John Young (1763–1839) was an early convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His entire family of adult children joined the Church, and his son Brigham Young became its second president and prophet.

The above photo depicts John's sons Lorenzo Dow Young , Brigham Young, Phinehas Young, Joseph Young, and John Young Jr. I haven't been able to find any pictures of his daughters Nancy Young Kent, Fanny Young Murray, Rhoda Young Green, Nabby Young (who died young), Susannah Young Little, or Louisa Young Sanford.
