General Notes: Roy is enumerated with his parents, brother Archie, and sister Emma in the 1920 federal census for Lynn Township, Kingfisher County, Oklahoma. In the 1930 census for Mathewson Township, Canadian County, Oklahome, he is enuberated with his grandfather Alonzo P. Courtney.

Obituary of Roy A. Young (Note: He had been injured in an automobile accident in 1992 and never fully recovered. He died on Feb. 20th, 1993 of complications of that accident.)

Funeral services for Roy Young will be conducted Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Martin Funeral Chapel with Rev. A.L. Martin officiating. Burial will follow in the Berlin Cemetery under the direction of Martin Funeral Home.

Roy A. Young was born March 16, 1911 in Piedmont and died Saturday at the age of 81. He attended Edmond and Oklahoma City schools and at the age of 19 moved to his grandfather's farm near Berlin, where he also attended school for a while.

Roy was married to Julia French on Feb. 7, 1946, and they established their home in Erick. They operated the Erick Hospital from 1946-1970 when it was converted into a retirement center. In 1965, they established a nursing home in Erick.

In 1968, they operated the Sayre Retirement Center and continued that management until 1980. In 1977, the operation in Erick was sold. Roy operated several other enterprises but farm and ranching was his greatest love.

Survivors include his wife; Julia Young of the Sayre home; his children: Dorcas Lucile Maloney of Central Point, Oregon, Ervin Frank Young of Kingfisher, Bessie Meryle Johnston and Wanda Sue Jones both of Central Point; one sister: Emma Warkentin of Fort Worth; 12 grandchildren and 26 great grand grandchildren.

Roy was preceded in death by his parents, two sons, one brother and two sisters.

In actuality, Roy was quite a loverman. According to his daughters, he had a loving girl friend in the early 1930's who was killed in an autombile accident. He apparently lived at that time with his Courtney grand parents in Roger Mills County. He then related with Clara Leggitt whom he imprgnated with a son Roy Clarke Leggitt in about 1932 who was born April 6th, 1933. (See his private notes.) Also in 1932 he married Opal Reynolds with whom he later had five children, the oldest being Dorcus Lucile Young who was born July 1st, 1933. He and Opal divorced and in 1947 he married Julia French who is mentioned in the above obituary.

Roy had a relationship with Clara Clark Leggitt,1,5 daughter of Oscar Jack Leggitt and Margaret Inez Hussey,. Clara was born on 11 Jul 1916 in Berlin Twp, Roger Mills, Oklahoma.1

General Notes: Source: Leggitt family records.

Clara was born while her parents were living on the Pittsburg Ranch north of Berlin. When she was three the family moved to a small two room house near Edenview where she later started school. When Clara was in the third grade her parents purchased some land from the Pittsburg Land Company seven miles northwest of Berlin. They built a big comfortable six room house there where Clara grew up.

About a year after her son Roy was born in 1933, Clara and he went to live with the Samual and Bonnie Purdy family in Carter, OK. Clara assisted Bonnie in the homemaking chores and did the family book keeping. She finished high school while at Carter in 1936. By the summer of 1937 the dust bowl made it impossible to continue making a living in Oklahoma and the family moved to California in a manner similar to John Steinbeck's novel, Grapes of Wrath.

They picked cotton and fruit the first years, but by 1940 the family had become quite successful. In 1941 Clara married Chester Leonard Smith who had a girl Roy's age and two nearly grown boys. She and Leonard had another family of a boy and two girls by 1946.

Leonard was primarily a carpenter and mechanic during the war (WWII) and post war years. However, he was seriously injured in an accident in the early 1950s and could no longer work doing physical labor. He and Clara later had a series of grocery stores and Clara entered the real estate business in the 1960s. She was quite successful and remained very active in that business until she fully retired in 1988.

General Notes: According to "Memories of Berlin Oklahoma", after she and Roy married, they moved to Erick and bought the hospital (she is a nurse). In 1965 they built a nursing home there; she operated it and Roy farmed his six hundred and eighty acres of land and raised cattle, horses, and sheep.

In August 1976 they bought a home at 1412 North Fourth Street in Sayre; they also operate a retirement center there. They plan to sell their house and nursing home and Erick and move to Sayre in January 1977. They will continue to farm and raise cattle.

2. Roy Barton Young,2,6 son of John Archie Young and Mollie Jane McCanless, was born on 19 Jun 1890 in Royse City, Rockwall, Texas,2,6 died on 29 Jan 1961 in Elk City, Beckham, Oklahoma2,6 at age 70, and was buried on 31 Jan 1961 in Fairlawn Cem..2,6

General Notes: Source: Memories of Berlin Oklahoma, Burch Printing, Elk City, Oklahoma, 1977.

Census 1900 Oklahoma.

1917-18 Draft Registration shows him as 26 years old with wife and three children residing in Kingfisher, Oklahoma. (See pictures.)

1920 Oklahoma federal census: Kingfisher County, Lynn Township. Enumeration district 237.

Roy is listed as head of household, a farmer, and a renter. He was born in TX, father and mother born in TN. He can both read and write.

The 1939-1940 Elk City Directory lists Roy B. Young (Dorcus) Agt Great Southern Ins 1303 W. 2nd Ph 802. The Great Southern Life Insurance was listed as 106 W. Bdwy Ph 277.

My cousin, Donald Meehan, lived in Elk City during the 1946/48 period while his father owned a business there. He recalls "Big Roy" Young as being an insurance salesman.

Roy B. Young is also listed in the 1951/52, 1954 and 1960 City Directories. The 1951/1952 also lists Patsy J. Young as a student with the same address.

In 1995, the Martin Funeral Home in Elk City, OK provided me Roy's Record of Funeral information:

In 1996 I visited Elk City and talked with Norman Martin, owner of the Martin Funeral Home. Norman recalled that his parents, Roy and Dorcus Young, and several other couples would meet monthly as a social group and play Rook. They would rotate the meeting from house to house and each bring a pot luck dish.

While in Elk City I searched the microfilm archives for The Elk City Daily News, January 30, 1961 for Roy B.'s obituary. I found it on the front page with the second largest font on the page.

Roy B. Young Services for Tuesday At Methodist Church

Final rites for Roy B. Young, 70, pioneer Elk City area insurance agent and civic leader, will be conducted at 2:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon from the Methodist church with Rev. Richard E. Gibbens, minister, officiating.

Mr. Young, who had been in failing health for more than two years as a result of a lingering illness, passed away at 3:35 o'clock Sunday afternoon. He had been hospitalized this last time since Dec. 23, for several months prior to which he had actively resumed his business, his church and civic activities.

Burial will be in the local Fairlawn cemetery with Martin Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.

Leaves Wife, 4 Children

He is survived by his wife, Dorcas, of the home address, 1303 West Second, and four children: Roy A. Young of Erick, Archie L. Young of McAllen, Tex.; Mrs. Herman (Emma) Warkentin of Fort Worth, Tex.; and Mrs. Carl (Patsy Janiece) Jensen of Oklahoma City. He also leaves 10 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

In the immediate family he was preceded in death by one daughter, Elise, who died at the age of 22 months. He was also preceded in death by his parents, four brothers and a sister.

Roy Barton Young was born June 19, 1890, at Royce City, Tex., the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Young.

Moved To Berlin in '97

When Roy was seven years old his parents and family of five boys and one girl headed for Oklahoma in a covered wagon and homesteaded on a farm in the Berlin Community west of Elk City, where Roy spent most of his childhood.

On April 19, 1910, he was united in marriage at Corpus Christi, Tex., to Miss Dorcas Courtney of Piedmont, Okla. He had met his young bride while working on a farm in that area.

During their early married life, the Youngs farmed near Okarche and Kingfisher, later moving to Edmond where on Nov. 1, 1925 Mr. Young became engaged in the life insurance business, associating himself with the Great Southern Life Insurance Company, which firm he has been connected with for more than 35 years.

Transferred to Elk City in '29

After a short period of residing in Oklahoma City, Mr. Young was transferred on Oct. 12, 1929, to Elk City, where the family home has been ever since.

Mr. and Mrs. Young had just celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary last April 19, 1960 when a large group of friends and relatives gathered at their home for the event.

A life-long member of the Methodist church, Mr. Young had for many years taken an extremely active part in the activities of his church.

Active in Church, Civic Life

For more than a quarter of a century he had served as a member of the church's Official Board as well as the Board of Trustees, and had been chairman of the former. For nearly 25 years he had served as finance commission chairman, and after the local church edifice burned two years ago, he was chosen building fund-raiser chairman for this project.

He also served his church as an usher and was active in the Friendship Sunday School class.

Shortly after moving to Elk City in 1929 he became a member of the local Rotary club and has been active ever since.

Mr. Young was also a 32nd degree Mason, having been a member of the Blue lodge and York Rite bodies. For many years he was a member of the Knights Templar drill team, and was a member of the Scottish Rites and Eastern Star. He had also served on the advisory board of the Order of Rainbows.

Pallbearers for the funeral will be: Paul Wade, Frank Whitney, G. T. Hayes, Ed Dycus, Virgil Cowherd and Horace Daves.

Honorary bearers will be Oklahoma agency members of Great Southern Life Insurance company with Tom Wilson, Manager.

There is a nice one column photograph of Roy B. Young near the headline.

Also on the same front page were articles entitled: Rotarians, Rotary Anns To Sit In Body For Roy Young's Rites Tuesday and Masons to Meet at 1:30 for Roy Young's Funeral.

