Ordained but not Sustained

See the source image

Which apostle was ordained during Brigham Young’s Presidency, but was never sustained in General Conference, not even when he was called to be a Counsellor in the First Presidency?
a.                  George A. Smith
b.                  Heber C. Kimball
c.                   Brigham Young Jr.
d.                  Amasa M. Lyman
Yesterday’s answer:
D   For helping her sister elope
From the life of Susa Young Gates:   At thirteen, she entered the University of Deseret, but her father soon banished her to Saint George for helping her sister Dora elope.
A few months later she recorded this self-portrait: “5’ 3”. 115 lbs. Dark blue or grey eyes, light ‘rather curly’ brown hair. I must confess my teeth are the only redeeming feature of my face.”
In 1877 Susa became the first person to be baptized for the dead in the newly completed Saint George Temple.
