In November 1851, Elder Benson organized the North Pigeon Branch, with Benjamin Gardner as captain and with two counselors. Some disaffected members stayed behind and on July 11 organized their own branch. In that meeting, one spoke “harsh things” about Brigham Young, and another said Young was the “Beast Daniel saw,” while a third called Brigham Young a usurper of authority.
