John Brough (1831-1915), "Tailor" of Durham, England, and
Salt Lake City, Utah
John Brough, born in 1831 in Durham,
England, immigrated to Utah in the mid-1800's. Most of his living descendants
now reside in the western United States. The following is a brief account
of John Brough.
John Brough was born on 13 March 1831 in
Hawthorn, Durham, England. He was the third child of Edward Brough and
John Brough married Eliza Clark on 3 February
1853 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England. While living in Yorkshire they had
three children (Edward Brough, b.1854; Jane Elizabeth Brough, b.1855;
and Frederick Brough, b.1863), and John worked as a "Tailor".
In 1849, John Brough joined The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). In 1866, he and his wife,
Eliza (who had joined the LDS Church in 1845), and their three children,
left England and immigrated to the United States--where they settled in
Salt Lake City, Utah.
While living in Salt Lake City, Utah, John
and Eliza had two more children (John Henry Brough, b.1866; and Clara
Emma Brough, b.1870). John's wife, Eliza, died on 14 June 1883 and was
buried on 17 June 1883 in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.
Following the death of his first wife, Eliza,
John Brough married Sarah Christian Elizabeth Harvey on 10 January 1886
in Salt Lake City. They had two children (Elsie Harvey Brough, b.1886;
and Ralph Harvey Brough, b.1888). Sarah Harvey Brough died on 27 May 1937
and was buried on 29 May 1937 in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.
John Brough was a Mormon pioneer and "Tailor"
in Salt Lake City. He died on 10 September 1915 and was buried on 12 September
1915 in the Salt Lake City Cemetery (Plot K, Block Block 2, Lot 4, Grave
1 East in the North half).
On September 16, 2014, the Brough Family
Organization placed a gravestone memorial to John Brough and his family
in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. This memorial was officially dedicated
on August 7, 2015 by R. Shane Brough, President of the Brough Family Organization.
