John Taylor Portrait
“John Taylor Portrait” – John Taylor was the third president of the Church, was born in England and is the only president of the Church born outside the United States. He emigrated to Toronto Canada with his immediate family. The apostle Parley P Pratt was serving a mission in Toronto and taught Taylor and his wife about the restoration. John Taylor joined the Church and moved his family to Far West Missouri where he was ordained an apostle in 1838.
John Taylor, along with Willard Richards stayed with the arrested Joseph and Hyrum Smith in Carthage. He was wounded severely as the mob attacked and killed Joseph and Hyrum but with the aid of Willard Richards survived to see the Saints move west to their mountain haven and become the third president of the Church.

OUR COMMITMENT TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE REVEALED NAME OF THE CHURCH:
President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.
"The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will."
The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as we still find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
