BIOGRAPHY

Brigham Young McMullin was born March 29, 1851 in Salt Lake City.

The McMullin family settled in Harrisburg in the fall of 1862.

Brigham was Superindendent of the Harrisburg Sunday School from 1876 to 1877.

He married Ada Parker on January 11, 1977.

Brigham & Ada settled permanently in Leeds in 1878.
They first lived in a little rental cottage on the lower part of the lot owned by William Stirling.
They soon bought B. C. Boren's lot which was across the street and took possession of it that summer.
Brigham's father, Willard G. McMullin, built a one-room house on the lot in the summer of 1881.
Over the years additional rooms and upgrades were added.
The McMullin's hosted many guests over the years and their house became known as "The Mormon Hotel".

Brigham served as a counselor to Bishop George H. Crosby of the Leeds Ward (St. George Stake) from 1877
to 1885. He was sustained as Bishop early in 1885, ordained about a year later, and served until 1912.

Brigham was the Constable at Leeds for a long time and
and was President of the Leeds Water Company for about 35 years.
