1. Moccasin, Arizona (Wikipedia). In the late 1800s, LDS Church leaders organized settlement in southern Utah and Northern Arizona. One settlement on the Arizona Strip, Pipe Spring, was settled in 1870. At about the same time, the community of Moccasin was established at Moccasin Spring, about four miles north of Pipe Spring. The Kaibab Band of the Southern Paiute Indians had lived on and controlled the Arizona Strip area, including the area around Pipe Spring, Moccasin Spring, and nearby Sand Spring, since approx. 1150 A.D.

2. The United Order Movement. The United Order Movement was a program of economic and moral reform begun in 1874 under Brigham Young. Sporadic efforts were made in the 1880s to implement some form of the United Order, especially in the founding of new colonies, and of course some organizations, such as Orderville and Brigham City, continued for a decade or more after founding.
