    FROM THE ELY DAILY TIMES dated 16 Oct 1944
    John Yelland, Pioneer, Dies in Local Hospital
    Death again struck the thinning ranks of Nevada Pioneers when John Yelland passed away 
    at one o'clock Saturday afternoon at a local hospital where he had been taken Wednesday 
    for treatnent. Although Mr.Yelland had suffered a severe illness last winter he had 
    made a remarkable recovery and he had been up town and visited friends just the day 
    before he had been taken to the hospital.
    He was born in Cornwall, England July 28, 1860, a son of Richard and Elizabeth Yelland. 
    His early life was spent in England and he came to this country when he was twenty-one 
    years old, going first to Georgetown, Colorado, where he remained about a year moving 
    from there to Cherry Creek which was then a thriving mining community. Two years later 
    he spent a short time in Eureka, Utah. He had been interested in mining but in 1885 
    took up ranching, settling in Spring Valley. He actively supervised his extensive 
    interests until fifteen years ago when he retired and his son Richard Yelland took over 
    the ranch management.
    In 1889, after establishing his home in Spring Valley, he made the trip to Salt Lake 
    City to meet Miss Ellen Kent, his childhood sweetheart, who was coming from her home in 
    Cornwall, Eagland. They were married in Salt Lake in February and then made the long 
    and arduous tip by stage coaeh to Spring Valley.
    They were the parents of six children two of whom survive. Their first son William died 
    when a year old and their secoud son Richard (Art) Yelland operates the ranching 
    property in Spring Valley. Miriam Yelland Yturiaga passed away 22 years ago and Henry 
    was the first White Pine Boy to be killed in World War I and it was in his memory that 
    Yelland Field was named. Miss Louise Yelland passed away 18 years ago. Mrs. Edith 
    Robison, who now makes her home in Vallejo, arrived here eary this morning after 
    having been advised of her father's death.
    Also surviving are eleven grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren and 4 brothers 
    and one sistsr in England.
    Although Mr. Yelland did not belong to any organization he has always taken an active 
    interest in civic and community affairs, and made many friends during the long years of 
    his residerce in White Pine County.
    Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock at Wilson-Bates chapel 
    and will be conducted by Rev. Howard R. Carey of the Methodist community church. 
    Interment will be in the family plot in Ely cemetery.
