Britton Hood, Esq., husband of Mary Bass, daughter of Edward Bass brought suit to revoke the conditions of the will of Edward Bass, based upon the fact it was not his handwriting, and that he had issue not included in the will, namely Mary and Keziah Bass who married John Cox.

Posted by Roger Kammerer on July 11, 1999 at 08:52:44:
In Reply to: Re: Albert Gray BASS of Wayne & Johnston NC posted by Darl S. Hood on October 09, 1998 at 22:09:09: In the John Herritage Bryan papers, PC 6.25, NC Archives, are the following Bass family notes for a law case:
Edward Bass, d. 1802 with a Will.
widow Sarah, d. Jan. 1826
Children:
1) John Bass, d. Ala. ca. 1820/21 leaving children: Uriah, Polly, Betsy, Sally, Ann,
Keziah and Richard.
2) Andrew Bass, lives in Johnston Co., NC
3) William Bass, lives in Wayne Co., NC
4) Uriah Bass, d. w/o issue
5) Richard Bass, d. about 1807, (widow remd. Elisha Boyt) leaving 3 children:
Elizabeth (m. Thomas Boyt, went to Tenn.), Sarah (m. William Jacobs, went to Tenn.)
and Edward Bass, went to Tenn.
6) Mary Bass, m. Britton Hood. Lived in Wayne Co., NC
7) Keziah Bass, m. John Cox. Lived in Wayne Co., NC
State of N. Carolina
Wayne County
To the Worshipful the Justices of the court Pleas and Quarter Sessions of
Wayne County
The partition of Britton Hood and Mary his wife and John Cox and Keziah his wife all of Wayne County humbly showeth that Edward Bass late of Wayne County died in the month of....... in the year one thousand eight
hundred and two. Soon after his decease (to wit) at November sessions of Wayne County Court 1802, a paper writing purporting to be the last Will of said Edward Bass was produced and submitted to probate on the oaths of John Brogdon and John Bass who were the subscribing witnesses thereto and Richard Bass one of the executors named therein qualified as executor thereto. By the said Will the said Edward Bass left devised all his lands to his sons , John Bass, Andrew Bass, William Bass, Uriah Bass. Besides the said devisees the said Edward Bass left surviving him other children Viz. Richard Bass and Petitioners Mary and Keziah who with the said devisees were his heirs at law. To Sarah Bass the wife of the said Edward, the said Will gave an estate for life in certain lands. Your petitioners Mary, was the wife of Britain Hood at the decease of her father the said Edward Bass and your petitioners Kezziah Bass has since intermarried with John Cox. Both of your Petitioners, Mary and Kiziah were infants under the age of twenty one at the death of their father and at their intermarriages. Your Petitioners charge that they had no notice of the probate of the said will, nor were they particularly informed of its contents until long after it's probate. The said widow Sarah Bass, having recently died and inquiry arising on that event as to the disposition of the land occupied by her during her life, your Petitioners have with- in six months past discovered that the will of the said Edward Bass was not executed with the solementies required by law to pass an interest in lands in as much as John Bass one of the subscribing witnesses and by whose oath the said will was proved, was one of the devisees in the said Will and not a competent witness to prove the same, and the said Will was not in the hand writing of the said Edward Bass, nor was it alleged or proved to be in his handwriting. So that the said Will was insufficient to pass the title to the lands of the said Edward Bass and should have been proved as a Will of Personal Property only. Your petitioners charge that your partitioners Mary and Keziah being infants and under coverture at the probate of the said Will, ignorant of their rights and unable to assent and protect them, and do continue to the present time, one not bound by the said Probate.That they cannot be disinherited by a proceeding to which they were not parties and of which they had no written notice. To the end therefore that opportunity may be afforded them of defending their rights and contesting the inefficiency of said Will to pass the lands of the said Edward Bass . Your petitioners pray that the Probate of the said Will of Edward Bass as a Will of Lands may be revoked and set aside, that those claiming land under the said Will may if they think proper, exhibit it again for Probate as a Will of Lands.

Your petitioners further shew unto your Worship that Richard Bass has died leaving issue--Elizabeth the wife of Thomas Boyte and Sally the wife of William Jacobs and Edward Bass all of whom reside in Tennessee and do not
join in this petition.

The said John Bass has also died leaving issue Uriah, Mary, Betsy, Anna, Keziah and Richard Bass all of whom are infants and reside in Alabama. Andrew Bass resides in Johnson County, William Bass resides in Wayne County,
Uriah Bass and Richard Bass the executor in the Will has also died.

Your petitioners pray that the said Thomas Boyte and Elizabeth his wife, William Jacobs and Sally his wife and Edward Bass heirs at law of Richard Bass , and Uriah Bass, Mary Bass and Betsy Bass, Anna Bass and Keziah Bass and Richard Bass heirs at law of John Bass and also the said Andrew Bass and William Bass may be made defendants to this Petition and may be cited to appear and before your worship and show cause if any they have, wherefore the probate of the said Will of Edward Bass should not be revived and set aside so far as it may affect the title to the real estate of said Edward Bass be annulled. And your Petitioners will ever pray.
(Signature of Attorney for the Petitioners)
Britton Hood maketh oath that the facts stated in this petition are true to the Best of his Knowledge and belief.

Despite the "W" this appears to be the correct Winnie. For several reasons.
1. Birth date agrees with Oregon Death Index date "Dec 1892" of Winnie Alm Hartley
2. Parents birth states in 1900 are the same as what Winnie has for parents in later years
3. In 1910 Winnie was married to Albert Hartley. Her parents listed with Winnie in 1900 Census Oregon are now in 1910 listed as living in same city as Winnie in North Payette, Canyon, Idaho.

The noble lineage for Michael Cadet Young contained in Walter Jorgensen
Young's 1937 book, "The Young family of Bristol," is fraudulent. Walter
Young hired a genealogist to do the research, but only paid him
$500.00. (See, Young's book and the Walter Young letter in the Kennedy
Collection at UNC Chappel Hill.) Even in the 1930's $500.00 wasn't enou g h to
do even minimal research, so the genealogist found an unrelated, noble
Young family and made up the rest. Unfortunately, Walter Young did not
require documentation for his researcher's romantic story -- probably
because he wanted to believe that Michael Cadet Young had noble
ancestry.

There actually was a Sir Robert Young of Bristol, born July 1, 1570,
and knighted in 1604, as Walter Young's book says. However, Sir Robert
did not have a son Thomas. Sir Robert had three children alive in 1606.
They were daughter Elizabeth, and sons Nicholas and Perigrine Young.
These three children were mentioned by name in the 15 February 1606 will
of Sir Robert’s half-sister, Anne Strangeways Bridgman. P.C.C (60
Stafford) The will did not mention a Thomas and there are no other
documented children for Sir Robert Young. (“The Family of Yonge, or You ng, of
Bristol, and on the Red Lodge,” J. Maclean., Transactions of the
Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society, Vol. 15, pp. 227-245
(1890-91) )

My husband is descended from Thomas Cadet Young and I have done
extensive research on this family. Even with all the resources availabl e to me
in the 21st century, I have found minimal information about Sir Robert
Young and absolutely nothing about a son named Thomas.

Michael Cadet Young wasn't even a Young. He was a Cadet. His father
was François (Francis) Cadet b. abt 1670 Niort, Poitou, France, and his
mother was Marie Marthe LeGros, b. of Chastelerault, Poitou, France.
They were Huguenot refugees in London. Their son Michael Cadet was
baptized 28 Mar 1694, Threadneedle Street French Huguenot, London, London ,
England. (Colyer-Fergusson, T. C., The Registers of the French Church,
Threadneedle Street, London. Aberdeen, 1906, pp. 131.)

Prepared March 28, 2010, by Janice McAlpine, 2345 Oleander Street, Bat o n Rouge, Louisiana 70806. E-mail: mcalpage@cox.net

Michael Cadet Young: b. mid-April 1700, christened 29 April 1700, Sain t Andrewâs Church, Enfield, London, England, died late December 1769 or e arly January 1770, Poplar Creek, St. Andrews Parish, Brunswick Co., Virgi nia. Michael married Temperance about 1730/1731, probably in He nrico County, Virginia, or in the part of Prince George County which beca me Brunswick County, Virginia.

Michael Cadet Young and his wife Temperance had at least 7 documented chi ldren:

A. Francis Cadet Young: born 25 October 1731, Bristol Parish, Prince Geo rge County, Virginia, d. December 31, 1794, Isle of Wight County, Virgini a.
His birth is recorded in the Bristol Parish Register with Michael and Tem perance Young listed as his parents. Francis married Elizabeth Bennett b etween 1752 and 1753 in Brunswick or Lunenburg County, Virginia. In a l etter, Michael Cadet Young referred to Francis as his "eldest" son. (Mor e in his separate file.)

B. Thomas Cadet Young b. 30 Sep 1732, St. Andrew’s Parish, Brunswic k Co., Virginia, d. 3 or 9 Jul 1829, Iredell Co., North Carolina, burie d Young Cemetery, Hunting Creek, Iredell Co., North Carolina. He marrie d 1st Judith Johnson or Johston and 2nd Lucy Ragsdale. His relationship t o Michael Cadet Young is well documented through several letters from Mic hael Cadet Young to Thomas. (More in his separate file.)

