Leonard Yocum Obituary

October 31, 2016

lyocumpicLeonard Yocum was the husband of my second great-aunt, Vivian “Sophie” Helene Anna Adermann. She was tenth of Ferdinand and Mary (Heiden) Adermann’s twelve children. Leonard and “Sophie” married on Christmas Eve of 1924 in Altamont, Effingham County, Illinois and had two children. Their son, Harley Eugene, was born 20 August 1925 and their daughter, Maxine Leigh, 12 April, 1927. Between the birth of their two children, the couple moved from Illinois to Detroit, where Maxine was born.

Of special note, Leonard and Vivian were Kevin Hackett’s grandparents; his mother was Maxine (Yocum) Hackett. Kevin is my cousin and Adermann family genealogy buddy.

Here is the obituary for Leonard Yocum from The Hillsdale Daily News, 14 April 1981.
