The biography for Jocelyn Young is empty. What can you add?
My father and stepfather were in the military, we traveled a lot. Married a Navy Chief Petty Officer, my travels continued until he retired in California. Have two children, both married. During my youth I would sit by my grandmother and inquire of her childhood, and how she met her husband. Through her stories, curiosity of my ancestors, how they lived, where they lived and who they were, was well and alive in me. I asked my father of his parents, who they were. I asked how his brother died. He had no definite answers, so I went searching. Found out his ship was sunk by the Germans during WWII. I have his last letter written to my grandfather. Through Ancestry, MyHeritage and other sources, I've been able to fill my tree with names. They came from Scotland, Ireland, England, Portugal and Spain As I research each person, I get to know them, and I feel close to them. My stumbling block is John McCullough Young, I've been on his trail for three years. My John M Young was married to Mary Polly Cotter, not to Mary Sitlingon nor Mary Elizabeth White. Just need to find the proof. AND, I need to find who were (are) his parents. Somehow, someway I will find the proof

Replying to your note from July, there is no relation between my surname (McCullagh) and the Young clan in Scotland, as surprising as that may sound! I was adopted, so McCullagh is my adopted name.
Biologically, I descend from the Youngs through my mother. I am fairly well researched on this Young lineage; their roots were in Midlothian, primarily South Queensferry.
There is an interesting coincidence in our trees: we both have Archibald Youngs from several generations back. A few years ago, this would have given me considerable pause for thought, since I could not for the life of me figure out where the name Archibald had come from. But I've solved that mystery: his parents named him for their employer, Archibald John Primrose, an Earl in Scotland in the 1800's.
