Looking for kin of Abraham YOUNG Sr b 1784 Andover Esses Co MASS (?)
died 1857 Guilford Me.
Abraham Sr was ma to a Hannah WRIGHT. 1781 Lewiston, d 1863 Guilford, Me
Her father was Jesse Wright and Abbey Cook.1739-1784
and son Abraham Young Jr. Jr went to ILLinois then to IOWA. b 1813 Franklin Co. ME d Nashua IA 1883.
Would love exchange of ideas, comments and to learn about other family members.
Does he go back to Johann Jacob Jung who emigrated from Strasbourg France area (then Germany) sometime after 1750 to Nova Scotia? Reason I ask is that one of his sons, Jacob, married a woman in Marblehead,MA, Rachel Ferguson, so at least one of the Jungs was in the Essex Co. area around that time. I think he was already calling himself Young at that point, but not sure. The name morphed into Young at least in the next generation. Jacob had a brother named Abraham b. 1734 Germany who died young; it's possible that a nephew was in remembrance of him? It wasn't a son of Jacob, unless there is one that I have missed. My closest Young (Jung) was in Charlotte County NB.
