Gen. Young Dead.

Distinguished Citizen of Bartow Dies in New York.

Was Sick Only a Few Weeks.

A Brilliant Career Brought to a Close—Buried in Cartersville—Sketch of His Life.

The death of General P. M. B. Young, which occurred in New York at eleven o’clock on Monday was a terrible shock to his friends in Cartersville. He reached New York from Guatemala on June 24 th and went at once to the Presbyterian hospital in that city, as he was not well enough to proceed to Washington.

Relatives in this place were notified of his illness, and Dr. Thos. F. Jones, his brother-in-law, left last Friday for New York, and was with him when he died.

The hospital authorities are rather reticent as to the nature of General Young’s disease and define it as a “medical case.”

His remains will reach Cartersville today and will be interred at Oak Hill cemetery, where his father, mother and brother are buried.
