      2. Censuses:
      1870 US: Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah, p. 8, 1 Aug 1870, family 56 (note Sarah Isabelle, Charles' 2 year old child from his deceased first wife is not with the family):
      Charles Hales, 21, Carpenter, $100, $100, Iowa.
      Elizabeth, 20, keeping house, UT.
      (Note that Elizabeth's father, Samuel Thompson, age 58, with his wife Druzilla, lives two houses away. He notes his birth in NY.)

      1880 US: Census shows Charles Henry Hales in two places with each of his two families and as probably polygamous:
      A. Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah, NA film T9-1338, p. 188B, next door to Elizabeth's parents Saml. and Druzilla Thompson:
      Charles Henry Hales, carpenter, age 31, b. OH, father b. Eng., mother b. PA.
      Elizabeth Hales, wife, 29, b. UT, father b. IL, mother b. NC.
      Mary Hales, dau., 9, UT, OH, UT.
      John T. Hales, son, 6, UT, OH, UT.
      Melvina Hales, dau., 9m, UT, OH, UT.
      B. Parowan, Iron, Utah, FHL film 1255336, (National Archives Film T9-1336), p. 354C:
      H. Charles Hales, Cabinet Maker, age 31, b. IA, Father b. Eng. and Mother b. NY.
      A. Jemima Hales, age 17, b. UT, mother born MO.
      A. George Hales, son, age 9M, b. UT

      BIRTH:
      1. Extracted from Endowment House Sealing Ordinances, FHL film 1239501, pg. 155, 21 Feb 1870: "Elizabeth Hales, b. 13 Mch 1850, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah, bapt. 1858, parents are Samuel Thompson and Rosalie Holt."

      2. Extracted from Endowment House Sealing Ordinances, FHL film 183396, ref. 15213, 21 Feb 1870:
      -"Chas. Henry Hales, b. 17 Sep 1848, Garden Grove, Decatur, Iowa."
      -"Sarah Ellen Hunt, dead, b. 16 Mar 1850, Clay Cross, Derby, England."
      -"Elizabeth Thompson, b. 16 Apl 1853, Council Bluffs, Potawatamie, Iowa."

      3. 1880 and 1900 census returns for children indicate Elizabeth was born in UT.

      4. At endowment, she gives her baptismal date as 1858, which would indicate a birth in 1850.

      5. FHL film 392655 LDS "Patriarchal Blessings Index": Elizabeth Hales, b. 13 May [transcipt error for Mar.?] 1850 at Salt Lake City, Utah, parents Samuel Thompson and Druzella Holt. Blessing date 28 Feb 1876 at Spanish Fork, Utah. Lineage: Ephraim. Patriarch Morris Phelps. Vol. 687, p. 24.

      DEATH:
      1. Note that this wife is not mentioned as a widow in Charles Henry Hales obituary of 1907.

      SOURCES_MISC:
      1. Per www.hales.org 21 Dec 2002.

      2. Per family group sheet archive record submitted by William Heber Hales, 3925 Kisle Ave., Ogden, Utah. Note stamped theat former sealings reconfirmed for wife on 20 Nov 1967.

      ACTION:
      1. Find death info. Might be in Kanarra or Parowan since husband Charles lived in Kanarra from 1878 and moved thereafter to Parowan until they moved to Junction in 1884. On the other hand, her last child of record appears to have been born in Spanish Fork in 1879 after the 1878 move date of Charles to Kanarra. She also shows up in Spanish Fork during the 1880 census.
