Joseph Smith, father, husband, son, and more importantly the founder of The Church of Latter day Saints was born on December 23, 1805 to Joseph and Lucy Mack Smith in Sharon, Vermont. In 1817, at the age of twelve, he and his family, made of eleven brothers and sisters, moved to a place called the “Burned over district” in Western New York, where he would do many things including form a religion known as Mormanism.

Joseph Smith Jr. was a very religious and God fearing man. He founded the Latter Day Saint movement, better known as the Mormon Church. He was persecuted by some and embraced by others, as well.
