Wikipedia Biographical Summary:

...Alvin Smith (11 February 1798 – 19 November 1823) was the older brother of Joseph Smith Jr., the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement.

"...On 19 November 1823, at age 25, Alvin died of mercury poisoning from calomel, which was administered to cure a case of “bilious colic.”..."
