William Young, who has for several weeks been seriously ill at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Lena Wright, passed away Sunday morning, after a long and tedious illness, having been for several weeks confined to his bed. Mr. Young was a veteran of the Civil War and was interested in all that pertained to the post of which he was a member. He is survived by three children, Mrs. Wright with whom he was at the time of his death, and two sons, Elwin Young, living at Concord, N.H., and Lynn Young, who lives at St. Albans. Funeral services were held at the home Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 and interment was in town. The Rev. R.H. Moore officiated at the services and the Grand Army said the ritual service.
