Joseph Smith Sr. & Hyrum Smith Patriarchal Blessings

After a brief time occupying the office, Joseph Smith ordained his father Joseph Smith Sr. as the church patriarch. Upon Joseph Smith Sr.'s death, his son Hyrum Smith became the church patriarch.

Historian Michael Marquardt has made the blessings of these two patriarchs available online for the first time. They provide a unique view of early Mormon thought and possibility.
