It is of my great-great grandmother, Holland Obedience "Bedia" DRAKE, born 30 Aug, 1832, died 9 Dec. 1902, buried at Riverside Cemetery, Warren Co. Ky., her son, Andrew Warren "Pete" Young,born July 7, 1871, died 16 Oct, 1941, her daughter, Julia Ann Young, born in 1869, died in Feb 1927.

She married my great-great grandfather, Thomas Columbus Young on June 23, 1851.
