Feature Articles: When did Sidney Rigdon first meet Joseph Smith? Part 3

The force of this shock was like an earthquake, when Symonds Ryder, Ezra Booth and many others, submitted to the "New Dispensation."
First of all was the preacher, Sidney Rigdon (who undoubtedly was a fellow-conspirator with Joe Smith, and perhaps the real originator of the fraud), then there was Oliver Snow, a Baptist since 1809, later in the Disciple Church, a farmer of property and intelligence; and Rev. Ezra Booth of the Methodist Church, a bright and well-informed man, whose daughter, Almeda, a score of years later, became a prominent teacher at Hiram and an associate of President Garfield in that noted school; and last, but not least, Symonds Rider, of Hiram, the young preacher who had come out to profess his faith when Elder Thomas Campbell (father of Alexander) preached May 25, 1828, in Jotham Atwater's barn.

Booth had been upset because the church, which was new and had little money, did not pay for his mission and because he did not experience a continual stream of miracles, which he felt was a required aspect of a true church.
He was upset that Joseph Smith played with children (behavior he found not fitting for a prophet of God) and that his own missionary work did not result in a prophecy that he seems to have thought applied to him. Eventually, he began writing letters to newspapers that contained incorrect or slanted information.

9 of the RLDS History of the Church and Ezra Booth's letter of Oct. 31, 1831).
Note 2: For an anecdote on Alexander Campbell's supposed meeting with Sidney Rigdon during this period, see the closing paragraph of Ezra Booth's letter, published Nov. 11, 1831 in the Ohio Star. Booth and Rider, two Methodist Ministers, who, a few months ago, joined the Mormon Standard, and followed the infatuated Jo Smith to Missouri, have recently returned to this section of country -- and that, at the late Campmeeting at Shalersville, in this County, they made a public renunciation of the Mormon faith. Note 2: Historian Amos Hayden dates the alienation of elders Ezra Booth and Simmons Ryder from the Mormons to "about the 1st of September, 1831 (see Hayden's History of the Disciples, page 252). See also the Ohio Star of Oct. 20th for Lewis L. Rice's comments on Ezra Booth's "renunciation" Booth and Rider, two Methodist Ministers, who, a few months ago joined the Mormon Standard, and followed the infatuated Jo Smith to Missouri, have recently returned to this section of country -- and that, at the late Campmeeting at Shalersville, in this County, they made a public renunciation of the Mormon faith. -- Observer & Telegraph. The numbers of Mr. Booth bear the impress of honest sincerity and deep repentance. Note 1: Ezra Booth, (1792- aft. 1860) was an Ohio Methodist minister who witnessed a supposedly miraculous LDS healing and was baptized a Mormon late in 1830 or early in 1831, apparently in Portage Co., Ohio. Within a short time he was ordained an Elder, and on June 3, 1831 he was ordained a High Priest by LDS official Lyman Wight. During the summer of 1831 Booth traveled in company with Elder Isaac Morley (see LDS Doc. & Cov. Sec. 52) on Mormon activities Missouri and attended the consecration of the "Temple Lot" in that state. Following the disheartening outcome of his experiences, Booth withdrew from the LDS Church membership (some sources say he was excommunicated in early Sept. 1831) and, for the next 30 years lived on his farm at Mantua, Portage Co., Ohio. Note 2: Ezra was the first person to leave the LDS Church who wrote extensively of his experience while a member of that organization. His nine letters on this topic have been often reprinted since he wrote the first of them for publication in the Ohio Star of Oct. 13, 1831. Strangely, not many newspaper editors saw fit to copy or notice Ezra Booth's remarkable series of disclosures.