C. Michael Cadet Young, Jr., b. abt 1734 , St. Andrew’s Parish, Brunsw ick Co., Virginia, d. before March 22, 1762, when his will was recorded . He married Lucy (last name unknown). His will mentions his parents an d his wife Lucy. Various printed and internet sources state that his wid ow was Lucy Ragsdale, the second wife of Thomas Cadet Jr. I have not fou nd anything to support this, but it is possible. (More in his separate fi le.)

D. LeGros Cadet Young, b. 1734/1740, probably Brunswick County, Virgini a . He died February or March, 1787, at the Congarees, Camden District , R ichland County, South Carolina. LeGros married Mary McGrew in South C arolina, date unknown. Leros is mentioned as a son in at least one lett er written by Michael Cadet Young. In addition, there are two letters wri tten by LeGros Young to his brother Thomas. (More in his separate file. )

E. John Young, b. abt. 1745, Brunswick Co., Virginia, d. after 1820 i n Tennessee. He was mentioned in a letter Michael Cadet Young wrote to T homas Cadet Young dated February 1, 1767. John was also mentioned as âyou r brother Johnâ€in February 1789 letter from James and Mary Gee to Thoma s Cadet and Lucy Young. In addition, there is a December 10, 1792, let ter written by John Young to Thomas Cadet Young in which he referred to T homas as âBrother Thomas.” John Young married Elizabeth Andrews, daugh ter of Ephraim Andrews. Because their oldest surviving child, William, wa s born 25 March 1783, I assume John and Elizabeth married about 1781/1782 . (More in his separate file.)

F. Martha Young, b. abt 1745/1750. She was mentioned in a lawsuit in L u nenburg County, Virginia. Michael Cadet Young also referred to “you r sis ter” in two 1768 letters to Thomas Cadet Young. The sister was un married at the time the leters were written. Unfortunately, the name o f the sister was not mentioned in the letters. A Martha Young married Sa muel Bugg of Mecklenburg Co., Virginia, abt. 1769/1770. She was listed a s Marth a Bugg in his Dec. 24, 1775, will. I do not know if Martha Youn g Bugg was Michael Cadet Young’s daughter, but the possibility is wort h exploring. (More in her separate file.)

G. William Young b. abt 1745-1750, St. Andrews Parish, Brunswick Count y , Virginia, died after 1820, Campbell County, Virginia. William marri e d Martha about 1780. William was referred to as âbrother Bi lleyâ€in a letter date december 12, 1792, from John Young to Thomas Cade t Young. William was on the 1810 and 1820 census in Campbell Co., Virgin ia. Despite many mistaken, online, family trees, MCYâs son William was n ot the William Young who married Patience Sinclair. (More in his separat e file and in the file for William Young and Patience Sinclair.)

Various family genealogies claim there were also sons named James, Henr y and Benjamin, but no one has provided any documentation for them and th ey are not mentioned in the family letters I have seen. There was a Jame s Young in Brunswick Co., who witnessed deeds in 1773 and 1790, but I hav e not been able to connect him to Michael Cadet Young. I have also foun d a James Young in Halifax Co., but I have nothing to connect him to MCY . For what it is worth, MCY had an uncle Jacque/James Cadet, so a son na med James “fits.”

I have not found anything about a Benjamin Young. However, Michael Cade t Young did have a brother named Benjamin and might have named a son Benj amin after his brother.
* * * *

Michael Cadet Young was born Michael Cadet, probably shortly before hi s c hristening on 29 April 1700, at Saint Andrew’s Church, Enfield, L ondon , England. The christening record reads: “Michael Cadett Christe ning: 2 9 April 1700 Saint Andrew, Enfield, London, England, parents: Fra ncis Cad ett and Mary.” (St. Andrew's Church, Enfield, Middlesex, reg isters in t he London Metropolitan Archives, LDS film 0,585,397.)

As mentioned in the file for MCY's father, François Cadet, MCY's paren t s lost a number of children in infancy. As was common in those days, t he y “reused” important family names, giving subsequent children th e same na mes as deceased siblings. As a result, François and Marie Cade t had two s ons named Michael, one born in 1694 and one born in 1700. Th e christenin g record for the first Michael is abstracted as follows:

"Michael Cadet bpt.: 28 Mar 1694, Threadneedle Street French Huguenot Ch u rch, London, England. Parents: François Cadet and Marie, witnessed b y Ja cques Cadet and Jacques le Gros." (Colyer-Fergusson, T. C., The Regi ster s of the French Church, Threadneedle Street, London, Aberdeen, 1906 , p . 131, The Publications of the Huguenot Society of London, XVI; an d 160 0 - 1639 942.1 L1 B4H V.9 Book England, London, St. Bartholomew b y the Ex change - Church records - Indexes Computer printout of London, T hreadneed le Street French Huguenot, Lond., Eng LDS 6903811 Number of Fic he: 6; Ori ginals of Registers at Guildhall Library London.)

An earlier researcher, Robert Young Clay, a long-time senior libraria n a t the Library of Virginia, found the 1694 christening record for Mich ae l Cadet and assumed that he had the correct record for our Michael Cad e t Young. Until April of 2008, I also assumed that it was the right re co rd for our Michael Cadet Young. However, when I went through microfil m o f original baptismal/christening records at the LDS Family History Li brar y in Salt Lake City, I found the second record for Michael Cadet, so n o f François and Marie Marthe Cadet in the Parish registers of St. An drew' s Church, Enfield, London, Middlesex, England. For the reasons out line d in my file for François Cadet, I am confident that the second 170 0 chri stening record is the correct one for our MCY.

Many online family trees list MCY as having been born 1684, St. James, C l erkenwell, London. This information comes from The Young Family of Br is tol; Young, Walter Jorgensen; Fredericksburg, VA; 1937. The book als o l ists MCY as the son of Francis Young and Martha LeGros of Bristol, E ngla nd with a long noble lineage for Francis. As with much in his book , Wal ter Young did not provide any documentation what-so-ever for this " inform ation," and, as far as I can tell, there is none.

I actually went through the St. James, Clerkenwell records in the LDS li b rary in 2008. Michael Cadet Young is not listed anywhere in the birt h re gisters of St. James, Clerkenwell, even though those records exist f or th e period in question. (City of London Metropolitan Archives. Londo n Gene rations database Saint James, Clerkenwell, Clerkenwell Green, Isli ngton . Composite register: bapt Aug 1673 - Mar 1711, marr Aug 1670 - Ma r 1692 , bur Apr 1670 - Mar 1711: X097/356 - index X102/029; X102/030; X 102/032 ;X10. Also available through LDS: London Metro. Archives cal l no.: P76 /JSI/001-009, 023-029, 031, 064, 171-173, 175-182.)

I also researched the noble Young family of Bristol. Again there is abs o lutely nothing that even hints at the lineage in Walter Young's book . A s it turns out, Walter 's book is mostly fiction based on the wor k o f a hired genealogist, who was paid $500.00 to research the family i n ear ly Virginia and in England. (Walter J. Young letter, Kennedy Colle ction , UNC Chapel Hill.) Five hundred dollars wasn't much money even i n the 1 930's -- certainly not enough to do in depth research of any so rt. I n this case, the fellow didn't bother. For the most part, he i nvente d a romantic tale of wealth and influence in Virginia and manufact ure d a connection between Michael Cadet Young and the noble Young famil y o f Bristol to please the vanity his patron, Walter Jorgensen Young, wh o wa nted noble ancestry. (See notes on Michael Cadet Young genealogy fr aud f or more information.) This wouldn't be much of a problem if th e book w eren't so widely available and cited as proof of MCY's life stor y and anc estry.

MCY’s real father, François Cadet, died December 28, 1712, in the Pari s h of St. Mary Magdalen, Bermondsey, Surrey, England. François Cadet’ s wil l was probated in 1713. (Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills, 1 L eeds 5 31-545.) Jacque Cadet l’aine (a.k.a., James Cadet Sr.) and Mich ael LeGro s testified when the will was probated. François Cadet left h alf of hi s modest estate to his wife Mary Martha and half to his three s ons, Franc is, Michael and Benjamin. Judging from the way the will was d rafted, i t appears that the three sons were unmarried and probably under -age in 17 13. (See François Cadet’s file for the text of the will.)

At some point, Michael changed his French name, Cadet, to the English eq u ivalent, “Young.” This was typical of Huguenots who assimilated fai rly qu ickly into English society and Anglicized their family names. Fo r exampl e the name Dubois became Woods and Roussel became the English Ru ssell. (E glise Protestante Française de Londres accessed October 20, 2008.)

It is not clear whether Michael Cadet Young changed his name from Cade t t o Young in England or Virginia, but, starting about 1729 in Virginia , h e seems to have had “second thoughts” about abandoning the name ⠀œCadet” f or the name “Young,” and started using both “Cadet† and “Young.” From th at point on, most of his signatures were eith er M. Cadet Young or Michae l Cadet Young. His sons, Francis, Thomas, Mi chael, and LeGros, all use d the double surname, “Cadet Young,” whil e their father was alive, but al l appear to have dropped the “Cadet† after their father died. (Robert You ng Clay, Select Virginia Hugueno t Resources in the Library of Virginia, C all Number: 32204, copy in my p aper file.)

