Edward R. Young. The incumbent of one or another official position at Duncan since 1901, Edward R. Young, present sheriff of Stephens County, has established a clean and honorable record for public service as a courageous, faithful and entirely efficient officer. During a long and somewhat diversified career, his activities have led him to invade various and varied occupations, and in each community in which he has resided he has held and merited his fellow-citizens' respect.
Sheriff Young was born in Coosa County, Alabama, February 15, 1867, and is a son of Harrison B. and Antoinette (Gililand) Young. The Youngs came from England to America prior to the Revolution, settling in Alabama, where the grandfather of Sheriff Young, Bird H. Young, was roared among the Cherokee Indians. He served faithfully as a soldier during the War of 1812, and subsequently was extensively engaged in farming and in the breeding of horses and the raising of gamecocks, and died in Coosa County, Alabama, at the age of eighty-one years, when Sheriff Young was still a small child. Harrison B. Young, the father of Edward R. Young, was born at Cherokee Bluff, Tallapoosa County, Alabama, in 1827, and as a young man removed to Coosa County, where he was married. In 1876 he returned to his native county, where during the remaining years of his life he was engaged in farming and raising stock, and there his death occurred in 1904. Throughout his life he was actively interested in Masonic work, being a Mason for fifty-two years, past master of his lodge and a member of the higher branches of Masonry, and was a popular figure on the lecture platform. Throughout his life he belonged to the Baptist Church, in which he served as deacon and clerk for many years. With six of his brothers he enlisted for service during the war between the North and the South under the flag of the Confederacy, and served four years, first as a member of the Fourteenth Regiment, Alabama Volunteer Infantry, and subsequently as a member of the famous cavalry under Gen. Joe Wheeler.
