Another one of my 6th Great Grandfathers is Hercules Young who lived in the same township (and close enough probably to be called a neighbor) to Thomas Carson from the previous entry.  I have been unable to find when Hercules died but I believe I have narrowed it down.  In 1783 on a tax rate (list) his name is mentioned (the picture) but his name isn't mentioned on the 1786 tax list but Silas Young and John Young are mentioned who are the names Hercules's two younger sons.  I believe that Hercules died sometime between 1783 and and 1786 and that his two younger sons, Silas and John, had taken over his farm which would account for why their names were on the 1786 tax list but not the 1783 tax list.