On 3 May 1739, Michael Cadet Young testified that it was “now Seventee n y ears since his “Importation from Great Brittain [sic]. . . .” (B runswic k County, Virginia. Deeds & Wills, 1725-1737, p. 241.) This mean s that h e arrived in Virginia about 1722, when he was about age 22. O n the sam e date (3 May 1739) and in the same court, a number of other in dividual s also testified about their importations. Some of the individua ls who te stified included John Stevens, John Scott, John Jackson, Cornel ius Keith , Marmaduke Johnson, Henry Morris, William Eaton, Patrick Demps ey and Tho mas Avent. (Brunswick County, Virginia. Deeds & Wills, 1725-17 37, p. 241- 243)

Michael Cadet Young and these same nine individuals were also listed i n t he "Virginia Patent Book", vol. 18:531 which showed a grant of acrea ge t o Clement Reade dated 12 Mar 1739/40 for the "importation of 10 pers ons t o dwell in Virginia whose names are John Stevens, John Scott, Joh n Jackso n, Cornelius Keith, Marmaduke Johnson, Michael Cadet Young, Henr y Morris , William Eaton, Patrick Dempsey and Thomas Avent...."

Under Virginia law, an individual who paid the transportation costs o f a n immigrant to Virginia received 50 acres of land for each immigran t he i mported into the colony. Although some individuals received lan d grant s for importing family members, most grants were for the importat ion of i ndentured servants. See the following:

“Virginia planters who imported their labor were awarded 50 acres per i nd entured servant. The headright claims for the indentured servants list e d the names of the individuals imported. Headrights were not always cla im ed immediately after immigration. There are instances in which severa l ye ars elapsed between a person's entry into Virginia and the acquisiti on o f a headright and sometimes even longer between then and the patenti ng o f a tract of land.” (Library of Virginia, "Headrights," VA-NOTES , (access ed July 26 , 2006.))

Many, if not most, immigrants came to the colonies as indentured servan t . “In exchange for their service, the indentured servants received t hei r passage paid from England, as well as food, clothing, and shelter o nc e they arrived in the colonies. Some were even paid a salary.” (Ekir ch, A . Roger. "Bound for America," in The William & Mary Quarterly, 3d . series , 42(April 1985): 167-83.)

Judging from the record, Michael Cadet Young arrived in Virginia in 172 2 , probably as an indentured servant. At a minimum, the grant of lan d t o Clement Reade tells us that Michael Cadet Young did not pay his ow n pas sage and undoubtedly had to work off the cost of his transportatio n to Vi rginia. [Caveat: Robert Young Clay says that MCY paid his own p assage , but Robert Young Clay did not discuss, and might not have been a ware of , the record showing a grant of acreage to Clement Reade for impo rting Mi chael Cadet Young.]

Although many low-skilled laborers received no salary for their work a n d were poorly treated as indentured servants, skilled workers were oft e n able to negotiate generous employment contracts before they left Engl an d. Some of these contracts included a grant of land at the end of th e ind enture or an agreement that the servant would be entitled to clai m the im portation headright. (David W. Galson; White Servitude in Coloni al Americ a: An Economic Analysis. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Pr ess, 1981. )

Judging from the letters he left, Michael Cadet Young was well spoken a n d highly literate. Even if he arrived in Virginia as an indentured ser va nt, as I suspect, I am sure he did not work in the fields. He probab l y was a clerk or a manager for a successful land owner.

As far as I can tell, there is no record of Michael Cadet Young from h i s arrival in 1722 to 1725 when he appeared as “Michel le June” or L e Jeun e on the 1725 tithables lists in Henrico County, Virginia. (The V estry B ook of King William Parish, Virginia, 1707-1750. Manakin Episcop al Churc h, Midlothian, Virginia, 1966. p. 256. ) That area of Henrico C o. was po pulated almost entirely by Huguenots and was essentially French -speakin g in the 1720s. According to the Library of Virginia, it was fa irly comm on to see English names show up on records from that place an d period tra nsformed into French approximations. The name "Young" woul d have been pr onounced as "yoon" in the Huguenot community. As a result , the name Le J eune would be an expected approximation for Young -- bo th in meaning an d in pronunciation. Because Michel Le Jeune was not o n any other Hugueno t record for the period, it was reasonable to assum e that Michel Le Jeun e was actually Michael Young, who was on later reco rds.

On May 2, 1726, Michael Cadet Young witnessed the will of Pierre Dutoit/ D utoy of Henrico County. He signed his name as M’l c Young. (Henric o Coun ty, Virginia. Miscellaneous Records (loose papers - original), V ol. 2 p p. 659-661.) Michael Cadet Young’s signature was very distinct ive throug hout his time in Virginia. He elongated the tail of the “g⠀ in Young an d ran it back under his full name adding curls and other f lourishes. Hi s signature on Pierre Dutoit/Dutoy’s 1726 will containe d the fancy-work “ g” that appeared on later documents, including hi s personal letters. A s a result, there is no question that M’l c You ng in 1726 was our Michae l Cadet Young.

Pierre Dutoit was a Huguenot immigrant. (Register of Qualified Hugueno t A ncestors of the Huguenot Society, 4th Ed., Finnell, Arthur Louis: 199 5, p . 86.) The other witnesses to Pierre Dutoit’s will, Jean Jouany , Jean Pi ere Bilbou and Antoine Bennin, were also Huguenot. (List of Man akintown e Huguenot Settlers, published in The Huguenot, 1933, F. Batisse ; Turf f & Twigg: The French Lands, Volume I. Cabell, Priscilla Harriss . Richmon d, VA: Carter Printing Company, 1988; The Virginia Genealogis t - Volum e 7: Jean Jouany, as American as John Jones.)

We know that Michael Cadet Young, Jean Pierre Bilbau and Antoinne Ben i n were employees or indentured servants in the Dutoit household becaus e , Barbara Dutoy, widow of Pierre Dutoit, appeared on the 1726 tithabl e li sts for King William Parish, Henrico County responsible for three ti thes , Michel Yons, Jean Pierre Bilbau and Antoinne Benin. (The Vestry Bo ok o f King William Parish, Virginia, 1707-1750, Manakin Episcopal Churc h, Mi dlothian, Virginia, 1966. p. 371. ) “White women were not tithabl e, but t hey occasionally appeared on the tax lists if, as widows or spin sters, th ey were responsible for paying the tithes of sons, slaves, or e mployees. ” ("What Genealogists should know about 18th Century Virgini a Law", Joh n P. Alcock, November 17, 1999, Library of Virginia, accessed October 20, 2008.)

According to Robert Young Clay, “Yons is a fairly standard spelling fo r t he name Young as pronounced with a French accent and the name so appe ar s in many French Huguenot records.” (Select Virginia Huguenot Resour ces i n the Library of Virginia, Call Number: 32204, copy in my paper fil e. ) I also suspect the "Yons" may be a mistranscription of "Yong." I n a n umber of records I looked at, the final letter in the name could ea sily h ave been transcribed as either and "s" or "y." In any event, beca use Mic hael Cadet Young witnessed Pierre Dutoit’s will in 1726, I a m confiden t that “Michel Yons,” who was an employee or indentured se rvant in the wi dow Barbara Dutoy’s household, was our Michael Cadet Yo ung .

On August 3, 1728, as “Michael Young,” our MCY witnessed a deed in He nric o County from Robert Mann to Thomas Mann. Other witnesses were Mar k Moo r and George Hunt Moore. (Henrico County, Virginia. Deeds & Wills , 1725- 1737, pp. 195-196.)

On the 1st Monday in October, 1729, Michael witnessed a deed from Godfr e y Fowler, Sr., and Godfrey Fowler, Jr., to William Dunavant in Henric o Co unty. Other witnesses were Gilbert Morry and Philip Dunavant. His si gnatu re on the deed is “M˚ C. Young” and it bears the same flouris h as his sig nature on the will of Pierre Dutoit. (Henrico County, Virgi nia. Deed s & Wills, 1725-1737, pp. 351-352)

Generally speaking, an indentured servant was prohibited from marryin g o r have children during the term of his indenture. (Ekirch, A. Roger . "Bou nd for America," The William & Mary Quarterly, 3d. series, 42 (Apr il 1985 ): 167-83.) This may explain why MCY’s first son, Francis Cade t Young, w as not born until 25 October 1731, nine years after MCY’s im portation i n 1722. (The Vestry Book and Register of Bristol Parish, Virg inia, 1720-1 789, transcribed and published by Churchill Gibson Chamberla yne. Richmond , Va. 1898.) If Michael Cadet Young had been an indenture d servant unde r a 7 year contract, his contract would have terminated i n 1729. He coul d then have married in 1730 and had his first child in 1 731.

