    Age 8
    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.
