Description fort of my room, when I returned, and falling into conversation with her about the loneliness of her position, her answer was that she was seldom alone, but that, as it happened, Mr. H.45 had been obliged to take his other wife to Salt Lake City for her health, and that the opportunity had been taken to send "their" elder children there to school for the winter, while they could enjoy the benefit of maternal supervision. The night was stinging cold; but we did not rise next day till the fires were blazing. The chimneys of Cove Creek Fort, I can attest, draw superbly; and the early cup of hot coffee, I found most of our party willing to admit, was more cheering to the spirit than "composition" cold. When we set out the sun was fully up, though it seemed to give no warmth; the sky was intensely blue, the air blue too, and sparkling with ice dust. The horses' hoofs rang merrily on the iron-bound ground.

Ira Nathaniel Hinckley (son of Nathaniel Hinckley and Lois Judd), was born October 30, 1828, Johnstown District, Canada. He came to Utah in 1850. His wife Eliza Evans, died while crossing the plains. He married two sisters, Adelaide C. and Angeline Wilcox Noble, and later took a third wife, Maggie Harley. He was called by Brig- ham Young to build Cove Fort in 1867. Hinckley was president of Millard Stake for twenty-six years, served as captain of a company to guard the United States mail, and was a pioneer to Arizona and New Mexico. He was also a policeman in Salt Lake City; mayor of Fillmore; and a blacksmith, farmer, and stockman. He died April IO, Igo+ in Provo, Utah. Whitney, Hzktory of Utah, 4:211-12. 80
