Peter I Young(s) Family Bible

Submitted by LeRoy Youngs

Attached is information from my GGG Grandfather, Peter I. Young(s) Bible. He and his family lived in Schoharie County until about 1820, when all or most of the family moved to Cortland Co. NY. If anyone has information about Peter's origins it would be greatly appreciated. Some of the children were baptised in the Dutch Reformed Churches in Middleburgh and Lawyersville. The "s" was added to "Young" at some point - was Young in baptismal records in Schoharie.

The Bible was printed and published be W.E. Norman in 1817.
