official name: Southern Mission   (started: 4 Dec 1861, ended: 6 Apr 1877)
It is unclear if there was any practical difference between the mission and the stake while both were operational, except that the mission also had jurisdiction over Jacob Hamblin's Indian Mission to the Paiute, Navajo, and Hopi.

description: The early organization of the St. George area is complicated. The first settlements in Harmony (1852) and Santa Clara (1854) were part of an Indian Mission. New settlements in 1856-1858 were under the jurisdiction of Cedar Stake, until it was disorganized in 1859. When the Southern Mission arrived to settle St. George in late 1861, the area came under the direct leadership of apostles Erastus Snow and Orson Pratt, the latter of whom soon left. Snow organized a high council, priesthood quorums, and wards in 1862, but a full stake organization with a presidency was not created until 1869 under Joseph Watson Young. Even then, Snow was still present as Mission President. When Young died in 1873, the stake fell into limbo, with a series of leaders of various titles: first the stake presidency counselors ran the stake, then Brigham Young's son John W. (a recently appointed assistant counselor in the First Presidency) was appointed as president in 1874, although it is unclear whether he was ever a resident. After he returned to New York, the counselors again led the stake, until Erastus Snow returned as Southern Mission President, with the former stake presidency counselors as his assistants. After the stake was reorganized at the time of the temple dedication, the first act of the church-wide Priesthood Reorganization, it remained intact permanently.
