Yancey, Richard
DIED

At Columbus, on the 2d day of July, 1875, at the City Hotel, RICHARD, youngest son of William and Agnes Yancey.

"Whom the Gods love die young," was said of yore.
And many deaths do they escape by this:
The death of Friends, and that which slays even more,
The death of Friendship, Love, Youth--all that is
Excep' mere breath; and since the silent shore
Awaits at last even those whom longest miss
The old Archer's shafts, perhaps the early grave
Which men weep over may be meant to save."

Colorado Citizen, July 8, 1875
