The Story of Ida Hunt Udall, Plural WifeBook - 1992
Ida Frances Hunt Udall (1858-1915) was born in Hamilton's Fort, Utah to John and Lois Barnes Pratt Hunt. She spent the first few years of her life in San Bernardino, California and then moved with her family to Beaver, Utah where she grew into young womanhood. In 1877 she moved with her parents to New Mexico where she lived off and on for several years. In 1882 Ida married Bishop David King Udall (1851-1938) of St. John's, Arizona as his plural wife. Her life was difficult as a plural wife as she had to live on the Mormon "underground" from the law and John eventually spent time in prison for unlawful cohabitation. Between 1905 and 1910 Ida suffered several strokes and was in very poor health for the remainder of her life. She and David were the perents of six children. Descendants live throughout the western United States.
