Well Known Citizen Died In Sleep at Home of Friend – Services and Interment at Stamp Creek Sunday

Mr. James Harland Young, 63, well-known citizen of the Pine Log District, was found dead at the home of Mr. W.M. Edmondson, shortly after noon Friday.  Mr. Edmondson immediately called Sheriff George Gaddis’ office and Deputy S.G. Sexton, accompanied by Coroner G.W. Hendricks rushed to the scene of the death.

A jury composed of the following gentlemen brought in a verdict of death from natural causes: A.R. Yancey, Tom Branton, S.G. Sexton, Rufus Moss, Joe Alexander and L.F. Richards, foreman.

Evidence brought out at the inquest showed that Mr. Young had spent Thursday afternoon, Thursday night and Friday morning at the Edmondson home.  He had been in a delirious condition during the night, but Friday morning seemed to have improved, and had drifted off to sleep.  Going to the room at one o’clock, Mr. Edmondson found that Mr. Young had succumbed.

Funeral services were held Sunday from Stamp Creek church, with the Rev. H.P. Sheffield of White officiating.  Interment was in the churchyard cemetery with John W. Jones funeral director in charge.  The pallbearers were: Messrs. Hubert Boston, Tol Branton, Watt Edmondson, Leonard Shinall, Rufus Moss and Joe Alexander.

In addition to his widow, the deceased in survived by four sons and one daughter, they are: Messrs. John Willie Young of Leesburg, Florida, Charles, Ed and Lee of White, Georgia, and Mrs. Josephine Coggins of Oakman, Georgia.  The bereaved family has the sympathy of their friends in their sorrow.
