A round of applause goes to Linda Jasztal, who secured a copy of Green Hill in hopes that her ancestors would be on it. They weren't, so we hope someone(s) can help her trace where her Youngs fit in the big picture here and in Cayuga and Onondaga Counties. Linda typed up the whole of the listings during her lunch hours over a period of weeks this fall - almost 60 pages - and donated them to the site! Linda deserves further recognition as being of the most dedicated typing volunteers in NYState GenWeb, also assisting Cayuga County Genweb and others, as well as Ft. Klock Restoration's site.

"I am researching the Young and Harrington Families in Montgomery and Herkimer Counties. My g-g-g-g-grandparents, Elias Young and Charlotte (Harrington) Young were married 2-18-1818, at St. John's Episcopal Church, Johnstown, Montgomery County, N.Y. Elias was born 6-05-1795, Caughnawaga, Fonda, Montgomery County and is the son of Manuel Young and Maria Wager. Sometime before 1850, Elias and Charlotte located in Skaneateles, Onondaga County, N.Y., where their daughter Elizabeth married Lewis Sarr 9-07-1854. Both Charlotte and Elizabeth were born in Herkimer County. Charlotte, who was listed as a widow on the 1875 Owasco, Cayuga County Census, was living with Elizabeth and Lewis Sarr. Lewis remarried before the 1880 Owasco census; there is no further mention of Elizabeth, Charlotte, Elias or any of their other children".
