Miles Morris Goodyear (1817-1849) was an American fur trader and mountain man who built and occupied Fort Buenaventura in what is now the city of Ogden, Utah. A cabin built there by Goodyear, as far as known, is the first permanent house built in Utah. Goodyear eventually moved to California and engaged in horse-trading and gold mining. He acquired land at Benicia and made a gold discovery on the Yuba River at "Goodyear's Bar." - wiki. (Howes K56).
