In April of 1882, D.S.Smith, Alexander LaFoon and T.H. McMullin from Hillsboro, Missouri, arrived at Redfield in Spink county and started out on a tour of observation, the object in view being a permanent location. Although Mr. McMullin was the first to move his family into the new settlement, the town was named after Mr. LaFoon. The long years, and influential and commanding positions filled, placed D.S. Smith of Faulkton, in line to claim the honor of being the first pioneer settler in the county. The LaFoon settlement received important additions from Wisconsin, while a party from Charles city selected the present county seat on the bank of the Nixon and put forth desperate effort to secure for their settlement the honor of becoming the leading town in the new and important county. Among the men of qualities who were members of the LaFoon colony, were: J.H. Bottum, J.W. Johnston, F.A. Seaman, Dr. J.P. Rathbun, I. Allen Cornwell, W.H. Race, Hon. F.M. Byrne, Judge C.H. Derr and J.P. Turner, who have remained, and are active and influential citizens of Faulkton at the present day.
