Myron Whiteley, whose home and ranch are situated eleven miles west of Emmett on the Emmett and New Plymouth road, became owner of this property in the spring of 1918, acquiring one hundred and twenty-seven acres which he is now carefully cultivating and improving. Previous to this time he had lived upon a ranch of his own near Burley, Idaho, for two years, but sold his forty acre tract there and purchased his present ranch in Gem county. He had removed to Idaho in June, 1915, from Utah, having previously lived near Provo. Mr. Whiteley was born at Fountain Green, Sanpete county, Utah, July 31, 1886, a son of Joseph E. and Alice M. (Adams) Whiteley, the former of whom died of influenza in December, 1918, while the latter is now living in Lindon, Utah. Both were born in that state, of Mormon parentage. Joseph E. Whiteley's parents removed to Utah from England, coming to the new world as Mormon converts.

Myron Whiteley was reared upon a farm in his native state and has devoted his entire life to agricultural pursuits. He was married in the temple at Salt Lake City, November 2, 1910, to Kate Martha Warwood, who was born at Nephi, Juab county, Utah, August 1, 1888, a daughter of John and Ellen Ann (Taylor) Warwood, both of whom have passed away. Her father was a native of England and came to Utah after embracing the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Both Mr. Whiteley and his wife attended the Brigham Young Preparatory School at Provo and he was also a student in the commercial department of the Brigham Young University. After their marriage they lived for a time in the vicinity of Provo and then came to Idaho, settling first in Cassia county, where they remained for a year, and then took up their abode near Burley, where they lived for two years before coming to Gem county in 1918. They have become the parents of five children: Alvah Myron, who was born August 3, 1911; Helen Viola, born March 31, 1914; Floyd Warwood, November 3, 1915: Thelma, January 12, 1918: and Alice Marie, August 24, 1919.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Whiteley are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and he is now clerk of Bramwell ward, having served in this position since December, 1918. He is interested in all that pertains to the growth of the church and the extension of its influence, and his aid and support are also given to all those forces which make for the betterment of the community along material, social and civic lines.
