Born in Fulham, London, UK, Young migrated to the U.S. in 1885, where his family settled in Chicago, IL, when he was a child. In 1900, the family had a house in Chicago. 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).

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.

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 Young (born 04/22/1885), and Umberto Young (born 03/1887). Hilgard B. Young, lived in Chicago, IL, on 09/12/1918.

Spouse

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.

Biographical Notes

Arrigo and Bicknell Young traveled on the S.S. Mauretania from Liverpool, UK, to New York, NY, beginning on 08/22/1908.

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."
