Isaac Mahlon and Ellen Marie McDaniel Peck: Mahlon was born November 15, 1913 in Lehi, Utah the only child of Isaac Reuben and Imogene Agnes Allred Peck (twin sisters were born prematurely and died). His family operated a dairy farm on State Street about 1800 East (Where the Meadows shopping center is now). When Mahlon was eight years old his parents were called on a mission to California for two years. He enjoyed helping with the work by passing out tracts and working in a film studio.
Marie was born December 10, 1915 in Alpine, Utah to Robert Earnest and Millie Proctor McDaniel, the fifth of nine children. She attended school through eighth grade in Alpine then graduated from American Fork High School in 1934. In Alpine School they had two grades in each room and one teacher taught both grades. When she was eight, she injured her leg in a sleigh riding accident and this bothered her throughout life, especially later, when she was pregnant and had to lie on her back for about six months. I
They were married September 30, 1935 in the Salt Lake Temple. They lived on his father’s farm and managed it until 1960, when the freeway was being built they were bought out and they purchased Ludvig Larson’s farm and moved there (#4 on the 1958 Highland map), after remodeling extensively.
They raised hay, grain, corn and cattle, with a Grade A dairy. Mahlon had a number of close calls-accidents that could have been fatal. He had one encounter with a corn chopper that left his hand crippled.
They were active in the Church-Mahlon was very involved in the scouting program and Marie taught in the YWMIA and in Primary and they both have done a lot of temple and genealogy work. In 1989 they were called to the Rochester, New York mission.
In 1994 they sold the farm and moved to Provo where Marie died December 15, 1996. Mahlon married Lois Stokes on August 12, 1997 and he passed away September 29, 1999 in Provo. They are buried in the Lehi City Cemetery.
