 i. NELSON4 YOUNG, b. 1840.


6.  WARREN3 YOUNG (STEPHEN2 , ROBERT YOUNG1) was born about 1789 in South Carolina, and died about 1827 in Gwinnett Co.  GA.  He married ADELINE (LINNEY) ASBURY about 1810 but record not found yet.  She was born about 1790 in S.C. (age & birthplace from 1860 Randolph Co Al census, and she died after 1860 in Al.

Warren Young and Adeline Asbury Young are thought to be the parents of Nancy Jane Young and others listed below.  So far the proof has eluded us.

Warren's orphans drew land in the  1827 land lottery from Gwinnett Co. Ga.  Warren was the son of Stephen Young of Madison Co. Ga. formerly Oglethorpe Co., and his wife, Dinah Tucker . I am interested in the Youngs of Randolph and Clay Co. Al, because they may be the siblings of my Nancy Jane Young, born July 1824, Ga. and died 27 Nov. 1888, Hall Co. Ga.  She had a sister, Celia Young, born April 1820, Ga. and died 28 April 1906, Hall Co. Ga.  Nancy married Morris William Cash, 19 March 1847, Hall Co. Ga.  They're on the 1850-1880 Hall Co. Ga. censuses, and both are buried in Union Bapt. Church Cemetery, Hall Co.  Celia Young married John Orr and they're in the 1850-80 Hall Co. censuses.

 Warren Young served in the 1812 war in the 25th Regt. Jackson Co. Ga. in 1812 War.    Warren Young was in the 1820 Gwinnett Co. censuses as 26/45 yrs old with a female 26/45 yrs old; 1 female under 10 , and 3 males under 10.
Warren died by the 1827 land lottery, since his orphans of Moore's Dist. Gwinnett won Lot #138, 2nd District, Coweta Co. Ga.; land granted on 22 Jan 1838.   Linney Young, female, age 40/50 in 1830 Gwinnett Co. census with 2 females age 5/10; 2 females 15/20; 1 male under 5; 2 males 5/10; 2 males 15/20.  Was Linney the widow of Warren Young?  In 1840 and 1850, this Linney was not found in any Georgia or Alabama census.  in 1860 Randolph Co. Al, shows Asberry Young, age 48, and his family including Linney Young (same as one in Gwinnett Co.? no proof), age 70, in his household, relationship not given on this census .  No estate record was found on Warren Young, apparently because of the courthouse fires..  Warren is the proven son of Stephen and Dinah Tucker Young, and the brother of Robert Young (b. 12 Dec. 1760, Halifax Dist. N.C.; died 21 March 1854, Hall Co.).  Robert and many members of the Young family are buried in the Young Family Cemetery in Hall Co. including Dinah Tucker Young (b. 7 Jan. 1740 N.C.; d. 6 Jan. 1848, Hall Co. Ga. 108 yrs old at death).  I visited this cemetery about 1983. Stephen named Warren in his will.

Now this land was granted to Warren's orphans, in Coweta Co. Ga. in 1838.  In 1839 deeds show that Redmond B. Young of Carroll Co. Ga., Asbury Young of Carroll Co. Ga., John T. Young of Coweta Co. Ga, and Abraham Holland of Coweta Co. (probably a son-in-law of Warren Young) each of them sold an undivided 7th part of Lot #138, Dist. 2 of Coweta Co. Ga.  Apparently, 7 children won this lot in 1827 lottery , but these four are the only ones identified in Coweta Co. Deeds Bk. F:502-504.

By the 1850 census, all these Youngs were in Randolph C0. Al.  In addition to those named, we find also Carson M. Young, b. about 1825, Ga. and his wife who was Elizabeth Lynch.  Redmon B. Young, b. abt 1818, Ga. , marr. Martha Mabrey, 26 Jan 1837, Carroll Co. Ga.  Asbury Young, b. 12 Aug. 1815, Ga. married (1) Elizabeth Baker, 8 Feb. 1842, Carroll Co. married  (2) Caroline Price; m. (3) Keziah Patton.  John T. Young was b. about 1812, Ga. m. Sarah Wilson, 1834, Coweta Co.  According to the Al censuses, both John T. and Redmond B. named a child , Adeline, and Carson M. named  a child, Linney E. Young.

Nancy Jane Young and Morris W. Cash named a child Rufus Asbury Cash; he was my great-grandfather.  They also named a child Willis Warren Cash.  The research done to date hasn't proven who her parents are.  These names may be co-incidences.  I  met one of Willis Warren Cash's children, Nina Sells, about 17 yrs ago, and she told me the Warren in her father's name came from his grandfather she was always told.

Nancy Jane Young was the second wife of Morris William Cash, and the direct ancestress of Thelma Faye Cain Prince, the compiler of this genealogy.  Nancy Jane Young's parents are unproven, but it is believed that she was the daughter of Warren Young and her mother was Linney Asbury Young.  Warren was the son of Stephen Young of Madison Co. Ga.  Warren died prior to 1827, because his orphans drew land in the 1827 Land Lottery;however  all their names were not given in that record.

Nina Mae Cash Sells, daughter of Willis Warren Cash, and grandaughter of Nancy Jane Young Cash told me that Nancy had a sister, Celia Young Orr of Hall Co. Ga.
