About Margaret Taylor (Young)

Wikipedia Biographical Summary

"...Margaret Young Taylor (24 April 1837 – 3 May 1919) was a member of the inaugural general presidency of what is today the Young Women organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1880 to 1887. She was married to John Taylor, a president of the LDS Church.

Margaret Young was born in Westport, Connecticut. When she was 14 years old, she converted to Mormonism. She became one of the plural wives of church apostle John Taylor and emigrated to Utah Territory in 1858.

In 1880, when Elmina Shepard Taylor became the first general president of the church's Young Ladies' National Mutual Improvement Association, Margaret Taylor was chosen as the first counselor in the presidency. After John Taylor died on 25 July 1887, Margaret Taylor resigned her position and was replaced by Maria Young Dougall.

Taylor died of stomach cancer in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was the mother of nine of John Taylor's 34 children..."
