Surname Saturday: YOUNG

The YOUNG family is my paternal line. The origins of this surname are Germanic, so the original spelling was more likely JUNG.

Hi Travis,
I am also descended from Charles Young/Catherine Kindt through their grandson Rev. Jason Young. It seems that all Young researchers of this line end with Charles. I sure would like to find the names of his parents! Nice blog!
