Alonzo and Rose Hinckley

BYA HS Class of 1892. Alonzo Hinckley appears in a photograph held by the BYU Archives of "the first class to graduate from the new Academy Building, 1892." (UAP 2 Folder 037) ~ ~ ~ ~ A. Alonzo Hinckley was ordained an apostle on October 11, 1934, by President Heber J. Grant, at age 64. ~ ~ ~ ~ A. Alonzo Hinckley was a merchant, educator, farmer, stock-raiser, LDS stake president for 27 years, legislator, civic official, missionary and mission president. Alonzo Hinckley, president of the California mission, was an able addition to the Council of the Twelve Apostles. His Church activities, his pioneering endeavors and livestock raising brought him recognition througout the west. He was a man of humble and kindly disposition, of sharp intellect, and rare sense of humor. As president of the Millard and Deseret stakes for a total of 27 years, and as president of the California mission, he won a host of followers and associates who wished him happiness and joy in the new position to which he was called. He was born on April 23, 1870, at Cove Fort, Utah. He was a son of Ira Nathaniel Hinckley and Angeline Noble Hinckley, New Englanders who helped pioneer Utah. His ancestry traced back to the early settlers of the American continent, who came to the Atlantic seaboard in 1635. His father was a prominent pioneer and patriot, and his mother was one of the first school teachers in Salt Lake City, having taught in the old First ward, and among her pupils was the mother of Maud Adams, world famed actress. In his boyhood he worked on his father's farm, together with his brothers, one of whom is President Bryant S. Hinckley of Liberty stake. As a boy, at one time, he was herding horses, to keep them off the haylands, and after working for some hours, stopped to rest. Having no place to which he could tie his horse, he looped a line from the horse to his own foot, and lay down to rest. The horse became frightened, and ran away, pulling the boy through brush and rocks, an experience which nearly cost him his life. Reared at Fillmore, his father and mother came to Salt Lake in 1850, but had not met each other at this time. Subsequently, however, Brigham Young called the father to Cove Creek to supervise the building of the fort there. This was in 1867. Three years later, this new apostle was born. His early life was spent in Cove Fort and Fillmore, Millard county, his father having moved to Fillmore when appointed president of Millard Stake in 1877. When but a lad of 14 years, he went to work for his brother-in-law, Lafayette Holbrook, in Frisco, a typical mining town of Beaver county. There he gained a basic training in merchandising which led to the establishment of the Hinckley Co-op, in Hinckley, Utah. As founder of this institution, the name of A. A. Hinckley first became prominent. A graduate of the Fillmore grammar school and an 1892 graduate of Brigham Young Academy high school in Provo, Elder Hinckley taught school for a number of years in Deseret, Millard County. It is interesting that the town of Hinckley, noted as a center of alfalfa seed raising, was named in honor of his father, Ira N. Hinckley. As a dairyman, Elder Hinckley aided his father and carried on his stock-raising interests after his death. At the time he was named an apostle, he owned a dairy farm in Salt Lake County. He also became known in Millard as a successful alfalfa seed grower. He operated and owned three large farms in that county, one in Hinckley, one in Delta, and one in Lyndyll. In 1892 he married Rose May Robison, BYA Class of 1892~Honorary, and lived in Deseret one year before moving to Hinckley, where he made his home. Five years after his marriage he was called to fill a mission to the Netherlands, returning in 1900. Prominent in Church and civic circles in Millard County, he was chosen in 1902 to succeed his father as president of Millard Stake, and he conducted the affairs of this office until the Stake grew to such an extent that it became advisable to divide it, and make two stakes. In 1912 this division was accomplished. The Millard and Deseret stakes were organized, and he became president of the latter one. He served in this position until 1929, at which time he was honorably released after more than 27 years continuous service as a stake president. He then removed to Salt Lake City, making his home on Wall Street, but shortly after coming here he was called to succeed President Joseph W. McMurrin as head of the California mission, with headquarters in Los Angeles. Elder Hinckley served two terms in the legislature representing Millard County, and when Governor Charles R. Mabey was elected he appointed him as State Commissioner of Agriculture. He was retained in this position for some months after the election of Governor George H. Dern. A father of 14 children, 12 of whom were living when he became an apostle, his family was an unusual one. His eldest son, Harold Hinckley, was a practicing physician in Corcoran, California, having graduated from the University of Utah and University of Chicago medical schools, and having fulfilled a mission to New Zealand. Rulon T. Hinckley, the second eldest son, was a graduate of Brigham Young University, and he fulfilled a mission to Germany and returned to teach seminary at Hinckley High School. Arza, the youngest son, served in the Northwestern States mission. Of the daughters, Afton Hinckley Badger of held a master's degree in domestic arts from Brigham Young University. The other daughters, Mabel, Suzanne, Angelina, Ethel, Mary, Nelly, Beulah and Zina all received high school diplomas by the time their father became a member of the Council of the Twelve. Alonzo Hinckley bore a striking resemblance in physical appearance to the late President Anthony W. Ivins, but his career also paralleled that of that distinguished leader in several ways. Both were more or less self-made; both were ardent spreaders of the gospel as missionaries and mission presidents; both were stake presidents, one as the first citizen of St. George Stake, the other as the first citizen of Millard Stake; both led well-balanced lives with a hand in an amazing number of business, economic and industrial ventures; both were outdoor men. [Source: Ancestry, LDS Family History Suite 2, LDS Vital Records Library, Infobases, 1998, Obituary Scrapbook, p. 28] ~ ~ ~ ~ Elder A. Alonzo Hinckley died on December 22, 1936 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Interment, Salt Lake City Cemetery.

