So Who Is Jacob Yohe?
Jacob Yohe was born 12 Oct 1810 and died 29 August 1871, in PA. He married Rachel Brown 18 Oct 1836, daughter of John Brown and Elizabeth Lunnebery.  She was born 13 Feb 1814 in Columbia Co, Pa.  Rachel Brown was the sister of Daniel.

JACOB YOHE, (deceased) was born near Mifflinville, this county, October 12, 1810, to Peter and Nonie (Fortner) Yohe, the former a native of Berks County, Penn., and the latter of New Jersey. Both came to Columbia County when young; here they were married, lived and died, and both are buried in Mifflinville, the former died about 1855 and the latter about 1851. Jacob learned the milling trade when a boy at the Mifflinville mills, and when he had reached manhood and finished his trade his father built the Yohe or Mifflin mills, which Jacob conducted for his father until the latter's death. About two or three years after that event Jacob purchased the mill property, which he conducted until one year before his death. He was then elected county treasurer and served two years, after which he lived retired until his death. He married, October 18, 1836, Miss Rachel Brown, a native of Columbia County, born February 13, 1814, and a daughter of John and Elizabeth (Lunnenberry) Brown, !

both of whom were born in the State of New Jersey, and were there married before coming to Pennsylvania. The former was a farmer in New Jersey, and followed that occupation after coming to Columbia County. Besides Rachel, there were ten other children, of whom six are living, including Mrs. Yohe. Mr. Brown died in this county in February, 1863; his wife had died some years prior. Mr. and Mrs., Yohe were the parents of eight children, two of whom are living: Margaret, wife of Luther Hutchins (had ten children, four living), at Rock Glen, Luzerne Co., Penn., and Marshall, who resides with his mother. The deceased were named as follows: John Wesley, whose widow and two children survive him; Ezra; David Brown; Ashbol Gwynn, whose widow and two children survive him; Naomi Jane and Benjamin Fortner. Mr. Yohe died August 29, 1871, and is buried at Mifflinville. He was a man much esteemed, and enjoyed a large and favorable acquaintance throughout this section of country. He was a member of the Methodist Church; his widow is a member of the same at Mifflinville.
