descends from John Yoe, a doctor who appeared in Mexico
from Ricardo (Photograph Dr John Yoe, his ancestor)
think it is more difficult in my case because of my Yoe
ancestor come alone (that´s what I think because we´re
in Mexico the only Yoe family).In fact , John Yoe went
to Chiapas, Mexico about 1860. What do you think? I appreciate
your commnts. Regards, Ricardo
WILL BE A PLEASURE TO HELP YOU. OF COURSE, YOU CAN ADD
ANYTHING YOU WANT ABOUT ME. IN FACT, I DON'T REMEMBER
IF YOU HAVE THAT TREE. SHALL I SEND IT YOU AGAIN? I'M
ATTACHING YOU THE PORTRAIT. HIS NAME WAS JOHN YOE ALTHOUGH
HE LIKED TO BE NAMED "JUAN" (TRANSLATING HIS NAME INTO
SPANISH). I'D APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENT ABOUT THE FOLLOWING:
MY FAMILY SAID HE WENT FROM ENGLAND TO MEXICO (HENCE HE
WAS A BRITISH (MEDICAL DR.)).
SOME HISTORICAL REFERENCES SAYS HE WAS BORN IN FRANCE.
I HAVE A VERY OLD BOOK WHERE IT SAYS HE WAS BORN IN THE
I TOLD YOU (I THINK) THE PROBLEM IS THAT HE DIED WHEN
HE WAS VERY YOUNG (AROUND 40), AND HE WAS ALMOST ALWAYS
WORKING WITH THE ARMY. IN ADDITION, THEIR CHILDREN WERE
SOME MONTHS OLD WHEN HE DIED, AND HENCE A LOT OF INFO
HAS BEEN LOST. (ALTHOUGH I'M TRYING TO RE-DISCOVER IT).
(THOSE MOTHERS DIED YOUNG AS WELL). I'VE BEEN RESEARCHING
THAT SINCE 1990 AND I'VE WRITTEN SOMETHINGS ABOUT HIM.
IF YOU CONSIDER IT IS OK, I COULD GIVE YOU WHAT I KNOW.
I THINK IT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE ALL THE YOEs IN MEXICO
ARE MY RELATIVES (AND WE'RE NOT MANY). THERE ARE SOME
PERSONS HOLDING OUR SURNAME BUT THEY WERE ADOPTED BY A
RICH UNCLE OF MINE. ............................RICARDO
Sheila, How are you? Hope everything ok! I have not sent
u a message since a long time ago. I have seen the Yeo/Yoe
site and it is a pleasure seeing it has grown up! I'm
taking the liberty of sending my portrait. Please include
it in your site. Another important thing is that I had
forgotten to mention that my familiy writes our last name
YOE with an accent: Yoe'. The John Yoe's children used
to do that (first generation born in Mexico between 1865-1868).
That's why I suspect a french influence acted on the surname.
Can you include this as well? Best regards! RZY
