Hyde, Rosel, counselor in the Kaysville Ward bishopric from 1858 to 1877, is a son of Heman Hyde and Polly W. Tilton, and was born at York, Livingston county, N.Y., May 20, 1816. He was baptized May 8, 1836, by Joel H. Johnson at Kirtland, Ohio, and confirmed the same day. He moved from Kirtland with his father's family to Missouri, where, within two days' drive of Far West, they were met by a mob and forced to leave the State. They fled to Quincy, Ill., where they wintered. Rosel was married Dec. 12, 1839, and in 1843 he moved to Bear creek settlement, Hancock county, Ill. He was driven from the State in 1846, along with the rest of the Saints. He settled near the Missouri river, a short distance below Winter Quarters, at a place called Council Point, and remained there till May 20, 1849, when he took up the march for the Rocky Mountains. He arrived in Salt Lake City in September, of the same year, where he first settled, but moved to Kaysville in the spring of 1853. Here he built a house on the farm on which he now resides. He joined with the Saints in their exodus south in 1858, but returned the same year. In the fall of 1858 he was set apart as first counselor to Bishop Allen Taylor of Kaysville and held that position during that Bishop's administration. Christopher Layton succeeded Bishop Taylor as Bishop, and Bro. Hyde served as his first counselor until 1877, when Christopher Layton was chosen as a member of the Stake presidency. He was ordained a Patriarch by Franklin D. Richards Jan. 13, 1878. As captain of a Church train he went to Winter Quarters in 1863, and returned the same season with a company of emigrants. He filled a mission to New York State in the winter of 1859-60: served in Territorial legislature in the session of 1858-59, and served as county selectman in Davis county five successive terms of three years each. He has been mayor of Kaysville, and held several other important civil positions there. Bro. Hyde has been a very energetic and thrifty man, has labored hard and accomplished much good in the developments of the resources of the country.
