The original proprietors of the township were Col. They were all Freemasons, and while at the Lodge, one evening, Col. Tilden proposed to call their township 'Hiram,' in commemoration of the King of Tyre, which was unanimously agreed to He came with a yoke of oxen and a span of horses, and was forty days on the road.
When he arrived at Burton, he put his wagon and goods on to a boat, to be rowed down to the Rapids, while he came down the bank with his team.
He taught the first school in the township, commencing on the 13th of December,and closing on the 22d of February, The school house stood half a mile south of the Center, on the west half of lot 33, near the north-east corner.

He set out a row of maple trees, half a mile in length, beside the road next to his farm, which will be a lasting monument of his good taste.

Smith and family took up their abode with Johnson; Rigdon in a log cabin opposite, and others in the vicinity. Here they had a revelation that the Temple was to be located, and the site was pointed out on a hill near the 'Hinckley farm.
Some one bored an auger hole into a log of the house in which Rigdon lived, and filling it with powder, tried to blow it up. One of the Disciples called on John Tilden to help tar and feather the Mormons, who cooly told him there were some Campbellites that deserved it as well as the Mormons, and if he would help him tar and feather them, he would help tar and feather the Mormons.
They excused him, but the others went, took Smith and Rigdon out of bed, and covered them with a coat of tar and feathers. The most unfortunate part of it was, that two of Smith's children were in bed with him, sick with the measles. In the affray they took cold and died.
The Mormons at once abandoned the idea of making Hiram 'a stake' -- left the town, and returned to back to Kirtland.
Their success since that time, until they can defy the whole force of the United States, and have become a nation themselves, is an additional evidence to prove that persecution is not the weapon with which to combat error Lucius Verus Bierce was the writer of the above excerpt.
The entire article is available here. This item is cited by Richard S. Van Wagoner, on page of his Sidney Rigdon biography. The article is also tabulated among other similar documents preserved in the Archives of Hiram College.
The source of Bierce's information on the plot to blow up Elder Rigdon's home, plans of a Mormon temple at Hiram, and the refusal of John Tilden to participate in the tar and feathering of Smith and Rigdon very likely came from the Tilden family of Hiram, Ohio.
Bierce, who was a prominent Ohio Freemason may have derived his Mormon-specific information from fellow lodge members, who at that period were generally separated from Campbellites such as the Symonds Ryder family of Hiram -- see notes attached to "A Hill of Zion" in the Sept.
It is possible that local residents first attempted to apply pressure on Rigdon, to force him out of Hiram.Examples, tips, and ideas for the fourth Toastmaster speech: How to Say It. Includes sample speeches for project #4 from Toastmasters worldwide.
