Utah’s Toll Gate

Believe it or not, Utah had a toll gate in the 1890’s. Where was it located?
a.                  At the mouth to Emigration Canyon
b.                  It was the Eagle Gate in downtown Salt Lake City
c.                   It was the gate at Temple Square
d.                  At the mouth to Parley’s Canyon
Yesterday’s answer:
(A)   40-50
When Oliver Cowdery, Peter Whitmer Jr., Parley P. Pratt, and Ziba Peterson headed out on their Lamanite Mission in 1830-1831 they were extremely successful in the Kirtland area. What is less known was their success in Missouri. We do know that they were kicked off the Indian Lands by a jealous Government Indian Agent, but just how many baptism did they have?
They baptized 40 to 50 individuals in Lafayette County in Missouri.
