“Amos Kept the Record in His Stead”

Brant Gardner

Dating Amos’s death at A.D. 194 and his record-keeping for eighty-four years gives a death date for Nephi3, his father, in A.D. 110. Amos’s age at Nephi3’s death is not given, but he was probably quite young, given his own lengthy stewardship.

Chronology: The 194th year corresponds to A.D. 188.
