Biography*This Ephraim Wessells was called s/o Ephram on his 1837 Acc marriage license to Sarah Young. Although he was not mentioned in Ephraim Wessells Sr.'s will nor Shady's will, he could have been the oldest son and provided for earlier. He was deceased when Shady wrote her will. This is the most likely parents for him. Since his wife Sarah Wessels, thier children, and Sarah's likely mother, Sally Young, were listed in the 1850 Census without him, he evidently died before 1850.

Birth*circa 1776William was born circa 1776 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Census head*1800William was listed as a head of household in the census of in 1800 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. The 1800 Federal Census for Accomack County, Accomack Parish, lists him as William Young Jr., aged 16 to 26 years, with a wife of the same age. Apparently they had a son, for a male under ten years was in the household, as was another male aged 26 to 45 years.. 
Land bought*1800William bought land in 1800 at Accomack Co, VA. While he heired no land, it has been shown that William Young IV bought 25 acres on Guilford Creek from his father in 1800, for which he gave a bond (Acc Co Deeds 1800 - 1804, p. 80). The deed stated this land joined the line of Richard Taylor, as far as Jeremiah Mason's land, and continued to "a Pine that stands by the Warehouse Road.". 
Marriage*circa 1800He married Sally Hinman circa 1800. There is no record of the marriage of William Young IV. It is obvious he had married by 1800 and, from census records and deeds, it is known his wife was named Sarah/Sally. It is likely she was a Hinman, for on 24 November 1834, it was recorded that Mary Mason and Sally Young were the only heirs of Bundick Hinman, a soldier in the Virginia Continental Line in the Revolutionary War (Acc Co Orders 1832 - 1836, p. 385)..2

Anecdote*11 February 1809 On 11 February 1809, William Young & Sally his wife joined with some of his other siblings and sold land to their brother, Robert Young, 3¼ acres for $158.25, "late the property of Major William Young, deceased, near Guilford warehouse" (Acc Co Deeds 1810 - 1812, p. 80). 
Census head1810William was listed as a head of household in the census of in 1810 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. The 1810 census gives William Young's age as 26 to 45 years.. 
Land bought19 July 1817William bought land on 19 July 1817 at Accomack Co, VA. On 19 July 1817, William Young bought 50 acres from Richard Taylor and wife Peggy, for $250 (Acc Co Deeds 1817 - 1818, p. 179). Finally, on 2 September 1819, William Young bought 3 acres from Erastus Poulson for $55 (Acc Co Deeds 1818 - 1819, p. 401).. 
Security on Admin*27 March 1820William was security on the administration of an estate on 27 March 1820 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Elizabeth Baker was granted to William Justice Sr. with William Young (Guildford) and James White (Metompkin) securities..3 
Census head1820William was listed as a head of household in the census of in 1820 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. In 1820, he was still 26 to 45 and in 1830, his age was given as 50 to 60 years, when he would have been circa 54. William Young was not listed by the 1840 census, for he died in 1834.. 
Will*27 February 1834He made a will on 27 February 1834 at Accomack Co, VA. Sell the southwest end of my land adjoining John Wessells Sr. so much as will pay all my debts. 10 yards square of land at my graveyard for my family burying ground. Balance, except my tools, to my wife Sally Young to raise my small children & for a home for my daughter until my son Isaac Young arrives to age 21. Then the balance & all my land, that is not sold to pay my debts, except my tools, to daughters Mary Young, Sally Young, Hannah Young, Ann Young & Elizabeth Young & my son Isaac Young.
