Obituary of Hosea Stout in the Deseret News, Salt Lake City, Utah 9 Mar 1889 Current Events page 21

Hosea Stout demise At 2:45 am March 2nd [1889]in Big Cottonwood Ward.

Hosea stout Esq. who has a figured prominently in the history of the Latter Day Saints for the past half century passed from life. The immediate cause of his death being paralysis with which he had been affected for the past four weeks. He was a native of Kentucky having been born in Mercer County September 18, 1810, but migrated when very young to [Clinton County, Ohio] and thence to Missouri where he embraced the gospel and from that time shared in the vicissitudes through which the church passed. He served in the Black Hawk war and taught school in Illinois for a number of years. He was intimately associated with the Prophet Joseph Smith for a number of years prior to his death and for some time acted as his body guard as well as being an officer in the Nauvoo Legion and Chief of Police. He came to Utah in 1848 and located in Salt Lake City. He was a member of the Utah Legislature for a number of sessions, also of the City Council and practice at the bar when in the territory from the time the first court was established here until a few years since when his health became so impaired that he retired to his farm. He performed a mission to Hong Kong, China in 1853, [during which time his wife, Louisa Taylor Stout died after childbirth]. [He]was also one of the early settlers of St. George in Southern Utah where he remained about five years. He was a man of sterling integrity and excellent ability; and leaves a wife [Alvira Wilson] and a large family–a wife, nine sons and two daughters besides a large number of grandchildren to revere his memory and emulate his virtues.

Hosea Stout kept an extensive journal, which Juanita Brooks transcribed and printed in two volumes as: On the Mormon Frontier
