JAMES E. YEISER DIES MONDAY AT AGE OF 85 YEARS

James Edward Yeiser, who for nearly 50 years had lived in Canon City, died at his home, 315 River street, at 10:50 Monday evening.
In failing health for two years, his condition had been grave for the past six weeks. Death was due to heart trouble and infirmities of age.
Mr. Yeiser would have been 86 years of age on August 27. He was born that day in 1862 at Makin county, Mo., spent his youthful years there and in Iowa.
In the middle 1890's he moved to Colorado, residing in Trinidad for two years, and moving from there to Canon City about the turn of the century. He was a retired coal miner and had done custodian work at local business buildings in the years past.
Mr. Yeiser favored the Baptist faith. He was one of the early members of the old Colored Burial association, which for many years was both a social and business organization in Canon City but which ceased to function some time ago.
Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Maggie Williams Yeiser, to whom he was married here on October 25, 1922; a grandson, Frank P. Yeiser of Fresno, Calif.; and two nieces living in Iowa.
The body of Mr. Yeiser is in care of the Holt mortuary. Funeral arrangements will be announced later.
