Bio and Links
We have been interested in our family research for a long time. Close surnames of interest are: Hurse, Bowerman, Weatherman, Tarwater, Yeakley, Coyle, Clay, Cannon, Heller, Metteer, Whitaker, Hambleton, Elliott, Bales, Rooks, Jackson,Roop, Cox, Reed, Harris.

"I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are to come,
I looked back and saw my father, and his father, and all our fathers,
and in front to see my son, and his son, and the sons upon sons beyond.
And their eyes were my eyes.
As I felt, so they had felt and were to feel, as then, so now,
as tomorrow and forever. Then I was not afraid, for I was in a long line
that had no beginning and no end, and the hand of his father grasped
my father's hand, and his hand was in mine, and my unborn son took my
right hand, and all, up and down the line stretched from Time That Was
to Time That Is, and Is Not Yet, raised their hands to show the link,
and we found that we were one..."

Have been doing research on Yeakleys through the years, although not much lately. Just getting started again. Grew up in Council Grove, Ks. Been to Americus and Dunlap many times as a child. Friend helped me find your info. on grave site. Would be interesting to hear from you.

Savilla Alma Yeakley
James and Theona,
This note is relative to your memorial no. 51696005 for Savila Alma (Hayes) Yeakley. Please advise the source of the maiden name you have listed as “Hayes.” Everything I have been able to find tends to indicate that her maiden name was Harper.
• The 1870 U. S. federal census of Osage county, Kansas lists Cevilla A. Harper, age 4.
• The 1880 U. S. federal census of Osage county, Kansas lists Sevilla A. Harper, age 14.
It appears that she married first Bruce Yeakley (in 1896) and later George Yeakley (in 1906), but I have not found the marriage records yet.
FYI, my mother was a Yeakley, so I'm very interested in all information I can find on the Yeakley line.
Thanks in advance for whatever light you can shed on this.

RE: Henry Yeakley
Thank you you for this information. I was a little mixed up with Ruth Emeline and Ruth E Yeakley. How are the two Ruths related?

Henry Yeakley
Henry and Margaret had a daughter, Ruth. Is she the one who married a Lamb or a Harper?

RE: Mary Ann Moser Yeakley
Thanks for the reply, it seems strange that she is not recorded there. Since her husband is buried there and the obit states it. If you find anything keep me in mind.

Mary Ann Moser Yeakley
James and Theona, we have exchanged information in the past on the Yeakley/Yeakly family. I am writing about the Find A Grave memorial page you have made for Mary Ann Moser Yeakley,Find A Grave# 51694810. I had requested a photo of her grave stone and several in the area have worked on it and can not find her in the cemetery or on any of the cemetery lists.
I do have a copy of her obituary that states that she was buried in Fruitland Cemetery. Do you have any information as to why the paper states she was buried there and then there is no records of her buried there. Her husband was buried there in 1902.
