Mr. Max Yeager one of White

day evening January 15th 1917.
; He was born in Germany in 1848.

years returning to Germany in
1852: the following year they re
turned to United States At this
time Mr Yeager was five years
of age. The famiiy settled in
Whitefield County, Georgia,
where he spent his boyhood days.

Mr. Yeager died of that dread
disease cancer. Altho his suf
fering was intense he was very
patient. He never murmured
nor complained. All that a love
ing companion and devoted sons
and daughters could do was done
to relieve his suffering It seem
ed that no sacrifices was to great
to make for husband and father.
We have never seen a family
more devoted than his family was
in his sickness. Often during his
sickness he would tell his fanilv
not to grieve for him, for he was
ready to die. and his suffering
would be over. He seemed to
grow stronger ^in the faith until
the last. The day he died he
shouted praises to God. He call
ed his family and exclaimed “I
am so happy: 1 am happy. Truly
a good man has passed from the
scenes of earth to the life beyond.
The high esteem in which he was
I held was manifested by tbe forge
j crowed that attended his fur 'V
