The History of the Saints in the State of Michigan USA

Michigan Mormons

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Michigan began with the Mack family. Almira Mack Scobey had gone to Kirtland, Ohio to visit her cousin Joseph Smith and there they joined the church. On June 7th, 1831 Doctrine and Covenants, Section 52 was received which among other things commanded another one of Mack Scobey's cousins Hyrum Smith and also John Murdock to go to Detroit and preach the gospel on the way to Jackson County, Missouri. These two brethren went to Michigan in company with Mack Scobey and Hyrum's (and Joseph's) mother, Lucy Mack Smith. They were also accompanied by Lyman Wight and John Corrill. The missionaries eventually went to Pontiac, Michigan where they had much success, baptizing several people, including David Dort, the husband of one of the Mack sisters. Read More (PDF).

I wrote the The History Of The Saints In Trinidad & Tobago (Copyright 1995) when I was active in the LDS Church. This site used to have its own URL, but since I have chosen to sell the domain and make most content administrated from a database I have decided to move the content into the LDS Board for whomever is still interested in the content.

Synopsis: Missionaries came to Trinidad in 1975 as visitors from the Venezuela Caracas Mission and then returned. Later, Elizabeth Dopson, a Trinidadian member returning form the UK, requested full-time missionaries come to Trinidad from then President of the Church Pres. Spencer W. Kimball. Through this missionaries came in 1977 and baptized the first member families: Payne & Borde. A lot of government restriction delayed the early organization of the Church.
