*Selah Youngs did not have benefit of a computer, the Internet and all the available records. I just happened to come across the Christopher Yonge records in Salem, And Wenham, Mass. which answer a lot of questions.  Selah Youngs claimed that this line died out.

I'll trade you for one Ephraim Sands:

Four different Ephraim Sands

There were four different Ephraim Sands living in Buxton, Maine in the 1700s. They were referred to as Sr, Jr, 3rd, and 4th based on their birth year.

1720: Ephraim Sands born 25 Jan 1720 in Ipswich, Massachusetts was known as Sr.[17]
1743??: Ephraim Sands, son of Ephraim Sr, born 1754 was known as Jr. [18] [19]
1767: Ephraim Sands, son of Samuel, grandson of Ephraim Sr, born 17 Nov 1767 was known as the third. Some records may refer to him as “tertius”. [20] [21] [22] Note that his son, b. 14 Aug 1813 was known as Ephraim Sands Jr.
1782: Ephraim Sands, son of Ephraim Jr, grandson of Ephraim Sr, born 30 May 1782 was known as the fourth. [23] [24]
Bet you like sudoku, too!  In the space of 62 years there were  4 Ephraim Sands!   And to think that one of my own grandfathers was born in 1864!
