Hyrum Smith property records and family record

Hyrum Smith (1800–1844) was the older brother of the Prophet Joseph. He was martyred with his brother in Carthage, Illinois, on June 27, 1844.

As we prepare to remember the lives of Joseph and Hyrum Smith on the 173rd anniversary of their deaths on June 27th, L. Tom Perry Special Collections is pleased to announce the availability of additional documents from the Hyrum Smith papers (Vault MSS 774) that were recently digitized. These include property records and a family record.  The property records digitized recently include the following:

The family record is a genealogical record of Hyrum Smith and his descendants, spanning four pages found in middle of the family bible; dated 1834-1872.

This completes the digitization of the Hyrum Smith papers (Vault MSS 774). We hope these documents will be of use to researchers, family, and other interested parties.
