He Died Before Carthage

According to eyewitnesses, Joseph Smith died and came back to life. When did this occur?
a.                  During Zion’s Camp
b.                  At Liberty Jail
c.                   At Haun’s Mill
d.                  In Hiram, Ohio
Yesterday’s answer:
b.   That she would be provided with a new pair of shoes
From the journal of Mosiah Hancock:   After we left Far West, we were left alone for awhile. The mob worried to know where my father was. One day a deputation of men came to our place and generously gave Father three days to get away, which pleased us very much, for we certainly had no desire to stay. Father was an expert in everything he tried to do, and he rigged up a foot lathe and soon had two hubs turned out. It didn’t take us long to build a cart, and soon we were traveling off with the cart box filled with corn. The snow was deep enough to take me to the middle of the thigh, and I was barefooted and in my shirttail. Mother had made me a tow shirt in Kirtland, and the shirt still stuck to me, or rather, I still stuck to the shirt. We had old Tom hitched to the cart, and Father drove the horse and carried the rifle on his shoulder. Mother followed the cart carrying my little brother Francis Marion in her arms. I tried to follow in her tracks. We finally stopped to rest and get something to eat, but Mother said she could not stand it much longer. She cried, and Father said, “Cheer up, Clarissa, for I prophesy in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ you shall have a pair of shoes delivered to you before long, in a remarkable manner.” After we had made our fire and eaten of our roasted corn on the cob, Mother reached down on the side to get her old shoes and held up a new pair. Father answered “Clarissa, did I not tell you that God would provide you a pair in a remarkable manner?”
