Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 058
Description door, and whom he introduced as his wife, Mr. Young presented the infant to T. as his namesake. They had come across from the San Pete country to see us, and the baby was taking its first journey in the open air. It was a bright lively little thing, and lay on my knee basking in the warmth of the fire as the elders sat talking in one room, while Mrs. Thompson prepared supper in the other. She had a young girl to help her, but more than all, she had "faculty," and her meals were served with as much heat in them and coolness in herself, as if she had not both her rooms filled with guests and children. When I recollected how many bowls and pans and plates I use when I try to make cake, and what a mess of sticky things I leave the cook to clear away, I could not but express my wonder at her deft wavs. She came in after her tea-things were washed up, and sat praised her. I to help her dren in her beside me with her knitting. She liughed when I saying that it was no wonder-she had "had a girl these three weeks"-but she never found the chil- way; they were a help. And so they were, the little eldest unrobing the younger ones for bed, or waiting at table without needing directions. They were well-trained, as well as healthy rosy children, and a little creature, who could scarcely speak plainly, sat on my knee, and carolled like a lark, "Up in the morning early," and "Put me in my little bed"; a still church. He died a few years later, August 5, 1875. Jenson, Biographical Encyclo- pedia, qr8-19. Mahonri Moriancamur Young became the father of Mahonri Mackintosh Young, perhaps Utah's most famous artist. Joseph and Mahonri were half-brothers -Mahonri Moriancamur was the son of Maria Allen.
