John F. Yerian
The sudden deaths of Mrs. John Johnson and her brother Joseph Jenkins on May 10th and 15th respectively was followed by that of John W. Yearian on May 19th.
Yearian came to town from his Liberty township home, and shortly after two o'clock he had a conversation with Ellsworth D. Kelly in which he spoke of his plans for planting this season. Then he went to the store of William E. Evans and while there he spoke of not feeling well. Going out on the street, he walked as far as Gilbert's restaurant, and there he fell with his head toward the door. Arch McCoy and Policeman B. T. Hughes carried him over to the City office in the public park and Dr. A. G. Ray was summoned, but he was dead before the doctor arrived. He breathed once or twice while the men were carring bim [sic] across Main, but he never spoke after he fell.
The body was taken to the undertaking rooms of Charles L. Wood to be prepared for burial and the family was notified. His home was on a famr [sic] in northeastern Liberty, and he was about fifty-nine years old, his birthday being June 18.
There survive one daughter Mrs. Robert Whitaker, and six sons T. J. Yerian, employed with the Sun Coal Co., James and Howard as miners at Jisco. Fred employed at Star. Allen at the Crown Pipe and Bert at the Bit Works. Another son named Walter died some time ago, in Madison county. The mother is living. The funeral was held May 21, with Charles L.

Martha Jane Yerian
In Memory of Martha Jane Yerian
Worn by the weight of years, after a life of service which bless her home and community, Mrs. Martha Jane Yerian quietly passed into the great beyond at 7 o'clock, Saturday evening September 30, 1916.
Mrs. Yerian by inheritance possessed a strong body and by this strength she had been able to withstand many hardships and she came down to old age scarcely knowing what sickness in her own body meant. So it was that is was not disease that caused her death, but a general wearing out of the physical system. Her death came at the home of her son William at Resaca, Madison county, Ohio to which place she had gone to spend her declining days.
Mrs. Yerian was born in Holmes county, Ohio, December 12, 1839 and was the daughter of John and Lydia Rugg Mikesell. When a small girl, Mrs. Yerian moved with her parents to Jackson county where the greater part of her life was spent.
In 1862 Mrs. Yerian was united in marriage to Samuel Yerian and to them nine children were born. Of this family four are dead: Herbert, John, Anice and Sanford. Five sons survive: William S. of Resaca, Oscar B. of Boulder, Colorado, Jacob J. at London, OHio, Charles E. and Lewis A. of Madison county.
The husband and father, Samuel Yerian, preceded his wife in death by a little more than a year, having died August 8, 1815.
Mrs. Yerian was a member of the Christian church, but associated herself with other churches when there was no organization of her denomination in the community.
The older residents of the locality will remember her many acts of neighborliness. She was much sought in times of sickness and distress and she never failed to answer an appeal for help when her own home duties would permit.
Her long life has been lived used fully and in the service of others. After life's toil and hardships she has laid down the burden and found rest of body and peace to her soul.
