     John Archibald Young per Leggitt: "Source: Giles County Lineage Charts, Young Master Chart, page 724.

Settled Bradshaw, Giles Co. TN ca 1809.

The Young Families of Early Giles County has the following:

John Young [Y1], son of Nathaniel Young of the future Spartanburg County South Carolina, was born in 1774 in the area along the intersection of James Creek and Tyger River. His father died when John was but a boy of about 9, leaving John, his three or four brothers, possibly two sisters, and his mother Patty ___. In 1790 the family was living in the part of the county where the Tyger River crosses the Spartanburg-Union County line. They lived in the James Creek Tyger River neighborhood close to Nathaniel's brother Richard Young. As time went on, John owned land previously held by George Crawford, land next to
his grandfather William Young's land. He married and had the first of his ten children there. His wife was Nancy Smith, one of many children of Buckner Smith and Dianna ____ of nearby Dutchman's Creek. February 1792 deed records (Book F, Page 39) show that Buckner and Dianna sold a 127 acre plantation on Cain Creek near Tyger River to a Benjamin Grist, and in 1795 Buckner bought 126 acres along Dutchman's Creek, which was near the neighborhood of Nathaniel and Richard Young at James Creek. Therefore, John lived a short walk to Buckner's home for a few years prior to when he and Dianna were married.
This couple belonged to the Tyger River Baptist Church (also called Friendship) at the turn of the 19th Century, as did many other local people wh are later found in Giles County Tennessee. John and Nancy were probably married there about 1193. This pioneer church was located sixteen miles south east of the town of Spartanburg (almost where the present town of Glenn Springs is today), and about five miles north of where John and Nancy had thei home. Nancy was born in 1776, so was about 17 at the time, a common age for a young woman to be married in those days.
On 23 December 1808 John sold his small farm along James Creek to his brother-in-law Archibald Smith. This sale was witnessed by John Holley (probably the husband of John's niece Mary T Young [Y4a]) and by John's father-in-law Buckner Smith. Within a few weeks of this sale, John, Nancy, an their four sons end three daughters moved to Bradshaw Creek in eastern Giles County Tennessee. In March 1812 Archibald Smith sold the farm and also moved to the plush countryside of Giles County, living next door and east of John and Nancy; witnesses of this sale were Richard Young and William Young. Richard was John's uncle, and William was either a cousin or a brother. Although John and family arrived in Giles County in early 1809, there is no record of him owning any land there until 22 February 1814 when he bought 171 acres along Bradshaw Creek from Sanuel Polk of Maury County. And in October 1816 John bought 100 acres along the headwaters of Bradshaw Creek, from Polk, land next to the first purchase. This is today at Beech Hill; the headwaters of Bradshaw Creek," called Little Bradshaw Creek today, runs just west of the home he build there between 1814 and 1816. (See the large picture of Mary Lou "Cissy" Young [Yli3b] at the front of this book.) A witness of the first deed was Nathaniel Young, and the second deed was witnessed by John Young [Ylb], son of John and Nancy. Because John's brother Nathaniel was living nearby in Rlaury County, it is not known whether witness Nathaniel Young was John's son or brother.
In 1819 Nancy died and was buried in Beech Hill Cemetery just up the hill and west of their home (which was built about 1815, and was still being lived in 170 years later). John then married Mrs Nancy Buchanan, who had a daughter, Mrs Frances T Craven, wife of John Craven. John and Nancy wer members of the United Baptist Church of Christ in Giles County, For at least 15 years prior to his death on 17 October 1838, John was a local Justice of the peace. He is buried in Beech Hill Cemetery next to Nancy Smith, the mothe of his ten children. These children were-
a. Nathaniel Young, b c1794
b. John Young Jr, b 1795
c. Buckner K Young, b 1800
d. Rebecca Young, b c1803
e. Spencer Young, b 22 Nov 1804
f. Dianna Young, b c1809
g, Elizabeth Young, b c1811
h. Martha Young, b 1812
i. Archibald Smith Young, b 1814
j. Nancy Young, b 1816
The Tyger River Baptist Church was closely affiliated with Boiling Spring Baptist Church, which was in Union County close to the home of Major Thomas Young. Families of the Tyger River Church from 1801 to 1804 who were also found in Tennessee counties within a few years were: Beard, Golightly, Meadows, Moore, Smith, Willeford, Willis, and Young (John and wife Nancy Smith).
Sixty six acres of the James Creek-Tyger River land was sold by William Young Senr's grandson John Young [Y1], son of Nathaniel, on 23 December 1808 in which the land was described as being "at the northwest corner of a tract of two hundred acres originally granted to George Crawford beginning at said corner on a hickory tree near James Creek." This puts Nathaniel's children next to where William Senr lived.
Buckner Smith, John's father-in-law, and Buckner's wife Diana probably moved to Bradshaw with their son Archibald Smith about 1812. A Charle Moore, a pioneer of Scotch-Irish descent, moved to Spartanburg County from Pennsylvania about 1763 and built his log home 8 miles southeast of the presen town of Spartanburg. It would be reasonable to assume that this Charles Moore was the ancestor of most, if not all of the Moores of Spartanburg County into the early 19th Century.

