Richard Yarmon was born June 22, 1858, in Seneca County, near Tiffin Ohio, and died September 5, 1932, at Elm Creek, Nebraska.
In 1872, he came to Nebraska with his parents, who with the Herring, Alspaugh, Sears, and several other families, drove through in covered wagons, the trip taking just three months. The Yarmon family located on a homestead about four miles northwest of where the town of Palmer now stands.
On September 15, 1847, Richard was united in marriage to Sarah Gage.
For one year they operated a hotel in Palmer, one block west of the Burlington depot. Later they moved to a farm about five miles northwest of here, which Mr. Yarmon had homesteaded several years before. From there they moved to a farm in Gage Valley. subsequently they made their home in St. Paul for several years, moving from there to Comstock.
For the past two years they lived at Elm Creek, where Mr. Yarmon passed away on their forty fifth wedding anniversary.
He had not been well for several years, and had been confined to his room for several months.
He leaves to mourn his passing, his devoted wife, three brothers, O.L. Yarmon and Frank Yarmon, both of Silver Creek, and A. V. Yarmon, of Wahoo; two sisters, Mrs. Laura Presley, of Lake, Michigan, and Mrs. Frank Folsom, of Magnolia, Minnesota; two adopted children, Mazie Henderson and Clayton Bishop, and one grandson, Raymond.
The funeral was held from the Methodist Church in this town Saturday, September 17, Rev. W. R. Warren officiating, and interment was made in Rose Hill Cemetery.
Our village and its people ever held a warm corner in his heart. It was here that his best years were spent, and when his last hour came, and the God of eternity called him to his everlasting rest, it was his desire that beneath the beautiful trees of our Silent City, overlooking the valley where he had spent so many happy years, should be the eternal abiding place of all that was mortal of him.
