Isaac Allred, son of James Allred and Elizabeth Warren, was born June 28, 1813 Bedford County, Tennessee. The family moved to Monroe County, Missouri in 1830. Many of the family joined the Church in 1832. Isaac was baptized the same day that his father, James Allred, and others of the family were. The family moved to Clay County in 1832, and thence into Caldwell County, Missouri in 1835. They were driven out with the Mormons to Pittsfield, Pike County, Illinois. From here they went to Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois.

They left Nauvoo with the Saints in 1845 and journeyed to Garden Grove, Iowa, where they were told to stay and help the migrating Saints. From here they moved on to Council Bluffs. In 1851, they followed the rest of the Saints to Utah. Isaac Allred was a Captain of 50 wagons. There were not less than thirty Allreds in the company. At this time, Isaac had two wives and eleven children. The company arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah in August of 1851 and Isaac Allred and his family settled in Kaysville or Kaysward. He went on a three year mission to England in 1853. In 1855, the family moved to Slaterville, Weber County, Utah, where they lived until 1858. From here they moved to Ephraim, Sanpete County, and thence to Mt. Pleasant in 1859.

Patriarchal Blessing of Isaac Allred

Isaac Allred, son of James Allred and Elizabeth Warren Allred, was born June 28, 1813. Blessing pronounced by Patriarch John Smith

Beloved Brother. I lay my hands upon thy head in the name of Jesus Christ and seal a further blessing upon you for and in behalf of thy father. Thou art entitled to all the blessings which were sealed upon the heads of the fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and a lawful heir of the same Priesthood which was sealed upon the head of Ephraim, the son of Joseph, who was sold into Egypt.

Thou art called to preach the gospel to many people and the Lord, thy God, will bless thee. Thou shalt baptize many and bring them to Zion. The Spirit whispers more particular that thou art to be a counselor in Israel. The Lord has given His Angels charge to watch over thee, to defend thee from the evils which are in the world and to help thee in all times of trouble.

Thou shalt be able to escape out of the hands of thine enemies unhurt. Thou shalt be clothed with wisdom and understanding to discern between good and evil, to counsel in righteousness, and thy work shall be acceptable before the Lord and His People. Thou shalt be a Savior upon Mt. Zion to save thy dead and living friends and to bring them up in the resurrection of the just and reign over them in a kingdom of glory to all eternity; thou shalt also have a numerous posterity. The number of thy years shall be according to thy faith, even to see the curtains of Zion extend to all its glory and beauty; Israel gathered from the four corners of the earth, and the prophesies which have been spoken all fulfilled concerning the Latter Day Glory. Finally, thou shalt inherit all the riches of the earth and heaven. No good thing shall be withheld from thee. This blessing shall be perpetual to your children to all generations, and thy name shall be had in honorable rememberence in the Church forever inasmuch as thou wilt give all diligence to magnify the office not one word of this blessing shall fail, for I seal.
