William and Susana Clifford Householder: The Householder’s were both born in Pennsylvania, William August 14, 1836, and Susana June 2, 1834, and in the 1860 census had three children. William’s parents were Jonathan and Eva Painter Householder. They crossed the plains from Omaha, arriving in Utah in September, 1862 with the Homer Duncan company. They homesteaded the 160 acres west of Hegan’s and east of Heber Preece (#81 on the 1958 Highland map).
The 1880 census shows them living in American Fork with 4 children: Alfred, Sarah Ann, Johnston and Mary. At least two other children are mentioned in other census records: Rosetta and Joseph Hyrum. Susana died March 25, 1902, and William married Sarah Ann DeFriese on December 26, 1905. His occupation is listed as Quartz Miner. His homestead patent states that he built a home and moved in to it in November 1876 and lived there continuously until the patent was finalized in November, 1882. It is unknown how long they lived in Highland but his obituary says that he was a long-time resident of American Fork. He died December 8, 1920, and he and Susana are buried in the American Fork City Cemetery.
Ernest Greenwood and Hazel Buker Hunter: The Hunters lived in Highland in 1930 and 1935 in two different homes, #29 and #89 but the chronology is confusing. In 1925 they owned the 46 acres at #89 and leased it to Hugo Reimschiissel (q.v.) for one year. Probably the Hunter’s moved in then from #29. Ern, as he was known, was born March 14, 1878, in Orderville, Utah Territory to William Wallace and Rachel Greenwood Hunter. Hazel was born in Alpine, Utah June 15, 1895, to William Henry and Adelaide Laure Andrews Buker.
They were married September 5, 1916, and in 1918, when he registered for the draft, they were in American Fork and he was a farmer and stock raiser. They were also living in American Fork at the 1920 census. They had two children: Ernest W. and Bertrand M. In the 1940 census and in 1942 when he registered for the draft, Ern was living alone in American Fork. Apparently Ern and Hazel were divorced, as he married Sarah Ruth Losee April 27, 1944. She was born July 29, 1878, to Isaac and Mary Miranda Davis Losee. Ern died March 25, 1953, in American Fork. Hazel died March 22, 1986.
