The updating of the numbering system used on this page has been completed. Generation 28 is my own;
27 is that of my parents; 29 is that of my children, etc.  --   John M. Gwin, May 2009


The reformatting of the name font and census data for this page has NOT been completed. --John M. Gwin, Aug 2011


For Courtney, Jeremy, Charity, Lauren, and Sarah

PLEASE NOTE: Clearly much work went into the original researching of this data, and for that I am very grateful! My former sister-in-law, Vonda Kay Sigmon [Mitchell] Gwin, told me that her brother, Robert Sigmon (RESigmon@fuse.net), did some of the original research, and it was she who gave my mother, Dorothy Lee Keeney Gwin, a copy of his book. When mother died in 2005, I inherited this copy.

The book's first page does indeed list as co-authors "Kenneth Cavender, who 'dug up' most of the enclosed names and dates" and "Robert Sigmon, who dug up some names and performed all manual chores," and also states, "Made for Vonda Mitchell, January 1977, so she would know her roots--Love, Bob Sigmon".

When I decided to transcribe Bob's material to this page, however, I saw that the format of the original only used varying degrees of indentation to distinguish generations; no numbers or other characters were used. To facilitate reading, then, I have here attempted to continue using those indentations but adding numbers as well, the pre-decimal number indicating the generation, the post-decimal number indicating the birth order within the family.

In at least one place, I was not able to read the indentations correctly, those indentations seeming to vary from one page to another, making it nearly impossible to interpret to which generation a given entry might belong. I attempted but failed to contact Vonda's brother to correct my error(s). For years, then, I caused those parts in question to flash on and off as a caution to the reader.  However, on 5 Mar 2009 I received an email from Cousin Jackie Sue Young who shared the lot of data listed below in this green; it helped to clarify those indentation problems in the area of that flashing information, especially since it highlighted for me and seemed to confirm a comment received earlier from Cousin Olive Basham that there were NINETEEN children of Harvey Hudson Hamilton Young and Olive Mae Buckley.

Other contributors include Cousins Mae Van Dinter Norma Smith Frank, Vicki Hess, Beckie (last name unk.), Mary (last name unk.), Beverly Goding, Eileen Dahmen, and John Robert Corey, as listed below.

Cousin Tom Young contacted me in Jun 2007 and has contributed more material, also listed below. His own excellent page is online at: http://www.tomyoung.us/html/ancestors.html.

Cousin Barbara Emerson Sharp checked in in June 2009, joining Jackie Sue Young as a descendant of 22.00--Conrad Young. Her contributions are found in the gold box below as expanded by my additions of pertinent census data. Click here for an interesting relationship chart for Barbara and Jackie Sue Young!

In addition, I own and have read and highly recommend to all a very readable, most enjoyable, and very well documented 94-page book, John Young: Lieutenant at Elk by Orton Jones, Mountain State Press, Charleston, WV, 1994 (ISBN: 0-941092-31-3).

Some of the entries in red below are to indicate the above-named contributors.

In early 2009, I decided to add twenty to the numbers of the generations. For example, my own generation, number 8, became 28. I hope that in so doing I have allowed for the future expansion of the genealogy and not confused the readers.

Subject: The Jung Family of Elk River WV

Conrad Jung
was born in Pennsylvania to newly arrived Mathias Jung and his wife Anna Margaretta Fey 1732.  Mathias was one of the founding fathers of Lancaster PA, and he died young at the age of 38 in the year 1749.  Conrad was the oldest of several children and he was married to Anna Margaretta Franciscus in the year 1755.  They had one son named John, later to be known as Capt John Young of Elk River near Charleston WV.  Conrad's wife Anna Margaretta was struck and killed by lightning when John was 4.  Conrad left Pennsylvania for the Shenandoah Valley with his son.  Conrad married again and that wife was drowned in either the flooded Shenandoah or Potomac River.  They had 4 children in addition to John.  The family then went to Nicholas Co., VA, and Conrad married again to Elizabeth Wood.  They had 2 sons William, b. 1785 and
my own ancestor, George E. Young, b. 1788. William married May Lilly and George married Eudoshia Huddleston of Quaker background.  Two books of these families are John Young, Lieutenant at Elk and every Roane (Rhone Germany yes?) Co. book you can find.  The towns to visit are Clendenin, WV, and Elkview, WV, and each have very good family history centers. The websites cannot keep up with all the histories you'll find by searching elsewhere. William Young's death is documented in WV that he died on Elk Two Mile, and his parents were Conrad and Elizabeth Young. He was the last of their children to die and died in Kanawha Co., WV. His brother, George, died about 1857.  This was Indian Country and some were Indian fighters, especially, Conrad and his two oldest sons, John and Charles. A fascinating history. Many old gravesites are along the Elk River through Kanawha and Roane Counties. The Moravian church at Lancaster, PA, has some history on Conrad and his family from Germany in the early 1700's.

