Shelby County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 27, 1862

Tennessee, USA

Some records indicate that James' middle initial was "G" and not "C." But the preponderance of evidence, including all of James' military records, refer to him as James "C." The inscribed initial seen on the tombstone is "open to interpretation." In any event, James was the eldest son of William & Louisa (Kingery) Young. Father William was a licensed "local minister" who was known to have preached at the Wesley Chapel M. E. Church that once stood at the cemetery site. According to one biography of the Youngs: "Wesley Chapel is near his (William's) home, which he paid about half the cost of building, and he takes care of it." James appears on the 1850 Federal Census living with his parents and three siblings in Franklin Township, Shelby County, OH. James also appears on the 1860 Federal Census living with his widowed father and four siblings - again in Franklin Township. On August 11, 1862, at the age of 19, James enlisted in the 99th Ohio Volunteer Infantry and was assigned to Company K. Four months later on November 27, 1862, James died of disease at General Hospital No. 7, Nashville, TN. He had just turned 20 years of age. The Ohio Roster of Civil War Combatants notes that James was buried at Nashville. If that is the case, then James' remains were subsequently sent home and re-interred at Wesley Cemetery.
