Adjutant Campbell Harris Young


Campbell Harris Young (XX 218) was admitted to practice at the bar in 1859. On the outbreak of the Civil war he enlisted in the One Hundred and Thirty-sixth regiment, New York state volunteers, and when this regiment came under the command of his uncle, James Wood, he was appointed its adjutant. He served throughout the war, rising to the rank of major. He was appointed judge advocate-general of the state by Governor Reuben Fenton January 1, 1867, and later was, for several years, deputy clerk of the state Court of Appeals.

In 1875 he returned from New York city, where he had lived for some years, to Geneseo, and became there a partner in the law practice of his uncle, General Wood.
