United States Prominent Women and Baptism for the Dead

Martha Washington

We know that Wilford Woodruff was baptized, not only for the signers of the Declaration of Independence, but also for the presidents of the United States (with the exception of two), but what about prominent females, who acted as proxy for these women?
a.                  Lucy Mack Smith
b.                  Emma Smith
c.                   Lucy Bigelow Young
d.                  Eliza Snow
Yesterday’s answer:
b.   Damaged his wagon
Some people, not particularly caring for the church in Indiana, decided to steal Almon Babbit’s wagon, move it a mile and damage it, then removing one of the wheels in hopes Almon would move along on his mission to some other area. Not so, Almon just had to wait longer in this area to have his wagon repaired. This resulted in five more baptisms. So much for what some deemed as a great idea at the time.
