Name of Deceased: John Henry Young

Submitters Name: Thomas Dewlen
Obit: Death of John H. Young
This gentleman was very generally and favorably known throughout the county.  The news of his death, which happened at 11 o'clock on last Sunday, comes very unexpected.  He had been sick with the fever but a day or two before his death when he was suddenly taken with a congestion of the stomach.  This terminated fatally, as above stated.  Mr. Young came to this country from Illinois immediately after the war and has resided here ever since.  He was universally esteemed by his neighbors, and his loss will be severely felt by the community as well as by his relatives.  We proffer our sympathies to the mourning friends.

He was the son of John and Jane Grinter Young, born in Logan County, Kentucky.  He was married three times.

Obit: Young, Sallie
Died: in Crescent Hill Friday, May 25th, Mrs. Sallie Young, aged 62 years 1 months and 25 days.
Aunt Sallie, as she was best known was born in Park county, Indiana, March 30, 1832; moved to Bates county, Mo., in 1857; was married to John H. Young Dec. 18, 1867; her companion dying several years ago and her children have all gone before.  She now has gone to meet them on the ever green shore. She was ready and willing to die, her last words were: "Oh if sister Cynthia could die first, then all would be well with me."  Aunt Sallie was a Christian woman, always ready to do her Master's will.  On her last birthday her many friends gathered at her welcome home with well filled  baskets, and enjoyed the day with her. Aunt Sallie loved the church was always willing to do any thing in her power for her God.  She bore her sufferings well, but now she has gone; her voice will not be heard anymore; all that we can do is to prepare to meet her on the other shore.  Rev. O. L.  Wilson, her pastor preached her funeral at 4 o'clock Saturday to many of her friends, after which her remains were laid to rest beside her loved ones.  She leaves three brothers to follow her, H. C. Mills, of Foster, John Mills, of Butler, and Wm. Mills of Adrian and a sister Cynthia Walters.  Mourn not dear ones it won't be long until you will meet her in a world that will never end. -- The Adrian Journal, June 1 1894, Page 4 column 3, Death
