History Timeline up to about 1930

  • 1905 - Most of the country now included in the Duchesne Stake constituted a part of the Uintah Indian Reservation until 1905.
  • 1910 - The stake conference held at Vernal, Sept. 14, 1910, the Uintah Stake was divided and the west part, or the Indian Reservation, was organized as the Duchesne Stake.
  • 1910 - At the time of its organization the Duchesne Stake consisted of the following bishop’s wards and branches: Boneta, Hayden, Roosevelt, Tabiona and Theodore.
  • 1920 - At a stake conference held June 27, 1920, the Duchesne Stake of Zion was divided and the eastern part of the same, containing Alterra, Bennett, Cedar View, Hayden, Ioka, Myton, Neola, Randlett and Roosevelt, were organized as the Roosevelt Stake of Zion.
  • 1920 - The wards of Altonah, Arcadia, Bluebell, Boneta, Duchesne, Midview, Mount Emmons, Mountain Home, Redcliff, Strawberry, Tabiona, Talmage, Upalco and Utahn were retained in the Duchesne Stake.
  • 1920 - In the organization of the new stake the northern, western, and southern stake lines remained the same as before, but the east line running north and south separating the Duchesne Stake from the Roosevelt Stake was established at the so-called Dry Gulch, about five miles east of Bluebell Ward, part of the way running southeast toward Lake Fork River. In the south part of the stake the east boundary line follows the course of Lake Fork River until the point where that river empties into the Duchesne River, thence the boundary line runs due south until it connects with the southern line running east and west.

This timeline (arranged by year) includes events that affected records, record-keeping, and movements of Mormons in this area.
