185 years ago today - Nov 7, 1837

Far West "general assembly" elects Joseph president of the whole church and Sidney as a counselor. Counselor Frederick G. Williams is rejected and Hyrum is voted in. Opposition to David Whitmer, W. W. Phelps, and John Whitmer, but ultimately they are elected. A high council is elected, as are members of the Quorum of the Twelve (including the Johnsons and John F. Boynton who had been rejected in Kirtland), bishopric, patriarch, keeper of the Lord's storehouse, presidents of seventies.
