I'm not sure the last two groupings are part of clansmen.  I've been trying hard to confirm my lineage, but I never seem to get the same information twice...and so far it has been most difficult to lock it in. 

I have heard that my YOUNGS were part Cherokee Indian. 

I have reason to believe they originated in VA.  > TN > KY >  IL >> IA > NE > KS > OK >AR > MO (Not always in that order). 

They seemed to roam, but some always seemed to stay put....just not mine.

Cora May YOUNG was my grandmother who married a James Elmon Amos  KIRK in Columbus, KS in 1902.

I have collected quite a quantity of information, but I cannot piece it together.  I'm hoping someone can help me. 

In return, I will very willingly share what information I can with another.