I (RCL) visited the Young plot at the Fairlawn Cemetery in Elk City in June 1996. It is a beautiful layout. At the center there is a large, upright, rectangular stone with YOUNG engraved on both the north and south faces. Looking south, directly to the right is a smaller, upright stone for Patsy Janiece Jensen. Directly to the left is a small flat stone for Baby Dorcas Elise Young. To the south of the central stone are two small flat stones, side-by-side, one for Roy B. and one for Dorcas.

Census 1900 Oklahoma, indicates both his parents were born in Tennessee. It also indicated he had had 11 children with five still alive. The census indicated the parents and children could all read and write.

Source: Memories of Berlin Oklahoma, Burch Printing, Elk City, Oklahoma, 1977.

(Note by RCL - 1900 census inicates that Myrtle and Roy were born in Texas in 1881 and 1890 and James was born in Oklahoma in 1893. Therefore, the following story is slightly in error.)

John and Mollie Young came to Oklahoma from Tennessee in a covered wagon about 1900. When they got this far they filed and homesteaded on a one hundred and sixty acre farm three miles west of what is called Berlin now, and a mile south.

They were raised by slaves in Tennessee.

They built a half dugout to live in until they could do better. It was half on top and half of the bottom was under ground.

The deed papers were made up at Mangum, Oklahoma. The land was deeded by President Theodore Roosevelt and signed by F.M. McKean at Mangum, Oklahoma, secretary, to John A. Young on February 28, 1906.

The deed then was recoreded and dated March 4, 1911 at 3:00 p.m.

After getting settled, they built corrals for two cows and three mules.

Rollie and Charlie, being the oldest boys, went to Texas on their horses to work for six months.

The Indians turned the cattle out; the mules taken up with the wild horses
They had to get Rollie and Charlie back with their horses to get their own horses back.

They lived in this half dugout until 1915 when they had prospered enough to build a box house, made of one by twelve inch boards. It was a two room house with two shed rooms on one side and a porch on the other side.

The house was finished on the inside of the flat one by twelves with cheesecloth and paper. The lumber to build the house was hauled from El Reno to the farm in a wagon with a team.

John A. Young, Sr. bought five acres at Berlin from John B. Barnes and homesteaded there in about 1918.

The farm was rented out until 1930 when a grandson, Roy Young Jr., moved on it and rented it until 1950. Then Roy Young, Jr. bought the farm, one hundred sixty acres in 1960, and the place has never been out of the family name. Roy Young, Jr. still farms it. (In 1977)

Roy Young, Jr. tore down the old box house and built a little new four room house on it.

The Young Families of Early Giles County, Tennessee has the following:

John Archie Young [Y3a10], son of William C. Young, was born in November 1849 at Bradshaw. In September 1865 he was unmarried and was living in Giles County. Later he married and a great-grandson was living at Chanute, Oklahoma in 1985. (DM,15nqwr)

A later version of The Young Families contains:

John Archie Young [Y3a10], son of William C Young and Elizabeth Kennedy, was born 27 March 1850 at Pulaski, Tennessee. In September 1865 he was unmarried and was living in Giles County. By the early 1870s he had married Mollie Jane McCanless. She was born at Lewisburg in Marshall County on 17 December 1851, daughter of John S McCanless and Mary Elezeth Morris. See Dianna Young [Y1f]. John was a farmer, and moved to the Oklahoma Territory. He died at Berlin, Oklahoma on 20 February 1926. Mollie also died there, on 18 December 1931; both are buried in Berlin. They had six children-
a.Charles Young, b 1873
b.Rollie Young, b 12 Aug 1877
c.Mary Elizabeth Young, b 6 Jan 1881
d.Eddie Young, b 1886
e.Roy Young, b 19 Jun 1890

John married Mollie Jane McCanless 2,6,8 on 2 Oct 1870 in , Giles, Tennessee. Mollie was born on 17 Dec 1851 in Lewisburg, Marshall, Tennessee,2,6,8 died on 18 Dec 1931 in Berlin Twp, Roger Mills, Oklahoma2,6,8 at age 80, and was buried in Berlin Twp, Roger Mills, Oklahoma.2,6,8

Mrs. Young, widow of John A. Young who died six years ago, died on the day following her eightieth birthday. She had been ill for several weeks of pneumonia and influenza. Mrs. Young had only returned in October to Berlin with her daughter Miss Myrtle Young, after residing there with her son Roy B. Young for several months and and Sayre since the death of John Young.

The aged woman was born near Polaski, Tenn., December 17, 1851 and lived there with her parents until her marriage in 1871 when she came to Terrell, Texas. The family came to the Indian Territory in 1898 and homesteaded on land two and one-half miles south of the present town of Berlin.

6. Alonzo Price Courtney,2 son of Thomas F. Courtney and Amanda M. Johnson, was born on 12 Jan 1863 in , Andrew, Missouri,2 died on 5 Jan 19502 at age 86, and was buried in Matheson Cemetery In Piedmont, Oklahoma.2

General Notes: Alonzo Price Courtney is documented in the 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930 Oklahoma federal censuses. From these records we find considerable information. His father was born in Maryland and his mother was born in Kentucky. Emma's father was born in Kentucky and her mother was born in Missouri. Alonzo apparently married Emma Ellis in Missouri about 1886 and had his first two children there. Based on the ages of Lottie and Mamie, the family moved to Olkahoma between Jan 1889 and Jan 1891. Alonzo's occupation is listed as a farmer.

At the time of their arrival the Oklahoma Territory occupied less than half of the present state with the remainder as Indian Territory. Canadian County had just been formed from Seminoles and Creeks lands.

In all three censuses the family was in Canadian County which is just west of Oklahoma City. In 1900 they were in the township of Mathewson, still in the Oklahoma Territory. Statehood occurred in 1907.

Alonzo's wife Emma died in 1921. He apparently remarried. In the 1930 federal census a wife is listed. The page is hard to read but it appears her name is Sue E. She is listed as age 47. She was born in Missouri and both her parents were born in Illinois. In this census the family lived in Mathewson Township, Canadian County, Oklahoma.

8. William C. Young Sr.,2,8,9 son of Joseph Young and Sarah "Sally", was born in 1809 in Maury Or, Giles, Tennessee2,8 and died in Dec 1865 in , Giles, Tennessee2,8 at age 56.

Source: The Young Families of Early Giles County Tennessee 1986 By East Ellis Short Worsham Young. (updated version)

William C Young [Y3a], son of Joseph Young, was born about 1809 in Tennessee, likely Maury or Giles County, very soon after his parents arrived from South Carolina. William was called William Young Sr since he had a younger cousin of the same name (William Young [Y4g], born in 1817) who lived in the same neighborhood in the 1830s. About 1831 William married Elizabeth Kennedy; William's sister Nancy Young [Y3b] married William Kennedy about 1824, son of John Kennedy and Sarah Britton. There is yet no evidence that Nancy's husband was a brother of Elizabeth Kennedy. The family bible passed down by William's son John listed William's wife's name as Elizabeth Kennedy. Elizabeth was born in 1814 in Tennessee, and was alive in 1880 in Giles County living with her daughter Elizabeth. Her father was from Virginia, and mother from North Carolina. In 1835 William was living along Bradshaw Creek, for he sold 137 acres there in February of that year. This was land two doors from John Young [Y1], and next door to John Abernathy. In 1840 William lived next door to Nancy Paxton, the widow of William's cousin Nathaniel Young [Y1a], and next to Nathaniel's brother Archibald Smith Young [Y1i]. In August 1844 "William Young Sr" sold a 65 acre tract on Bradshaw Creek to Hardin Griggs. This was the southeast corner of William's father's land which was deeded to William. These land transactions over the years show that William and his wife Elizabeth spent most of their lives at Beech Hill, where he was a farmer. In 1855 William was named to be the executor in the will of Sterling Huff, father of Rebecca Huff. Soon after 25 April 1865 William died. Graves for him and Elizabeth have not been found, but may be on his farm if not in the Beech Hill or Bradshaw Cemeteries. They had twelve children-

I am not positive that Elizabeth is a sister of Mary Armstrong Kennedy but in her son's J.K. Street's letters he talks about his cousin Joe and Alfred Young. So at this point in time, I am going to say that Elizabeth is the other female in the 1820 census of John Kennedy.

Hd Qrs 9th Regt Tex Infty Braggs(Army of Tenn) Shelbyville Tenn March 1863 (No 54(Fifty four)

Dear Ninnie, Sunday March 22 - I wrote you a letter yesterday and will send it and this by Mr Glover in a few days. I wrote to Aunt Bettie Young to-day who lives down in Giles where I went a few days since on a foraging expedition. I forgot to tell you that Cousin Kate McGuire whom I wrote you about while I was at Murfreesboro:(Kate Kennedy it used to be) is dead - died about two weeks before I went to Giles - she had been on a visit to Tullahoma to see her husband who belongs to 32nd Tenn - took sick while there - came home and died soon after - they wrote for Tobe to come home and he took the letter to Gen Bragg and got a few days leave of absence - got home two or three days before she died.

Sunday March 29th - It rained very hard last night and is very cold and windy to-day - so much so that I did not preach. I went tho' to the 4th Ark as I had made the appt. and left an appt. for next sabbath. I saw one of my old college friends there and spent the day with him very pleasantly talking over old times. When I returned this evening I found that our detail had returned with our clotheing. I got all you sent me and a cake from Ma, also two letters from you and one from Ma. Tell Ma I will forward the letter that she wrote to Aunt Bettie in the morning.
Monday March 30th - Dear I sent the letter to Aunt Bettie this morning that Ma sent me to mail to her and wrote her a short one myself - tho' I wrote to her last week. I reckon I will get an answer soon. Tell Ma when she writes to aunt again to address her letters Cornersville in place of Pulaski as in going from this office they would have to pass by Cornersville and too when I was at Uncle Bills he told me to address him at Cornersville.

