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.

family circle has been broken since the
