"...So far as our story has unfolded, one dominant characteristic of its men stand out - they were Pioneers. In New York, in Virginia, whether on Peach Creek or on Muddy Creek, in Tennessee, and on into Texas and Kansas, the Yoakums pressed steadily against the wilderness and helped push it back. They were not mere adventurers, but builders, and the virgin ground of the New World lured them on. Whether it is 'our' story or the story of another family, it is of good American quality and worth telling." - federal writers guidebook to TN Census, Marriages & Wolford
