      Brief History of Croydon, Morgan County, Utah

      In 1874 the settlers reported a good harvest but expressed concern about a possible smallpox
      epidemic. Nearly all school children were vaccinated. John Toone, painter, royal musician, and
      community doctor, obtained vaccine in the following manner: when his young son, Richard, got
      smallpox, John took the pox germ and inoculated a calf, from which he made vaccine. He
      inoculated sixty persons, thus helping to end the epidemic.

      In that same year (1874) the Croydon-Morgan road was repaired after being out of condition
      for two years.

      In 1877 grasshoppers again threatened to destroy crops, but Croydon had its own little miracle
      of the gulls. Seagulls descended to eat vast hordes of the insect pests. There were then 173
      inhabitants in Croydon, about sixty students in public school, four stores, a restaurant, a
      sawmill, and a very rich coal mine. This must have been the "golden age" of Croydon.
