Ruth Emaline Julian was the wife of Henry J. Yeakly, married 22 Feb 1820. She was the mother of Elijah Yeakly born 15 May 1822 and William Pugh Yeakley born 17 March 1824.
Dunkirk Graveyard is one of the oldest in the county. It is full of graves, and doubtless contains the bodies of many old settlers.
It has, however, but very few tombstones, and the places of burial of these ancient pioneers can never be known.
Great numbers of rough, unlettered stoups are found thickly set over the cemetery, and many unnoted hillocks raise their melancholy heads
above the consecrated ground, but they yield no token of the one who may chance to lie buried deep beneath them.
Why should it be thus? And shall this state of things continue through the ages to come? God forbid!
