Generation 6

Note: Information on the Lewis Family before Walden Lewis b. c. 1774 in Virginia comes from assumptions based on multiple sources. Therefore, the information on this page is not reliable for genealogical purposes.

William Young (5Joseph, 4John, 3James, 2James, 1Edmund) Lewis of Virginia

There is a yDNA connection between this person and my ancestor, Walden Lewis b. c. 1774 Spotsylvania Co VA. yDNA confirms an exact match (37/37) to some tests. And, there are close (36/37) matches and almost close (35/37) matches. All of theses matches deserve research to determine how the different families are related.

These test results can be found at the Lewis Surname DNA Project. Additionally, a detailed discussion of the significance of these test results and a comparison of the results for the five Lewis families of northern Virginia can be found at DNA Results.

This analysis focuses on the 36/37 match to William Young of Page Co VA. As Walden Lewis b. c. 1774 Spotsylvania Co VA is my ancestor. How can someone named Young be a nearly perfect match? Interestingly, William matches perfectly Joseph Lewis of Caroline Co VA. [Research]

William Young was born 1777 somewhere in Virginia. And according to his descendants, his circumstances are unknown.

We have found no record of William Young (1775 - 1855) prior to his marriage in 1801 to Elizabeth Burgess. The Orange County, Virginia census of 1785 (1795?) list as Head of household two person's with the surname Young. William Young as having five children and John Young as having four children.

Since the obituary of Nancy Young, a daughter of William and Elizabeth Young, states that Nancy's birth was in Orange County, Virginia, we believe that it is logical to assume with a relative degree of confidence that either William or John Young would have been the father of William Young, the husband of Elizabeth Burgess. William Young was born East of the Blue Ridge mountains.
