Family Genealogy
Thursday, November 30, 2006
 

A very exciting part of genealogy is finding something totally by surprize. This is happened to me twice and only ten miles from my house. I have one family, John S. and Mary B.C. Young, who lived in the town next to mine from 1850-1861. One day while looking through a book of cemetery records for someone else in the town library I came across the name of Elgy Evan Young. I kind of ignored it until I saw the name of the parents. They were John S. and Mary B.C. Young. I immediately went to the cemetery and found the marker. The child died in December 1860. In the 1860 census for the John Young family the name was either written down wrong or the handwriting of the census worker made Elgy E. look like Eliza J. In my next blog I will tell you about the second surprize which also involves this family.
