Rev. John W. Young
DIED. Rev. John W. Young, one of the fathers in the Ohio Conference, died Dec. 7, 1879, near Gallipolis, O. He was born July 6, 1802, near Baltimore City, Md. In 1814 the family removed to Meigs co., O. A thirst for mental culture, in his 16th year he went to Charleston, W. Va., where he found better helps for gaining knowledge. When 18 he embraced religion and joined the Church. Because of the interest he manifested in the Church, as well as his own spiritual culture, he was soon called into official relation to the Church. In 1829 he was married to Miss Mary G. Shepard, the daughter of Methodist parents. This union was happily protracted a few days over fifty years. The first year of his married life was spent in Portsmouth, O., and he was here given license to exhort by Rev. I. C. Hunter. The following year he returned to Charleston , W. Va. The conviction that it was his duty to preach had been present with him for several years. At last the pressure was such that he was induced to yield, and at the session of the Ohio Conference, held in Springfield in 1835, he was received on trial. * * * * * * Brother Young's Christian life was a success. He succeeded in rearing and educating a Christian familhy. They revere his memory, and will illustrate the religion of their father. * * * * * * He had fondly hoped to be privileged to greet his conference associates at the session of 1879 in Gallipolis; but in this he was disappointed; his asthmatic troubles prevented him leaving his room. He evinced during the last days of his earthly pilgrimage the resignation of a child of God. Without a struggle or a sigh, when the time of his departure arrived, he passed to the home provided for him. J. M. TRIMBLE (extracted)
