William YOUNG 1 Born: 1725-1730, , co. Antrim, IRE 2 Marriage: Mary UNKNOWN Died: 1818, , , KY, USA

  General Notes:

This is the ancestor of Sharon Young Jebavy. He was married 3 times. His last wife's name was Mary according to Sharon Jebavy. A Chalkley record dated 1779 that said both William Young and William Hughes (his father-in-law) were delinquent in their tithables because they had "...gone to KY." He moved to Lincoln Co., KY by 1777 where he lived the rest of his life. This part of Lincoln Co., KY later became Garrard Co., KY. William Young was at Logan's Fort. He was with Capt. Boyle's Company that was dispatched to forts along Dick's River in Lincoln Co., KY. Col. Young had also been at Craig's Station. In the Fall of 1783, everyone from Craig's Station left there and went to the Gilbert's Creek Station, including the William Young family. Almost everyone stayed at Gilbert's Creek. William got land grants in Lincoln Co., KY in 1783 that required him and verified that he had been in Kentucky from Jan. 1778 to Oct. 1779.

The following records from Chalkley might apply to him, but there appear to be several Williams in Augusta Co., VA.
