After becoming taught about Mormonism by apostle Charles C. Rich in 1832, Hosea Stout was baptized into the Latter Day Saints in 1837 in Kirtland, Ohio. He migrated west to Nauvoo, Illinois, and to Utah with other Mormons. He became a lawyer, a Utah territorial representative, a delegate to the constitutional convention for the State of Deseret, the attorney general of Utah Territory, speaker of House for Utah, and a U.S. attorney. He is well known as a diarist, and his writings have been published. He is also known for drawing up a legal code for Utah, which was never accepted.
