Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 071
Description COVE CREEK FORT From Fillmore we climbed to Cove Creek Fort, a forty-eight miles' drive. About twelve miles out of Fillmore we reached CORN CREEK, which we crossed at a small Mormon village,42 near what Kanosh pompously called his city. The Pah-vants are settled on a farm by government treaty. I looked with great interest at the surrounding mountains, as being the old haunts of Wah-ker ; and the narrow canon was pointed out to me which was his burial-place. Kanosh had invited us to visit his city, but it lay out of the direct road, and the length of our day's journey permitted no excursions. Kanosh is a Mormon convert, and prides himself on his "white ways. " His favorite wife-an Indian girl, brought up in a Mormon family-persuaded him to let her keep house "Mar: mane fashion" for him. The Mormons had built her a nice little cottage, where she had real doors and windows, six chairs ranged round the room, a high-post bedstead in the corner, and plates and dishes in a press. She had her cows,-and made but- ter,- her poultry, eggs, and vegetables; and in her day Kanosh proudly displayed a stiff clean shirt-front and high collar every Sunday. 42This is present-day Kanosh. In 1854 the Mormons located their town about three miles northwest of Kanosh, and it was called successively Petersburg and Hatton. The town was one of the necessary depots for the stageline of Gilmer and Salisbury from Salt Lake City to Pioche, Nevada. In 1868 Brigham Young advised the people to move farther up the creek to conserve water, avoid early frost, and enjoy more fertile soil. Prior to the Mormon settlement in 1867, the town was all Indian farms. Day and Ekins, Histo)*y of Millard County, pp. 341-44.
