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.
