Historic Spring City, Utah
ForbesTraveler.com included Spring City in an October 13, 2009, article entitled
That Are Picture-perfect. The article includes a photo of the Orson
Hyde home and the old school. The author, Rob Baedeker, listed the central-Utah
town of Spring City, originally a Mormon settlement as a magnet for artists. The
article is on the Friends of Historic Spring City Web site: www.historicspringcity.org.

In 1787, William Allred
and his wife, Elizabeth Thrasher, took their family, and along with a few
friends, left North Carolina in search of new lands. This family traveled
for about 64 years, stopping along the way in a variety of states such as South
Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois and Iowa. Along the
way, some married, some were born, some died, and some stayed. Their
final destination was the brand new US Territory named Utah.
Today thousands of their descendants still live in Utah, while many more have
scattered all over the world. This page is dedicated to providing
information on this great branch of the Allred family. We invite you
to take a long, leisurely look around. The variety of family histories
provide a look into their pioneer lives and colorful stories about their travels
across the country.
If you are looking for information about your Utah ancestor, but don't find
it here, please let me know. If it's available, I'll be glad to share it
with you. If you have information, photos, or documents that you would
like to share with us, please contact me. We are always excited to hear
from our cousins! This is an ever-changing, ever growing web page, so
check back often.
As you wander around this web site, you'll notice a lot of people had the
same names. Many, many named Thomas, James, Isaac, William - it can get
very confusing! To help you keep them all straight, I have included links
to each person's page on the Allred Family
Roster. By clicking on the links, you can see how each person fits on
our vast family tree.
