About Susannah Young
"...Daughter of Henry Snively and Mary Havener
Married Brigham Young, 2 Nov 1844, Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois
History - Susan received the Gospel in 1836, moved to Springfield, Illinois, lived there with her sister for five years, then moved to Nauvoo where she and her sister built a home, or had one built, which they paid for from their own earnings. She was married to Brigham Young, with Parley P. Pratt officiating.
Susan was energetic and industrious, and ever ready to render aid in every way possible to the needy, or to those in distress. "Aunt" Susan, as she was fondly called, was faithful unto her death. She was a woman of strong will power, positive and determined in her general bearing, yet kind and accommodating.
President Young owned a large farm on the outskirts of Salt Lake City on which he erected a farmhouse. It was here that Susan Snively Young lived for many years, cooking for the men who worked on the farm, caring for the poultry and overseeing the making of the butter and cheese which supplied his large family with part of their living..."

Note: "I've removed the link between Susannah Snively Young and an unproven daughter Julia Young Burton because a couple of sources say that she "Had no issue". Here is Julia Young Burton's link, who prior to Nov. 2010 was listed as a daughter of Brigham Young and Susannah Snively in case this was a mistake. If you have documentation link her back in.
Find a grave has her linked with a daughter plus a couple of family trees on ancestry and one patron submission in newfamily.search but all of these are undocumented.
