Morgan Valley Memories of Richville

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

http://morgannews.com/2012/03/30/morgan-valley-memories-of-richville/ Submitted by The Sons of the Utah Pioneers First Letters In the year 1859, David E. Henderson, Issac Morris and Jonathan Hemmingway families formed the nucleus for the town of Richville. Lured to this spot in 1861 come Thomas Rich (1817-1884) who had the honor of having the town named after him but moved to Porterville. David Henderson built the first log house down by the east canyon creek. When other families came they were advised by David Henderson to build on higher ground because of the flooding, which he had experienced from the 1860 spring runoff. This same year John H. Rich, Gillerpie Waldron and Solomon Conley joined the group, followed by Albert Douglas Dickson and a year later his two brothers, William and John and his father, Billa Dickson in 1862. Add to the list names of George W. Taggart, George Seaman, Henry and Morgan Hinman, and later on the Oluf Rose, Sanford Colson Porter, Baltzar Peterson, John Wood, Fredrick Clark, George Brough, and William Smith families and others who were attracted to this beautiful place. I have often wondered how they were able to communicate with each other as many were Scandinavia and others were English. The first houses for many of these families were dugouts which let the rain in through the dirt roofs. As I have read the journals of many of the early settlers this was a common thing. Many have told of the mother giving birth to a child and having to have a blanket or canvas extended over her to keep the dripping water off of her as she would give birth to the child. One story is told of a snake falling from the ceiling onto the dinner table as the family was eating. A lot of industry was going on at this time the Railroad, building of homes putting in an irrigation system and the saw mills in Hardscrabble. There was also a Stone Query were the stones for the Morgan Theater and for many other early homes which are still in use today. Richville irrigated company was formed and a Canal was dug by hand. They used a plank and a saucer of water to set the grade. The canal became the Mill Race for the Grist Mill later on

Life timeline of Olof Rose

1832
Olof Rose was born on 26 Jul 1832
Olof Rose was 8 years old when Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of the Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.
Olof Rose was 27 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
Olof Rose was 29 years old when American Civil War: Fort Sumter surrenders to Confederate forces. The American Civil War was a war fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865. As a result of the long-standing controversy over slavery, war broke out in April 1861, when Confederate forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina, shortly after U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated. The nationalists of the Union proclaimed loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. They faced secessionists of the Confederate States, who advocated for states' rights to expand slavery.
Olof Rose was 47 years old when Thomas Edison demonstrates incandescent lighting to the public for the first time, in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Olof Rose was 56 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.
