Notes:  Thomas Maurice Hinton was born 8 Oct 1872 in Virgin, Washington, Utah.  He was the sixth of eleven children of John Nock Hinton and Emma Spendlove.  His older siblings included John Maurice, born in Apr 1862, Agnes Elizabeth, Jun 1864, Marian, Apr 1866, Emma, May 1868, and Atkins, Jul 1870.  His younger siblings included Annie, born in Sep 1874, Joel, 1877 and died at 3 days, Bernard Bulmer, Jan 1879, Edith Alice, Mar 1881, and Catherine, Apr 1984.  All of the children had been born in Virgin, except John, born in Salt Lake City.
In the 1880 U.S. census, Thomas, enumerated as Morice, was living with his family in Virgin City, Kane, Utah.  (The 1880 U.S. census used the old county line between Kane and Washington counties, placing Virgin in Kane County rather then correctly in Washington County.)  His father John was a cabinet maker.

Thomas married Wilhelmina Barbara Walker on 5 October 1898 in the Salt Lake Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah.  In the 1900 U.S. census, they were living in Hinckley, Millard, Utah.  Enumerated as Morris in this census, Thomas was a carpenter, and they owned their house free of mortgage.  They had a daughter Vera, born in Aug 1899.  Thomas was a section hand for the Union Pacific Railroad, and Wilhelmina cooked for the men.  As such they moved around Utah and Nevada, including Black Rock, Eureka, and Salt Lake City where Thomas did carpenter work.  The Salt Lake City, Utah, City Directory, 1904 lists Thomas M. Hinton as a carpenter, residing at 2 Goddard's Ct.

Son Maurice Vernet was born in Mar 1902, and daughter Elma in July 1904.  In 1905 the family moved to Virgin, Utah, Thomas' home town.  Then in Mar 1906, the family moved to Hurricane, Washington, Utah.  The history sources note that "Mr. and Mrs. Thomas M. Hinton became the first residents of Hurricane when they occupied the bench in 1906." First, Thomas built a granary and home for Thomas Isom.  Then he built the family home, located at 199 North and 200 West, Hurricane.  Daughter Lela was born in Dec 1907.

In the 1910 U.S. census, Thomas and Wilhelmina were living in Hurricane, Washington, Utah.  Thomas was a house carpenter.  They had been married 11 years and Wilhelmina had had five children, all of whom were then living.  The youngest was Lucille, born April 1910.  Jay Louis was born in Sep 1913, and Francis Clemons in April 1917.

In 1918, when Thomas registered for the World War Draft, he listed himself as a farmer.  He was described as being short, of slender build, with blue eyes and black hair.

In the 1920 U.S. census, Thomas and Wilhelmina's address was listed as 2nd West Street, Hurricane, and Thomas was farming on his own account.  The children at home included Vernet, a farm hand on the family farm, Elma, Lela, Lucile, Louis, and Francis.  All of the children except the youngest had attended school.  Living with them as renters were their daughter Vera Eagar and her husband Thomas Eagar, a sheep herder.

In the 1930 U.S. census, Thomas and Wilhelmina were described as living on a farm on Third North, Hurricane, Thomas being a farmer of a "mixed farm".  The children at home were Vernet, a preacher for the Mormon church, Lucille, a telephone operator, Louis, a mail boy, and Francis, attending school.

In the 1940 U.S. census, Hurricane, Thomas and Wilhelmina were living in the same house as in 1935, which they owned, valued at $1,000.  Thomas was a farmer and Wilhelmina was a nurse.  The children at home were Jay, a paper delivery man, and Clemons, a sheep herder.

Thomas died 29 Feb 1948 in Hurricane, Washington, Utah.  Cause of death was myocarditis, with edema of the lungs.  He was buried 2 Mar 1948 in the Hurricane City Cemetery, Hurricane, Washington, Utah.
