Marriage record
John Young
Gender: Male
Marriage Date: 2 Dec 1857
Marriage Place: Arbroath,Angus,Scotland
Spouse: Jane Crawford
FHL Film Number: 6035516

Note, Andrew Wallace's 8th grade project says that the name of Andrew Young's father was Alexander, born 1829, not John, born 1812.  He has Alexander's father named John Young, born 1811, married to Jane Crawford.  This is not what the census and birth records say.

Because the marriage date to Jane Crawford is after the birth of Elizabeth, I assume there was an earlier wife who was the mother of Elizabeth.  Found a marriage record to Margaret Ritchie; Andrew Wallace's project said John Young was married to Margaret Ritchie; and there was a Mary Ritchie, widow, age 57, born Forfarshire, Guthrie, living next door to John & Jane Young in the 1871 census.

Susan YOUNG

Was a "michan"? loom weaver in 1851 census at age 20


Jemma YOUNG

Flax spinner in 1851 census.

Could be Jemima.  There is a birth record for Jemima, dau. of John Young and Margaret Ritchie,


Elisabeth YOUNG

1851 Census- two Elisabeths in the family, one was 13, an errand girl, so birth would be about 1838. Second Elisabeth, age 1 months, birth about 1851.  Don't know which Elizabeth was the one who was still with the famiy in the 1871 census; probably the younger one.


James YOUNG

Scholar in 1851 census.


Ann YOUNG

Scholar in 1851 census


Jean YOUNG

Scholar in 1851 census.  Transcript said name was Jeun, but it looks like Jean to me.

Odd that two girls in the family had the name Elisabeth.  I wonder if the older Elisabeth died before 1851?
