Born in Maryland on this date in 1812: third great-grandmother Mary Ann Young (m. Zepp). Lived and was buried in Carroll County, Maryland, at Sams Creek Church of the Brethren (top photo). Her gravestone is in poor condition, with only the broken top portion lying flat on the ground. Shown below with the stone of her husband, Michael Zepp.

Their daughter Mary Zepp married Peter Drayer, and is buried with him in Illinois. I visited the graves of both mother and daughter in 2013.
