I have been looking in the old newspapers for St Lawrence Co and came across this.
Mr. Alex Yerden and daugh-* ter, Mrs. Farrell of* Alexandria Bay visited relatives in town this week.
Leland Yerden, 42, son of Nick Yerden, died Tuesday shortlyr before noon from injuries he received when he fell from one of the town truck* engaged in working on thes Oak Point Road. The -accident -happened ai, about 10:30 in the morning, and Mr. Yerden was put into'the car of—Le«_ Marsaw of Oak Point, when I t ^was seen that he was rather badly injniv ed. He was taken-to the office of Dr. Graves^ in Brie'r Hill, where he received first aid treatment "and .then rushed on to Hepburn , Hospital, in Ogdensburg, where he was entered at 11:30. He died shortly after his arriyel, a'little before noon. An autopsy performed by Dr. Free of Ogdensburg revealed that he hadsuffered ruptured kidney^ and liver* a cerebral- concussion^ fractured ribband, internal hemorrhages. Mr. Yerden was,"the son of Nick Yerden who survives him, and Emma Louise Yerden, who died during the past year. He was born in the- town of Hammond, and lived here all his life. For sixteen years he worked for, George R. Taylor on the Taylor farm | in Pleasant Valley, He ^was a, conscientious worker and invaluable > to his employers. H6 jwas married, in. Dec 1928, to Miss Mary Yerden, dau'gRte of Alex.Yerden. Beside his wife and father he leaves two children, Emma Louise and Leland Jr.
This confuses me because Mary Yerden daughter of Alex (Alexander) Yerden married a ferrell. Was MAry married to her cousin or something? Or are they two different Marys?
