Amaleki's Brother

Amaleki, the last of the record-keepers before King Benjamin, referred to his own brother, who was a member of an expeditionary force that set out from Zarahemla to return to the land of Nephi, but had not been heard from since that time. This expedition was led by Zeniff, perhaps around 200 BC, from Zarahemla (see Mosiah 9). No further record concerning the brother of Amaleki appears in the Book of Mormon.
