Is it possible to know what Joseph Smith really looked like?

How about what he sounded like?

Being one of the most prominent figures of 19th century American history, even in his day, we are left with both a dearth and an abundance of information about the young prophet: the former a product of over 180 intervening years since his death; the latter a blessing of his contemporaneous notoriety.
