Heart Throbs of the West, Kate B. Carter, Vol.12, p. 380

Don Carlos Shurtz, Sr., and James McInelly, Sr., were carpenters and cabinet makers. Don Carlos made a piano and a violin for use in the early days of Escalante. James McInelly was also a maker of caskets. Hyrum Norton and his brother worked as carpenters on Escalante's first public building in 1876-1877. This was a log building about 18 x 36 feet. Most of the pioneer men in Escalante, after their crops were planted and the ditches made, would take their broad axes and travel to the canyons where they would chop down logs, flatten the sides and use in building their homes. James B. Woolsey, Sr., boasted the first home with a lumber floor. Other earlier floors were made of flattened logs, hand hewn.
