Final Summons Comes to Well Known Citizen of the County
Curtis B. Yount, a native of Clinton county and long a resident of Frankfort, passed to the spiritual realm yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock p.m.
Mr. Yount was born to Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton Yount on August 25, 1861, near Hamilton, Clinton county, Indiana. In the year 1878, he intermarried with Phoebe Mattix and was blessed with a happy married life until their earthly ties were severed by the passing of his wife and companion on July 7, 1924. Nine children were born to this union, seven of whom survive. He resided at Mattix Corner, north of Frankfort until March 4, 1921, on which date he, with his family, moved to Frankfort. From that date until his passing, he dwelt in this community and during the last five years made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Theodore Cripe.
For many years Mr. Yount engaged in the real estate business in Frankfort, individually and in association with the last M. B. Fisher. Honesty, perseverance and sound judgment marked his work. As a consequence, he became successful in his occupation and continued so until ill health and depressing economical conditions forced him to retire from active participation.
That Universal Law governs all life was the tenant of his spiritual belief. His thorough investigation of the phenomena of nature lead to personal convictions which removed all doubt and fear from his mind and convince him of a future life and eternal existence. His knowledge and understanding of Universal Law enabled him to make the transition quietly and beautifully.
He is survived by three daughters, four sons, one sister and three brothers, The following are his surviving children: Mrs. Theodore Cripe, Grover Yount and Ora Yount, all of Frankfort; Mrs. Dewey Kelley of Whiting, Ind.; Hamilton Yount of Chicago, Ill., Benjamin Yount of Cincinnati, O.; and Mrs. Dale Powell of Rossville, Ind. His surviving brothers and sister are: Henry Yount of Peru, Ind.; Melvin Yount of Mulberry, Ind.; Marvin Yount of Brookston, Ind.; and Mrs. John Black of Frankfort.
Funeral services will be held at the residence of Mrs. Cripe at 401 East Jefferson street on Wednesday at 2 o'clock p.m. The Rev. H. G. Burroughs of Chicago will conduct the services and the interment will take place at the Bunnell cemetery.
