Re: What is origin of Yohn

In Reply to: What is origin of Yohn by Angela Yohn of 54

I married into the Yohn Family also, in Carroll County Maryland. The name is German, spelled "Jahn". It's English counterpart, Yohn, was spelled many ways: Yon, Yoner, Youn, Yown, Yawn, Yaun, Yaughan and Yane. Source for this information is the book, "Reister's Desire" Origin of Reisterstown Maryland, founded 1758.

Hope this helps,
Woody Rush
