Mexican-born American author of the Latter-day Saint hymn "They the Builders of the Nation". Alldredge wrote more than 400 poems as well as many musical works and a few dramatic works.
Her lyrics were put to song by such contemporaries as George Careless, B. Cecil Gates, and William Clive. Alldredge had songs sung in General Conference, in the Salt Lake and Arizona Temples, and at the Arizona Temple dedication of 1927.
Her parents were Miles Park Romney and Catherine Cottom. On her father's side, she was an aunt to Michigan Governor George W. Romney. Ida Romney married Leo "Lew" Alldredge on 26 August 1911. The following year they moved to Douglas, Arizona, with the body of the Mormon colonists who had decided to leave Mexico due to the disruptions caused by the Mexican Revolution. Lew worked as a merchant in Arizona. They later moved to Mesa, Arizona, where Ida Alldredge lived until her death, on 14 June 1943 at age 52.
