J. Sherman are one and the same.I did not have a date of birth but did have a date of death as 1900.So, if he indeed married Maggie Ralston in September of 1894, they had only 6 years together.I did not have any information about his marriage or children.
Going the other way...
John Yolton's parents were William Yolton (1) and Mary Cool.William's dates are 4/6/1803-4/2/1879; the only date I have for Mary is dob: Oct 9, 1803.Their son William (2) is my ancestor.They lived in Frankfort Springs, were charter members of the Frankfort Springs Presbyterian Church and William is buried there.I suspect Mary is but I cannot find proof of it "long distance".
Incidentally, the Yoltons, Wilsons and Ralstons all intermarried--and one of those connects the Yoltons to the Morrow family, ancestors of Ann Morrow Lindbergh.
