Son of President Brigham Young and Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and at the time of his death, President of the Quorum of the Twelve. His father was a widower, with two little girls, and while living in Kirtland, he met Sister Mary Ann Angell. The gift of tongues rested down Upon Elder Young and the interpretation thereof was given by someone present. The Spirit bore record through that tongue that these two faithful souls were designed by God for each other. They were united in marriage, and Sister Mary Ann assumed the care of the motherless children. Brigham, the third child of this marriage, was born amid all the untoward circumstances of the early days in the Church. He was a twin; his sister, Mary, who was brought to death's door in infancy through an accident which was the direct result of the mobbings and drivings of the Saints. Many afflictions he bore to reach the Rocky Mountains with his family. He was ordained an Apostle by his father, Brigham Young, and being selected as a counselor in the First Presidency. He was called by his father to take charge of the affairs of the Church in Cache valley, for which purpose he relocated to Logan.

Young and several forign missions, he was appointed one of the administrators of the estate, in the settlement of which he showed a just and amicable disposition, for which he won the respect and confidence of the Saints generally.
