Yotty, Jacob C.

      B. 04/27/1853 D. 08/23/1920

Jacob Yotty, was born in Woodford Co., Ill., April 27, 1853; died at his home west of Kalona, Iowa, Aug. 23, 1920; aged 67 y. 3 m. 26 d. During the fore part of the summer he was taken to the Hospital at Iowa City, Ia., for an operation, during the process of which it was discovered that he was afflicted with a cancer of the liver, which had made such progress that all surgical help was of no avail. He recovered after the operation and returned to his home but the disease developed rapidly and in spite of all that friends and loving hands could do, he passed away. Early in life he united with the Mennonite Church, of which he was a member until his death. On Jan. 26, 1882, he was united in marriage with Annie Bauchman. To them were born four children: two sons, Chris S. and Bartholomew J., and two daughters: Elizabeth A., wife of John Speas and Jacobena C., wife of Jake Speas. All are living and with their mother were at his bedside at the time of his death. Besides this he is survived by one brother and one sister both of Ill., and five grandchildren, who with a host of friends mourn his departure. Father, mother, two brothers and two sisters preceded him to the great beyond. Funeral services were held at the East Union Church near Kalona, Iowa, conducted by Bishop S. C. Yoder after which the remains were taken to Iowa City and shipped to his old home near Cazenovia, Ill., which he left six years ago to make a new home for himself and family in Iowa. A service was conducted at Roanoke Church after which the remains were laid to rest in the Cemetery near by. 
The Body Reached Cazenovia Thursday and Funeral Was Held Friday, the body of the late Jacob Yotty, former resident of Cazenovia, who died at Kalona, Iowa, Monday of last week, reached Cazenovia Thursday morning and was taken to the home of the deceased's brother-in-law Peter Bachman. Funeral services were held at the residence at one o'clock Friday afternoon and the body was then taken to the Roanoke A.M. church where final services were held. Bishop Sam Garber was in charge of the services. There was a large attendance of former neighbors and friends at the services. The body was laid to rest in the cemetery near the church; his body was laid to rest beside the graves of his father and mother in the cemetery near Roanoke. 
A precious one from us is gone, 
A voice we loved is stilled, 
A place is vacant in our home 
Which never can be filled. 
God in his wisdom, recalled; 
The boon of love has given; 
And tho the body slumbers here, 
The soul is safe in Heaven.

Yotty, Joseph
