    L. Yearwood, formerly of this place, who with his family moved 
    to Howell, Indiana many years ago. Mr. Yearwood is reported critically 
    ill with Bright's disease. Mr. Yearwood will be remembered by many of 
    the older families of Mt. Vernon, as he was one of six brothers and one 
    sister who resided here. Samuel, William, Robert and Dave Yearwood and 
    Mrs. Buck Oakley, as sister are dead. Joe Yearwood of Mt. Vernon and 
    Aaron L. Yearwood of Howell are the only survivors. Joe Yearwood is
