About Hannah Dorcas Young (Tapfield)

Hannah Dorcus Tapfield King Young, 1807-1886, was born in Cambridge, England.

Hannah married Thomas Owen King in April 1824. She converted to Mormonism around 1850-51 and immigrated to Utah in 1853. Her husband did not join the Church but was willing to emigrate to America with her and their children: Georgiana (twenty-two), Louise (twenty), Bertha (nineteen), and Thomas Owen (thirteen)..."

"...She was a notable writer and poet; her numerous poems were often published in the Woman's Exponent and the Deseret News. She was sealed to Brigham Young for eternity in 1872. This sealing did not affect her relationship with her husband, and she never became part of the Brigham Young household..."
