Katharine Smith Salisbury Younger
Birth: Jul. 8, 1813
Grafton County
New Hampshire, USA
Death: Feb. 1, 1900
Fountain Green
Hancock County
Illinois, USA

Katharine (Catherine, Katherine) Smith Salisbury, the second daughter and seventh surviving child of Joseph Sr., and Lucy Mack Smith, and sister of the Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith. She was an eyewitness to many important events of the Restoration, including hefting the covered gold plates after Joseph had brought them into the Smith home. Shortly after the plates were retrieved, Katharine was active in ensuring the safety of the plates—on one occasion hiding them in her bedcovers as a mob searched the Smith family home. She was subsequently baptized by David Whitmer in Seneca Lake at the Church's first conference, held 9 June 1830. Katharine married Wilkins Jenkins Salisbury on 8 January 1831, shortly after the New York Saints migrated to Kirtland. He died 27 November 1853. She married Joseph Younger around 1853 in Illinois. It's unknown when they divorced. She fully accepted her brother's calling as a prophet of God, and testified to the same throughout her prolonged life.