Subject: From Brett Young re: Genealogy


Hi,  I hope this E-mail address is still working for you.
 
I'm writing only to give you an alternative on Conrad Young and his wives. First of all, I'm a descendant of Conrad Young. From me, through my father and up to them it went like this:
 
Brett Alan Young, Donly S. Young Jr., Donly S. Young, Philip Sheridan Young, Samuel Early Young, Jacob Young, John Young, Conrad Young, Matheus Jung.
 
If you're still working on this genealogy, here's an alternative for you. Conrad Young had three wives. The first was Anna Margaret Franciscus. They had two sons prior to John Young. Both died at birth. One was named Johannes Jung and the the other Johan Jung. Then they had John Young in August 1760. John was actually named Johannes. In July of 1764 Anna was rocking John when lightening came down the chimney and killed Anna, but leaving John alone.
 
Conrad's second wife was Margaret Hayes. She died crossing a river. The story I found, said that Conrad was riding his horse with a baby in his arms when Margaret fell from her horse into the river. Conrad rode back to the river bank, put the baby down and went to try to save his wife, but she had already died.
 
I believe (but have no documentation) that the baby was Mathias Young. The baby was the son of Conrad and Margaret Hayes.
 
The third wife was Elizabeth Woods. Their first child was Elizabeth Young who later married Thomas Smythe in Botetourt Co. It's hard to pin down her birthdate because the calendar was changed when she was born but I believe it to be 1770 or 1772.
 
There was a man that I met named Henry Young. He'd done a lot of research over the years. He lived in Clendenin, WV. He had Margaret and Anna Margaretta switched as Conrad's wives. He was a treasure trough of information for me back in the early 90's. Unfortunately, he died a few years after we met and I could no longer pick his brain about the family.
 
My dad got in touch with the Moravian Church in Pennsylvania and that's where we got a tremendous amount of information, including the information above. I cannot state that my information is more accurate than yours, but wanted to open up another scenario for you based on my, my dad's and the Moravian Church's research.
 
Thank you for your time and I hope that some of this opens another door of possibilities for you.     Brett A. Young

John Gwin Note:

 "Before you embark on your research, though, I invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy this book. It is not a dry research tome, but a celebration. I hope you like it."

I liked it very much, Lt. Col. Jones--thanks for sharing all the fun with us!  :-)]

[John M. Gwin Note: The nineteen reported children of Harvey H. H. and Olive Mae (Buckley) Young have come to us in three separate reports: one from the research of Cousin Bob Sigmon, one from the memory of Jackie Sue Young, and one from the 1920 and 1930 census documents (summarized above). The following chart is an attempt to list the three side by side to get a clearer picture of this family.]

My Aunt Cora Young Jones was the eldest of Harvey and Olive Mae's children.  She was married to Simon Jones.  Their children were:
Marvin Lee; Ralph; Janette; Samona; Francis; Mary; Shirlely; Sue; Richard.  I may have left someone out, but some of us knew each other as children and some of the others were older than I.

OK, in the 12 Jan 1920 census of Cabin Creek Dist., Kanawha Co., WV, (see summary above) the family members are listed as follows:

Harvey.....................36....head
Olive........................27....wife
Cara........10....(Cora, firstborn.)
Nanna......8...(This is Nancy, 2nd-born)
Harvey.....6...(Harvey, 3rd-born)
Mira..........4...(Maury, 4th-born)
Jasper......2...(Jasper, 5th-born)
Ruth.........1...(Ruth, 6th-born)

In the 14 Apr 1930 census of this same district, they appear like this:

Harvey H..............47...
Olive M................37...
Nancy J.........18...#2
Harvey S.......16...#3
Maury W......15...#4
Jasper H.......12...#5
Ruth A.
..........11...#6
Clarance A.....9...#7
Doras L...........6...#8
Oliver M.
........4...#9
Lola J.
.............2...#10
Hoy M.
............1...#11



It is very clear that all these records are talking of the same family. As we compare Bob's and Jackie's accounts side by side, each gives clarification of the ambiguities of the other.

For example, Bob Sigmond does not reveal the last names of the children, leaving it to the reader to figure out from the parents' last names, etc.

I had thus assumed that Ralph Dale's last name was Lanham, him being the second child of Sandra Kay and Franklin Lanham. But seeing Jackie Sue Young's list of the children of Cora and Simon Jones beside Bob's list suddenly made me realize that Ralph, Janey, Margaret, Richard, Mary, and Eloise were Joneses, not Lanhams, and belonged in generation 28, not 30!

Ralph and Ralph must be the same person, and Bob's list tells us his middle name, Dale.
Janet Mae and Janette must be the same person.
Richard Amon and Richard must be the same person.
Eloise Sue and Sue must be the same person.
And Mary Elizabeth and Mary must be the same.

