John Brough was born on 13 March 1831 in Hawthorn, Durham, England. He was the third child of Edward Brough and Jane Thwaite.

John Brough married Eliza Clark on 3 February 1853 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England. While living in Yorkshire they had three children (Edward Brough, b.1854; Jane Elizabeth Brough, b.1855; and Frederick Brough, b.1863), and John worked as a "Tailor".

In 1849, John Brough joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). In 1866, he and his wife, Eliza (who had joined the LDS Church in 1845), and their three children, left England and immigrated to the United States--where they settled in Salt Lake City, Utah.

While living in Salt Lake City, Utah, John and Eliza had two more children (John Henry Brough, b.1866; and Clara Emma Brough, b.1870). John's wife, Eliza, died on 14 June 1883 and was buried on 17 June 1883 in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.

Following the death of his first wife, Eliza, John Brough married Sarah Christian Elizabeth Harvey on 10 January 1886 in Salt Lake City. They had two children (Elsie Harvey Brough, b.1886; and Ralph H. Brough, b.1888). Sarah Harvey Brough died on 27 May 1937 and was buried on 29 May 1937 in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.

John Brough was a Mormon pioneer and "Tailor" in Salt Lake City. He died on 10 September 1915 and was buried on 12 September 1915 in the Salt Lake City Cemetery (Plot K. Block 2, Lot 4, Grave 1 Est in the North half).

John Brough and his two wives and two of their children are buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. Unfortunately, prior to 2014, no gravestone memorials existed for John Brough and his family members. In August 2014, the Brough Family Organization commissioned Bountiful Memorial Art Company to construct a gravestone memorial to John Brough and his family. On September 16, 2014, this memorial was placed within the gravesite area (K-2-4-1EN2) where John Brough and his family members are buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.
