Rev. Yocum appears in his later fifties in photo, wearing early small round spectacles. This family is buried at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Westchester County, New York. The photo was found in Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut. A wonderful look at an early Westchester Pastor, Clergy or Minister Yocum. This surname is also seen spelled as Yocom, Youcome, Yokom, Youcom, and Youcum. A rare and wonderful piece.
