Looking for info on a family of youngs and their relations. My ggggrandfather John H. Youngs was born in 1822. He had a sister Catherine Youngs b. about 1825 m. John J. Eckler. In 1850 Catherine and husband are in Florence, Oneida, NY and John is living with them so is his mother NANCY YOUNGS b. 1801. I don't know who the father is.
Anyway, John marries Mary Edgecomb of MI sometime btwn 1850 and 1855. They move to MI have 3 girls (Henrietta 1856, Ida1859/60, and Mary 1861). Mary Edgecomb dies by 1863, the girls are fostered out and I think John Moves back to NY. His sister Catherine is widowed in 1863 she has a daughter Winnie. by 1880 Catherine is living with her mother Nancy both still widowed and there is a John H. Youngs now 58 married to ARTIMICIA and has 3 kids ...Willie age 13(1867), Bertie 4 (1876), and Lulu 2 (1878).
The story I was told is that when Mary Edgecomb died the kids were fostered and my gggrandma resented it because John remarried and new wife did not want the girls. I believe this John H is my grandfather in is second marriage. I would love any info on the subsequent children of ARTIMICIA. Anyone have any Idea?
