C   Apostle
From the life of John Willard Young:   While yet a boy, John was ordained an apostle by his father. This ordination was confirmed by President Young when the young man was nineteen, and although John never became a member of the Quorum of the Twelve, he honored this sacred calling while serving as president of the Salt Lake Stake, as a missionary in England, and as counselor to his prophet-father in the First Presidency. For fourteen years after Brigham Young’s passing, Daniel H. Wells, who had served as second counselor to President Young, and John W. Young were sustained as “counselors to the Twelve.”
