Jacob was the 8th of 10 children of George Yearian and his 1st wife, Elizabeth Bell.
He came with his family from Richland County, Ohio, to Perry County, Illinois, about 1838.
During the California gold rush he travelled there with brothers Frederick and George, returning to Illinois by ship via Cape Horn.
He married on May 18, 1856, Perry County, Illinois, to Mary Jane Purcell.
About 1868, Jacob and brother George went out to Montana Territory and started a placer mining operation on Jeff Davis Creek in Beaverhead County, later selling a one third interest to brother Joseph Bell Yearian. As the gold ran out, the brothers took up ranching and other businesses at Junction, Idaho, a now disappeared town near present day Leadore. A creek that ran thru Jacob's land is still called Jacob's Creek.
The Semi-Weekly Idaho Recorder, Aug 22, 1902:
DIED - At Salt Lake, Wednesday, August 20, 1902, at 5:45 p.m.: Jacob Yearian aged about 73 years.
The deceased has been ill for the past six months of brain trouble and was taken to Salt Lake about six weeks ago by his wife and son for medical treatment, and although everything possible was done, all was of no avail and he passed away as above noted.
The remains will be brought to Junction for interment. The funeral services will be held Sunday.
The deceased was one of the oldest settlers and most respected citizens of the county, having lived in the upper Lemhi valley since 1867. He was a man of sterling worth and his generous hospitality and kindly nature endeared him to all whom he met. The hearts of all will be saddened by his death.
He leaves a wife, two sons, G.F. and Albert, and a daughter, Mrs. H.H. Hays of Junction, and many relatives to mourn his demise. The sympathy of all goes out to the sorrowing ones.
