 Yealey became interested in local history soon after coming to Boone County. He recalled that in 1898 he photographed a re-enactment of an incident at Hangman'​s Tree. The re-enactment nearly had tragic consequences,​ but was successful, though he lost the scrapbooks containing the photograph and plates in 1919.  Yealey became interested in local history soon after coming to Boone County.
