UTAH OBITUARIES OF ALFORDS

AND SPELLING VARIATIONS

 

Obituaries are listed alphabetically by FIRST name. Included are people whose last name, maiden name, or married name is Alford or a spelling variation: Alfred, Alvord, Allford, Halford, Hallford, Holford, etc.

 

The name of the newspaper (or other source) and place and date of publication follow the name of the deceased. If we included the obituary in AAFA ACTION, the issue is noted.

 

The Alford American Family Association (AAFA) usually adds notes for each obituary, including Social Security Death Index (SSDI) data, relationship of the deceased to other Alfords, and lineages. However, in the interest of making the obituaries available online, we did not add notes to most of these Utah obituaries. We will add to AAFA NOTES as time permits.

 

Where lineages are included (Alford unless otherwise stated), the format is: Name, year of birth, state or country of birth.

 

Obituaries of AAFA members and their spouses are also included on the AAFA Member Memorials web page and may include more information.

 

We welcome corrections and additional information. If you have an obituary from this state that is not included here, please share it with us!

FORMER COLORADO STATE FOOTBALL PLAYER AARON ALFORD DIES AT AGE 39

 

            Aaron Alford, a CSU football player in the early 1990s, died Monday of an apparent heart attack in Park City, Utah, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. He was 39.

            He suffered the apparent heart attack while attending to school business at the Park City School District offices, team captain Konnor Andersen told the Deseret News of Salt Lake City.

            Alford was the executive director of the New Beginnings Behavioral Treatment Agency in Park City and an assistant football coach at Park City High School. He was to become the school's athletic director this fall.

            He had been an assistant coach at the University of Utah from 2007-2010.

            “We lost a great Ram yesterday with the sudden passing of Aaron Alford,’’ Colorado State University football coach Jim McElwain said Tuesday in a post on his Twitter account. “We send our deepest condolences to the Alford family for their loss.’’

            Alford also worked as an assistant coach at Southern Utah from 1999-2000, Western Illinois in 2001, Wyoming in 2002 and Akron from 2004-06.

            Alford's older brother, Tony, was a CSU running back from 1987-90. He set a school record for single-game rushing yards with 310 in a 1989 game against Utah.

            Tony Alford took a leave of absence Monday from his job as an assistant coach at Notre Dame after learning of his brother's passing, the Chicago Tribune reported.

            Aaron Alford is survived by his wife, Linda, and three children. His son, Eli, is on the Park City High School football team, the Deseret News reported.

 

AAFA NOTES: SSDI records do not list his death.

            We included the obituary of his father, Robert Lee Alford Jr., in Colorado Obituaries.

WOMAN AND CHILDREN IN NEED OF HELP

 

            Mrs. Lizzie Alford, her two children, Samuel Leslie Alford, aged two years, and Archie Ray Alford, aged six years, and her niece, Sadie Alford, were found by Chief of Police Browning yesterday morning and sent to the Crittenton home.

            Mrs. Alford and the three children who were only half clad and were half starved, got off the train coming from Nevada and after being refused admittance at several of the rooming houses of the city, went to the City Hall park, where they were found by Chief Browning.

            When taken to the Crittenton home Mrs. Alford said that she and her husband had been living in a tent on McIntosh’s ranch near Wells, Nevada. She had come hither to find a home and her husband was to follow her in a few days.

            The woman and the children are without money and are badly in need.

            It is probable that steps will be taken today to secure financial aid for the unfortunate mother and children by popular subscription.

BENJAMIN BROMLEY ALVORD

 

STANDARD-EXAMINER

Ogden, Weber Co., UT—Wednesday, 15 June 1927

 

UTAH PIONEER OF 1848 IS DEAD

 

            Benjamin Alvord, aged 93, pioneer of 1848, died on Tuesday evening at 8 o’clock in Roy [Weber Co.], following a short illness. He was born in Water’s Ford, Mich. on January 2, 1834, a son of Benjamin [sic—Thaddeus] and Sarah Briggs Alvord. He came to Utah in 1848 with his parents, his father being a veteran of the war of 1812.

            Mr. Alvord had lived in Ogden, North Ogden, Weber county and Brigham City for many years. His wife, Matilda [sic—Malinda] Crockett Alvord, died in Brigham City 31 years ago.

