The Morleys moved to Independence with the Saints where, on three separate occasions, they moved all their things out of the house, expecting it to be burned to the ground during the night. Once Father Morley was tried for treason, imprisoned, and sentenced to be shot in the public square. He did not falter, but was one of six Latter-day Saints who offered their lives for their friends. The offer was not accepted.
The Morleys fled to Clay County, but suffered more mob threats. They then moved to Far West where he was ordained a patriarch. While living there, he was taken prisoner and sent to Richmond. After escaping, he then fled to Illinois and built a small community called “Yelrome” (Morley spelled backwards plus an “e” at the end). In 1845, his home, cooper shop, property, and grain were all burned. He moved his family to Nauvoo, and then left for Salt Lake City in 1847. He was called to lead 224 Saints to settle Manti, Utah. He died at the age of 79 in nearby Fairview. (Susan Easton Black, Who's Who in the Doctrine and Covenants, p. 198-200)
