      Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church:

      TABIONA WARD, Duchesne Stake, Duchesne Co., Utah, consists of the Latter-day Saints residing on the upper Duchesne River, mostly in a little valley (one of the most beautiful in the Uintah Basin) extending from southwest to northeast along the river. The valley is about ten miles long, with an average width of two miles. The Tabiona townsite is situated on the east side of the river, ten miles southeast of Redcliff, 27 miles northwest of Duchesne, and 45 miles by mountain road southeast of Kamas, Summit Co., Utah. About one-half of the people reside on the Tabiona townsite, and the other half live scattered on their respective farms, strung out on the east side of the river.
      Immediately after the Uintah Reservation was opened for white settlers in 1905, Alma W. Wagstaff and others filed on land and built cabins in that part of the country now included in Tabiona Ward. The actual settlement of Tabiona took place in the spring of 1906, when a number of Latter-day Saints located there. A townsite was surveyed on lands which had formerly been owned by the Indian Chief Tabby, and in his honor the place was named Tabbyville, afterwards changed to Tabiona. A branch of the Church was organized at Tabbyville July 24, 1910, with Thomas A. White as presiding Elder. This branch was organized as a regular bishop's ward Dec. 10, 1911, called Tabiona instead of Tabbyville, with James Simpkins Jones as Bishop. He was succeeded in 1916 by Alma W. Wagstaff, who in 1920 was succeeded by Claude L. Wagstaff, who in 1926 was succeeded by H. Guy Jones, who in 1930 was succeeded by Jessup R. Thomas, who presided Dec. 31, 1930, on which date the Church membership of Tabiona was 341, including 100 children. The total population of the Tabiona Precinct was 277 in 1930.
