Son of Amasa Mason Lyman and Caroline Ely Partridge

Married Ann Elizabeth Lovell, 6 Dec 1875, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah

Millard County Progress, 2/10/1911

Fredric Rich Lyman who departed this life at Oak City, Feb. 4, 1911, the son of Amasa Mason Lyman and Caroline Ely (Partridge) Lyman was born at Salt Lake City, October 12th, 1856. He was a grandson of Edward Partridge, the first bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

With his parents and others of his fathers family, he removed to Fillmore in the early 60's, he was baptized Nov. 18, 1865 by Daniel Thompson and confirmed on the same day by Thomas Callister. About the year 1871, in connection with his brothers, Pluete D., Edward L., Joseph A., Walter C., and George Finlinson, John W. Dutson and others, he was called by Pres. Thomas Callister to settle in Oak City for the purpose of strengthening the small colony which was then located at that place and then began the eventful career which characterized his life's labors.

On the 6th day of December 1875, at Salt lake City, he married Ann Elizabeth Lovell, daughter of John and Ann (Jorgenson) Lovell. She was born in Fillmore Dec. 13, 1859, their only child Edith Alzina Lyman was born at Oak City Aug. 4th, 1879. She is now the wife of Bp. Joseph Finlinson of the Oak Creek Ward in the Millard Stake of Zion.

About the year 1886, he filled a mission to the Southern States and shortly after his return, he was called to labor in the Bishopric of the Oak Creek Ward as a Counselor to Bp. Peter Anderson, in which capacity he labored for about 20 years. In 1907 he was called to labor in the Millard Stake of Zion as First Counselor to Pres. Alonzo A. Hinckley, in which capacity he labored during the remainder of his life and in the same year, he became connected with the settlement of the Burtner Ward of the Millard Stake and was President of it's Irrigation Co. from its inception.

In all these labors, he endeared himself to the hearts of the people among whom he labored, as few men could do. He was an intense lover of nature and could see its beauties in all its creation, he was a leading spirit in all public improvements and his hard work may be seen in all the public improvements of his home town and of the town of Burtner, the growth of which he watched with such fatherly care. He spared no pains to make his home surroundings attractive and beautiful and his is one of the finest homes in Oak City. His taking away closes the mutual career of one of the Lord's noble men, a kind and affectionate husband and father, a friend of the needy, a stay and strength to the weak, a benefactor to his race and a Latter-Day Saint in every deed.

His demise occurred 34 years to a day after that of his father, and has cast a gloom over the entire stake of Zion and where ever he was known. Two hundred and sixty five relatives and friends attended the funeral services which were held at Oak City Feb. 6th, 1911, the opening prayer was offered by Willis E. Robison, beautiful and appropriate music was rendered by the Oak Creek ward choir under the direction of chorister Eddie Q. Dutson and the casket was covered with beautiful and fragrant floral offerings.

Many eulogies and comforting remarks were made by elders Thomas O. Callister, Bp. Peter Anderson, Richard R. Lyman, David R. Stevens, Ernest D. Partridge, Bp. H. E. Maxfield of Burtner, Pres. Orvil L. Thompson, Pres. Alonzo A. Hinckley, Apostle George F. Richards and Pres. Francis M. Lyman. The benediction was pronounced by Bp. Wm. R. Thompson of Scipio and Elder Edgar W. Jeffery of Burtner offered the dedicatory prayer at the grave.

Peace be unto the dead and may the Lord bless and comfort the living. "Though deepening trials throng thy way, Press on, press on ye saints of God, Ere long the resurrection day, will spread its light and mirth abroad".
