Several curious tidbits that happened on this day in Mormon History
150 years ago today - Jan 22, 1869
At a banquet "Joseph B. Nobles said that he performed the first Marriage Ceremony according to the Patriarchal order of Marriage ever performed in this dispensation By sealing Eliza Be[a]man to Joseph Smith on the 6 day of May 1841." Joseph Smith had least one plural wife before Eliza Beaman: Fanny Alger in 1833. It is also probable that he married Lucinda Morgan Harris in 1838.
