    2. [S1199] Yoder Newsletter, (Location: Goshen, Indiana, USA;), "Hamburg Christian Yoder," Issue No. 30, October 1997, page 1.
      For years the story was handed down that one Barbara Yoder, whose husband died at sea,landed in America some time before 1720. with nine small children--eight sons and a daughter--and that they settled in the Oley Valley, where sons Hans and Yost became well- known. Eventually an alert descendantpublicized a discrepancy in the story and family historians began to chip away at this garbled mixing of two lines of Y oder immigrants.

      Although there has never been any documentation available about the "Widow Barbara", it is agreed that she did exist.We know that "Widow Barbara" arrived not prior to 1720, but on September 21, 1742, on the Francis and Elizabeth. Three Yoder men signed the ship list upon their docking in Philadelphia. Through the efforts of Dr. Hugh Gingerich, we now know there were eight Amish Yoder men of the first generation, and we know that two of these 1742 signatories (Jacob and Christian Joder) were sons of "Widow Barbara" , We now know that Barbara did indeed have nine children (seeYNL 2, Oct. 83), but only four of those sori5 were hers. The other four belonged to the other Yoder family aboard ship. This second Yoder family was once said to have been that of "Strong Jacob" Yoder, but now we know the head of the second family was the Christian Jotter on the ship list . For some reason a clerk wrote Jacob's name for him and it appears directly above that of his older brother, who wrote his name Christian Joder (SeeYNL 20). It is interesting to see this mix of spelling---Joder ,the spelling used by their Swiss forebears,and Jotter, a spelling adopted by some of the family in Alsace and also in Eppstein, Germany (YNL 10)

      The older Christian Jotter located in Berks County on land situated where the present day township sof Upper Bern, Center, and Penn come together, but Barbara's family settled closer to the village of Hamburg, which is no doubt the reason that her son was known as
      "Hamburg Christian" to distinguish him from the others. As these sons became of age they took farms of their own, Christian "on the twenty-ninth day of the eighth month, 1743" and Jacob on October 28, 1147. One old diagram in the archives at Harrisburg shows Christian's land bounded by the farms of Isaac Kauffman, Stephen Kauffman. Hans Ilertzler and vacant land. Soon afterward the map shows that the farms of his brother Jacob, and Christian Fisher (apparentty a brother-in-law), adjoining his. The Hertzler property was now in the name of Jacob Hertzler.

      By 1767 Jacob Yoder was living farther south, in Lancaster County, but as far as we know, Christian stayedon his original farm as long as he lived. Hamburg Christian's wife was named Barbara. Dr. Gingerich felt it was probable that Barbara was the daughter of Jacob Beiler and that her sister married his brother Jacob Yoder. There is no proof of this, but it seems possible given the known connections and proximity of the families. Christian and Barbara reared eleven children in this home, but as time went on most of them left the community. The chief reason was probably the lure of more and cheaper land' but the tensions of the American Revolution no doubt exerted an influence as well.

      Hamburg Christian" died in his fifties (probably in 1772, although some records say l77l). His will was dated December 10, 1771.The scribe wrote it out in beautiful English script. From the details in this will, in which Christian reflected his concern that his beloved Barbara be well-cared for after his death, we can get a glimpse of how the pioneers in his time were living.
