Biography* FRANCIS M. MOGNETT
Arizona Portrait and Biography, 1901

Prominent among the citizens of Arizona who
have witnessed the marvelous development of
the west in the past half century, and who have,
by honest toil and industry, succeeded in acquir-
ing a competence, is the gentleman whose name
introduces this sketch. This honored pioneer
now makes his home in Phoenix, and is justly
numbered among the representative and promi-
nent citizens of the place. In 1852 he came to
the Pacific coast, and since 1877 has been a resi-
dent of Arizona.

Mr. Mognett was born near Kingston, Cald-
well county, Mo., April 27, 1842, and is a son of
George and Frances (Farley) Mognett. The
father was born in Greenbrier county, Va., in
1799, and was of German descent. Some of his
ancestors were among those who fought for the
independence of the colonies in the Revolution-
ary war, and he had a brother in the war of
1812. At an early day he removed to Caldwell
county, Mo., after stopping for a year or so in
Indiana, and in 1852 he crossed the plains to
Oregon, taking with him his family. His wife
died en route, but the father and children finally
reached their destination in safety. The journey
was made with ox-teams, and they took with
them some full-blooded shorthorn cattle. They
passed through St. Joseph, Mo., and crossed the
Platte river at North Platte. They traveled
through Wyoming to the head of the Snake
river, and then proceeded down that stream to
the city of Dalls, and on to Oregon, being from
April until -November in making the trip.

After spending about a year at the present
site of Portland, they located in Clackamas
county, among the foothills of the Cascade
mountains, where they lived in constant dread
of the Indians for some time. A log palisade
was built near the house, and several times dur-
ing Indian outbreaks were forced to seek shelter
in the forts of that locality. Our subject can
relate many interesting incidents of those pio-
neer days. The father, who was by occupation
a farmer, died in Oregon, in 1881, at the age of
eighty-one years. His wife, who was born in
Virginia, of Scotch-Irish ancestry, died of chol-
era at Ash Hollow, near Snake River, while
crossing the plains in 1852, as previously stated.
Of their eight children Francis M. is the young-
est, the others being Mrs. Jane Cameron, who
died in Missouri; Mrs. Sarah Smith, who lives
near Vancouver, Wash; Mrs. Rachel Jones, who
died in Oregon in 1888; Mrs. Wilmotte Martin,
who also died in Oregon; Julia, who died in
Portland, that state; Mrs. Eliza Cutting, who
died in Oregon; and Jackson, a resident of
Phoenix, his home being just a block west of his
brother's. Jackson was born in Indiana, August
29, 1835, and for many years has been engaged
in ranching and the cattle business with our sub-
ject. They also own a few buildings in partner-
ship. With the exception of Jane and Rachel,
all of the children accompanied the father on his
removal to Oregon.

Francis M. Mognett spent the first ten years of
his life in the state of his nativity, and then
crossed the plains with the family. For a few
years there were no schools near their new home,
but later subscription schools were started. The
homes of the early settlers were all log houses,
and the families lived in true pioneer style. As
soon as old enough to be of any assistance Mr.
Mognett began to aid in the improvement and
cultivation of the home farm. Later he built a
sawmill on Cedar creek, Clackamas county, Ore.,
where he engaged in the manufacture of lumber
and shingles for many years, and on disposing
of his property there he removed to eastern Ore-
gon, being engaged in the cattle business in
Umatilla county for eight years. In 1876 he
started overland for Arizona, and crossed the
Colorado river with three hundred and seventy-
four head of high-grade cattle, his brand being
III. He was accompanied by his brother, and
they located forty miles south of Prescott in
Yavapai county, where they continued in busi-
ness until the partnership was dissolved in 1881,
when they bought sixty-two acres of land north
of Phoenix. This property was divided the fol-
lowing year. They sold to Mr. Chalmers. Short-
ly after he sold to Mr. Churchill, but as he failed
to make final payment the land reverted to F.
M. Mognett, who has since sold the most of the
property, and it is now adorned with comfort-
able homes.

The brothers continued in the cattle business
together until 1897, having at one time about
seven thousand head. During the year 1897
they sold their herd and ranch property. Our
subject is now a resident of Phoenix, his home
being at No. 504 North Second street. He owns
considerable real estate in that city, including
fine business property on Washington, Adams
and Jefferson streets, besides many dwelling
houses and the Portland hotel. He also has
an improved farm of one hundred and sixty acres
four and a half miles northwest of Phoenix. He
has probably done more to improve the city
than any other man within its borders, and while
promoting his own interests has materially ad-
vanced the welfare of the community in which
he lives.

