Cocoa Mo, Indiana
Coco Mo (UK) Kokomo, [k o k k k m o ]) is a city in Howard County, Indiana, the United States of America, and is the county office of the county. According to the 2010 Population Census, the population was 45,468, which was down 1.4% from 46,113 in 2000. Indiana is the 13th largest city in the population and the major city of the Coco Mo metropolitan area, which consists of Howard County and Tipton County. On January 1, 2012, the city merged with Alto and Indian Heights, which were located in the southern and western parts of the city, resulting in an increase of more than seven square miles (18 km2) in area and a population of nearly 57,000. In recent years, it has connected a sister city with Toyo City, a prefectural city located in Kinka City, Zhejiang Province, China.

The Coco Mo was named after the Indian language. He first benefited from the practice of law when he became the district office. Before the American Civil War, it was connected to Indianapolis City and the cities of the East and continued to grow. Growth accelerated after the discovery of large natural gas reserves, triggering a boom in the mid-1880s. Among the projects that this boom attracted were the newly-born car industry. Significant numbers of technologies and innovation occurred in the KokoMo car industry, especially in the automobile industry, and as a result, KoCoMo City came to be called the "first city." Even now, the employment in the city still depends on the automobile industry at a very large proportion.
Early History and Corporate
According to the legend of the pioneers, the name Koko-Mo originated from the name of one of the four sons of Richardville, the last chief of the Miami tribe, who shortened "Koko-Ko" or "Makoko-Co" to mean "black walnuts" in the Indian language. According to the legend, he was said to be seven feet tall (210 cm), and he was mistakenly given the title of "Chief." David Foster, who was called "The Father of CocoMo," claimed that CocoMo was "the most difficult town on earth," so he took the name of the town from CocoMo, the "most difficult" Indian. It is believed that Ko Ko Mo was born in 1775 and died in 1838. The only documentary evidence that there was a Coco Mo is the record of a trading post that bought a barrel of flour for 12 dollars for his "wife". It is said that the body of Ko Co. Mo was discovered together with the bodies of others when the lumber mill was constructed in 1848 and was relocated to 'the northeast corner' of the Pioneer Cemetery. According to the tradition of the Peruvian-Miami, the name of the town comes from Thorntown, which the Miami named 'Cocamar,' and the name is mentioned as 'Cocamore' in the Treaty of Wabash Forks in 1834. This name was translated as 'Diver' (a generic name for water birds that are submerged in water).
As a result of forced Indian displacement, the number of Miami people who were in Howard County (Richardville County until 1846) by 1840 decreased to about 200. The main frontier was the Coco Mo village on the south bank of Wildcat Creek. The Indian Road connected Coomor, Frankfort and Thorntown (along the Wild Cat Creek), and connected through Casville to Peru and Greentown to Mesinghamshire. At that time, David Foster had a trading post in Howard County near the border of the reservation and the crossing of Wildcat Pike, where he traded the legal deal and sold alcohol illegally to the Miami.
Shortly after the establishment of Richardville County in 1844, a commissioner appointed to establish a county office had negotiated with Foster to obtain donations from Foster's land (according to the tax collection record in 1846, Foster owned 67 blocks of 552 acres (2.23 km 2) of land and business districts). At the request of the Coco Mo, it was only a few Foster's log-house and barn and Miami's huts. The commissioners asked for the donation of fertile land on the south bank of Wildcat Creek, but Foster refused and instead donated 40 acres (0.16 km2) of the north bank of Creek, which had deep forests and wetlands. As a condition for the donation, Foster had been asking to build a county office on the land, but Foster later declined it and Rufus L. Brawlers contracted it for $28. The delay in the construction cost me two dollars. The Marutsukuri County building was completed in 1845.
In June 1855, Henry A. Browsese applied to the Howard County Government Committee to incorporate the town of Coco Mo. The first election was not held for an unknown reason, but was held on October 1, 1855. With 62 affirmative votes against three votes, the County Government Committee decided to incorporate the town.
On March 31, 1865, a referendum was held to promote Koko Co., Ltd. to the city. The proposal was approved, and Nelson Purdam was elected the first mayor.
