    Re: of vs. from

    Welcome to the board, BjoeR.

    Neither of them is correct.

    Please give us at least a full sentence.

    I don't know what you want to say.

    OK. Here is the full sentence:

    As the youngest (of/from) my brother and two cousins, I was used to being ignored, threatened and abused.

    Thanks.

    "Among" would be the best. "Of" would work.
