Walter V. Yount, about forty-three years old, a resident of New Market for many years and a man known throughout the county, died at a sanitarium in Indianapolis this morning after a prolonged illness. The body will be taken to New Market, where funeral services will be arranged later. Mr. Yount had been in the sanitarium for several months, suffering with a nervous trouble. His condition has been serious for several days. The deceased was a son of William P. Yount, a pioneer of the county, who died at his home in this city seven weeks ago. The elder Mr. Yount was one of the most widely known men in the county. The man whose death occurred today had owned a drug store in New Market during the last few years, purchasing the store of Henry Servies, when the latter came here to take up his duties as county recorder. Previous to that time Mr. Yount had held a position in the New Market bank. While he has been ill his sons have been conducting the drug store. While young Mr. Yount was married to a Ripley township girl, a daughter of Frank Swearingen, a well known farmer. The widow, four sons and two daughters survive. Mr. Yount is also survived by two brothers, Rev. Andrew Yount, of Cincinnati, and Lozier Yount, of Olney, Ill., and two sisters, Mrs. Clara Stubbins, and Mrs. Harry Lebo.
