Facts and Events
John Young was one of the Early Settlers of Augusta County, Virginia
Advistory on John Young
Some sources claim that John Young's wife was Elizabeth, others claim it was Margaret. The confusion is because there are two consecutive wills of John Young listed in Chalkleys, one is for John Young (Junior), son of this John Young, whose wife is listed as Margaret in his will. It appears that both John Youngs (Senior and Junior) died at approximately the same time, since both wills were proven on the same day in Augusta County, VA records. Based upon the will of John Young, Jr., he died in service to his country in the Revolutionary War.
