    Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: Was converted in England with his brother John (first husband of Catherine Harrop) and the rest of the family. Most then migrated to America. Their father would not come, allegedly due to a fear of water.

      The IGI records that James and "Martha Heeliss" were married again on 7 Jan 1865 in Salt Lake City. This is just prior to their sealing on 25 Jan 1865.

      Middle name may have been Ernest. One IGI record shows "James Ernest Lythgoe" marrying Elizabeth Ann Birks.

      From "Henefer, Our Valley Home":
      p.18: Came to Utah 26 Sep 1864, Joseph S. Rawlin's Oxteam Company. Trade: Farmer, shoemaker, musician.

      p.28: James Lythgoe was an apprentice to a shoemaker in Lancashire, England. He learned the trade and made wooden shoes. He also learned to play the violin in England, walking seven miles each week for his music lesson. He taught music lessons and could play and teach almost any instruments. After arriving in Utah, he homesteaded a farm but his music was never forgotten. He played his violin for many entertainments and dances and became chorister for the first choir organized in Henefer. He and his wife, Hannah, operated a little confectionery and store for many years in Henefer.

      p.113: As early as May 7, 1871 James Lythgoe was authorized to organize and preside over a choir in the Henneferville Branch. James became the first choir leader and undertook the assignment with serious intent. His organist was William Paskett...

      1880 US Census lists his occupation as "Farming".
