"Henry Young's will is also recorded in Cannon Co.,, Tennessee February 7, 1848. I believe this to be the time of the death of his wife, Elizabeth. Elizabeth had been willed all of Henry's Estate until her remarriage or death, at which time his estate was to go to his children. Also recorded in Cannon Co.,, Tennessee are two Settlement Records for the estate of Henry Young one recorded in Book 1 on Page 92 at the December term of 1849 Co., Court. The other recorded in the same book, page #169 at the May term of 1851 Co., Court. Many deeds recorded in Cannon Co.,, Tennessee give a record of when the estate was settled."
