Contributor: Andrew Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

1884-1886 In the early eighties a number of L.D.S. families had their attention drawn to be a mountainous region lying southeast of Rabbit Valley, where the facilities were good for farming in a limited extent. The first white settler on Sand Creek was a man by the name of Peter Brown, who located in the Sandy Valley above the present site of Torrey. He raised crops of various kinds and took care of his cattle. Some time after this, about 1884, William Alma Holt began using part of the water of Sand Creek and the Heath Brothers of Sand Creek, during the temporary absence of Mr. Peter Brown, but thus far there was no settlement on the present site of Torrey. On the 21st of December 1886, John W. Young and George Drury Morrill moved upon the present site of Torrey and bought out the right of Mr. Brown to Sand Creek. In March 1887 the two settlers, John William Young and George Drury Morrill, made ditches conveying the waters of Sand Creek upon the present Torrey town site. The place was at that time known as Poverty Flat, and the settlers named succeeded that year in raising a pretty good crop of cereals and vegetables. 1890 The inhabitants in that region of country having increased to about half a dozen families in 1890.

E. L. Young was 26 years old when Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
E. L. Young was 29 years old when U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring the freedom of all slaves in Confederate territory by January 1, 1863.
