John Young (1763 - 1825) was the founder of Youngstown, Ohio, a village that eventually became one of the nation's largest steel producers. Young, a native of New York, first surveyed the area in 1796 and settled there soon after. On February 9, 1797, he purchased the entire township, 15,560 acres (63 km²), from the Western Reserve Land Company for $16,085. He plotted the town in that year, which was recorded on August 19, 1802, with the date and name of "Youngstown, 1797". Young lived in the area from 1799 to 1803.
