May 12 1847, William Clayton invented the odometer (roadometer). Appleton Harmon constructed the roadometer.
A member of the first pioneer group to enter the Salt Lake Valley on July 22, 1847.
Appleton Harmon - Captain of Tenth Ten
Appleton Harmon was an experienced mechanic and it was he who constructed the famous roadometer invented by William Clayton and used by the pioneer company to measure the distance traveled by a computation of wheel revolutions. He was born May 29, 1820 at Conneaut, Pennsylvania, the son of Jesse P. Harmon and Anna Barnes. He married Elmeda Stringham in Nauvoo, Illinois. The following was taken from his journal:
"Heavy draft for men to carry on the Mexican War, without a place to lay our heads, the task laying on our shoulders of finding a future resting place for those worn-out Saints. Thus in our forlorn condition, by request of Brother Kimball, I left my wife, child, father and brothers-my wife with her father's folks-and I started on the 17th of April with the pioneers and drove a team for Brother Heber C. Kimball.... I completed a roadometer and attached it to the wheel of the wagon by which we could tell each night the distance traveled through the day. We arrived at Fort Laramie the end of June and from the fort procured a flat boat in which we crossed the Platte to the south side, and proceeded on through the Black Hills until we came again to the Platte, making something like 600 miles that we had followed the course of this river. Here we had to recross it which took eight or nine days during which time we made a kind of ferry boat. Most of our company was ferried over by means of ropes and a small boat we had brought with us ... We cleared about $70 each ferrying over Oregon immigrants. By this time the river became fordable and we remained waiting for the arrival of our emigration company ... We remained here until the 26th of August, the long looked for companies having arrived and passed; we also have heard from the remainder of the pioneers that they had proceeded via Fort Bridger to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake and there settled upon a permanent settlement, the destined place of our future home.
"We started to return to Winter Quarters for our families, traveling through the Black Hills we hunted game and killed ourselves one antelope, one deer, one elk and arrived at Fort Laramie about the 3rd of September, when an inducement was held out to me of $300 a year for my services if I would accept it to work at my new trade of blacksmithing; having, during our impatient wait at the ferry, used the tools, coals and irons that would otherwise have lain idle and by so doing I acquired a practical knowledge sufficient to enable me to take charge of the work at the fort. On the 4th of September commenced and worked until the first of March, 1848. On the first day of March, I, with several others, started for Winter Quarters. I had an Indian pony on which I packed my bedding, provisions, etc., and with my gun on my shoulder, made my way homeward. We depended upon the wild beasts of the prairie for our support and our rifles with our sharp shooting to bring them within our reach.... On the 26th of March I arose at daybreak, saddled my horse and started. Arrived at Winter Quarters about 1 o'clock. Found my people all well and my wife at her father's. As soon as she saw me she began to weep. Looked for the cause, could not see my little boy and on enquiring was told that he was dead. Appleton Harmon Jr. was his name. He died September 20, 1847 at Winter Quarters."
After his return to the Valley in 1848 with his family Mr. Harmon filled a mission to England from 1850-1853. He later assisted in the erection of sawmills in Salt Lake, Millard and Washington counties, built a furniture factory at Toquerville and a woolen mill at Washington, Washington county. In these two important enterprises, he supervised the setting up of the machinery. During the later years of his life he made his home in Holden, Millard county where he died February 27, 1877.