That leaves us with Bob's Margaret Ann and Jackie's Samona and Francis unaccounted for.

Perhaps looking for this family in the census records will throw additional light onto the mystery.

From Bob's and Jackie's reports, we had no idea as to the correct birth order of generation 27 with the exceptions of Cora and Zada who are first and last, respectively.

So we looked up the Harvey H. Young family in the census records for 1920 and 1930 and got a fairly decent picture of the birth order through  son Hoy, the eleventh born.

But for the 12th-born through the 18th-born children, there is no clue so far; therefore, I have arbitrarily assigned each of the remaining seven children to one of those as shown below.

Comments: You've done great on the family tree of the Youngs. I am the daughter of Oliver Milton Young and Dora Janet Craigo. My father is 1 of 19 children of Harvey Hudson Hamilton Young and Olive Mae Buckley. I noticed you have a few blanks and inconsistencies concerning my entire family. I'll be glad to help any way I can. We're still working on our family tree, but your information has been vital, useful and GREATLY APPRECIATED.
Olive, thanks for your encouraging comments! I just need to reiterate that this is primarily my collection of the reports of others, of which yours is one; I have done little or no personal research here.]

This daughter is unnamed in both Bob's and Jackie's lists. But she does appear in the 1930 census, so this leaves two possibilities: (1) perhaps she died early, or (2) perhaps this is our June, currently listed as the 14th born. We should know more when the 1940 census is opened in 2010.

Hi John...happened upon this site and was impressed with all your research. However, Jackie Young was so wrong in giving family history for my grandparents, Harvey and Olive Young. My mother is still alive, and she knows her sisters and brothers. She knows their children..my cousins. So, contact me if you would like a true account of the children, and grandchildren. Other than Uncle Jack (Jasper), we are a close family, and Lola is Aunt June. So you can contact me via email or telephone.  My mom is Patricia Young Rogers.
In God's love, Deborah Rogers-Roderick

JMGwin NOTE:
In March 2009, Cousin Jackie Sue Young emailed me with even more data that has helped unravel--at least in my mind--all of this heretofore semi-confusing information on the now-understood-to-be NINETEEN children of Harvey and Olive Mae Young. Using Jackie's data, I have reorganized Bob Sigmon's report on this family and arranged it as I now believe he intended it to be understood. With the exceptions of Jackie's notes that Cora Young Jones was the oldest and Zada Young Fernatt was the youngest of the 19, the birth order was still unclear, however, until I found this family in both the 1920 and 1930 censuses, which gave us the birth order through the eleventh-born child. I arbitrarily selected the birth order numbers for the 12th through 18th children only for the temporary purpose of facility in reference. I have attempted to put Jackie's somewhat extensive (and most welcome!) information into my outline format in the chart above.  Her good email follows.]

Sherry,
 
I have some information on Charles "Conrad" Young's father William Young. I went to a genealogical fair last fall. They had a book on Conrad Young. I also have birth, marriage, and death dates for him.
 
Birth: 17 May 1785
Marriage: 24 June 1806
Death: 15 Aug. 1857, Elk Two Mile, Kanawha Co. Va
 
For his wife, Mary Lilley, I do have a birth date: 1 May 1782 in Frederick Co, VA
 
Book on Conrad Young. ( May 10, 2002 WV Genealogical Fair).  Mentions William as John Young's brother and as a Captain.  William recruited John to be a spy.  John and his mother were captured by the Indians but later returned unharmed.

[John M. Gwin Note: In September 1999 my 2nd cousin, 28.02--John R. Corey (grandson of 26.03--Mabel Stanley, below), wrote:

Cousin John, George Stanley says ISAAC STANLEY is George Washington Stanley's father; he didn't know the grandmother or any more on that side; Charles Conrad Young is bd. at the bottom of the Hendrick Cem. next to Uncle George below Hawk's Nest, WV; he died in 1905 at age 98; Margaret James, his wife, is supposedly bd. in Oak Hill since her family didn't approve of Conrad; I haven't located her grave; keep in touch!     John Robert

--And since then, we sure enough have determined that not only was Isaac his father, but Harris, Pleasant, Thomas, and Thomas were the next four ancestors up the line!  Click his STANLEY link to see what we've learned about this family so far.]

[John M. Gwin NOTE:  Cousin Dan has GWS married twice as follows:   m1. 26 Dec 1865 to Margaret J. Estep; m2. after 1865 to Fanny Young.  From his obituary and oral history of their grandchildren, I know that GWS and Fannie Young were married 58 years, so if he were married twice, then he and MJE would've not been married very long.  I had never heard of the first wife until May 2002, but just after I read Dan's note, I asked my mother, the late Dot Gwin (27.03 below), if Grandpa Stanley had been married before he married Grandma Stanley, and she said yes, she'd heard that her life, but she couldn't remember the first wife's name; according to his obituary that Terry sent me, GW and Fanny had 17 grandkids when he died in 1927; Mamie and Mack had 7, and since Maude and George had none, Harry and Mabel must've had ten between them; indeed, Mother (Dot Gwin) told me Mabel had six children and Harry had four.]

