Before the Civil War ended, Armster Young III said his ancestors went to work on the railroad.
Once they finished laying railroad tracks, he said, his relatives took the money they earned, returned to Mississippi and started homesteads and families.
The Young family said they are trying to preserve land that has been in their family since the 1880s land that has more sentimental value than monetary value.
