Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 20, 1831
Ohio, USA
Death: Jul. 31, 1922
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA

The "Blissfield [Michigan] Advance" said in its Friday, February 18, 1887, edition that "Sam Young and wife and Elisha Luke and wife started for California last Thursday. Thus Ogden loses two of its staunch farmers, and the Prohibs, two valuable members." Sarah's brother, Lewis Wilcox, a United Brethren minister, also accompanied them to California, but he soon returned to Michigan and died ten years later. The wife of Sam Young was Rosetta Luke, daughter of Elisha and Sarah. Elisha Luke was a real estate developer in Los Angeles, probably with the encouragement and support of his brother-in-law, Harvey Henderson Wilcox.
