HYRUM SMITH was the second son of Patriarch Joseph Smith, and elder brother of the Prophet. He was born February 9, 1800, at Tunbridge, Vermont.

The events of his early life were so closely associated with those of his father and brother that they require no repetition here.

He was baptized in Seneca Lake, New York, in June, 1829, and was one of the "eight witnesses" to the Book of Mormon.

He was married November 2,1826, to Miss Jerusha Barden, by whom he had six children,-two sons and four daughters:-

Lovina; born September 16, 1827.

Mary; " June 27, 1829.

John; " September 22,1832.

Hyrum; " April 27, 1834.

Jerusha; " January 13, 1836.

Sarah; " October 2,1837.

On October 13, 1837, while he was absent in Missouri, his wife died, leaving five small children.

On November 7,1837, at a conference held at Far West, Missouri, when Frederick G. Williams was rejected as Second Counselor to the President of the Church, Hyrum Smith was chosen to succeed him.
