Youens is common in rural Missouri, northern part of the state as well as
Ozarks Plateau. When I was at a meeting in Rolla MO, after having dinner at
one of the best eateries there, our efficient and polite waitress (sorry,
server) said, with a big friendly smile, "Youens all have a good evening."
(to a group, not just to me) Figure 114 of Kurath's WORD GEOGRAPHY shows
you'ns in western PA, eastern OH, WV, wVA, wNC. I use my spelling because
of the way it's said in Missouri.
