Daniel Young was the sheriff of Bailysville, Montana in 1873.
Young is chasing local outlaws the Jackson Brothers one day when the spaceship of Green Lantern Corps member Abin Sur screams by overhead. Startled by the sight, Petey Jackson is thrown from his horse, allowing Sheriff Young to apprehend him. While leading Jackson back to the town jail, Young finds Abin Sur's downed ship and investigates. Injured in an earlier battle, Abin Sur needs time to heal, and deputizes Young as his temporary replacement Green Lantern.
Young possesses the ring for only a brief time, long enough to protect local boy Willy Benson from the remaining Jackson Brothers, who intended to swap him for their jailed brother. Upon defeating and capturing the Jacksons, the ring leaves his finger, presumably returning to the now-recovered Abin Sur.
As a short-term deputy Green Lantern, Daniel Young never possessed a Power Battery and never had an opportunity to speak an oath.
