Advisory on Rebecca Young
One source claims that the parents of Rebecca Young were John Young, Jr. (d. bef. 5/20/1783, Augusta County, VA) and Elizabeth, but this is in error as that John Young and Elizabeth would have been too young to have been Rebecca's parents. They did have a daughter Rebeckah, but she was apparently born much later, perhaps in 1750. As proven in the will of John Young, Jr, listed below, Rebecca was the SISTER of John Young, Jr. and the daughter of John Young, Sr. and Anne Houston:
