Biography of John Young of Elba, NY

John Young and wife came from Virginia in 1804. on horseback, and after innumerable dangers and hardships settled on the eastern part of the premises now owned by Albert Parker, south of Elba village. He received the first deed of farming lands issued by the Holland Land Co., July 11, 1803, in what is now Elba. For a bed they obtained a large cotton bag of Mr. Brisbane, at the "Transit store house," which, filled with the down of the cat- tail flag, certainly afforded them a downy bed, if not one of ease.
