Honey Creek, Pottawattamie, Iowa Caleb Clark Baldwin Birth: 3 June 1817, Warrensville, Cuyahoga, Ohio Warrensville, Ohio is about 20 Miles SW of Kirkland, Ohio Kirkland, Ohio From 1831 to 1838 Kirtland was the headquarters for the LDS Church. Joseph Smith moved the church to Kirtland in 1831, shortly after its formal organization in April 1830 in Palmyra, New York. Latter Day Saints built their first temple there. Many attending the Kirtland Temple dedication in 1836 claimed to see multiple heavenly visions and appearances of heavenly beings, including deity. For this and other reasons, Kirtland remains a place of importance to those of all Latter Day Saint denominations. Many sections from the Doctrine and Covenants, considered modern revelations and canonical by most denominations within the Latter Day Saint movement, originated in Kirtland during the 1830s. Latter Day Saints departed Kirtland in 1837-38
    • Far West, Missouri Early Latter-day Saints began to settle in northwestern Missouri soon after the Church was organized in 1830. However, disputes between Mormon and Missourian settlers in Independence led to the expulsion of the Mormons from Jackson County in 1833. Most Mormons temporarily settled in Clay County, Missouri. Towards the end of 1836, Caldwell County was created specifically for Mormon settlement to recompense Mormon losses in Jackson County. Shortly after the creation of Caldwell County, Far West was made the county seat. Far West became the headquarters of the Latter-day Saint movement in early 1838 when Prophet Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon relocated to the town from the previous church headquarters, Kirtland, Ohio. While headquartered in Far West, the official name of the church was changed from Church of Jesus Christ to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Mormon-Missourian conflict of 1838 New problems erupted between the Mormons and their neighbors when the Mormons began to settle in the counties surrounding Caldwell, including De Witt in Carroll County and Adam-ondi-Ahman in Daviess County. A series of escalating conflicts followed and the Governor of Missouri eventually called out 2,500 state militiamen to put down what he alleged to be a "Mormon rebellion." Latter Day Saints poured into Far West for protection and found themselves under siege. Joseph Smith Jr., Sidney Rigdon and others surrendered at the end of October, 1838, and were put on trial by the state for treason. The main body of the Mormons were then forced to sign over their property in Far West and Caldwell County to pay for the militia muster and then leave the state. The main body later settled in Nauvoo, Illinois.
    • In 1844 Joseph Smith, and his brother Hyrum Smith were murdered by a mob while in custody in the city of Carthage, Illinois. In 1846, religious tensions reached their peak, and in 1848 mobs burned the Latter-day Saint temple in Nauvoo. Carthage Jail, Hancock Co., Ill., June 27, 1844 C. C. A. Christensen (1831–1912) Oil on canvas, between 1882–1884 The body of Joseph Smith, dressed in white, lies in the center of the picture. From a second floor window Willard Richards looks down at the martyred prophet. After the murder, the mob fled, fearing the arrival of a Mormon posse that never came.
    • During 1846, Brigham Young abandoned Nauvoo and began leading 1,600 Mormons west across the frozen Mississippi in subzero temperatures to a temporary refuge at Sugar Grove, Iowa. Young planned to make the westward trek in stages, and he determined the first major stopping point would be along the Missouri River opposite Council Bluffs. He sent out a reconnaissance team to plan the route across Iowa, dig wells at camping spots, and in some cases, plant corn to provide food for the hungry emigrants. The mass of Mormons made the journey to the Missouri River, and by the fall of 1846, the Winter Quarters were home to 12,000 Mormons After leaving Nauvoo, Caleb Clark Baldwin & Ann Eliza Robinson Baldwin and Six children remain at, or near, Kanesville “Council Bluffs” (Winter Quarters), until 1852.