Hi, I am writing to correct the information that John Corey gave you for the descendants of Mabel Stanley. My father, Thomas A. Grafton, III, was her son. He passed away on April 24, 2004. I am his daughter. All of my brothers and sisters are alive. They are [listed above], in order of oldest to youngest.  Don't know if there is any other information you need regarding our branch of the family, but this will make your existing records correct. If you need anything else, like middle names, or marriages, let me know. I found your information very interesting. Take care, Merry Jo

Subject: Uriah Young

Hello!!  I may have another line to add to your family tree!  My great-grandfather was Uriah Young from Kanawha Co., WV.  I have him in the 1850 Federal Census living with George Young and new wife Elizabeth Hayes.  Appearantly Eudoshi Huddleston Young died and George remarried in 1836.  Anyway, Uriah married Martha Jane Hannah who lived in there, too.  They married in 1888, 1890 if you look it up on the West virginia marriage data base.  Uriah and Martha Jane had 7 children in West Virginia:

M. M. Pomeroy b. 30 May 1891 d. 197? South Norfolk, Virginia.  He never married
Ben Burton b. 1892 d. 197? South Norfolk, Virginia.  Married Blanche ?
Ida Belle b. 1894
James Extra b. 24 December 1895 d. 1985 South Norfolk, Virginia.  Married Thelma McPherson and had 12 children (I have all info if you're interested)
Daniel Weston b. 07 October 1897 and was rumored by family tales to have moved to Texas, but I haven't tracked him down.
Ina Jewel b. 23 December 1899 d.22 May 1988 Elizabeth City, NC She married David McPherson, (James Young married Thelma McPherson and Ina Young married her brother David McPherson)
Ivie M b. 17 October 1903 Married John Wallace and lived in South Norfolk/Chesapeake Virginia
I have more information on this family line.  James was my Grandfather.  His 12 children had many children, too!
Uriah died around 1904/5 and Martha remarried and had 2 more children.  Let me know if you want more!

[Mae Van Dinter Note:
My lineage is:  b. 1788: George E. Young and Eudoshia Huddleston. Their son b 1818, Daniel, married Catherine Hayes. Their son, George W. Young b. 1838, m. Mary Hayes. Their daughter, Elizabeth Catherine Young, b. ca. 1870, d. 1917; m. Charles Kennedy. Their son was my father, Clyde Hansford Kennedy, born 1900, d. 1984.

These were from Clendenin area on Elk River.  I was born in 1933 at my maternal grandfather's farm on Morris Fork of Blue Creek.  So, I believe I am sixth generation from Conrad Jung/Young.]

[John M. Gwin Note: I just noticed something interesting about Mae's contribution. If the info we have on the births of her 4.0--Daniel Young and our 4.3 Mary "Mollie" Young are correct, then they have to have been twins! And so I have moved her info (in that blue color) up under Mollie's name until we find out otherwise.]

When I was a little girl, I used to write to Maude Stanley all the time in Charleston, WVA.  I also knew Dot and Adrian very well. They stayed at our house, and I used to get letters from them and the Keeney sisters--and I adored George Stanley. My father was named after the Stanley family.

You and I are 3rd cousins; and
Your kids and mine are 4th cousins.

Maybe ---- sounds good to me.

Subject: Genealogy Ancestry of Mathias Jung 1742

Cousins:
Last weekend I was in Lancaster, PA, at the Tell Cedars of Lebanon Midwinter Conference at the Host Inn; I arrived Friday afternoon and went to the visitor center and began inquiring about our geneology, then I went to the Moravian Town of Littitz which is 10 miles or so North of Lancaster.

This is the town where Sutter came back home to after they trashed his mill and land in the California Gold Rush.  Joe Wood's Gold Wagon circa 1898 was on display there when cousin Stanley Farenkamm took me there to see it in1989 or so. His wife Mary (Young) was a descendent of Mathias Jung in Lancaster. Michael Jung was the only one with that name buried in the cemetery behind the Church in Littitz.

Mathias  and his younger brother Marcus came over from Rotterdam on the "Loyal Judith" to Philadelphia and then to Lancaster where Mathias was a burgess (mayor of the boro) and cordwainer (cut cordwood for his store) and Marcus was a blacksmith. They changed their names in 1747 to Matthew Young and Marks or Markes Young when they gave allegiance to King George.

In the Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine on Page 122 for 1965 at mid page below Item (13) Orphans  Court in the next paragraph it reads "John Hobson who intermarryed with the widow of Mathias Young (footnote 15, deceased is appointed guardian over Henry Herclerodt, Orphan child of Henry Herclodt deceased, in room of the said Mathias Young."