            Surviving are a son, R.H. Alvord, Farr West, and a daughter, Mrs. Jennie Boothe of Ogden. Ten grandchildren and five great-grandchildren also survive.

            Funeral services will be held on Thursday afternoon at 1 o’clock in the Lindquist chapel with Bishop Harold Campbell presiding. The body may be viewed this evening and also on Thursday until time of services at the chapel. Interment will be made in the Ogden City cemetery.

We included the obituary of his daughter Jennie Alvord Boothe Spencer in California Obituaries.

            His middle name on his gravestone is Brot?, with an engraving correction appearing to have been made on the last letter. It is probably incorrect—his middle name is listed as Bromley in A Genealogy of the Descendants of Alexander Alvord. Bromley was the maiden name of his father’s first wife—Benjamin’s mother was his father’s third wife, Sarah “Sally” Briggs.

            Also incorrect is his birth year. His obituary says he was born “January 2, 1834,” and was age 93, but his gravestone clearly says “Jan. 3, 1884.” A Genealogy of the Descendants of Alexander Alvord, p. 130, says he was born “Jan. 3, 1835.”

From their grandson Richard Alvord

 

BOX ELDER NEWS

Brigham City, Box Elder Co., UT—5 June 1923

 

            Benjamin T. Alvord died at his home in this city yesterday morning at six o’clock of pernicious anemia. Mr. Alvord was brought to this city Sunday evening by his wife and family and Lloyd Rees from the ranch near Idaho Falls, Idaho, having taken seriously ill Monday. He had been afflicted with this disease during the past two years, but recovered materially from the trouble last winter when given two blood infusions at the Pearse hospital. About two weeks ago he drove from his ranch to this city, taking his wife and family back with him to Idaho, where they have been accustomed to spending the summer.

            Benjamin T. Alvord was born Jan. 16, 1870, in Brigham City. He was a son of Benjamin B. and the late Malinda Crockett Alvord. He grew to manhood here, receiving his education in the public schools. In January, 1897, he married Miss Lana Jensen, also of this city. In 1902 he left for a mission to the Southern States, returning in 1904. He was a quiet unassuming man, tending strictly to his own affairs; yet possessed of a cheerful disposition and a man of high ideals with a will power to live up to his convictions.

            During the past twenty-five years he and his brother Reuben E. Alvord, have been interested in the sheep business in this state and Idaho, and were very successful in that line. Two years ago they sold their sheep and dissolved partnership.

            Surviving are the widow and the following children, Anna, Alice and Ralph Alvord. Also his aged father who resides at North Ogden, and the following brothers and sisters: Edward Hancock of Ogden; Mrs. Joseph H. Watkins, Mrs. Brigham Wright and Mrs. Jennie Boothe of this city, David Hancock of West Weber, and Reuben E. Alvord of Far West.

            Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at 1 o’clock at the Fourth ward chapel, under the direction of Bishop Brigham Wright. Interment will take place at the city cemetery.

CONNER DANIEL ALVORD

 

STANDARD-EXAMINER

Ogden, Weber Co., UT—Saturday, 23 December 2006

 

SALT LAKE CITY—Conner Daniel Alvord, 23 months old, died Thursday, December 21, 2006, from complications following a long illness.

            Conner was born January 1, 2005, in Ogden, a son of Ben Palmer and Tami Librandi Alvord. He spent his life at home in Ogden and at Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City.

            Nothing made Conner more happy than his slinky, his binky, and his family. Nothing made them happier than to see his beautiful smile. He also had a wonderful family at Primary Children’s who cared for him like he was their own.

            Surviving are his parents and his brother, Dallas....

            Funeral services will be held today in Ogden for friends and family members. Funeral Directors, Lindquist’s Ogden Mortuary.

Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., UT—Monday, 25 December 2006

 

            Conner Alvord’s family described him much like any toddler. He loved his toy Slinky and his “binky,” the family wrote.

            But a genetic disorder prevented Conner from having a normal childhood. In 2005 he became the youngest liver transplant recipient in the history of Primary Children’s Medical Center. He continued suffering from health problems and died Thursday, according to a published obituary. He was 23 months old.

            “He was with us, with his family and he just passed away in his sleep,” said Conner’s father, Ben Alvord.

            Conner was born on New Year’s Day 2005 to Ben and Tami Alvord in what was an uneventful delivery. But when the newborn had trouble eating, he was placed in critical care at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden. Tests showed he had an abnormal liver. Five days after his birth, a helicopter flew Conner to Primary Children’s.

            At age seven weeks, Conner received a liver from a 4-year-old California girl. The initial transplant surgery took 12 hours, with subsequent procedures during the following two weeks.

            Conner appeared well at first, but then his health declined. He spent the remainder of his life in and out of Primary Children’s. At one point, his parents rented an apartment in Salt Lake City rather than commute from Ogden.

            Then on Nov. 3, someone set fire to the Alvords’ home in Ogden. Conner’s father, Ben Alvord, the only person home at the time, said he was stepping out of the shower when the blaze started. He received burns to 50 percent of his body. Investigators believe an arsonist set the fire, which caused $60,000 to $80,000 damage. No arrests have been made in the case.

            Mom spent much of her life traveling and living in the western United States. She returned home to Utah in 1972.

DT6O_Dollene.jpg

 

            Dollene Joan Egan left us on the evening of April 20th 2012 at her home in Washington Utah to be with her loved ones who went before her.

            Harry Egan her husband of 62 years was by her side with their two daughters Pat Gonzalez and Sandi Rose.

            Dollene Joan Alford was born on August 24, 1930 to Cathelma Julia Alford (Reed) and Albert Darwin Alford in Mankato [Jewell Co.] Kansas. She had two sisters Roberta Alene and Catherine Althea.

            Harry and Dolly (as most knew her by) were married on August 18 1950 in Manhatten Kansas.

            Dolly was educated in Nebraska, she graduated from Superior High School in 1947. She also attended Kansas Wesleyan University. While she was attending the University she was playing on a softball team sponsored by Salina Roofing Co. Two of the owner’s sons decided to introduce their younger brother, Jim Egan (AKA Harry) to Dolly. On their first date Jim proposed and Dolly &she said, "Yes!" They were married less than a year later and would have celebrated their 62nd anniversary this August.

            Dolly was a real estate agent for several years and received awards for her abilities. She also was employed by Pacific Telephone from which she retired after many years to be with Harry. She enjoyed golfing, antiques, pretty sunsets and flowers. Dolly and Harry had a unique ability to buy homes that needed TLC, fix them up beautifully and then sell them for a nice profit.

            They moved from Kansas early in their marriage and went to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Then on to California, New York, Arizona, and finally Utah. In Dolly’s later years her main hobby and love was Harry. They spent all their time together going for drives, dates, Costco (of course), anywhere as long as they were together.

            She is survived by her husband (first and only love) Harry Egan of Washington Utah. Daughters Patricia Jollene Gonzalez (David B.) of Mt. Pleasant Utah and Sandra Diane Rose (Jack) of Palmdale California. Her sister Catherine Althea Jorn of Hastings Nebraska; 13 grandchildren, 23+ great-grandchildren, and numerous family and friends.

            Dolly was preceded in death by her parents, sister Roberta, and son James Alan Egan.

            On Saturday the 28th day of April 2012 we will be holding a private memorial for Dolly at their home for family members only.

            We appreciate special help from Applegate Hospice Care, mainly Rayan Ekins RN. She was precious and we all came to love her. We also send a big "Thank you!" to their sweet and helpful friends and neighbors, Ed and Sharon Nagy, for being there for them!

            Dolly was a special lady of many talents and we will all miss her dearly.

            Condolences may be shared at mcmillanmortuary.com.

IRVIN THADDEUS ALVORD

 

STANDARD-EXAMINER

Ogden, Weber Co., UT—Monday, 23 April 1934

 

 

            Irvin Thaddeus Alvord, aged 74, early Weber county resident and retired business man of Ogden, died in a hospital at six o’clock this morning, following a long illness. In October 1923, Mr. Alvord suffered a paralytic stroke, from which he had never recovered.

            He was born in Springville, April 28, 1860, a son of Simon and Jane Blanchard Alvord. His father came with the pioneers of 1847, and his mother walked across the plains with pioneers of 1852.

            Mr. Alvord, although only a small boy, never forgot any of the hardships and Indian depredations suffered by the pioneers. He remembered the fort wall built in Springville as a protection against the Indians and it was to this fort that his parents, grandparents and many of the settlers of Weber county moved for safety against the invasion of Johnson’s army, leaving their homes and growing crops to find that the army proved a blessing as it brought food and other necessities.

            In 1864 Mr. Alvord’s parents moved to North Ogden and in 1869 established a permanent home in Pleasant View. He received his education in the Weber county schools and later took a normal course at the university in Salt Lake City. He taught school in the Central High School and also taught in Plain City and Eden. He was an active member of the L.D.S. Church and served in prominent positions in church organizations.

            He was the Pleasant View ward clerk, teacher in the Sunday school, secretary of the Y.M.M.I.A., and ward missionary. He also organized a civil government class and served as instructor of the same. He led in the community as an organizer of social and dramatic activities.

            He was a farmer and orchardist of Pleasant View and later bought an interest in the Bramwell Product company in Ogden. In the early 90’s he invented and patented the Little Wonder vacuum washing machine. In 1906 Mr. Alvord sold his farm in Pleasant View and moved to Ogden, where he ran a second-hand store for many years.

            While in Ogden he took an active part in the Second ward Sunday school and other church duties. In 1921 he moved to St. Petersburg, Florida, where he invested in real estate, later going to Benton, Harbor, Mich., where he devoted his time to writing. He published a book on political economy and government reform.

            He was married in the Logan temple November 18, 1885, to Sylvia Stone, who died in 1925. Later he was married to Carrie W. Alvord, who survives him.

            He is also survived by five children of the first marriage—Irving V. Alvord, A.A. Alvord, of Ogden; Friend LeRoy Alvord, of Denver; Mrs. LeRoy DeFrost, of New York, and Mrs. M.M. Silvera, of Menlo Park, Calif. There are also five grandchildren and two sisters, Mrs. Lenora Bothwell and Mrs. Jeanette Brown, both of Pleasant View.

            Services will be held Wednesday afternoon at one o’clock in Lindquist & Sons chapel, with Bishop H.L. Jensen of Pleasant View presiding…. Interment will be made in the North Ogden cemetery.

JOHN ALFORD

 

SALT LAKE HERALD

Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., UT—12 April 1902

 

WELL KNOWN OLD RESIDENT DIES FROM INJURIES IN TWO FALLS.

 

            From injuries received in two accidents last summer, John Alford, the venerable and popular dry goods salesman of Z.C.M.I., died at his home, 86 Center street, early yesterday morning. Eight months ago he fell from a moving street car and a short time later fell from the steps of a Saltair car at the depot. Complications ensued and together with infirmities of old age his constitution was so weakened that he was forced to give up the fight for life. His death was directly due to inflammation of the brain.

            The funeral will be held on Sunday at the Nineteenth ward meeting house at 12 o’clock. The remains may be viewed at the family home from 10:30 till 11:30 tomorrow.

            Mr. Alford was born at Bourton, Dorsetshire, England, July 3, 1826, making his age 75 years. At the age of 12 years he went to live with his uncle, who owned a large dry goods business at Chippingham, Wiltshire, and was reared there with the understanding that he would be made his uncle’s heir. When the then young man joined the Mormon church a coolness sprang up between the uncle and nephew, and at the old gentleman’s death, three years afterward, Mr. Alford found himself cut off with only $1,000.

            Mr. Alford had unusually excellent educational opportunities in his youth and was reared amid aristocratic environments, and even until his demise he was famed for his Chesterfieldian manners. In 1863 Mr. Alford emigrated to Utah, and soon after entered the employ of the late George Goddard. For thirty years he was one of the head salesmen of Z.C.M.I.’s dry goods department. His reputation among his fellows was that he could sell goods which they could not dispose of. Thousands of strangers who have visited the big store on Main street knew him as their chaperon over this immense business institution.

            He was a very devout churchman and a faithful and consistent Democrat. For fourteen years he was a home missionary, and at all times he was very much interested in Sunday school work. He was for many years assistant superintendent of the Sabbath school in his ward.