General Notes: The 1860 Andrew County, Missouri federal census for Rochester township indicates Thomas is a farmer with no real estate and personal property valued at $300. His wife Amanda is also listed. Interestingly, the household immediately prior to Thomas is also a Courtney family headed by Harriet Courtney, born about 1794 in Maryland. (See further discussion in Father Courtney's notes.

The 1870 Andrew County, Missouri federal census for Rochester township, Whiteville Post Office, indicated Thomas Courtney had $4000 in real estate and $2350 in personal property. There was no occupation listed for him.

13. Amanda M. Johnson,2,12,14 daughter of David Johnson and Susannah Kettering, was born on 24 Oct 1835 in , , Kentucky2,11,13,14 and died on 14 Mar 1903 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Oklahoma14 at age 67.

General Notes: The 1880 census indicated both her parents were born in Virginia.

Amanda died in Oklahoma City of pneumonia while she also had a broken leg. She was also buried in Oklahoma City.

These census record might give a lead to Amanda's heritage.

14. Fountain Ellis,2 son of Daniel Zimmerman Ellis and Mary "Polly" Senour, was born on 5 May 1830 in Benton County, Kentucky,2 died on 26 Nov 1909 in Sherman Township, Clarksdale, Dekalb Co., Missouri2 at age 79, and was buried on 27 Nov 1909 in Clarksdale, Dekalb, Missouri, , Clarksdale Cemetery.2

General Notes: This parentage of Emma Catherine Ellis is slightly circumstantial. I scanned through the 1880 Missouri Soundex film for E420 and looked for children names. I found approximately 5 Emma Ellises; however, the fact that this record had the mother's name of Darcus led me to choose this family. Also, the age matches her age in the 1920 census.

The 1880 DeKalb County, Missouri federal census indicated that Founten Ellis' father was born in Virginia and his mother was born in Kentucky. His occupation was listed as farming.

His name was spelled Fountain Ellis in the 1860 Missouri federal census. In that census his real estate was valued at $1,440 and his personal property at $646.

According to Young family history, Fountain Ellis was a minister of a Christian Church in Missouri. His birthdate is 5/5/1830.

Lucile Young Maloney provided me the following:

The late Fountain Ellis wrote the sketch of his own life. It follows:

Fountain Ellis was born May 5th, 1830 in Benton County, Kentucky. He moved to Indiana and lived there until 1849. Moved to Missouri in October of that year. Lived in Buchanan County 5 years. Married Lena F. Talbot May 3, 1852. His wife died the 11th day of March 1854. Joined the church 3rd Lord's Day in May 1854 at Longbranch, Andrew County, and was baptized by Jordan Wright. Moved to DeKalb County the 1st of April 1855. Married Dorcas Attebury on April 6, 1856. Ten children were born to them, six boys and four girls, eight of them still living. Commenced preaching in 1861. He was ordained for minister in 1862 by Jordan Wright, Wesley Craig and James Parker. Continued preaching 30 years. Since that time has had poor health. I am ready to cross the river and be with Christ. Be faithful my dear children and bretheren and we will all meet again.

Fountain Ellis

HIS LAST REQUEST

Fountain Ellis several years preceding his death put in writing some of his wishes. The Herald by request is this week publishing the letter in which those requests are embodied. The letter follows:

Amity, Mo. May 5, 1905

I, Fountain Ellis, this day 75 years old, member of the Christian Church for 51 years, make my last request of my loving wife and children.

1. When I am dead put my Sunday clothes on soon. When laid in coffin place under my head or on my breast my Old Testament that I carried so long. Bury me in a plain coffin. Spread two yards of white muslin over me. I don't want to be buried in a casket. It is wicked to bury $60 in the ground to rot when it is no benefit to anyone.

2. Take me to Dayton to have my funeral preached by Brother Rogers if living. If not, some other Christian preacher. IF you cannot procure a Christain preacher, have none. Let the elders and bretheren attend to it. Bury me on the north end of the lot near Little Guy. Leave space enough between to bury Mother on the north side of me. Take good care of your old Mother. Comfort and see that she does not want for anything and take her to church.

3. When Mother dies sell the property that is left and divide equally among yourselves. Give Ollie one hundred dollars more than any of you, I owe to her. Green must settle with the estate what he owes me as part of the estate. And don't interfere with any of the provisions of my will. Let everything be done in peace and love among yourselves. I don't want you to grieve about me, but be sure you live honest, Christian lives and all will be well soon.

4. Goodbye, dear loving wife and children. I have fought a good fight. I have kept the faith of the Son of God, and there is a Crown of Righteousness laid up for me in Heaven. There I will remain with my Loving Savior waiting and watching for you all to come. Now may the blessings of the Great God be with you and guide you in the way that will lead you to that Haven of Rest.

The following Internet message all but confirms the lineage:

Subject: Darcus Ellis
From: "Jason D. Laseter" <laseter@arn.net>
Date: Sun, 07 Dec 1997 22:47:20 -0800

While scrolling through the Gendex files, I came upon the name Darcus. This was my great-great Grandmother. My Grandmother, Ruby Stepthens, was the daughter of Olive Ellis, who married Cornelius (or Carmelius) Stephens. Olive Ellis's mother was named Darcus. Olive Ellis and Carmelius Stephens are buried in Navarro County Texas at Hamilton Beeman Cemetery, and both died in 1949. My Grandmother used to speak of her cousins named Courtney.

The LDS IGI has a marriage of Fountain Ellis to Dorcas Atteberry on 6 Apr 1856 at De Kalb, Missouri.

There is a Dorcas Atteberry in the Ancestral File (AFN:212V-W36) born about 1818 in Indiana.

The birthdate for Dorcas was obtained from a file provided by Lois (Thomas) Branch, email address Webevannin@aol.com.

16. Joseph Young,2,8,9 son of Nathaniel Young and Patty Crawford?, was born from 1780 to 1781 in 96 District, (Spartanburg), South Carolina2,8 and died from 1860 to 18692,8 at age 80.

General Notes: The Young Families (updated) has the following information about Joseph Young:

Joseph Young [Y3], son of Nathaniel Young, was born in 1780 or 1781 in 96 District (which became Spartanburg County in 1785) in the South Carolina province. Since census records indicate that Joseph's birth date is very close to the 29 July 1781 birth date of his brother Thomas [Y4], they may have been twins. Joseph moved to Maury County Tennessee with his brother Nathaniel about 1808 and was named with Nathaniel to serve on jury duty in March 1809 in Maury County. See Nathaniel's biography. Joseph moved to Giles County by 1820, and bought 200 acres at Bradshaw in May 1821. He was summoned for jury duty in Giles County in August 1824 and was a farmer. He married Sarah "Sally" _____ by 1808. Since he lived in Maury county about 1808, and there is no record of his marriage in that county, they must have married in Spartanburg County soon before coming to Tennessee. Sally was born 24 January 1786 in South Carolina and died in Giles County on 15 July 1857; she is buried in Center Point Cemetery at Bradshaw, about two miles from the home of Joseph's brother John Young [Y1]. Joseph was a devoted family man; he and his son posted bond as guardians of William A Young [Y1b1], "orphan of John Young deceased" in November 1838. And on 12 September 1857, he gave land and slaves to his two children. On 23 December 1858 Joseph was married (by L D Harwell) to Lucy McKnight. She was born in North Carolina in 1803. Joseph and his new wife Lucy were not found after 1860. Because of his advanced age, Joseph had probably died in the 1860s at Bradshaw where he lived for over forty years. Since his first wife and his brother Thomas are buried in Center Point Cemetery, Joseph was probably also, even though his grave has not been found. His children were- a.William C Young, b 1809
b.Nancy Young, b c1809 (VS,15iknqzmcy, 1z,10y)

Joseph married Sarah "Sally" 2 before 1808 in Maybe, Spartanburg, South Carolina. Sarah was born on 24 Jan 1786 in , , South Carolina,2 died on 15 Jul 1857 in , Giles, Tennessee2 at age 71, and was buried in Bradshaw, Pulaski, Tennessee, Center Point Cemetery.2

Children from this marriage were:

8         i.  William C. Young Sr. 2,8,9 (born in 1809 in Maury Or, Giles, Tennessee - died in Dec 1865 in , Giles, Tennessee)

         ii.  Nancy Young 17 was born in 1810 in 96th District, (Spartanburg), South Carolina.17

Joseph next married Lucy McKnight 2 on 23 Dec 1858. Lucy was born in 1803 in , , North Carolina.2


17. Sarah "Sally" 2 was born on 24 Jan 1786 in , , South Carolina,2 died on 15 Jul 1857 in , Giles, Tennessee2 at age 71, and was buried in Bradshaw, Pulaski, Tennessee, Center Point Cemetery.2

Sarah married Joseph Young 2,8,9 before 1808 in Maybe, Spartanburg, South Carolina. Joseph was born from 1780 to 1781 in 96 District, (Spartanburg), South Carolina2,8 and died from 1860 to 18692,8 at age 80.

