    1848 · Early Settlers
    Age 1
    The earliest settlers housed themselves in a dugout in a hillside. The first families settled in the South Cottonwood area during the fall of 1848. These families settled near Little Cottonwood Creek and Big Cottonwood Creek which made it easy to water animals and crops. Nearly twenty families were living in South Cottonwood in 1860's. The area was surveyed by Amasa M. Lyman and divided into one-mile square areas. These were then subdivided into 10 acre plots per family. The first to settle the area included William Crosby, James M. Flake, Daniel Clark, John Brown, John Tanner and sons, Nathan and Sidney, along with Daniel Thomas. The earliest houses were built out of logs and adobe. Time was spent farming and herding. For fun, some spent time riding broncos, fishing, hunting, or dancing to an accordion. The area was crawling with wildlife such as blackbirds, mockingbirds, skunks, minks, badgers, and wolves.
    Age 16
    Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
    1867 · Sorry Mr. President, You can't do that.
    Age 20
    This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The Amendment was later repealed.

    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name for a weaver, from early Middle English webbe (Old English webba (masculine) or webbe (feminine), probably used of both male and female weavers). This word survived into Middle English long enough to give rise to the surname, but was already obsolescent as an agent noun; hence the secondary forms with the agent suffixes -er and -ster (see Webster , Webber and compare Weaver ).Americanized form of various like-sounding Jewish (Ashkenazic) surnames, cognates of 1, including Weber and Weberman.History: Richard Webb, a Lowland Scot, was an admitted freeman of Boston in 1632, and in 1635 was one of the first settlers of Hartford, CT.
