Orrin Porter Rockwell
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 Neff , in Brigham Young ’s office in Great Salt Lake City, our Uncle Brigham himself officiating, 3 May 1854.

Porter had a homestead in Nauvoo, and perhaps a tenancy as well.