            In 1872 Mr. Alford visited his native land, and in the following year he married the widow of Captain Robert Ripley of the East Indies. Five children were the result of the union, three of them surviving. The deceased’s oldest son is Captain John Waters Alford, now with the Aschheim Mercantile company, but formerly a resident of this city.

July 26 2013 ~ March 9, 2014

 

EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah—Heaven received a new little angel on Sunday, March 9th, when our sweet little Kai returned to the presence of our Heavenly Father. He was a fighter and fought a valiant battle against several ailments most of his life.

            To know little Kai was to be smitten. His personality was magnetizing and his smile infectious. His dazzling deep blue eyes have stolen our hearts forever. He was very versatile...his Mommy's cuddle bug one minute to her personal trainer laughing and "cheering" her through her workout routines the next. Kai adored Daddy's voice and there was no keeping him asleep if ever he heard it! He had a love for music....his favorite pastime was watching Baby Einstein videos and his favorite lullaby was "A Child's Prayer." Always very animated, he loved playing with his toys while kicking and waving his arms in delight. He had four dogs, who he mesmerized with his spirit.

            He is survived by his parents Spencer James Halford and Jessica Kunz Halford of Eagle Mountain, Utah, grandparents Blaine L. and Lora L. Halford of Burley, Idaho, Shari Crane also of Burley, Ronald E. and Raelynne Kunz of West Jordan, Utah, many aunts, uncles and cousins.

            Funeral services will be held Thursday March 13, 2014 at 11:00 am at the Eagles Gate 2nd Ward chapel located at 3793 Rose Hearty Ln, Eagle Mountain, Utah.

LOWELL ALVORD DIES OF ACCIDENT

 

            Lowell Alvord, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ruben E. Alvord, formerly of this city but now residing at Far West, died Wednesday morning at 4 o’clock at the Dee hospital in Ogden. The young man was run over by a gravel train at the Promontory point Tuesday afternoon at 4 o’clock, and had both legs practically severed just above the knees. He was rushed to the hospital in Ogden, arriving there about six o’clock that evening. An operation was found necessary, and the left leg was amputated, but the amputation of the other leg was deferred on account of Mr. Alvord’s weakened condition.

            The sad news of the young man’s terrible accident was a shock to his many friends in this city.

            Mr. Alvord was born in this city about twenty-one years ago where he grew to young manhood. He was a graduate of the Box Elder high school and active in the social and religious affairs of the city. He removed with his parents to Far West about three years ago where he later married Miss Mable Martin.

            Surviving are the widow and an 18-months old son, his parents and two sisters. Also many other relatives in this city.

            Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 1 o’clock at the Far West ward chapel. Interment will be made in the Ogden cemetery.

            Mrs. Martha Alford, wife of Chas Alford, died at her home near the ball park Tuesday [October 3] at 1 o clock, she having been stricken with paralysis the day before. Mrs. Alford had been attacked in a like manner once before and this weakened her somewhat so that the second shock proved fatal.

            The funeral was held Wednesday, it being necessary owing to the nature of the disease to have the body interred as quickly as possible. Mrs. Olivia Anson and John Rees, sister and brother of Mrs. Alford, came up from the city to attend the funeral.

            Mrs. Alford had resided in this city a number of years having been married here nineteen years ago. She was 43 years of age and left no family. Mrs. Alferd had many friends in this city and to her sorrowing husband, their sincere sympathy is extended.

 

AAFA NOTES: See the obituary of her husband, Charles H. Alfred, in this compilation.

            The obituary spells her last name Alford in all instances except the last, where it is Alferd.

            From her death certificate [FamilySearch.org]: Martha Sarah Alferd [sic], born 18 July 1863 in London, England, died 2 Oct 1905 in Park City, Summit Co. Her parents were John Reese and Sarah Snook. The informant’s name appears to be Chas. H. Alferd.

YOUNG MOTHER VICTIM OF TYPHOID

 

            The angel of death entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Higley last Saturday morning and called their daughter, Mrs. Mattie Alvord who had been suffering three weeks with typhoid which followed a premature child birth. Mrs. Alvord was brought in from her home at Black Pines where her husband has a ranch, was confined and then the fever developed. Her weakened condition following the birth of her baby, made it impossible for her system to fight off the fever and she passed away as stated above.

