Here is an example of how our ancestors did their best to make life confusing for any of their genealogy descendents. My gggg-grandfather, Evan Young, married Elizabeth Carson in 1817 in Fallowfield Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. Evan had a brother by the name of James (which is also his father, my ggggg-grandfather's, name). James also married an Elizabeth Carson from another family in 1817 also in Fallowfield Township. One of the Elizabeths died in 1868 and the other in 1868 or 1869.
