Charles Milton and Zelpha Paya Roberts Pitts:  They lived in Highland for just a short time but they are mentioned as teachers in the Sunday School, along with their daughter Ethel Mae.  Charles was born April 12, 1885 in Little River, Kansas to Abel Emery and Emma T Mitchell Pitts.  Zelpha was born September 18, 1886 in Kansas to George Paya and Anna Hazelwood Roberts.  They were married September 16, 1903 in Kansas and were living in Nebraska in 1910.  By 1920 they had moved to Tyhee, Idaho and in 1930 were in Provo.  They were in Highland in 1921-23.  They had three children: Clara Louise, Ethel Mae and Milton Emery.  Ethel was a Sunday School teacher in 1923 as a teenager. 

Charles and Zelpha apparently divorced because she married Henry van Wagenen Smith on May 1, 1935 and Charles died December 23, 1949 in Salt Lake.  Zelpha died July 3, 1956 in Salt Lake and they are buried in Larkin Sunset Lawn cemetery.
