Following is note from Allan Rauner, Northville, MI, July 27, 2003, RaunerA@aol.com :
There should be a headstone for William Young there also. My cousin (Tom Shepstone) found the headstone and recorded the below transcription. The transciption reads:
" Here lies deposited the remains of William Young who departed this life Febry 22nd 1802, aged 52 years, 11 months and 10 days."
"Readers read as you pass by
So as you me, so once was I
So as I am, so must you be
Prepare for death and follow me."
William is my [A. Rauner's] paternal great, great great great, great grandfather
