DEACON MAPLE DAN YEISER: The subject of this sketch was born near
Red Hill, Daviess County, Kentucky, on March 2, 1869, and is the son
of Elder Daniel E. and Helen Newton Yeiser. He is the youngest child
among five boys and one girl. He was reared on his father's farm and
has continued to make that his home to the present time, following
the occupation of farming.
Our brother attended the common schools near his home and for a
short time was a student in the West Kentucky College, South
Carrollton, Kentucky.
As he was surrounded by a Christian atmosphere in the home, his
father being a devoted minister of the Gospel, we find him making a
profession of faith at the Red Hill School House at the age of
fourteen under his father's preaching. He was baptized by his father
into the fellowship of the Sugar Grove Baptist Church. He held his
membership with this Church until the year 1893 when he became a
charter member of the Red Hill Baptist Church. He is one of the few
charter members of the Church still living. He was elected as the
first clerk of the Church serving in the years 1893 to 1904 and again
from 1906 to 1911. He has been a deacon of the Church since the year
1902 and has served as the Moderator for some time. For the past
fifty years he has missed but few of the meetings of the Association
often serving as a messenger from his Church.
He has also represented his Church on the Executive Mission
Board.
Brother Yeiser was united in marriage to Miss Cora Nall on
January 24, 1894. Six children, four boys and two girls, blessed this
union. It is a blessing and benediction to one to have the
acquaintance and friendship of this humble and good man. He is a
worthy son of a worthy father who served the Churches of this
Association for over fifty years. We thank God for this faithful
father and this faithful son.
Brother Yeiser's preacher father lived with him until his death
and is buried in the old cemetery on the home place. He lived to the
advanced age of ninety-five years and six months. During the last
few years of his life he was unable to carry on in the work of the
Lord but gently awaited the summons from on high.
