Biography

Harriet Elizabeth Young born in Oneida County, New York and md 02 Nov 1843 at Nauvoo to Mormon Church Leader Brigham Young (1801-1877). Only 1 child together. Her only recorded marriage.

"At the north end of the home (The Lion House?) was the schoolroom. It was well equipped. Great Grandmother Harriet Cook (or Campbell) taught the children of the family. She was the fourth wife of Great Grandfather. She married Brigham Young the 1st of November in 1843. The Prophet Joseph Smith performed the ceremony. When Harriet's father realized she was serious about going to the West with the Pioneers, he gave her Five Hundred Dollars in gold to help her in her journey. She came in 1848 with Great Grandfather Brigham who was making his second trip. My Great Grandmother's family never came to Utah as they were Quakers. Her picture shows lines and features in her face very much like mine. She had a formal education in her youth. She was an excellent cook. She made lots of bread. She was a very good seamstress. She worked in ZCMI. She helped her only son, Oscar Brigham, on his mission and sent him extra money to tour Europe on his way home.
