Enos Braden Yeagley was born in Williams Co. Ohio Nov. 5, 1854 and passed away in Salina, Ks. Nov. 5, 1916 at 9 P. M. aged 62 years.
He was married in 1875 to Miss Adeline McQueen. To this union were born twelve children of whom eight are living as follows: Christopher Yeagley of Shelton, Nebraska; Frederick Yeagley of Colby, Kansas; Delilah Bear of Salina, Kansas; Arthur Yeagley of Sylvan Grove, Kansas; Herschal Yeagley of Salina, Kansas; Elvina Yeagley of Kansas City, Missouri; Florence Langerman of Salina, Kansas; Josephine Fuller of Salina, Kansas. Many were the pleasant days this couple spent together with their children. He came to Kansas in 1879 where he had since resided.
On Nov. 9, 1904 the faithful wife of his youth slipped away from earth to go be with Jesus. Her lonely companion never could quite adjust himself to life without her. He looked forward to their reunion in the city of God. More than 10 months ago, his health failed from which he never fully recovered but returned to God the Giver of more abundant.
He was a member of the Free Methodist Church at Miltonvale, Kansas.
He leaves besides his children, two sisters, Mrs. Elvina Kunkle of Wilson, Kansas and Mrs. Georgia Owen of Miltonvale, Kansas and one brother Herschel Smith of Miltonvale, Kansas, together with a large number of neices, nephews and grandchildren and many friends to sincerely mourn his departure from the home of his daughter, Mrs. Langerman in Salina, Kansas.
The body was taken to Excelsior, Kansas for burial. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. C. M. Snyder, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Wilson, Kansas.
