About John Young Greene

Mormon Pioneer

"...Greene, John Young – (3rd Ten) Born Sept. 2, 1826, in new York to John P. and Rhoda Young Greene. His father was the minister to whom a Book of Mormon was given by Samuel H. Smith on the first missionary journey in 1830. This book eventually found its way to Brigham Young, an uncle of John. John joined the Church at a young age. He was assigned to drive Brigham Young's team in the first company. Greene was called to serve a mission in Europe in 1857 and was assigned to Denmark. At the advance of Johnston's army in 1858, he was recalled to Utah, completing a successful mission. After a life of faithful service, he died at his home in Salt Lake City on May 24, 1880, at age 53..."
