Warren Waste and the tarring and feathering of Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism

This historical event is located here

Warren continued to live in Ohio. He was allegedly a participant in the tarring and feathering of Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism, see box above. Given the unpopularity of the Mormons in that particular time and place he evidently wasn't prosecuted.

He settled in Willoughby, Ohio. In 1850 Warren and his brother Luke were located in Willoughby, Lake County, Ohio. In 1860 the census listed Warren Waist and his wife Fanny Waist as residents of Kirtland, Lake County, Ohio. Fanny was 3 years older than Warren. She was born in Massachusetts in about 1794. No children were listed. Warren was listed as a farmer.
