Notes:  Lela Hinton was born 10 Dec 1907 in Hinckley, Millard, Utah.  Her given name on her birth certificate is Areta, but she was always called Lela.  She was the fourth of seven children of Thomas Maurice Hinton and Wilhelmina Barbara Walker.  Her sister Vera had been born in 1899, brother Maurice Vernet in 1902, and sister Elma in 1904.  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 Lela'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.

In the 1910 U.S. census, Lela'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, Lela'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.

Lela, 19, married Timothy Hoyt, 28, on 25 Jan 1927 in Kanab, Kane, Utah.  Their first daughter Cleyone Hoyt was born in Nov 1927 in Hurricane, Washington, Utah.  She died of a congenital heart disease a month and one day later and is buried in the Hurricane City Cemetery.

In the 1930 U.S. census, Lela and Timothy were living on Third North in Hurricane, Washington, Utah.  Timothy was a sheep stockman working on his own account.  They owned the farm, and had a radio.  Their daughter Alice was 1 year, 3 months.  Their son Timothy Hal was born in Apr 1932 in Hurricane.

In the 1940 U.S. census, Lela and Timothy were living on the same farm as in 1935, in Hurricane.  They owned their farm, valued at $2000.  Timothy was a hack driver in agriculture, working on his own account.  Lela had completed 4 years of high school.  Their children were Alice, 11, and T. Hal, 7.  A daughter Ann MaRie was born in Jan 1943.

Lela was a member of the Latter-day Saints, and was active in the Hurricane Garden Club, acting as publicity chairman in 1949.
