History - The Huntington family was contacted by Hyrum Smith and David Whitmer, missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. With the exception of the oldest son, the entire family joined the newly formed church.

After receiving advice from Joseph Smith, Sr., William sold their property and relocated to the Church's headquarters in the community of Kirtland, Ohio. They moved again to Far West, Missouri.

They arrived in Far West at a time of violence between Missouri residents and the newly arrived Mormons. After Missouri Governor Lilburn Boggs issued the Extermination Order, William helped coordinate the evacuation of church members to Illinois.

During an 1839 cholera epidemic in Nauvoo, Illinois, Mother Zina and daughter Zina became ill. Mother Zina died but daughter Zina recovered after receiving care in the home of Joseph and Emma Smith.