18. John Kennedy 17 was born from 1770 to 1780 in , , Virginia17 and died bef feb 30 1835 in , Giles, Tennessee.17

General Notes: Julie Coley provided me the following:

From: Flournoy Rivers' Manuscripts by W. Thomas Cardin

February Term 1835 Monday Feb 23
John Kennedy's will probated and John Kennedy and Wm. Young qualify as executors.

Records of 1837-39

My (Julie Coley) Conclusions on the Kennedy family.

Taken from my book J.K. Street Civil War Letters - 9th Texas Infantry at wehaveneatstuff.com

I met with a cousin Rev Harvey Ritchey son of Uncle Bob Ritchey who resides at Waco. I stayed with him all night last night I have not seen him for 9 years but I knew him as soon as I saw him - he grasped my hand and shook it heartily - said I "cousin Harve I don't believe you know me." He is quite a fast spoken man, he said "yes, yes - sir - Kennedy - Kennedy" "no" said I not quite "O but I see - I see the Kennedy in your eye sir." I then told him who I was. Dear Uncle Bob wrote ma that cousin Harve was taken at Donalson and wanted to know of me if I knew whether any arrangements were going to be made for exchange of prisoners. They have all been exchanged - the exchange was affected last week. I had three other cousins taken there too - Will Kennedy, Joe Young and Alfred Young. Cousin Harve says that they fought like tigers - would have been no kin to any of the Kennedy's if they had not; for I never knew a Kennedy yet who was a coward. If I do say it myself I believe they are all brave.

I saw a soldier here this morning who belongs to the 32nd Tenn the same which my cousins Joe and Alfred Young and Will Kennedy belong; he is well acquainted with them - said the regt was now in the neighborhood of Murfreesboro' they were all taken prisoners at Donaldson and have lately been exchanged. I know of no one that I would be prouder to see than Will Kennedy; (except "the loved ones at home") we were raised up boys together and I always loved him almost like a brother. Tell ma that one of Uncle Simpson Kennedy's boys was killed at Donaldson - which one it was I am unable to learn the gentleman who informed me of the fact said he did not know his given name - only knew that he was nephew to the Capt of his company (Worley).

I passed thro' Cornersville this morning - saw a great many of my old acquaintances but having grown out of their knowledge not any of them recognized me. It took me all day to come from Cornersville to Uncle Billy's. I had so many acquaintances to see. None of Uncle Bill Young's folks new me. I called to know if I could get to stay all night - he said I could, and went with me to put up my mules - found out in the course of conversation that I was from Texas and Aunt and the girles wished to know if I knew anything about a Mrs. Kennedy and her son K Street. I knew them well - lived in the same town, and could tell them all about them; after answering all inquiries sadisfactoryly - I made myself known. Then I had a time of it for a while such hugs and kisses I have not had since I left home. Tuesday March 10th - I and cousin Alfred went over to cousin Will Kennedy's after it quit raining. Will was not at home and we went up to Grand Ma Alsaps (Will's grand ma on his mothers side) none of them knew me - but after I set down and pulled off my hat cousin Maggie (Will's sister, Mrs. Smith now - recognized me and ran and jumped in my left exclaiming "it is Cousin K." We then went back to Will's and he still had not come back, so we made ourselves easy till he returned. When Alfred introduced me as Mr Johnson he took my hand and looked me full in the face. I started to reseat myself and he said "hold on sir, those eyes! they won't do for Mr Johnson! Well K!! I'll declare you were the last man I expected to see. But you rascal you couldn't play off on me for Mr Johnson." Wednesday March 11th - We went out among the neighbors to-day and gathered up a fine lot of eggs. It is rather too early in the season for butter and chickens and from the speed I am making I don't think I will do much in the chicken and butter line. Thursday March 12th - I spent the day in geting up more eggs, have got some 50 odd doz and 4 lbs butter. I will stay to-night with Aunt again, and start back to camps in the morning. Friday March 13th - Aunt and cousin Will's wife fixed me up a sack of provisions - some eggs and butter to carry back with me to camps. I am stopping this evening near Lewisburg - left Uncle Bill's this morning. I had a prety hard time to get off from them all. Aunt took on almost as bad as Ma did when I left Texas - said I felt so near to her.

Additional info from the letters:

Dear Tomey (Tommy or Thomas) Kennedy was here just a few minnets ago - he is a cousin of mine - he came up with his sister - Tobe McGuire's wife - she is on a visit to her husband. I am going over to see Kate in the morning.

My Dear Ninnie, Sunday Dec 21st - O what a beautiful day not a cloud to be seen! Dear I have been over to the 32nd Tenn to see cousin Katie to-day - she is a beautiful women. I have not seen her before since she was a little girl - she looks quite natural - looks young - is young too - altho' she has been married long enough to have two beautiful children, a boy and a girl. I enclosed two letters to you to-day and on to Ma, tho' the gentleman by whom I send them will not leave before next Tuesday. I wrote you in my letter that cousin Kate was up on a visit to see her husband Tobe McGuire.

I had all along thought that Mary Armstrong Kennedy was the daughter of William Kennedy who left the will in Sumner Co. in 1809 because J.K. Street mentions "cousins" and "Uncle Simpson" in his letters. Now I believe that the "cousins" are second cousins and "Uncle Simpson" is Mary Armstrong Kennedy's uncle and J.K. Streets Great Uncle and that Mary Armstrong Kennedy is the daughter of Sarah Britton and John Kennedy. She named her first son John and her first daughter Sarah after her parents and she named her second son William after her grandfather and her second daughter Mary A. after herself or if she followed the rule of naming, after her grandmother who many speculate might have been an Armstrong AND a first wife of William.

Although I am fairly certain that Mary Armstrong is the daughter of John and Sarah, all of the other siblings that I have listed are purely speculation. John Kennedy were the first Kennedy to settle in Giles Co. TN and those listed are the only Kennedy's in Giles Co. in the early 1800's. Along with some of the information contained in J.K. Street's letters, I am also fairly certain that William, Overton, John and possibly Thomas and Elizabeth are her siblings.
But I have received new information stating that THIS John Kennedy is NOT the son of William of Prudence. I am still having trouble believing that, since in the J.K. Street Letters he talks about his Uncle Simpson and Aunt Bettie Young, and Uncle Bob Ritchey and his cousins Alfred Young, and Will Kennedy, etc. I am still looking for that one piece of proof that will tie all of this together but for the moment, I still feel that she fits as the granddaughter of William and Prudence.

The First Settlers of Giles County TN

Adam Hightower, Hardy Hightower, John Kennedy, John Eliff, James McKnight, Samuel McKnight, Joel Jarmin, John Young and Nicholas Holly settled in the Bradshaw Creek neighborhood between 1807 and 1810

John Kennedy was the first Kennedy that is known to have come to Giles Co., TN. In the 1895 book The Street Genealogy by Mary Street it states that Mary Armstrong Kennedy had 9 brothers.
According to the 1830 Giles Co. Census, John Kennedy had 7 males and 2 females living in the Household besides himself and his wife Sarah. Several households away, there was William Kennedy and another male living with him that was 15-20 in 1830. That would make 9 brothers. Although this is purely speculation at this time, I feel that every Kennedy male in the 1830 census was a son of John except one. There is a W. Kennedy in the 1830 census Page 203 who is the same general age as John and I feel like this is most likely his brother, possibly William. John has 2 boys still living with him and Thomas had one so this accounts for every male Kennedy in the 1830 census. I may be completely wrong about this but every one of the Kennedy's in the census is the right age to be sons of John and Sarah.

Sumner Co., TN (State vs. John Kennedy, Sept. 19, 1804). John Kennedy was brought up on charges of trespassing, assault, and battery against Thomas Britton. John Kennedy, a gunsmith, was at the house of Thomas Britton where he beat and wounded said Britton. John Kennedy pleads guilty and is fined $1 and court costs.

John Kennedy Jr. listed in Capt Cantrell's Co on the 1810 Sumner Co Tax List. Armstrong Kennedy was also listed in Capt Cantrell's Co in 1810.

1834. Delegates to the constitutional convention from Lincoln and Giles, James FULTON, A.A. KINCANNON and Thomas C. PORTER, James FULTON'S name does not appear among the signers of the constitution in the Gazetteer. Bradley KIMBROUGH'S name appears as a delegate from Monroe county. In the apportionment under the ordinance following the constitution, Lincoln and Giles formed one senatorial district, the polls to be compared at the house of John KENNEDY. Lincoln elected two representatives. It gives the names of the lawyers at Fayetteville in 1833 as follows: James FULTON, Sam'l W. CARMACK, Wm. M. INGO, Wm. T. ROSS, Davis EASTLAND, John R. WILSON, Geo.A. WILSON, Arch YELL and Wm. D. THOMPSON. It says very little of Elk river and mentions only four creeks, Bradshaw, Cane, Mulberry and Swan.

The following post-offices are mentioned: Boons Hill, Cane Creek, Charleston, at the mouth of Bradshaw creek, established in 1819 on the land of David COWAN, Hopewell, established in 1833, Looneyville, established in 1819 on the land of Peter LOONEY, Lynchburg, Mulberry, New Hope and Todd's established in 1833.

Fayetteville has a short notice. Was established in 1809, and incorporated in 1810, population in 1833 about 800; contains two academies, two blacksmiths, one bricklayer, three carpenters, three cabinet makers, two cotton gins, one carding machine, four physicians, two clergymen, three hatters, nine lawyers, one printing office, one painter, one saddler, two shoemakers, three tailors, one tavern, and one wagon maker. It is 30 miles north from Huntsville, 73 miles south from Nashville, and 722 south-west from Washington City. Lat. 35 degrees 10 N., lon. 9 degrees 37 W.

