Young was born possibly on March 4, 1781, in Maryland to unknown parents.
Several trees on ancestry.com have his parents as John Dunbar (1740-1785/1797) and Millicent Clarridge (1749-1818), but there isn't any verifiable proof.
Young married Elizabeth Dilworth on November 14, 1805, in Rockingham County, North Carolina.
Young possibly died on August 23, 1846, Washington County, Alabama.
