Brigham Young's Cursed Gold
Brigham Young's Cursed Gold
There was to be an episode of X Files that involved a monster in a gold mine. Somehow before it was made it morphed into an episode in which our heroes were trapped in a Florida apartment building during a hurricane. The monster stalking them now was a water monster.

Within our family we have the unsolved mystery of Brigham Young's cursed gold. In the early days of the Mormon church Brigham Young was seeking to make a self sufficient society. He discouraged mining because of the outside influence and money such and operation would normally require.

One day in the area now known as Tooele County near Lake Point and Stansbury Park, Mormon Convert and sheepherder, Jack Croslin was tending his flock in one of the areas many canyons. Eventually some of the sheep wandered higher in the canyon. As he followed the wondering animals he happened upon an outcropping of milky quartz richly streaked with gold.

He knew Brigham Young's view on the matter, but surly he couldn’t just leave all of that money lay there. He met with his local bishop who only confirmed Young's views on the matter. He then made the trip to Salt lake and met with Brigham Young himself. Legend has it that during that meeting that Brigham told Croslin that anyone who attempted to retrieve that gold would be cursed.

In small communities secrets don't exist. Soon everyone knew why he had ventured to Salt Lake. He was pressed for more information, but he let only small clues slip and kept the exact location to himself.

A few years latter Croslin's brother in law began selling pieces of raw gold. People assumed that Croslin was either mining the gold himself or had revealed the exact location to his brother in law. Croslin denied this. It's possible the brother in law stumbled across the find on his own but no one will ever know because soon after he was found dead in the Oquirrh Range foothills with no apparent cause of death!

The locals assumed it was the result of Brigham Young's curse. Shortly after that when Croslin himself died in a sawmill accident it was assumed it happened because he had revealed the location of the gold.

It wasn't long after that the curse claimed it's next victim. Two brothers, Croslin's nephews, were rumored to be in possession of a map with the location of the mine. For some reason the brothers began to argue. Perhaps greed was in full affect and they couldn't decide how to split the gold. Perhaps it was simply the curse because one brother shot and killed the other. He then ran away never to be heard from again.

Depending on who's telling the story the next chapter occurs when Wild Bill Hickman, excommunicated Mormon, disgraced former bodyguard and spy for Brigham Young and alleged assassin befriended the Widow Croslin in an attempt to get his hands on the gold. Since federal marshals were on his trail and he was about to be arrested he fled to Wyoming territory where he died in poverty. The widow became an outcast because of her association with Hickman.

No one dared search for the gold again until after Brigham Young's death in 1877. As far as is known the gold is still out there. Elements of the story are certainly true, however you'll have to decide if the curse is reality.

Brigham Young's Mystey Wife.
Brigham Young's Mystey Wife.
This daguerreotype, a type of photograph made on a polished sheet of silver-plated copper, was part of the Mormon churches archives and was cataloged as a photograph of Brigham Young and Wife. Photos of Young posing with one of his wives are rare and this one is a mystery because the face of the woman has been obliterated.

Deepening the mystery the original has vanished from the archives. Daguerreotypes are always one of a kind and duplication is not possible. However it was lucky that at some point someone from a Salt Lake City newspaper took a conventional photograph of the original and it was saved in their archives.

From his apparent age and his clothing, in particular the floral print scarf which has been seen in other images experts date the photo from about 1850 to 1854.

By 1854 Young had 54 different wives. A definitive declaration as to which one might be the now faceless one is not possible. A strong clue might be the native American style beaded bracelets she is wearing which might suggest she is one of three of the wives that had a native background. Alternatively it might be one of the wives that were known to be active in native charities.

While daguerreotypes are relatively fragile the damage certainly appears deliberate. The why is as much a mystery as the who. Could it have been done to wipe out a clearly native face? Was it out of jealousy? The picture of Young is arguably one of the best ever taken of him. Being in the prime of life and before the pressures of being Governor of Utah had taken their toll it is the closest thing to a smile ever captured on his face. Clearly someone cared about half of the photo.

The 1907 Book "History of the Brigham Family" seemed relieved that Brigham young was not a Brigham. However they were wrong, My 5th cousin 6 times removed. He may be controversial, but how many people can say they have a relative that started a religion?
