As a young boy, Brigham Young did a lot of the house work. Some of his older sisters had married and moved away. His mother was sick with tuberculosis so she was unable to do any of the work. Brigham learned to get the water from the water pump, milk the cow, bake bread and many other jobs.
Later in his life he told the women of the Church that he could bake bread as well as any of them, and he was probably right.
