My second surprise involved John and Mary Young
themselves. While searching through deeds in the court house I found a deed where they had sold their farm. As I read it I found a clause where they sold one acre to the County to construct a school on it. After checking the location on the deed and locating it on a plat map I went in search of where the farm had been. I found the location of their farm but to my amazement there on one well kept acre of land was a marker dedicated to my ancestors John and Mary Young for contributing the land for the school (it had been long torn down). The marker had been donated by ex-students that had gone to that school.
