Mr. and Mrs. Noah Young

The tombstone of Noah and Anna Young is found in the older section of Maple Grove Cemetery in New Haven, Ohio in Huron County, Ohio. Noah and Anna Young were the great grandparents of Leroy Parker, in his maternal grandmother's line. Noah and Anna Young were first cousins once removed. Anna was the great granddaughter of Morgan Young, who was born in 1713 in Aberdeen, Scotland, while her husband Noah was the grandson of Morgan Young who was born in 1713 in Scotland. (See OUR YOUNG FAMILY IN AMERICA, by Edward Hudson Young for detailed information about the many descendants of Morgan Young. This title is available full text at Heritage Quest.)

Professor Edward Hudson Young wrote in OUR YOUNG FAMILY IN AMERICA that Noah Young, the son of Morgan and Jane Losey Young, was born in April of 1788 in Essex County, New Jersey. He married Anna Young in North Monroeville, Ohio on March 20, 1811. Noah Young died on his farm just east of New Haven, Ohio on July 5, 1858. Noah Young served as a Corporal in the 6th Ohio Militia during the War of 1812. His commanding officer was his cousin, Capt. Jacob Young.

Anna Young was born on March 23, 1794 in Morris County, New Jersey, the daughter of Nathaniel Mitchell Young and his wife Mary Lewis Young. Anna Young died on April 26, 1886 in Perkins Township, Erie County, Ohio.

I am very grateful to Professor Edward Hudson Young for taking the time to interview many, many Young descendants in the 1940's, so that we may all know more about the family history of our Young ancestors.

I just learned today that the older cemetery is known as the New Haven Cemetery, and Maple Grove is across the road.

I have been researching my family history for a while now. Noah and Anna Young were either my 3rd or 4th great grandparents through Susan Young, then her daughter Harriet Waggoner Mitchell, her son Milburn Mitchell, his daughter, my mother Rosalyn Mitchell Cook. There is some confusion as to whether Susan was their daughter or granddaughter. Can you tell me which is correct? Thank you.

Personally I have only researched Noah and Anna Young's line as carried down through their daughter Mary Ann Young, and her spouse Lindsey House.

But, according to a site on Rootsweb, Susan Young was the granddaughter of Noah and Anna Young.

states that Susan Young was the daughter of Nathaniel Mitchell Young and his first wife, Catherine Tindall.
