Laura Young

Mrs. Laura C. YOUNG, wife of W. L. Young, died at the family home 
at 314 North Washington street at noon today of consumption, after an 
illness extending over a period of several months. 

Deceased was born in Harrison county, Ind., April 5, 1850. She removed 
to this state when a young woman and settled in Farrington township in this 
county, where she married W. L. Young October 20, 1870. She had been 
a member of the M. E. church since she was 14 years old and was a conscientious 
Christian woman, highly respected by all who knew her. She was the mother of 
seven children, of which John, Cora, Dollie and Winnie are the survivors. Two 
children died in infancy and Emory, an older son, was killed by the fall of a 
horse when about 16 years of age. Mr. and Mrs. Young removed to Mt. Vernon about 
three years ago, the latter being an invalid the greater part of the time since 
that occurance. 

The funeral services will be held at the M. E. church, of which congregation deceased 
was a member, at 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. The interment will be at Oakwood.
