At the age of sixteen she was converted and united with the Evangelical church of which she might properly be styled a lineal descendant as her grandfather, Adam Miller, was one of fourteen lay members that ordained Jacob Albright as the first minister of that association.

Yeaman, J.W. -- On Saturday afternoon J.W. Yeaman was engaged in sawing rig stuff for A.B. McKay, in Mr. McKay's addition to Black & Offutt's planing mill.  He was ripping a piece of hickory plank into strips and when it had passed the belt saw in some way the end of it was caught by it and hurled against him with great force;  striking just at the pit of the stomach.  W.S. Offutt, who witnessed the accident, saw he seemed hurt and went to his assistance.  He was at once summoned and he was carried to his home.  Dr. Martin was called, but feared the injury was very serious.  He rallied, however, and knew and talked with his family from whom death was soon to separate him.  The end came at 8:30 o'clock on Sabbath morning, when he passed peacefully away surrounded by his sorrowing family and friends.  The accident occurred about 4:30 on Saturday afternoon.  Mr. Yeaman was 48 years old and was born near Mansfield, O., where his aged mother still resides.  He married Miss Jennie Walker, of Butler, Pa., who with her two boys -- Harry and Frank -- aged 17 and 15 respectively, survive him.  After marriage he returned to the west, but subsequently moved to Brady's Bend, Pa., and about six years ago came with his family to Grove City where they have since resided.  Comrade Yeaman has made a great many friends here.  All learned to respect and love him as acquaintance grew, and since gas was introduced here, it widened still more, he and Col. N.J. Maxwell having put gas fixtures into almost every house in town.  Comrade Yeaman went out in th 5th. Ohio Cavalry and was with Sherman on his famous march to the sea.  He was one of the charter members of Marion Craig Post, 325, G.A.R., was always active, wide-awake to his duty in all things.  He was also a member in good standing in the A.O.U.W., in which order he carried a policy for $2,000.  The post and lodge each attend the funeral in a body, and the very large number who assembled to witness the last sad rites over J.W. Yeaman is an evidence of the high esteem in which he was held by all.  The funeral occurred on Tuesay at 2 p.m. in armory hall, where Decoration Memorial services had been held on Sabbath evening.  The services were conducted by Rev. W.J. McConkey, assisted by Revs. J.A. Reed, A.R. Rich and J.B. McClelland.  Rev. McConkey preached an impressive sermon, taking for his text "But Thanks be to God which Giveth us the Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." I Cor. 16-57.  <<remainder of news story omitted here>>  [Mansfield Herald:  13 June 1889.]

Yeaman, Robert -- By a sad and melancholy dispensation of Providence, a good man has been gathered with his Fathers, and while friends are sorrowing for his departure, it is meet that a simple testimonial of respect and appreciation should be paid to his memory.  He was born in Washington County, Penna. on the 7th. day of July, 1811;  and died on the 10th. day of October, 1865, being 54 years, 3 months and 3 days old.  Almost the entire period of his life was spent in Richland County, Ohio, where he died.  For many years prior to his decease, he was a Ruling Elder in the Presbyterian church of Mansfield;  and enjoyed the highest confidence of all those with whom he thus communed, for Christian charity and an humble and consistent walk and conversation.  Those who knew the deceased best, those who were his neighbors and life-long friends, must unite in testifying most lovingly to the excellence of his character, both as a husband, father, citizen and Christian;  kind to all, ever reaching out a hand of sympathy, especially to the poor, dealing justly with every one, he drew men to him and held them as by a magnet.  Although his years were not few, still they were not so many, that friends might not have hoped that they would have been extended longer, that the light and influence of a good man's life and example might longer bless the world.  And such was Robert Yeaman.  At death, no retrospect of misspent time, or neglected opportunities for good, cast dark shadows on his future;  but with an assurance that he had been permitted of God to do something, yea much, in his sphere, for the good of mankind, and for the Church of Christ, at peace with the world, and as we humbly trust with his God, he has gone to his rest.  -- Oct. 23d., 1865.  J.

