Biography

Even though the Hinckleys had been in America since 1635, Ira was born in Canada, where his father worked as a boatman on the Great Lakes. By age two, his father died.

One summer, Mormon missionaries came and taught the gospel to Ira's family, and Ira was baptized when he was twelve. The family moved to Illinois, and there Ira was baptized when he was twelve. The family moved to Illinois, and there Ira became so sick that he was given up for dead. He recovered, but soon after, his mother passed away, leaving nine children. For six months, Ira worked for a man who promised to give him clothes and schooling in exchange, but the man moved, and Ira only got a few weeks of school.

Cove Fort

Ira left his home in Coalville, UT, in 1867 to build historic Cove Fort, Utah. Cove Fort was always a stopping place on the main highway between Salt Lake Valley and Southern Utah. The kitchen and dining room were bustling with activity. It was not unusual for Mrs. Hinckley to feed 75 people daily. Cowboys tended to the church's tithing herds and a blacksmith was kept busy reshoeing the horses and oxen of travelers and repairing wagon wheels. With a telegraph office at the fort and the Pony Express riders passing through, news of the great, growing West kept the Hinckleys from feeling isolated. The fort served an important function for nearly twenty years, but as times changed, so did the need for the fort. After 1900, the Church sold it to a private owner.

In 1994 his grandson, LDS Church President Gordon Bitner Hinckley (1910-2008) dedicated the Historic Cove Fort Complex. Visitors are welcome free of charge.
