Death: Jun. 12, 1908

Elijah P. Yarnell Sr. was the son of Philip Yarnell and Mary Crawford. In 1850, he was living in Wayne Co., Ohio, with his Aunt Phidelia Crawford Zimmerman and her 2nd husband Oren Eddy, his two cousins Levi and Elenor Zimmerman, and his sister Edith.

Elijah was married three times:
He married 1) Sarah Strawhacker in Feb 1860. They were the parents of two children, Charles H. and Marie Loella Yarnell. Sarah died in 1864.

Elijah married 2) Margaret Turck on 1 Jan 1867 in Jefferson City, Bremer, Iowa (now Denver, Iowa). She was the widow of Thomas Neal Likins, who died in the Civil War.
Elijah and Margaret were the parents of two children; Eugene and Everard (or possibly Everett). Margaret died on 23 Oct 1873 in Labette Co., Kansas.

Elijah married a third time, to Ardilla Jane Beard. They were the parents of six children; May, Mark Garfield, Earl P., Elijah Philip Jr., Adolph Besse, and Clark S. Yarnell.

The marriage possibly ended in divorce, certainly in separation. Elijah moved to Chicago, Illinois, in 1893. In 1894, Ardilla reported she was a widow, as well as in the 1900 census.

Elijah was a resident of the U.S. National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers in 1900 in Jefferson, Montgomery, Ohio Central Branch.
