Our Pioneer Heritage Vol 1, Brigham Young His Wives and Family
For some years practically all of Brigham Young's wives lived in the Bee Hive and Lion Houses, but as the children grew up he either erected or purchased separate homes for several of his wives. In 1869, he bought an old colonial home in Provo where he moved his wife Eliza and her son, Afales. It was here he lived whenever he went to Provo, which was often. In 1878 Eliza returned to Salt Lake City to live and it was her that she died. She was a beautiful woman, a courageous pioneer and added her strengths and talents to the building of the western commonwealth.
