Notes:  Elma Hinton was born 26 Jul 1904 in Hinckley, Millard, Utah.  She was the third of seven children of Thomas Maurice Hinton and Wilhelmina Barbara Walker.  Her sister Vera had been born in 1899, and brother Maurice Vernet in 1902.  The family moved about as her father Thomas, a carpenter by trade, was a section hand for the Union Pacific Railroad, and her mother Wilhelmina cooked for the men.  The Salt Lake City, Utah, City Directory, 1904 lists Thomas M. Hinton as a carpenter, residing at 2 Goddard's Ct.

In 1905 Elma's family moved to Virgin, Utah, her father's home town.  Then in 1906 they 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." Her father built the family home, located at 199 North and 200 West, Hurricane.  Her sister Lela was born in 1907.

In the 1910 U.S. census, Elma's family was living in Hurricane, Washington, Utah.  Her father Thomas was a house carpenter.  Her sister Lucille had just been born in Apr 1910.  Her brother Jay Louis was born in 1913, and brother Francis Clemons in 1917.  In 1917, when her father Thomas registered for the World War Draft, he listed himself as a farmer.

In the 1920 U.S. census, Elma's family was living on 2nd West Street, Hurricane.  Her father Thomas was farming on his own account.  The children at home included Vernet, 17, a farm hand on the family farm, Elma, 15, Lela, 12, Lucile, 9, Louis, 6, and Francis, 2.  All of the children except the youngest had attended school.  Living with them as renters were her older sister Vera Eagar, 20, and her husband Thomas Eagar, 21, a sheep herder.

Elma married Frank Forrest Cole of Nephi, Utah, on 26 Jan 1925 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah.  In the 1930 U.S. census, Elma, 25, and her husband Frank, 32, were living at 495 E. Center Street, Nephi, Juab, Utah.  They owned the residence, which was on a farm, and did not have a radio.  Frank was a laborer at a gypsum mill.  Their children were Keith, 4, Nadine, 3, Elwin, 2, and Jeannine, 11 months.

In the 1940 U.S. census, Elma, 36, and Frank, 42, were living in the same house as in 1936, on Center Street in Nephi, valued at $1,000.  Frank was a weed eradication foreman for the Work Projects Administration.  Elma had completed three years of high school  Their children were Keith, 14, Nadine, 13, Elwin, 12, Jeannine, 10, Lu Rae, 8, Carma, 7, Gail, 6, Carolyn, 5, Erma, 2, Lanna Ross, 1, and an infant, 2 months.  Two additional children were added to the family after 1940.

Frank died 25 Oct 1973 at the age of 72 in the Utah Valley Hospital, Provo, Utah, Utah.  Elma died 31 Jan 1987 in Payson, Utah, Utah.  Her last residence had been in Springville, Utah, Utah, probably living with her daughter Nadine.  She is buried next to her husband in the Nephi City Cemetery, Nephi, Juab, Utah.
