(D)   George Albert Smith
The following is in reference to George Albert Smith:
   When he was 13 years old, George Albert received a remarkable patriarchal blessing from Zebedee Coltrin. He was told: “Thou shalt become a mighty prophet in the midst of the sons of Zion. Thou shalt become a mighty apostle in the church and kingdom of God upon the earth, for none of thy father’s family shall have more power with God than thou shalt have, for none shall excel thee.”
