Eli Taylor 1862-1931 Maria Telford 1869-1925



This picture is of the Hepworth's house in Bountiful, Utah.
Back row LtoR: Alma Hepworth, Eli Taylor, his wife Maria Telford holding their son Witt, Unknown, Melina Smith Taylor Hepworth, James Hepworth, Unknown for the rest of the back row.

Front Row LtoR: Unknown, Lurena Taylor, George Taylor, Unknown. The Unknowns in the picture are thought to be Hepworths. It is likely they are the half brothers and sisters to Eli, who was raised by James. However, I have no confirmation of this. I do know that Lurena's son (Eli) once purchased this house and then sold it in 1976. If anyone knows who the unknown Hepworth's are in the picture, I'd love to hear it!


Eli Taylor
Born 27 Dec 1862 Birmingham, Warwick, England
Parents: William Taylor and Melina Smith
Note: Eli was raised by James Hepworth, his stepfather.  Eli was the only one of four boys Melina gave birth to in England that survived to adulthood (see her story on this blog under Melina Smith/William Taylor). She met and married James Hepworth and had several more children with him.
Immigrated from England to Utah 1871 according to the 1900 Census
Married Maria Telford 23 Dec 1889 Bountiful, Davis, Utah
Died 20 Jul 1931 Bountiful, Davis, Utah
Note: his death certificate is not available online at this time. I have made a request that Utah archives link the image to the name, but they claim it is missing. 
Buried 23 Jul 1931 Bountiful Cemetery, Bountiful, Davis, Utah
