Personal

Born in Fulham, London, UK, migrated to the U.S. in 1885, where he settled in Chicago, IL, as a child; he spent time in Ann Arbor, MI, at the University of MI completing a degree in engineering, and subsequently worked in Chicago, and Saint Louis, MO, where he resided in 04/1910. In Saint Louis, he worked as a mechanical engineer at a steel foundry, and resided at a rooming house at 523 Pendleton Road. He relocated to Seattle, WA, after 04/1910, where he began working in architecture firms. Young reported an address of 4303 Cascade Drive in Seattle in 09/1918, and lived at 5563 East 43rd Street in a house for which the Youngs took out a mortgage. The Youngs resided at 6848 17th Avenue NE, Seattle in 1942. He died in Seattle, WA, at the age of 70.

According to the U.S. Census of 1900, Bicknell Young, Arrigo's father, (born 04/1856 in UT, perhaps of Mormon heritage) listed his occupation as a musician. Bicknell Young's parents came from NY and MA. His mother was Elisa Young (born 07/1846 in Italy). Both of her parents were Italian. Arrigo's parents married c. 1883. Bicknell and Elisa Young had three sons in 1900: Arrigo, Hilgard Bicknell (born 04/22/1885), and Umberto (born 03/1887) and two others living in their house at that time, a niece, Jane Mackintosh (born 05/1876) and a sister of Bicknell's, Vilate Young (born 10/1846). The family was prosperous enough to have a live-in maid, a Swedish immigrant, Ida Anderson (born 01/1876).

Arrigo Young married Edith Young, born c. 1886; she had been born in India to English parents. Edith Young came to the U.S. in 1910, and was naturalized c. 1911.

Arrigo and Edith Young had a daughter and three sons: Rachael (born c. 1923), Richard (born c. 1922), Thomas (born 1917) and Lawrence (born 1918). Lawrence Hilgard Young died in World War II, a Lieutenant Junior Grade in the United States Naval Reserve.

Arrigo and Bicknell Young traveled on the S.S. Mauretania from Liverpool, UK, to New York, NY, beginning 08/22/1908. Bicknell Young was Arrigo's father; Arrigo's brother, Hilgard Bicknell Young, lived in Chicago, IL, on 09/12/1918. His draft registration card of 09/12/1918 described Young as tall, slender with blue eyes and light brown hair. According to this, he became a citizen because his father had been naturalized before Arrigo's "majority."
