Elizabeth Bell Yearian
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1792
New Jersey, USA
Death: Mar. 11, 1847
Perry County
Illinois, USA

Elizabeth was the daughter of Robert Bell (for whom Bellville, Ohio, is named) and Mary Yost.
She married to George Yearian about 1811 in Belmont County, Ohio.
Her gravestone is now mostly enclosed in the trunk of a cedar tree and can no longer be read. It is in a line with other Yearian stones.

The Western Christian Advocate
April 23, 1847:
March 11 - In Perry, Ill., Elizabeth, wife of George Yearian, aged fifty five years.
She was born in Bellman (sic) county, 1792; was joined in marriage to George Yearian in 1812; united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in Richland County, O., in 1827; removed to Illinois, with her husband and ten children, in 1837, where she remained till the day of her death. As a companion, she was agreeable; as a parent, she took deep interest in the moral culture and spiritual welfare of her children; as a Christian, she was an example of piety, worthy of imitation. She took much pleasure in accommodating and administering to the wants of the wayworn itinerant. She was a subject of affliction for many years. During the past winter she became entirely helpless. Her spirit longed to be released from its prison-house. In the close of life, she enjoyed great peace. She exhorted her friends to meet her in heaven, then bade them a final farewell. To her, the arrow of death had lost its sting. She closed her eyes in sleep: it was a sleep of death. Thus she took her happy exit from the Church militant to the Church triumphant, amid the sorrows of relations and sympathizing friends, who mourn their loss, while they are satisfied that it is her gain.
