In researching my Yarger lines, I have been provided with the obituary of Daniel Yarger of Butler Ohio which identifies W L Yarger of Akron as his child.

Can anyone assist on this? Any and all help appreciated!
Here is the obit of Daniel Yarger; maybe it will help with identification?

Lifeless Body of Daniel Yarger Found by Daughter Near Butler

       When Miss Irene Yarger, who had been away for the afternoon returned to her home three miles southwest of Butler, yesterday afternoon, she found her father, Daniel Yarger, 67, dead in the wagon shed. Pencil and paper were found beside the dead man, indicating that he had tried to write when he was stricken.

       The deceased had been doing some repair work on the farm when a rain came up and he took refuge in the wagon shed. Heart trouble is supposed to have been the cause of death. He was at Butler yesterday morning and appeared to be in usual good health.

       Mr. Yarger was a well-known resident of that part of the county in which he lived. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having enlisted at the age of 15 years. He served two years as a member of Co. E 32nd Ohio.

       The wife of the deceased died several years ago. He is survived by the following children: Mrs. S. L. Taylor and Miss Irene Yarger of near Butler; Mrs. A. Leedy of Fredericktown; Jesse Yarger of Lexington, and W. L. Yarger of Akron. He is also survived by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. J. L. Swank of Butler; Mrs. George Allen of Woodbury, Morrow county; Mrs. George Swank and William and Jesse Yarger of this city.

       Coroner G. W. Miller, after viewing the body and learning of the finding pronounced death due to heart trouble.

       The funeral will be held Thursday at 10 a.m. with burial at the Butler cemetery. S. F. Bell, George Knofflock, David Stambaugh and W. K. Oberlin, all members of Company E, 32nd O. V. I., of which the deceased was a member, will go to Butler tomorrow to attend the funeral and act as pallbearers.
