The International Brough Reunion is scheduled for Aug. 7-9 and includes tours of historic family sites in Utah, a dedication of a forgotten pioneer grave in the Salt Lake City Cemetery, and a reunion in Kaysville, which will include the formal recognition of a Naval Aviator who died in World War II and after whom the USS Brough warship was named.
Most of the Broughs in Utah are descendants of Brough pioneers who came from Great Britain and settled in Porterville, Randolph, Nephi, Spring City and Salt Lake City. Two of these pioneers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Thomas and Samuel Brough, were brothers who specialized in brickmaking, and their bricks were used to build homes and churches in northern Utah.
See broughfamily.org/reunion_2015.html for information about the Brough reunion and related family events, which are free. The event includes family members and relatives from Australia, Canada, the British Isles and the United States.
