W. B. Young passed away Saturday after a short illness of only a few days confinement to his bed. He was court clerk for McIntosh county, (more than 10 yrs) and one of the most efficient and popular men in the county.
Even while he was under the weather for several weeks, during which time he was unable to be at his job at the court house, he was able to be up and around home, and was not considered dangerous until a couple of days before his death. He suffered a choking spell which interfered with his breathing; thought to have been asthma, and passed away late Saturday afternoon.
Mr. Young was born in Tunnel Hill, GA, Aug. 31, 1867. He was 53 years old at the time of his death.
Funeral services were held at the Methodist church, Monday afternoon by the Rev. Moore. His remains were laid to rest in the city (Greenwood) cemetery.
Besides his wife, he leaves a son and a daughter, Thomas and Marion Young, to mourn his loss.
