A few years ago I went to the graveyard on Memorial Day with my mother and her sister and brother and some cousins. Mom is Ben Youngs granddaughter and her sister, Kimball Young Henson. Her brother is "Sonny" Young now deceased. Mom (Hazel Young) is still alive, age 85 and Kimball is still alive age 82. Kimball Henson lives in Breathitt, Mom in Cincinnati Ohio. This was the first time I had been to the graveyard. Mom said they used to go every Memorial Day when she was a kid and have dinner on the ground and spend the day there. I had asked her who was buried there. This is in Breathitt Co. She told me Ben and Becky (Gillum) were buried there and other relatives. So we went with wreaths and flowers for the graves. I asked her about Benjamins parents but she knew nothing. When we got there the first grave we decorated was Bradley and Sarah (Raleigh) Young, mom and Kimballs parents. They had flowers also for Tommie Young who was Benjamins son who died when he was about 10. I looked around for Ben and Rebeccas grave but didnt see it. Mom knew nothing. Aunt Kimball told me that they had no marker. I couldnt believe it. When I got back to Cincinnati I got the addresses of all the grandchildren of Ben and Rebecca and wrote and asked for a contribution for a stone. Everyone I wrote sent money. It was wonderful. I ordered a marker and had it set. Anyway, while I was at the graveyard I began to browse. It wasnt long before I found James and Emaline. Mom and Kimball didnt even know who they were and had never decorated it. As I recall, mom mentioned the name of the graveyard as Smith Graveyard. There are a lot of Smiths buried there. Ben's two sisters had married Smiths, I believe they were brothers, not sure. I have 7 volumes of cemetery books from Breathitt but this graveyard was not included in them.

Chris and Crystal,

I have not worked on my Youngs and Gillums in a long time. I have been doing a lot of volunteer lookups.

First I would love also to have any Young or Gillum photos. A few years ago I acquired Ben (my gr grandfather) and his brother Greely Young, together. I would love to see Brack. Are we talking about Ben and Greely's brother Brack? I remember mom telling me about Brack. She said he would often drink buttermilk when he was at Ben Young and Becky's (Gillum). She laughed as she recalled how he would suck the buttermilk from his mustache. Also I do have a photo of James Young and Emalines graves, if anybody wants it. As I recall, there were two small rocks on each side of that grave with initials carved into them, as I recall the two children who died young. One was Thomas, I would have to look at my records for the other one, a female first or second child as memory recalls (maybe Elizabeth?). I have a photo of Dora Gillum Hatton, sister to Becky Gillum. I have a photo of Betty Young Smith (another sibling) with her son Edin Smith and his wife. I have a photo of William Jackson Cope who was a brother to Wiley. I have a photo of Delilah Strong Cope, sister to Susan Strong, Melissa Strong Back sister to Susan, and Thomas Jefferson Strong a brother to Susan Strong Cope. Some arent real clear but good enough to see what they looked like.

There is no doubt in my mind that Thomas Young is the father of our James although some people reject that.

Nice to hear from you Sharon, and glad to meet you Chris.
