Banishing her to St. George

See the source image
Susa Young Gates

Why did Brigham Young banish his daughter, Susa, to St. George?
a.            For non-payment of tithing
b.            For skipping her meetings
c.             For dating a non-member
d.            For helping her sister elope
Yesterday’s answer:
A   Brigham Young’s family had him put behind bars
From the life of George Q. Cannon:   As Brigham Young’s personal secretary, Cannon was appointed chief executor of the will.
Settlement of the estate was complicated by a suit filed by several Young heirs, resulting in three weeks imprisonment for Cannon and his co-executors Brigham Young, Jr., and Albert Carrington. In prison Cannon entertained may visitors and frequently granted inmate requests to “preach to the spirits in prison.”
