Son of Joseph Smith, Jr. and Emma Hale Smith. Joseph Smith III claimed at the age of 30 to have had revelation that he was to be the leader of the Church after his father's assassination.

He lead a small group of LDS adherents to reject the leader of the church, then Brigham Young. This dissension lasted until the death of Joseph Smith III, at which point most of them returned to the LDS fold.
