From the Falmouth Outlook,
Yelton, age 67 years, died Friday, February
10th, at his home in Cleveland, Ohio. He had
been ill with heart trouble for the past two
years, and for the past six months he had
been confined to his bed. Jasper N. Yelton
was born at Butler, KY, where he spent the
greater part of his life. He was united in
marriage to Miss. Dora Caldwell, daughter of
the late A. L. Caldwell, on August 12, 1880.
She passed away on November 29, 1911, while
they were residents of Knoxville, TN. Some
time later he married the second time. He is
survived by his second wife and five
children: Everett Yelton of Brooklyn, N. Y.;
Finnell Yelton of Cincinnati; Wood H.
Yelton, of Covington, and Miss. Marian
Elizabeth Yelton, of Cleveland, Ohio.
He is also
survived by two brothers and one sister;
Lynn (s/b Leonard) and Edward Yelton, of
Covington and Mrs. William Wakefield, of
DeMossville. Mr. Yelton was a member of the
Christian church and a gentleman of high
ideals, honest and true to every obligation.
For many years he was in business at Butler,
and was known to every man, woman and child
in that vicinity. He had a faculty for
making friends and holding them, and the
announcement of his death was received with
much sorrow by the people of the northern
part of the county where he was best known.
Mr. Yelton was
as kind and gentle as a child, always
looking on the bright side of life, and had
a word of cheer for all those with whom he
came in contact.
The remains were brought back to his old
home at Butler on Sunday, and after funeral
services he was laid to rest in the Butler
cemetery. All the children with the
exception of Everett, of New York, attended
