Reuben & Elzadie Ford Allred
Reuben Warren Allred was eighteen years old when he married Elzadie Emiline Ford. Four days after their marriage, both joined the Mormon Battalion. Elzadie was allowed to go along with her new husband, as two women were with each Company, to do laundry work for the men. At Santa Fe. New Mexico. Elzadie had to turn back toward Salt Lake City, while Reuben continued on toward California. After the Battalion was disbanded. Reuben joined his wife in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1879 the Allred's moved to Pima, Arizona with their family of three children, John Warren, Mary Lilly and Rosebelle. Although the Indians were at times troublesome, and the place had no near neighbors. Reuben moved about seven miles west of Pima, to a place called Buttermilk Point. This was near Matthewsville.
The Allreds found it profitable to milk cows, make butter and cheese, to sell to the soldiers at Ft. Thomas. The Freighters, going from Bowie to Globe, always looked forward to stopping at the Allred Farm for a cool glass of buttermilk. After five years, the Allreds moved back to Pima buying the Henry Dall farm, as Henry Dall wished to return to Utah. This was near the Hilda Taylor home.
a story about him that his granddaughter (Clara Allred Larson) wrote in her Life Story:
It seemed that our home was always a stopping place for our out of town relatives and friends, often someone coming to stay over night or for a week or so. Grandpa Allred made his home with us for most of his life. He was a kind and good man. It seemed to me he was always dressed up real neat and clean. Grandma Allred died before Mother and
Father were married. Grandpa was 89 years old when he died.
