    2. [S1197] Notes of Thompson Lewis, Thompson Lewis, Yoder Newsletter, Christian Schweitzer Yoder.
      "Schweitzer" Christian, the oldest son of Christian Joder, Stayed in the home community the longest. His father had deeded the home farm to him in 1760. By that time he was married and had four children, but his first wife died soon after that. Her name is unknown like so many Amish wives in her generation, there is no record as to where she belonged. Christain's second wife was Barbara Hooley, daughter of immigrant Hans, and with her he had eleven more children. His father died in November, 1775, and the next spring the whole family moved to the Glades in Somerset County. There was no road to his property and the nearest neighbor lived five miles away. Here he accumulated plot after plot until by 1794 he was able to transfer 400 acres to each of three of his sons all on the same day. When Stony Creek Township was organized the Yoders in it were Schweitzer Christian and his sons.

      Surrounded by the strip mining operation of the PBS Coal Company, Cambra Tipple, the old Yoder Cemeteyr in Somerset County has been a survivor. It's seen the land stripped off and then smoothed back again around it. Watchful eyes of interested descendants have helped insure this. This cemetery, completely overgrown and in disrepair, is on the original homestead of "Schweitzer" Christian Yoder, and contains Christian's son John. John's grave and that of his wife Barbara Yoder are among the few that can be identified today. We believe it likely that "Schweitzer" Christian, his second wife Barbara Hooley, and their son Bishop Christian Yoder Sr. are also here. "Schweitzer" Christian Yoder (Feb.1728-Nov20,1816), orginally a farmer in Bern Twp, Berks, in the spring of 1776 moved to present day Somerset Co, PA.
