"I desire the Spirit of God to know and understand myself,
that I might be able to overcome whatever of tradition or
nature that would not tend to my exaltation in the eternal
worlds. I desire a fruitful, active mind, that I may be able to comprehend the designs of God, when revealed through His servants without doubting."

      BIOGRAPHY: “Silas’ father, Asahel Smith was a somewhat visionary man. He predicted that something would come forth in his family that would transmit his name with honor to posterity. When near his death (in Stockholm, New York in 1830, he was visited at Silas’ home by his son Joseph (the Prophet’s father) and grandson Don Carlos, having with them the Book of Mormon and
      the tidings of the restored gospel. He received with gladness the testimony of his son, and remarked that he had always been expecting the coming forth of the true gospel. Asahel died a few days later, being over 86 years old.”
      “Jesse N’s father, Silas Smith, was baptized in the summer of 1835 by Hyrum Smith. He was ordained first an elder, and afterwards a high priest. Mary Duty Smith (Silas' mother) moved to Kirtland, Ohio with her son Silas and family in 1836, but died soon after, being 93 years of age.”
      “Silas moved with his family from Kirtland in April, 1838, bound for Far West, MO, but was turned back at Huntsville by some who were fleeing from their homes and bearing Gov. Lilburn W. Bogg’s ‘exterminating order.’ He died on Sep. 13, 1839 in Pittsfield, IL, where he had been appointed president of a branch of the church. His widow (Mary Aikens Smith) moved to Nauvoo where she was kindly received by relatives, and where she taught school for subsistence.”
