Phineas/Pheneas Young is one of my gggg-grandfathers. He is the father of John Sargood Young. All I had about him was the information concerning him from the 1830 census (the picture) and the 1840 census. Several days ago I came across an article about Phineas from the Washington Observer (I believe that is the correct name of the newspaper) from Monday Novemeber 28, 1825. It stated "Sheriff's sale December 19, 1825 - Phineas Young, 50 acres of land in Fallowfield Township about 30 which is cleared 2 of meadow, and orchard of nearly 100 trees, a sugar camp, and coal bank. Small log house one story high. Also defendant's interest in fulling mill, being the 1/4 adjoining lands of Henry Shepler and others. Taken at suits of Thomas A. McGrew." The date of the article (December, 1825) is interesting and raises questions in that his son John Sargood Young was born in Ohio in 1824 and the family was living in Indiana in 1830.
