Yocemento, Ellis Co., Kansas
Yocemento was founded in 1906 when a cement plant was being constructed by a group of investors from Hays. They hired Hungarian immigrants to do the construction.
Local Volga German and German farmers joined with the Hungarians to form a Catholic parish, however, the cement plant was a failure and most of the Hungarians left the area.
The following Volga German families settled in and around Yocemento:
Depperschmidt from Liebental
Eberle from Mariental
