Family Genealogy
Thursday, January 04, 2007
 

Deeds can tell you a lot. When I first began researching the John S. Young family I found that they had lived in Cicero County, Indiana for about ten years. I just assumed that they had moved there from Wayne County, bought a farm and remained there until they left for Iowa. As I started locating deeds I found it was not quite as simple. First of all I found that they had lived in Hamilton County for approximately a year between their living in Wayne and Tipton Counties. Then I found that they had lived in three different places in their ten years in Tipton County. They had first lived on a farm, second in the city of Tipton, and third on the outskirts of the city. Also I found that there was a very close relationship between John and his family and his sister and her husband Moses Parker. For part of that decade the Parker family lived next to and on a city lot owned by John. The final move to the farm on the outskirts of the city was a joint venture between the two families where both husbands co-signed the deed. The deed is for the city lots that John sold in 1861.
