This name is a very difficult one to research. My grandfather always said that their name was a "yard long" and was shortened by his grandfather. Family story is that they took every third or so letter. The name could have read "Y---a---k---er.  (Or, the story could have been that they took the first letters and then the last??) In the St. Louis City Directory for 1936, there was a woman named Mrs. Lucy Yakeleviezur. She was a maid at the City Hospital and she lived on Ann Ave. The same year, there was a Laura Cain living on Ann Ave. And Josephine Yaker was listed as a nurse in the 1940 directory. Just some notes to get anyone that wants to think about it thinking!
