Few Belong Today

While in Nauvoo, many Mormon men belonged to this organization, however, today, few belong. What is the organization?
a.                  Seventies
b.                  Knights of Columbus
c.                   Masons
d.                  Kiwanis Club
Yesterday’s answer:
a.      Martin Harris
Brigham Young invited Martin and Caroline Harris to join the Saints in the West. In 1856, Caroline and the children journeyed to Utah. The aging Harris remained in Kirtland with other relatives until 1870, supporting himself by his 90 acres. Harris prospered and acted as a self-appointed guide/caretaker of the deserted Kirtland Temple, listing himself in the 1860 census as “Mormon preacher.”
