Family Tree Progess

Okay, let’s do a quick wrap-up here…[updated and corrected]

The PARK family has descendency ties to Robert E. Lee and his wife [Mary Ann Randolph Custis].

Her ancestor was George Washington‘s wife Martha Dandridge CUSTIS (maiden name DANDRIDGE). Martha’s first husband was 20 years her senior — he was Daniel PARKE CUSTIS (son of John CUSTIS, and grandson of  John Parke); her father was John Dandridge — her mother was Agnes Wilder.

*** Robert E. Lee was also a distant cousin to his wife. [added: 28Dec2010)


PARK/PARKE/PARKS descendants are connected to the Burchfields — the Burchfields via the Park line (somewhere) are kin to the Gustafsson/Justice family originally from Sweden; and how did I get here (this time)?

Tracing the Davis-Smathers connection of Aunt Betty Davis (married – Jack Abernathy) — trying to learn about her father’s family.


The other point of interest is Aunt Betty Davis Abernathy‘s ancestral ties to a Cherokee Chief Oowahooskie (various spellings found).

His ‘wife’ had been captured from a white settlement/group when she was about six years old. They had three sons; she and the sons were later released — they lived as white men, and were land-holders. This made for Cherokee heritage claims with US courts unsuccessful — but the Indian connection seems valid from research/sources found online, now.


There is also a connection between the PARK family and a CHANDLER line in Georgia…will follow this up later.


Another connection exist between the DAVIS line and the CARPENTER (ZIMMERMAN) families from North Carolina — this warrants further research, since my mother and my father’s ancestral line include connection to the CARPENTER (ZIMMERMAN) lines from the Carolinas.


NO direct Patey/PATE/PATTY connections — but have found AYERS/AYRES, PAYNE, and McClellan connections in the Carolina regions (where my husband’s family were from)…

The PAYNE connection may link up with the TEAGUE, SPEER, PERRY, OWEN or other related families who later migrated to NE Alabama (near Ft. Payne).


With the research from the past three days — “We are all kin” has more meaning then is previously did, for me.

Each friend I have helped with their family tree research, I have also found something that fit with prior research for my own complicated ancestral lines.

Are your ancestors included in this tangle of kinfolks?

Contact me with a bit of your grandparents vital statics (dates, location, family members) — I will see what I can find.

The Young (Jung) Families of the Mohawk Valley

The Young (Jung) Families of the Mohawk Valley


Compiled by Clifford M. Young & Published by

The Fort Plain Standard, Fort Plain, NY 1947

Donated by Bruce Hargrove.



Careful study of the limited records available concerning this branch of the YOUNG (JUNG) families indicates that Hans Christian Young was born in 1728 and came to this country from Germany at least a generation previous to the Revolutionary War-probably 1740 or 1750. The Dutch Reformed Church records. Fort Plain, N. Y., state that he died March 2, 1813, aged 86 years and left eight children, 66 grand children and 45 great-grandchildren.

The early settlers of the Palatine German stock, who came to this country in the great Palatine emigration of 1710, first located at East and West Camps on the Hudson River, and most of that group who migrated to Schoharie and finally to the Mohawk Valley, did not reach the Valley until about 1722 and subsequent years. It appears that Hans Christian Young doubtless came directly to the Mohawk Valley or via Philadelphia in later years and settled on a farm or lot in Livingston Patent in Freysbush, Montgomery county-then Albany county. As this lot is described as two miles east of the lot in Lansing Patent later known as the Norman Young farm in Brookmaus Corners, it is believed to have been the Dingman farm -on the Fort Plain-Cherry Valley trail or later highway, which farm is located just south of the present Freysbush Lutheran Church. As this section was forest and inhabited largely by Red Men, if at all, it is not surprising that Hans Christian Young had many thrilling experiences previous to and during the Revolution, as the records indicate. What these experiences were, however, is not stated.

It is regretted that the name of the wife of Hans Christian Young cannot be stated here with certainty, but it is believed that she was Anna Maria Muller (Miller). His will on file in Fonda, dated May 26, 1807, indicates that his living children were Godfrey, John Christian, John, Christina, Anna Elisabeth and Thomas.
