1702 [Benjamin Henderson Yockey & family are discussed in Chapter 5
of "Yockey Ancestors, Westmoreland County, PA" by Janet K.Warter,
1997. FHL microfilm 2056012-item 7.]

NOTES & SOURCES:
1. Yockey Family Bible - The Bible of John Yockey was also used to
record the births/marriages/deaths for the Henderson [Benjamin Henderson]
Yockey family, and it came down in this family. [This Bible is now in the
possession of my sister, a granddaughter of Clara May Yockey McKlveen.
Clara McKlveen died 28 Feb. 1914 of tuberculosis. Her 3 children were
raised by their father and their McKlveen grandparents.]

2. Page from a small book owned by Anna Mary Barnhart Yockey. This
contains a record of the birthdates of her 3 children, written in her hand.
The page has the record on one side, and the other, a hand-colored stenciled
design of two hearts & flowers, with "Anna M. Barnhart, Testament" in
the hearts. This page also came down in the family of Clara May Yockey
McKlveen.

3. Henderson Yockey met and married Anna Mary Barnhart after the
Yockey family moved to Unity Twp. The Barnhart family lived only
a mile or less away, but in Hempfield Twp. She was one of 5 children
of John Barnhart (1822-1888) & wife Sarah Schwartz/Swartz (1827-1909).
["Barnhart Ancestors, Westmoreland Co., PA" by Janet K. Warter, 2001,
FHL microfilm #1425446. Chapter 3 develops the story of the parents
of Anna Mary Barnhart Yockey.]

4. The old log house on the Yockey farm may have been their first home,
shared with them by John & Elizabeth Jane Yockey, but a new wood frame
house was built on the farm a short distance away from the log house
sometime after 1876. (The new house is not shown on the 1876 Unity
Twp. map.) Henderson & Anna Mary did live in the new house later,
and it is likely that it was built by Henderson, not by John. The house
was not mentioned in the Will of John Yockey, although the farm land
went to Henderson.

5. Census records, Unity Twp.:
1880 - B.H. Yockey, 26; Anna, 27; John F., 1.

Feb. 20, 1911. Henderson & Anna Mary helped raise the children.
John F. Yockey developed cancer and died at age 42 in 1921, leaving the
children solely in the care of their grandparents.]

6. Will of Benjamin Henderson Yockey - Will Bk. 23:442. Written 17 Aug.
1923. He died 16 Sept. 1926. Gave all his "real estate, personal property,
money & bonds" to his wife as long as she lived, and then to the other
heirs. His only surviving child, Howard, was to get half the real estate, &
the other half to be divided between the 4 oldest children of his deceased
son, John F. Yockey. The 3 children of his deceased daughter Clara Mae
Yockey McKlveen were to receive $200 each, and $100 to the youngest
child of John F. Yockey [ from a second marriage that ended in
divorce.] After the death of Anna Mary Barnhart Yockey in 1935, and the
settlement of the estate, there was actually little money left to distribute
as indicated in the Will.
