Cook Evans Schnable Young

Obituary of Preston J. Young, Batesville, Arkansas.

Preston J. Young was a Confederate soldier at the age of seventeen in Company C, Capt. J. F. Evans, Col. John A. Schnable regiment, Missouri Cavalry, Jackman's Brigade, Shelby's Division, Price's army, and participated with distinguished and characteristic gallantry in all the battles and campaigns of that famous command.

He surrendered with his command at Jacksonport, Ark., May 25, 1865.

He knew the principles for which the South fought and cherished to the end the memory of the heroic efforts of the Confederate soldier.

He was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, for many years, and, having lived an exemplary life, we not only hope but feel sure that his was a triumphant entrance into the presence of his Saviour.

Born in Ripley County, Mo., March 12, 1847, and died at Batesville, Ark., January 16, 1920.

[V. Y. Cook, Batesville, Ark.]
