Joseph Smith, Jr. (JSJr) was the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement; while Joseph Smith, Sr. (JSSr) did have a place in the church hierarchy as Presiding Patriarch from 1833 until his death in 1840, JSJr position as President of the Church was always the highest leadership position from 1830 until his death in 1844; on his death bed JSSr anointed Hyrum Smith as his replacement as Presiding Patriarch, not JSJr, and at that same time gave Joseph Smith, III (JS3) a patriarchal blessing that JS3 would someday lead the church. Wight's contention as documented by historians is that JSJr's children (in specific JS3) were the rightful heirs of JSJr. This article is getting the generations completely mixed-up. -- 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:12, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
The entire paragraph has been removed. The only thing left is Wight's actual actions of moving to Texas. Maile66 (talk) 16:25, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
