Abstract:

Correspondence, certificates, statements and reminiscences, muster rolls, ledger listing Kirtland (Ohio) bank stockholders, docket book of civil and criminal cases tried in the Nauvoo Court House (Ill.), newspaper clippings, and other items primarily relating to early Mormons, especially Mormons and anti-Mormons in Hancock County, Illinois, 1844-1846. Includes Arthur B. Deming's collection, ca. 1880s, of anti-Mormon reminiscences; Elihu B. Washburne's statement (1886) on the Icarian Community that preceded the Mormons at Nauvoo and on the Mormons' impact on the political situation in Illinois in 1840s; miscellaneous early Mormon items from Ohio and from Utah; and later correspondence with the Chicago Historical Society and others about historical source materials.

Correspondents include Joseph Smith, Joseph Smith III, Thomas S. Brockman, Thomas Gregg, Andrew Johnston, John Taylor, Brigham Young, and Levi Williams. Additional topics include Illinois militia operations in Hancock County, the trial and murder of Joseph and Hyrum Smith, leadership of the Mormon community, and the Kinderhook plates found in 1843.

This collection includes 7 items written or signed by Joseph Smith: personal letters to his wife Emma (1832 June 6; 1840 Jan. 20); Joseph Smith's certification of ordination of Sylvester Stoddard (1836 Oct. 13); Joseph Smith's patriarchal blessing of Robert D. Foster (1840 July 20); letter concerning the expenses of his arrest and trial (1841 Sept. 30); summons issued by Joseph Smith (1842 Dec. 2); and document granting his power of attorney to Franklin J. Bartlett (1843 March 25).

The Kirtland (Ohio) ledger (1836-1837; 1 volume) lists stockholders of the Mormon bank and includes an index (1 volume).

The docket book from the Nauvoo Court (1841-1845, 268 p.) includes entries by justices of the peace Aaron Johnson and Ebenezer Robinson. Among the litigants listed are Jacob B. Backenstos, Francis M. Higbee, Hyrum Smith, Joseph Smith, and Brigham Young.

Collection includes a typescript copy (15 p.) of a diary of Twiss Bermingham describing the journey that he and his family made from Dublin, Ireland, to join the Mormons in Salt Lake City in 1856. Original of this item is in the New York Public Library.
