Warren F. Parrish (also Warren Parish) (January 10, 1803–January 3, 1877) was a leader in the early Latter Day Saint or Mormonism movement. Parrish held a number of positions of responsibility, including that of scribe to church president Joseph Smith Jr. Parrish and other leaders became disillusioned with Smith after the failure of the Kirtland Safety Society and left the Church of the Latter Day Saints. Parrish remained in Kirtland, Ohio with other disaffected former church leaders and formed a short-lived church which they called the Church of Christ, after the original name of the church organized by Joseph Smith. This church disintegrated as the result of disagreement between church leaders, and Parrish later left Kirtland and became a Baptist minister.
... After the dissolution of his church, Parrish left Kirtland altogether ... In 1844, Parrish was working as a Baptist minister for a salary of $500 per year ... In 1850 Parrish was living in Mendon, New York where he was listed as a "clergyman" by the census ...