Holdaway, John Shadrack

Holdaway, John Shadrack
Pleasant Grove, Utah US

John and Margaret Holdaway

Class of 1892? John Shadrack Holdaway - A history written by his daughter, Mrs. Edna Holdaway Newman, now deceased: John Shadrack Holdaway was born March 23, 1874 at Mammoth, Utah, where his father worked in the mines. He was the son of John Madison and Jane Gillespie Holdaway. His grandfather Shedrick was one of the early pioneers and builders of Utah valley. He built the road up the South Fork of Provo Canyon where he had a sammill; he brought the first carding machinery into Provo; he, with the help of his brother David, built the first threshing machine in Utah and he laid out a canal across Provo Bench without the aid of any instruments and he also took up a large tract of land on the east shore of Utah Lake and farmed it. He married Lucinda Haws in Salt Lake City on 24 Dec. 1848, and she, too, did her part to pioneer this valley. She studied herb doctoring in Illinois before coming to Utah, so was called upon to doctor the sick, act as mid-wife and wrote many poems as a tribute to friends and loved ones, and especially to those bereaved. John's grandmother, Jane Gillespie, came from Sootland with her father and six brothers, her mother having passed away. She was a very lonely and sad little girl as her father and brothers went to work in the mines each day. She said she cried much of the time because she missed her mother so very much. One day she climbed up the side of the mountain, sat on a rock, and looking over the bleak land, prayed that she might go back to Scotland. She testified that she saw her mother, and her mother told her to stop grieving, and she said a great peace came over her. John Madison Holdaway and Jane Gillespie were married Dec. 5, 1870. John Madison was a staunch and diligent member of the Church and filled a mission for the Church after his family was raised. He was particularly interested in genealogy of the family. He was watermaster in Provo for a number of years. John Madison and Jane Gillespie Holdaway moved to Provo, Utah, and here their son, John Shadrack attended Brigham Young Academy. It was here that the romance between John S. and his future wife began. Margaret Adamson lived in Pleasant Grove and transportation was a problem in those days, so often John walked the approximately ten miles to see Maggie, and sometimes he rode a bicycle. John Shadrack Holdaway and Margaret Janette Adamson were married Dec. 4, 1895 in the Salt Lake Temple. They settled in Pleasant Grove and John worked in the flour mill for his father-in-law. After the mill was sold John did construction work. He also worked on the flume that takes water out of Provo Canyon; also on the Pleasant Grove City water works where he would walk from home up over Little Mountain to the foot of Mt. Timpanogos, where water was piped down the mountain. After the day's work was done, he, with others, would walk home until later a small track railroad took them up and down the Little Mountain. The following is quoted from the history written of him by his daughter, Edna Holdaway Newman, now deceased: "He also worked on the railroad and the mines in Mammoth. He actually was a carpenter by trade and liked that work better than milling. But because mining and construction work took him away from his family so much of the time, he took a milling job at McCammon, Idaho. The family lived there for one summer; then he came back and worked at the flour mill In Pleasant Grove and later at the Lehi Roller Mill, where, for many years, he traveled back and forth to work. He took training in chemistry of grains and developed the Turkey Red flour from the hard wheat. He also developed the Whole Wheat which has such popularity, but because he cared little for honor or public applause, he let the mills take the credit. He was also a carpenter and did most of the work on his own home. Everything he undertook to do, he did well and his services were always in demand so that as a family we were always taken care of. His love for his family, as all of them can testify, was our greatest joy. We would never care to go with anyone else if we could go an a trip or do something interesting with father and mother. Our trips were precious memories. The following is taken from a brief sketch of John's life by his son-in-law, Frank B. Nomans: "Mr. Holdaway has cared little for honor or public applause, but his quiet, unassuming nature, his sound judgment and integrity of character has won for him the sincere respect and admiration of all who knew him. He was one of the early school board members of Pleasant Grove. He served as City Councilman several times. "He enjoyed his Church positions, serving as Superintendent of the Sunday School, second counselor to Bishop M. S. Christiansen of the Third Ward, Chairman of the Building Committee for the Third Ward Church, Assistant to the Stake High Priest Presidency and a member of the Ward Quorum at death. "While he has always enjoyed his church and community activities, his hobby was his family. He loved to plan trips and outings for his children and grandchildren, and he got a full share of enjoyment out of such recreation. "He enjoyed living and seeing other people live, He was always reluctant to condemn; he was patient and generous always. I have been married (to his daughter) nearly 23 years and in that time we have had no cross words between us. I am sure the major reason was on his part. A friend, Niels Fugal, said that John Holdaway, to his best knowledge, did not have an enemy in the world. He wasn't that type of individual. In his public position as City Councilman for four years, he was interested in the affairs of the people and his judgment was wise, judicious and did the things that were for the betterment of all....President Wilford Warnick (Stake President) paid this tribute to him, "Brother Holdaway has the confidence of the people. They have called him to serve in various capacities and he has always served with honor. He has been a pillar of strength to the Church. He was, indeed, a man among many; a man of energy; a man of ability; and a man of great faith, a man willing to serve." Bishop Christiansen said,I never saw Brother Holdaway do a discreditable thing and I know him well'." John Shadrack Holdaway died May 14. 1944 in Pleasant Grove, Utah, and his beloved wife passed away May 3, 1951.
