About Alpheus Cutler

Wikipedia Biographical Summary:

"...Alpheus Cutler (February 29, 1784 – August 10, 1864) was an early leader in the Latter Day Saint movement and organizer of the Church of Jesus Christ (Cutlerite).

Cutler was born in Upper Lisle, New York. He married Lois Lathrop of Lebanon, New Hampshire in 1808. Lathrop was a direct descendent of Rev. John Lathrop (1584–1653), and thus a distant cousin of Latter Day Saint prophet Joseph Smith, Jr..."

"...Their daughter Louisa Elizabeth Cutler (1816–1854) married Tunis Rappleye (1807–1883), who led the second group of Mormon pioneers (after Brigham Young's group) into the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. Their marriage produced 10 children and hundreds of descendants.

Alpheus' and Lois' daughters, Clarissa (1824) and Emily (1828), married LDS Church Apostle Heber Chase Kimball (1801) as polygamous wives. Both later divorced him..."

Religeious Leader. He was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on January 20, 1833 by David W. Patten in Western New York. Shortly after joining the Church, he and his moved to Kirtland, Ohio to assist in the building of the Temple. One of Joseph Smith's earliest converts, he was instrumental in the forming of the Mormon religion. Ordained Elder in 1833, he was an architect and designed one of the early churches. He was in the Circle of Twelve and the Council of Fifty. When Joseph Smith was asassinated, Alpheus Cutler was one of the pall bearers. He broke away from the church when Brigham Young took over because he felt that Joseph Smith had promised the leadership of the people should go to him if anything happened to him, and felt he couldn't follow Brigham Young. He then started his own church, called the Cutlerite Church, following the same doctrines as the Mormon religion. The Cutlerite Church is still in existence today in Minnesota.
