Abbreviated Autobiography from http://www.allredfamily.org/HistoryOfIsaac.htm The following history is an abridgement of a copy of Isaac's history as written by him in 1849. This copy was in the possession of Athlene Allred Osborne, a great grand daughter of Isaac, and has been posted on the Allred Organization website. "I, Isaac Allred, the son of James Allred, was born the 20th of June, 1814, in Bedford County, Tennessee. Here I was raised on a farm until I was 17 years old, at which time my family moved to Monroe County, Missouri. Here we were admitted into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1832. Later the same year I was married to Julia Ann Taylor. The following spring I marched with the Prophet Joseph Smith to Clay County, Missouri to help liberate the
Saints (the Zion's Camp March). In the fall of 1835, I, in the company of my father and others, moved to Clay County, where we stayed one year and raised one crop. But this year our people became careless to the nonmembers living among them; some resolutions were passed and it was decided that it was best for our people to live by themselves. In October of 1836, we moved with the Church to Caldwell County. I bought land from the government and made a far. In the year of 1837 I was ordained an Elder. In the fall of that year, at the request of the prophet Joseph Smith, I, in the company of Benjamin L. Cluff, went out to preach the gospel to the people. We traveled eleven hundred miles. I spoke at Brooks Cedars and baptized eleven. Later on that year, after putting my crop in, I left on my second mission. We traveled by steamer to St. Louis, then up the Ohio River where we commenced preaching. On this mission, I traveled two thousand one hundred miles, preached 35 times, and baptized four souls, before returning home. The Church was mobbed and driven out of Missouri in the fall of 1838. We settled in military land in Illinois and took out a lease for five years. I made some improvements and remained one year, then moved to Nauvoo, built a house and did the best I could for a living. After some months I left with Solomon Hancock for a mission to Missouri after they had driven us out. We baptized some, organized a branch and returned home. I went to work for Mr. Law, cutting timber. I remained with him for two years. The mob in Illinois raised against the church and killed the Prophet and his brother, Hyrum. The Nauvoo Legion was organized and I was commissioned colonel on the Fifth Regiment in the Legion. The Law family left the Church and relieved me of my place. I moved back to my home and went to work on the Temple and stayed until it was finished. During this the toils and privations of life, the afflictions in sickness and the death of brothers and sisters and friends, my pen cannot print. In February, 1846, we left Nauvoo and crossed the Mississippi River to the state of Iowa. I being perfectly destitute of anything to help myself. We stayed at Garden Grave for two years, at which time, I traveled from place to place suffering the entire loss of what little property I had. President (Brigham) Young, finding out my condition, sent for me to leave Garden Grove. By the help of my father, we left in the spring of 1848 and moved to Council Bluffs, Iowa. Here I made a crop and built a house. I was elected Constable at the August election. I was called by President Young to travel and preach to the branches of the Church. With this sketch there are thousands of other circumstances that I should have like to of written
that my history be more complete, but being poor and being driven to the extremity, I must omit them. My father's family (1849) is scattered to the four winds of heaven. My oldest brother (William Hackley Allred) left the Church, the next one (Martin Carrel Allred) died, and my three youngest sisters are in three different states, and my two brothers (actually one brother, James T. S. Allred and a nephew, Reuben Warren Allred, son of Martin Carrel, who was raised as a brother after his father's death, as well as two cousins, Redick N. and James Riley) drug off into the service of the United States (Mormon Battalion) after being driven from their homes and robbed of their property. I thank the Lord that I yet live and have a standing in the Church. Wednesday, December 20th, 1849. All is well. Thank God." Note: Isaac Allred crossed the plains in 1851 as a captain of a company of Saints (followers). With his family, he settled in Kaysville, Utah. He served a mission (his fourth?) to Great Britain from 1853 to 1855. After his mission, he moved to Ogden and then to Ephraim, where his parents lived. He married Mary Henderson in Nauvoo and in 1856 he got into an argument with Thomas Ivie over sheep and was hit with a burning log from the campfire and killed. By his three wives, he fathered seventeen children.
