Jasper N. 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 the funeral.
