Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Three Heavenly messengers informed them
From the life of William Dydamous Johnson:   While the Saints were on their journey westward, the council deemed it prudent to make a settlement and station at Garden Gove, Iowa, where Elder Bent was appointed to preside with Daniel Fuller and Johnson wrote to the council of the Twelve; the following is extracted from their letter:--“Garden Grove is left without a president, and a large circle of relatives and friends are bereft of an  affectionate companion and friend, and the Church has sustained the loss of an undeviating friend to truth and righteousness. The glory of his death is, that he died in the full triumphs of faith and knowledge of the truth of our holy religion, exhorting his friends previous received intimations of his approaching end by three holy messengers from on high.”

Andrew Jenson, LDS Biographical Encyclopedia (Salt Lake City: Publishers Press, 1901) 1:368.
