 Miriam <I>Works</I> Young

Photo added by Nancy Hills Lamps

Miriam Works Young

  • Birth 7 Jun 1806 Aurelius, Cayuga County, New York, USA
  • Death 8 Sep 1832 Mendon, Monroe County, New York, USA
  • Burial Mendon, Monroe County, New York, USA
  • Memorial ID 6939784

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.
