Narrative

Several other Young's in 1810 US Census in Jefferson County, KY:
Christian, older Andrew, younger Andrew Young's
, but already there in 1800 KY Tax List: Andrew, Christian, James, Jasper, & William ( no Thomas ). James and Robert, his brothers, are probably the ones listed in Green County in 1800 Tax List. Thomas Young does appear in Jefferson until the 1811 Tax List:
1 m>21 1m16-21 no blacks.

He may be the Thomas Young in Green Co, KY Tax Lists 1802 & 1804-1807. The 1802 tax list has a single Tho's Young with 2 properties: 1 along Russells Ck (from William Wilson) and 1 along Rennix Cr where he lived. The Thomas Young who bought land in 25 Jun 1803 along Russell Creek is probably him. "1818 deed where Thomas Young of INDIANA sold that same tract of land in Green County":

[Capt. Thomas Young of Mason County bought much larger land plots along Russell Ck in 1793 from his bounty warrant.]

So, Thomas and Elizabeth Young family moved from Jefferson Co, KY to Pike Co, IN 1816-1818.

A tree on ancestry.com claims Thomas Young stayed in Mason Co, KY and his Rev War Pension affidavit was witnessed by a John Chambers. There were 2 Thomas Young's in Mason Co, KY in 1800, so perhaps this is his father. This Thomas Young was probably too young to be in the Rev War. This elder Thomas Young b.1751 d.1837 in Mason Co, KY. I do not see a connection in the military service and a John Chambers remains in Mason Co, KY.

Proof that Thomas was connected to the Young's on Renox Creek, Cumberland Co, KY:
"From that census data which is available, Thomas was born some time between 1760 and 1770. Thomas and his family left Cumberland Co., KY at an early date. Although he was not listed in the Cumberland County Federal Census of 1810, he did not sell his land in that county until 1826 (Cumberland Co., KY Deed Bk. F, p. 140). The deed of sale identified the land as being on Renox Creek and stated that Thomas was living in Pike Co., IN. The 1820 Federal Census for Pike Co., IN (Madison Twp.) lists Thomas's household as having 2 males under 10, 1 male 16-18, 2 males 16-26, 1 male 45 and over, i female under 10, 1 female 10-16, 2 females 16-26, 1 female 26-45, and one female over 45. By 1830, Thomas and his family were living in Clay Twp. of Pike County (1830 Federal Census) . Listed on the same page of this census were households of John and Jonathan Young, both 30-40. Presumably, John and Jonathan were Thomas's sons. By 1850, Jonathan was living in Patoka Twp. of Gibson Co., IN (1850 Federal Census) . Neither Thomas or John could be found in the Gibson or Clay County lists. Either they had died or had moved to some other location."

[I have added brothers of this Thomas to the family altho their father is unknown at this time. The reference guesses from birthdates of the brothers' sons that they moved from Virginia to Kentucky some time between 1791 and 1797, however the marriages of Robert in VA Mar 1789 and James in KY Oct 1789, indicate they probably moved in the Summer of 1789.]

No other Young's are neighbors in 1820 ; it's possible William and Thomas stayed in KY. The marriage of "Thomas Young" and Lucy Barbee in Shelby 1811 is a different line. The will does refer seperately to "William Young and Thomas Young".

Some claim this marriage: Thomas Young m. Elizabeth Hughes 18 Mar 1795 in Lincoln, KY not long after brother James Young married Sally Breeding there (5 counties away from Jefferson) but this couple is known to have ended up in Perry Co, KY,
