Elizabeth Young, 27, was born in Scotland and later emigrated to Chicago, Illinois, United States.  Elizabeth was married to Charles Young, and they lived with James and Margaret Murray and their son Walter at 6853 South Green Street.  Both husbands were employed by the Chicago City Railways Company and did not sail with their wives on Lusitania’s last crossing.
