I said in my last post concerning William Thomas O’Neil and Ophelia Young that I was planning to move forward a generation, but I forgot I said that and went backwards instead.
Ophelia Young O’Neil’s parents were James H. Young (1820-1910) and Caroline Egbertson (1832-1900), subjects of the two photographs below. You can read Ophelia’s obituary here, mom’s obituary here, and dad’s obituary here.
If anyone can identify what mom is holding in her hand, please chime in. I enlarged the photograph and turned it upside down but I was unable to come up with anything. It looks like a magazine.
Aside from Ophelia there were two sons. First we see Charles H. Young (1857-1940). He married Orpha L. LNU (1860-1938). They had a daughter named Bernice D. Young (1887-1971) and, apparently, two other daughters who died in infancy. Charles moved to Texas to work in the lumber business and was living there at the time of his father’s death in 1910. I was unable to learn a lot else about him.
The other son was Frank Stanley Young (1869-1945) who was a businessman and banker. He married Jane C. Donaghy in 1920 and they had two children, James Stanley Young (1922-2007) who died in Utah, and Nelda Jane Young (1924-1969).
These photographs were among 12 I purchased at a “mega flea market” at the Maryland State Fairgrounds over the July 4th weekend.
The following are the reverses of the above photographs, in the same order they appear above.