Michael Cadet Young married Temperance about 1730/1731, probab l y in Henrico County, Virginia, or in the part of Prince George County , th at became Brunswick County, Virginia. Temperance is the only wife o f who m we have any record. Contrary to the information contained in Th e Youn g Family of Bristol, there is absolutely no evidence that Michae l Cadet Y oung married before 1730, that his wife first wife was named Ma rtha, or t hat Temperance was a second wife.

Michael Cadet Young's first child, Francis Cadet Young, was born in 173 1 . Temperance was listed as Francis' mother on his 1731 birth record. ( Th e Vestry Book and Register of Bristol Parish, Virginia, 1720-1789, tra nsc ribed and published by Churchill Gibson Chamberlayne. Richmond, Va. 1 898. ) In a Brunswick Co., Virginia, deed dated 25 November 1755, Temp eranc e Young relinquished her dower rights in land transferred by Micha el Cad et Young Sr. to Buckner Stith. (Brunswick Co. Deed Book 5, p. 744 ; and O rder Book 5, p. 503.) Michael Cadet Young, Jr.'s, 1762 will liste d Temper ance as “my mother Temperance Young.” (Brunswick Co.,Virgi nia, Will Bo ok 4, pt.2,198-(278) Will of Michael Young Jr. of St. Andre w's Paris h 5 Feb. 1762, probate 22 March 1762.)

After the birth of Francis Cadet Young in 1731, the next record we hav e f or Michael Cadet Young is in Brunswick County, Virginia, on 31 July 1 734 , when he witnessed a deed for George King. (Early Settlers of Meckle nbur g Co, Virginia, Katherine B. Elliott, South Hill, VA (1965), p. 78. ) Ho wever, it appears that MCY purchased land in Brunswick County fro m Thoma s Wilson at some point prior to May 1732, because the deed is men tioned i n 1735 as one of 52 that had not been recorded. (Brunswick Co . Virgini a 1735, July 3. Land Record. Source Brunswick Order Book 1 pag e 99, entr y of 52 deeds on 3 July 1735. Full text below.)

Brunswick Co., Virginia, was formed in 1720 from Prince George County, V i rginia, but, because of the sparse population, a county government wa s n ot organized until 1732. Accord in g to Early Settlers of Mecklenburg Co, Virginia, “When Brunswick Co . wa s first cut from Prince George Co. in 1720, jurisdiction was to rema in i n the Court of Prince George Co. until a government for the county w as or ganized. .... The first meeting of a court for Brunswick was not he ld unt il 2 May 1732. It is assumed that deeds, wills and other document s wer e recorded in Prince George Co. prior to the meeting of the first c ourt i n 1732. It is believed that some of these deeds recorded during t his per iod were lost because of the entry below. At a later date, someon e in th e Clerk's Office wrote on the margin of this page '52 deeds appar ently no t recorded'."

A deed from Thomas Wilson to Michael Cadet Young was one of the 52 dee d s not recorded: Brunswick Co. Virginia 1735, July 3. Land Record. Sour c e Brunswick Order Book 1 page 99, entry of 52 deeds on 3 July 1735. "T ho mas Wilson came into Court & presented & acknowledged deeds of leas e & re lease to Mason Bishop, Michael C. Young, James Rigby, Richard Rams ey, Cha rles Golstone, John Fountain, Robert Andrews, Henry Beverly, Joh n Merrit t, Samuel Crawley, John Adcock, Henry Morris, Samuel Manning, Jo hn Blacks tone, Richard York, Thomas Couch Jr., Benjamin Boing, Wm. Couch , James Co uch, John Barnes, John Thomason, Richard Watts, Patrick Dorum , Seth Petty pool, Thomas Shelton, John Wilson, Philip Morgan, John Thoma son Jr., Jame s Dockery, Thomas Rawlins, William Douglas, James Arnold, M atthew Creed , Aaron Johnson, John Humphries, Henry Rottenberry Jr., Wm F letcher, Thom as Robertson, Aaron Pinson, Joseph Coleson, Robert Alen, Fr ancis Rayney , Joseph Dunman,Thomas Haney, John Mealey, Wm. Pennington, H enry Rottenbu ry Senr., and William Manning, which at the motion of th e said Mason Bis hop, Michael Cadet Young and all if the aforenamed perso ns they are order ed to be recorded."

Family lore says that Michael Cadet Young was a surveyor. I have not fo u nd any evidence of this, but early Virginia surveys were apparently dis ca rded after a few years and are no longer in the records. (The Virgini a La nd Office (Research Notes Number 20) < http://www.lva.lib.va.us/what wehav e/land/rn20_landoffice.htm> accessed October 20, 2008.)

We do know, however, that Michael Cadet Young was an attorney. Accordi n g to The Cabells and their kin : a memorial volume of history, biograp h y and genealogy, Alexander Brown, Boston and New York, Houghton, Miffl i n & co (1895), pages: 46-47, Michael Cadet Young was qualified to pract ic e law in Goochland Co., Virginia, in 1742. This is confirmed in Gooch lan d County, Virginia, court order book 5, 1741-1745, by Ann Kicker Blom quis t, Westminster, Md. : Heritage Books, 2007, at page 129:

[132] "At a court held for Goochland County the Third Tuesday in Octob e r being the 19 day of the month Anno Domini 1742. . . . Attorneys swor n M ichael Cadet Young, William Battersby, Clermont Read & Gideon Marr At torn ys take the oath appointed to be taken by the last Act of Assembly."

Permission to practice law in those days was granted by the individual c o unty courts. I assume Michael Cadet Young was also a practicing attorn e y in other counties even though we have only found his admission to pra ct ice in Goochland. Michael Cadet Young witnessed a fair number of lan d tr ansactions in Brunswick County. It is possible that he drafted th e trans fer documents and then witnessed the signings as part of his la w practice .

In 1748, MCY was on the poll lists in Brunswick County: The William a n d Mary Quarterly, Vol. 26, July 1917, pages 62 and 64, source Brunswic k C ounty, Virginia Deed Book 3 (1744-1749) Page 513, 515
Pole for Drury Stith--Michael Young [among a long list of others]
Pole for Sterling Clack--Michael Young [among a long list of others]

I assume MCY was listed twice because he owned at least two parcels of l a nd.

The fact that none of MCY’s sons appeared on the poll lists in 1748 mea n s that they were not eligible to vote in 1748. Only white men, age 2 1 an d older, who owned property, or rented substantial farms, were permi tte d to vote in Colonial Virginia. (“Entailing Aristocracy in Colonia l Virgi nia: ‘Ancient Feudal Restraints’ and Revolutionary Reform,† Holly Brewer , William and Mary Quarterly, 3rd Ser., Vol. 54, No. 2 (Ap r., 1997), pp . 307-346)

In his 1937 book, The Young Family of Bristol, pages 5 -13, Walter J. Y o ung portrayed Michael Cadet Young as part of the landed Virginia aristo cr acy with vast land holdings in Virginia and South Carolina. This is n o t accurate. Although Michael Cadet Young did own land, the extent of h i s holdings was greatly exaggerated by Walter Young.

For example, Walter Young said (at page 6) that Michael Cadet Young own e d the “Middle Plantation” at the site of present-day Columbia, Sou th Car olina. This is not accurate. South Carolina land records for the p eriod 1 720-1785 do exist, with the originals in Charleston, and microfil m copie s in the South Carolina Department of Archives and History (Colum bia). Th ere is absolutely no record that Michael Cadet Young ever owne d land in S outh Carolina. In addition, the land MCY was said to have ow ned -- th e current site of Columbia, South Carolina -- was actuall y owned by th e Taylor family, not MCY. (A History of Richland County So uth Carolina, V ol. 1, 1732-1805, Edwin L. Green.) There also are no lan d records of an y significance for MCY’s son, LeGros Young, in South Ca rolina. In fact , LeGros Young was probably an employee of the Taylor fa mily.

Walter Young also inflated Michael Cadet Young’s landholdings in Virgin i a by, among other things, listing property that MCY had patented or pu rc hased with partners Drury Stith and Henry Morris as if the property ha d b een solely owned by MCY. Without having a copy of their partnershi p agre ement it is impossible to know what share Michael Cadet Young ha d in th e property he acquired with Stith and Morris, but he certainly wa sn’t th e sole owner.

Walter Young was also wrong when he wrote that MCY “had 540 families o f i ndentured servants working for him on his various properties. . . .† In a ddition, Walter was wrong when he wrote that as late as 1770, MC Y had “5 4 tithes” on his properties in Cumberland Parish, Lunenbur g County. (Youn g, pages 11 and 14.)

Giving Walter Young the benefit of the doubt, he apparently believed (a n d I quote) that “[a] tithe represents 10 families of servants . . . . ” (Y oung, p. 11.) Hence the “540 families of indentures servants.† In realit y, however, each tithe represented one taxable individual, n ot 10 familie s. Taxable individuals were white males ages 16 and over , including fami ly members, employees and indentured servants; and mal e and female slave s ages 16 and over. (Sunlight on the Southside, List s of Tithes, Lunenb urg County, Virginia 1748-1783, Landon C. Bell, Cle arfield Company, Phil adelphia, 1931, p. 49; see also, Colonial Tithable s (Research Notes Numbe r 17), Library of Virginia, accessed on October 20, 2008)

Unfortunately, it is more difficult to give Walter Young the benefit o f t he doubt on the “54 tithes.” As far as I can tell, no one has ev er foun d a single tithes list for Michael Cadet Young. In addition, nei ther MC Y nor his son Thomas Cadet Young was on the existing lists in Lun enburg C ounty during the 1760s, including 1769. The 1770 and 1771 list s were los t long ago. (Landon Bell, 1931.) In other words, Walter Youn g had nothin g on which to base his statement about the 54 tithes.

