[Anointed Quorum]
Prayer circle meeting at Joseph Smith's old house; second anointing for Brigham and Mary Ann Young. ... Elden Jay Watson, [ed., Manuscript History of Brigham Young, 1801-1844, Salt Lake City: Smith Secretarial Service, 1968] claim Young's second anointing was on 14 Jan. 1844, which indicates that this ceremony was performed again on Young's behalf the day before the other apostles began receiving the second anointing.
