QUESTION #1 -- EARLY MORMON HISTORY QUIZCorrect.
A significant amount of research indicates that Joseph Smith married the wives of other men. Some of this research is described in a book written by an LDS author, Richard S Van Wagoner, "Mormon Polygamy: A History", Signature Books, 1989, pg. 41-49.
Another good source of information would include, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, vol.27, no.l, Spring 1994 "Nauvoo Roots of Mormon Polygamy, 1841-46: A Preliminary Demographic Report", by George D. Smith. pp.1-72.
