Family Genealogy

Living within 10-15 miles of the two county seats where my Young ancestors lived from 1850 - 1870 allowed me access to quite a few records. While searching through a list of marriage certificates I came across one for a Dinah P. Young. I didn't give it much heed since I had never heard of her. I then remembered there was an earlier Young ancestor who had married a Dinah Phillips. I found Dinah P. Young, her husband, and her children in the 1850 census but it really didn't help me identify her as a member of my Young family. It wasn't untill later on when I was searching deeds that I came across several deeds where the Young children were selling property left to them by their mother. One of the shares of property had been left to the children of Dinah Phillips indicating that she had to be the daughter of the Young family I had been researching. Also having her marriage date helps date when her parents, Evan and Elizabeth Young, had moved to Hamilton County. They were living in another county according to the 1840 census. Dinah was married in September 1847. Evan and Elizabeth were most likely living in Hamilton County before 1847.
