BIRTH: 4 Jan 1810, Overton County, Tennessee; SOURCE: Joyce Lindstrom, Va n Hoosen Book.

!MARRIAGE: Riley Stewart was married to Jane Mills on 19 Jan 1833 by Samu el Wood MG. #25-967. SOURCE: Madison Co., Ill., Marriage Records index , 1813-1882, 929.377386 SHE, Shelley & Wasser. Jane Gentry had previousl y been married to Washington Tandy Mills. Researcher: Georgenia Stewart

The following is taken from History of the Church, Vol.3, Ch.6, p. 56: S ome two weeks previous to this, Judge Morin, who lived at Mill Port, info rmed John D. Lee and Levi Stewart, that it was determined by the mob to p revent the "Mormons" from voting at the election on the sixth day of Augu st, 1938. They hoped to thereby elect Colonel William P. Peniston who le d the mob in Clay county. He also advised them to go prepared for an atta ck, to stand their ground, and have their rights.
The brethren, hoping better things, gave little heed to Judge Morin's fr iendly counsel, and repaired to the polls at Gallatin, the shire town o f Davies county, without weapons.
About eleven o'clock a. m., William P. Peniston mounted a barrel, and ha rangued the electors for the purpose of exciting them against the Mormons . He said, "The Mormon leaders are a set of horse thieves, liars and cou nterfeiters. You know they profess to heal the sick, and cast out devils , and you all know that is a lie." He further said, "The members of th e Church were dupes, and not too good to take a false oath on any commo n occasion. They would steal and I do not consider property safe where th ey were." He was opposed to their settling in Davies county. Then he sai d, "If they suffered the Mormons to vote, the people would soon lose thei r suffrage." Then addressing the Saints he said, "I headed a mob to driv e you out of Clay County and would not prevent your being mobbed now."
Richard (called Dick) Welding, the mob bully, just drunk enough for th e occasion began a discussion with Brother Samuel Brown by saying, "The M ormons were not allowed to vote in Clay county no more than the Negroes. " He attempted to strike Brown who gradually retreated, parrying the bl ow with his umbrella. Welding continued to press upon him calling hi m a liar, etc. Meanwhile trying to repeat the blow on Brown, Perry Durph y sought to suppress the difficulty. Durphy seized Welding's arm, then f ive or six of the mobbers seized Durphy. They commenced beating him wit h clubs, boards, and crying, "kill him, kill him." A general scuffle com menced with fists and clubs, the mobbers being about ten to one of the br ethren. Abraham Nelson was knocked down and had his clothes torn off. Whi le trying to get up he was attacked again. His brother, Hyrum Nelson, ra n in amongst them and knocked the mobbers down with the butt of his whip . Riley Stewart struck Welding on the head, which brought him to the grou nd. The mob cried out, "Dick Welding's dead; who killed Dick?" They fel l upon Riley, knocked him down, kicked him, crying, "Kill him, kill him , shoot him". They would have killed him had not John L. Butler sprung i n amongst them and knocked them down. During about five minutes it was on e succession of knockdowns. Finally the mob dispersed to get firearms.
Very few of the brethren voted. Riley, escaping across the river, had hi s wounds dressed, and returned home. He never regained his health afte r this beating.
(Three generations later, Beatrice Bastian, a great granddaughter of Joh n L. Butler would marry into the Stewart family)
The following account of the election is taken from Margery Browne Cottam 's history of Levi Stewart. Levi is Riley's brother.
When the Prophet and the leading authorities of the Church gave themselv es up to the State Militia in an attempt to save the people from massacre , the rest of the male members were held as prisoners at Far West to be t ried for "treason". Levi Stewart was among those who were forced to marc h double file and surrender themselves and their arms. Then each one wa s made to sign a treaty giving to the State all his real estate and prope rty to "pay the expenses of the War against the Saints". Each family wa s to be allowed barely enough to move out of the state. It took weeks t o examine separately such a large body of people and the men were held pr isoners all this time.
One night as they were standing by a log fire trying to keep warm, a ruff ian came up to Riley Stewart and said, "I saw you knock Dick Welding dow n election day at Gallatin." With this he sprang for an ax that had bee n driven tight into a log. Riley ran, but when the man succeeded in gett ing it loose, he threw it with all his might. Fortunately the ax struck R iley only a glancing blow on the head, not killing him but wounding him s everely. The night after he was wounded, Riley broke through the guard a nd escaped to his wife's people in Carroll County, 50 miles to the south . Soon he was warned that an armed mob had formed when they heard of hi s arrival and intended to take him out, tar and feather him and whip him . He attempted to escape but they caught him, and holding two pistols a t his head forced him to take off his coat, kneel down, and receive fift y lashes. These were given with such force that they cut through his lin en shirt and into the flesh. Then he returned to Far West. The men wer e locked in a schoolhouse without rations much of the time. Their grai n fields and gardens were thrown open to soldiers and horses. Their stoc k was shot down for sport before their very eyes.

BIOGRAPHY: As long as Riley stayed in Missouri, the mobs sought his life , so he moved back to Madison Co., Illinois where he remained until he mo ved to Utah after 1850. He's found in the 1840 and 1845 census of Madiso n Co., Illinois and the 1856 Utah State Census living in Provo, Utah. H e moved to Goshen, Utah where he ran a stage station. He died in Goshen , Utah. Source: Joyce Lindstrom
