History - Baptized and confirmed in the Mormon Church, December 25, 1832, by Orson Pratt, in Lake George.

In winter of 1833 and 1834 with family moved to Kirtland, Ohio, where on June 10, 1835, she married Amasa M. Lyman. She shared the history and fate of the Church in Ohio, Missouri, Illinois and in the pioneer movements to Utah in those early days of hardship and poverty, uncomplainingly.

Was a pioneer also to San Bernardino, California, 1851, returning to Utah in 1858, locating in Cedar, Beaver, Fillmore, Tooele and Salt Lake City. She had eight children and raised six orphans.

In 1887 Mrs. Lyman, for 68 days, was visiting the waste places of Zion in the east and spent six weeks with her sister, Mrs. Matilda Randall, from whom she had been separated over fifty years. She made this journey when she was 69 years of age, being, her last great journey, in company with her elder son.

The latter years of her life she lived with her son, Francis M. Lyman, and daughter, Mrs. L. Josephine Coombs, during her 29 years of widowhood in Tooele and Salt Lake City, where she died at the age of 87 years and 6 months. At that time her posterity numbered 214. Her children, six girls and two boys, were Matilda, Francis Marion, Ruth Adelia, Amasa Mason, Maria Louisa, Lelia Deseret, Love Josephine and Agnes Hila. Five of her girls preceded her in death.

She lived and died a loving, constant wife and mother. A true woman and a devout Latter-day Saint. She endured patiently the hardships of pioneer and frontier life in poverty all her days. She was a renowned economist, hopeful and resourceful and never discouraged. Her charity and womanly virtues never failed. She died without sickness and it was difficult to tell when her spirit took its departure.

Mrs. Lyman was an intimate acquaintance of the Prophet Joseph Smith and his Patriarch Brother Hyrum and the family and all of the early leaders of the church. (bio by: SMSmith)
