Assistant President and Patriarch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Killed in Carthage with Joseph Smith. Before they were killed Joseph ordained Hyrum to succeed as President and pleaded with him to flee to the Rocky Mountains away from the mobs. As the Carthage mob attacked the jail a bullet broke through the door hitting Hyrum in the face, while a second bullet hit him in the back from the window at the same time, he fell to the floor crying, "I am a dead man" He bleed to death in Joseph's arms, just moments before the Joseph Smith's own death.
