Notes for ANDREW YOUNG:|
"OUR YOUNG FAMILY IN AMERICA"
Reference: 331 ANDREW YOUNG
Was born in 1790 in Morris County, New Jersey. The birth date is fixed by the inscription on his gravestone in the cemetery at Galena, Ohio. He died in 1851, age 61 years. He was living, in 1810, in the Kingston District of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. He had a sister between 16 and 26 years of age in 1810 (United States Census, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania) who has not been identified. She perhaps was Polly Carver who was living in Kingston, Pennsylvania, in 1851, when Andrew made his will, and to whom he left, after the death of his wife, two thirds of the estate. Andrew left his wife, Polly, "for life or until she remarries, the plantation of 50 acres on which we live." The following record at Delaware, 0hio may relate to Andrew and his wife: "March 20 1845, Andrew Young married Mary Williams." The list of Andrew's heirs indicates that he had no children. On March 4 1845, Andrew bought and sold a lot to Alpheus and Jane Bigelow. No wife signed the deed.
Andrew's will, filed at Delaware, Ohio, "was produced October 21 1851." The Executors were Sammie Carver and George W. Wells. With the will, there is an accompanying paper which reads, "On February 15 1854, Geo. W. Wells petitions for the sale of certain real estate, which was sold on March 18 1854, on behalf of the following respondents." It is noted that "Polly Nicholls owns in her own right a part of the real estate and that the sale is subject to her dower." This explains Andrew's disposition of only two-thirds of the estate. The respondents: Polly and Charles Scovell; Polly Carver; Polly and Charles Nicholls; Betty and Henry Sherman; Sarah J. Fuller; Elizabeth and Eliphaz Bigelow; Hugh Lorenzo Edwards; Elijah Edwards; Andrew Edwards; Sarah Leonard; Eli Edwards; Sally Lindenberg; Loretta Sharp; Louisa Sharp; William Landon; Jabeth Edwards; Norinda Edwards.
The 1840 United States Census show Morgan Young, age 89, living with his son, Andrew, in Sunbury, Ohio. Morgan served in the Revolution under Captain Zopher Carver. The United States Census of 1800 for Luzerne County, Pennsylvania lists the following the following allied families of Andrew: Samuel Carver, Nathaniel Landon, John Leonard and Oliver Bigelow. Members of these families moved to Delaware County Ohio, as did Andrew Young. Benjamin and Mary Nichols of New Jersey had a son Charles.
