Variant Spelling of ONIDAH

Alma 47:5a

  • O, P: Oneidah
  • 1830-1981: Onidah

Alma 47:5b

  • O, P: Oneidah
  • 1830-1981: Onidah
  • Discussion: Both occurrences in Alma 47:5 have the spelling Oneidah in O and P; the 1830 compositor set the name as Onidah, perhaps based on an incorrect spelling for the Iroquois tribe. The hill in Alma 32:4 and the place of arms in Alma 47:5 are distinct.
