It Get’s Complicated

Ellen Sanders Kimball
Ellen Sanders Kimball is the wife of Heber C. Kimball, however, this is not her real name. Her name was changed when her parents immigrated to America from Norway. Being Norwegian, her real name is quite descriptive.  Today, we know which family we belong to by our last name. In Ellen’s case, what three aspects of her name tied her to her family?
a.                  Her mother’s first and last name and the fact that she is her daughter
b.                  The fact that she is a daughter of her father, and her father’s first and last name
c.                   Her mother’s last name, her father’s 1st name and the name of the farm that she was born on
d.                  Her fathers’ 1st name, the fact that she is a daughter, and the name of the farm that she was born on
(Good luck, you’ll need it!)
Yesterday’s answer:
a.      A process of increasing the thickness or compactness of wool
It’s mentioned that the town of Kirtland had what is called a Fulling Mill. The question is, what is it?
A process that increases the thickness and compactness of woven or knitted wool by subjecting it to moisture, heat, friction, and pressure until shrinkage of 10–25% is achieved.

James B. Allen and Glen M. Leonard, The Story of the Latter-day Saints (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Company, 1992), 103.
