NOTES: David King Udall Sr. married Eliza Luella Stewart, daughter of Le vi Stewart and Margery Wilkerson. David's sister, Mary Ann Udall marrie d William Thomas Stewart a sister of Eliza Luella Stewart, daughter of Le vi Stewart and Margery Wilkerson.

NOTES:David King Udall (1851-1938) and Ida Hunt Udall (1858-1915) Among t he last generation of Mormons to live in plural marriage, David King an d Ida Hunt Udall suffered the persecutions and the personal anxieties tha t ultimately led their church to abandon this doctrine.
David King Udall was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1851 to English immi grant Mormon parents, who moved to Utah with young David the next year. I da Hunt was born in the back of a covered wagon in 1858 in Hamilton's For t, Utah, as her family journeyed back from California to help defend th e church in the "Mormon War." Ida's grandparents had converted to Mormoni sm as young adults, and her parents had been missionaries in several Paci fic islands.
As a young man, David Udall rose quickly to a leadership position in th e Mormon church. Shortly after his first marriage, to Eliza "Ella" Stewar t in 1875, he was sent to England for two years as a missionary. In 1877 , he returned to Ella and Utah and was soon ordained a high priest. In 18 80, only twenty-nine years old, he was appointed Bishop of Eastern Arizon a's St. Johns Ward where he soon found himself supervising not only purel y religious functions, but also the construction of irrigation ditches , a schoolhouse and several mills. Then, in 1882, despite increasing pers ecution of the practice, he entered plural marriag with Ida Hunt, the dau ghter of the Bishop of an adjoining Ward who had moved to Arizona the yea r before.
Many years later, David King Udall recalled this second marriage as a spi ritual trial for himself and his two wives. All three had been raised i n polygamous families and approached their union with happy memories of t hat experience as well as deep religious convictions. Yet all three fel t emotional turmoil at taking this step. Asked by Ida to confirm her appr oval of the marriage, Ella could only say, "If it is the Lord's will I a m perfectly willing to try to endure it." And David, riding to ask Ida' s parents for their consent, remembered pausing at a fork in the road: On e road led to Snowflake where Ida was awaiting me; the other road led t o St. John's -- to my home, my wife and baby. For a little time my mind w as undecided and my soul in torment. I dismounted and on my knees praye d fervently that I might be guided aright. A calm assurance came over m e and I knew it was my duty and privilege to enter into plural marriage . I whipped up my horse and rode to Snowflake as fast as the darkness wou ld permit. From that day to this I have felt that in accepting plural mar riage we have fulfilled the plan of Heaven for me and mine. It was the wi ll of God to us. Following his marriage to Ida Hunt, David Udall's famil y was placed under additional stress by reactions among their predominant ly Hispanic and Catholic neighbors, who resented the Mormons at St. John' s as newcomers occupying land that was not rightfully theirs. In 1884 , a confrontation with some locals over the ownership of a city lot nearl y erupted into violence, and David, along with nine other Mormons, were a rrested for unlawful assembly. All were eventually acquitted, but later t hat year David was charged with perjury for testimony he had given in a f ellow Mormon's land claim. This time he was convicted and sent to priso n in Michigan.
At nearly the same time, David and six other Mormons of St. John's Ward w ere indicted on federal charges of polygamy. By law, Ida could be force d to testify against her husband, and to avoid this she fled to Utah to l ive in the Mormon underground. For more than two years she traveled fro m one hiding place to the next, often using assumed names, and during thi s time gave birth to her and David's first child. The couple were finall y reunited in 1887, after a pardon from President Grover Cleveland cleare d David of perjury charges in 1885 and his prosecution for polygamy was d ropped in 1886.
The rest of the Udalls' life together was hard if less dramatic. Time di d not ease the tensions between Ida, Ella and their children, and the tw o women were further tested by the frequent economic troubles of their mu tual husband. Ida died in 1910, following a series of strokes that bega n in 1905. David and Ella lived on to celebrate a golden wedding annivers ary in 1925 and died within a year of each other, Ella in 1937, David i n 1938.
David Udall's eleven children who survived childhood included two state s upreme court justices and a mayor of Phoenix. Stewart Udall, Arizona Cong ressman and 1961-1969 Secretary of Interior, and his brother Morris Udall , also an Arizona Congressmen, were two of David Udall's many grandchildr en.
