On January 19, 1900, 29-year old Herbert and 25-year old William had their first view of Honolulu; shortly after, Jack, age 18, arrived on October 16, 1900;, Edgar, arrived in July 1901. The boys planned “to take passengers out to the reef surrounding the (Honolulu) harbor”.
They also added other adventure, shark hunting, and, an idea of Jack ”For the first time in the history of the field and gun were flying fish flushed with a steam launch and shot on the wing.” Regularly, the brothers were called upon to help in rescue and salvage operations; and, what they became known for, an interisland freight company. Young Brothers continues today. The youngest of the Young Brothers, Jack, is my grandfather.
