LDS Church to honor Hyrum Smith's birth
Deseret News 8Feb00 N6

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The LDS Church will hold a special fireside on Sunday, February 13th in the Assembly Halll on Temple Square to honor the 200th anniversary of the birth of Hyrum Smith, the older brother of LDS Church prophet Joseph Smith, patriarch to the Church, and member of the Church's first presidency.

The fireside will feature Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve and Elder Eldred G. Smith, emeritus general authority, formerly patriarch to the Church. Smith is a direct descendant of Hyrum Smith. In addition, the program will include original music written by some of Hyrum Smith's descendants.
