Death of Mormon patriarch "Uncle John" Smith... Nativism in Catholic Church...



Item # 674631

July 14, 1854

NEW YORK DAILY TIMES, July 14, 1854

*  Death of Mormon Patriarch "Uncle John" Smith

Near the bottom of the last column on the front page is an article headed: "Death of the Patriarch, John Smith" being a descriptive article on the death of "Uncle John" Smith, the uncle of Mormon founder Joseph Smith. 
He was the leader of the Latter-Day Saints in Utah from 1847 - 1848.  Nice to have this report on the front page.
Eight pages, some tiny blank margin tears, generally nice.
