#200105- Letter from Edith Hammill, daughter of Mary Evaline Young Hammill to her cousin, James, son of James N. Young: "After Uncle Charlie and Aunt Anna had 2 children, Lizzie and Carrie, the doctor told Uncle Charlie that Aunt Anna must have a change of scene. She had had at least one mental breakdown. So they moved from Medina County(?- put there by author) Ohio to Parma, Mic., the whole tribe about. One married daughter, stayed in Ohio. She was married to Charles Deyo. She died in childbirth. Those who came, Grandfather Nicholas Young, his wife Ann Buck Young, his son John, wife and daughter Mabel (afterwards Mrs. Chas. Hemenway) and unmarried children, Eva(Mary Evaline), Martha and James. Uncle Charlie bought a farm about three miles west of Parma. Uncle John bought one about three miles east of there and Grandfather Nicholas bought one on a road running south from where Uncle John lived. But for a while they lved in Parma. My mother, who was within one term of graduating from Oberlin College taught school. I do not know what James or Martha( a skilled pianist) did. Your mother after her graduation from Ypislante Normal Schools came to Parma to teach. There she met your father. Mary Evaline was born in January. Aunt Anna told me that the first place she went after Mary was born was to Jackson to see my mother and me after I was born in April. She probably rode in a lumber wagon with maybe a spring seat. She said she looked at her big plump baby and at the little scrawny me and wondered if my mother would ???(can't read it. JT) Your mother told me that when your sister was a tiny baby she looked at her and her short upper lip made her think of my mother so she named her Evelyn. she also said," I thought it would please James." Enough off this. I think you know that in the family stories there is this one. George Washington went by their home one day. There was a young man with him that they thought was Lafayette but they could never be sure. You probably know more of the Cary, Hayes side of the family than I do, especially if Aunt Ella wrote a family history.(No one knows of the history. JT) I think Cousin Joe thought the original spelling was Cary the English spelling. I could not understand why the e was inserted. This that follows should be checked. your Grandmother Hayes was born in Poughkeepsie(incorrect-she was born in England. JT). There were one other girl in the family and several boys. Your grandmother said she wanted a good education but her father thought if a girl could read, write and keep her household accounts, they needed no more. Her brothers had a good education. Uncle Joe taught Latin and Greek in the University of IL He was married 3 times. After the death of his first wife he married a lovely society girl and took her to Europe on their honeymoon. She was expecting her first child before they returned. She came home to a houseful of children who resented a step-mother. Lizzie the teen aged girl was especially resentful. I do not know who the boys were excepting Joe and G???( I can't read it. JT) The second wife children were Katherine and Alice. Katherine died, Alice married. I do not know her married name. The third wife was Annie Dillon. You may remember she came to the Columbian Exposition with Alice and Kit(?JT- maybe Kate?JT) and stayed at your house about 2 weeks. In the Chapel cemetery about 3 miles west of Parma, in a long line of Young graves there is your baby brother Willie and sister Eloise, Uncle Charlie and Aunt Anna Young, their daughter Dr. Caroline Young High, a place for her daughter Elfrida- a passage way. Then a Ruth Thompson( I think she was either a ????(I can't read it.JT) or the wife of a nephew as one of the grandfather's many sisters married a Thompson. She was in her early twenties. Then Aunt Martha Young, Eva(Young Hammill), my mother, Uncle John's small son, Mr. and Mrs. Dyer(Aunt Lizzie Young's father and mother), Uncle John, Aunt Lizzie, Grandfather Nicholas Young, his first wife Ann D. Buck and second wife Mary Moore Young. I think that is all. All the above is not very consistent but hope you can make something out of some of it............. #959- from Wallace Nolin- 1880 census Parma, Jackson Co., Mi. , pg. 18

March 19, 1977 Roots! From whence came we?- Charles Wyatt Young, born Feb. 26, 1837 in Tompkins Co., NY, being the grandfather of 8 present Albion area residents. OCT 18, 1861 he married Anna Elliott, native of Ireland whom he met while they were atttending Oberlin college For several years both taught school. Then after farming for five years in Ohio, they bought a farm mid-way between Albion and Parma in 1866. Two daughters had been born in Ohio and four more were born on the Jackson county farm where they lived 40 years. Charles had been converted and United with the Baptist church in Cleveland, and often mentioned sitting in church services with a young man named John D. Rockefeller, founder of the Standard Oil Co. and father of former Vice President Nelson Rockefeller. Charles was a deacon in the Parma Baptist church for many years and also served as Parma township commissioner of education from 1876 to 1880. He died in 1918 and his wife in 1921 and both are buried in Chapel cemetery.
Charles "worked with his brother John on a big farm near Bellevue." At that same time, their father Nicholas was on an 80 acre farm in Seneca Co., OH.
Some time before the beginning of the Civil War, (perhaps 1859?) Nicholas and Ann their sons and the two remaining daughters and the granddaughters all moved off to Parma, MI. (According to Edith Hammill), the immediate reason for the move was that after the births of Lizzie and Carrie, "the doctor told Uncle Charlie that Aunt Anna must have a change of scene. She had had at least one mental breakdown." [6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12]
