Native Peoples Law Lawyers In Fredonia Arizona

Fredonia is a town in Coconino County, Arizona, United States. According to 2006 Census Bureau estimates, the population of the town is 1,051. It was settled in 1885 by Mormon pioneers from Kanab, Utah. The word "Fredonia" was coined by Samuel Latham Mitchill, combining "freedom" with a Latin ending. Mitchill proposed the name as a replacement for the United States. It failed in that regard but was adopted as the name of many towns and cities. According to George R. Stewart, the meaning of the Arizona town of Fredonia is sometimes said, falsely, to be the joining of English "free" and Spanish "doña", thus meaning "free woman", supposedly referring to polygamous Mormons (Stewart, pg. 173).
