       ·  Of the 111 apostles that have served in this dispensation, 98 have been born in the United States, and 13 have been born outside of the United States.
·  Interestingly, Vermont was the state of birth of ten of our Latter-day apostles, including the Prophet Joseph. Only the state of Utah has had more future apostles born in it than the state of Vermont.
·  As can be seen above, all but 7 of our apostles have been born in either the United States or England. The seven apostles born in other countries are John A. Widtsoe (Norway), Charles A. Callis (Ireland), Marion G. Romney (Mexico), Marriner W. Merrill (Canada), Anthon H. Lund (Denmark), Dieter F. Uchtdorf (Czechoslovakia), and Ulisses Soares (Brazil).
The last apostle accounted for on this page was Elder Patrick Kearon in late 2023.
