Religious Leader. A one time pastor under Sidney Rigdon's sect, when he was introduced to the new "gold bible" by Parley P. Pratt and companions. At first, Hyde became antagonistic but investigated the book and joined the Church in 1830. A profound missionary, being companions with Samuel H. Smith at one time, and upon his return married and was very soon called to the Apostleship. In the Far West era, he began to associate with apostate and former Quorum President Thomas B. Marsh and his teachings. Hyde was dropped from the Twelveand soon humbly sought forgiveness. While in Nauvoo, he had visions of himself in Palestine, on the Mount of Olives at an alter. He then found himself called by the Prophet Joseph to Palestine to dedicate the land for the return of scattered Judah. His companion was Elder John E. Page, but before they could even leave the country, Page was disaffected and went off on his own way, which left Hyde alone to fulfill the mission, which he successfully did. Returning home he established a homestead about 8 miles southeast of Winter Quarters, and after the trek west began, he stayed behind to take care of the Saints preparing to do the same. After the Brethren reached the Salt Lake Valley, they soon returned to Winter Quarters to re-establish the Presidency and the Twelve. It was at Orson Hyde's home that they hear the voice of the Lord designating Brigham as the new President. From there they were inspired to reorganize. Orson later moved to the Rocky Mountains with the remainder of the emigrating Saints, and settled in Spring City. (bio by: Chad Stowell)
