    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Homer and Berdie YOUNG which was taken at the Criley & Wagner Studio in Butler, PA. The photograph was taken in the 1880's with the two likely in their teens at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding this family: Homer Murtland YOUNG was b. 5 Nov 1874 in Butler, PA to parents Simon Young Jr. (1838-1901) and Anna or Ann Eliza MURTLAND (1841-1920).

Homer married Sarepta Amy MCCANDLESS (1883-1964) and together they had 10 children including, Lena Thelma; Celia Alberta; Amy Viola; Elzie Merriett; Mary Elvina; Alva Dewitt; Calvin Homer; Gladys Gertrude; and Woodrow Wilson YOUNG along with one other child, all born between 1902 and 1920.
