Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and eldest son of Church Apostle Amasa M. Lyman.
He was asked by Pres. Brigham Young to settle in Fillmore, Utah where he became a leader in political, church, business and manufacturing enterprises of that county. Only a few of the more important of these can be named: he was assistant assessor of United States internal revenue; lieutenant-colonel of the first regiment of militia in the Pauvan District at the age of twenty-five years; member of the House of the General Assembly of the State of Deseret; a member of the 17th, 18th, 22nd and 23rd sessions of the Territorial legislature; county attourney.
While on tour of southern Utah, Arizona and New Mexico, and while away on this mission he was chosen one of the Twelve Apostles. He posessed a keen ability to receive impressions of approbation in his work, when he was doing right, was strongly developed in Apostle Lyman. In many of the important steps of his life, he was approved through dreams and inspirations, and even visits of men of God who have gone before. It has been thus made perfectly clear to him that his course is approved and his actions upheld. These visits and inspirations have been a source of great comfort to him.
He was called by the First Presidency to preside over the European Mission. In the spring of 1902 he visited Palestine and offered up a solemn prayer on the Mount of Olives. On the same trip he also visited Italy, Egypt, Asia Minor, Turkey, besides his two previous missions to England.
He died peacefully at his home.