Young, Artie -- Mr. and Mrs. Norman Young, residing on Pleasant Avenue, between Fourth and Bloom streets, were afflicted at 1:30 this afternoon by the sudden death of their eleven-years-old son, Artie.  The circumstances connected with the sad and violent death of the boy are as follows:  About six weeks ago the boy had diphtheria and after a severe struggle he recovered.  The disease however, left its mark upon him in the shape of a paralyzed throat so that he has been unable to eat solid food since his sickness.  About four weeks ago he was attacked with a bleeding of the throat, which so weakened and emaciated him that his former acquaintances did not recognize him.  On account of his weak condition he has been in bed since the hemorrhage of the throat.  Today for his dinner his mother prepared him a plate of noodle soup and after providing for him the remainder of the family went to dinner.  Suddenly they heard the dishes fall to the floor in the boy's bedroom and rushing in they found the lad in spasms, his face horribly distorted.  The father at once suspected that the boy was choking and did all in his power to relieve him, but it was no use.  The poor little fellow died in his father's arms, while his mother, two brothers and a sister were sorrowing on-lookers.  Mr. Young is a baker employed by Ettinger Bros., on North Main Street, and has the sympathy of his many friends.  The arrangements for the funeral had not been made at the hour of going to press.   [Richland Shield & Banner:  05 December 1891]

Young, Roy Johnson -- Roy Young, who was so terribly kicked by a horse last Tuesday morning, died Wednesday at 10 o'clock p.m., without regaining consciousness.  The physicians saw that the deadly blow of the horse's hoof had done its work and realized that death was imminent.  However, everything possible was done for the injured man but he was beyond medical aid and passed peacefully away.  He experienced no suffering.  After the vicious blow had been dealt him until the hour of his death he was incapable of realizing for even a moment that he was soon to be called to the other world, and never uttered a word indicating that he had any knowledge of the dreadful accident that had happened to him.  The bereaved family, bowed in grief by the sudden departure of  a dearly-loved son and brother, have the sympathy of all in the trying hour of sorrow.  Roy was a model young man, a favorite among his companions, who greatly feel their loss as well as the stricken family.  The funeral services were held at the home of the deceased's parents, Mr. & Mrs. S.B. Young on Friday at 1:30 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Dr. H.L. Canfield.  The high esteem in which Roy Young was held can only be judged by the immense concourse of friends that followed the remains to the place of interment in Beulah Cemetery, and turned sadly away to learn in time, the lesson, that love is stronger than death, and that it can outlast all our sorrows.  Roy Johnson Young was born January 25, 1872 and was therefore 25 years, 9 months and 22 days of age at the time of his death.  He was the youngest child of Simon and Olive Howard Young, living three miles south of Bellville and was widely and well known throughout this part of Richland County.  The circumstances attending Roy's death were exceedingly painful and affective to the family and friends.  A sudden death is always a shock to surviving friends;  but it is especially severe, when, as in this case, one who was in the prime and vigor of young manhood, honest, true, kind, helpful, loving and beloved, is stricken down without warning.  Roy was greatly beloved by his family and kindred and had many warm friends outside of the charmed circle of home.  All who knew him respected him, and all speak of him in terms of praise.  [Bellville Messenger:  25 November 1897]

Young, Samuel J.C. -- Samuel J.C. Young, an old resident of Mansfield, died at his home, No. 63 South Main Street, at 7:25 this morning of a complication of diseases, from which he had been suffering for some months.  The deceased was well known in this city and was a brother-in-law of the late John Y. Glessner, formerly proprietor of the SHIELD.  Mr. Young was born at Charleston, Virginia, in 1826 and came to this city in 1848, accepting the position of city editor of the SHIELD, which he held for many years.  A number of years ago Mr. Young was considered quite wealthy, but business reverses sapped his fortune.  When Mr. Glessner, his brother-in-law died Mr. Young, as administrator, settled his estate, since which time he has not been actively engaged in any business.  The deceased was never married, but leaves a number of relatives, among them the following nephews and neices:  John Y.
