Young - Alfred Dudley

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal, 20 February 1892

Mrs. J. W. Howard received the sad news last week of the death of her uncle, Dudley Young, of Ladoga. He has been in poor health for some time. Thinking it might be beneficial to his health he took a trip to Tennessee a few months ago, where his death occurred. They started the morning of the 12th with the corpse to Ladoga, at which place the burial will take place.
