    • JOHN YOUNG, farmer, P.O. Inkerman, was born in Durham, England, October 10, 1817, and is a son of John and Margaret (Galuthly) Young, natives of the same place, who reared a family of sixteen children, of whom John is eleventh in order of birth. Our subject received his education in England, and afterward worked in the mines in his native land, until emigrating to this country in 1845.

      He first located in Schuylkill county, Pa., where he worked in the mines until 1854, and then came to Luzerne county, Pa., settling in Pittston, and becoming a contractor for the sinking of shafts, and tunneling in the mines, which business he followed until 1884, since which time he has been farming at his present location.

      Mr. Young was united in marriage July 9, 1838, with Jane, daughter of John and Jane (Doubie) Young, natives of England; she died February 13, 1892, after a happy wedded life of fifty-four years. The issue now living, of their union, are as follows: Janes, born January 11, 1841, married, December 7, 1858, to Moses Magee, of Forty Fort, this county; Margaret, born January 18, 1843, married, May 8, 1863, to James A. Bryden, mine foreman, Pittston, this county; William, born October 20, 1844; Mary A., born November 14, 1846, married to Thomas S. Bavette, tinsmith, West Pittston; George P., born September 3, 1850; Thomas D., born October 3, 1852; Elizabeth, born September 27, 1854; and Dorothy N., born November 8, 1856, married to John G.