     GAV-7.

William Young I per Leggitt: "The Young Families of Early Giles County, Tennessee, 1986, By East, Ellis, Short, Worsham, Young says this about William Young Senr:

William Young Senr, of the Tyger River area of southeast central Spartanburg County South Carolina must have been born by the early 1730s, considering the birth dates of his known children. Where he was born is unknown, but may have been Virginia. There are inconclusive pieces of evidence that he, and probably some of his sons came to James Creek from Virginia; see Nancy Young [Y7] and Nancy Young [Y5g]. Also, there is a court record from the 18 September 1744 court in King & Queen County Virginia whereby certain citizens petitioned the court not to build a bridge over the Rappahannock and Mattiponi Rivers. Two of these petitioners were Henry Crutcher and John Young. The Crutcher name was a well established name with the Young families of Giles County a century later; see John Crutcher Young [Y;i2] (great grandson of William Senr) and the numerous other descendants named John C Young of the early and middle 19th Century.
William Senr is first found on a Colonial Platt map (Vol. 8, Page 560) of 1764 in which he received 150 acres: "Pursuant to a preceipt directed under the hand and seal of the Honble Egerton Leigh Esqr Surveyor General dated the Sixth day of March 1764 I have measured and laid out unto Willm Young a Plantation or tract of Land in Berkly County containing one hundred and fifty acres situate lying & being on a Branch of Tygar river on the south side not more than ten Inches Deep and about Eight foot wide called Jammys Creek and is Bounded all around on vacant Land, and hath such shape form and marks as the above platt Represents. Certified this 26 day of July 1764. Edwd Musgrove D.S." About the same time he obtained 300 acres nearby, and 100 more acres bounded on the east by "Wm Young Senr " on the west by George Crawford, and bounded on the remaining sides by vacant land. Both of William's tracts were a grant (Grant Book AAA, Page 323) from Governor Charles Graville Montague of the South Carolina Province in which William had to pay the Colonial government 3 shillings sterling, or 4 shillings proclamation money, per 100 acres each following March for two years from 17 February 1767. Also, as part of the grant terms, he had to clear and bring into cultivation three percent of the land each year. Berkeley County, formed in 1683 and later discontinued under that name, became part of Spartanburg County. It should not be confused with the present Berkeley County close to the Atlantic coast.
William left a 1787 will, portions of which are as follows: "In the name of God Amen Whereas I William Young Senr of the state of South Carolina and Spartanburg County Being infirm in Body" ... "will that all my Debts and funeral Charges be Paid" "Thirdly I will and Bequeth that my Land be Equally Divid Betwixt my Two sons Thomas Young and Richd Young. Thomas to have 75 acres Running North and South across the Land and his part Joining his own Land Where he now Dwells and the Lower End to the East 75 acres I give to Richd Joining to Benjamin Wofford Old Place also I will that if Edwd Smith sould Die I Give Mary his wife my Daughter Privilege to come and Live one 25 acres of that Land During her life or Widow hood Lest not to Rent out or Disposs of it Except She wants to Live on And she is not to have any Claim" .. "also Do Consent and Appoint my sons Thomas and Richard to be the Sole Executors of this my Last Will and Testament. fourthly I Will and Bequeth that all my Moveable Goods be Divided Equally amongst all the Rest of my Children" ... "this 31st Day of March one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven." It was signed and sealed by William Young, and was witnessed by James Creek-Tyger River neighbors Millenton "X" Smith and Thomas "T" Brown (both made their marks).
In his will, William did not mention his son William nor William Senr's late son Nathaniel nor Nathaniel's children. The biggest clue that William Senr had children other than those he named in his will are his words in his will which say "all the Rest of my Children" after he carefully named Thomas, Richard, and Mary. And there are other clues of more children: On 4 April 1795 William Young and his wife Patience, of Laurens County South Carolina, sold to "Thomas Young of Spartanburg County" for (pounds)50 Sterling a 100 acre tract "situate lying and being in Spartanburg County and State aforesaid on a Branch of Tyger River called Jamies Creek Bounded to the East by land of Wm Young Senr, West by land of George Crawford, and all other sides by vacant land at the time of surveying." In this sale to Thomas, it also said William "shall stand siezed of a good sure perfect and indefineable estate of Inheritance in fee simple of and in all the aforesaid plantation or Tract of one Hundred Acres." See the biography of his son Nathaniel Young. On 7 October 1809 Thomas Young sold seventy five acres to Thomas' son William Young. This land was described as "being part of a tract of land containing one hundred fifty acres granted to my father William Young Sen by his Excellency Governor Montague" in February 1767 "on a branch of Tyger called Jameys Creek and the south side of said river." Thomas refers to his father as "Senr," thus implying that there was a son William Young Junr.
Sixty six acres of the same James Creek-Tyger River land was sold by William Young Senr's grandson John Young [Y1], son of Nathaniel, on 23 December 1808 in which the land was described as being "at the northwest corner of a tract of two hundred acres originally granted to George Crawford beginning at said corner on a hickory tree near James Creek." This puts Nathaniel's children next to where William Senr lived.
William's wife remains unknown; she probably died prior to William since he made no provisions for her in his will. He must have died soon after March 1787, because at the time he wrote his will William was "infirm in Body." He probably died at his home in the Tyger River-James Creek area of Spartanburg. County. His probable children were
1. Nathaniel Young, b a1750s
2. Mary Young, b a1750s
3. William Young, b 1750s
4. Thomas Young [Y5], b a1756
5. Richard Young, b c1755 (63,NY,JE,1wyz.)2"

