The William Kelley Interview

In 1881, RLDS Apostle, William Kelley, went back to the Palmyra area to conduct interviews. He interviewed people that remembered the Smith family. What was the purpose of the interview? (I apologize for the length of the interviews. Believe it or not, I reduced it by many pages, just giving you the most important and interesting aspect of these interviews)
a.                  To confirm the fact that the Smith family was honorable
b.                  To confirm the fact that the Smith family were kicked out of town
c.                   To confirm the fact that Joseph Smith fabricated the First Vision story
d.                  To confirm the fact that the Smith family always stated they would form a new church
Yesterday’s answer:
C.   Brother and Sister David O. McKay
David O. McKay and Emma Ray Riggs were the first couple to be sealed in the Salt Lake Temple in the twentieth century.
