About Hermione "Hermie" Elizabeth Yoakum (Foss)

Hermione Foss Yoakum died a couple of weeks after the premature birth of her child. Henry Clay Yoakum, her husband, died shortly thereafter, reportedly of a broken heart. The seven children were raised by his brother Daniel Yoakum and his father Hughy, and also some were sent to relatives in California.

"Hermie (Foss) Yoakum was directly related to Joseph Jacob Foss, a WWII fighter ace who went on to become governor of South Dakota for two terms. The state building in Sioux Falls is named after him" (2)
