1. Biography:
William Francis Yocom, attorney at law, Staunton, Ind., was born in Dick Johnson Township September 14, 1847, and is the fourth in a family of ten children, nine of whom are living. His father, Isom Yocum, came to this county from Kentucky in 1832. His early education was limited to the common schools, but being ambitious and persevering he gained by hard study a superior education. He has been a teacher in the public schools of this county fifteen years, and is highly esteemed. In 1872, he began the study of law, and in 1874 was admitted to the bar, and commenced practicing. March 19, 1874, he married Mary J. Reeder, it being her twentieth birthday.

They have five children-- Clarence Lilbert, born October 16, 1874; Henry Crawford, December 2, 1875; Roswell Dale, December 18, 1877; Maud D., October 6, 1879; Bessie Pearl, April 31, 1883. Mr. Yocom is identified with the political interests of the Democratic party, being one of their most prominent workers. He was Deputy Sheriff of Clay County from 1875 to 1877. While he was holding this office, the county records were moved from Bowling Green to Brazil. Since 1877, he has practiced law in Staunton.' ( Counties of Clay and Owen, Indiana. Historical and Biographical. Charles Blanchard, Editor, 1884.)


'William F. Yocum, native of Clay county, son of Isom Yocum, born September 14, 1847; acquired a good common school education, and taught successfully in the public schools of this county and in the state of Illinois for a period of ten or twelve years. In 1872 he began reading law and two years later was admitted to the bar. On the 19th day of March, 1874, he married Mary J. Reeder, on her twentieth birthday, an assistant teacher in the Staunton schools, of which he was the principal. For the years 1875-'76 he was deputy sheriff under his uncle, Jesse Yocum. Succeeding this term of service he engaged in the practice of law at Staunton. In 1890-'91 he served for a time as deputy auditor under his brother, Matthew R. Yocum. He died July 13, 1892, aged 44 years, 9 months and 29 days, survived by his wife and five children--three sons and two daughters. Mr. Yocum was a man of good native ability and liberal acquirements, much above the average as an instructor and disciplinarian.'