Son Thomas Cadet Young was on the Lunenburg lists from 1772 through 177 6 , but he was listed in the household of Roger Atkinson. Other documen t s show that Thomas was an overseer for Roger Atkinson. (Original docume n t in the Kennedy Collection, UNC Chapel Hill, copy in paper file; an d Su nlight on the Southside, Lists of Tithes, Lunenburg County, Virgini a 17 48-1783, Landon C. Bell, Clearfield Company, Philadelphia, 1931, pa ges 29 6, 317, 327, 348, and 396.) As a result, the tithes for those y ears be longed to Roger Atkinson, not to the Cadet Young family. Despit e this fa ct, Walter Young essentially took Roger Atkinson’s tithes ove r a multi-ye ar period and attributed them to MCY. This becomes clear wh en you compar e the figures Walter Young listed for MCY, “6 tithes in o ne parish, 11 i n another, 11 in another and 26 in another” (Young a t p. 11) with Roge r Atkinson’s Lunenburg tithes -- 26 tithes for 177 2 and 11 tithes eac h year for 1773, 1774, 1775, and 1776 -- on the Atk inson land managed b y Thomas Cadet Young. (Bell, pages 296, 317, 327, 3 48, and 396.)

It is hard to know whether Walter Young’s statements about the tithes r ep resented his own incompetence or whether they represented genealogy fr au d on the part of his paid researcher. In either case, the statements a bou t the tithes, and the other clearly inaccurate statements about MCY⠀™s la nd ownership in South Carolina, bring into question the accuracy o f every thing Walter Young wrote about Michael Cadet Young’s land holdi ngs.

What we do know from the record is that Michael Cadet Young owned at lea s t 684 acres in Brunswick County by 26 Apr 1743, when he sold the proper t y “where Young now lives” to J. Parish under a mortgage. (Brunswic k Co. D eed Book 2, 618(355) 26 Apr 1743.) It is reasonable to assume th at MCY e ither owned other land at the time of the sale or purchased othe r land sh ortly thereafter because his property was mentioned in Octobe r of 1743, a s a boundary-line for other property in Brunswick County. (E xtracts Fro m Drury Stith’s Entry Record Book. 1737-1770, Chiarito, Ma rian Dodson . p.10: 28 Oct 1743 Wm Macby enters 400 acres both sides Mi dway adj Mic h. Youngs upper line. Transferred to James & Mathias Macby . )

I have records of land transactions from about 1736 through November o f 1 755 involving Michael Cadet Young -- sometimes in his individual ca paci ty and sometimes in partnership with Stith and Morris. Rather tha n recit ing the transactions here, I have listed them in rough chronologi cal orde r later in these notes. There are clearly gaps in the record s I have, bu t I suspect that the missing records reflect relatively mode st land trans actions.

The overall picture the land records present to me is one of a comfortab l e middleclass farmer with enough extra to engage in a bit of land specu la tion on the side. He certainly wasn’t a member of Virginia’s land ed gent ry. The more interesting question is, “What happened in the 17 50’s to ba nkrupt Michael Cadet Young?”

We know from his personal letters that MCY was destitute in 1767, owni n g nothing except "a mare, saddle and cart" (1 February 1767, letter) . Hi s situation was also clear from his letter of December 1769 in whic h he c hastised his son Thomas Cadet Young for failing to visit, statin g that Th omas “ undoubtedly would have [visited] if I had an estate t o leave behin d me, but as I have nothing, I am dispised [sic] and forgot .” MCY also p leaded with Thomas to collect a small debt owed to him b y Mr. Hudgins, “I nclosed [sic] is a letter to Mr. Hudgin which [I] be g you’ll give to him , it is to demand ten shillings of him at once fo r he owes me twenty mor e which is thirty in all and if it suits him to p ay the whole I shall b e glad to receive it, if not, ten will suffice fo r the present for I am i n great need of that quantity of money and can†™t tell what to do withou t it.” (Originals of letters in the Manuscrip ts Department Library of th e University of North Carolina at Chapel Hil l Southern Historical Collect ion #3242 Mary Hunter Kennedy Papers (Kenn edy Collection). Copies of or iginals in my paper file. Transcription be low.)

I think something happened to MCY in the 1750s that wiped him out financ i ally. We know from his letters that there was court action, probabl y i n the mid-1750s that resulted in a judgment against him. In his Febr uar y 1, 1767, letter, MCY wrote to Thomas, "I expect now a prosecuti on a gainst me daily for a debt which I thought I had clear of and was a ccept ed in Col. Stith’s hands, but contrary to that, I was served wit h a Scir e Facias to renew the judgment." (Letter in Kennedy collectio n and pape r file. Transcription below.)

A judgment debt expires after a certain period -- often 6 to 12 yea r s -- unless a court action is brought to renew the judgment. In th e ol d days, a scire facias was one way to renew a judgment. The fact t ha t a scire facias was beingrought against MCY in 1767 seems to indica t e that a judgment had been entered against him in the 1750s and that t h e last payment on the judgment had been about 1755/1757. (I believe co lo nial Virginia used a 10 or 12 year period for judgments.) In addition , t he underlying judgment probably was substantial, perhaps having to d o wit h a land deal or mortgage, otherwise it would not have been worth t he tim e and expense to file and prosecute the scire facias.

The last land transaction involving Michael Cadet Young as a seller or b u yer seems to have been in 1755 when he transferred land to Buckner Stit h . (General Index to Deeds. Vol. A. 1732-1881. Brunswick County, Virg in ia, 555: Buckner Stith From Michael Cadet Young & C Deed 1755 5-744 ) . In November of 1755 Temperance Young released her dower rights in la n d transferred by MCY to Buckner Stith. This was probably in the same l an d. (Brunswick Co. Deed Book 5, p. 744; and Order Book 5, p. 503. 25 N ove mber 1755.)

Although it is not clear from the land records, this transfer to Buckn e r Stith may have been in satisfaction of the debt MCY mentioned in hi s 17 67 letter. The debt MCY thought he was “clear of and was accepte d in Col . Stith’s hands.”

In 1756, MCY also sold his personal belongings (Brunswick County Deed b o ok 6, 56-(88), 58 (90), 28 Feb and l Mar 1756). This is highly unusua l a nd is another indication that Michael Cadet Young was in dire financi al s traits by the mid-1750’s.

I don’t know where Michael Cadet Young was or what he did from 1755 t o ab out 1760. I am fairly sure that MCY and Temperance had several chil dre n still living with them -- probably John, Martha, William, perhap s Mic hael Jr., and possibly others. Their oldest sons, Francis and Thoma s, wer e in their mid-twenties and newly married. It is possible that MC Y and f amily lived with one of them.

MCY’s son Thomas was working as a factor or manager for John Bennett i n L unenburg County as late as 1767 (letter in Kennedy Collection and pap er f ile), so it is reasonable to believe that Michael Cadet Young migh t hav e worked in a similar capacity for a large landowner in the area . Despit e his financial difficulties, MCY was highly literate and undo ubtedly a n experience manager. As a factor or plantation manager, MCY w ould hav e been provided descent living quarters for his family.

In 1760, MCY’s son, Michael Cadet Young, Jr., bought a small farm “ad join ing Little Creek” in Brunswick County:

Brunswick County, Virginia, Deed Book 6, page 505: Indenture made the 25 t h day of April, 1760, between Samuel Wiggen and Michal Young, Junior, f o r 16 pounds, conveying 150 acres, adjoining Little Creek and land of Ja me s Harwill, and being same land granted to Marmaduke Daniel on May 19 , 175 7. Witnesses were Allen Love, Randall Bracey, and Thomas Singleton . Inden ture proved by the oaths of the witnesses in Court on April 28, 1 760.

It appears that MCY and Temperance moved in with Michael Cadet Jr. and h i s wife Lucy about 1760, because Michael Cadet Young, Jr.’s, 1762 wil l lef t his parents and wife Lucy a life estate in the property. (Brunsw ick Co ., Virginia, Will Book 4, pt.2 198-(278) Will of Michaiel [sic] Y oung Jr . of St. Andrew's Parish 5 Feb. 1762, probate 22 March 1762.) T his is p robably where MCY spent the last 9 years of his life.

On 30 Nov 1760, MCY witnessed the will of Amy Gilliam and proved it in c o urt on 28 March 1763. (Brunswick Will Book 4, pt.2, 227 (323) Will of A m y Gilliam 30 Nov 1760, 28 March 1763. Witnessed by Mychaile Cadle [si c ] Young, Mary Vaughn, William Vaughn. Proved by Michaiel Cadle [sic] Y ou ng , 28 March 1763.) Amy Gilliam appears to have been the widow of Ja me s Gilliam. I don’t know what, if any, connection the Gilliam’s ha d to MC Y.

