This name now extinct in Marion County was once prominent. Johnson B. Young, I think, another
of the many good importations from North Carolina, was the heard of the name in Marion; he came
here in his youth, perhaps from 1838 to 1840. He and John Wilcox were for many years, and up to
the war, partners in a large mercantile business. Johnson B. Young married a Miss Whilden, of
Charleston; they had and raised three sons and four daughters; the sons were Frank, J. Blake and
"Hal" (don't know the name); the daughters were Emma, Willie, Celeste and Julia.
