Carey Menzie Yelton

 Carey M. Yelton, aged 76 years, passed on suddenly at his home on Barclay street, Tuesday morning, October 1, 1935, following a heart attack.  Mr. Yelton had been in poor health for over a year, but his passing came as a shock to his family and friends. Mr. Yelton was born in Campbell County near Butler on Feb 12, 1859, and was he son of the late Mortimer and Catherine Newkirk Yelton.  He followed the vocation of a farmer until a few years ago, when he retired, and he and Mrs. Yelton came to Falmouth to reside.

On June 12, 1883, Mr. Yelton and Miss Emma Florence Fields were united in marriage, and to this union three children were born.  One daughter, Lucy, passed on in infancy.  A daughter, Mrs. Clarence Allender of Nicholasville, Jessamine county and a son, Horace J. Yelton of Owenton, Owen county, survive. Besides his devoted widow and children, Mr. Yelton is survived by one sister, Mrs. Kate Montgomery of Liberty Ridge.  He is also survived by one half-sister, Mrs. Grace Shipp, and a half-brother, Chester Yelton, of Cincinnati.

Mr. Yelton joined the Lenoxburg Methodist Church in early boyhood and lived a fine Christian life.  He was a good father, husband and neighbor, and he will be missed sadly, as his going is the first time the intimate family circle has been broken since the death of the babe years ago.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the Falmouth Methodist Church, to be conducted by Rev. E. L. Griffy.  Burial will take place in Riverside Cemetery.  Funeral directors Thomas and Parramore are in charge of the arrangements.

The casket bearers are Menzie Montgomery, Ernest Montgomery, Arthur Yelton, Ambrose Fields, Kenzie Fields and Earl Allender.