On September 9, 1761, MCY witnessed a deed between Richard Vaughan, t h e Younger, and John Westmoreland (Brunswick Co. Deed Book 7, Page 16.)

Michael and two of his sons were on the Poll Lists in Brunswick Co. fo r 1 768:

Brunswick Co., Deed Book 9, pp. 279-83: Poll 2 December 1768.
Young Francis
Young Michael Cadet
Young Thomas

The last dated MCY letter in the Kennedy Collection is from December 2 2 , 1769. In that letter MCY wrote to his son Thomas about MCY’s impe ndin g death, “I feel the lamp of life decaying every day; my breath gr ows sho rter and shorter, so that I can’t sport myself the least as ca n be, not e ven walk but with great difficulty for the want of breath.† There is ano ther undated letter, clearly from the same period, and , I believe, writte n shortly after the December 22, 1769, letter. In th is final letter, MC Y asks Thomas to promise “that you will take good c are of your poor indig ent mother and suffer her not to want in her old a ge. . . .” (Letters i n Kennedy Collection and my paper file. Transcrip tion below.)

When he died in late December 1769 or perhaps early January 1770, Micha e l Cadet Young had no estate to probate. According to The Young Famil y o f Bristol, this was because MCY had transferred his “vast estate† to hi s sons, Michael Jr., Thomas, LeGros, and Francis, before his deat h, howev er, this is not supported by the record. There is nothing to sh ow that M CY ever transferred anything to his sons and none of them was e speciall y well off during the years before MCY’s death.

For example, Michael Cadet Young, Jr., owned 150 acres when he died in 1 7 62. This was land he had purchased in 1760. (Brunswick Co., Virginia , W ill Book 4, pt.2 198-(278); and Brunswick County, Virginia, Deed Boo k 6 , page 505) Thomas Cadet Young was employed as a factor for John Ben net t in 1769 and owned a total of 350 acres and one slave. (Kennedy Col lect ion: undated MCY letter, 1769 will of Thomas Cadet Young, copies i n my pa per file.) Thomas’ land was purchased in November, 1761, fro m John Pilki nton. (Brunswick County Deed Book 7, Page 47.) LeGros Youn g left a mini mal estate when he died intestate in 1787. (Camden District , S.C., will s and administration, 1781-1787, Brent Holcomb, Elmer Parker , 1978, p. 67 : Young, LeGros At. 76, Pck 2712.) Francis Cadet Young’ s first land purc hase was 50 acres from his father-in-law James Bennet t in February of 176 1 and his subsequent land purchases were modest an d do not appear to hav e had any connection with his father. (Brunswick C ounty Deed Book 6, pag e 619; Deed Book 4, Page 205; Deed Book 7, Page 10 9; and Deed Book 8 pag e 125.)

MCY’s wife, Temperance survived him and was alive as late as Februar y o f 1782 when she was mentioned in a letter from LeGros Young to his br othe r Thomas Cadet Young (see file for Temperance).

(II) John, supposed to be the eldest son of William Mead, was born
about 1634, and was an infant on his arrival in America. He accompanied
his father to Stamford, whence he removed, as above related, to
Hempstead, and in 1660 he settled in Greenwich, Connecticut, where
he purchased from Richard Crabb, October 26 of that year, houses and
lands, including two dwellings and a barn, eighteen acres of upland and
fourteen acres of meadow. He was propounded for freeman at
Greenwich in 1670, and was a member of the assembly from that town
in 1679-80 and 1686 and was constable in 1687. The latter office was
one of trust and responsibility in that day and involved the collectio n o f
taxes. The first settlement of Greenwich was made on Elizabeth Neck,
now called "Sound Beach" and John Mead was one of the twenty-seven
purchasers from the Indians of lands then and now called "Horseneck".
Here his descendants have dwelt until the present day. He was a
member of a committee appointed to secure materials for building a
meeting house and this house was erected in 1691, near the spot now
occupied by the Congregational church. He died February 5, 1699, and
is supposed to have been buried in the old burying ground at Greenwich,
which has since been plowed up and all marks obliterated. He made two
wills, March 6, 1696, one of which conveyed his real estate to his sons
and the other his personal property to all his children. In that day a w i ll
conveying real estate was required to be recorded in the town where
the property lay, and this is probably the reason for making a separate
will regarding the real estate. He married, about 1657, Hannah,
daughter of William Potter, of Stamford, Connecticut, who afterward
owned "Shippan Point" and through this marriage John Mead came into
possession of considerable real estate.
Children: John, Joseph, Hannah, Ebenezer, Jonathan,
David, Benjamin, Nathaniel, Samuel, Abigail, Mary.

Historical Atlas of the World Illustrated, H.H. Hardesty & Co. Publishers, Chicago, 1875
This atlas has a history of Wood County, Ohio, including biographies, charts, maps,
and illustrations. Hiram Pember and Harriet Arnold married for their second marriages.
His biography is listed under Freedom Twp section of the atlas. I believe the line
"They had eight children - Elizabeth, Catharine, ..." refers to children Hiram Pember
had with Matilda Heath, not Harriet Arnold Walters Pember.
(found in Ancestry.com page number not listed)
HIRAM PEMBER. Justice of the Peace of Freedom Township for twenty-
one years, has also filled the office of constable, township treasurer. township trus-
tee, and member of board of education. His parents, Ethan and Clarissa Pember,
were among the first settlers in the county, removing from Clinton County. New
York, in 1834. They had seven children, of whom Hiram and Lovina are living,
and C——, Betsey. Jane, Franklin and Herman are dead. Mr. Pember has been
twice married. His first wife was Matilda Heath, born in Livingston County, New
York, in 1812. Her father was Stephen Heath. He had a large family—Chester,
Lovina, Louisa, Matilda, Stephen, Harrison, Truman, Rehecca, Horace. Clarissa,
Fannie and Mary. For his second wife Mr. Pember married Harriet Arnold, who
was born in Dayton, Ohio, in 1822. She was a daughter of Ephraim and Eleanor
Arnold. who died in Maryland. They had eight children — Elizabeth, Catharine,
Mary, John, Sarah, Susan, Ellen and Harriet. Hiram Pember was born in Clinton
County, New York, in 1811. He is the oldest living settler in the township. He
had the honor of suggesting the name Freedom for the township, and Pemberville
was named after the Pember family. Mr. Pember claims to have raised the
largest crop of wheat, caught more fish and shot more deer than any other man in
the township.

I have located William's Revolutionary War pension file and discovered t h at William died in Henderson Co., Tennessee, not Sumner Co., Tennessee , a s Cowles and Walter J. Young reported and I repeated.
From what I can tell now, William was never near Sumner Co. So, please c o rrect the info about William in Thomas Cadet Young's file to show tha t h e died 26 July 1835 in Henderson Co., Tennessee. In addition, there i s n o question that William married Margaret McCord, not Mary or Polly Mc Cord . ~Janice McAlpine "Mcalpage" 2007.


Prepared July 30, 2007, by Janice McAlpine, 2345 Oleander Street, Bat o n Rouge, Louisiana 70806. E-mail: macalpage@cox.net

William Young: b. 8 September 1764, Brunswick or Lunenburg Co. , V irginia, died 26 July 1835, Henderson Co., Tennessee.

William’s birth date is from the Young Family Bible Records, Years: 173 2- 1853, North Carolina State Archives, Raleigh, N.C., (Call Number: 2 A , MA RS Id: 400.1.1.2167 (Folder)), a transcription of which was publi shed as , Young-Houston-Dalton Bible, 1793-1853, Genealogical Soci ety of R owan Co., NC, Journal Vol. 7, No. 4, Dec 1993, p. 139. The dat e is als o listed in William’s Revolutionary War Pension Application (c opy in pape r file).

In his pension application, William stated that he was born in Brunswi c k Co., Virginia. I am not sure this is accurate. His father, Thomas C ad et Young, was in Lunenburg Co., Virginia, in 1763 working as a oversee r f or Roger Atkinson, and was still in Lunenburg Co. in 1768 when Michae l Ca det Young addressed a letter to him there (see file for Thomas Cade t Youn g).

Although Calvin Duvall Cowles stated in Memorial And Family Tree o f M ichael Cadet Young, of Brunswick County, Va. and of His Descendants F ro m 16__to 1895, that William married “Polly McCord,” this inf ormatio n is not accurate. William actually married Margaret McCord, bor n 18 Apr il 1769 (pension file). The marriage took place at her father†™s residenc e in Surry Co., North Carolina, on 17 October 1789 (pension f ile).
There is no possibility that Margaret was called “Mary” or Polly” b ecaus e she had a younger sister by that name.

According to the James McCord Family Bible, which lists the names and bi r th dates of the McCord children, Margaret was born 1769 and Mary was bo r n 1771 (original in the possession of Mrs. Joetta Ross Dobbs of Salina , K ansas, copy in paper file and on-line at : ). Mary “Polly” McCord married 13 Februar y 1798, N orth Carolina, to Edward Patrick/Fitzpatrick (information fro m descendent s).

