Young Reunion Plans

Descendants of ANDREW “LAMONT” YOUNG

Andrew was born abt 1644 Knockdow, Argyll, Scotland near Dunoon to John Lamont & Mary Young. After John Lamont, along with several hundred other Lamonts, were killed by a Campbell massacre, Mary fled with her children to Larne, Antrim, Ireland. Andrew changed his last name to Young, his 3 other brothers changed their last names to Sitlington, White & Green. The were involved in the Linen business near Larne, N Ireland

We believe Andrew died in Ireland, but his two sons John Young & James C Young emigrated to Augusta Co, VA about 1740 along with John’s children - Sarah, Hugh, John, William, Jane, James, & Robert & James C’s child James.