Since the town block was first put on sale on October 18, 1844 by predicting the project that would be brought by the County Office, Ko Co., Ltd. started to grow rapidly. David Foster was given the first license to sell goods at a Coco Mo rally in December 1844. In March 1845, two other merchants were given a license. In December 1844, John Bohan moved to Koko Mall and became a major owner, merchant, magistrate, and investor, and built a two-story wooden house not only in Koko Mall but also throughout the county.
After the enforcement of the Preemption Law in 1846, the settlers rapidly worked to secure their own property in the surrounding land.
In 1848, the Stone Breakers mill began operating at 10 miles west of Coco Mo (16 km). In 1850, James Beard bought a Pioneer printing machine in New London and established Howard's Tribune to start publishing newspapers. In 1851, as the business within the county was active, the county issued an order to build two buildings of the government. Both were made of flat bricks, with the base 18 feet (5.5 meters) x 36 feet (11.0 meters) wide. The county inspector and the magistrate used one building, and the magistrate and the recorder used the other.
On April 1, 1854, Indian Reserve Bank, the first bank in Coco Mo, was established with David Foster, John Bohan and Harless Ashley as major shareholders. The bank only lasted for several years, and the bank robber robbed him of his money and damaged Foster's property.
In 1854, the first train went to Koko Mo. "Pioneer" in New London had been advocating a railroad linking Coco Mo and Indianapolis. Colonel C. D. Murray was the agent of CocoMo for the railway-supporting subscribers. In 1852, the construction of the Peruvian and Indianapolis Railway started. In Coco More, Foster's business competitors, Dr. Samuel C. Mills and Dr. Corydon Richmond, donated several blocks to the railway company to secure a place to build a railway station near the commercial property. The merchants, who expected the cost of transportation to drop, claimed that the railway was laid along Bucky Street. Samuel Mills built a large framework structure at Howard Mill, which served as a warehouse for goods and a station for passengers. For some time after 1854, Ko Ko Co. Ltd. was the terminal of the railway, but later it was extended to Peru and to Michigan City.
Shortly after the construction of the Peru and Indianapolis Railway started, the Pennsylvania Railroad announced that it will pass one of its routes to KokoMo. The construction between Coco Mo and Logans Port started by 1853 (it was intended to be one of the centers of the Pennsylvania Railroad line network). This line opened on July 4, 1855.
The most important railway for KokoMo was the standard gage Clover Leaf Line. This line eventually connected Coco Mo to the west coast and the east coast. It began with the Frankfort and Coco Maud, a short line that connects Frankfort and Coco Maud. Henry Y. Morrison of Frankfort was the main promoter, and A. Y. Comstock served as a proxy in Coco Mo. Without the subsidies they had proposed, the promoters were given all the assets to the contractors who promised to complete the railway. The construction started in 1873 and was completed the following year. The freight transportation limited between the two cities did not profit. The line became part of the Toledo St. Louis and Kansas City Railway after several acquisitions by other railway companies. The railway connecting the line and the east was opened to Coco Mo on January 1, 1881.
List of mayors of Cole
In 1881, the most remarkable and contentious event in the history of Koko Co., Ltd. occurred. Mayor Henry C. Cole was shot dead by the sheriff's vigilante. Dr. Cole has a strange past and has been very passionate for the last 15 years. During the Civil War, he served as a military doctor of the Northern Army and was reputed to be an excellent surgeon, and later he moved to Coco Mo to become a famous doctor. In Coco Mo, she married a woman named Natalie, but Cole's wife was very jealous. Cole began to suspect a man named Allen and warned him to leave Coco. One day in October of 1866, Cole found Allen leave the post office and shot him with a revolver. Both the murder in broad daylight and the cold blood that Cole had been beating the fallen Allen have drawn national attention. Call's trial was held in Tipton County, and Daniel W. Vauhez, a Telekot, was chosen as his counsel. Vauheise won his innocence on the grounds of insanity. After that, Cole divorced his wife.
