  SEYMOUR P. YOUNG was born in Dec. 11, 1864, in Pleasant township, Madison county, Ohio, and is of German descent.  He is the son of Frederick and Lucinda (Kaufelt) Young, to whom nine children were born, seven of whom are still living.  Seymour P. Young is the youngest child and only son.  His father, Frederick Young, was born in 1812, in Germany, immigrating to America when a young man and locating in Pickaway county, Ohio, where he bought land and farmed, later removing to Madison county, Ohio.  He continued to cultivate the soil until his death, which occurred on Apr. 23, 1866.  His mother, Lucinda (Kaufelt) Young, was born in 1825, in Ohio, and died on Mar. 28, 1889.
     The only son of thrifty German parents, Seymour P. Young possessed but little knowledge of his parents, his father having died when he was but two years of age and he was bereft of a mother when a young man twenty-five years of age.  Reared to farm life and obtaining his education at the old Douglas district school of Pleasant township, Seymour P. Young, at the early age of twenty-one years, began farming for himself.  He purchased the old home place, on which he made extensive improvements.  This property he cultivated most successfully and also engaged in the raising of stock becoming very prosperous.  In 1912 Mr. Seymour removed to Mt. Sterling, Ohio, where he owns a fine home on East Main Street.  He is a stockholder in the First National bank and is the owner of one hundred and forty-two acres of well-improved land.
     At the age of twenty-one years, on Dec. 31, 1885, Seymour P. Young took for his life partner Sereatha Bricker, who was born on Jan. 9, 1864, in Madison county, Ohio, and who was the daughter of James and Lydia (Stone) Bricker, both parents being natives of Ohio.  To this marriage of Seymour P. Young and Sereatha Bricker, two children were born: Frederick, a graduate of the Mt. Sterling schools, who took a commercial course at Athens, Ohio, and is now with the Mt. Sterling Building and Loan Company; and Myrtle L. who is a graduate of the Mt. Sterling schools and resides with the family.
     Politically, a Democrat, a member of the Christian Church and living up to the precepts of the Knights of Pythias, of which he is a member, Seymour P. Young, destitute of a father's care when only a child, yet with his indomitable will and ability, has paved the way to success and prospered, carefully educated his children and now in the prime of manhood he can rest secure with his wife and family, enjoying the just reward of labors well done.
