The name of George Youngs father is not proved, but circumstantially he may have been the Thomas Youngs junior of Oyster Bay who bought land from his father, Thomas Youngs senior, 10 May 1699, the property being described as `all that of Thirty Acrees (sic) of Land which I have Lying Nigh to Cold Spring and Joyning to ye Highways and (all) my Right and priviledge In the half right of Land which I bought of Thom (as) fforman . . ." (OBTR II:399-400). Thomas junior sold the thirty acres 17 November 1701 to Thomas Ireland for £15 (OBTR II:515-517), and is of no further record. On 6 April 1700 Thomas Youngs, presumably senior, had five acres laid out to him on the east side of Laurel Hollow in Oyster Bay, "joining to" the highway to Cold Spring (OBTR III: 125). no other Youngs has been found to have had land in or near Cold Spring at this time.
1. George Youngs, born probably between 1700 and 1712, died at Cold Spring, L.I., between I March 1780 and 14 October 1782. He married. 12 January 1741/2 (HnCh p.76), Phebe Ketccham, daughter of Philip and Phebe Ketcham of Huntington, who survived her husband (CFSev IV: 1,691-1,693).
Sometime in 1736 George Youngs witnessed the imperfectly dated will af John van Arsedale of Jamaica (NYCW 20:1; WNYHS V: 104). He was called "of Oyster Bay" when, as a friend of the testator, he was named one of the executors of the will of Barent van Wyck, 21 January 1749/50 (NYCW 17:67;WNYHS IV:256). After his marriage he was of Huntington. On 2 January 1755 Amos Platt and Isaac Smith, as executors of the estate of Henry Titus, sold land in Negunteteague neck in the present town of Babylon to George Youngs of Huntington for £47 (HnDeeds 3:196). He was rated at Huntington in 1764 on a valuation of £30 (HnTR I-I:476). He signed the Articles of Association in Huntington, 8 May 1775, probably out of expediency (Refug. p. 1063). He was a miller, and operated a mill at Cold Spring Harbor.
His will, dated 13 May 1779, with a codicil of I March 1780, was proved 14 October 1782 (NYCW 35:275; WNYHS XII:58-60).
