    FROM THE ELY DAILY TIMES dated 29 Nov 1926
    Lonis A. Yelland Fatally Injured
    Receives Internal Injuries While Roping WiId Horse, Entangled in Rope
    Louis Abner Cleveland Yelland, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Yelland, pioneers of Spring 
    valley, and one of the oldest families in this section of the state, died Saturday 
    night as a result of injuries received while roping a bronco. He and Frank Garret, 
    trapper, had roped the cayuse and were both standing on the ground in the corral 
    holding to the rope in an effort to subdue the animal. The horse lunged forward quickly 
    and jerked the rope from the hands of Garrett, but in some way Yelland became entangled 
    and was whipped about over the rocks before he freed himself from the entanglement. It 
    was not thought that he was badly hurt as he arose from the ground laughing and walked 
    over to his saddle horse, which was only a short distance away, mounted and rode 
    towards his home.
    Yelland's friends say that he was a man who rarely complained even when in pain, and 
    for this reason they did not know to what extent he was suffering from the time he was 
    hurt Saturday at noon until he died at l:00 a.m. Sunday morning. Just before he retired 
    that evening he seemed drowsy and went to sleep in his chair, which he was not 
    accustomed to doing. His wife awakened him and he went to his room and retired. She 
    noticed he was somewhat pale but was not alarmed, as her husband made no reference to 
    being in pain. During the night Mrs. Yelland heard her husband gasping for breath and 
    when she spoke to him there was no answer-he was dead. An autopsy disclosed the fact 
    that he died of a ruptured liver.
    Young Yellaad was a man of fine habits and characteristics and by reason of his 
    sterling qualities and affable manner he had a host of friends in White Pine county who 
    will be deeply grieved to learn of his untimely death. He was born on the old Yelland 
    homestead at Nigger creek, October 26, 1895, and has spent his 3l years as a resident 
    of White Pine county. He was married ten years ago to Miss Marion Phillips, daughter of 
    the late William Phillips, of Muncy creek, and Mrs. Phillips. Louis was named after the 
    late A. C. Cleveland, who was an outstanding figure for many years in this state. The 
    deceased is survived by his wife aud five children, and his aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. 
    John Yelland, a sister, Mrs. Lloyd Robison, and a brother, R. A. Yelland, all residents 
    of Spring Valley. The names of the children are, Beth, Henry, Kent, William and
    Margaret, the oldest being eight and the youngest three years of age.
    Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock, at St. Bartholomew's 
    church, with Rev. Geddes officiating. Interment will be in the Ely cemetery, in the 
    family plot.