[NOTE: the following is unconfirmed, but probably fairly accurate. Som e o f it appears to come from a brief family history written by James T . McCo rd of Splitlog, Missouri, which can be accessed at < http://www.ge ocities .com/sjperez_2000/Mccord.html >. ] James McCord was b: 27 July 1 741 in S tewart, Tyrone County, Ireland, d. 4 November 1824 in Spring Cre ek, Overt on Co, TN. His wife, Jane Scruggs/Scroggs, was b: 18 April 175 0 in Penns ylvania, d. 1 November 1789, in Iredell, NC. They were marrie d 1767/176 8 in Wilkes Co., NC.

There is colorful biographical information about James McCord in late 19 t h and early 20th century biographies of descendents. (See for example , < i>The Biographical Record of Dewitt County, Illinois, Chicago: Th e S . J. Clarke Publishing co. 1901. John Henry McCord pages 330-332.)

Some researchers list a second marriage for William Young to Rebecca Bug g , but Margaret McCord survived her husband by roughly 20 years (pensio n f ile). The William Young who married Rebecca Bugg was actually the so n o f John Young and Elizabeth Andrews.

According to his pension file, William was living in Rowan Co. NC, in 17 8 0, when he enlisted in the North Carolina Militia. He lived there unt i l 1808 and then moved to Overton Co. Tennessee for 2 years. He was i n Li ncoln Co, Tennessee for 11 Years. He then moved to Alabama for 6 y ears . His final move was to Henderson County, Tennessee, where he was l ivin g on 16 Aug 1833 when he applied for his pension.

William and Margaret’s children, as listed in the pension application , we re:
A. Thomas Armstead Young b: 28 March 1790
B. James Alfred Young b: 5 March 1792
C. Calvin H. Young b: 16 December 1794
D. Archibald Cadet Young b: 25 April 1797
E. Henry Franklin Young b: 12 December 1799
F. Amanda Lucy Young b: 6 February 1802
G. Theodore Gillaid Young b: 14 April 1804
H. Orvil W. Young b: 4 July 1807
I. John Alphonzo Young b: 7 January 1810
J. Adaline Jennette Young b: 22 December 1812

Although William’s pension application said that he lived in Rowan Co. , b efore his move to Tennessee, William was actually living in Iredell C o. , North Carolina, for the 1800 census and I believe he also was in Ire del l Co. for the 1790 census, listed on the same page as his father Thom as Y oung and his father-in-law James McCord:
:
1790 > NORTH CAROLINA > IREDELL > SALISBURY DIST Series: M637 Ro l l: 7 Page: 400
James McCord 1 3 6 0 0 [1 wm over 16; 3 wm under 16; 6 wf; no oth e r free persons, no slaves]
Thomas Young 2 3 2 0 13 [2 wm over 16; 3 wm under 16; 2 wf; no o t her free persons, 13 slaves.]
William Young 2 1 1 0 1 [2wm over 16; 1 wm under 16; 1 wf ; no othe r f ree persons, 1 slave] [The white male under 16 was probably Thomas A . You ng, born March 1790. The other white male over 16 might have bee n a broth er for William or Margaret.]

There also was a William Young in Rowan Co., North Carolina, however , h e was living next to Samuel Young who was from an unrelated Young fam ily:

YOUNG, Samuel 4 1 0 1 11
YOUNG, William 1 1 3 0 1

The Virginia Genealogist, Vol 23, pp 34-35., pp 195-197, lists se v eral Iredell Co., North Carolina, land transactions involving the Jon e s family. One, from September of 1794, involved William Young and vario u s relatives by marriage. “23 September 1794 William Young deeded to P rett yman Jones for 120 pounds 300 acres of land on south side of Huntin g Cree k adjoining Creek Martin & Butter’s line. Witness to the deed we re Andre w Carson and James McCord.”

Andrew Carson, witness to the above transaction, was married to William†™ s sister, Temperance Young. Witness James McCord was Margaret McCord†™s f ather. In addition, Prettyman Jones was related by marriage to Willi am’ s niece, Elizabeth Adeline Moody Cass, daughter of Mary Ann Youn g Moody.

William was living in Iredell Co. for the 1800 census. His brother Arch i bald was living next door:

William Young 41110//0001 plus 4 slaves [The sons were Henry, Archibal d , James, Calvin, and Thomas. I am not sure who the extra young man was .]
Archibald Young 31010//2001 plus 4 slaves

William Young was not on the 1810 census in North Carolina. Accordin g t o his pension application, he was in Overton Co., Tennessee. Becaus e th e Tennessee 1810 census is missing, I was not able to confirm Willia m’s p resence in Overton Co., however, his brother-in-law James McCor d Jr. repo rtedly married in Overton County, March 29, 1804. (The Bio graphical R ecord of Dewitt County, Illinois, Chicago: The S. J. Clar ke Publishin g co. 1901. John Henry McCord pages 330-332) In addition , various McCor d relative, including Mary and Edward Fitzpatrick, were o n the 1820 censu s in Overton Co., and James McCord Sr. died there in 18 24. So, it seem s likely that William moved to Overton Co. with the McCo rds

According to his pension application, William Young moved to Lincoln Co . , Tennessee, before 1820. There were two William Youngs on the 1820 cen su s in Lincoln Co., Tennessee. I assume the first is the correct Willia m b ecause he had children in the right age ranges in his household whil e th e other did not:

William Young 021101//10101
Page: 148
William Young 000001/00001 [plus 1 slave]

Although William was in Alabama for 6 years between the 1820 and 1830 ce n suses, I have not been able to locate the family. It is possible tha t so me of William and Margaret’s older sons remained in Alabama, but t his i s just a guess.

William was on the 1830 census in Henderson Co., Tennessee, as was his s o n-in-law Laban Menefee, who married Amanda Lucy Young:

Laban Manafee 11001//1001 no slaves

William died in Henderson Co., Tennessee, on 26 July 1835 (pension file).

William’s sons Orville and John were on the 1840 census in Henderson C o . I believe Margaret McCord Young was living with her son John Young.

I have not been able to trace all of the children listed in the pensio n f ile. It is possible that some died young. Here is what I have on Wil lia m and Margaret McCord Young’s children:

A.. Thomas Armstead Young b: 28 MAR 1790, Iredell Co., North Caro l ina.

Thomas is a very common Young family name. I have not been able to conf i rm any information about William and Margaret’s Thomas. It is possib le t hat he died early or, given his age, that he did not accompany th e famil y to Tennessee. It is also possible that he remained in Alabam a when th e family moved back to Tennessee.

B. James Alfred Young b: 5 MAR 1792, Iredell Co., North Carolina.

I have not been able to confirm anything about William and Margaret’s s o n James. It is possible that he died early or, given his age, that h e r emained in Alabama when the family moved back to Tennessee.

C. Calvin H. Young
b: 16 DEC 1794, Iredell Co., North Carolina. I h a ve nothing about Calvin. It is possible that he died early or, given h i s age, that he remained in Alabama when the family moved back to Tenne ss ee.

D. Archibald Cadet Young b: 25 APR 1797, Iredell Co., North Carol i na.

Archibald is a common Young family name. I have not been able to confi r m any information about William and Margaret’s Archibald. It is poss ibl e that he died early or, given his age, that he remained in Alabam a whe n the family moved back to Tennessee.

E. Henry Franklin Young b: 12 DEC 1799, Iredell Co., North Caroli n a.

I do not have any information about Henry. It is possible that he died e a rly or, given his age, that he remained in Alabama when the family mov e d back to Tennessee.

F. Amanda Lucy Young or Lucy Amanda Young b: 6 FEB 1802, Iredel l /Rowan Co., North Carolina, d. after 1850 Leon Co., Texas. Married: 18 2 2 to Laban or William Laban Menefee, who d. bef. 20 December 1844 in H ou ston, Harris Co., Texas. He was buried in Cedar Bayou or White Oak Bayou Cemetery, Harris Co., Texas

All on-line information about this couple says that they married in Mill e dgeville, Baldwin Co., Georgia, but that seems unlikely. Although ther e i s a Milledgeville in Baldwin Co., there also is one in McNairy Co., T enne ssee, just over the line from Henderson Co., Tennessee, where the fa mil y was for the 1830 census. It is also possible that the couple marrie d du ring the Young family’s 6 year sojourn in Alabama between 1820 an d 1830 a nd lived near Milledgeville, Tennessee, at some point.

William Young and family were in Henderson Co., Tennessee for the 1830 c e nsus, as were Amanda and Laban Menefee.

1830 > TENNESSEE > HENDERSON > NO TWP LISTED Series: M19 Roll: 1 7 7 Page: 76
Laban Manafee 11001//1001 no slaves

Although descendents say that children born in 1828 and 1831 were bor n i n Hardeman Co., Tennessee, I cannot find any evidence that the famil y act ually was in Hardeman during that period. In any event, the Menefe e fami ly moved from Tennessee to Texas before 1838. Their move may hav e coincid ed with the move to Texas by Amanda’s first cousin John Wyat t Moody (se e notes for Mary Ann Young). John Wyatt Moody was the firs t treasurer o f the Republic of Texas and also died in Houston, Harris C o., Texas, whe re William Menefee died. The families undoubtedly knew ea ch other in Tex as.

