Adam gathered his righteous posterity to Adam-ondi-Ahman to bestow "upon them his last blessing" (see D&C 107:53-57). Daniel prophesied that Adam will return here before the Second Coming (see Dan. 7:9-14). The Prophet Joseph Smith received a revelation saying that Spring Hill, Daviess County, Missouri, was named by the Lord as Adam-ondi-Ahman (see D&C 116).
