Mary E. Yoxall.

Mary E. Yoxall Home.
Publish date 1908.
Push to enlarge.

Mary E. Yoxall is some what of a mystery, there's is very little very little information on her.  Its known she came to Wallace County, Kansas, in 1885, settled in section 24 of Weskan Township.  Records state she was born in February of 1858, and that she married a Samuel D. Yoxall, in about 1885,
who was born in England in 1850 and came to America in 1873.  As far as I can find out there was no children to this union.

Mary was a Stock woman, when she first settled she owned 640 acres, her husband had no land in his name. By 1908 she owned land in sections 23, 24, 26 and 19, for a total of 1,974.44 acres. Her ranch was called: Smoky Dale Alfalfa Stock Ranch.  Her post office address was Weskan, Kansas, which was two miles south from the farm.

Authors Note.  I couldn't find any death or burial records, If any one has information on Mary E. Yoxall. I would like hear about it.