General Notes: Julie Coley provided the following:

I am just in the beginning stages of trying to piece this all together. It makes sense that Mary Armstrongs father is John Kennedy and her mother is Sarah Britton. She had a son named John, a son named William (her grandfather? or possibly the father of her second husband Alexander Kennedy) a daughter named Sarah and a daughter named Mary.

20. Samuel M. McCanless, son of John McCanless and Susanna Farmer, was born about 1786 in , Orange, North Carolina and died about 1829 in , Giles, Tennessee about age 43.

General Notes: According to Craig McCanless in 1997: The second son, Samuel M McC stayed behind in Orange Co. NC until he married Jennett (Jane) Brown Douglass on 10/16/1806. Samuel was born abt 1784 in Orange Co. NC and died in 1829 in Giles Co. TN.

I have John S. McC as their 7th child. After Samuel's death, Jane moved up to live with her brother in Williamson Co for a few years and then returned to Giles Co.

24. Hanson Courtney,19 son of Thomas Courtney and Sarah Hanson, was born on 11 Dec 1792 in , , Maryland11 and died before 1850.

General Notes: So far, we at a stone wall on the ancestry of our Thomas F. Courtney. From later census information we know he and both his parents were born in Maryland. His wife Amanda was born in Kentucky and her parents were both born in Virginia.

Here is my theory:

The 1860 Andrew County, Missouri federal census for Rochester township indicates our Thomas Courtney is a farmer with no real estate and personal property valued at $300. His wife Amanda is also listed. Interestingly, the household immediately prior to Thomas is also a Courtney family headed by Harriet Courtney, born about 1794 in Maryland.

Household #556 is headed by Harriet Courtney, 68, born in Maryland. Also listed is Edward Courtney, 33, born in Maryland, farmer with real estate valued at $2200 and personal property at $125. William Courtney, 26, born in Maryland, farmer with real property valued at $250. Henson (Hanson?) Courtney, 22, farmer with personal property valued at $140, born in Maryland. Charles Courtney, 17, farmer, born (unreadable.)

In all probabilities, these are Thomas' mother and brothers. As further evidence, the 1850 federal census contains:
Harriet Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1794 Maryland
Edward Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1824 Maryland
Lucinda Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1828 Maryland
William Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1830 Maryland
Thomas Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1831 Maryland
Mary Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1835 Maryland
Harison (Hanson?)Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1836 Maryland
Hollis Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1838 Maryland
Charles Courtney Marion, Buchanan, MO abt 1841 Maryland

Let us assume this is true. Now, we find in the Ancestry.com database that a Hanson Courtney married a Harriett Arnold in December 1816 in Hartford County, Maryland. Hanson was born 11 December 1792, making him just about the right age to be the husband of the Harriet Courtney mention in the above 1850 census. Hanson's father was named Thomas and Harriet named two of her sons Hanson and Thomas. Coincidence?

Hanson Courtney is listed in the 1840 federal census in Harrison County, Kentucky with he and his wife between 20 and less than 30 and a son and daughter under 5.

In the 1830 federal census for District 2, Harford County, Maryland, Hanson Courtney is listed with 2 sons and 2 daughters less than 5, a son and daughter between 5-10, two sons between 10-15, and probably he and his wife are between 30-40. The entry following his is Sarah Courtney between 80-90. This is very probably his mother.

Assuming this all is true, then the following genealogy in the Ancestry.com database would apply to our line:

Nathan was granted land in the Province in future Abbeville County south of Spartanburg from 1767, and in 1784 for service performed in the Militia; a British sympathizer would not have been granted government land after the war. There was a Lieutenant Nathaniel Young of the Spartanburg area named as a member of Major Zachariah Gibbs' Loyalist Regiment for the last six months of 1780. Some of the other members of this roster were Captain William Young (a Major in 1782), Captain Benjamin Wofford (he moved north after the War), Private Nicholas Holley (no doubt the ancestor of the Holley families of Giles County Tennessee), George Crawford (who owned land along James Creek, the north west corner of which belonged to John Young [Y1], son of Nathaniel, in 1808; see below), and others known to have homes in the Tyger River-James Creek community. A 22 May 1783 list by Continental Commander Colonel Benjamin Roebuck of the men who sided with the British and who were members of the Spartanburg Regiment shows that William Young, Benjamin Wofford, and Nicholas Holley were alive then, while Nathaniel was dead, having died in the line of duty. In March 1787 his widow, as administrator of Nathaniel's estate, was sued in the Spartanburg County courts by John Langston for Nathaniel's debts. In 1790 Patty was living two doors from Nathaniel's brother Richard, with her children. In 1800 she was not found, so could have remarried or been living in the household of a relative.
Sixty six acres of James Creek- Tyger River land was sold by William Young Senr's grandson John Young [Y1] son of Nathaniel, on 23 December 1808 in which the land was described as being "at the north west corner of a tract of two hundred acres originally granted to George Crawford beginning at said corner on a hickory tree near James Creek." This 200 acres was part of Crawford's land obtained in the 1760s after 1764. Since at most only one generation had gone by before Nathaniel took title and passed it to John, Nathaniel must have obtained the 200 acres from George Crawford himself. It would be very likely that Nathaniel was George Crawford's son-in-law. The given name of "George" in the Young families of James Creek is only found in the name of Nathaniel's grandson, son of Nathaniel Young Jr [Y2]. It should be noted, though, that the new U.S. government systematically "escheated" land from those who fought on the British side during the Revolution. Since George Crawford would have fallen into this category, his property may have been bought in government auctions by his Continental sympathizing neighbors after the war ended. Nathaniel's relatives (Richard Young? William Young Senr?) may have bought George Crawford's escheated land in a government auction and passed it to Nathaniel's children. Or it may have been Nathaniel's and George's land which were both escheated, and bought and then passed back to Nathaniel's heirs. There are no records to show this, but these kind of events were common. Since William Young Senr's will does not mention Nathaniel, Patty, or Nathaniel's children, William may have already provided land for Nathaniel before the will was written, and then there was no need to mention Nathaniel by name in the will. It was common in wills of the pre-20th Century to not provide for the eldest children in the parents' will because the older children had already received their inheritance upon reaching adulthood and/or upon getting married. The 1790 census indicates that there were only six children in Patty's household, but could easily have a seventh who was old enough to have moved from his parents' home by 1790. There are many deed records of the early 19th Century in which a William Young was a witness. It would be expected that Nathaniel would name a son after his father, so it is here assumed that the unexplained William was Nathaniel's eldest child. The seven children of Nathaniel and Patty were-
1.William Young
2.John Young [Y1], b 1774
3.Nathaniel Young [Y2], b 1777
4.Joseph Young [Y3], b 1780-1781
5.Thomas Young [Y4], b Jul 1781
6.girl Young
7.girl Young
See the biography of Captain Isaac Young for possible ties to Nathaniel. The above George Crawford is also listed as a member of those Loyalists who went to Orangeburg, South Carolina with Lieutenant Colonel John H Cruger after the evacuation of Fort Ninety Six, and received six months pay for the latter half of 1780. There were other Crawford men and women listed as Loyalists in South Carolina. In 1768 George Washington, and Captain William Crawford of South Carolina who had accompanied Washington on the expedition against Fort Duquesne in Pennsylvania ten years earlier, set out to buy up large tracts of land in the Pennsylvania Colony. Any relationship between both of these Crawford men is unknown.
The Orange County Virginia Order Book 2, on 24 July 1740 (Page 211), states that Patrick Crawford made oath that he, Ann, James, George, Margaret, and Mary Crawford came from Ireland to Philadelphia, and then came to Virginia Colony. It is not known if there is any connection between the George Crawford just mentioned and the George Crawford of Orangeburg who had land along James Creek in Spartanburg County. There are 11 June 1785 probate records in Abbeville County South Carolina, in which a George Crawford's estate is involved. In these records are named Sarah Crawford (the widow?), Richard Nalley, and Abednego Green as administrators. Appraisers of the estate were Joseph Wofford, Thomas Young, and two others. A Joseph Wofford was a witness to a land purchase between Bezin Holland and wife Mary to Richard Young in Spartanburg County in December 1796; Benjamin Wofford lived close to Richard in 1790. Appraiser Thomas Young may have been the brother of Richard and Nathaniel Young.
In February 1833 the estate of a Joseph Crawford in Abbeville County paid W A Young $2.25. The records named Joseph Crawford's daughter Isabella, a minor in December 1831. W A Young could be the son of Richard Young who was Nathaniel Young's brother. (61,NY,MD,GE,JE,1aeyz)

From Joseph W. Atterbury, Jr, Great Great Grandson of James:
"My great, great grandfather, James Atterbury (Grandfather Jimmie) was either a son or a grandson of the Atterbury who came to America from England. James Atterbury was born in 1758. He lived in South Carolina near Camden during the Revolutionary War and served during that war under Gen. Francis Marion."

"He was present and partook of the noted potato supper in the swamps of SC which consisted solely of sweet potatoes. This potato supper was given considerable notoriety by the British Officer prisoner held by the Americans, who said that a people who could thus subsist and fight were unconquerable."

"Atterbury rode two different horses during that war, one named Red Buck and the other Queen Anne. After the war, he moved to Grayson CO. KY, and in about 1820, moved to Missouri, and settled in Monroe County, Missouri. His wife, Dorcas Wilkerson, came from England.
He died in Monroe CO. MO in 1843, and was buried in the Willis Atterbury family grave yard on the farm 4 miles North of Madison, MO."

