One thought on “Cardigan People 8: John Young; Samuel Young; Wm J. Williams; David Williams, Mary Wilson”
John and Hannah Young we’re my 3x great grandparents. This is this first photograph of them that I have seen. Would it be okay to use this picture on my personal Ancestry family tree page? Also, do you know where this picture came from? Was this from a book is there another descendant with family photos? I have several pictures of Uncle Sam, including him outside the town hall when he was mayor, I would be happy to share these if they’re of interest. If you have any other information about John and Hannah Young this would also be appreciated.
