In the last entry I mentioned that my ggg-grandmother Mary Young had the unusual middle names of Burgess Carson. In referring to or signing her name she would use Mary B.C. Young. I thought that I would mention more about the Burgess and Carson names. The picture shows an ancestry chart for Mary Young through her g-grandparents. At the top of the chart is Thomas Carson (from Ulster County, Ireland) and his wife Mary Smith. They both were born in the early 1740's. They settled in Fallowfield Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. He died in 1816 and she must have preceded him since there is no mention of her in his will. Basil Burgess was born in Maryland in 1741 and died in 1786 also in Maryland. His wife Anne Smith died in 1803 in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. After Basil died the family evidently traveled to Fayette County which is next to Washington County.