"I have never been able to learn the name of the father of grandfather Jimmie Atterbury, but he had SEVEN SONS as follows: Michael; John; Thomas; Charles;, Edward "Neddie"; James (my grandfather Jimmie); and William.

Notes by Lois Earline (Thomas) Branch, Dec 1999:
Much of the Atterberry research material I have is from notes by Paris Loucks, Mary Ash, and Lillian Harmon. If not for these old timers, this family would have remained a mystery for years to come. Lillian spent many, many hours transcribing courthouse records by hand and though her material has been used by other Atterberry researchers, she has never been given the credit she deserves. Though it is many years too late, I have to say "THANK YOU, LILLIAN"
All of her material and that of other researchers will be sent to the Portland Genealogical Forum.
I have spent many years going over all the old timers material and adding to it by courthouse records, family members input, and census records.

James is said to have died in 1796 in Chester CO. SC, but may have died in MO.
He may have married Mary "Molly" Hill, sister of Sarah Hill who married John Atterberry, the brother of James.
There is no proof that James was a son of William and Bridget except for a biography of Greenberry Atterberry in the "Encyclopedia of Missouri History", published in 1901, almost 40 years after Greenberry's death in 1862. This history states that Greenberry was born 1799 in SC. In 1803 he was taken by his family to KY where he lived until 1817. In that year he came to MO. His father is stated to be James Atterberry. (NOTE: If Greenberry was raised by William and Charity lived with her nephew Nathan Atterberry, then evidence points to this James being Greenberry's father. However, some have accepted the theory that Greenberry was the son James and Dorcas Atterberry.

Some records say Dorcas was born in England, some say South Carolina.

She may have been a widow as one record shows her as Dorcas Wilkerson and another says McKinsar.
She had a son named Wilkerson. That shows that her maiden name was most likely Wilkerson.

64. William Young Senr,2,8,9 son of William Young and Unknown, was born from 1730 to 1735 in Probably, , Virginia2,8 and died about Mar 1787 in Probably, Spartanburg, South Carolina2,8 about age 57.

General Notes: The Young Families of Early Giles County, Tennessee, 1986, By East, Ellis, Short, Worsham, Young says this about William Young Senr:

William Young Senr, of the Tyger River area of southeast central Spartanburg County South Carolina must have been born by the early 1730s, considering the birth dates of his known children. Where he was born is unknown, but may have been Virginia. There are inconclusive pieces of evidence that he, and probably some of his sons came to James Creek from Virginia; see Nancy Young [Y7] and Nancy Young [Y5g]. Also, there is a court record from the 18 September 1744 court in King & Queen County Virginia whereby certain citizens petitioned the court not to build a bridge over the Rappahannock and Mattiponi Rivers. Two of these petitioners were Henry Crutcher and John Young. The Crutcher name was a well established name with the Young families of Giles County a century later; see John Crutcher Young [Y;i2] (great grandson of William Senr) and the numerous other descendants named John C Young of the early and middle 19th Century.
William Senr is first found on a Colonial Platt map (Vol. 8, Page 560) of 1764 in which he received 150 acres: "Pursuant to a preceipt directed under the hand and seal of the Honble Egerton Leigh Esqr Surveyor General dated the Sixth day of March 1764 I have measured and laid out unto Willm Young a Plantation or tract of Land in Berkly County containing one hundred and fifty acres situate lying & being on a Branch of Tygar river on the south side not more than ten Inches Deep and about Eight foot wide called Jammys Creek and is Bounded all around on vacant Land, and hath such shape form and marks as the above platt Represents. Certified this 26 day of July 1764. Edwd Musgrove D.S." About the same time he obtained 300 acres nearby, and 100 more acres bounded on the east by "Wm Young Senr " on the west by George Crawford, and bounded on the remaining sides by vacant land. Both of William's tracts were a grant (Grant Book AAA, Page 323) from Governor Charles Graville Montague of the South Carolina Province in which William had to pay the Colonial government 3 shillings sterling, or 4 shillings proclamation money, per 100 acres each following March for two years from 17 February 1767. Also, as part of the grant terms, he had to clear and bring into cultivation three percent of the land each year. Berkeley County, formed in 1683 and later discontinued under that name, became part of Spartanburg County. It should not be confused with the present Berkeley County close to the Atlantic coast.
William left a 1787 will, portions of which are as follows: "In the name of God Amen Whereas I William Young Senr of the state of South Carolina and Spartanburg County Being infirm in Body" ... "will that all my Debts and funeral Charges be Paid" "Thirdly I will and Bequeth that my Land be Equally Divid Betwixt my Two sons Thomas Young and Richd Young. Thomas to have 75 acres Running North and South across the Land and his part Joining his own Land Where he now Dwells and the Lower End to the East 75 acres I give to Richd Joining to Benjamin Wofford Old Place also I will that if Edwd Smith sould Die I Give Mary his wife my Daughter Privilege to come and Live one 25 acres of that Land During her life or Widow hood Lest not to Rent out or Disposs of it Except She wants to Live on And she is not to have any Claim" .,. "also Do Consent and Appoint my sons Thomas and Richard to be the Sole Executors of this my Last Will and Testament. fourthly I Will and Bequeth that all my Moveable Goods be Divided Equally amongst all the Rest of my Children" ... "this 31st Day of March one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven." It was signed and sealed by William Young, and was witnessed by James Creek-Tyger River neighbors Millenton "X" Smith and Thomas "T" Brown (both made their marks).
In his will, William did not mention his son William nor William Senr's late son Nathaniel nor Nathaniel's children. The biggest clue that William Senr had children other than those he named in his will are his words in his will which say "all the Rest of my Children" after he carefully named Thomas, Richard, and Mary. And there are other clues of more children: On 4 April 1795 William Young and his wife Patience, of Laurens County South Carolina, sold to "Thomas Young of Spartanburg County" for (pounds)50 Sterling a 100 acre tract "situate lying and being in Spartanburg County and State aforesaid on a Branch of Tyger River called Jamies Creek Bounded to the East by land of Wm Young Senr, West by land of George Crawford, and all other sides by vacant land at the time of surveying." In this sale to Thomas, it also said William "shall stand siezed of a good sure perfect and indefineable estate of Inheritance in fee simple of and in all the aforesaid plantation or Tract of one Hundred Acres." See the biography of his son Nathaniel Young. On 7 October 1809 Thomas Young sold seventy five acres to Thomas' son William Young. This land was described as "being part of a tract of land containing one hundred fifty acres granted to my father William Young Sen by his Excellency Governor Montague" in February 1767 "on a branch of Tyger called Jameys Creek and the south side of said river." Thomas refers to his father as "Senr," thus implying that there was a son William Young Junr.
Sixty six acres of the same James Creek-Tyger River land was sold by William Young Senr's grandson John Young [Y1], son of Nathaniel, on 23 December 1808 in which the land was described as being "at the northwest corner of a tract of two hundred acres originally granted to George Crawford beginning at said corner on a hickory tree near James Creek." This puts Nathaniel's children next to where William Senr lived.
William's wife remains unknown; she probably died prior to William since he made no provisions for her in his will. He must have died soon after March 1787, because at the time he wrote his will William was "infirm in Body." He probably died at his home in the Tyger River-James Creek area of Spartanburg. County. His probable children were
1. Nathaniel Young, b a1750s
2. Mary Young, b a1750s
3. William Young, b 1750s
4. Thomas Young [Y5], b a1756
5. Richard Young, b c1755 (63,NY,JE,1wyz)

William married someone.

His children were:

32        i.  Nathaniel Young 2,8,9 (born from 1750 to 1759 of 96 District, , South Carolina - died about 1780-1789)

         ii.  Mary Young 2 was born about 1751 in Of, Spartanburg, South Carolina.2

        iii.  William Young 2 was born about 1753 in Of, Spartanburg, South Carolina.2

         iv.  Thomas Young 2 was born before 1756 in Of, Spartanburg, South Carolina.2

          v.  Richard Young 2,8 was born about 1756 in Of, Spartanburg, South Carolina2,8 and died on 14 Nov 1873 in , Spartanburg, South Carolina2,8 about age 117.


80. James A. McCanless, son of James McCanless and Elizabeth, was born about 1734 in New London Twsp., Chester County, Pennsylvania and died about 1784 in , Orange, North Carolina about age 50.

General Notes: According to Craig McCanless in 1997: James was born about 1733 in Chester Co., PA. He married Jane McDowell, daughter of William McDowell and Jane (Singleton) of Chester Co., PA in 1753. In 1767 this James and his family moved to Orange Co., NC to the Little River just north of Hillsboro, NC. He died in 1784 in Orange Co., NC and his wife died in 1805 in Orange Co, NC. They had 7 children.
The oldest was John McCanless born 6/10/1754 in Cheater Co. He moved with his parents to NC in 1767.

According to Donald P. McCanless:

Reference to son is from his father's Will, which states "...my Dearly Beloved Son James McCandlis..."

