Surname: Jung, YOUNG

I am descended from Christian Jung (Young) - son of Michael Jung and Caroline Jung (same last name) who came over from Bavaria to settle in Syracuse in the mid-1800's. Their descendants were very active, in fact according to legend at some point caretakers of Turn Verein in Syracuse. I have pictures of the younger generation Youngs doing gymnastics at events as well as my grandmother's class picture at Turn Verein.
