Doctrine and Covenants 52:37

Biographical Summary:

"...In 1830 Heman was residing with one hundred individuals, known collectively as the "Family," sharing all things equally on the Isaac Morley farm in Kirtland. In October 1830 he, along with many of the "Family," was baptized by the missionaries who had been sent to the Lamanites..."

"...Not only was Levi Hancock deceived by Heman, but he was also robbed: "While I was in the room at 'Father Morley's' this same [Heman] Bassett came to me and took my watch out of my pocket and walked off as though it was his. I thought he would bring it back soon but was disappointed as he sold it. I asked him what he meant by selling my watch. 'Oh, said he, I thought it was all in the family.' I told him I did not like such family doing and I would not bear it."..."

"...Despite his shortcomings, Heman was ordained an elder in the spring of 1831..."

"...Heman Basset was among the first members of the Church to leave the fellowship of the Saints in Ohio. Little is known of his later life except that he managed a hotel at Petaluma, California, for many years before migrating across the country to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he died in 1876..."
