The North Adams Transcript is the local paper. If you search on Alexander Young within this newspaper the first article that come up is one on his lost identification paperwork for pension filing. With all the names you have been working on the article lends a little humor. Mary's Obit is also available on 1927 as well as a birthday celebration given by her children.
Alexandar's Obit does not appear to be available. I would be willing to look up on microfilm the next time I'm up there, however don't know when that will be (next month probably).
There also appears to be more than one Alexander Young in the area so you will have to sort that out somehow.
