Captain John Young / John Young Early Settler - Kanawha Co

Located on Rt 119 about 4 miles north of Elkview. Again, not much luck with the research.





Historical Marker located on Rt 119 about 4 miles north of Elkview.





Same Marker - Side #2




View South on Rt 119.





View north on Rt 119. Just to the left of where I'm standing is the road up the hill to the cemetery. (See next photo)




Narrow road up the hill to the cemetery.






Hilltop cemetery. I looked all over for the gravestone of Capt John Young, but the best I could find was a small section with several "Young" stones.




It seems as if families were buried together in close proximity, and the ones that are legible in this enclosure are all "Young". There are a few old ones that are worn smooth, and I'm assuming one of those is Capt Young's headstone.




Lots of these all over the cemetery.
