The genealogy part is pretty amazing. However, two important pieces of information that tie Wilson and Elizabeth Hughes Young to the Moses Young Family were omitted. Wilson did not sell property on Jacks Creek to J. Letterman in 1829 he bought it from him; Wilson was actually living close to Moses on the 1820 census. A deed dated 1/27/1834 exist for when Reuben Young witnessed a deed for 25 acres of land on Little Rock Creek granted to Wilson Young. One will find Wilson's eldest son Patterson mentioned quite often in the records with Reuben Young and his son Greenberry Wilson Young. Like I said though the genealogy part is impressive as well as the info pertaining to Thomas and Naomi Hyatt Young which makes it worth having a copy of and for that I give it four stars.