The spelling of the last name changes on James' will to McCanlis, and also documents that he moved from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. His Will states:

In the name of God amen the 28th Day of December, in the Year of our Lord on thousand Seven hundred and eighty three. I James McCanlis of the County of Orange and State of North Carolina being Sick and weak in body, But of Perfect mind and memory thanks be given unto God therefore Calling unto mind the mortality of my body and knowing that it is for all men once to die. Do make and Ordain this my last Will and Testament, and as for my Soul I give into the hands of God that give it, and my body I recommend to the earth to be buried in a Christian like and Divine manner at the Discretion of my Executors. Nothing doubting but at the General Resurrection, I shall receive the same again by the mighty Power of God And as touching such Worldly Estate wherewith it hath Pleased God to bless me with in this life, I give, Devise, and Dispose of the same in the following manner and form. Impremise. It is my Will and I do Order in the first place that all my Just Debts and Funeral Charges be paid and Sattisfied. Item. I Will and bequeath to my beloved wife Jane, all my Lands and moveables and Stock of every kind, during her life, and then to be Divided amongst my Children, to Witt, John Cammons, Robert Lindsey, Elizabeth, John, James, David & William McCanlis, as she thinks Proper, and I appoint this my Last Will and Testament and I appoint my beloved wife, and my Son David to be my Executors. Given under my hand and Seal the day and Year first above Written.

120. William Atterberry 2,16,97,98 was born about 1710 in , , , England2,16 and died about 1768 in Loudoun County, Virginia2,16 about age 58.

General Notes: The following was obtained from the Ancestry.com database of Ray Anderson <rander3804@aol.com>

William was a laborer in parish of St. James, Liberty of Westminster, London, England. Transported from Newgate Prison for stealing 5 yards of Linsey Woolsey, to America in April 1733 on the ship "PATAPSCO MERCHANT". Landed in Annapolis. He lived in Frederick County and Loudoun County Virginia. He owned or worked at Prince Spring Plantation in Prince George's County, MD. The Prince Spring Plantation was sold in 1754.


The following is available at http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/b/r/a/James-E-Branch/GENE10-0001.html

There are many spellings for the name Atterberry. My family uses Attebury, others use Atterbury; Atteberry; Atterberry; Arterbury; Arterberry; Atteberry; Atteborough, etc.

In this genealogy, I (James E. and Lois E. (Thomas) Branch) have used Atterberry. As I've said many times, a record keeper or census taker's only claim to fame was that they could read and write, nobody ever said they could spell.

This genealogy is taken from many researchers and I hope that I have tried to give them credit under their names. Much of this family history was done by Lillian B. Harmon (see her under Gertrude Lillian Baker). The researchers of this family owe her many thanks, and I know she would love to see her work on the Internet. I cannot say that there are no mistakes, but publish hers and others research in hopes that it will help others.

William Atterberry, a laborer from the Parish of St. James, Liberty, Westminster, Middlesex, England was tried on 31 January 1732. "He was committed by Ol. Lambert Esquire, on oath of Frederick Humble for stealing out of the shop of George Cole som stuff, five yards of Linsey Woolsey, worth 3 shillings" (spelled as written). William was deported to America from Newgate Prison via the ship "Patapscoe Merchant" which was boarded on 17 April 1733 by 77 persons. The captain was Darby Lux, and the destination was not given. (At that time Maryland was the most popular port and that is probably where they landed.)

William was a prisoner at Newgate Prison in the reign of George II. At that time many people living in England were very poor and many of them committed small crimes so they could be sent to America where they could start a new life and make a living.

In 1746, William was residing in Maryland with his family on the land he owned. The plantation was called "Prince Spring Plantation", it consisted of 50 acres and was located "on the north side of the White Marsh, being a draught of the Eastern Branch of Potomack River"

William sold his land on 16 August 1754 to John Riddle Jr. for sum of three thousand pounds of tobacco. (The tobacco in those days were used in the same way we use currency today.)

At the same time he sold his land, his wife Sarah "gave up her right of dower of the land."

William and Sarah left Prince George County, Maryland and moved just across the Potomack River to Loudoun County, Virginia, where in 1760 and 1761 they are listed living next door to their son, Michael Attebury.

The Tithables List, Loudoun County, Virginia, 1769 does not list William, which indicates that he had probably passed away. It does include Sarah and their son Edward.

Sarah Atterberry died ca 1770, Loudoun County, VA.

Now comes family tradition to confuse things and make you wonder if Sarah was William's second wife.

This story has been passed down through several branches of the Atterberry family, namely: J. H. Attebury; Paris Loucks; Mrs. Roberta Jones Skinner; Sarah M. Wallace; R. LaMon; Lillian B. Harmon; Joseph W. Attebury, Jr.; and Mary Ash.

"The father of the brothers was a wealthy land owner, and very loyal to the crown. Then the dissatisfactions began to materialize. I suppose that this situation increased until there was a break in his health. Anyway, he sent the boys out one morning to round up the horses. Upon the return of one of them, the father met him at the door and said: "Me and the devil have killed your mother". Upon investigating the boys found their mother's body rolled under the bed. Upon this the father tried to escape, but the boys caught him and held him for the authorities. He was tried, found to be insane, and released."

"I have often wondered if this, if true, did not cause the brothers to migrate to South Carolina and forget the unhappy incident. It could be a cause for their restlessness and separation to a degree"....signed by Joseph W. Attebury, Jr.

The Tithables List of 1770 gives William, Edward and Thomas. All said to be sons of William and Sarah. (No proof found)

The 1790 Census of South Carolina lists nine different Attebury families with various spellings: Nathaniel Aturburry, Charles Aturburry, Edward Aturburry, John Atterburry, Michael Arterberry, James Aturburry, Thomas Aturbury, William Aturburry, and Richard Aturbury.

Because of the proximity and the migrations of these families, it has been assumed that the above list of Atterberrys were all brothers and sons of William Atterberry Sr.

Mary Ash, who died 1905 at the age of 100 years, stated there were only seven sons of William: Michael; John; Thomas; Charles; James; William; and Edward, whom she called Neddie. Paris Loucks, after concluding his research, added Richard and Nathan.

Many years of research has been done on the Atterberry family by many different members of the family. In my possession are the many letters written by Lillian Harmon, Paris Loucks, Sarah M. Wallace and others. I have poured over them time and time again trying to unravel the mystery of our ancestors, and have included in this genealogy my own research, but they are still a mystery to me.....Lois Earline (Thomas) Branch, Jan 2, 2000, Portland, Oregon

General Notes: The Young Families of Early Giles County, Tennessee, 1986, By East, Ellis, Short, Worsham, Young, describes our Young lineage from William Young up through my great grandfather, John Archie Young. I found this text while on a visit to Memphis in 1993 when I visited the Tennessee Genealogical Society. Here is the introduction of the book:

lNTRODUCTlON

There were over a dozen different Young settlers in pre-1830 Giles County and the surrounding area. Most Young descendants contained in this book descend from the Youngs of Bradshaw Creek in Giles County Tenessee, (in today's civil district 10) or their close cousins in Maury County. there were other Young pioneers in Maury and HickmanCounties (from Pennsylvania and from Kentucky) who are not listed herein.

There were twelve researchers who contributed information for this book. Each had gathered information on his own for various reasons, most being curiosity in his or her ancestry and the love of solving a puzzle in which each researcher was a part. Flora East of Madera, California and Louise Young of Tyronza, Arkansas had in the late 1960s supplied John Young with the information which took his search to Giles County, and in April 1981 he made contact with cousin Gerald Young, and in June with another cousin, Martha Ann Young, both of Giles County. From these two contacts other cousins were reached who freely gave their information to this Young biography; as time went on, seven more contributed heavily to the Young Family information.

Credit for most of the South Carlina research goes to Neva Fern Young of Temple, Texas, with much of her earlier information coming from Virginia Short of Waco; Jackie Ellis of Walnut Creek, California supplied the Willeford information and much South Carolina Young information; Juanita Elllis of Dallas, Texas supplied much of the information on a branch of the Youngs who moved to Texas; Gerald Young, Martha Young, and George Worsham of Giles County tirelessly phoned, wrote, and visited many cousins, graveyards, and the Giles County courthouse for more data; and Geraldine Young of Wellsville, Ohio wrote to many of the 20th Century cousins. Contributions from John Young were primarily Tennessee census reading and hundreds of hours in front of a keyboard. No one person is responsible for this project; it was a joint effort which could not have been accomplished without all eleven, plus the many more not named on this page who provided twigs and branches to the Family Forest. The Giles County Historical Society must also be commended; their publications provided quite a bit of information contained herein.

This book, at first glance, would normally be called a Genealogy by most. But since there are Youngs who have no obvious ties to others within these pages, a better description would be to call it Kinology. Keep in mind than information on living cousins was mostly gathered over a five year period, so some of it can easily be out of date by now; children may have married, old folks may have died, etc.

Over the past five years we exchanged information by letter. But as the Young names began to pile up, (over 3,000 at last count, not counting names of spouses and in-laws), a computer with a word processor was used. If anyone would prefer the information contained in this book on 5.25 inch computer diskettes (IBM format), contact John Young. Even with these tools, undreamed of just two generations ago, there will no doubt be mis- takes and omissions. That is inevitable in a venture of this size, But fortunately, mistakes can by corrected. Any additions, and/or corrections, and requests should be addressed to John Young, 6513 N San Pablo, Fresno CA 93704. Telephone (209) 431-8559. Although this book will probably not have a second (i.e., updated) printing, corrections and additions will be added to our data files. For those who may need updated information only or just certain names, contact the source person who has generally done the research on that line, or contact John Young.

The following is what the text has to say about the earliest Young in our line:

William Young, brother of George Young of Virginia and brother of Thomas Young of North Carolina, lived in Pennsylvania. He probably had sons-
a. Thomas Young Sr, b a1730; see his biography.
b. William Young, b 1740s; see his biography.
c. Jesse Young, left a 1799 will which was recorded in Union County, South Carolina in 1807.
d. Christopher Young was an adult in 1786; in that year there was a land transaction between him and Colonel Thomas Brandon. (MM,JE)

The Young Families of Early Giles County Tennessee is available on LDS microfilm 1421702, Item 15. John E. Young gives all permission to photocopy and duplicate the book in anyt way seen fit.

