      After a very long time of searching, I have finally found a census reading
      for the eldest child of Philip & Margaret (Burket) Younce, John who was born
      6 May 1809.  While I have yet to find him in 1850, in 1860 as John Yantz,
      his address is P.O. Pendleton, Fall Creek Twp., Madison Co., IN in which KY
      is listed as his birth state.  His real estate is valued at 1,300.  It would
      be interesting to know when the land was bought and sold.  He was elected to
      the ministry in the Brush Creek district of Miami Co., OH in 1840 and
      ordained an elder in 1846 presumably in the Mississinewa district of
      Delaware Co., IN.  He died in 1865 and is buried in Union Cemetery near
      Eaton IN.  His widow, the former Lucinda (Michael) Thomas is listed in Union
      Twp., Delaware Co., IN in 1870 and 1880

      I am wondering if Philip & Margaret went to Muhlenberg Co. KY with Lawrence
      Younce.  Do we have any idea when the latter moved there?  I have not
      discovered members of the Burket family stopping in KY.

      Jim Shuman, can you identify which congregation John would have been
      associated with while living in Madison County?

      Regarding Philip Younce and where he may have been, I have shared with Merle Rummel that I think there was a 4 year period from 1809, when Philip is reported in a history as having come to KY.   He is reported by grandson Wm H Younts, to have arrived in Miami Co OH in 1813, though he was supposed to be there for the treaty signing in 1812.  There is some information that he participated in some military or scouting War of 1812 activities which gained him a bounty land warrant.  That needs to be checked out also.  We have given an approximate date of 1808 for his marriage to Margaret Byrket based on John Younce's age.



      Regarding John's birthplace, I think it's shaky to rely on a person's self-report in census of his/her birthplace.  How often we have seen those self-reported wrong or conflicting in different censuses.



      Where Philip Younce was in KY, whether he was married at the time, and how long he stayed in one place is open to question and needs to be proven.  Thus far I have not found mention of him in a cursory search of Muhlenberg Co land and other records.  I have not conduced a search in Muhlenburg Co.

      The Journal, Greenville, Ohio, 24 January 1895

      (from an account of the first Swinger family reunion held at the Swinger home NW of Painter Creek, Ohio)
      …..

      At first there were no religious meetings.  Later, Philip Younce, a German Baptist minister of West Milton, and Wm. Miles of Ludlow Creek, and a minister of the Christian church began holding religious services in dwelling homes.  Although the roads were impassable much of the year and no salary held out as an inducement, yet their appointments were very zealously and faithfully filled.  At one time, after some heavy rains had greatly raised the streams and when Rev. Younce was on his way to fill an appointment, he was met by a messenger who informed him that Painter Creek was so high that it was impossible to cross.  Upon this the Reverend replied, "My horse can swim and not until greater hindrance than high water obstruct my course I shall not cancel my appointment in this good cause."  The faithful horse carried the daring minister safely over the deep water and the appointment was filled according to previous announcement.
