One thought on “Young, J

  1. Judith Matheson

    I believe this is my grandfather Joseph Young, born in 1884. I have a photograph of him in the University rowing team during his time there.

    I can find very little information about him prior to 1901 when, at age 17 he is listed in the Census as a shifter in a coal mine in Northumberland. Although I have fond memories of him when I was a child.

    If there is any further information that anyone can supply, I would be extremely grateful.
