History - Some of the first settlers of Stringtown, later Lindon, were the Cullimore, Wooley, Brown, Nerdin, Howard and Gillman families, along with Frederick Fowlke. Other early settlers were the White, Davis, Lord, Bezzant, Holland, Harris, Ash, Parks, Fage, Dittmore, Wright, Mayhew, Rogers, and Wadley families, along with the Elias Aston family. The first couple married in the new settlement were Clara Fowlke, and James Cullimore.

The first baby girl born in this town was James and Clara's daughter, Elizabeth. She was born in a dugout with a dirt roof and floor. Frederick Fowlke and James Cullimore later started a coffin-making business.

The first homes of the settlers were meagerly furnished. Most of the furniture was handmade from native wood. Their beds and chairs were made of willows tied with buckskin. They slept on ticks stuffed with straw, feathers, or cattail down. Their clothing was homemade. Most families owned a few sheep, and the wool was spun into cloth. The men's trousers was made from buckskin. The children went barefoot until cold weather, and then they wore moccasins of buckskins. There was usually no great shortage of food. A variety of vegetables was raised in their gardens, and there were plenty of fish and wild game. (Lindon—Our Town, 1983)

In the 1880 census of Pleasant Grove, John and Harriet Fowlke are shown living in Pleasant Grove next to their son, Frederick and his family, and their daughter Clara, now married to James Cullimore.

It is also said that James and Clara used to sell Honey. Young couples going on dates would stop by their home to buy the honey.

Susanna Barbara Braegger

Susanna Barbara Braegger was born May 17, 1869 in Wattwil, St. Gallen, Switzerland. She and her little sister Louise traveled to America on the steam ship Nevada, leaving May 16, 1883, arriving May 28, 188315. Among the other passengers on that ship was her future husband, John Paul Kuenzler, whom she would marry 5 years later, on November 15, 1888 in Logan, Cache, Utah. After arriving in New York, the travelers continued to Utah by railroad, from about May 28, 1883 to June 3, 1883. For further information about her life, see the entry on John Paul Kuenzler. She died July 16, 1905 in Willard, Box Elder, Utah16, two days after the birth of twin boys.

Abraham Braegger or Braker Sr.

Abraham Braegger (Braker in some sources), was born January 3, 1844 in Wattwil, St. Gallen, Switzerland. On April 14, 1863, he married Salome Brunner (born June 29, 1838, in the same area) in Wattwil, St. Gallen, Switzerland. They were the parents of Susanna Barbara Braegger, and followed her to America a few years after she went. They sailed on the steamship Wisconsin with another daughter named Bertha17. They left from Liverpool, England on August 27, 1887 and arrived in New York on September 8, 1887. Presumably, travel from New York to Utah was by railroad. Only a brief description of this journey was found: "The steamship Wisconsin sailed from Liverpool, England, with over four hundred Saints, in charge of John I. Hart. The company arrived in New York Aug. 27th and in Salt Lake City Sept. 15th".18 Salome Brunner Braegger died on March 18, 1893. Abraham Braegger died on February 5, 1907 in Willard, Box Elder, Utah.
