Zina Baker Huntington converted to Mormonism in New York. Her daughter, Zina Diantha, became known in Ohio for her spiritual gifts and later as a plural wife of Brigham Young. Her daughter, Zina Presendia Card, helped found Cardston, Alberta. And her daughter, "little Zina", grew up to marry future church apostle Hugh B. Brown. All four Zinas were influential advocates of women's suffrage, education, and the dignity of women.
