     The following information is extracted from his obituary.

He died 3 months before his brother, George.11,8,6,12,10 Albert Mathew Yourth was buried on 29 March 1937 in Beechwood Cemetery, Ottawa, Ottawa East of the Rideau, Ontario, Canada.6,12,10,13
Canadian Military Service:
     Albert Yourth began military service on 15 March 1916 at the age of 21 in Pembroke, Alice Twp., Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada, and was assigned to the 42nd Regiment of the 130th Battalion.7
     Albert Mathew Yourth ended his military service on 20 February 1919 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, as medically unfit (not service related) for further military service.

Earlier, he had been absent without leave for 228 days (Apr 14 to Dec 14, 1918) in Canada, and there is a form indicating he was "discharged as a deserter," dated Mar 13, 1917. This may not mean discharged from service, but ready to return to active service.

He claimed that he was "returning from leave of absence on April 13th, 1918 and he had a hemorrhage from lungs when he was at Golden Lake Ontario. He went to his sister's residence and called in Dr. J. P. Maloney from Eganville, who informed him to remain in bed and that he, Dr. Maloney would inform informed (sic) the Military Authorities at Kingston as to his (A. Yourth) condition. Dr. Maloney further informed him to remain at his sisters until he (Dr Maloney) would give him a certificate that he was well enough to report for duty in Kingston. Yourth stated he was arrested at the residence of his sister on December 12th 1918 by the Military Police"

The medical board stated that he was not fit to undergo detention.

He had served in Canada and England.

     The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the Ottawa Journal published in Ottawa, Ontario 30 March 1937:
Many old friends and relatives attended the funeral held on Monday afternoon at the Radmore Stewart Funeral Home, 1323 Wellington street, of Albert Yourth, Great War Veteran, who died after a lengthy illness at a local hospital on Saturday.

Rev. Cecil Roach, of St. Matthias' Church, conducted the service, and interment was in Beechwood Cemetery.

Mr. Yourth, who made his home at 49 Carruthers avenue, was 42 years of age. He had lived in Ottawa for about 15 years. He is survived by his widow, who was formerly Florence St. Martin.10



     The following account of the funeral of Albert Yourth appeared in the Ottawa, Ontario Ottawa Citizen 30 March 1937 :
ALBERT YOURTH.
The funeral of Albert Yourth of 109 Forward avenue, who passed away Saturday at a local hospital, was held Monday afternoon in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends. The service was conducted by Rev. C. H. Roach at Radmore Stewart's Funeral Home, 1323 Wellington street. Burial took place at Beechwood cemetery.

Many floral offerings, testifying to the high esteem in which the late Mr. Yourth was held, were received by the bereaved family.13

     In the obituary of William George Yourth who died 13 July 1937, William's brother, Albert Yourth was listed as a survivor.14

External link for Albert Mathew Yourth on his WeRelate Wiki Person Page.15

Link to the Canadian Great War Project:; Private Albert Yourth15      The following analysis is from my personal research and reflects my attempts to consolidate information from different sources.
His age as recorded on the Beechwood Cemetery Register indicates he would have been born about 2 Mar 1896.

On his marriage registration he gave his age as 27, meaning he claimed to be born about 1900. Perhaps, since he was marrying a 17 year old girl, he may not want to have admitted to being about 32.15

The following biographical information was shared in an email from the late Jean Panke, 28 October 2003:
YOURTH: , husband Frederick Yourth and his wife, Bertha A Schmidt. St. John's United Church Cemetery Golden Lake, Ontario.

Their homestead was near where I lived. I can remember when he passed away, (I was born in 1936). He had one leg off, I think the family thought he would have had diabetes, but not sure if it was diagnosed by a physician. He and his wife had a large family. Their children were very close to my father and his siblings, not only because they lived so close, but because they were double related as Godfrey and Fred were brothers, Bertha and Mary my grandmother were sisters. (Schmidt's) Fred and Bertha were parents just to help you find the info in your data base, of Alvina, Harrison, Alice, Ruby Clara, John, Gertrude etc.

Fred Yourth was the Sunday School Superintenant for many years at Golden Lake Church. I haven't researched, but the first church was suppose to have been located where the cemetery is....before the new one was built and still is my brother's church where he attends right in the Golden Lake Village. I was also married in this church. It use to be St. John's Evangelical United Brethren Church, before it because United Church of Canada, now known as: St. John's United Church. I believe it would have been in the 80's when this came about. Before my mother passed away anyhow if I recall correctly.17

Thrown from a wagon when the horses became frightened and bolted, on the Golden Lake-Killaloe road Monday afternoon, two Golden Lake children were painfully injured, and were brought to Pembroke Cottage hospital for treatment.

Jack Yourth, aged three, received a deep laceration of the right arm; while his five-year-old brother, Douglas, had an extensive injury to the right foot, where he was trampled by one of the horses and a scalp wound. Both are sons of John F. Yourth, Golden Lake farmer, and cook at the Y.M.C.A. Red Pine Camp. The children's uncle, who was driving was also thrown out and received head injuries which did not require hospital attention.

Dr. McDermott, Golden Lake, attended the children and had them brought to Pembroke, where they were placed under the care of Dr. J. H. Joyner. They were able to return home today.18
