A Paul Woke has supposedly written a genealogy that includes our Youngs but I have been unable to locate the published research or any documentation. See Woke Family History by Paul Woke - if you can find the book. More bits and pieces here and there from a lot of research. We broke the bank just finding them on the 1850 census and not much since.
