****************************
  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.
