Rex was the fourth of five children born to Alexander Leatham and his wife, Margaret Allen. His siblings were Peter Allen (born 18 July 1878 - died 16 October 1950), Robert Allen (born 27 March 1880 - died 31 March 1972), James Allen Leatham (born 27 March 1882 - died 24 February 1948), and Margaret Allen (born 15 January 1886 - died 24 January 1961).

Rex's grandfather, Robert Letham (1801-1860), married Janet Urquhart in 1822, and they lived in Barony Parish, Glasgow County, Scotland. They had twelve children (two of whom died as children). Nine of the surviving children became Mormon converts, and eight of these immigrated to Utah on various occasions between 1849 and 1971. Of the two who stayed in Scotland (a brother and sister), one was a Mormon convert. Descendants in Utah changed the spelling of the surname to Leatham, and lived in Utah, Idaho, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon and elsewhere.

Rex married Julia May Berry on 11 October 1904 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah.

Rex registered for the WWI Draft on 12 September 1918 in Rexburg, Madison County, Idaho. He gave his permanent home address as Rexburg, Madison County, Utah. He was 34 years old, and he listed his current occupation as being a self-employed. His nearest relative was Julia May Leatham of Rexburg, Madison County, Utah. He was described as being of medium height and medium build with brown eyes and brown hair. No physical deformities were listed.
