Julia Powers was born in Wayne Twp., Steuben County, New York on May 15, 1818, to Cyrus & Nancy (Richmond) Powers and was their eldest child.

Julia Powers married Joseph Young on May 4, 1861, in Tiskilwa, Bureau Co., Illinois. Joseph Young was born in 1839 in Rhode Island and died 1914 in Union Co., Iowa. Joseph R. Young's father was Edward Rogers Young by his 2nd wife, Amanda K. Coggeshall, daughter of Caleb & Elizabeth (Hart) Coggeshall of Rhode Island.

Joseph R. & Julia (Powers) Young had two children:

Charlotte Young, b. 1863, in IL (have not found any additional information about her)

Cyrus Edward Young, b. Dec 1866 in Illinois, married Estella A. McDonald, daughter of James & Lucy A. (Withrow) McDonald. There is a wonderful McDonald website that documents the ancestors of James McDonald here.

Many of the Joseph R. & Julia (Powers) Young family moved to Union County, Iowa.
