[Heber J. Grant]
In one of my conversations with him [i.e., Presiding Patriarch Joseph F. Smith] he told me that President Smith's widow, Mary T. Smith, mother of Dr. Silas Smith, told him that he had a conversation with her and that President Joseph F. Smith had told her that the Patriarch belonged in his line. I was very happy to have that information. It is a great satisfaction to me to know President Joseph F. Smith felt that the patriarchal line should go to his family instead of John Smith's line.
