|Orrin Porter Rockwell (1813-1878)|
When he lived in Nauvoo, our Uncle Orrin Porter Rockwell
had been Joseph Smith’s best friend for many years, but he
wasn’t yet our uncle, of course. That didn’t happen
until he married Great Grandpa Franklin
Neff’s little sister Mary Ann,
in Brigham Young’s office in Great Salt Lake City, Brigham
himself officiating, 3 May 1854.
Porter had a homestead in Nauvoo, and perhaps a tenancy as well.