Footnote 15 reads: "The will of Matthew Young of Lancaster Borough, dated 12 July and proved 27 July 1749, mentions his wife but not by name, children Conrad, Jacob, Catharine, Mary  and Christina and nominated his brother Marks Young executor.  Will Book A-1,177:1749."

The will on microfilm in the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, just down Rt. 30 from the Host Inn at 2215 Millstream Road where Carolyn Wenger is Director, Lancaster, PA 17602-1429, is written in English script and also mentions John Graves as an executor and gives all the children 50 pounds Pa Currency when they are 21 and Conrad as the primary heir, being the oldest son; the house/store was located next to property owned by E. Stoudt, and there is a brewery by that name in Adamsburg today.  Copies of the Will are available from the Court House where the microfilm was made.

I hope this is helpful to all my cousins and please pass it on.

Hi,
1.)  Was wondering if you know anything about Mary Elizabeth Young?  I have a picture of her and on it is written -- Mary Elizabeth Young, part Chickahominy Indian.  Does this ring a bell?  Who was her mother?  Is there a possibility she could be Indian?
WHEN THE SOLDIERS CAME AND TOOK ALL THE CATTLE, HOGS, HORSES AND PRODUCE OF CONRAD YOUNG AND HIS WIFE MARGARET JAMES,  SISTERS MARY ELIZABETH AND FANNY RODE OFF ON THEIR SIDE SADDLES AND WERE TAKEN IN BY THEIR COUSINS THE RUFFNERS. CONRAD AND HIS WIFE MARGARET WERE TAKEN OFF TO CAMP CHASE?

AFTER THE CIVIL WAR THEIR LAND, WHERE MOM IS NOW IN MEADOWBROOK MANOR, WAS BOUGHT UP BY CARPETBAGGERS (THE CABELLS?)

MARY ELIZABETH'S MOTHER WAS MARGARET JAMES WHOSE FATHER WAS JESSE JAMES.  HER MOTHER WAS A MORRIS AND HER FATHER FOUGHT IN THE VIRGINIA MILITIA DURING THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR.

MARY WAS THE THIRD WIFE OF JOE WOOD, WHOSE GOLD WAGON IS AT SUTTER'S MILL NATIONAL  PARK, ACCORDING TO YOUR DAD WHEN HE TOOK ME THERE.

OUR GRANDMOTHER MABEL STANLEY GRAFTON, WHO LIVED TO BE ALMOST 104, SAID WE WERE PART CHEROKEE AND POCAHONTAS' TRIBE--WHICH I THOUGHT TO BE DELAWARE, BUT COULD BE CHICKAHOMINY(?).

2.)  Does anyone know what George Stanley's real last name is?  His parents were massacred by Indians when he was 7 years old, while he was watching.
EVIDENTLY THIS MAY BE ONE OF MARY'S SIBLINGS, AS GEORGE WASHINGTON STANLEY WAS THE HUSBAND OF OUR GREAT-GRANDMOTHER FANNY YOUNG STANLEY, MARY ELIZABETH'S SISTER.

GEORGE WASHINGTON STANLEY'S FATHER WAS ISAAC STANLEY FROM GEORGE'S CREEK, THE NEXT HOLLOW EAST OF CAMPBELL'S CREEK WHERE THE STANLEY HOME WAS AT THE MOUTH OF WASH HOLLOW.

PERHAPS ISAAC'S DAD WAS GEORGE STANLEY?  OUR OLDEST COUSIN GEORGE STANLEY WILL BE 96 IN OCTOBER.  IT WAS HIS 29 TH ANNUAL FAMILY REUNION I ATTENDED ON JULY 4TH AT PUTNAM COUNTY PARK WITH HIS GRANDDAUGHTERS THERE FROM NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND CARSON CITY, NEVADA.  GEORGE'S PHONE NUMBER IN CHESAPEAKE, A DEMOCRATIC TOWN WHERE HE WAS THE REPUBLICAN MAYOR TWICE, IS 304--949-4132.  ASK HIM?  PERHAPS COUSIN JOHN GWIN HAS THIS INFORMATION?

Subject: Stanley/Young Update

Cousin John,
I was in Charleston last Saturday 2006 with Cousin George Stanley, 96; he showed me the Stanley family as researched by a Belcher nephew. It said our forefathers were called Stonely back in England around 1611 or so.  I also saw that the "Loyal Judith" came from Rotterdam to Philadelphia with our ancestor Mathias Jung (Matthew Young after 1747) in 1732 and not 10 years later as I believed.  It also said that Captain John Young, the scout for Washington, Indian Fighter, and incorporator of Charleston buried on the hill above Young's Bottom near Clendennin, was the father of Charles Conrad Young, our great-grandfather who is buried in the Hendrick Cemetery in the curve before Hawk's Nest State Park. Charles Conrad was Fanny Young Stanley's and Mary Young Wood's father and owned the land where Mom is at the Meadowbrook Nursing Center. George will have David or Doris Aliff mail me the pages about the Stanley/ Young family.

