145 years ago today - Nov 28, 1878

The Apostle Orson Hyde died this day at 6 oclok P.M. [in Spring City.] Thus has departed Another of the first Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of this last dispensation. This leaves but one alive in the first quorum of the Twelve Apostles viz Orson Pratt and two of the seconed quorum viz John Taylor and Wilford Woodruff the latter being the oldest man in the present Quorum of the Twelve and we know not how long we shall remain in the flesh.
