Abbott # 430

He worked with his father in the family gristand saw-mills in Farmington until he was 20, then operated them himself until early in 1832, when he and his bro Azmon rem to Richland, Oswego Co., N.Y. There on 29 Dec. 1833 he first heard the gospel of Joseph Smith's ch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and became convinced of its truth. He was bpt and confirmed 1 Jan, 1834, and ordained a teacher the next day. Thereafter his progress was rapid— ordained priest 5 Nov. 1834, elder 28 June 1835, an apostle 26 April 1839. He was spectacularly successful as a missionary in the U.S.A. and England. On 7 April 1889 he became the 4th president of the Mormon ch, in 1890 issuing his manifesto putting an end to the church's approval of plural marriages. He had resided at various times in Richland, N.Y., Kirtland, Ohio, Clay Co., Mo., Nauvoo, Ill. and Salt Lake City, Utah. He was one of the leaders of the Mormoms who trekked from Nauvoo to Utah in 1846-47, after the murder of Joseph and Hyrum Smith by a mob in Nauvoo. Brigham Young was ill of mountain fever and riding as a passenger in Wilford Woodruff's carriage when, on 24 July 1847, the cavalcade came through the pass and beheld the valley where they later built Salt Lake City. It was then that Young spoke the oft-quoted words, "This is the place!". On top of a tall monument built a few years ago near that historic spot are three bronze figures,— Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, and Wilford Woodruff. He dedicated the Temple in Apr. 1893.

Note he married a 15 and a 19 year old, his third and fouth wives on the same day. At 89 he ended plural marriages in the Morman Church, (no doubt based on his lifelong experience with the institution!)
