He was early placed upon his own resources, for when he was about two years old his father left home for the western country, never to return, and is supposed to have died in New Orleans. At the age of eighteen, just a year after the organization of the church, he became somewhat thoughtful on religious subjects. In the spring of 1832, Lyman E. Johnson and Orson Pratt visited the neighborhood where he lived and Amasa believed in their doctrine and was baptized by the former on April 27, 1832, being confirmed the following day by Orson Pratt.

On account of his Joining the Latter-day Saints ill feeling arose against him, in his uncle’s family where he resided, and for that reason he sot off for a journey with only scanty provisions and clothing. He arrived at Lyons, Wayne County, New York, and hired out to Thomas Lackey, who, by the-bye, was the man who purchased Martin Harris’ farm when he sold it to raise money for printing the Book of Mormon. He only stopped here a couple of weeks, and then made his way to Buffalo, and thence to Cleveland, Ohio, and later to Hyrum, Portage County, Ohio, where he was received by Father Johnson and family. He soon met the Prophet Joseph Smith and was given a living testimony by the spirit that he was a man of God. He was called on a mission on the 23d of August, 1832, by the Prophet Joseph, who ordained him an elder, and labored during the following winter with Zerubabel Snow in southern Ohio and Cable Company, Virginia. They returned to Kirtland early the following spring having added forty souls to the church.

He filled a second mission with William F. Cahoon, leaving March 21, 1833, and journeying as far as Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties, New York. During this mission he held 150 meetings and there were about a hundred souls added to the church. While on this mission the call reached him to go to Missouri. Arriving in Kirtland on May 1st, 1834, a few days later he joined Zion’s Camp at New Portage, and traveled with this organization to Missouri, suffering all the privations and difficulties of that famous trip. Having attended the dedication of the Kirtland temple. In the spring of 1836, in company with Elder Nathan Tanner ho filled another mission that year to the state of New York. In 1837, he went to Missouri and there experienced all the persecutions to which those of his belief were subjected. His family in the meantime were enabled to move to Illinois and he joined them in March, 1839. During that year he made two dangerous trips to Missouri for the purpose of assisting Elder Parley P. Pratt and his fellow prisoner and to attend to unsettled business.

He settled in Iowa in the spring of 1840, building a cabin for his family on the half-breed Indian tract in Lee county. In 1841, with his family, he moved to Nauvoo and later was called on a mission to northern Illinois and Wisconsin. He was subsequently directed in company with Peter Haws to go on a mission to secure means to build the Nauvoo temple and Nauvoo House, going as far east as Indiana.

In the spring of 1842 he was sent on a mission to the state of Tennessee with Horace K. Whitney and others. On the 20th of August, 1842, Elder Lyman was ordained to the apostleship, and the following month sent on a mission to southern Illinois in company with Elder George A. Smith, being a part of the time in company with Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball.

He went through many of the privations and trials at Nauvoo and filled many other missions in the states around about. In the spring of 1844 he went to Nauvoo to attend the April Conference, and it was here determined that he should go to Boston. He had proceeded only as far as Cincinnati (remaining until July), when he received the news of the massacre of the prophet and patriarch. Joseph and Hyrum Smith. He was recalled to Nauvoo, arriving there July 31, 1844, and was present at the meeting at Nauvoo on August 8th following when the twelve apostles were acknowledged as the presiding quorum of the church. He rendered efficient aid during the exodus of his people from Illinois in 1846, and was one of the pioneers of Utah in 1847.

In 1848 he led a large company of immigrants to the great Salt Lake valley. In 1850 he went on a mission to California, returning September 30th, of that year, and in 1851 he and Apostle Charles C. Rich were appointed to lead a company of settlers to California. This company left Payson, March 24, 1851, and arrived at San Bernardino the following June. It was a few months later. In September, that the ranch of San Bernardino was purchased, and a settlement was located. This was continued until 1857, when the Johnston army-Echo Canyon hostilities caused it to disintegrate when most of the in habitants had gone to Utah.

In 1860 he filled a mission to Great Britain, arriving July 27th, and in connection with Apostle Charles C. Rich presided over the European mission until March 14, 1862, when he returned home. It was while on this mission that he delivered the remarkable sermon at Dundee, Scotland, March 16, 1862, in which he denied the atonement of the Savior. Some time later he was summoned to answer the charge of having preached false doctrine, and he acknowledged his error, and signed a. document January 23, 1867, in which he asked forgiveness of the authorities. Soon after, however, he again preached in the same strain, and was finally excommunicated May 12, 1870. He died at Fillmore, Millard county, Utah, February 4, 1877.

When Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were assassinated at Carthage jail, in his native state of Illinois, President Francis M. Lyman was four and one-half years old. Only as a child would know and remember such great personages was it possible for him to know them, but in his mature manhood he has had a thorough knowledge of all their successors and through them a better understanding of those who have gone before. At home and abroad for fifty years, President Lyman has been in the missionary service, beginning the work at the age of twenty. He has officiated in the offices of elder, seventy, high priest and an apostle during the past thirty years of his life. Three missions in Europe, occupying all together seven and one half years, have been filled by him.

Elder Lyman’s childhood was spent in Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, Utah and California. For six years he lived at San Bernardino, California, and he was married there in 1867. During that year he returned to Utah, it being the time of the Echo Canyon Imbroglio, and resided later in Cedar City, Beaver, and Farmington. After his first mission in 1860-2, he located with his father and family, under the direction of President Brigham Young, at Fillmore, and it was his home for fourteen years. During this time he engaged enthusiastically in all the activities of the people of Millard county, being much of the time their public and official servant.

On March 23, 1866, he was appointed assistant assessor of Internal revenue for District No. 6 of Utah, by Hugh McCulloch, then secretary of the U. S. treasury. He served in this capacity under the following assessors: Col. J. C. Little, A. L. Chetlain, John E. Smith, Richard V. Morris, and Dr. John P. Taggart.

It was in 1866 that Elder Lyman with his father built the O. K. Flour Mills of Fillmore, and he was largely engaged in the flour and grain trade as well as in many more business enterprises.

In September, 1867, he was commissioned by Governor Durkee as lieutenant colonel of the first regiment of militia in the Pauvan military district. Two years later, 1869, he was elected a member of the house of representatives of the general assembly of the state of Deseret for Millard county and subsequently represented that county in the territorial legislature of Utah in the 17th, 18th, 22d and 23d sessions, and Tooele county in the 24th and 25th sessions. In the 25th session (1882), he acted as speaker of the house, while President Joseph F. Smith was president of the council (now senate).

He served as high councilor in Millard stake about six years, and in political activities occupied the positions of district attorney, superintendent of common schools, county and probate clerk and recorder. He was also secretary and treasurer of the county cooperative companies, and did the land business of the county, such as homesteading, preempting and the entering of town sites with Probate Judge Edward Partridge and Mayor Joseph V. Robison. It was during the organization of the stakes of Zion by President Brigham Young in 1877 [died August 29 of that year], that Elder Lyman was called to preside over the Tooele stake of Zion when it was organized by [Apostle] President John Taylor and the other apostles on June 24, 1877. Later he was chosen by election of the people as a representative of Tooele county, and county clerk and recorder, serving in those positions about four years. He had a most thrilling experience in the fight with the liberals, and it was during his term of office that the people succeeded in redeeming Tooele county from their unrighteous rule. With Elders Erastus Snow, Brigham Young, Jr., and eight others, he went on a mission, in 1880, to San Juan county,

Utah, and in to Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. During this trip they traveled 1,800 miles with teams. It was during this year and while at Orderville, Kane county, on the 10th of October, that he was chosen at the general semiannual conference of the church, one of the council of the twelve apostles, John Henry Smith being chosen at the same time. Both were ordained by President John Taylor and Wilford Woodruff on the 27th of October, 1880, in the Endowment House.

He filled a second mission to Europe in 1873-4-6, just before moving to Tooele. Since he was chosen an apostle he has been engaged exclusively in the spiritual and temporal welfare of the people of the church. He has visited the stakes of Zion over and over again and given counsel and advice to the people serving towards their spiritual growth and strength. In a temporal way he has served as a director in such institutions as ZCMI, Zion’s Savings Bank and Trust Company, Consolidated Wagon and Machine Company, Home Fire Insurance Company, Heber J. Grant & Company, Deseret National Bank, Beneficial Life Insurance Company, Zion’s Cooperative Home Building and Real Estate Company, president and director Utah Pioneers Book Publishing Company, etc.

After the death of President Brigham Young, Jr., in 1903, he was sustained president of the council of the twelve and was blessed and set apart for that presidency in the temple by President Joseph F. Smith and his counselors and the twelve, on the 7th of July, 1904, since which time he has filled another mission to Europe, presiding over the European mission, May, 1901 to January 1904 besides laboring diligently in his office and calling at home. While on this last mission, he not only visited many of the European countries, including Russia, but also the Holy Land, and Egypt, and wherever he went he turned the keys for the establishment of liberty and the preaching of the Gospel. His traveling companions were Elders Sylvester Q. and Joseph J. Cannon.
