History - Among the first settlers who located in the district later comprised in Midvale Ward was David Pettigrew of the Mormon Battalion, who together with Alonzo and Wallace Raymond and their families, settled in 1851 on the east side of the Jordan River, about a mile west of the present Midvale 1st Ward meeting house. They were followed in the fall of 1852 by Harmon and Royal Cutler and William Bird with their families.

In 1854 the Raymond family was living in Lehi, Utah, where Alonzo P. was fence supervisor and inspector. Here, four children were born: Lydia - 21 Mar 1854, Alonzo - 24 Oct 1857, Louisa - 18 Jan 1860 and James - Sep 1862. Lydia lived only a few years. At the time or shortly after the birth of James, mother Clarinda passed away. James died in infancy. Clarinda died 24 Sept 1862 and was buried in Smithfield, Utah.

In 1860 Alonzo Pearce Raymond became interested in the progress of Cache valley. He bought a home in the Smithfield Fort from a Mr. Brunson and also Brunson's interest in the sawmill. In 1863 Alonzo owned and operated a shingle mill and was a partner in the grist mill. All these were located on Summit Creek, now called Smithfield Creek.

Like most pioneer settlements, Smithfield Saints had a home in the village and also farm land out from the settlement. When the fort was abandoned in 1863, the Raymond family moved to their home in the 300 block on North Main Street. Busy with the saw and shingle mills, the grist mill, as well as caring for the family, Alonzo also found time to assist in community activities. He was elected and served as a city councilman in 1868.
