(C)   That after she dies, that her bones are buried in Nauvoo with her husband
From the life of Lucy Mack Smith:   At the general conference of the Church held in Nauvoo, in October, 1845, Mother Smith addressed the Saints. She reviewed the scenes through which her son and the Church had passed and exhorted parents to exercise a proper care over the welfare of their children. She expressed her intention to accompany the Saints into the wilderness, and requested that her bones, after her death, should be brought back and be deposited in Nauvoo with her husband’s, which Pres. Brigham Young, and the whole conference, by vote, promised should be done. Mother Smith never came to Utah.
