The temple work for the fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence and other founding fathers has been done. All these appeared to Wilford Woodruff when he was president of the St. George Temple. President George Washington was ordained a high priest at that time. You will also be interested to know that, according to Wilford Woodruff’s journal, John Wesley, Benjamin Franklin, and Christopher Columbus were also ordained as priests at that time.

Let me get this straight: While the Bible specifically states that there is nothing we can do for those who are dead (Hebrews 9:27), the Mormons think they baptized and conferred priesthood on these dead men?!?
What is even more interesting is that they consort with the dead who “appear” to them, again in contradiction to the Bible’s commands against communication with the dead (Lev. 19:31, 20:6; Deut. 18:9-14; Isa.8:19).
This is more evidence of the false nature of the LDS faith.
