Mary Jane Robey Epperson, Young Woman's Journal 17 (1906), p.540 ‑ p.541


I was personally acquainted with the Prophet Joseph Smith, and though only a child, I remember him well.  My father worked in the Nauvoo Temple about five years, and hung the last door that swung in the temple.  My brother Theophilus and I would carry our father's dinner, and as he did the turning, we often remained to tread the lathe.


I remember well the Prophet coming to my father's house and administering to the sick.  Have been at his home many times and played.


Remember well when he was martyred, went and saw him after he was dead, and still retain the picture very vividly in my mind.  Have ever remained a faithful member of the Church, and trust I may continue true and steadfast unto the end.
