Polston, Young surnames in Texas

I have been trying to locate information on my father's family for over a year now with no luck. Here is the information I have been able to confirm. GreatGrandmother is Martha J. Polston.

My Grandfather's name was Ab.H. Young b) 11 Oct 1875 in ?? d) 20 Jan 1927 Coleman Tx, (Burkett,TX) buried in Stephenville, Erath Co. Tx ( West End Cemetery). I went to Coleman TX last week. I was able to find that my Grandfather Ab Young's legal name was Albert Henry Young. On the death index filed in the courthouse shows his parents to be B.C. Young and Martha Polston. Martha's name on her head stone is shown as Mrs. M. J. Young, and my grandfather's name is shown as A. B. Young on his headstone. He is buried in a curbed area with Mrs. M.J. Young b) 10 June 1841 d) 4 July 1908 and T.O. Young b) 16 Oct 1896 d) 1 Oct 1909.

Right across from the curbed area is buried Fredrick R. Young b) 11 Feb 1820 in London England d) 7 Nov 1908 in Bronte Tx. and his wife Abigal.

Ab.H. Young and my Grandmother LouElla Jennings Boyle Tabor Young lived in the Burkett/Cross Plains area of Coleman County TX and were married in Coleman Co.Tx.

My father (Leslie Allen Young)was born in Voss, Tx 13 Dec 1918 and died in Coleman Tx 31 Oct 1981, married Gladys A. Hanke in Brown Co., Tx. My uncle (William Albert Young) was born in Robert Lee Tx 12 Oct 1917 and died 26 Jan 1974 according to his Obituary. He married Mildred Irene Frits in Odessa, Ector Co. Tx. I am not sure where my aunt (Hallie Y Young) was born but she was born on 30 NOV 1914. She married Otto Leichliter. She was the oldest of the three she died in Midland Tx.23 DEC 1989. They were orphaned when their mother died in 1920, and their father in 1927. The three of them lived with family members of their mothers Louella Jennings.

Now you know what I know about my Young family connections. I appreciate any thing you can offer to my search. Thank you so much for responding!

It is my understanding that Will H. Young (who lived in Erath Co, Tx) was my father's Uncle. I am attaching a card that he used when running for Sheriff of Erath Co. I don't know for sure that this is his information or not but this is what I have found YOUNG, WILLIAM 462-05-0942 9 SEP 1877 JAN 1967 STEPHENVILLE,

if the above isn't his it was believed that he and his wife moved to Quanah Tx where their son lived. This is what I found there

Hardeman County, Texas -Goodlett Cemetery
Young W. NE 20 Young, Millisie C. May 14, 1876-September 04, 1942
Young W. NE 20 Young, William H. May 9, 1866-July 26, 1946
