The Young Families of Early Giles County, Tennessee. Including Many Early Young Families of Surrounding Counties. Second Edition. Two Volumesby John E. Young
It has been more than 25 years since the 1986 First Edition of this work was published. With the publication of this Second Edition, the number of major contributors ... as well as the book's content ... has more than quadrupled, and source material has increased exponentially, which now necessitates a two-volume printing for the more than 1,150 pages. The Young Families of Early Giles County, Tennessee, is a well-written, comprehensive, impeccably researched body of work, providing, in many instances, documentation of family lines down to the present day progeny. It contains approximately 10,000 biographies of the original 16 early Young pioneers of pre-1850 Giles and neighboring counties, and their descendants. Mr. Young draws upon an abundance of reference material in developing the individual narratives, and drafts his conclusions in clear and succinct biographies. To give the researcher a sense of the scale of this effort, of the more than 3,000 counties in the United States, 779 have contributed source material to this work. A list of the contributing counties is included. The surnames of some of the related or allied families in these two volumes include: Abernathy, Baker, Brooks, Brown, Clark, Cook, Davis, East, English, Golightly, Harwell, Holley, Johnson, Jones, Kyle, Martin, Minatra, Mitchell, Moore, Robertson, Rogers, Sanders, Smith, Taylor, Tenery, Thompson, Walker, Watson, White, Willeford, Williams, Wilson, Worsham, and Young. Hardbound, 2-vols., 2nd ed., 2011, Maps, Biblio., Index, 1,155 pp.
