Particular note is Mr. Youngs travel route to get to his property

There passed away on September 14, one on of the pioneer residents of this part in the person of Mr. Robert Young. About three weeks ago Mr. Young went to visit his daughter in Udney, and passed away peacefully after a very short illness. The late Mr. Young was born in the Township of Darlington in the year 1843. He moved with his parents to the Township of Dalton in 1858, when it was a wilderness, as there were no roads at that time through the country. They came by wagon through Brechin to the head of Mud Lake, then by log canoe down nine miles to the mouth of the lake, then three miles down Head River, where they landed and prepared to hew out a home in the forest. Mr. Young will be sadly missed by a large circle of relatives, friends and lonely indeed are the hearts of the bereaved members of his family, who mourn the loss of a kind father. His wife predeceased him some 19 years ago. Left to mourn the loss of a dear father are two sons and three daughters namely George, Toronto, Mrs. Baker, Sebright, Mrs. W.
