From the Boone County Recorder, "Judge L.L Youell died at the residence of his son in Walton last Friday, after several weeks illness, which seemed to be the breaking up of the physical man, superinduced by old age and bodily infirmity of long standing. Judge Youell was the first Judge of the Boone County Court under the present consitution, an office which he filled to the satisfaction of the public and honor to himself. He had been in a feeble condition for several years, having never recovered from a paralytic stroke recieved long since; and had it not been for his indominable energy he would have given up labor long since, but so long as he was able to be about he applied himself assiduously to his law practice, and not for some time after his physical condition was on the verge of complete exhaustion did he surrender, and in a few weeks thereafter he was summoned to appear before that bar that knows no laws as frail as those in this small, sinful forld. Requiescat in pace."