            She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Higley and was born in this city on April 25th, 1887. She grew to young womanhood here and in making trips to her father’s ranch at Black Pines, she became acquainted with Friend L. Alvord of Ogden who was also a land holder out there and they were married about four years ago. A little girl three years of age and the baby boy, recently born with their father are left to mourn the loss of mother and wife.

            Mrs. Alvord was well known among the middle aged people of this city where she had a host of friends. She possessed a very sunny disposition and endeared herself to all with whom she became acquainted.

            Funeral services were held in the Fourth ward chapel on Tuesday of this week, Bishop Brigham Wright in charge. There was a wealth of flowers and big attendance of sypmpathizing friends. The speakers were O.G. Bargeron, Dr. D.W. Henderson, Patriarch Denmark Jensen, John E. Baird and Bishop Wright, all of whom testified of the noble traits of character possessed by the deceased and spoke words of consolation to those bereaved….

AAFA NOTES: See the obituaries of her husband, Joseph Bonaparte Alvord; and daughter Susan Alvord Farr Hunter in this compilation. We included the obituaries of her son Joseph Leroy Alvord in California Obituaries; and of her daughters Amy Alvord Hadley and Florence Alvord Greenwell in Idaho Obituaries.

            Life and Testimony of Sarah Elizabeth Mower Alvord, told by her daughter Amy Alvord Hadley, is a brief biography of Sarah:

 

            Sarah was born after the Saints had arrived in Salt Lake City to Henry Mower Jr. and Susan Strong Mower, after their joining the church with their separate families, meeting and marrying in Nauvoo, and coming across the plains. She was their third child, the second one to live. She was born 10 October, 1851. Her father was employed as a hotel manager and also sold provisions to California gold seekers on his own.

            For a time, they moved to Springville to be nearer his parents, but then came back to Union Fort near Salt Lake City because of Susan, her mother’s, failing health. Susan died 17 July 1856, leaving Sarah Elizabeth motherless at the age of five.

            Because of his daughter’s very young age, Henry decided it best to let his parents raise her. So she was raised by her aged grandparents, which meant she was left to do a lot on her own.

            She also went through the lean years when the grasshoppers and crickets devoured their crops, and she later told many an interesting story of their hard luck— and happy times.

            Sarah had to help herd cattle toward the mountains. One day an Indian came and picked her up and put her behind him on the back of the horse. She had a serviceberry stick which she beat him with until he finally turned her loose. She said he used to come back occasionally to see his dark-eyed girl. Sarah’s eyes were black and very sparkling.

            Though life was often hard, never once did she murmur or complain. She married Joseph Bonaparte Alvord, and afterwards, they lived in a log house, though they eventually lived in a brick house. In addition to his being a teamster, they had a farm with milk cows and grew crops.

            While she had the skills to be a hat maker, her main efforts were to her family. Her daughter, Amy, remembers her ironing fresh dresses with an old heavy flat iron heated on the coal stove, and then hanging them on wooden pegs in the corner of the old house.

            She worked in the Relief Society from early adulthood until her death. And when Amy married, she said, “You must join the Relief Society.”

            She was born on July 11, 1859, in Ogden, where she resided until about 1890, when she moved to Pleasant View, returning to Ogden in 1909, where she had since lived, except the last two and a half years passed at Kosmo, Utah.

DESERET NEWS

Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., UT—4 March 1874

 

            Died, at North Ogden, Utah, Feb. 18th, 1874, of old age, Thaddeus Alvord, aged 93 years.

            Deceased was born in the town of Bernardston, Hampshire county, Massachusetts, Oct. 28, 1781. When ten years of age he emigrated with his father’s family to the State of New York, and settled in Hamilton, Madison Co. In Jan, 1800, he married [1] Martha Bromley, and moved to near Lewiston, Niagara Co., New York. His wife died in 1809, leaving him with seven children, all girls.

            He served in the war of 1812. In 1814 he married [2] Sally Wellington. In 1822 he emigrated to Waterford, Oakland Co., Michigan. His wife died in 1824, leaving one daughter.

