      The oldest son of George and Catherine Younce of Ashe County, NC, was Joseph
      Younce, born December 26, 1806, in Ashe County.  He married in Ashe County,
      August 1, 1823, Elizabeth "Betsy" Sheets, born August 26, 1803, in Ashe
      County.  Their six children were born in Ashe County, prior to their moving
      to Miami County, Ohio, in 1842.



      Now, here is the puzzle.  Joseph's parents, George and Catherine Younce, had
      moved to Miami County, Ohio, several decades earlier, probably between 1809
      and 1812.  George had ten children altogether (including Joseph) and at
      least seven or eight of them were born in Ohio.  Wife Catherine died in
      1828; George remarried, and then he himself died in 1830.  The tenth child,
      Abraham, was born in Ohio in 1829.  Joseph was recognized as living in North
      Carolina in court records following the death of his father.  So the
      question is how and when did Joseph and his father George separate?



      Here are some possibilities:  (1) Joseph, when he was a small child, stayed
      behind in North Carolina when his parents moved to Ohio.  (2) Joseph moved
      with his parents to Ohio, but returned by himself, to North Carolina, when
      he was a teenager, got married, and started his own family.  (3) Both Joseph
      and his father George returned to North Carolina prior to 1823, for some
      reason, and George returned to Ohio while his son Joseph remained behind.
      (4) The Bible records and biographies from which the account above derives,
      are incorrect.
