During November of 1880 William’s daughter, Harriet Parthenia (Feenie) Hyde, embarked on the formidable task of teaching school. Her class would soon grow to nearly thirty students of diverse ages, some of whom were near her age of seventeen. From the settlers journals we learn of their love for Feenie. She was a favorite with many settlers, some of who referred to her as Feen. The school was in the fort (Fort Montezuma 1879-1884,R. F. McDonald © 2010).
"During the spring of 1881, William’s daughter, Parthenia, (Feenie) found herself being stalked by a young Ute Indian, the son of Sanop. Eventually Sanop approached William and asked for Parthenia to be a wife for his son. William refused, and Sanop threatened to kill him, but William was firm. Sanop backed down, though it was a severe insult to the Indian. In Indian culture, he had acted properly and respectfully, as this was the Ute Indian custom of acquiring a wife. Feenie was 18.
In 1881 Feenie scratched her name in the solid rock wall of the river corridor about 6 miles downriver from Montezuma, so we have her autograph. She also drew a duck under it. Not pictured, but next to this autograph is the autograph of Jennie Ownes, possibly a student in Feenie’s school class." (Ron McDonald. Fort Montezuma 1879-1884: An account of the first Mormon settlers in San Juan County, Utah. p. 36)
McDonald also stated: "Parthenia, (Feenie) helped settle the town of Monticello along with her brothers in 1888. In 1893 she married Arthur T. Dalley. During the following 10 to 20 years, they lived in--Provo, Utah, the state of Michigan, Juarez, Mexico, Thatcher, Arizona, Salt Lake City, Idaho Falls, Idaho, Sugar City, Idaho,and possibly Park City, Utah. This was an amazing amount of travel for horse and buggy days. Feenie
had three children by this marriage: Angeline, O’Enone, and Theon. She then divorced Arthur Dalley
sometime prior to 1912, and later lived in New York City. Feenie spent her last years with her
daughter Angeline, in San Mateo, California. She died in San Francisco on July 16, 1950, at age
eighty-seven. She never married again after her separation from Arthur Dalley."
Ernest Bertrand was born on 5 Jan 1866 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah. He died on 21 Apr 1933 in Salt Lake City.
The next story is taken from the biography of Ernest Hyde, who was eighteen years old at the time of
the famous 1884 fight, in which the Utes, some of whom are named above, were at war with both the
cavalry and the Blue Mountain cowboys. Ernest had been out on the range herding cattle and was on his
way home when darkness overtook him. He turned his horse loose, placed his saddle blanket on the
ground, and prepared to sleep. His account tells of his horse staying close, and often sniffing near his
face. He could feel it’s warm breathe on the back of his neck. In the middle of the night something
awakened Ernest; he looked up in the moonlight and saw Mancos Jim standing over him.
The Ute leader said, “Who are you? Are you, a Mormon?” Ernest replied, “Yes, I’m the son of William
Hyde.” Mancos Jim informed Ernest he was sleeping in the middle of a Ute Indian trail, and he was
lucky he didn’t get shot. Then he told Ernest he had better get on his horse and keep going, because
more Indians were on the warpath, and would be passing that way. Ernest quickly lost interest in
sleeping, took Mancos Jim’s advice and rode on through the night until he reached the fort. The Hyde
family also gave Mancos Jim credit for saving the lives of Ernest’s mother, Angeline, and sister, Feenie
in 1887 (Ron McDonald. Fort Montezuma 1879-1884: An account of the first Mormon settlers in San Juan County, Utah. p. 65)
Francis (Frank) Hyde: was born on 28 May 1870 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah. He died on 18 Dec 1935 in Long Beach, Los Angeles Co. Married Lucinda Diantha Nielson, daughter of Jens Nielson, who also came through the Hole in the Rock. Several of their young children were buried in Bluff:
At Rincon William’s two sons Ernest and Frank formed a partnership with Amasa Barton and Joseph
Barton, who had taken over the Hyde trading post. They had accumulated a good number of sheep
from the Navajos which Ernest enjoyed herding. The Hyde-Barton trading business at Rincon
continued until a Navajo killed Amasa Barton on June 9, 1887, just days following the birth of their
second son. This tragedy put an end to operations at Rincon.
