Thomas McCrary S.C., The Genealogy
For everyone who has a copy of "Thomas McCrary, The Genealogy" that I compiled and distributed on the Internet a couple of years ago, please replace the paragraph for Thomas Young as below. You will note that I changed his death date, now accurate from his estate file--I had taken it from a transcription which was incorrect in the original. Note, also, that his widow, Susannah (Duckett) Young remarried and moved to Georgia, novel information. Also, that Susannah was a daughter of Thomas and Mary (O'Dell) Duckett.
A. Thomas Young (1781-1814), married Susannah Duckett (1786-____), a daughter of Thomas and Mary (O’Dell) Duckett. Thomas Young was buried in Duncan’s Creek Presbyterian Church Cemetery. As of 1833, there were only two living children of his, George and Thomas Young, named in the will of George Young, Sr. (Laurens County, S.C., WB-F, p.497.) His remarried widow must have also been dead because she was not named in her mother’s 1832 will. [Sarah Ducket (sic), Laurens County, S.C., WB-F, p.455, 1832.] Susannah (Duckett) McCrary remarried to Andrew Gibson by 1820 as evidenced in an equity suit brought by Andrew and Susannah Gibson for a division of the land left by Thomas Young, in which it states that Susannah was the widow of Thomas Young who left three children, George Young, Thomas Young, and Jacob Young. (Washington District Equity Court, Laurens County, S.C., Probate Records, Partitions of Estates, 1809-1826.) Also, the intestate of Thomas Young includes a document signed by Susannah Duckett Young that she remarried to Andrew Gibson, and the birth dates of her children; George Young born 15 June 1804, Thomas Young born 25 April 1806, and Jacob Young born 1 March 1808. There is also a document signed by James Dillard, J.P., in 1819 that he married Thomas Young and Susannah Duckett just before Christmas in 1802 or 1803. (Laurens County, S.C., Probate Court, Box 78, Pkg. 5, 1814.) Andrew and Susannah (Duckett) McCrary Gibson moved to Henry County, Ga. (Newberry County, S.C., Probate Court, Book I, 242-243, Thomas Duckett estate, 1824.)
