Born in Vermont in 1801, Brigham Young became a skilled carpenter, glazier, painter, and joiner before joining the Church in 1832 with his wife, Miriam. She died later that year and Brigham moved his family to Kirtland, where he married Mary Ann Angell. Brigham was ordained an apostle in 1840 and succeeded Joseph Smith as the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1847. He led the Saints to Utah in 1846 and served as governor of Utah Territory from 1850-57. Sometimes called “The American Moses,” Brigham directed the establishment of more than 350 settlements in the western United States. He died on August 29, 1877.
