Yale--Crawford; Coal mining area;

Yates Center--Woodson; First named Bath, then Chellis, then
Kalida; 1875 town was laid out on the crest of the divide between
the Neosho and Verdigris Rivers; U.P. R.R. from Wichita;

Yoder--Reno; German name; 

Yuma was located about 3 miles west of
   Concordia, Kansas, in Cloud county on highway 28 going toward
   Jamestown. When I grew up in Concordia in the 1950-60's, Yuma had a
   sign post at some grain elevators there. I think the grain elevators
   are gone and so is the sign. Don't know if there was a community
   living there in the past or knot. The Cloud County Historical Society
   in Concordia should know.