Cousin Beverly,
        Grandma Grafton (Mabel Stanley Grafton) said we were related to Jesse James and Harry Truman.  Jesse James was the 1784 version or father of Margaret James Young in the DAR & SAR Geneology that is registered. Grandmother said Solomon Young, Harry Truman's Father-in-law  had his family bible burned and the connection could NOT be proven, so I am glad you have cleared this up.
        However, Harry Truman was Grandmaster of Masons in Missouri, and both of the Adams, Sam and John Quincy, were part of the Anti-Masonic movement? Which Adams was it that was mentioned in the Ruffner lineage as the governor was allegedly a cousin who took in Fanny and Mary Young after Conrad and Margaret were taken off to Camp Chase???? and then lost their land to carpetbaggers when they returned after the Civil War.  John

One account of the Booker T. Washington family and the Ruffner reunion said we were related to Adams I believe. We are definitely related to Harry S.

Tom,
        When I was an elected PA State Constable I went in the CourtHouse in Lancaster and copied the will that was proved (probated) in July1749 when Matthew Young's widow intermarried with a Hobson; I believe hehad 2 sons and 3 daughters.  His next door neighbor was a Staub family
and there is a brewery there today with that name!
        My paternal ancester with the same name as me, John Corey, builtthe first log cabin in the village of New London, south of Norwalk, Mylanand Sandusky and west of Akron.  Perhaps we could meet near there. Thatwould be southeast of Toledo I believe! I look forward to meeting youbefore too long!  John Corey is buried next to a Grange Hall in Lake Twp.East of Coldwater Michigan!  John

John, By the way, I never answered your question about where we are. Unfortunately Toledo is on the Western side of the state, actually  on the western end of Lake Erie.  Here's an idea. . . My father's immediate   family used to hold reunions every year or two in West Virginia.  It seems that the family stopped doing that after the last one about three years ago.   Most of my father's generation has passed away, and the cousins are truly everywhere.  The idea of rounding up as many ancestors of Mathias  Young as possible for a weekend somewhere has some appeal to me, although I  think it would be a daunting task.  (Lancaster comes to mind)  The trouble  is communication and also the fact that so many are older, or perhaps  too young to care.  But what a great time that would be if we could pull it off!  I know the descendants of Thomas Jefferson do this to this day.

Also, I recently posted a picture of the first page of Mathias' will  on my blog.  Pretty interesting stuff.  I have a photocopy of the whole  document as well as some of the other documents from the Lancaster museum.  I have no objection to anyone "lifting" it off the site.  If you or anyone else is interested, I'll post the whole thing.

Tom, I once again saved the Geneology you sent until I can get the program to open it; cousin John Gwin has the geneology site for our family and I have cced this to him. I wonder if he opened what you sent him? Gleevec normally costs $2000/month, but Novartis gives me samples to keep my leukemia in check and my glucose number is around 160 as I monitor it daily.  I have no problem getting around, but get tired and need rest more than I used to. Cousin John is thin and seems to have survived his horrible car accident many years ago well, at least that was my impression when we met at the New Mexico Border several years  ago.         I will gladly come visit you in Ohio if you give me  directions as Pittsburgh is not that far away I believe.  John Corey By the way Marcus was Mathias Jung's brother and he was a blacksmith while Matthew was a burgeous and cord wainer!

Subject: Fw: Young family and Wood family


Hi Tom,
I was looking at some of this background, and I think you have crossed the lines up somewhere.
 
Joseph Jr. WOODS.1,2 (Parents: Joseph WOODS and Elizabeth LOGAN. not correct)
My ggrandfather  was Joseph Wood, Jr.  Married to Lillian Mabel Turner

That part is correct and the kids are correct except where noted in red.  There is no "S" on the end.

William Wood was from Gallia County, Ohio.  After that they lived in Virginia, which later became West Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley. Eva Ruffner was the daughter of Joseph Ruffer who bought 1000 acres and put in a stage stop, traveler's hotel on the river. That land became downtown Charleston, West Virginia.  The original house and land which the family lost in bankruptcy in 1939 sits on the capitol grounds next to the Govenor's Mansion and was the G's mansion until they built that one.

William Wood, Sr and Abigail Grigsby
son:  Nehemiah Wood, Sr.--
            son: Nehemiah Wood, Jr  (1770-1824) married Eve Ruffner (2nd wife)
                    son:  Joseph Wood, Sr  b 1809-1899) and Mary Elizabeth Young  (3rd wife)
                                son:  Joseph Wood Jr  married to Lillian Mabel Turner
                                            Children:  10
Joseph WOOD Jr. and Spouse: Lillian Mabel TURNER.
1,2 Children were: Orion Joseph WOOD, Infant Daughter WOODS, Mabel Lillian WOOD, Adrian Clellan WOODS, Vernon Arthur WOODS, Mary Elizabeth Evelyn WOOD, Alice Besse WOOD, Alta Jessie WOOD, Ida Mae Wood,  Albert Leonard WOOD.

