John Taylor
John Taylor, third president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was a son of James and Agnes Taylor, and was born Nov. 1, 1808, at Milnthorpe, Westmoreland county, England. They were members of the Church of England, and he was brought up in the doctrines of that church until he was about fifteen years old. He then joined the Methodists, and was soon after appointed a local preacher, and continued as such until he left England about the year 1828 or 1829. His father's family had left about two years previously and gone to the neighborhood of the city of Toronto, upper Canada. After a short residence in New York, Brooklyn and Albany, he visited his parents in Canada, and took up his residence at Toronto. He married Miss Leonora Cannon.
Here he united with a few sincere and well educated gentlemen in the search of the Scriptures, some of whom belonged to the Methodist society, In the course of their researches they became convinced of many important truths, such as the gathering of Israel, the restoration of the ten tribes, and the personal reign of Jesus on earth. They also believed in the necessity of revelation: of men being called of God to preach as they were formerly; of the gifts of prophecy, tongues healings and other gifts of the Holy Ghost. They came to the conclusion that the churches of the day had departed from the order of God, and were consequently corrupt and fallen, and that if the Bible was true, the religions of the day were false. With these convictions they fasted and prayed much, that if God had a church on the earth, He would send a messenger unto them. Having heard many of the stories current about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith, he received Elder Pratt cautiously. After a rigid scrutiny, however, he and several of his friends believed the doctrines laid before them, and were baptized in 1836.
He paid several visits to the Temple at Kirtland, Ohio, and was Joseph Smith's guest while there. During the great apostasy of 1837, when many leading men turned away and became so embittered against the Prophet that the lives of men who defended him were endangered, Elder John Taylor stood up boldly in the Kirtland Temple in the midst of foes, and with that eloquent power which came from God, and which ever characterized Elder Taylor's speech, declared that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of the living God and had not fallen, as alleged by apostates.
