    Father Yelland was born in Cornwall,  England on the 15th day of March 1806.    His first visit to America was in the spring of 1828.  After staying about 3 years, he again crossed the ocean and married the worthy mother in Israel that survives him. He again  arrived in America landing at Philadelphia in 1831, where he was engaged in steamboat engineering for several years after which he went to Boston, Mass., where he followed the same business for some time when he was appointed Government Inspector of Steamships in Boston Harbor, which position he held for 13  years.  He came west in 1855,  locating at Jo Daviess County,  Illinois, on a farm where he resided with his family until they were married and settled, when he sold out and came to Iowa.    Settling in Franklin County near Sheffield living with his only surviving daughter until his death.    Father Yelland has been a member of the M. E. Church and a consistent Christian for about 80 years, and strictly temperate in all things.
    In an unfinished letter left by him written to a nephew,  the following extract appears; "The course of time rolls on, whether we improve it or not.  We should all look for the faith which can remove and sink the mountain to a plain; that saves whoever on Jesus calls and perfect him in love". 
    The deceased leaves 3 children to mourn his loss, 1 daughter and two sons.
