Yesterday’s answer:

(D) Murdered by the Missouri mob

The following from the autobiography of Mosiah Hancock relating the murder and carnage at the hands of the mob:

I can hold it no longer-----and I tell the truth when I say.....I saw a thing in the shape of a man grab an infant from its mother's arms and bash it's brains out against a tree! Two men got hold of me and had it their own way for awhile; but before they commenced, they told me I could pray. I rehearsed a part of a piece spoken by a young Indian, ‘the sun sets at night and the stars shun the day; but glory remains when twilight fades away. Begin ye tormentors, your threats are in vain; for the son of Alnasmak will never complain.’ They showed me no mercy! . . I could look upon my body, and I was far above them and was glad; for behold, I saw a personage draped in perfect white who said to me, ‘Mosiah, you have got to go back to the earth, for you have a work to do!’ How I ever came back I can never say!
