About Phineas Howe Young

Biographical Summary:

"...Young, Phineas Howe (1847–1868). Born in Winter Quarters, Florence, Nebraska, Phineas was the son of Joseph Young, a painter and glazier brother of the great Brigham; he arrived in the Salt Lake Valley with his family in 1848. Eventually studying art with Dan Weggeland in his teens, Phineas had little time to finish some promising though immature landscapes and genre pictures (plus one known portrait of his Uncle Brigham) before dying of pneumonia in Slat Lake City at the age of twenty. (b. December 31; d. March 13)..."