In 1870 Mr. Mognett was married in Oregon
to Miss Sarah E. Wilson, a native of Multnomah
county, that state. Her father, John P. Wilson,
who was born in Illinois, and crossed the plains
with his family in 1853, located in Multnomah
county, where he engaged in farming for many
years, but is now living in East Portland, at the
age of seventy-eight years; he is a consistent
and faithful member of the Methodist Church.
His father, John P. Wilson, Sr., died in Illinois.
Mrs. Mognett's mother, whose maiden name
was Mary Ann Grigsby, was born in North Car-
olina, and died in Oregon at the age of seventy-
five years. Our subject and his wife have ten
children, namely: Minnie A., wife of C. W. Stev-
ens, the well-known liveryman of Phoenix; Fan-
nie, wife of W. A. Milton, a wholesale grocer, of
the same city; George W., who is engaged in
mining and also resides in Phoenix; Ida M.
and Rosa L., both graduates of the Lamson
Business College; Elmer F., Martin J., Annie
E., Jesse I. and Francis M., Jr., who are at home.
The family is a very bright and interesting one,
and some of the daughters are artists of rare
ability, which is evidenced by several fine paint-
ings which adorn their home.

In his political views Mr. Mognett is a Dem-
ocrat. He has traveled extensivefy over the
west, is an entertaining conversationalist, and is
a man of much more than ordinary information
and attainments. His upright course in life
commands the respect and commendation of all
with whom he comes in contact, either in busi-
ness or social life, and his labors as one of the
founders of this territory justly entitle him to
prominent mention in its annals.

FRANCIS M. MOGNETT
History of Arizona, 1896

Francis M. Mognett was born in Caldwell County, Missouri, near
an old Mormon settlement, April 27, 1842, to the marriage of
George Mognett and Frances (Farley) Mognett, both native
Virginians. In 1852 the family started across the plains, but
the mother died of cholera while on the way. The rest of the
family reached Portland, Oregon and settled on a farm in the
Willamette Valley. There the father died when eighty-one years
old. In 1876 our subject left Oregon and made his way to
Arizona, taking with him about 400 head of cattle. He located
at Dripping Springs, Yavapai County, on a large ranch and
entered actively on his career as a stockman. He still owns
this ranch.

In 1881 he came to Phoenix and the same year purchased sixty
two acres of land within the corporation. This has since been
subdivided. Mr. Mognett built the Lamson Business College and
is a man who allows no worthy movement to fail for want of
support on his part. He still handles beef cattle, buying and
fattening for the market. He also has half interest in 240
acres at Grand Canal, one half interest in eighty acres of
land below Tempe and property in Phoenix.

On the 18th of September 1870 Mr. Mognett married Miss Sarah E.
Wilson, a native of Oregon whose father was a resident of
Portland, that State. Ten children have been born to this
union and are named as follows: Minnie A., now Mrs. Charles
Stevens of Phoenix; Sarah F., now Mrs. W.A. Milton of Briggs,
Ariz; George W; Ida M., Rosa L; Elmer F; Martin J; Anna
E, Jessie I. and Francis M. Jr.

Pioneers and Well Know Cattlemen of Arizona by Roscoe G. Willson volume 2, 1951
Francis M. Mognett
1842-1918
Francis Mognett
"Frank" Mognett. as he was generally called, was born near Kingston, Missouri, on April 27. 1812. In 1852. the family made the long trek by ox teams to Oregon, driving with them a herd of high grade Shorthorns.
In 1868, young Frank established a cattle ranch in eastern Oregon with his brother. Jackson, and two years later married Sarah Wilson.
Hearing reports of vast unstocked ranges in Arizona, the Mognetts sold out in Oregon in 1876. and with their families and 375 good cattle drove the long overland trail to Arizona.
During the drive they had a few of their cattle run off by Indians, and warded off several attacks, but arrived safely in Prescott late in the year.
Here the herd was held for a time until a desirable range could be located. Finally it was decided to locate on Turkey Creek, about forty miles south of Prescott, and the cattle were located there and a homestead taken up and suitable buildings erected.
The Bowers, Townsends. Wrights and several other families were already established east and south of Prescott. and a stage and freight line ran from Phoenix to Prescott. There was. however, plenty of open range, so that in the ensuing years the cattle spread out and multiplied until at one time the Mognetts ran around 7,000 cattle ranging from north of Phoenix to Crown King, in the K I K (Kik) brand.
As success came to the Mognetts. they bought property in and adjoining Phoenix and built homes there and owned considerable business property.
The great drought of 1896-1904 caused the Mognetts to sell many of their cattle at $9.00 head. In 1807, they sold the remnant to Marshall and Jimmy Young and retired to Phoenix where Frank died February 10.
1918. His wife survived until March 22, 1933.
The children of Frank Mognett living today are a son, Martin in Florence, and daughters; Mrs. Rosie Rahn, Phoenix; Mrs. Ida Nesbitt, Mrs. Anne Zenn and Mrs. Sarah Holder, of California.2,1,3
