1889 BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF
SHELBY AND AUDUBON COUNTIES, IOWA
W. S. DUNBAR & CO., PUBLISHERS
113 ADAMS STREET, CHICAGO
EDGAR YOUNG, a native of Will
County, Illinois, has been a resident of
Audubon County since the year 1871.
He was born August 19, 1854, and is a son
of Henry and Charlotte (Mudge) Young,
natives of Ohio and Pennsylvania respect-
ively. He was but six years old when his
parents emigrated to Iowa and settled in
Boone County, where they lived eleven years.
They then removed to Audubon County, and
located on a farm in Greeley Township.
There our subject made his home until 1881.
May 22 of that year he was united in mar-
riage to Miss Clara A. Beers, a daughter of
Bradley and Hannah G. (Eels) Beers. She
was born in Audubon County, Iowa, March
4, 1863. In 1882 Mr. Young removed to
his present farm. He then owned eighty
acres, which was raw prairie land. He has
placed this under cultivation, and has added
eighty-two acres, making 162 acres in all.
He has built a fine frame residence, a barn,
and buildings for the care and protection of
stock and grain. He is a live, energetic man,
and stands in the front ranks of Audubon
County's reliable farmers. When Mr. Young
began life for himself his capital consisted of
pluck and energy. The result of his labor
has been very satisfactory, as will be seen on
taking a look at his farm and its many val-
uable improvements. Politically Mr. Young
is identified with the Republican party. He
has held the office of justice of the peace.
Four children have been born to Mr. and
Mrs. Young - Alvie Judson, Bonnie May,
Arlow Floyd and Bertha Ora.
