Section 3: Chronology of the Book of Mormon
3-26 Life Spans of Lehi's Lineage

Explanation:

This chart shows the lineage of Lehi and approximate life spans of him and his descendants, from Nephi to Amaleki, who were responsible for keeping the historical and doctrinal records of their people. Each bar on the chart represents an individual record keeper's life. Although the Book of Mormon does not give the date of Nephi's death, it makes good sense to assume that he was approximately seventy-five years old when he died.
