Dr. John Haynes Young - brother to Rachel Young Loyd

John Haynes Young was born in Monroe County, Mississippi in 1849 to William A. Young and Elizabeth C. "Bettie" Evans. The Young family lived near present-day Splunge, just across the state line from the Pine Springs area of what was then Marion County, Alabama but is now Lamar County. They settled there in the 1830s, arriving from Kentucky but there is some thought that the Youngs were in Abbeville District, South Carolina before Kentucky.
According to Dr. John H. Young's biographical sketch that appeared in the 1892 publication "A Memorial and Biographical History of Johnson and Hill Counties, Texas," he studied medicine under Dr. A. L. Moorman of Bexar, Alabama and subsequently attended the University of Louisville and the Kentucky School of Medicine. Upon completion of his coursework in 1878, he returned to Alabama where he practiced medicine in Lamar County until 1886 when he
moved to near the Itasca community in Hill County, Texas. He died there in 1929.
