CIVIL WAR

Edward Russell Young, a Wall Street broker, died Monday at the homestead of his family, in Smithtown, L. I. He had been ill for a long time. Mr. Young was in his sixty-third year. Before the war and since he took a great interest in military affairs. As a member of Company B, Seventh Regiment, he was one of those to answer the first call of the Government for troops on the breaking out of the civil war.

Mr. Young returned shortly afterward from Washington, and, with Gen. J.V. Meserole and others, organized the Forty-seventh Regiment in Brooklyn. After the war he became Major of the Forty-seventh Regiment. For many years he lived in Newark, N. J. Until recently he was associated with Martin & Runyon, brokers, at 100 Broadway. He leaves a wife and two sons. The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock this afternoon from the house of his brother, Charles S. Young, 399 Hancock Street, Brooklyn. The burial will be in Greenwood Cemetery.