William Laban Menefee has been confused with the more famous William Chr i stian Menefee, who signed the Texas Declaration of Independence. This c on fusion goes beyond on-line genealogies that routinely give William Chr ist ian Menefee’s birth date, May 11, 1796, for William Laban Menefee . For e xample, Families of Falls County, compiled and edited b y the Fall s County Historical Commission, page 45 column 1 and 2, say s that Willia m Laban Menefee was a signer of the Texas Declaration of In dependence. Th ere also is a historical marker in Johnson Co., Texas, tha t says:

MENEFEE REUNION

Marker Text:
Yearly gathering of heirs of colonists entering America 1623. Wm. L. Men e fee, ancestor of this branch of the family, migrated to Texas 1830; sig ne d Declaration of Independence 1836; was on the commission selecting Ca pit al site at present-day Austin. He served 6 terms in Congress of Repub li c of Texas, one term in the State Legislature. His sons, H. F. and th e Re v. W. O. Menefee, were early settlers in Johnson County. The famil y has p roduced many jurists, soldiers, political leaders, ministers. Th e reunion , started in 1890, has been held here since 1891.

Neither Families of Falls County nor the historical marker is co r rect. William Christian Menefee, b. May 11, 1796, Tenne ss ee, d.

"The story I am going to tell you girls and boys this morning is a sket c h of a family, just one of the many families who helped to make Texas H is tory and it happened almost a hundred years ago.

In the year 1833, a number of families came from [Mureborough?], Tenness e e to Texas. They had been given large tracts of land. This was to indu c e more people to come into the state. Among these people were my grea t gr andfather, William Seton Menefee and his brother-in-law, John Marlin . The y settled at old Fort Marlin just below the City of Waco today, i n fact , these people built the Fort and it took its name after John Marl in. M y grandfather was a small boy of three years of age.

These people set to work to protect themselves from the Indians. They cu l tivated a few acres of corn and laid in a supply of fuel and food to ke e p them through the coming winter. They remained at the Fort for two yea rs , and they were certainly hard years, with bitter cold winters and a n umb er of Indian attacks.

NOTE: C. - 12. Texas

My great grandmother Amanda Menefee, though a mother of five children, w a s also a woman doctor and spent most of her time in doctoring and nursi n g the sick and wounded. She left her children in the care of a negro gi r l and a negro boy about eighteen years of age whom she had brought ou t he re from Tennessee.

In the latter part of the year 1834 or perhaps the first part of the ye a r 1835, the Indians made a most brutal attack on the old Fort. Rumors h a d come to the Fort during the day that numbers of Indians were hiding o ut side in and among the trees, so it was thought best for all the wome n an d children to come together in my great grandfather's house and Joh n Marl in's. They had built their houses together with just a long hall b etween . As night began to fall most all of the people came together in t his hou se. Men were stationed to watch on the outside. It was a very col d nigh t and they were forced to have some fire, someone, forgetting tha t the sm oke from the chimney would tell the Indians where the people ha d hidden , had built a large fire in the open fireplace and a large pot o f old fas hioned hominy hung from the [?] over the fire. The rest of th e Fort was d ark, no smoke could be seen, as the people talked quietly an d listened fo r any sound, there came into the room an arrow from a smal l opening in th e window close to the fireplace. The few men in the roo m ran for their gu ns and some of the women did too. The mothers hid thei r children the bes t they could. My grandfather, a very small boy, rememb ered the attack, bu t could not remember where he was hid whether it wa s under a bed or behin d a large trunk.

Most of the men went outside and slipped behind trees for protection. T w o of the women in the room were instantly killed, one woman fainted wh e n she saw two Indians come in at the window, and she fell as if she we r e dead also. The Indians scalped the two dead women, and while they we r e doing the scalping, the woman who had fainted came to, but she did n o t move when she saw what they were doing. For some reason they did no t bo ther her, but it was said she had the most beautiful hair. The men f inall y drove the Indians away. It was not until about three o'clock th e next a fternoon before the people began to come back to the house. Tha t night th ey did not have a fire and worked most of the night burying th e dead an d dressing the wounded. My great-grandfather was shot in the le g.

Some time the next day the negro boy came in. He had hid under the hous e . The negro girl was never found. People supposed she was carried awa y wi th the Indians. There were so few people left that they decided to a bando n the fort and go down to Washington Co. where there were more peop le, s o one night they took what they could and started.

They found a number of people in Washington Co., and they began to hea r o f trouble with Mexico, how as far back as 1824, Santa Ana had made en croa chment upon Texas soil. These had continued and were becoming more f reque nt and distasteful to Texas people.

So, in November and December of the year 1835 people were meeting and ad o pting resolutions for independence. A paper was drawn up and was in th a t year called a "Consultation." Some people did not want independence a lt ogether, but wanted Texas to have State rights under the Mexican Gover nme nt. But the year of 1835 was a year of terrible tragedies to Texas. O n Ma rch 1st, 1836, delegates met at Washington to sign the paper of "Con sulta tion", and to declare outright for Texas Independence. My great gra ndfath er signed this paper and in a few weeks died from pneumonia due t o exposu re. The paper was written by a young lawyer whose name was Geo . C. Childr ess of [Milam], Texas. It was written one year before it wa s signed and w ent into effect, and when signed, not one word was changed . When this pap er was drawn up it would have been impossible to raise a n army of 1000 me n, the enemy was already on Texas soil 10,000 strong. T he little army wou ld only have had shotguns and deer rifles and would ha ve had to depend o n game for food. The enemy was armed with the most imp roved weapons. Tha t was the kind of men Texas had.

My great grandmother at the death of my great grandfather was left wit h f ive children. Three boys and two girls. She had several large tract s of l and, but very little money, if any. She sold some of her land an d moved t o the small town of Houston. Some time after moving to Housto n one son wa ndered away and was not heard of until years after her death . One son Wil liam, and the two girls were put in school in Houston. My g randfather, Fr ank, opened a hardware store, selling mostly tin-ware, goi ng out in all d irections from Houston with his ware. My great grandmothe r practiced medi cine.

At the age of 22 my grandfather, H. F. Menefee married a woman doctor. H i s older brother William, became a Methodist preacher. He married a thir te en year old girl from the girl's College at Houston, whose home was i n th e distant state of California. Their sisters had married also and m y grea t grandmother had passed away. So these two brothers sold their po ssessio ns they had in and around Houston and settled in the year 1856 we st of Cl eburne, Johnson county, on the Nolan River. My grandfather buil t a log ho use at the foot of a hill and his brother built a rock house o ver the hil l at the foot of the same hill. They cultivated land in the v alley runnin g along the Nolan river. My grandfather has shown me a lot o f times the p lace Philip Nolan was supposed to have hidden his gold. Fo r a few years t hese brothers prospered, accumulating a number of stock.

When the civil war came, my grandfather was called to report at Housto n . He left his wife and three babies. He carried an old saber with hi m a s a weapon. When they left Houston on their march to the Texas and Ok laho ma line, they were given guns. These sabers were thrown away. My gra ndfat her picked up one and carried it to his home where he was allowe d a few d ays furlough.
He was away four years of the war, only home once. One night in camp h e f elt things were not right at home. When morning came he asked for a f ew d ays off, as they were not in action he was granted these few days. W hen h e reached home Grandmother had buried their baby girl on the side o f th e hill. She had called in some of the neighbor women and a few men t hat w ere left, like my grandfather's brother, because he was a preacher , and b uried her baby.

I know that my grandmother like a number of other Texas women, must ha v e been wonderful. She cared for the stock, made a little garden and pla nt ed a few acres of corn from which she ground meal for cornbread, care d fo r her babies, often time carrying them all on a horse with her, goin g mil es to some sick one.

One evening just before night she came out on her porch and looking u p t o the top of the hill back of the house she saw one lone Indian man . Sh e went back and put out her fire, thinking he might not come any nea rer i f he did not see smoke, perhaps he would think no one was at home , he wou ld only steal a cow or calf and leave. This he must have done a s he did n ot bother her.

When my grandfather returned home he was forced to sell all his land exc e pt about 200 acres, most all of his cattle, to start again. In a few ye ar s he had his land back in good condition, a goodly number of milk cow s , a good orchard and large grape vineyard, and a part of that time my g ra ndfather was totally blind for two years. But still he raised a larg e fam ily, educated them, making one son a doctor, and that son, my fathe r, Dr . A. J. Menefee of Hillsboro. His brother William also raised a fam ily o f twelve children. Two of them were doctors, Dr. W. E. Menefee, Cle burne , and Dr. E. L. Menefee of Granbury. One son became a missionary t o China . "

(I have not confirmed he r p arents.)

Orvil probably was on the 1830 census living with his parents in Henders o n Co. He and his brother John were living next door to each other in H en derson Co. for the 1840 census. Orvil had 4 children under the age o f 1 0 in his household, probably William, Henry, Emaline, and Orvil Jr.
