Family Genealogy
Tuesday, December 12, 2006
 

My gggg-grandfather Evan Young died sometime between the 1850 census and the 1860 census but I have been unable to determine the actual date. I was able to narrow this down to between 1854 and 1860 by locating some unusual information on a marriage license. One of his daughters Anna married Reuben Bennett. I was able to locate the marriage license along with about four or five others from the same family. Marriage licenses are pretty straight forward giving basically just names and dates. But on Anna and Reuben's license (which was issued at the end of the 1853) there was more than just names. There was a statement on the license where Evan was giving his permission for the marriage. He had to still be alive at that time.
