Charles H. Young and Wife
Are Gassed at Vancouver,
The body of Private Charles H.
Young of the United States army, son of Mrs. B. C. Young of this
city, arrived in Caldwell Thursday noon from Vancouver, Wash.,
accompanied by Private Martin E. Pilgrim of Vancouver. Young
and his wife were found dead in bed at their residence at 124 West
16th St. in Vancouver, Monday. Their deaths were caused by gas
from a defective gas meter.
Young completed a four-year term in the army last year
and re-enlisted April 1, 1932. During his furlough last June,
he visited in Caldwell. The couple had been married less than
Mrs. Young, who is survived by a mother and sister in
Oregon, will be buried in Vancouver.
Besides his mother, Young is survived by a sister, Mrs.
A. C. Newton of Caldwell. Funeral services were incomplete
Thursday afternoon. It is probable that a military funeral
will be held.
The body is at the Peckham funeral chapel.
