NAUVOO, IL (AP) – An archaeological dig is underway in a tiny western Illinois community for the possible location of a home built for the one-time patriarch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports that the search is on in Nauvoo in Hancock County for the one-time dwelling of Joseph Smith Sr. and wife Lucy Mack. They’re the parents of Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon church.

The newspaper says recent discoveries suggest that the site being sought is just south of the community’s historic Joseph and Emma Smith Mansion House.

Volunteers are discovering what appears to be a structural support for the house that research indicates was a double log cabin.

The elder Smith died in 1840.

    The Bible tells of a story. That Adam and Eve. That God told them not to eat from the tree. Well Lord Satan told Eve to eat from the tree then Adam ate from the tree. That is where Satan helped open our eye’s to what God wanted to hide from us all. God is a sick evil self centered jerk. Yes I believe in God but I do not walk with him. He is also a murder. A MASS murderer. He also want to enslave everyone. He will not enslave me into his sick twisted world. AVA SATANAS.
