John states that William (b.1846) and his brother George emigrated to Boston in 1867, the year William married Isabella Green and their first child was born. William and George lived at the same address in Boston and were carriage builders. He suspects that his grandparents met because of the family business. His grandmother's father owned the Boston Cab Company near to the Yeo residence.

Many thanks, John for this delightful photograph. It was taken around 1910 and covers the family of William Yeo (b. Prince Edward Island 1846 died Boston 1931). In the photo William Yeo is centered between his daughter-in-law, Florence Pollard Yeo, (John's grandmother) and his son John Henry Yeo, (his grandfather). The other three adult women are his daughters. Standing at the left ism his youngest daughter, Maude and her husband Alvan Lovejoy. Seated next to them is Elizabeth, the eldest daughter. The woman holding a baby is his daughter Ida and she is holding her youngest daughter, Isabel, named after her grandmother Isabella Green Yeo. The two girls with hair bows are Bella Smith (married name Corsa), and Ethel Smith (married name Curtis). John's father, William Henry Yeo (1901-1993) is standing in front of his mother, Florence, whilst his brother, Rensford Irving Yeo is at the extreme right
