Edward Green Young was born in Warren County, Kentucky, on December 29, 1857, to James and Louisa Young. A lifelong farmer in Richardsville and Rich Pond, Kentucky, Young grew mainly tobacco and fruit. Following his retirement from farming, he moved to Bowling Green and worked as a tobacco buyer for J. W. Goodrum. He married Sarah Jane Runner in 1881; they had twelve children together, including Nora Young Ferguson. Starting in 1915, Young served two terms as a Kentucky state representative from Warren County and chaired the County and City Courts Committee and the Enrollment Committee. Additionally, he served as a trustee of the R.W. Ogden estate, which created Ogden College in Bowling Green in the late 1800's. He died on October 31, 1948.
