  4. Burial customs among forefathers / foremothers: Not long after the collapse of Nephite civilization in the Americas, we are provided a viewing of burial customs in Europe among one people (whose origin dates back to the Hagoth diaspora), a people who specifically spoke of origins across the water from a land's name meaning desolation, and who referred to themselves as "other sheep" Jesus had anciently promised to visit.
