Death: Jan., 1866

Apostle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
While investigating the Church, he met Martin Harris at the E.B. Grandin printing office where the Book of Mormon was being published, and was baptized a few weeks later, and served a mission through Canada and the eastern States.
The first twelve men to this calling in this dispensation were called by the Three Witnesses, by revelation, in Kirtland, OH on Feb. 14, 1835. They were ranked in seniority according to age, Thomas B. Marsh then being first in seniority.
He first began to rebel against the Church in Missouri where he signed a petition against Joseph Smith, believed to be the deciding factor in Governor Lilburn W. Boggs Extermination Order.
If it were not his apostacy and reinstatement for the Twelve it would have been Brother Marsh that proceeded the Prophet Joseph Smith and led the Saints to the Rocky Mountains instead of Brigham Young.
After his 1857 move to Utah, he wrote Brigham requesting rebaptism. President Young let him address his convictions to the main body of the Church where he admitted his fault and was sustained unanimously back into fellowship. Eventually he was reordained to the office of High Priest.
