    Notes 
    • Wilson K. Lythgoe ("Billy") says that his father Thomas left home at an early age, right after his mother died, to "ride with the cowboys." He worked as a cowboy, on the stagecoach, and even had his own freighting business, freighting from Bridger, MT to Wyoming. He never did get over the death of his first wife, Mary.

      According to Wilson, Thomas had a strained relationship with his family. He was only close to his "kid" sister, who lived in Ogden.

      A step-grandson of Thomas says, "Grandpa Lythgoe (Tom) was a wonderful grandpa to me when as a little boy he let me 'help' him and Uncle Bill (Wilson King Lythgoe) put up hay every summer. Between Grandpa and Uncle Bill I was paid five cents a load which was a fortune during those depression years.

      "I remember him singing folk songs that had a line about 'he combed his hair with a wagon wheel'. I remember him reading at night by the kerosene lamp. I remember that he was the hardest worker who always had a happy spirit, especially in a job well done.

      "His greatest joy was his beautiful matched teams of horses. Your picture of him holding his team beside his log cabin tells volumes about his pride in fine horses.

      "I never thought of him as a "step-grandfather" but as the best grampa a little boy could have hoped for."

      Baptized in Santaquin, Utah, UT.
