Alonzo was born in the fort. Here they became a large and prominent family in the area. The Fort has recently been returned to the Church and restored as a tourist attraction.
He married Rose May Robison in 1892 in the Manti Temple and the couple had fourteen children.
Elder Hinckley served as a Stake President before he was ordained an Apostle by President Heber J. Grant, he served there but a scant two years when he died in office.
