About Lorenzo S. Young

"...Young, Lorenzo Zobieski, (also spelled Sobieski), one of the two children in the original pioneer company (a child of six years of age at the time), was born March 9, 1841, in Winchester, Morgan Co., Illinois, a son of Lorenzo D. Young and Persis Goodall.

With his father, and his father's second wife, Harriet Decker Young, the boy came to Great Salt Lake Valley in July, 1847.

His second name, Zobieski, was traced back to John III, king of Poland, after whom he was named. Like his father, Lorenzo D. Young, Zobieski, as he was generally called, loved horticulture, and at 85 years of age expressed his joy that winter would soon be gone and he could again work in his garden. He died March 28, 1904, at Shelley, Idaho, survived by several children..."