LDS Biographical Encyclopedia From http://www.allredfamily.org/isaac_allred2.htm ALLRED, ISAAC, a member of Zion's Camp, was born June 28, 1813, at Nashville, Tenn., the son of James Allred and Elizabeth Warren. His parents being members of the Church he was baptized Sept. 10, 1832, by Geo. M. Hinkle. In 1834 he marched to Missouri as a member of Zion's Camp and afterwards located in Nauvoo, Ill. After working on the Nauvoo Temple he received his endowments in the same after its completion. At the age of nineteen years he married Julia Ann Taylor, daughter of Wm. Taylor and Elizabeth Patrick. Yielding obedience to the higher law, he married Mary Henderson as a plural wife in the Nauvoo Temple in 1846. He spent all his time working for the Church for several years and traveled much as a preacher of the Gospel in different States. Participating in the general exodus of the saints from Nauvoo in February, 1846, he spent a short time in the camp on Sugar Creek, Iowa, after which he crossed the prairies of Iowa to the Missouri river. Thence he crossed the plains in 1851 as captain of a company of saints and settled at Kaysville, Davis county, Utah. He filled a mission to Great Britain in 1851-1855, and through his labor in the States and in England many converts were brought into the Church. Soon after his return from his mission to Europe in October, 1855, he moved to Ogden, where he resided with his two families until the time of "the move" in 1858, when he settled at Ephraim, Sanpete county, where his parents resided. There he remained till the next year, when he was killed by Thos. Ivie, who assailed him over a trivial matter and beat him with a burning
stick from the camp fire May 11, 1859. He died the next day. The difficulty arose over some sheep which Bro. Allred had in charge and which belonged to Thos. Ivie. His murderer was tried and condemned to death, but he managed to escape and went east. Pres. Young prophesied that Thos. Ivie would apostatize from the Church and that buzzards would pick his bones. This prediction was literally fulfilled, as the remains of Mr. Ivie were subsequently found in a corn field nearly devoured by buzzards. About 1856 Bro. Allred married Emma Dewey. He had ten children by his first wife, five by his second wife, and two by the third wife. All of these grew up to manhood and womanhood, except one, and all have distinguished themselves as faithful Latter-day Saints.
Patriarchal Blessing of Isaac Allred from http://www.allredfamily.org/isaac_allred.htm Note: This document seems to have been corrupted, and some of the phrases and words were moved around incorrectly on the page. We have tried to reconstruct it here, with the last line being put in its appropriate place, although there may have been some of the last part of the blessing that was lost. Isaac Allred, son of James Allred and Elizabeth Warren Allred, was born June 28, 1813. Blessing pronounced by Patriarch John Smith Beloved Brother. I lay my hands upon thy head in the name of Jesus Christ and seal a further blessing upon you for and in behalf of thy father. Thou art entitled to all the blessings which were sealed upon the heads of the fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and a lawful heir of the same Priesthood which was sealed upon the head of Ephraim, the son of Joseph, who was sold into Egypt. Thou art called to preach the gospel to many people and the Lord, thy God, will bless thee. Thou shalt baptize many and bring them to Zion. The Spirit whispers more particular that thou art to be a counselor in Israel. The Lord has given His Angels charge to watch over thee, to defend thee from the evils which are in the world and to help thee in all times of trouble. Thou shalt be able to escape out of the hands of thine enemies unhurt. Thou shalt be clothed with wisdom and understanding to discern between good and evil, to counsel in righteousness, and thy work shall be acceptable before the Lord and His People. Thou shalt be a Savior upon Mt. Zion to save thy dead and living friends and to bring them up in the resurrection of the just and reign over them in a kingdom of glory to all eternity; thou shalt also have a numerous posterity. The number of thy years shall be according to thy faith, even to see the curtains of Zion extend to all its glory and beauty; Israel gathered from the four corners of the earth, and the prophesies which have been spoken all fulfilled concerning the Latter*Day Glory. Finally, thou shalt inherit all the riches of the earth and heaven. No good thing shall be withheld from thee. This blessing shall be perpetual to your children to all generations, and thy name shall
be had in honorable remembrance in the Church forever inasmuch as thou wilt give all diligence to magnify the office not one word of this blessing shall fail, for I seal upon thy head in the Name of Jesus Christ and seal it up to eternal life, Even So, Amen.
