  1. 8.  Washington Young was born 1790, Virginia; died Aft 12 Sep 1850, Wayne County, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    Washington Young was a prominent early settler and was the progenitor of a rather large and successful family. It is not presently known when Washington came to Wayne County, nor who his parents were; it is known that he was in the county at the time the census was taken in 1820. It should be pointed out here in the beginning that there were two Washington Youngs in the Little South Fork Country, and to further confuse the matter, they married three daughters of Benjamin and Catherin Troxell Adkins. Washington Young, who lived at the head of Langham Fork, was the older. He first married Sarah Adkins and after her death, he married Margaret Pemberton. This Washington Young, was some 16 years older than the Washington Young who married Emily (Milly) Adkins. We know definitely that Washington Young died prior to February 28, 1853, as this is the date that Margaret (Pemberton) Young was appointed guardian for Granville M., Serina, Rebecca and Sarah E. Young, infant heirs of Washington Young. On the same date John Burris was appointed guardian for Minrod and Polly Ann Young.

    The Washington Young old home place was a large one story log house, and was constructed of oak logs, some of which were 18 inches wide. The dobbing between the logs has the date of 1790 cut into it. On the west end of the house is a large rock chimney, constructed of linestone rock, which is native to the area. In front of the house is a large spring, lined with cedar logs and growing an abundance of water cress. It has been said that Washington owned more than 5000 acres in Wayne County

    After Washington's death, starting with Nimrod's trip in 1859, the children began migrating to Jasper County, Iowa settling in the Rock Creek, Buena Vista and Washington Townships. All the children went to Iowa with the exception of Telitha and Catharine; however, Cyrena, Elizabeth and Evelyn Alice later returned to Kentucky, living there the remainder of their lives.
