Looking over the Lord’s Anointed

See the source image

While heading west on the Mormon Trail, future Apostle Marriner Wood Merrill survived what accident that indicated to him the Lord had something for him to do?
a.                  Drowning
b.                  Buffalo Stampede
c.                   Shooting
d.                  Run over by a wagon
Yesterday’s answer:
D   John E. Page
From the life of John Edward Page:   When Elder Page learned of the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum Smith, he advertised in the newspaper for a preaching position for anyone who would pay him. Disfellowshipped from the Twelve, he later supported the claims of James J. Strang, who sought the leadership of the Church. Still later John Page met a group of Canadian Saints bound for Nauvoo. He told them that the Twelve had sent him to direct them to Wisconsin where Mr. Strang’s followers were gathering. A few of the Saints were deceived by this lie. John E. Page was excommunicated from the Church and died in obscurity near Sycamore, Illinois, twenty-one years later.
