Abstract:

Lyman Wight (1796-1858) was born at Fairfield, New York, the son of Levi and Sarah Corbin Wight, and a descendant of Thomas Wight (d. 1674), the immigrant. He married Harriet Benton (1801-1889) in 1823 at Henrietta, New York. They had six children, 1823-1838. The family joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Saint in 1830 at Kirtland, Ohio, and migrated with members of the Church to western Missouri in 1831. He was imprisoned with the Prophet Joseph Smith and others at Liberty Jail, 1838-1839. Lyman Wight was ordained a member of the Council of the Twelve of the Church in 1841 at Nauvoo, Illinois. He married four other women, ca. 1845, and was the father of nine other children. In 1843, a group of families, known as the "Pine Company" went to Wisconsin to havest timber for building at Nauvoo with Lyman Wight in charge. This "Pine Company" migrated to Texas in 1845 after Joseph Smith's death, and settled at "Zodiac Community", near Fredericksburg, Texas. They later moved to Hamilton Valley, Burnet County, Texas, then Bandera County, Texas. The colony left Bandera County and was perhaps migrating to Utah when Lyman Wight died near San Antonio, Texas. Children and grandchildren listed lived in Nebraska, Iowa, Texas, Arizona, Utah, and elsewhere.
