    • John Young was killed in action during the Civil War in the Battle of Allatoona Pass, which took place on October 5, 1864. It is possible he was taken to a hospital in Marietta.

      "1602 men were part of the 4th MN VI throughout the war. There were a number of Draftees into the Regiment in the Spring and again in Aug of 64, arriving in time for their baptism of fire to be Allatoona. I've read of a Captain taking a detail of men from Huntsville to find some "lost souls who were due to the Regiment." At least one of the men, John Young of A Co, killed at Allatoona died after his service was up. He could have ridden the Hospital train out of the garrison that left the eve before but refused so he could stay with his friends. His devotion to his comrades cost him his life."
