Letter from Ruth Shields, Granddaughter of James Yeo (1837-1911):

John Yeo (1831-1917) married Mary Ann Daniel Wonnacott who was born at Golden More in the parish of Holsworthy, Devonshire, England on May 9, 1830. They were married Oct. 15, 1853. They were married for 33 years and 4 months. Mary Ann died September 24, 1886 aged 56 years and 4 months. She is buried in the Gore (County) of West Oxford in the Canada Methodist Cemetery (Lot 49, Range 1).This information (children's birth dates) was taken from the family Bible of John Yeo which was found in the basement of a home in Innerkip. The people gave it to me. After copying the information, we decided to put the Bible "in trust" in the small Innerkip Museum with the understanding that if a member of the family surfaced it was to be turned over to them.Notes for Maryanne Daniel Wonnacott: 1851 Census

 Letter from Ruth Shields, Granddaughter of James Yeo (1837-1911) to Bob Yeo We always called him (Albert) as uncle. Being a Tailor by trade, he was always in a 3 piece suit and wore a black fedora. It was always a great time for us when he came to visit. Albert was married twice. I do not know the name of his first wife. There were two sons, Harry and Percy. Harry died at a young (4 yrs) age. Percy had two daughters Thelma & Madaline (I believe they lived in British Columbia). Albert married a widow in 1914 (Nina Mann Given) who had a daughter Annie. Albert & Nina had a daughter Jean K.
