Patriarch Harrison Sperry (died abt. 1928 at age of almost 99) told Bro. Worth Kilgrow (told the story to him three times) that B[righam] Y[oung], H. C. Kimball and Bro. Wilcox (Amanda H. Wilcox's husband) went back to the Mansion House at Nauvoo (Joseph's home) in 1848 and dug up the bodies of Joseph and Hyrum and brought them to Salt Lake in a sealed wagon.

When they arrived late in the fall of 1848 they opened up the wagon. He, Bro. Sperry, saw the bodies, with a few other trusted ones, lying in their caskets, side by side. He said they looked very natural, almost as tho asleep. He was about fifteen yrs. old at the time. He told this story a year or two before he died. . . . Dictated to me by Bro. W. Kilgrow in Jan. l939.

As candidates are eliminated (proven not related) they are marked appropriately (THUS) and an explanation included. They are kept in the list in case future research proves they can be included. (And to keep them from popping up on the list again!) Never discard good research!

Proven candidates' names are marked with an asterisk (*) until they can be added to the database.
