Brigham Young Lineage

Hello my name is Michael Hurley.
I have a remarkable discovery on my property of importance to the claims Brigham Young lineage existed in Tyrone, ny.

Grave stones of George Young and his wife Susan Young currently exist in my property after a excavation project commenced.  The stones are in somewhat good shape.  

If you have any information on the two Youngs mentioned here around 1850 it shows their passing. 

For more information,  call me or text (315) 569-5745  alanhurley3860@yahoo.com
