Daughter of Brigham Young and Clarissa Ross

Married William Bernard Dougall, 1 Jun 1868, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah

Children - William Bernard Jr. Dougall, Hugh Willard Dougall, William Bernard Dougall, Teressa Dougall, Clarissa Dougall, Catherine MacSwain Dougall

Clarissa received all the advantages of her father's progressive ideas in education, having been provided a private teacher and school-room along with the other children. Not a daughter of President Young lacked for musical talent and most of them were, for those days, superior musicians. Maria was one of D.O. Calder's soloists in his famous pioneer singing school.

Maria Young was married to William B. Dougall. Her marriage was a happy one and five children were born to them.

From her early years Maria was earnestly engaged in doing good, both in public and private life. She was one of the counselors to her sister, Ella Y. Empey, in the first Betrenchment Association. In 1879 she was made president of the Seventeenth Ward Association and later a counselor to Mary A. Freeze, first president of the Salt Lake Stake Y.L.M.I.A. and in 1887 counselor to President Elmina S. Taylor. She was active in Primary Association, the Woman's Co-operative Store and upon the completion of the Salt Lake Temple was called to serve, a work she continued for thirty years. She also acted as a guide on Temple Square.

On three different occasions Mrs. Dougall attended the conventions of the Council of Women, at Chicago, Omaha and Washington, D.C. All this in addition to her duties in the Mutual Improvement Association. She was, indeed, a character of force, strength and dedication.