     William Young per Leggitt: "describes our Young lineage from William Young up through my great grandfather, John Archie Young. I found this text while on a visit to Memphis in 1993 when I visited the Tennessee Genealogical Society. Here is the introduction of the book:

lNTRODUCTlON

There were over a dozen different Young settlers in pre-1830 Giles County and the surrounding area. Most Young descendants contained in this book descend from the Youngs of Bradshaw Creek in Giles County Tenessee, (in today's civil district 10) or their close cousins in Maury County. there were other Young pioneers in Maury and HickmanCounties (from Pennsylvania and from Kentucky) who are not listed herein.
There were twelve researchers who contributed information for this book. Each had gathered information on his own for various reasons, most being curiosity in his or her ancestry and the love of solving a puzzle in which each researcher was a part. Flora East of Madera, California and Louise Young of Tyronza, Arkansas had in the late 1960s supplied John Young with the information which took his search to Giles County, and in April 1981 he made contact with cousin Gerald Young, and in June with another cousin, Martha Ann Young, both of Giles County. From these two contacts other cousins were reached who freely gave their information to this Young biography; as time went on, seven more contributed heavily to the Young Family information.
Credit for most of the South Carlina research goes to Neva Fern Young of Temple, Texas, with much of her earlier information coming from Virginia Short of Waco; Jackie Ellis of Walnut Creek, California supplied the Willeford information and much South Carolina Young information; Juanita Elllis of Dallas, Texas supplied much of the information on a branch of the Youngs who moved to Texas; Gerald Young, Martha Young, and George Worsham of Giles County tirelessly phoned, wrote, and visited many cousins, graveyards, and the Giles County courthouse for more data; and Geraldine Young of Wellsville, Ohio wrote to many of the 20th Century cousins. Contributions from John Young were primarily Tennessee census reading and hundreds of hours in front of a keyboard. No one person is responsible for this project; it was a joint effort which could not have been accomplished without all eleven, plus the many more not named on this page who provided twigs and branches to the Family Forest. The Giles County Historical Society must also be commended; their publications provided quite a bit of information contained herein.
This book, at first glance, would normally be called a Genealogy by most. But since there are Youngs who have no obvious ties to others within these pages, a better description would be to call it Kinology. Keep in mind than information on living cousins was mostly gathered over a five year period, so some of it can easily be out of date by now; children may have married, old folks may have died, etc.
Over the past five years we exchanged information by letter. But as the Young names began to pile up, (over 3,000 at last count, not counting names of spouses and in-laws), a computer with a word processor was used. If anyone would prefer the information contained in this book on 5.25 inch computer diskettes (IBM format), contact John Young. Even with these tools, undreamed of just two generations ago, there will no doubt be mis- takes and omissions. That is inevitable in a venture of this size, But fortunately, mistakes can by corrected. Any additions, and/or corrections, and requests should be addressed to John Young, 6513 N San Pablo, Fresno CA 93704. Telephone (209) 431-8559. Although this book will probably not have a second (i.e., updated) printing, corrections and additions will be added to our data files. For those who may need updated information only or just certain names, contact the source person who has generally done the research on that line, or contact John Young.

The following is what the text has to say about the earliest Young in our line:

William Young, brother of George Young of Virginia and brother of Thomas Young of North Carolina, lived in Pennsylvania. He probably had sons- a. Thomas Young Sr, b a1730; see his biography.
b. William Young, b 1740s; see his biography.
c. Jesse Young, left a 1799 will which was recorded in Union County, South Carolina in 1807.
d. Christopher Young was an adult in 1786; in that year there was a land transaction between him and Colonel Thomas Brandon. (MM,JE)

The Young Families of Early Giles County Tennessee is available on LDS microfilm 1421702, Item 15. John E. Young gives all permission to photocopy and duplicate the book in anyt way seen fit.

