Salvation – J.W. Young Brings the Rail


  1. Patricia Jones

    John Willard Young is my great grandfather. I believe records show he had 4 wives (polygamous). My great grandmother Luella was his 4th wife. They had four children. After polygamy became illegal in Utah (1890?) Luella left him, remarried and became a Christian Scientist and lived in the Midwest.
    My research shows that John W failed in his railroading business finally and died alone (alienated from Utah relatives) and poor in NYC (92nd St and Broadway). One of his sons, from a different wife, was an infamous convicted murderer in NYC.
