When Joseph Smith and volunteers rode to Adam-ondi-Ahman to assess the situation, they discovered there were no truths to the rumors.When the Mormons heard a rumor that Judge Adam Black was gathering a mob near Millport, one hundred armed men, including Joseph Smith, surrounded Black's home.They had also founded the Caldwell County town of Far West as their Missouri headquarters.Once they were established in a county of their own, a period of relative peace ensued.They asked if the rumor was true, and demanded that he sign a document disavowing any connection to the vigilance committees.Black refused, but after meeting with Smith, he wrote and signed a document stating that he "is not attached to any mob, nor will attach himself to any such people, and so long as they [the Mormons] will not molest me, I will not molest them." At a meeting at Lyman Wight's home between leading Mormons and non-Mormons, both sides agreed not to protect anyone who had broken the law, and to surrender all offenders to the authorities.
In his famous Salt Sermon, Sidney Rigdon announced that the dissenters were as salt that had lost its savor and that it was the duty of the faithful to cast the dissenters out to be trodden beneath the feet of men.
Smith's followers, commonly known as Mormons, began to settle in Jackson County in 1831 to "build up" the city of Zion.
Tensions built up between the rapidly growing Mormon community and the earlier settlers for a number of reasons: culminating in the expulsion of the Mormons from the entire state.
Most of these refugees settled in or near what would become the city of Nauvoo, Illinois.
Shortly after what Mormons consider to be the restoration of the gospel, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1830, Joseph Smith revealed that the Second Coming of Christ was near, that the City of Zion would be near the town of Independence in Jackson County, Missouri, and that his followers were destined to inherit the land held by the current settlers.
