Biographical NoteReturn to Top

James Henry Linford (1536-1925) and Zillah Crockett Linford (1839-1913) were the maternal grandparents of Luella Reddish Lear. Born in Gravely, Cambridgeshire, England, James Linford immigrated to the United States in 1861 after his conversion to the LDS church and serving nine years as a missionary in his homeland. He was married to Zillah Crockett Linford, also a convert and immigrant from Lincolnshire, England, in 1862. They lived in Centerville and Kaysville, Utah. In Kaysville James Linford served as mayor, trustee of the Eighth School District, justice of the peace, city councilman, and supervisor of streets. As a member of the LDS church, he was called to be the patriarch of the North Davis Stake in 1903. James and Zillah Linford were the parents of seven children: James Henry Linford, Jr. (1863-1941), Sarah Marie Linford Criddle (1865-1944), John George Linford (1870-1917), Zilla Elizabeth Linford Reddish (1872-1958), Mary Hannah Linford Layton (1875-1959), Maud Estella Linford Blood (1877-1940), and Edward Lorenzo Linford (1880-1948).

Frederick Herbert Reddish (1866-1936) and Zillah Linford Reddish (1872-1959) were the parents of Luella Reddish Lear. Frederick Reddish was born in England and emigrated to the United States (to Layton, Utah) at age 13. Zilla Linford was born in Kaysville, and married Frederick Reddish in 1890. The couple later moved to Lund, Idaho where Frederick served as the bishop of the Lund LDS ward. The couple had eight children: Frederick Reddish (1891- ), Zillah Luella Reddish Lear (1894-1978), Leo Linford Reddish, (1897-1983), Mabel Eliza Redish Schenk (1899-1989), Edna Manita Reddish (1901-1964), Lola Estella Reddish (1904-1904), Arnold Henry Reddish (1907-1948), and Hazel Maria Reddish Waltington (1910-1981).

James Hoopes Bird (1872-1925) and Mary Ellen Baugh Bird (1872-1940) were both born in Cache Valley, Utah, and spent most of their lives in Mendon. Mary Ellen Baugh was married to William Lear (or Lea) in 1892 and had one son, Elmer Baugh Lear (1892-1973). They divorced in 1900 and a year later Mary Ellen Baugh remarried James H. Bird, an employee of the railroad. The couple had four children: William Delbert Bird (1902-1965), Mary Ann Bird Schiffman (1905-1990), Sarah Ann Bird Parker (1905- 1989), and Leva Bird Thornton (1909- ).

Mary Ann Anderson Baugh (1842-1924) was the mother of Mary Ellen Baugh Bird. Born Christina Marie Togur (or Thygaarsen), she immigrated to the United States with her mother, brother, and Anderson stepfamily from Denmark in 1854 and married Briar Baugh (1833-1907) in 1858 in Cedar City, Utah.
