I am looking for any information about Walter S. Young, my gr.grandfather, born Oct. 1861 in Maine. I have found him only in the 1900 census:

Columbia Falls, Washington Co
Young, Walter S. born Oct.1861
Rosa wife, born Feb. 1859
William A. son, born April 1881
Belinda E. dau, born Nov. 1886
Fannie E. dau, born March 1889

Rosa may be a second wife as William is 19 and Walter and Rosa are listed as being married 17 years.

Also in the Columbia and Columbia Falls area I have found Wallace Young born 182/3 (1880), Charles S. Young born 1842/3 (1880+1870), and George A. Young born 1850/1 (1900+1880+1870). All with fathers being born in Scotland, which I think would make them Walter's brothers or cousins.

I am especially interested in finding Walter's father's name. He would be listed I hope with his father in the 1870 and perhaps the 1880. Or any listing of Wallace, Charles, George, and or Walter as part of a family with parents names. Possible in the Eastport or Lubec area.

Thank you

Lucia Williams-Young

There is more information on John and his family and Walter's brothers and sisters in the book Early Pleasant River Families of Washington County Maine. This is where the information above came from.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for your information, I had hit a wall looking for Walter's father's name, my grandfather never seemed to want to talk about his family when I asked him. I think that there must have been some kind of difficulty.

I found that the university library , just across from where I work and the Bangor library has a copy which I will be looking at today.

Thanks again

Vital Records of Lubec - Prior to 1892 does not show a Walter or a Wallace Young

It does show a couple of references to a Charles

Charles Edward Young b 7/7/1836 to Edwin & Rebecca
Charles Young d 2/23/1844 8 years son of Edwin and Rebecca presumably the same boy

Edwin & Rebecca were married 10/25/1835 (remarks "she from NScotia")

The Vital Records of Lubec show the following male names with the surname Young:
Andrew Brown, CF?, Charles and Charles Edward (see above), Daniel, david A, Edwin, John, nathaniel and Thomas

Wallace is also a surname that has multiple listings in the book - I have the Wallace given name in my connection to the Coggins family
