Margaret Young

Margaret Young Margaret Youngblood was been born on February 23, 1891 in Detroit, Michigan. She was one of four daughters of Bernard and Minnie (Walters) Youngblood.

Margaret tried to make a comeback in 1949 after years of retirement. She recorded some records for Capitol Records that year. On April 21, 1956, Margaret makes a brief appearence on the CBS Radio Workshop Show "The Record Collectors". The show was hosted by John Dehner and guests included niece Margaret Whiting.

Margaret Young died on May 3, 1969 in Inglewood, California after a brief illness. She was 78 years old at her death. Margaret is buried along side her sister Eleanore Whiting at Holy Cross Cemetery in Los Angeles.
