About Eliza Young (Burgess)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Brigham_Young%27s_wives

"...For some years practically all of President Young's wives lived in the Beehive and Lion House, but as the children grew up he either erected or purchased separate homes for several of his wives. In 1869 President Young bought an old colonial home in Provo where he moved his wife Eliza and her son, Alfales. It was here he lived whenever he went to Provo, which was often, as he was deeply interested in the Brigham Young Academy, the Co-operative Woolen Manufacturing Company and other industries. In 1878 she returned to Salt Lake City to live and it was here Eliza Burgess Young passed away in August, 1915. She was the last surviving wife of Brigham Young. She was a beautiful woman, a courageous pioneer and added her strength and talents to the building of the western commonwealth..."
