William Young and Patience Sinclair:
William Young Sr. b. about 1714 Stafford County, Virginia. Will dated 20 December 1790. Probate 27 February 1792, Fauquier County, Virginia. (Virginia Mixed Probate Records, FHL film 0031566)
William Young Sr. married Patience Sinclair 23 July 1744 in Overwharton Parish, Essex (now Stafford) Co., VA (Overwharton Parish Register of Stafford Co., Virginia.) Patience was listed as William?s wife in his 1790 will.
A number of undocumented on-line genealogies list William?s date of death as 22 May 1810, Stafford County, Virginia, but no one can tell me where that date and place came from. I assume they came from one of the unverified temple records or from the undocumented ancestral files on the LDS site. Regardless of where they came from, serious Young and Sinclair researchers all agree that the William Young who married Patience Sinclair died 1792 in Fauquier Co., Virginia.
Despite all the posts on the internet, William Young Sr. was not the son of Michael Cadet Young of Brunswick County. Michael Cadet Young?s son William was born after 1733, making it unlikely that he married in 1744. In addition, it appears that this William Young was in Stafford County as early as 1735. (See land transaction below.) Finally, Michael Cadet Young?s son was alive and well 10 months after William of Fauquier?s will was probated. (Letter of brother John Young, Dec. 1792, Kennedy Collection, UNC Chapel Hill.)
William?s likely parents were Bryan/Bryant Young and Anne Waye. There was a Bryan/Bryant Young in Stafford Co., by 1700 and the recitation of a 1735 land transaction lists his eldest son as William Young. This Bryan/Bryant Young married Anne Waye. After Bryan Young died, about 1725/1726, Anne married John Peyton and her name is recorded in Peyton documents. Anne?s last Peyton child was born about 1744. As a result, I assume that she was born no earlier than about 1694. CAVEAT ON MOTHER: It is possible that Bryant Young had a previous wife and that William came from that marriage, but I have not seen anything to support this.
One of the Stafford Co. records for Bryan Young refers to him as "of Lancaster Co." Old Rappahannock County, Virginia was established in 1656 from Lancaster County, Virginia. In 1691, the counties of Richmond and Essex were organized from Old Rappahannock (which was then abolished). So the following seems to be him or a close relative:

Bryan Young was alive in 1723:
A Quit Rent Roll of 1723: Taken from the Register of Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia
Bryan Young 369 Acres Paid 90 lbs. Tobacco.
He apparently died between 1723 and 1726:

Volume One, The Peytons of Virginia II, Harold Davey (2004) p. 20 :
John Peyton (1691-1760) of Stony Hill ....
John Peyton's marriages have been a source of some confusion among genealogists because of incomplete entries in the Overwharton Parish Registry. There seems to be no question that his first marriage was to Anne (Waye) Young, widow of Brian Young, at a date preceding 1727.
I have not done much to investigated possible children for Bryan and Anne Young, but there was a John Young b. abt 1715 in Stafford and who was later in Fauquier Co. In addition, descendents of Mary Young (b. 1716, Stafford Co., d. 1786 in Fauquier County, VA, married James Foley) list Bryan Young and Anne Waye as Mary?s parents..

"In the name of God Amen this twentieth day of December Annis Domini, one thousand seven hundred and ninety. I William Young of the County of Fauquier being in perfect and sound memory do make and ordain this my last will and testament Imprimis (in person).

Discussion of the Will:
Some researchers say that John Young and Sarah Young Cundiff are not William Sr.?s children because they were not listed in his will, but this is a misunderstanding both of the will and of estate law. There was no requirement that a parent list all of his children by name anywhere in his will. In fact, it is quite common to see wills that name a child or two -- out of a dozen --and leave the others unnamed under a catch-all phrase like "all my children."
In this particular will, there really were two parts of the will leaving property to William's children. The first was made up of the specific bequests to listed children, Bryan, William, Mary, Susanna and Hannah. Even though John and Sarah did not receive specific bequest, this does not mean they weren?t children. There was no legal requirement that a parent leave a specific bequest to each of his children. For a variety of reasons, some children got specific bequests in wills and others did not.
The second part of the will, leaving property to the children, was the distribution of the remainder of the estate to "all my children or their representatives" after Patience's death. This part of the will was not restricted in anyway. All children, living or dead, named in the will or not, would have received shares of the estate after Patience died. If John and/or Sarah were children, they or their heirs would have received equal shares along with the other children
As a result, it doesn't mean very much that John Young and Sarah Young Cundiff were not listed by name in the will. The most we can say is that John and Sarah didn't receive specific bequests in the will. They could have been included in the catch-all phrase, ?all my children.? There is strong circumstantial evidence that John and Sarah were William and Patience?s children. John and William Jr. married Singleton sisters. John named sons William, Bryan and St. Clair. Sarah?s first daughter was named Patience and she named sons William and Bryan. In addition, both John and Sarah moved to Kentucky with Bryan Young, William Young and Hannah Owsley and there were continuing connections among the families.

