The wife of Thomas B. Marsh and Sister Harris concluded they would exchange milk, in order to make a little larger cheese. It was agreed that the milk and strippings should all go together.

Mrs. Marsh, wishing to make some extra good cheese, saved a pint of strippings from each cow.

A quarrel arose and the matter was referred to the home teachers. They found Mrs. Marsh guilty of failing to keep her agreement. She and her husband were upset and an appeal was taken from the teacher to the bishop, and a regular Church trial was held. They [the bishop's court] decided that the woman had violated her covenant. Marsh immediately took an appeal to the High Council. Not being satisfied [with their decision], he took an appeal to the First Presidency of the Church, and Joseph and his counselors had to sit upon the case, and they approved the decision of the High Council.

Thomas B. Marsh then declared that he would sustain the character of his wife, even if he had to go to hell for it...and what next? He went before a magistrate and swore that the 'Mormons' were hostile to the state of Missouri That affidavit brought from the government of Missouri an exterminating order, which drove some 15,000 Saints from their homes and habitations, and some thousands perished through suffering and the exposure consequent on this state of affairs. (President Gordon B. Hinckley, C.R., April 1984, pp.110,111; citations from Journal of Discourses, 3:283-284)
