    The Yocum Dollar
    The Yocum Dollar
    When the Delaware Indains established themselves along this tributary of the White river, the Yoakum's soon learned that they were recipients of a federal annuity of about $4,000 in silver species. By the 1820's, some of the Yocums (including Solomon) had found a way to obtain some of that silver. They made potent peach brandy to use as trading material. Providing Indians with liquor was illegal, so, according to Mr. Morrow, the Yocums felt it wise to "launder" their profits by melting down the federal silver and recasting it as the famed "Yocum Dollar." Creating new coinage was not yet an illegal act. To cover their activities, they claimed the silver came from a mine they had found; later, when the Delaware left the area along with their annuity, the mine entrance was supposedly blocked by a cave-in. It has never been found.

      JUNE 10-11 LAKEVIEW TO HOST YOCUM RENDEZVOUS

      Aurora - A southwest Missouri town, Lakeview, is inviting members of the Yocum family to a rendezvous June 10-11, and according to Leroy Armstrong of Aurora there are many in this area who are eligible to attend.

      "There are dozens...living in and around Aurora that are direct descendents of the first Yocums to settle in what is now Stone County," Armstrong said. A few of the family names are: Atkisson, Armstrong, Dummit, Robbins, Kenyon, Williams, Payne, McAnnaly, Lemaster and McKinley.

      Armstrong urged members of these families to "gather up your notepads, tape recorder, old family pictures and did up all the family history you can and come to the rendezvous.

      This is a unique event and here is a press release explaining the background:

      "Whether the name is apelled Yokum, Yocum, Yoachum or Joachim, the Southwest Missouri town of Lakeview, in cooperation with the Indian Point Chamber of Commerce and the Kimberling City Table Rock Lake Area Chamber of Commerce invites members of the Yocum Family and their relatives to attend the Yocum Family Reunion. Every single Yocum in the world from Who's Who to Who's Not is invited to pack vacation bags and head for Southwest Missouri. It is estimated that at least 500,000 people qualify.

      "Lakeview, Missouri, is a small village in Stone County, located near Table Rock Lake and three miles west of Silver Dollar City, the Ozarks version of Disney World.

      "The first white man to settle in Stone County was one James Yoachum. He and other members of the Yoachum family built log cabins in the early 1800's and lived here in what is now the town of Lakeview.

      "What is even more interesting and intriguing about this story is that these Yoachums had a silver mine and made their own money, the Yocum Silver Dollar.

      "A recent find of 7 of these Yocum coins in a cave near Branson, Missouri, has excited the interest of many Southwest Missourians. One of these coins will be on display at the Yocum Family Rendezvous. Learn how the Yoachums were able to keep the secret of the mine location.

      "All Yocum descendants are to be honored guests at the Grand Opening of the Lost Silver Mine Outdoor Drama. This is a historic re-enactment about the Yoachums, the first white men who came into Ozark Mountain Country. These courageous pioneers came here about 1800 and carved a place to live in the wilderness and a place in the pages of history forever. The Yocum Silver Mine Story, to be seen played out under the stars, is a dramatization of the book, "Traces of Silver," a history of the early 1800's in Ozark Mountain Country.

      "The Family Rendezvous date is June 10-11. The area's motels, restaurants and crafts shops will be offering special discounts to all Yocums. Registration to be in Silver Square at the north edge of Lakeview across from the Lost Silver Mine Farm.

      Here at the Farm, pioneers harvested the timber to build their cabins and then later to sell as railroad ties. Cattle and deer still graze along the mountain tops as they have for generations. At the Farm you can ride a horse along the former Indian trails or pet a Missouri mule.

      YOCUM FAMILY REUNION

      Thank you for writing about the Yocum Family Rendezvous held in Lakeview, MO. In 1983 there were 225 Yocum Family descendants present and over 150 in 1984. All enjoyed the fellowship and sharing of information on their descendanats. Many have indicated they will be returning next year. They came from Tennessee, Oregon, Georgia, Indiana, Ohio, Louisiana, California, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Texas.

      On Saturday night of the reunion, Yocum family members attended the LOST SILVER MINE OUTDOOR DRAMA. This drama is based on the Yocum family who were the first white settlers in this area during the 1800's. They obtained a silver mine and minted the Yoachum Silver Dolar which was dated 1822. If you are ever in this area, stop by to say hello and look at some of the information we have on display in the Welcome Center. There are 81 different spellings of Yocum, Yoakum, Yocam, Yokem, Yochuj, Yokum, Yoachum, etc. so you are probably descended from this family.

      The Lost Silver Mine Outdoor Drama is located at the Junction of Highways 76 and 13, Lakeview, Missouri, just three miles west of Silver Dollar City. You can stop by the Welcome and Ticket Center to purchase tickets or call 417-272-8100 to make your reservations. The drama will be open June 11 through October 26, 1985.

      The Yocum Family Rendezvous will be held on June 21, 22 and 23, 1985. You name will be placed on our list to send information about the Third Annual Rendezvous in 1985. We hope you will be able to join us at that time. 1985 will be bigger and better than ever before. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to drop us a line at any time.
