Hide Profile

Hosea Stout (1810-1889) was a Mormon pioneer.

Hosea Stout was born September 18, 1810 in Kentucky. He was separated from his family for almost four years because of poverty and spent the time with the Shakers. After reuniting with his family, Hosea readjusted himself to his family life until his mother died when he was fourteen years old. At that time, he went away to work, doing odd jobs for nearby farmers. From here he was called to join a volunteer company to fight in the Black Hawk War during which time he joined the Methodist Church. Then, in 1830, he became acquainted with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but was not baptized until 1838. Hosea then followed the Church to Nauvoo and finally to Utah where he died in 1889.
