Young/Wilgus connection
Posted by: Bob Leader Date: May 12, 2000 at 01:12:55

The small bit of family history that I have was written up over 40 years ago by one of my great aunts who has since passed on. No first names were mentioned which is making it very diffacult for me to make the connection. My G.G. Grandmother was Nancy Young. Her mother's maiden name was WILGUS. I believe that this female Wilgus was from Logan Co., Ohio. I also believe that two of her sisters were LeAnne and Sarah and that they married two brothers, Crease & Emmet, or Increase & John Emmet Southard. If anyone can help me with first names and dates I would be very greatful. Going back one more generation, there was a male Wilgus, the father of LeAnne, Sarah, and my G.G.G. Grandmother (Wilgus) Young, that married a woman by the surname of WAYNE. This female Wayne was a first cousin of Gen. (Mad) Anthony Wayne. I have the name of Gen. Waynes father and his father's broters, but I can't quite figure out which brother is my 5th Great Grandfather to figure out the daughter that married a Wilgus. this connection would also be a miracle. If anyone could help me out, I would be most appreciative.
