Samuel Moore Hiatt and Mary Eleanor Taylor

Samuel Moore Hiatt
Parents Reuben Hiatt and Mary Stout
Born 19 Jan 1833 Mooreville, Morgan, Indiana
Married 1) Emeline Pinkley in Texas
Children:  died at birth as did Emeline
2) Mary Eleanor Taylor 19 Jan 1860 Plain City, Weber, Utah
Died 30 Dec 1908 Hermiston, Umatilla, Oregon
Buried Hillcrest Cemetery, LeGrande, Union, Oregon
Story from findagrave:
After his mother's death, he went to Texas with his brothers, Stephen, Charles & Rueben. There he was married to Emeline Pinkley who died after childbirth, as did the child. Sam joined a group who were headed to the California Gold Fields, while on their way they stopped in Salt Lake (City). While there Sam looked for his brother, Elihu. As he came into to town on his horse "Billey" with a pistol on each hip, riding down the center of the street, he was hailed by a stranger who said, "Brother Hiatt, you are looking for your brother, Elihu. He lives in Farmington." Sam was given directions. He went to visit his brother. He didn't care for the men he was traveling with, so decided to stay with his brother, although he wasn't going to become a Mormon! In the Spring of 1859 he was baptized. From Farmington he went to teach school at Slaterville. It was here that he met his future wife, Mary Eleanor Taylor. They lived in Utah for awhile, to Idaho, to Hermiston, OR. This short bio by his g-granddaughter, from info by his granddaughter, Rhoda Huff.

*Mary Eleanor Taylor
Parents John Taylor and Eleanor Burkett
Note: to see her with her parents and sibs click here: http://upperlevelgen.blogspot.com/search?q=burkett
Born 12 Jun 1843 Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois
Died 6 Jan 1941 Freewater, Umatilla, Oregon
Buried 9 Jun 1941 LaGrande, Union, Oregon
Here is a story I found about her that I cut and pasted (my notes are in brighter red):
Mary Eleanor was responsible for the care of her twin baby brothers (Note:  there was one of each gender in both sets of twins/siblings.  The first set was older than Mary Eleanor and one of the older set of twins (Eleanor) died, so that leaves the second set of twins who were younger (William and Lucinda).  Mary would have been about nine years old when the twins were born) as they crossed the plains.  They camped with other small companies at night. While enroute, an Indian was attempting to steal one of the twins confronted Eleanor. She grabbed up a butcher knife (yes, even a nine-year old could do this), and frightened the Indian away. She walked all the way from Nauvoo to Salt Lake Valley, except when crossing streams.(The family was in Texas, then Oklahoma, and then to Utah - she couldn't have walked all the way from Nauvoo unless they backtracked from Oklahoma or Texas to Illinois and then came west - very unlikely)  She and her sister had many opportunities to marry into a polygamy family. They refused them all. After each proposal they climbed upon the log house and cut a notch in a ridge pole. (This sounds more like a family legend than truth, anyone know what really happened?) 

How Samuel met Mary:
After his mother's death, Samuel went to Texas with his brothers, Stephen, Charles & Reuben  There he was married to Emeline Pinkley who died after childbirth, as did the child. Sam joined a group who were headed to the California Gold Fields, while on their way they stopped in Salt Lake (City). While there Sam looked for his brother, Elihu. As he came into to town on his horse "Billey" with a pistol on each hip, riding down the center of the street, he was hailed by a stranger who said, "Brother Hiatt, you are looking for your brother, Elihu. He lives in Farmington." Sam was given directions. He went to visit his brother. He didn't care for the men he was traveling with, so decided to stay with his brother, although he wasn't going to become a Mormon! In the Spring of 1859 he was baptized. From Farmington he went to teach school at Slaterville. It was here that he met his future wife, Mary Eleanor Taylor. They lived in Utah for awhile, to Idaho, then to Hermiston, Oregon.

From findagrave:


She was the mother of 10 children: Roy, Delbert, Mabel, Ethel, Eva, Mae, Ada, Fernie, Blanche, Sadie (dec'd aged 3 months, 1914). Grandma was raised in Utah. After her marriage to Tom, they moved to Idaho, Washington, Alberta Canada, and in the Spring of 1915 back to the USA. They lived in Enterprise, OR until the Spring of 1916 when they moved to Milton (-Freewater, now), OR. Grandpa died in 1933. After his death she continued to live in their home with her younger children. In 1950 Blanche (my Mom) married Sims Clark and he moved in with them, so Mom could care for her mother. Grandma had many strokes that eventually paralized her throat so she could not swallow. Mom said the only thing she could keep down was tea. Grandma died when I was about 6, so my memories of her are only from my childhood. She loved chocolate peanut clusters and candy orange slices. They were always available. Grandma would have my Mom call me in from playing, so she could see for herself that I was 'safe'. Sometimes she would give my cousin, Stan, and I some money. He'd get 50 cents (he was older) and I'd get a quarter! I know I was a bit special to Grandma because I was her youngest and last grandchild. But, she loved all her grandchildren and great(s) grandchildren. [Headstones, neither have the correct death year!]



She died as you can see the last of December and the first stone was placed in Jan of the following year. I don't know if the family noticed right away or not, I didn't (I was only 6ish though). In the 1970's her surviving children decided they need to get new stones for their parents and older siblings in the cemetery. Also the aim was to correct the death date. They remembered it was off a year - and so changed it - but the wrong direction.

Died 9 Apr 1973 Antioch, Contra Costa, California
Buried Riverview Cemetery, Boardman, Morrow, Oregon
From findagrave "Bio by Betty":
Aunt Lou was the 12th child of 14 born to Samuel Moore & Mary Eleanor (Taylor) Hiatt. 30 May 1900 she married Earl William Keyes (div). They were the parents of Vaughnan, Delilah (dec’d infancy), Wahnona and a son who died in infancy. 
Her second marriage was toRoyal Hillard Rands. They were the parents of Royal Bodine & Donna. Aunt Lou was a wonderful aunt, friend and buddy. She was full of fun and loved to laugh. She made
all who associated with her feel important and needed. There are many stories that could be told of her and her life. She loved a good joke or story and wasn’t above telling some on herself. One that I recall began early one Sunday morning when she went out to do her farm chores. Afterwards she came into the house and dressed to go to church. Just before leaving, she remembered something she needed to do out in the barn before she left, so just slipped out of her church going shoes and put on her barnyard shoes. She finished her chore and came back into the house to get her things for Sunday School. She thought she looked pretty cute and was looking forward to leading the congregation in singing. She arrived at church and visited with her friends before the meeting began, then took her seat on the stand near the piano. The Bishop greeted everyone and announced the opening hymn. Aunt Lou, got up to lead and was busy directing the congregation, when she happened to look down at her feet…she had her barnyard shoes on! She was embarrassed, but it wasn’t long before she saw the ‘funny’ in it and we all had a good laugh….I’m still laughing as I write this.
Another time, my parents and I were going on a vacation to the coast and on our way stopped by to visit with Aunt Lou and Uncle Royal. Uncle Royal wasn’t home though, so we visited with Aunt Lou. Dad jokingly, said, “You should come and go with us.” She thought about it moment or two and replied, “Well, I think I will. I’ll just leave Royal a note.” And off to the coast she went.
