Orson & Marinda Hyde Home
Orson (1805-1878) and Marinda Johnson Hyde (1815-1886) married in 1834. They were involved in the earliest events of the Church, but Orson spent much of their early marriage away on missions. Marinda did her best to raise their two daughters with limited means in his absence. When the Saints began to leave Nauvoo, Brigham Young assigned Orson to remain behind to dedicate the Nauvoo Temple on May 1, 1846. The couple settled in Utah in 1852, after Orson led two different wagon trains along the Mormon Trail in 1850 and 1851.
