****************************
  Jesse Thomas Young was born in September 16, 1822 in South Carolina.  Census records from the mid to late 1800's and family histories indicate that he was the son of James Young.  No documented information has been found concerning his early life.
  The first written documentation of Jesse Thomas Young appears in the marriage register of Carroll County, Mississippi recording his married to Jane Curry Bird, July 14, 1842.  Their son, Spencer Young was born in Carroll County April 15, 1843.  There were no other children born to Jesse and Jane. The fate of Jane Curry Bird is not known.  Jesse Young remarried in 1846 so it is assumed that Jane Curry died sometime between 1843 and 1846.
  The Carroll County marriage register indicates that Jesse Thomas Young married Eliza Ann Chambers (b 1824) on January 2, 1846.  Eliza Ann Chambers was a daughter of Dr. William P. and Elizabeth Chambers.  Jesse Young moved his family to Drew County, Arkansas around 1854.  Tradition holds the family moved at about the time of a major Yellow Fever epidemic in Carroll County, Mississippi.  The family settled in the southeast corner of Drew county not far from the Ashley county line in a community settled by his father-in-law Dr. Chambers.  The community became known as Line.  Other communities of interest were Old Troy and new Troy.
   In November of 1856, Jesse Young was ordained as Preacher of the Gospel by the congregation of the Disciples of Jesus Christ meeting at Mytiline.  The credential document was signed by W. P. Chambers and was eventually filed for record at Drew County on November 25, 1871.   Jesse Young continued as a preacher until a few weeks before his death in 1914.
  Jesse Thomas Young remarried in 1859, the fate of Eliza is unknown.  There is no record of her burial in the New Troy cemetery where Jesse Thomas Young is buried.  
   Drew County, Arkansas marriage records (book B, page 54) lists the marriage of Jesse Thomas Young age 37 to Mary Francis Nealy, age 28 on August 3, 1859.
  A James T. is included in the roster of Company L of the Third Regiment of the Arkansas Volunteers, organized at Latonia, Ashley county on July 1, 1861.  Some sources have attributed this enlistment to Jesse Thomas Young (age 38 at that time).  However there was in fact, a James T. Young age 24 residing in West Carroll parish LA just to the south of Ashley county AR.  It seems certain that it was this James rather than Jesse who enlisted in Company L.  It is interesting to note that James T. Young's father was named Spencer.  See the Research page for more information on this second Spencer Young and his possible relationship to Jesse Thomas Young.
  On December 7, 1878 Jesse, age 56, married his fourth wife, Susan Gabbert, probably age 37.  Susan Gabbert's brother Michael married Jesse's daughter Cordellia in 1882.
  Most of his life, Jesse Thomas Young's occupation was listed in census records as farmer and at times, preacher.  Around 1900 at an age of 77, his occupation began to be listed as physician.  He apparently became a country doctor for the rural community of Line in south Drew county Arkansas.  It is interesting to note the influence Dr. W. P. Chambers  had on Jesse Young.  Literally following his mentor's footsteps from Mississippi to Arkansas, Jesse Young became first a preacher then a country doctor.

In 1911, Edward died suddenly and at age 89, Jesse helped to raise Edward's children.

Jesse Thomas Young died in Drew county Arkansas, September 16, 1914 at age 92 and was buried in the New Troy cemetery.  His grave is marked with the title Doctor Jesse Thomas Young.

*****************************

The following is given by a descendant, Ronald E. Bullock (available at http://www.daytex.com/line.htm as of Dec 2004).
My Mother, Essie Naron, was born in the community of Line, AR, on the boundary of Drew and Ashley Counties in Jan of 1911. There is hardly anything at all there at present to show that it was once a rather prosperous farming community, except for some sizable nearby cemeteries.  My Mom's great-grandfather, Jesse T. Young (1822-1914), was a country doctor and preacher in Line. She can still remember sitting in his lap and having his long, white beard tickle her face when she was not quite four. He is said to have ridden his horse to church and preached on the morning in which he died suddenly that afternoon at age 92.

   In 1860 Bill and Jane resided in Beech Creek Township, Ashley Co., AR., with their land valued at $400 and their personal property valued at $250.  In 1870 and 1880 they were living in Carter Township, Ashley Co., AR. In 1870 their land was valued at $80, and their personal property at $300.
   The name of "Bill" is given on his headstone in Cleveland cemetery (Ashley County Cemetery listing, Ashley Co. Ledger). He is buried with his wife, Jane (Artimissa Jane WALDROP).  The Cleveland Cemetery is located adjacent to Arkansas Highway 8, 5.5 miles east of the intersection of Highway 8 and U.S. 425 in Hamburg (North 33 11.312 West 91 42.837). Gravesite visited by Robert E. STONE and son Robert D. STONE abt. 2000.

