Subject : Nauvoo, Il. 1839-1840
Date/Time : 11/9/2012 9:01:12 AM

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called Mormons or Latter Day Saints )were forced to leave the State of Missouri by order of the governor. The Mormons began streaming into Illinois and the then Iowa Territory in the harsh winter of 1838-39. Most of the Mormons went to the vicinity of Quincy, Illinois . As the town of Quincy began to fill to its limits, other Mormons began looking for other places to settle.

During this same time the Cherokee peoples were forced from their lands and began their great Trail of Tears through Western Illinois and Fort Des Moines was abandoned. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called Mormons) thereafter began huddling in the remains of the abandoned fort in the winter of 1838-39.

Seeing the desperate situation of the Mormons were in, a land speculator named Isaac Galland approached members of the faith about several of his tracts. Receiving the offer with joy, Joseph Smith purchased the southern end of the peninsula and a large portion of Montrose, Iowa in early 1839. Ewing's cabin was once again made use of, this time by Joseph Smith, himself. By the end of that year Smith had been able to purchase much of the area of Commerce and Commerce City, and Mormons came en mass. In 1840, the area generally known as Commerce had a population of nearly 2,900 people.

In 1840 the Mormons renamed the city to a Hebrew name meaning beautiful, Nauvoo.

Subject : The Hoh
Date/Time : 10/25/2012 11:01:08 AM

Hoh is a Native American tribe in western Washington state in the United States. The tribe lives on the Pacific Coast of Washington on the Olympic Peninsula. The Hoh moved onto the Hoh Indian Reservation, 474431N 1242517W at the mouth of the Hoh River, on the Pacific Coast of Jefferson County, after the signing of the Quinault Treaty on July 1, 1855. The reservation has a land area of 1.929 square kilometres (477 acres) and a 2000 census resident population of 102 persons, 81 of whom were Native Americans.

The original Hoh language was actually the Quinault language. Though Hoh are considered to be a band of the Quileute tribe, they are originally related to the Quinault tribe, but after marrying together with the Quileute tribe, the Hoh tribe became a bilingual tribe, speaking both Quileute and Quinault, until, ultimately, just speaking Quileute. The lifestyle of the Hoh, like many Northwest Coast tribes, involved the fishing of salmon.

If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work.
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach.
Not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous.
