I'm not sure when this booklet was written but it is typed. I do know it was before 1963 as my grandfather was still alive.
A little background: Casper Schrock was Yost's grandfather. Casper's exact birthdate is unknown but is suppose to be around 1745 in Switzerland. He married Mary Stuckey, a native of Germany. (I'm not sure whether they married before or after immigrating to the United States). To this union were born 10 children - Henry, John, Christian, Michael, Katie, David, Joseph, Abraham, Jacob, and Peter.
Peter being the 10th child was born in Summerset County, Pennsylvania in September 1795 and died in April 1846. In the year 1818 he married Sarah Miller. Their children were:
Catherine born: 1.2.1821 married: John Troyer
Elizabeth born: 1823 married: Christian Plank
Susanah born: 3.19.1825 married: Daniel Schrock
Yost Y.** born: 3.21.1827 married: Martha Plank

Benjamin born: 6.7.1831? married: Rachel Schrock
Sarah born: 9.10.1834 married: Christian Stuckey

Yost Y. Schrock was Peter and Sarah (Miller) Schrock's 4th child and was born near Wayne County, Ohio on 3.21.1827 and died at his home near Middlebury Indiana in 1910.
In October 1848 at the age of 21 Yost married Martha Plank of Wooster Ohio. After the marriage Yost and Martha moved on the old homestead and here their two oldest children were born. In 1851 they moved to Elkhart County Indiana. The following spring they purchased the farm on which Yost died near Middlebury Indiana. Their children were:
