About Ann Eliza Dee Young (Webb)

Wikipedia Biographical Summary

"...Ann Eliza Young (September 13, 1844–1925) also known as Ann Eliza Webb Dee Young Denning was one of Brigham Young's fifty-five wives and later a critic of polygamy. She spoke out against the suppression of women and was an advocate for women's rights during the 19th century.

She was born in 1844 in Nauvoo, Illinois to Chauncey Griswold Webb and his wife, born Eliza Jane Churchill.

Webb married James Dee monogamously on April 4, 1863 in Salt Lake City, Utah. They had two children together and later divorced. ..."

"...On the advice of her family Webb later married Brigham Young, the second president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), when he was 67 years old and she was a 24-year-old divorcee.

Although she later called herself Young's "wife no. 19," others have referred to her as his "27th wife." One researcher concluded that she was actually the 52nd woman to marry Young.The discrepancies may be due, in part, to difficulties in defining what constitutes a 'wife' in early Mormon polygamous practices..."

"...After her divorce from Brigham Young, she married 53-year-old Moses R. Denning of Manistee, Michigan, a non-Mormon and wealthy logger known to have only one arm. Two years prior to her marriage to Denning, Ann Eliza stayed at the home of Denning, who at the time was married with children. Because of Denning's financial stability, Ann Eliza lost interest in her crusade against Mormonism and polygamy and stopped delivering lectures the week she married Denning..."
