About this time he transferred his membership to the Methodist church and was ordained an Elder in 1906.

    In 1900 he was stationed at Leigh, Nebr., and while he was pastor at this place a new church was erected and dedicated. In 1901 and 1902 he served in Allen, Nebr.

    He was a true and faithful christian. The last time he was in church, or near the last time, he gave a good testimony, saying: "I know th Lord Jesus Christ has power to forgives sins. He saved me 66 years ago and still keeps me".

    Rev. Young had been in failing health for several months and went to be with the Lord Sunday monring at 2 o'clock. We will mess him but our loss is his gain, and we would say to our heavenly Father, "Thy will be done".

    And tho are crowned at last.
