About Ida Frances Hunt

Ida Frances Hunt was born on March 8, 1858 at Hamilton Fort (near Cedar City, Utah) in the back of a wagon to parents John Hunt and Lois Pratt. The family was on their way to Utah from San Bernardino, California. Ida grew up in Beaver, Utah. She kept books for Beaver Woolen Mills, sang in the choir, and was active in the Beaver theater. She also taught in the territorial school. The family moved to New Mexico where they hauled freight for the government for two years. Afterwards, they settled in Snowflake, Arizona. Four years later, on May 26, 1882, Ida married David King Udall in the St. George Temple. As the second wife in a plural marriage, she spent much of her life between 1883-1892 living with relatives in Nephi, Utah, and Snowflake in order to avoid U.S. Marshals. The couple had six children: Pauline, Grover, John, Jesse, Gilbert and Don. Ida died on April 26, 1915, at the young age of 57.

David King Udall was born on September 7, 1851, in St. Louis, Missouri. He was the son of David and Eliza King Udall. David grew up in Nephi, Utah. He married Eliza Luella Stuart on February 1,1875, but soon thereafter he went on a mission to Great Britain. He returned in 1877 and moved his family to Kanab, Utah. In 1880 David moved to Arizona and served as bishop to the St. Johns Ward. Eliza Luella Stuart (Ella) and David King had five children: Pearl, Erma, Luella, David K., Jr. and Levi S. In 1887 he was made stake president to preside over seven wards in Arizona. He testified in the land claim case of Miles P. Romney and was later tried for perjury for that testimony. He was sentenced to three years in the Detroit House of Correction. He served time in Detroit from Sept 2, 1885, to December17, 1885, when he received a presidential pardon. He served as stake president until 1922; he was then ordained patriarch for the St. Johns Stake. The Mesa, Arizona, Temple was dedicated in 1927, and David King was chosen to be temple president and served in that capacity until 1934. Eliza Luella died on May 28, 1937. David died in St. Johns on February 18, 1938.