Additional Notes About William Young Jr.
Although William and Patience Young did have a son named William, their son did not marry Elizabeth Huff and move to Tennessee. Their son married Sarah Singleton and moved to Kentucky with his siblings. Everything about the William who went to Kentucky fits with William and Patience Young?s family. Nothing about the William who went to Tennessee does -- except his name.
The William Young who married Elizabeth Huff and moved to Tennessee was born 15 April 1744. This was three full months before William and Patience married in Stafford County. This fact alone makes it very unlikely that they were his parents.
It is also clear that no one has any documentation for the birthplaces of William of Tennessee, his wife Elizabeth, or their children. Their dates of birth apparently came from an old family Bible that did not record place. As a result, descendents have placed their births from Essex Co. in the far east of Virginia -- not very likely -- to the western Virginia frontier -- more likely. Given the fact that no one even knows where these people were born, it is stunning that they have been attached with such conviction to the family of William and Patience Young.
In addition, a family history of William of Tennessee says: ?"The first recordings are of one William Young, born 15 Apr 1744. He was of German and English Descent, and came to Virginia with the early settlement of that state.? (Life and Times of William Young - Tennessee Frontiersman, Utah Pioneer, written by Gary Dean Young, ggg-grandson <http://www.lofthouse.com/USA/Utah/washington/history/wmyoung.html>, quoting an earlier history by Lettie Y. Swapp and Fannie Y. Lundquist.) Gary Dean Young also notes in his history, ?Another clue to the origin of the Young family, was one of their occupations. Besides farming, they were gunsmiths, and it is a historical fact that German immigrants supported the Revolutionary War effort by making guns and gunpowder.? Although family histories are often inaccurate on details, they often do have ethnic origins right. There isn?t even a hint of Germany about the family of William and Patience Young and no gunsmiths either.
According to the following, William and Elizabeth Heff Young were from Frederick Co., Virginia. I assume this was Old Frederick Co., Virginia, most of which is now part of West Virginia. RESIDENCE: HISTORY OF SMITH COUNTY TENNESSEE, FHL book 976.852/H2h, Vol 1,section F838 by Lloyd D. Young; Tennesse resident and decendant of William and Elizabeth Huff Young; NOTE: "The Young family of the Stonewall, Gordonsville, Hickman area of Smith County, whose history is written in this narrative, came from Frederick County, Virginia in the early part of the 19th Century, before1810, and settled on Indian Creek in the southwestern section of JacksonCounty, which is now Putnam County. This was the family of William Young, who moved there with his wife and eight children. . . . William Young, the progenitorof the family in Jackson County, was born in Virginia on April 15, 1744, died on October 31, 1818, and was buried on Indian Creek. He married Elizabeth Huff on March 25 1770, and the eight children were already born when they left Virginia."
Gary Dean Young, who is a Mormon descendent of William of Tennessee, summed up the problem as follows: ?David & Elizabeth Vance Young [son and daughter-in-law of William of Tennessee] raised their family on the Indian Creek property, near their parents and other relatives. David Young?s grandparents were not William & Patience Sinclair Young of Stafford County Virginia as is commonly believed. This mistake comes from a set of Salt Lake Mormon temple records dated 26 Jun 1917 (FHL film 183469, pages 1364 and 1370) [emphasis added]
* * * *
Sometime later, a descendent of the Moody family in Salt Lake incorrectly connected Wm Young, husband of Patience Sinclair to the Michael Cadet Young family of southern Virginia.? [emphasis added]
In other words, the ?information? connecting William of Tennessee to Michael Cadet Young through William and Patience Young is based solely on mistaken temple records. There actually is no documentation for these alleged connections.

- Note: !MARRIAGE: This information received Wed, 7 Mar 2007 09:09:15 -0800 (PST), Brockhaus <email@example.com> from Juliana Black: "Stafford County was created in 1664 from Westmoreland County. There fore, in 1744, there would be no question of the Overwharton Parish being in Stafford and not in Essex. Essex County came into being in 1691; created from Old Rappahannock Co. This William Young was definitely married in Stafford Co., I believe, with no question of it being Essex. I think that a few people have this location of Essex only with this William Young, which I believe is incorrect. I am researching this Young family who are my ancestors. There is so much incorrect repeated information that sometimes it is a little frustrating."
