About Archibald McKinnon, Jr.

Find a Grave

Birth: Jun. 26, 1865

Death: Sep. 22, 1934

Archibald McKinnon, Jr. was born in Salt Lake City, on June 26 1865, as the third child and third son of Archibald McKinnon, Sr., and his first wife, Mary McKay.

In 1875, he accompanied his parents to Randolph, Utah, where they became well-beloved early settlers and pioneers of that town. Archibald McKinnon, Jr., himself, became very well respected and beloved in Randolph and surrounding communities. As the Rich County Representative to in the Utah Legislature, he was very well respected. You may wish to read his obituary notice.

Mount McKinnon was named in honor of Archibald McKinnon, Jr., for his dedicated and visionary supervision of the construction of 10-miles of gravel road from Woodruff, Utah to Monte Cristo.

As Deputy Sheriff in Randolph, he single-handedly foiled an attempted jail-break.

As the primary blacksmith in Randolph, he was well-spoken of, and he was also the inventor, patenter, and sole manufacturer of the "Celebrated McKinnon Haystacker", which was very popular and sold widely throughout Rich County and surrounding counties. (Note: I am hoping to find a picture/sketch of one of these. Please contact me if you know of one.)
