Gaines Neilson Yokeley

Obituary of Jasper N. Gaines, Brunswick, Missouri.

After many years of affliction, the spirit of Jasper N. Gaines, of Brunswick, Mo., was freed from its earthly tenement on October 25, 1914. For more than thirty years Mr. Gaines was almost totally blind, and other afflictions of late years had made his life one of suffering, until death brought its blessed release.

Jasper N. Gaines was a son of Preston and Sarah Gaines, who were pioneer citizens of Chariton County. He was born at the old Gaines homestead, near Triplett, Mo., in 1842. He enlisted in the Missouri State service at Brunswick, Mo., May 3, 1861, in Capt. William M. Neilson's company, 3d Regiment, 3d Division, and was discharged November 28, 1861, on the expiration of his term of enlistment. He went to Kentucky shortly after his discharge in Missouri and enlisted under General Morgan, serving faithfully to the end. He was married in 1879 to Mrs. Cordelia Yokeley, and to them were born three sons, two of whom survive him with their mother and an adopted daughter. His home had been in Brunswick, Mo., for about fifteen years.
