190 years ago today - 1831 June [6]

D&C 54: Colesville church to move from Leman Copley's land in Kirtland to Missouri under Newel Knight. According to Joseph Knight Sr, Copley was cut off for refusing to consecrate his property. The Colesville branch left Copley's property some time in June and moved about 90 miles southeast to Wellsville on the Ohio River.
