Barbara, I think we connected several years ago about this family---I am glad to connect again! Lou Ella was born to James Robert and Frances Ophelia Sykes in 1880 in Monroe Co., MS. She married John Austin Young about 1899 (corrected date). She died in 1912/1913 and is buried in Cockerham Cemetery in Monroe County Mississippi. As far as I know, they had no children. I have sent for her death certificate. He must have been an honorable man--- ( and his second wife as well!) his first wife's mother lived with him in the 1930 census! I have a picture of LouElla and John that was taken about 1902/1903.
