Fristoe Laden Perceval Sullivan Taylor Younger

Genealogy of Cole Younger, Missouri Guerrilla.

My people had always been prominent, politically. It was born in the blood. My great grandmother on my father's side was a daughter of "Lighthorse Harry" Lee, whose proud memory we all cherish. The Younger's came from Strasburg, and helped to rule there when it was a free city. Henry Washington Younger, my father, represented Jackson county three times in the legislature, and was also judge of the county court. My mother, who was Bursheba Fristoe of Independence, was the daughter of Richard Fristoe who fought under General Andrew Jackson at New Orleans, Jackson county having been so named at my grandfather Fristoe's insistence. Mother was descended from the Sullivan's, Laden's and Percival's of South Carolina, the Taylor's of Virginia and the Fristoe's of Tennessee, and my grandfather Fristoe was a grand nephew of Chief Justice John Marshall of Virginia.
