Discovered by Daniel Boone while on a hunting trip in 1767/68, the Young Salt Works, located
at David, about 8 miles west of Prestonsburg, KY in Floyd County, was run by Alexander, James and
William Young from about 1780 until about 1810. After that it was known as the Middle Creek Salt Works.

Our goal is to eventually have every record available on every ancestor named Young who ever graced the State of Kentucky. Very big goal and we may never reach our goal, but we will continue to move toward it! We covet any Young records you may be willing to contribute. Full credit will be given to each contributor. Other county records will be added as they become available.
