Edward Yockey. Another old veteran of Monroe County, Ohio has gone to attend roll call where there is no war or rebel prisoners.

Edward Yockey was born near Miltonsburg, Ohio in 1841, and died from dropsy and heart failure at Smithland, Iowa, February 19, 1919.

He enlisted in August 1862 and served until June 1865 in Company "C," 116th O.V.I. He was wounded in June 1864 and was prisoner for nine months in Andersonville, Georgia where over 14,000 of our brave boys died from hunger and exposure.

In 1865 he went to Smithland, Iowa and married a Miss Smith.

He leaves to mourn his death his wife, one son and two daughters, one brother, John Yockey. He was an uncle of J.H. and L.P. Lang, Miss Lottie Lang, Mrs. P. Schumacher, Mrs. Frank Schumacher, and Mrs. Charles Burkhart of this place, and many other relatives and old soldier friends. Rest in peace until we meet again.
