*****************
From FindAGrave visitor, gfmmillard:
Anna Marie Young's head stone and death record gives her birth as about 1857, but the 1870 and 1880 censuses give her birth year around 1842, which fits better with her brothers, Clarence Bishop Young (born 1846) and William H. Young (born 1852). It was not uncommon for a woman to lie about her age if she was never married. Researcher's Note: gfmmillard refers to a headstone, but Anna's grave is noted in cemetery records as unmarked.
