Title Fairview's First Flour Mill
Description but they wanted sugar. "All right," said Elam, "You take the flour and I will take the sugar, or, I will take the sugar and you take the flour." To this proposition, the old Indian repliedi "All time you take sugar, You no say me get sugar no time." Within a period of eight years, ELam enlarged his building and added sifter equipment to enable hln to produce the finest of white flour which could be separated into various grades. About I876 or 18?7i Elam sold the mill to a company of Fair-visw men. Bishop Peterson, Ed Terry, Willis Howell, and Peter Sundwall. Thus us find that Elan Cheney Has the founder of a "successful venture," as President Brigham Young had predicted. In conclusion, the writer would like to pay tribute to this notie pioneer, Elan Cheney, in recognizing his great sacrifices, untiring efforts, honesty, devotion, and integrity in founding and pioneering this important industry of Fairview. His many blessings to the people of Fairview have never been recorded and perhaps never fully understood and appreciated. However, the townspeople have erected a monument in his honor on the City Square. His living aon-ument Is evidenced by a vast and honorable posterity.