Julia was born in 1859 soon after her family's move from Mississippi.  For the 1860 census her parents resided in Bearhouse Township, Ashley Co., Arkansas.

Julia died only eleven days after giving birth to Anna, presumably from complications with the birth.

They had the following children.

  F i Anna Elizabeth Fidelia RILEY was born on 26 Jan 1878. She died on 4 Jan 1954.

James Cooper RILEY [Parents] [scrapbook] 1 was born 2, 3 on 1 Jan 1826 in South Carolina. He died on 9 Apr 1882 in Ashley Co., Arkansas. He was buried in Mt. Olive Cemetery, Ashley Co., Arkansas. James married 1, 4 Elizabeth Ann DAVIS on 1 Jan 1851 in Hamburg, Ashley Co., Arkansas.

    James Cooper Riley was born 1 Jan 1826 in South Carolina.  The ancestry of James is not well established, but he is believed to be the son of Joseph Riley, born about 1790 in South Carolina.  James is the second born of at least eight children who all made their way to Ashley Co. Arkansas. It is estimatd that the Riley family departed South Carolina sometime after 1838, and spent a few years in Mississippi prior to making their way to Ashley County in the late 1840s or early 1850.
     In 1850 James' occupation is listed as "Wagoner" from the census and he was residing in the household of Thomas and Elizabeth Denson and their children, along with several other boarders, in White Township, Ashley Co., Arkansas. Also in this household was Elizabeth Davis, who would become his wife on 1 Jan 1851 in Ashley Co., Arkansas.
    In Nov 1851 Elizabeth gave birth to their first child, John, followed by the birth of twin boys in 1853 (James and William), James would only live to be 9 months, and William also died early at age 16. James and Elizabeth would have a total of twelve children, with five dying before reaching the age of 20.
    In 1857 a land patent is recorded for 120 acres in the Bearhouse area (S27 W½SW T15S R6W and S28 NESE T15S R6W) which was followed by an 1859 patent for 40 acres (S27 NESW T15S R6W) and yet another in 1860 for 40 acres (SESW T15S R6W 27).  (A map showing this land is available in the multi-media version of this report).
    On 23 August 1862, James and Elizabeth joined Mt. Olive Baptist Church by "experience and baptism" [Mt. Olive records, p. 8].  The Mt. Olive church would become a focal point for the Riley's and their descendants.  Several events from James' life and that of his descendants may be found in the meeting minutes of the Mt. Olive church. In July 1867 James was elected as an alternate delegate to the church association [ibid, p. 21].  In June 1868 James was elected as a deacon with the ordination following in July 1868 [ibid, p. 23-24].  In August 1868 James was elected as a delegate to the church association [ibid, p. 24].  In March 1869 the church entrusted James with funds from the church, and in July 1869 he served on a committee to repair the church well [ibid, p. 25].  In September 1869 he was elected as an alternate delagate to the church association [ibid, p. 26].  He is shown as a member of the "Sabbath School" in April 1873 [ibid, p. 34a].  In June 1873 he served on the church committee to repair the well [ibid, p. 35].  The final entry from the Mt. Olive minutes which survive today records his responsibility for early work done in the church cemetery.  They met on 10 August 1874 to construct a 10-rail fence and gate around the cemetery [ibid, p. 36].
    From before 1860 to after 1880 the family resided in Bearhouse Township, Ashley Co., Arkansas. In 1860 the land was valued at $1120 and his personal property at $180.  In 1870 seven of their children were living with them and the land was valued at $1500 and personal property at $800.  James is listed as a "farmer" and his sons were working the farm.  In 1880 six of their children were living with them, with Mary being the oldest and George the youngest.  In addition, their granddaughter Anna E. Riley, and a paid laborer were in the household.
    James' youngest son, George, would be 9 years old when James died on 9 April 1882.  A total of four children under age 16 would be left to Elizabeth.
     According to a great-grandson's obituary (Floyd H. Riley), James Cooper Riley "helped lay out the town of Hamburg."

Elizabeth Ann DAVIS [Parents] [scrapbook] 1 was born 1, 2, 3, 4 on 11 Nov 1833 in Mississippi. She died 5, 6 on 7 Mar 1910 in Berea, Ashley Co., Arkansas. She was buried 6 on 8 Mar 1910 in Mt. Olive Cemetery, Ashley Co., Arkansas. Elizabeth married 1, 7 James Cooper RILEY on 1 Jan 1851 in Hamburg, Ashley Co., Arkansas.

From the March 10, 1910, Ashley County Eagle:
