The Young Family

My Young family starts with Charles Young, Sr. born 1767 in Frederick Co., Virginia, who settled in Mifflin Township, Richland Co., Ohio, around 1815. He married Hester Ford and had 13 children.

At this time, we are stuck! Unable to locate the parents of Charles Young, Sr. We do know that he had two brothers, Henry (born abt 1758) and John T. Young. If you have any information on this family and the potential ancestry of Charles Young, it would be most appreciated!

I am descended through:
Charles Young (1767) & Hester Ford

George Young & Sarah Armstrong

William Gaylord Young (1835) & Alice Tuthill

Charles Edgard Young (1877) & Orabel Brown
My great-grandparents

William Gaylord Young

Excerpt from “History of Napa and Lake Counties” 1881

“[William G. Young] was born in Richland County, Ohio, August 6, 1835. His father died when he was six years of age, and the young boy had very soon to assume the duties of superintendent of the farm. He remained at his birth place until 1857, when he went to Illinois, where he followed teaching until the spring of 1862. He then made a trip to Pike’s Peak and returned in the fall. In July, 1861, he enlisted in Company “H,” 27th Regiment, Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and served about eleven months, when he was wounded, and in consequence received his discharge. He then went to Ohio, where he remained one year. He then went to Randolph County, Illinois, where he engaged in mercantile pursuits, which he followed until 1873, when he disposed of his interests. In 1875 he came to California and located in Kelseyville, where he engaged in merchandising, which he followed until May, 1880, when he disposed of his business to Messrs. Clendenin Brothers. [Since] then he has been engaged in farming and wood growing. He owns about four hundred acres of land, located in Big Valley, near Kelseyville. He was married, October 25, 1866, to Miss Alice O. Tuthill, a native of Illinois. They have three living children: Orrie E., Willard T., and Charles. They have lost two: Etta A. and Zoe. “
