Hiram Page was an early member of the Latter-day Saint movement and one of the Eight Witnesses to the Book of Mormon's golden plates. Page was born in Vermont. Earlier in his life, he studied medicine which he practiced during his travels throughout New York and Canada. On November 10, 1825, Page married Catherine Whitmer, daughter of Peter Whitmer, Sr. and Mary Musselman. The two had nine children together: John, Elizabeth, Philander, Mary, Peter, Nancy, Hiram, Oliver, and Kate. Page became one of the Eight Witnesses during June 1829. He and Catherine were baptized into in the Church of Christ on April 11, 1830, by Oliver Cowdery. On June 9, he was ordained a teacher in the church, one of the church's first twelve officers. While Page was living with the Whitmers in Fayette, New York, Smith arrived in August 1830 to discover Page using a "seerstone" to receive revelations for the church. The only available detail about the stone was that it was black. The revelations were regarding the organization and location of Zion. Cowdery and the Whitmer family believed the revelations Page had received were true.
