Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   The Female Benevolent Society
The Relief Society was disbanded in 1844 and was not revived again until 1867, although there were some meetings during this time period by various wards as the following fact from the life of Mary S. Campbell alludes to:
Mary joined the Cedar City Female Benevolent Society on February 4, 1857.
This Female Benevolent Society was later renamed the Relief Society.
