A Brief History of
Farmington, Utah
Written by George Quincy Knowlton in 1956. Compiled and edited by his daughter, Jannetta K. Robinson in 1965. I am in the process of indexing this book, which will be available as a file attachment to an email, when I have it completed. In the meantime, I will look up queries if you give me a full name. Please no complete family searches. The book covers the first pioneer settlers in 1849 through about 1960. This was not a comprehensive history.  Mostly prominent families listed.
