About Joseph Angell Young

Wikipedia Biographical Summary:

"...Joseph Angell Young (October 14, 1834 – August 5, 1875) was an apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Young is one of the few Latter-day Saints in history to have been ordained to the office of apostle without ever becoming a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles or the First Presidency of the church.

Young was born in Kirtland, Ohio, the eldest child of Brigham Young and Mary Ann Angell. He was baptized into the church in Kirtland by his father at the age of eight. In 1847, Young traveled with his family and a group of Mormon pioneers from Nauvoo, Illinois to the Utah Territory..."

"...Young married Margaret Whitehead, a native of England..."

"...In 1864, Brigham Young ordained three of his sons to the priesthood office of apostle—Brigham Young, Jr., John Willard Young, and Joseph Angell. Unlike his two brothers, Joseph Angell would never become a member of the First Presidency nor, like Brigham Jr., a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles..."

"...'[He died] unexpectedly in Manti, Utah Territory at the age of forty. He was buried in the Brigham Young Cemetery in Salt Lake City..."
