Brigham Young Jr. was named after one of the most valiant men in modern Israel. His mother was a courageous woman of great faith. His parents met at a fast and testimony meeting in Kirtland in 1833, where Brigham Young, a widower and father of two small children, spoke with the gift of tongues. When one of the brethren gave the interpretation, the message was that Brother Young and Miss Mary Ann Angell should be married. The spirit bore witness to Mary Ann, and soon thereafter she became Brigham’s wife and the mother of his two children. Within three years three more children were born, including twins, a son and daughter, who were given the names of Brigham and Mary. During the trying exodus of the Saints from Missouri, Brigham Jr.’s two-year-old twin sister, Mary, was run over by the wheels of a loaded wagon. Her mother molded the child’s crushed skull back into shape and with great faith begged God to spare her life. Mary recovered completely.
