[Utah] Apostle Lorenzo Snow says that "his sister, the late Eliza R. Snow Smith, was a firm believer in the principle of reincarnation and that she claimed to have received if from the Joseph the Prophet, her husband. He said he saw nothing unreasonable in it, and could believe it, if it came from the Lord or His oracle." (1)

[Apostle Marriner W. Merrill Diary] I was ordained an Apostle under the hands of President Wilford Woodruff and Counselors George Q. Cannon and Joseph F. Smith and eight Apostles, viz., Lorenzo Snow, Franklin D. Richards, Brigham Young, Moses Thatcher, F. M. Lyman, H. J. Grant, J. H. Smith, and John W. Taylor, President Woodruff being mouth. This was done on Monday at the Gardo House after the close of the General Conference at Salt Lake City, Utah. Brothers Anthon H, Lund and Abram H. Cannon were ordained Apostles at the same time. I did not attend the Conference at this time on account of being unwell, but was telegraphed for by President George Q. Cannon and met this genuine surprise after arriving in Salt Lake City on Sunday evening, October 6th. (2)
