Different Name-Same Organization

Everyone knows that the Relief Society was disbanded in 1844 and re-organized in 1867. Some wards did have something that looked familiar to the original Relief Society in the years in-between. What was it called?
a.                  The Indian Relief Society
b.                  The Female Society
c.                   The Female Benevolent Society
d.                  The Unofficial Relief Society
Yesterday’s answer:
a.      8 hours sleep, 8 hours work, 8 hours recreation
President Brigham Young believed a 24 hour day should be broken down as follows:
“Eight hours work, eight hours sleep, and eight hours recreation.”