So I think somewhere the lines got mixed up in research, because the family never was in Charleston, SC
 
Beverly
__________________________________________________________________________
John,

First, my regards to you and cousin Beverly and Ralph.  I never typed the family history into the form many of you have.  I have used computer software and combined (too many) files and snippets of information, most of which I have found on the internet.  Clearly there are errors in this file, and I don’t claim anywhere that it is all documented and found error free.  Most of the files came by way of ancestry.com and a few files I found floating around the internet like my own.  I also got much of my information from the Mormon site familysearch.org.  I have to admit that this file got way too large, and unmanageable and at one time was over 250,000 names, most of which came from a cousin who traced his whole family line back to Adam and Eve.  I can understand the desire to do so, but there were a lot of “unknowns” in the list.  It took a long time to purge the file back down to the 25,000 it is now, and even so I am pretty much inclined to start over and just stick with what I am sure of on my own.

One way to look at what I have in an easier to understand form is to download the “gedcom” file I have posted at youngnet.us and open a program like the free one available at the familysearch.org site.  If you do so, you will see everything I have laid out the same way I see it.
 
Cousin Beverly, I really want to hear about the Wood line.  It is from  there that I descended, and I  find the whole story fascinating.  I welcome any corrections you care to pass my way.

As I told you, my mother has Alzheimer’s disease, and when you last wrote, we thought she was going to die within a few days, but she has rallied and should be around for a while.  The strange thing is that she had a few days where she could carry on a conversation and react to the rest of the family, but that has passed and although she is still alive she is back to being pretty much unresponsive.

My best to all of you, and if loading that file into the above mentioned software doesn’t answer any questions about what I have, I doubt if I can offer much more.  As I said, one of these days I think I will just start over and keep the file down to a manageable size.

Cousin Tom,

I'm here in Sagle, Idaho with cousin Beverly Goding on her husband Ralph's computer.  She has all her Wood Family ancestry including the connection to Solomon Young, Harry Truman's maternal Grandfather through that ancestry and Nehemiah Wood and the Ruffners. She doesn't seem to have any of the information listing Charles Conrad Young who was buried in the Hendrick Cemetary in the curve just below Hawk's Nest State park next to adopted George Stanley in 1905 at the age of 95+. Could you send the lineage from Charles Conrad and Margaret James back to Mathias Jung and Anna Fey in and those other German ancestor you may have? Thanks, Cousin John Corey

Hoping you can help me on one of my Young family members.
 
I am looking for the parents of Elizabeth Young who was married to William Augustus Allen.
She was born circa 1820 and died 15Jan1890 in Clendenin, Kanawha Co WV.
Buried at Hayes Cemetery at Falling Rock, Kanawha Co WV.

I believe they were married at the home of George Young. I know a Charles Young represented her for many years when she was trying to get William’s pension from the Civil War.

Children included:

Jeanetta (m. Keenan Coleman),
John Henry (m. Savannah Rucker),
William A. (m. Cassandra England),
Uriah (m. Sarah Icenhower, Savannah Rucker Allen after John’s death),
Rutha (my ancestor-m. Isaiah Smith),
Maria,
Rosina (m. Andrew Floyd England)
 
I can’t determine who Elizabeth’s parents were. I though George and Eudosia Huddleston Young, but maybe not. Do you have any info on her?
 
Thanks for any help you may be able to give me.

Hi John,

I saw your questions sent to Judi Brinegar posted on her website back in January. I don't know if anyone has answered your question so I just wanted to share with you what I have.
 
Elizabeth was not a Young; she was a Hayes.  Her parents were John Hayes and Elizabeth "Betsy" Naylor.  After John's death in 1836, Betsy married George Young. That is why Elizabeth and William were married at the home of George Young. This was her mother and stepfather's home.   After George died, Elizabeth's mother went on to marry a third time to Samuel Estep.  I hope this helps!
 
Best of Luck,

My name is Jackie Sue Young.  I am the granddaughter of Harvey H. Young and Olive Mae Young.  My father was Jasper Harrison Young, born 9/11/1917.  My mother was Alvalyon Delores (Tucker) Young, born 05/15/1923.  My mother died in 1982, my father died two years ago.  I grew up with a lot of cousins.  Many cousins I have never met. 
 