In 1996 Shirley Gay of Tucson, AZ corresponded with me about possible common Young ancestors. In the course of the exchange, Shirley provided me an updated version of The Young Families of Early Giles County on disk. She indicated she had not been successful in contacting John Young in Fresno but had met a Jean Burns Cosby while she was in Pulaski in May. Ms. Cosby had provided her a copy of the updated text.

Shirley Gay descends from William C. Young's youngest daughter Elizabeth, born 1854 in Pulaski, Giles County, Tennessee.

This updated text contains significant additional information about my personal Young ancestry. The original text contained 263 pages. The updated text contains 463 pages.

William married someone.

His children were:

          i.  Thomas Young 2,8 was born before 1730 in Probably, IN, England.2,8

64       ii.  William Young Senr 2,8,9 (born in 1730-1735 in Probably, , Virginia - died about Mar 1787 in Probably, Spartanburg, South Carolina)


160. James McCanless was born about 1680 in Ulster, , Ireland and died about 1754 in New London Twsp., Chester County, Pennsylvania about age 74.

General Notes: According to Craig McCanless, in 1997: The first McCanless that I have is James McC. I feel that he was born about 1680 in Northern Ireland. I first find him on the 1720 tax list of Chester Co., PA and stays on that list until his death in 1754. In his will written in 1753 he refers to himself as being of sound mind but extremely old and feeble of body. I have to think that that would be at least 70 years old even back then. All that I know of his wife is that her name was Elizabeth and she died between 1754 and 1767.

They had three children. Two daughters who both married Keltons, and one son, James who was born about 1733 in Chester Co., PA.

From: "Donald P. McCanless" <dpm@voicenet.com> on February 15, 1998:

Notes for JAMES MCCANDLIS:
McCandlis spelling is from his Last Will and Testament. It is this Will which tells us his wife's name. It also states the name of one son and one daughter, and mentions another son-in-law which implies the existence of a second daughter, but no name is mentioned for her.

His last Will states:

Nr. 1073:
...
Barbara Yager married Peter Clore. Her birth year is given as 1730, and his is thought to be in the years just before that. Peter died in 1763, and shortly thereafter Barbara Yager Clore married Philip Chelf. In 1768, and in 1770, the couple were sponsors for children of Michael Yager (her brother), and his wife, Elizabeth (Manspiel). These are the earliest records indicating Philip was in Culpeper County. Communicant lists start in 1775, and the couple appears there that year as Philip Zelf and his wife Barbara. In 1776 they appear as Philip Delp and wife Barbara. In 1778 they appear as Philip Delfe and wife Barbara. This shows the difficulty that even German writers had with the name.

The name Barbara Chelf appears earlier than this, for the baptismal register gives Barbara Chelf as a sponsor at the baptism of Margaretha Krickler (Crigler) in 1759. This is strange, as Barbara Yager Clore had not married Philip Chelf by this date. Her husband, Peter Clore, had not even died yet. Apparently, the listing of her at this date is a deliberate action that was made when the baptismal register was rewritten in 1775. There is ample evidence that the baptismal register was rewritten at this date. There is also a Barbara Chelf in 1764, but it cannot be told whether this was before or after Barbara's marriage to Philip, but probably she was married to Philip by then.

If Barbara was born in 1730, she was about 33 when Peter Clore died. I am of the opinion that most remarriages were to partners of a similar age. It would seem to me to be very likely that Peter Clore had been married before his marriage to Barbara. If so, there is a possibility that he had children of his own, from another, previous wife. In the next note I will examine some evidence for this, and try to identify one of the children.
Could the Barbara Chelf of 1759 and 1764 have been a first wife of Philip Chelf? Perhaps, but not very likely. The explanation I gave above is much more likely.
(19 Jan 01)
Nr. 1074:
Philip Chelf and Barbara Chelf were baptismal sponsors for Michael (in 1768), a son of Barbara’s brother, Michael Yager. In 1770, Philip alone was a sponsor for Hanna, a daughter of Michael Yager and his wife Elizabeth Manspiel. On one more occasion in 1779, Philip was a sponsor, and this was for Johannes Böhme (later known as Beemon), the son of Daniel Böhme and his wife Nancy. Not a lot is known about Daniel and Nancy, but Johannes, their second child, of what was to be several, was born in 1779. Apparently, Nancy was a young woman. If she were about twenty, then she had been born in 1759.

My thought is that Nancy was a daughter of Philip Chelf, by Philip’s first, unknown, wife. Let’s look around at the evidence for or against this idea.
Barbara Yager’s family by Peter Clore included six children:

Adam, born ca 1748,
Solomon, born ca 1750,
Delilah, born ca 1750, who married Zacharias Broyles,
Moses, born ca 1756,
Susanna, born ca 1758, who married Daniel Railsback, and
Elizabeth, who became the first wife of Herman Wayman

Let’s look at more of the sponsors for the children of Daniel Böhme and Nancy ?. At the birth of their first born, Susanna, one sponsor was Delilia Broyles (see above). As mentioned above, Philip Chelf was a sponsor at the baptism of the second child Johannes. For the fourth child, who was Joshua, two of the sponsors were Herman Wayman and his wife (see above). At the baptism of Catharina, the fourth child, two sponsors are Johannes Yager and Margaret (Yager) Weaver. For Nancy, the fifth child, two of the sponsors have the name Yager. For Regina, the next, three of the sponsors have the name Yager. Remember that Barbara was born a Yager. For the next three there is little information in the sponsors.

At least two of the sponsors were directly connected to the family of Barbara Yager Clore. I believe this came about because Philip Chelf had children, or at least a child, which certainly included Nancy. Nancy was raised in the new home of Philip and Barbara, so that we had his, hers, and theirs. Nancy was close to her step-siblings, whom she chose to be sponsors at the birth of her children.

Nr. 245: Whom Did Adam Yager Marry?

Adam Yager was the son of Nicholas Yager. Except for the possibility that Adam's sister Mary did live and have heirs, all of the descendants of Nicholas Jäger are through Adam. Adam is said to have married Susannah Kabler, the sister of Frederick Kabler. The last point is quoted very widely by descendants and by historians. However, evidence for this is unknown (to me). Let's examine pro and con points for this purported marriage.

AGAINST: Fred Zimmerman, in his research into the German church records, found the birth record for Frederick (Hans Friedrich) Kappler. but evidence on other family members is extremely poor. It is not clear why this is so. Frederick Kappler called on Christoph Zimmermann to be a sponsor (godfather) for Kappler's son, Christoph. This tie between the Kabler and Zimmerman families continued in Virginia as these were two of the very few families who lived in the Mt. Pony area. Also, both men were coopers. No where in the church records in Germany does Susannah appear. Because the Kabler and Zimmerman families were associated in Germany and later in Virginia, it seems that the right families have been found.

Before looking at one piece of positive evidence, a short digression on Mt. Pony is warranted. When some of the Germans moved to the Robinson River area, a few of them moved to a distinctly different area, the Mt. Pony region. Most historians had failed to recognize there was a geographical difference which was significant. In my own research, I noted the difference and plotted some of the land.

FOR: Adam Yager lived in the Mt. Pony area for more than ten years. He had one hundred acres on the southern slope of Mt. Pony not far from the tract that Frederick Kabler owned. Adam's father, Nicholas, had moved to the Robinson River area. It seems likely that Adam lived in the Mt. Pony area, because his wife would be near to her family. This, in itself, does not make her a Kabler. The people, though, who had been calling Adam's wife a Kabler had not realized that Adam was living apart from his father. They failed to recognize that geography did support them (though it was not proof). Perhaps Susannah was named as a Kabler in handed-down family lore and the source of the information has been lost. In short, the idea that Adam Yager married Susannah Kabler is supported by geography but this is very weak evidence.

It pains me to say that Susannah Kabler was Adam Yager's wife because the evidence is practically nonexistent.

Mt. Pony has been the news recently. During the cold war, the Federal Reserve Board dug out an underground bunker in Mt. Pony as a haven for federal officials in case there was an atomic attack. With the thaw, it has been decided to discontinue the use of it.

One other person who a candidate for Second Colony membership is Nicholas Yager, and he came from the west side of the Rhine River, in the State which, today, we would call the Palatinate. He was living in the very small village of Falkenstein, which is about twelve miles north of Kaiserlautern.

Nr. 1063:

When one studies the Carpenter and Yager families in the third quarter, possibly the fourth quarter also, of the eighteenth century, one must notice the number of times that the Carpenter family members call on the Yager family members to be sponsors, and vice versa. We know of no other families who were relatives to both of these families. We know of no marriages between the Carpenter and Yager families in the first three generations or so.

The head of the YAGER family is Nicholas, who married Anna Maria Sieber, and later Susanna Clore Weaver Crigler. Nicholas has one son, Adam, who is said to have married Susanna Kabler, though solid proof is needed for this, and one daughter, Mary, of whom there is no further record.

RCL Note: The Germanna History Notes indicates Nicholas's wife as Anna Maria Sieber. However, the LDS Germany IGI has 16 entries for Nicholas Yager with wife Mary being the mother of Adam Yager, about half have Mary Wilhoit. Only one entry in this IGI has Anna Maria Sieger as the mother.
