Trivia

  • Gordon Smith is not just a second cousin to Mark and Tom Udall, they are actually double second cousins. Two Udall brothers married two Lee sisters. Gordon Smith is the grandchild of one of those unions, while Mark and Tom Udall are grandchildren of the other.
  • David King Udall was a Mormon polygamist, and he had children through two different wives. Most of the descendants of his first wife, Eliza, who have held political office, have been Democrats. Most of the descendants of his second wife, Ida, who have held political office, have been Republicans.
  • In 1922 John Hunt Udall, running as a Republican, defeated his little brother, Levi Stewart Udall, running as a Democrat for clerk of the Arizona Superior Court.
  • Most Udall politicians have also been either Hunt or Lee descendants. Gordon Smith is unique in being descended from both additional lines. David King Udall and Levi Stewart Udall are the only two not descended from either of those lines (but each of them married into one).
  • Udall politicians have been elected from 4 different states: Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Oregon. If viewed as a combined entity, the Udall-Hunt-Lee family has been elected from 6 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Oregon, and Utah.

Anecdotes

In his autobiography Too Funny To Be President, Mo Udall describes the efforts of himself and his brother Stewart to get a dam built on the Colorado River (a position they later opposed). A citizen, who lived in Saint Johns, Arizona as a boy, dictated the following letter and mailed it to a number of politicians: St. ...

Dear Sirs:

I am an old man and I know a lot about...this Udall outfit. My father had a ranch on the Little Colorado River when I was a boy. We had cattle, sheep and goats and horses. In the bottom land we raised our corn and beans and chile and we were contented and happy. Then David K. Udall moved down to Saint Johns...and he and some other men like him put in a dam across the Little Colorado. We objected because it was a dangerous place to put in a dirt dam but they went right ahead and put it in anyway. The Little Colorado River is shown highlighted on a map of the United States The Little Colorado River is a tributary of the Colorado River, approximately 315 mi (507 km) long, in the U.S. state of Arizona. ... David King Udall, Sr. ...


When it broke, it ruined our land and drowned our cattle and goats and...I have been poor ever since. They never paid us a cent for the damages. I confess I do not like the Udalls and this is one reason.


Another reason is that you cannot trust any of them. The whole tribe were Republicans and David K. Udall and his brother Joe Udall tried for years to get the Mexicans, who were then all Republicans to give them a public office. But Don Lorenzo Hubbell, who was a great leader, saw through this scheme and never would let them get on the Republican ticket. And the Mormons, who were nearly all Democrats, would have none of them. But when Franklin Roosevelt came in, some of the Mexicans switched to him and the Udalls went along, or most of them did. Don Lorenzo Hubbell (November 27, 1853 - November 12, 1930) was a 19th century trader instrumental in promoting the sale of Navajo art. ... Franklin Delano Roosevelt (January 30, 1882–April 12, 1945), often referred to as FDR, was the 32nd (1933–1945) President of the United States. ...


However David K. Udall, the big shot, had a second wife hid out down the river at a place called Hunt and this wife had some boys who stayed Republican and one of them got to be mayor of Phoenix. In this way the Udall family can now work both sides of the street. I want you to check up on this because I am an old man and want to be sure of my facts. But my granddaughter tells me this Stewart Udall is trying to steal the water from the Colorado and I can believe it. Because this is the way it happened fifty and sixty years ago. The Udalls have been at this business a long time.


Respectfully yours,


Jose (Joe) Chavez
