Knox County, Steen Twp., page 558

HANNIBAL YOUNG, a successful farmer of this county was born in Crawford County, Illinois, January 26, 1831, and is one of twelve children born to Thomas and Lucy "Barbee" Young, who were natives of Kentucky. They are of English extraction.

Hannibal was reared upon a farm, and had the advantages of the common schools. He was left an orphan at the age of fourteen years, and he then came to Knox County to live with his brother John, who now resides in Palmyra Township. Here he remained until attaining his majority. He started in life with no capital excepting his two hands and indomitable courage. He worked as a farm hand for some time, receiving $10 per month for his services. By his industry and economy, in ten years' time he had saved enough money to enable him to purchase a small home. In 1858 he sold this and removed to Illinois, and after remaining three years, he returned and purchased eighty acres of land in Steen Township. In 1865 he purchased his present farm of 125 acres of land, which is now well improved and makes them a comfortable home, the result of his own labor. He is a Republican in politics, and held the office of justice of the peace four years.

He was married March 15, 1865, to MISS CATHERINE BARLOW, of this county.  They are the parents of these children: Lucy A., Lilly May, and Myrtle A.   Mrs. Young is a member of the Presbyterian Church.
I have been unable to determine who her parents are?  Can anyone help?
