of Western Pennsylvania
prepared by: Donna Younkin Logan
This family settled in the Westmoreland and Armstrong county area of Western Pennsylvania. I have PLACED these four children: Michael, Jacob, William and Samuel, as brothers for convenience, there is no proof they are brothers. What they do have in common is their location in Pennsylvania and the "s" spelling of the last name. "History Of Indiana County, Pa." says "on coming from Germany, Jacob B. Younkins grandfather first settled in Easton PA." (Michael Younkins was Jacob B's grandfather. )

offered here are essentially a stepping off point for your own research.
Most of the records you will find here were researched by myself in the
graveyards, courthouses, etc. of Western and Eastern Pennsylvania.
Occasionally descendants have been PLACED with a family because I felt there was just cause for that possibility. Nothing here is "engraved in stone". I welcome corrections, additions, and deletions or any other changes descendants may have to offer but would appreciate your providing the sources for these changes.
