Catherine Reese Married Zephaniah Clawson 8 January 1824. They had six children. Susanna, Hyrum Bradley, John Reese, Louisa P., Helen Cordelia, and Harriet Cornelia . Susanna and Louisa died as small children. Zephaniah disappeared and it is believed he died in a steamboat explosion on the Ohio river. Catherine crossed the plains with the second Brigham Young wagon train in 1848 with three of her children. Her son John enlisted in the Mormon Battalion. On the cemetery records there is an unknown Clawson buried in section B with no headstone. The death date is the same as Catherine's so it is believed that it is her. Catherine in 1844 married Howard Egan as a plural wife. In 1852 Catherine divorced Egan and on June 10, 1855, Catherine became a wife to Brigham Young. Her grandson was Rudger J. Clawson, an apostle of the LDS church.
