Edmund Eldredge

Contributor: HonestAbe Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

Told in conversation from Frank Rhead Allen (KWCW-BVK) to Thomas F. Alexander (KWHG-XXF). Uncle Edmund was a big man. He had a "horse pistol" (a large hand gun with a long barrel) that Frank Stewart Allen (KWCW-BVP) could hardly hold with an extended arm. Frank and Inez (KWCW-BV5) Allen moved into Uncle Edmund's Coalville house to help care for him. I believe it was 1936 when Frank finished his master's degree at University of Utah. Some time, not sure when, Edmund's house served as a makeshift jail. A prisoner was kept in the basement while he was tried. He was found guilty of some grievous deed and sentenced to be executed. There was no local police or sheriff. Some of the town's men took the man up in the hills and executed and buried him. Afterwards there was very little conversation about it. Uncle Edmund would not talk about it.

Uncle Edmund and Echo Canyon

Told to Thomas F. Alexander (KWHG-XXF) by family members such as Leila Alexander (9KWC2-H6F), Frank Stewart Allen (KWCW-BVP), David Rhead Allen (KWCC-PTV), and Frank Rhead Allen (KWCW-BV5). Uncle Edmund was a part of the Echo Canyon Welcoming party that greeted Newly appointed Governor Alfred Cumming. During the "Utah War" Alfred Cunning had been appointed to be the territorial governor of the Utah Territory. He was on his way to SLC with 2500 US Army troops under the command of Albert Sydney Johnson as part of the "Utah Exposition." The troops were delayed in the area of Fort Bridger and encamped for the winter. They seem to have had difficulty with the prairie grass being burned before them as they approached and they had few provisions with which to feed and supply themselves. Feed for stock was not really much of a problem since most of their horses and cattle had been stampeded and run off by Lot Smith and his men. The mounted cavalry under Col Johnson's command were on foot, their horses being run off. Johnson created the "Jackass Calvary" of 100 men mounted on mules which were largely ineffective in thwarting Smith's efforts. Governor Cumming decided to proceed without escort to SLC. As he approached through Echo Canyon he was stopped by numerous check points along the way. Uncle Edmund was part of the subterfuge which convinced Cumming that there were a large number of men along the canyon's rim. Edmund was part of the group who would light bonfires and leap-frog ahead to give the illusion that thousands of men were at the top of the canyon. By the way, Cumming later complained bitterly that he had been fooled in such a way. Way to go Uncle Edmund.
