She had retired Sunday evening in her usual health and talked to her sister yesterday morning only a few minutes before her death. She had not yet a risen and Mrs. Arter had gone to her room, talking to her for several moments and left the room expecting to return within a few minutes. Mrs. Young had not spoken of feeling ill, but when her sister returned to her room she was dead. Death was due to heart trouble, superinduced by indigestion.

Deceased was bon in Lisbon, June 20, 1842, a daughter of William A. and Ann Hoover, former well known residents of this city. In October, 1867, she was united in marriage with Peter B. Y oung, and they lived in the Young homestead on East Washington street until the death of Mr. Young. Mrs. Young united with the Methodist-Episcopal church in 1859, and has ever since been one of the foremost members and most prominent workers in the church. She is survived by but one sister, Mrs. Arter. Funeral services have not yet been arranged.