My Aunt Cora Young Jones was the eldest of Harvey and Olive Mae's children.  She was married to Simon Jones.  Their children were:
Marvin Lee; Ralph; Janette; Samona; Francis; Mary; Shirlely; Sue; Richard.  I may have left someone out, but some of us knew each other as children and some of the others were older than I.
Nancy Young Canterberry - I did not know all of her family as well as some.  Nancy was married to Roamy Canterberry. 
Aunt Peggy Young Talbert married to Okle Talbert; children:  Twins - Tommy and Judy; Larry, Jennings; Glenn; Gary; Jack Douglas; Harvey; Twins - Ruth Ann and Ray.  Again, I may have left some out but these are the cousins that I knew growing up.
Uncle Harvey Young - was killed in a slate fall in the mines when he was 17.
Uncle Jennings Young - died as a young child.

Auant Clara Belle Young Greathouse - married to William Greathouse; sons Randy and Billy.
Uncle Hoy Young
Uncle Jimmy Young

John, I noticed you also are amassing data on the Morris family. 
Would you like for me to send my Descendant Tree for William "the Pioneer" Morris?
He's my ancestor via Henry Morris and Mary 'Polly' Bird/Byrd and their daughter Sarah 'Sally' who married Charles Francis Young, the latter being the parents of John Bird Young.
Here's what I have on John Bird Young and Margaret Young:

Subject: In regards to William A. Allen and wife Elizabeth

Hi John,

I saw your questions sent to Judi Brinegar posted on her website back in January. I don't know if anyone has answered your question so I just wanted to share with you what I have.
 
Elizabeth was not a Young; she was a Hayes.  Her parents were John Hayes and Elizabeth "Betsy" Naylor.  After John's death in 1836, Betsy married George Young. That is why Elizabeth and William were married at the home of George Young. This was her mother and stepfather's home.   After George died, Elizabeth's mother went on to marry a third time to Samuel Estep.  I hope this helps!
 
Best of Luck,
Melinda Patton Garbacz

Subject: More information on the Young/Hayes families

John,

I'm sorry I think I read the post wrong and now I believe I understand that the website is yours! It is wonderful! I was wondering if you had any more information on what is suppose to be Conrad's second wife Elizabeth/Margret Hayes?

I am not sure how or where to start to keep this from being confusing. But here goes.

 
From 1810 on in the US Federal Census for Kanawha county, the following families are always together. They are listed as
 
John Young
Eleanor Niler (Naylor; widow of Stephen Naylor)
John Hays
Solomon Stricker/Strickland (Other places it is Ephraim Strickland, possibly brother or son?)
 
It is believed that these families all moved to Kanawha county together, but from where we don't know. These four families intermarried so many times that it is hard to keep up with. Of course we can trace back to where John Young came from, but to my knowledge no one can figure out where the Naylor and Hayes families came from.
 
John Hayes married Elizabeth "Betsy" Naylor who was a daughter of Stephen and Eleanor. They had a daughter Eleanor Hayes who married my 4th great grandfather William Patton. At least five of the other Hayes children married either Youngs or Stricklands.
 
So after all of that, my main goal is to find the ancestors of William Patton and of John Hayes.  After studying your website, I have a really crazy theory.
 
Is it possible that when John Hayes came to Kanawha Co., he was traveling with his sister's stepson John Young? OR were the two Johns stepbrothers? Was John Young's stepmother, Elizabeth/Margaret Hayes, only a Hayes by marriage? Could she have been John Hayes' mother instead of sister? Or could she be an aunt?? I think we might eventually find a direct relationship here. Again this is all just my crazy theory from the new info from your website.
 
Take care and I hope to hear from you soon,
Melinda Patton Garbacz

Subject: Uriah Young


Hello!!  I may have another line to add to your family tree!  My Great Grandfather was Uriah Young from Kanawha West Virginia.  I have him in the 1850 Federal Census living with George Young and new wife Elizabeth Hayes.  Appearantly Eudoshi Huddleston Young died and George remarried in 1836.  Anyway, Uriah married Martha Jane Hannah who lived in there, too.  They married in 1888, 1890 if you look it up on the West virginia marriage data base.  Uriah and Martha Jane had 7 children in West Virginia:

M. M. Pomeroy b. 30 May 1891 d. 197? South Norfolk, Virginia.  He never married
Ben Burton b. 1892 d. 197? South Norfolk, Virginia.  Married Blanche ?
Ida Belle b. 1894
James Extra b.24 December 1895 d. 1985 South Norfolk, Virginia.  Married Thelma McPherson and had 12 children (I have all info if you're interested)
Daniel Weston b. 07 October 1897 and was rumored by family tales to have moved to Texas, but I haven't tracked him down.
Ina Jewel b. 23 December 1899 d.22 May 1988 Elizabeth City, NC She married David McPherson, (James Young married Thelma McPherson and Ina Young married her brother David McPherson)
Ivie M b. 17 October 1903 Married John Wallace and lived in South Norfolk/Chesapeake Virginia
I have more information on this family line.  James was my Grandfather.  His 12 children had many children, too!
Uriah died around 1904/5 and Martha remarried and had 2 more children.  Let me know if you want more!  Donna Young McMahan
