I'm interested in learning more about the YOUNGs who came to Cass county in the mid 1840s and 1850s. My ggg-grandfather, Jesse YOUNG left Nodaway Co MO around 1860, (perhaps with his wife Nancy (McCoun) and children, Louisa,Margaret, and son Lewis...we aren't sure) to join his brothers and Mother who had already settled in Cass County, after leaving their original home in Prestonburg, Floyd Co KY. Jesse (b 1815) was the son of Charles W. YOUNG and Margaret (McBroom) YOUNG. Charles died @1844 in Missouri, but Margaret continued onward to NE with the rest of the family, most are buried in YOUNG cemetery, Plattsmouth NE. Lewis Harvey (1824-1904) Rebecca Jane (1826-1895) Mary Magdalena (1832-1912) Clara Ellen (1834-1916) Francis Marion (1837-1910) Lucretia (1839-1866) and their mother, Margaret (Peggy) McBroom YOUNG (1798-1875) I've only begun researching this family, and ANY information about them would be greatly appreciated! and especially about Jessie YOUNG, our family knows nothing about what happened to him after the 1850 census.
I've never been able to find any of the family on the 1860 census!
He may be in Cass Co for the 1870 census, (with a younger wife, Vestrissa, and James and Mary McMahon) And supposedly he is burried in the YOUNG cemetery, after dying in 1904, but I can't find any record of that.
