The First Mormon Tabernacle Organist

It is not uncommon to hear of child prodigies today, whether that is in the arts or the academic world. The first appointed Mormon Tabernacle Organist in 1867 could be classified as a prodigy, how old was he?

a.      15

b.      5

c.       7

d.      12

Yesterday’s answer:

(D)   Memorial Day

John W. Welch: “Decoration Day. Quite a croud [crowd] of people turned out and fixed up, very nicely, the graves of their dead and in the afternoon services were held at the cemet[e]ry, a game of ball on the square between Hyrum and Paradise boys which resulted in a victory for the home team.” (May 30, 1908)
