Egerton Ryerson Young was born at Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada on April 7, 1840. After his education at the Normal School in Ontario and his ordination as a minister, he entered the ministry. When he was 27 years old, he received a commission to become a missionary to the Canadian Indians, first serving at the Norway House in the Northwest Territories. This launched his ministry, which lasted for many years, to the Canadian Indians whom he served faithfully with his wife, Elizabeth Bingham of Bradford, Ontario and their children.
