Burial: June 1937, Riverside Cemetery, Falmouth, Pendleton County, Kentucky

Fact 1: known to family as Emmie

 

Notes for CAREY MENZIE YELTON:

Carey lost his right arm, just below the elbow, in a farming accident. Family history states that he tied off the stump and drove himself to the doctor! My father also claimed that "Pap Yelton" could side-lift a Model-T off the ground with his one hand.

Carey Menzie Yelton

 

Carey M. Yelton, aged 76 years, passed on suddenly at his home on Barclay

street, Tuesday morning, October 1, 1935, following a heart attack.  Mr. Yelton

had been in poor health for over a year, but his passing came as a shock to his

family and friends.

Mr. Yelton was born in Campbell County near Butler on Feb 12, 1859, and was

the son of the late Mortimer and Catherine Newkirk Yelton.  He followed the

vocation of a farmer until a few years ago, when he retired, and he and Mrs.

Yelton came to Falmouth to reside.

On June 12, 1883, Mr. Yelton and Miss Emma Florence Fields were united in

marriage, and to this union three children were born.  One daughter, Lucy, passed

on in infancy.  A daughter, Mrs. Clarence Allender of Nicholasville,

Jessamine county and a son, Horace J. Yelton of Owenton, Owen county, survive.

Besides his devoted widow and children, Mr. Yelton is survived by one sister, Mrs.

Kate Montgomery of Liberty Ridge.  He is also survived by one half-sister, Mrs.

Grace Shipp, and a half-brother, Chester Yelton, of Cincinnati.

Mr. Yelton joined the Lenoxburg Methodist Church in early boyhood and lived a

fine Christian life.  He was a good father, husband and neighbor, and he will

be missed sadly, as his going is the first time the intimate family circle

has been broken since the death of the babe years ago.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the

Falmouth Methodist Church, to be conducted by Rev. E. L. Griffy.  Burial will

take place in Riverside Cemetery.  Funeral directors Thomas and Parramore are in

charge of the arrangements.

The casket bearers are Menzie Montgomery, Ernest Montgomery, Arthur Yelton,

Ambrose Fields, Kenzie Fields and Earl Allender.

From Nancee Allender;

 

Hi Suzanne,

I have the following children of Robert & Margaret Broun Yelton:

C   2 May 1708  Alexander Yeltoun   pts. Robert Y. & Margaret Broun

C  23 Jun 1709   Eupham Yeltoun     pts. Robert Y. & Margaret Broun

C   8 May 1712  James Yelton          pts. Robert Y. & Margaret Broun

C   1 Feb 1711   John Yelton            pts. Robert Y. & Margaret Broun

B 26 Jan 1707    Robert Yeltoun       pts. Robert Y. & Margaret Broun

There are also these entries from the same location - Edinburgh, Parish Midlothian

B 27 Aug 1714    ?  Yelton               pt. James Yelton 

M 21 Apr 1708    Helen Yelton          m. James Simpson

M  2 Jul 1702      Marion Yeltoun       m. James Spottiswood

 

However, I've never been able to find them anywhere else - not births, not

as parents, no deaths - Strange isn't it.  And, if this family was ours, why

weren't there any Robert's or Alexander's or Margaret's  in the early

generations here in the U.S.??????

 

 

 

ALLENDER

 

My great grand parents Clarence & Nora went out to tend

the livestock one morning and left Earl( my grandfather) to watch over

Florence. She was tied into a small child's rocking chair beside the

hearth. When she started to cry he began to rock her. Being a child

himself he was unaware that the chair was moving toward the fire as it

rocked. As a result the bottoms of her feel came too close to the fire

and became burned. They became infected and she developed Pneumonia and

died.
