Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   His son
From the life of John Hansen:   In 1864 I became a convert to “Mormonism and emigrated to Utah the same year, locating in Salt Lake City. In 1867 I went out into the country with my family in search of a home. On our way we had to cross a river by means of a ferry boat. My four year-old son, while playing together with some other children on the boat, fell into the river. A band of Indians witnessed this scene, and some of them made an attempt to save the child, but all in vain: he was drowned. Shortly after this, while traveling on the road, in a wagon, my boy came to me about noon-day, telling me not to mourn for him, as he had a place appointed for him, and was going to be my guardian angel.
