This link for Young & Co (1850-1853) says that they succeeded Nelson A. Young, and was a partnership between Young's widow and Buckley. This firm was succeeded by H.P. Buckley as Steven posted above. (same caveats as Steven - from other information on the site, it seems the information comes from an article on "Some Old Jewellers of New Orleans" from an old trade journal)

Just out of curiosity's sake, do you have photos
of the watch/movement that was in this case. :)
It doesn't matter if it's European made.

First, thanks to Steven & Pat for the info on the watch paper… Rob, the watch is English
and I picked it up on an online auction … was kind of a long shot, but it was worth it ..
Movement cleaned, oiled and runs pretty good …. Also has a Massey II roller, which I was hoping for … “Needed” one for my Tobias collection ….. Plus the Lord St marking is something I have not seen on a full plate movement, was a usually seen on 3/4 plate movements ….. New Orleans was a good American market for the Tobias family
