Elmina Cleghorn was the first wife of Morris William Cash. She wasthe daughter of Nancy Jones and
James Cleghorn who died in 1832 in Hall Co. Ga.
Notes for NANCY JANE YOUNG:
Nancy Jane Young was the second wife of Morris William Cash, and the direct ancestress of Thelma Faye Cain Prince, the compiler of this genealogy. Nancy Jane Young's parents are unproven, but it is believed that she was the daughter of Warren Young and her mother was Linney Asbury Young. Warren was the son of Stephen Young of Madison Co. Ga. Warren died prior to 1827, because his orphans drew land in the 1827 Land Lottery;however all their names were not given in that record.
Nina Mae Cash Sells, daughter of Willis Warren Cash, and
grandaughter of Nancy Jane Young Cash told me that Nancy had a sister, Celia Young Orr of Hall Co. Ga.
