History of Williams County, Ohio by William Henry Shinn;
published 1905.

GEORGE M. YEAGLEY, a prosperous farmer near Melbern, is
the son of James K. P. and Mary Catharine (Gallatin) Yeagley and
the grandson of Andrew and Catharine Yeagley, both natives of
Pennsylvania, who settled in Williams county about the year 1852
and there spent the remainder of their lives. His maternal
grandparents, John and Lydia (Saul) Gallatin, were both natives of
Pennsylvania, the former being born September 10, 1818, and the
latter August 24, 1819. The parents of John Gallatin, Jacob and
Elizabeth (Buttler) Gallatin, removed from their native State to
Stark county, O., September 13, 1840, where both died. John
Gallatin was reared on a farm and educated in the common schools
of his native county. In 1852 he removed to Williams county and
located on a farm where he spent the remainder of his days. In
politics he was affiliated with the Democratic party, being an
earnest advocate of the principles of that organization. To John
Gallatin and wife four children were born. They are: Daniel B., a
resident of Washington D. C.; Silas Saul, deceased; Mary
Catharine, the mother of the subject of this sketch, and Willie H.,
deceased. John Gallatin died April 15, 1895. His widow, who still
lives on the homestead, is the daughter of John and Catherine
(Asper) Saul, both natives of Pennsylvania, who came to Williams
county in 1854, where both died. Here follow the names of the
children of John and Catherine Saul: Eliza, born March 18, 1814;
George B., born September 10, 1815; John, born September 18,
1817; Lydia, born August 24, 1819; Sarah, born January 16,
1822; David, born May 15, 1824; Catherine, born October 31,
1828. The first five were born in Pennsylvania and the last two in
Stark county, O. George M. Yeagley is the son as stated above of
James K. P. and Mary C. (Gallatin) Yeagley, both natives of Ohio.
James K. P. Yeagley grew to manhood on a farm, receiving a
liberal education in the common schools and in a select school in
Williams Center. By occupation he is a farmer and in politics a
Republican, and together with his wife a member of the United
Brethren church. He is now a resident of Jasper county, Ind., his
wife having died August 15, 1870. To their marriage three
children were born: George M.; James C. of Nebraska, and the
third child died in infancy. George M. Yeagley was born in Center
township, June 6, 1866. Having lost his mother when four years
old he was reared by his maternal grandparents, John Gallatin and
wife. He received his education in the pubic schools of his home
county and in the Fayette, O., Normal. By occupation he is a
successful farmer, owning one hundred and forty acres of very
fertile and valuable land, and in politics is an independent. On
December 24, 1889, he was wedded to Miss Jennie Fisher, the
daughter of George and Elizabeth (Poorman) Fisher, a farmer of
Center township, where he has resided for sixty-three years. To
Mr. Yeagley and wife three children have been born. They are:
Carrie Grace, born January 17, 1892; Clarence Herbert, born
December 5, 1894, and Florence Carmon, born 11, 1899.
