Shauna. I have found quite a bit of
circumstantial evidence that Hyrum is son of William and Mary.
Both William and Mary are buried in the Provo
in Provo, Utah, USA.
William died 29 Mar 1878. Mary died 2 Jul 1886. I have found a
Mrs Chittenden and son, Hyrom and daughter Veni in the 1880 Utah Census. By 1880 William
was dead so it stands to reason that Mary would be living with her youngest
son. By the way, does the name Veni ring a bell
with you?. What could it be short for?. I don’t know if you’ve received Hyrum’s
obituary “Died at home of his son, Glen, 1167 Cement Street. Usual
residence was 525 Jefferson St,
Services were held at Maguire Mortuary in Silverton under auspices of Church of Christ, of which he was a
member. He was shipped to Blackfoot, Idaho (his wife, Rozina
was buried in Blackfoot) body was accompanied by sons Glen and Hyrum Jr., and
daughter Myrtle Fife (I believe this woman’s name is Mabel) of
Silverton. Survivors were 4 sons: Hyrum Jr,
and Glenn in Silverton, Roy in British Columbia, Bert (Could this son be
named William?) in Pocatello, Idaho: and 5 daughters, Myrtle Fife, in
Silverton, Louise Fanster (Foster) in British
Columbia, Mary Chittenden and Alice Caculd in Salt
Lake City, Ella Hill in Pocatello, Idaho. Also a sister (not
named) (Louise who married Abraham Wilde) in Alberta,
Hyrum also spent time in Canada.
From the 1906 Canadian Census his family is listed as such:-
HIRAM. Head. Orozina. Wife Louisa. Daughter, Hiram. Son,
Glen. Son, Roy. Son, Mary.
Daughter, Mary. Daughter,
Alice. It says they all came to Canada in 1904.
