Priesthood means authority; and authority is the word we should use. I do not think the word priesthood is mentioned in the New Covenant of the Book of Mormon. Authority is the word we used for the first two years in the church--until Sydney Rigdon's days in Ohio. This matter of the two orders of priesthood in the Church of Christ, and lineal priesthood of the old law being in the church, all originated in the mind of Sydney Rigdon. He explained these things to Brother Joseph in his way, out of the old Scriptures, and got Joseph to inquire, etc.

At no time has the Lord or this angel told Joseph Smith he was to start a church or that he was to continue asking for more revelations from God. In fact Joseph Smith did not ask for any other revelations after his first vision until three years later when he felt he had to pray to God once more for the forgiveness of his sins. God is not coming to him, but rather he is going to the Lord, at his own leisure it would seem when sufficiently feeling the need to be forgiven for his sins and transgressions. But wait! Oliver Cowdery comes to the rescue here and tells us that Christ tells Joseph Smith not to join any of the churches as they are all wrong and are an “abomination” and that he (Joseph Smith) will be used to show him the way.
In 1776, the Dominguez-Escalante expedition explores the region. In 1778, Don Bernardo Miera Y Pacheco member of the Dominguez-Escalante expedition draws the first map of Utah.

In 1848, James Marshall discovered gold while constructing a mill for John Sutter (Encyclopedia.com, 2015). At the time, John Sutter had 3 mills and more than two hundred and sixty people working for him (Kosher, 2015). As news traveled about the discovery of gold, Sutter’s workers quit working for him and began gold panning.
