PITTSBURG DAILY HEADLIGHT: Feb. 2, 1904.: The infant son of Mr & Mrs Geo Adams departed this life Tuesday Jan. 26, age 1 year and 26 days. The little one suffered with stomache trouble for the past two months until the death angel visited the bedside and took its little spirit to the God that gave it. Our loss and heaven's gain.

The Yale Cemetery is the final resting place for many African-American coal miners and their families. It was established in 1893. Most of these coal miners had originally come from the South in hopes of a better future for themselves and their families, and the abundance of mines in southeatern Kansas at the begining of the twentieth century proved an irresistible opportunity. Even though the community of Yale is in Kansas, the cemetery, located on the east side of State Line Road, three-quarters of a mile north of Highway 160 (which runs just east of the town of Mindenmines), is in Missouri.

The cemetery has evidence of at least 248 graves with only about 15 marked with headstones. Debbie Burns is the one that compiled this list and information.
