    Good question !!! It really made me search some things out that I probably would not have looked into otherwise.

    Joseph F. Smith especially means a lot to me because I am related to his sister, who was his only other sibling.

    Double frubals (IOU for second frubals) trivia questions:

    Frubals if you can tell me the name of Joseph F. Smith's sister.

    Frubals if you can tell me how old Joseph F. Smith's sister was, when their father, Hyrum Smith, was martyred, along with Joseph Smith

    Frubals to anyone who can tell me how old Joseph F. Smith was, when his father Hyrum Smith died.

    Not quite. You're close though.

    Hint- Think of other commands you give to a horse.

    Here's a few more to chew on...

    What politician chose the name Utah, thereby fulfilling prophecy?

    Why did John Taylor treasure a red handkerchief until the day he died?

    Willard Richards confessed to Joseph Smith that he was afraid of dying a violent death. Joseph made a prophecy on Willard's behalf, that in his darkest hour, bullets would fly in all directions around him and he would not be harmed. What was especially unusual about this prophecy?

    What did the Mormon pioneer children scatter along the way to Salt Lake City?

    Willard Richards was a very large man, easily the largest target in the room, but he escaped with a knick in his ear, I believe. I think the prophesy was that he wouldn't get any holes in his clothes, and it happened.

    Coincidentally, Joseph Smith had said that as long as they didn't hang him, he didn't care how he died. Willard Richards told him that if he (Joseph) was to be hung, Willard would take his place.

    Soyleche appears to have got the idea behind my question, but the crucial part I was looking for was this: in prophesying Willard's darkest hour, Joseph was prophesying of the day he himself would die, but that only became clear after the fact.

    Henry Clay offered the "Compromise of 1850" which organized the Utah territory, but I can't find if he chose the name or not. If it isn't him, I'll keep looking.

    When I read the book My Antonia, it said that the Mormons had scattered sunflower seeds along the way when they moved west. I have no idea if this is true or if it is what you had in mind but I thought it was cool anyway.

    That's it! There are parts of their trail that still have those sunflowers growing along the sides. They scattered the seeds for the sake of those who came along behind them.

    Thought I'd resurrect this one for a minute - although this one is pretty easy.

    What passage of scripture can be found in all 4 of the Standard Works (with slight variation)?
