About Clarissa Clara Young

"...Clara Decker Young was born July 22, 1828 at Freedom, Cattaraugus County, New York, the daughter of Isaac Decker and Harriet Page Wheeler. The Decker family moved to Ohio, Missouri, thence to Illinois. When she was sixteen years of age she married Brigham Young, May 8 , 1844, and remained at the side of her husband in the exodus from Nauvoo and Winter Quarters. When the pioneer band, led by her great and wise husband, set out on their momentous journey in the spring of 1847, she made that pilgrimage to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake..."
