This is the tombstone for Jacob Israel Young, his wife, and two of his daughters. It is found in the Elwood (my hometown) Cemetery. I believe that he is the cousin of my ggg-grandparents John S. and Mary B.C. Young (all their fathers -Evan, Phineas, and Jacob- were brothers). It appears that the three brothers along with a sister (Sarah) were all living in Dublin, Wayne County, Indiana in the 1820's. Jacob married Rachel Pearsey and moved to Rush County. Sometime in the early 1850's Jacob Israel who was nearing twenty left his family to go live with John and Mary in Tipton County. Here he met Mariah Webbert whose family was one John and Mary's neighbors. They were married in 1854. After a few years in Hamilton County they returned to Tipton County where they became a permanent resident.
