Can't locate such a refernce.  Will continue searching.

2. William Dimick (Demick? Dimik?) was told by Joseph that he would 
never taste of death.

This reference appears to be to William Huntington, and his father, 
Dimick Huntington.  The Huntingtons were associates with Joseph Smith in 
Nauvoo.  After he was instrumental in delivering Joseph from the mobs in 
Nauvoo, Joseph promised William that he would never taste of death.  
Madsen refers to this in a footnote--

William Huntington went west with the exodus and settled eventually in 
Springville, Utah. One night, forty-three years after the Nauvoo 
incident, just after going to bed he was conversing with his wife in the 
darkness. He said something and she replied. She said something and he 
did not reply. After two or three repetitions she lighted a lamp. 
Without a sigh or a shudder he had died. The family believed this was 
the fulfillment of Joseph's promise, which is universalized in the 
Doctrine and Covenants: "And it shall come to pass that those that die 
in me shall not taste of death, for it shall be sweet unto them; and 
they that die not in me, wo unto them, for their death is bitter" (D&C 
42:46-47). See diary of Oliver B. Huntington, vol. 2, p. 271, entry of 
March 19, 1887.
