Who was older Joseph and Hyrum Smith?
Joseph was the founder and first president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It’s easy, for example, given the loyally supportive role that Hyrum Smith played, to forget that Hyrum was Joseph’s older brother. At Alvin Smith’s death in 1823, Hyrum became, at 23, the oldest of the Smith brothers.

Joseph F. Smith
Sections 137 and 138 were added to the LDS Church’s 1981 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants, which is the edition currently in use by the church. These were accounts of two visions, one from Joseph Smith in 1837 and the other from his nephew, Joseph F. Smith, in 1918.
How long was Joseph Fielding Smith the Prophet?