            In 1828, while on a visit in the State of New York, he married [3] Sally S. Briggs. In Sept., 1834, he received the Gospel, and was baptized by Elder Samuel Bent, the Prophet Joseph Smith being present at the time. He sold his property at Waterford, and in Sept., 1835, emigrated to Missouri, stopping a short time in Clay Co., and subsequently settled in Caldwell Co., and opened up a farm.

            He shared in the drivings and persecutions that the Saints suffered at the hands of mobs in the State of Missouri, and was among those who delivered up their arms to Gens. Clark and Lucas, and were left in a defenseless condition at the mercy of lawless mobs and wicked men in April, 1839.

            He left the State of Missouri and went to Nauvoo, Illinois, in 1846. He went up to winter quarters (now Florence) and remained there a short time, and then went down into the State of Missouri, to work for means to enable him to emigrate with the Saints to the Rocky Mountains. In 1849, he crossed the plains with his family, and arrived in Salt Lake Valley in Sept., 1849. He lived in the Old Fort, 6th Ward, some two years.

            On the 5th Feb., 1851, his wife died, leaving five sons and one daughter. He afterwards moved into the 19th Ward.

            In the Fall of 1853, he married [4] Betsey Cosset [sic: Betsie Corset on gravestones] and in June, 1866, he moved to North Ogden. On the 17th of May, 1873, he was ordained a Patriarch, under the hands of Prests. [Presidents] Young and Wells, and five of the Twelve Apostles.

            His mind was bright and active, and his memory was good. His general health also remained good up to within a short time of his death—and lived to see the fifth generation of his children—and when he passed away it seemed like he was only falling asleep. He remained firm in the faith of the Gospel during the 42 years of his experience and journeyings with the Church, and died in the full assurance of a glorious resurrection with the just.

            His ancestors came from Somersetshire, England, sometime about the year 1640, and settled in Connecticut in 1660. They moved to Northampton, Massachusetts, where they resided for several generations, performing an active part in the service of their country, up to the close of the revolutionary war. —Ogden Junction, Feb. 23.

In 1956 Thelma married Shirl T. Alvord, the love of her life. After raising her family, she worked at Mother’s Favorite Cookies and retired from Cream of Weber Dairy.

            Always living her life as it came, Thelma expected waltzing and Wendover sprinkled with tribulation. She looked forward to exercising with her condo friends and chit-chat and tea with nine grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and nine great-great grandchildren.

ZELMA THORPE ALVORD

            Zelma Thorpe Alvord, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away at home of natural causes, March 22, 2014, having been a shining example of womanhood who will be greatly missed by her family.

            Zelma was born in Malad, Idaho to Joseph and Lucy Thorpe. She was the eldest of five sisters, and was preceded in death by a son, Joseph, her husband, Lloyd I. Alvord, her parents, and sisters; Lucile, who died as a child, Evelyn Broschinsky and Helen Grimm.

            Zelma spent her summers on the family wheat farm in nearby Ireland Canyon. There they lived a "Little House on the Prairie" lifestyle on the self-sustainable farm with their crops, cattle and cousins next door, growing all their own food and making their clothes.

            Zelma was a granddaughter of the early pioneer settlers of the Malad area, many of whom knew Zelma as a child. Surnames of her immediate ancestors are Thorpe, Mason, Davis and Wight. Zelma inherited the values and attitudes of these people, which she carried throughout her life.

            Those who knew Zelma were uplifted by her personal qualities, including pleasantness, lack of worry, optimism and selflessness. She especially enjoyed being around her family, who will try to emulate her example.

            Zelma served in several LDS church callings among children and youth. She was a skilled seamstress, making beautiful dresses for her nieces, women's suits and even coats. She was noted for her skills as a homemaker, where organization and cleanliness were her hallmarks. She performed many acts of service.

            She is survived by her sister, Glenna Jo Cutler, son Lynn, daughter-in-law, Bonnie Malone Alvord, four grandchildren, David Alvord, James (Jim) Alvord, Katie (Alvord) Parry, and Robert M. Alvord. She has 12 great-grandchildren.

            Interment is at the Ben Lomond Cemetery in North Ogden, 526 E. 2850 N.
