So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

    Asael Smith family bible transcription page by George A. Smith
    More legible page than Asael's handwriting. Asael does NOT state grandfather Robert came from Kirton England. Aunt Alice added that note after 1940's research gave a tentative ID to the John Whittingham Robert migrated with as Jn Whittingham of Boston Lincolnshire, neighbor to Robert Smith in Kirton ENG. Be CAREFUL DNA doesn't match Smiths in Kirton.