In 1996 Shirley Gay of Tucson, AZ corresponded with me about possible common Young ancestors. In the course of the exchange, Shirley provided me an updated version of The Young Families of Early Giles County on disk. She indicated she had not been successful in contacting John Young in Fresno but had met a Jean Burns Cosby while she was in Pulaski in May. Ms. Cosby had provided her a copy of the updated text.

Shirley Gay descends from William C. Young's youngest daughter Elizabeth, born 1854 in Pulaski, Giles County, Tennessee.

This updated text contains significant additional information about my personal Young ancestry. The original text contained 263 pages. The updated text contains 463 pages."2 GAV-8.

Thomas Young died before 3 February 1791.1

     Thomas Young lived at York Co., Pennsylvania, USA.1

Thomas Young per Leggitt: "The Young Families says this about this Thomas Young:

Thomas Young Sr, son of William Young who had brothers George and Thomas, was born prior to 1730, probably in England since he was an Episcopalian (see the memoirs of Major Thomas Young at the end of this book). He was a child or young man when he came to York County Pennsylvania. He may have married in Pennsylvania to a Miss Kilgore or Gray, In any case, his first wife died after having a son and daughter. Thomas moved to the South Carolina Province, settling in the part of 96 District where Laurens County is now, and in 1764 moved up to the part of 96 which became Union County in 1798. He married Catherine Brandon, daughter of George Brandon, and sister of Colonel Thomas Brandon who led many well documented battles in the Carolinas against the British in the early 17809. (See the memoirs of Major Thomas Young at the end of this book.) Catherine died in Union County after 6 January 1815 when she put her "X" on estate papers of her husband in Union County; Thomas also died in (then) Union District. His will was written 19 May 1777 and was recorded 3 February 1791 in Union District (the oldest will on file in the county). Therefore, Thomas must have died early in 1791. Witnesses to the will were Thomas Brandon, John Brandon, and William Kennedy. Thomas and his brother-in-law Colonel Thomas Brandon were among the first settlers of the Union County area of South Carolina; Thomas and his family lived about four miles south of the Union courthouse (which is about fifteen miles east of the Young families of the eastern edge of Spartanburg County). He was granted 550 acres on Buffalo Creek in January 1785, which he later sold to Colonel Brandon. Thomas also owned land along Fairfcrest Creek and at the forks of the Broad and Saluda Rivers. His children, from whom most of Union County's Young families of today descend, were-
1. William Young, born 24 October 1744 in York County Pennsylvania. He served in the Revolution and moved to Maury County Tennessee, settling along the Duck River about 1807, and raised a family there. He was probably the William Young living close to his brother Thomas in Union County in 1790. If so, at that time he had two children-
a. boy (Major Samuel?) Young, born 1774 to 1790.
b. girl Young, born by 1790.
2. George Young (Sr), born 5 December 1755 near the future town of Clinton in South Carolina, and died 13 October 1833 in Laurens County. He is buried at Duncan's Creek Presbyterian Church in Laurens County. He married his first cousin Elizabeth McCrary, who was born 15 February 1759 in South Carolina and died 2 December 1800. After Elizabeth died, George married Ailsey Whitmore. He must have either lived close to Union County, or lived there for a while since he is listed as a member of the Boiling Spring Baptist Church (founded in 1772) in Union County. His children were-
a. Lettice "Letty" Young, married Rowland.
b. Jane Young, married ____ Whitmore.
c. George Young Jr, born 9 September 1788, died 2 August 1843. He married Mary Ducket, who was born in 1791 and died in 1831.
d. Thomas Young
e. Mary Young
f. Elizabeth Young
3. John Young, was killed by Tories on 10 July 1780 at Sardis, South Carolina.
4. Mary Ann Young, born about 1760, married Robert Gregory.
5. Rachael Young, probably never married.
6. Jane Young, married (William?) Steen.
7. Thomas Young Jr, born 17 January 1764; see below.
8. Ruth Young, probably never married.
9. Eleanor Young, born 1767, died in 1847, married John Cunningham.
10. Elizabeth Young, probably never married.
11. Letitia Young, married John or Jehu Gregory.
12. Christopher Young, born 14 August 1772 in Union District, died 28 February 1849. He married Mary "Polly" Humphries, daughter of Charles Humphries Sr and Elizabeth Palmer, on 7 January 1806. They built their home on the site where Colonels Brandon and Lyles formed a camp near Fairforest Creek, about four miles from the present town of Union. Christopher and Polly had four children-
a. Sara A Young
b. Robert Young
c. Martha Elizabeth Young
d. Catherine Brandon Young, married William Henry Sartor on 30 January 1840. (GO,NY,JE,MM,2aw.)1"
