Young, Jacob C. (14 JUN 1819 - 31 MAY 1899)

Died, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. M.A. Young in this city (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.), on Wednesday morning, May 31st, 1899, of old age and general debility, Jacob C. Young, age 79 years, 11 months and 16 days.

Mr. Young was born June 14th, 1819, at Clay, Onandago Co., N.Y., and was there united in marriage with Miss Catherine Liddle about the year 1847. Five children blessed this union, of whom three are yet living, J.M. Young of Barton, Mrs. Emaline Wicker of the town of Hull, and Mrs. M.A. Young of this city.

Mr. Young moved with his family to Wisconsin, and settled in the town of Trenton, Washington Co., in June 1856, where he made his home until the death of his wife, which occurred March 21st, 1898, and since that has spent the most of his time with his daughter in this city, although he has made one or two short visits back to his old home.

He united with Kishkaupee Lodge, I.O.O.F., in 1858, has lived as a consistent Odd Fellow since that time, and at the time of his death was the senior past grand of his lodge.

The remains were taken to Washington Co. this morning on the 8:25 train, where they will be laid by the side of his late wife, and were escorted to the depot by a delegation of Colby Lodge, the bearers being all Past Grands, and will be met at the other end of the route by a delegation from his own lodge.

Since his residence here, owing to his advanced age, he has mingled but little with the people outside of his own family relations, but those who have made his acquaintance speak of him as a very genial and companionable old gentleman.
