ABSTRACT
The article discusses the polygamous practices of Mormon religious leader Joseph Smith and examines Smith's possible parentage of Oliver N. Buell and Mosiah L. Hancock through use of DNA. Details are provided about studies that have attempted to reconstruct a genetic profile for Smith and identify his various children. The increasing use of DNA testing in genealogical and historical studies is described and the benefits of DNA testing are explored. Information is also presented about the lives of Buell and Hancock and about their roles within the Mormon Church.
