NOTES [57 words]: Joseph Smith was of course the founder of the Mormon church. Hyrum Smith was his brother, who didn't really have a big role in the church but suffered and died with his brother. Brigham Young was the leader of (the largest faction of) the church after Smith's death. I assume "Heber" is Heber C. Kimball, another important Mormon leader. - RBW
