What are the names of the original LDS church members in 1830?

At the first meeting of the Church, on April 6, 1830, there were 6 men who were previously baptized who 'officially incorporated the Church' (required by the laws of the area) and a few friends and family members, perhaps about 30 people total. By the end of the year, there were several hundred members in a handful of states.

The original 6 men who 'incoporated' the Church were:

Joseph Smith, Jr.

Hyrum Smith

Samuel H. Smith

Oliver Cowdery

David Whitmer

Peter Whitmer

There are no minutes of the meeting, but we know that Joseph's parents and other siblings were present, as well as his wife and the families of the other men previously listed. Many of these were baptized following the meeting.
