Miriam Works Young
Birth: Jun. 7, 1806
Aurelius
Cayuga County
New York, USA
Death: Sep. 8, 1832
Mendon
Monroe County
New York, USA

Miriam was the first wife of Brigham Young.

Someone wrote me saying: "Your photo identified as Miriam Works Young is misleading and incorrect. Miriam Works Young died in 1832, but photography wasn't invented until well after she died."

The photo he is talking about was a picture of a tombstone put up by relatives in the year mentioned. No one should think that the picture was taken in 1832. The relatives wanted to leave a remembrance of Miriam Young many years after her death. This is often done.