Cole's reputation for being unstable about violence and his cowardice when he killed Allen made many enemies, but he was generous to poor patients and he managed to win the close mayoral election in 1881 with his pledge to "clean up" the town. On September 19, 1881, shortly after he was elected, he was shot and killed by a sheriff's vigilante at Old Spring Mills on Westjefferson Street. The coroner reported that Deputy Sheriff George Bennett (the father of Richard Bennett, a stage idol in New York) had died of a shot-gun wound. The sheriff's story informed us that Cole had probably planned to attack the mill to trap his enemy. The vigilantes had been forced to fire at Cole to defend his house (the sheriff claimed he had two revolvers) and to stop Cole's escape, but his wounds were inconsistent with the story. Kohl's supporters argued that neither Revolver nor tools for robbery had been presented, and that their motives were not credible. Yet no legal proceedings were taken against Bennett or other members of the vigilante committee.
natural gas boom
Natural gas has been developed in Pennsylvania and Canada and has recently been developed around Findley, Ohio. In March 1886, a group of citizens led by A. Y. Comstock (who was promoting the Frankfurt and Coco Mo Railway) and D. C. Spakers (later president of Coco Mo Rubber Co.) circulated a memo calling for investors (US$100 per person) in order to bore the gas vein to at least 2,000 feet (600 meters) below the ground. It took September to gather 22 investors who needed it. The first well was built to the south of Wildcat Creek. On October 6, 1886, natural gas was blown out and the well was capped.
An Indiana gas boom began with a natural gas well in Eton, Indiana, which had started production just before the discovery of natural gas in Coco Mo. This discovery led to the transfer of Elwood Haines to Coomor, who became the supervisor of a natural gas company in Coomor and Howard County. In 1887, Diamond Plate Glass Company (a part of the current PPG Industries) started operating in Coco Mo, attracted to cheap and abundant natural gas. The Cocoa Milk White Glass Works started producing stained glass in Cocoa in 1888 and has continued to the present.
The First City
As a result of the natural gas boom, many manufacturers began to gather in Koko, which led to technological innovation. Thanks to the success of this industry and technology, the City of CocoMo has come to be called the "first city." Among the many achievements, Coco Mo is the pioneer in car manufacturing in the United States, and Elwood Haines conducted the initial test of the internal combustion engine on July 4, 1894. Haines and his companions made many cars in the next few years. In 1898, Haynes Apperson Motor Company was established to mass-produce automobiles. In 1912, Haynes invented stainless steel tableware, and it was decided to give his wife the tableware that did not change color. In 1938, General Motors' Delco Radio Division (now Delphi) developed the first push-button car radio.
Cocoa Co. was the "first city" in the food industry. In 1928, Walter Kemp Brothers Canned Food Company developed the first canned tomato juice in response to a request for baby food from a doctor. In the early 1920s, a man called John Powell developed the first corn picker (harvester). In 1965, the first store of Ponderosa Stakes House opened in Coomor. The McDonald's No. 1 restaurant with a restaurant also opened at Coomor, and the restaurant was called 'McDiner' locally. McDonald's idea has failed nationwide. McDiner was finally closed and returned to his regular McDonald's.

From March 21 to 26, 1913, 6.59 inches (167 mm) of rain fell in Coco Mo and it was heavily flooded. According to the "Coco Mo Tribune" at that time, the water level of the Wildcat Creek could rise by 3 inches (76 mm) an hour, then it crossed the levee and spread to the area about 1 mile (1.6 km). Damage was caused by a power outage just before the power plant was flooded. On March 26, the water level dropped 42 inches (1,100 mm) in 24 hours and the end of the flood was declared.
Ku Klux Klan
On July 4, 1923, the largest Ku-Klux-Klan rally ever held in the city attracted national attention. An estimated 200,000 members and supporters gathered in Malfarfa Park to promote the Grand Dragon of the Indiana Division Conclave and D.C. Stephenson. Since a huge flag was used to raise 50,000 dollars for the construction of a local "Klan Hospital," the members did not need to receive treatment only at the local hospital, which is a Catholic. Indiana at that time was a strong Clan base and 50% of white men were members of Clan. Every week, men and women from Kran held a meeting and a ceremony in Marfalfa Park, and Kran female members from Kokomaw Klux Klan held a meeting at the headquarters of the women's section of the Ku Klux Klan Women's Club and at the ammunition depot, the church. At the speech at the Baptist Church, 1,000 Clan female members attended.
On April 11, 1965, Southern Coco Mo was attacked by one of 47 tornadoes in the Midwest of the United States. This tornado was called Palm Sunday Tornado Daihatsu. The tornado at Fujita Scale F4 was 800 yards (730 meters) wide and passed through the city, killing 25 people, including the surrounding area. The Chrysler transmission plant has also been badly damaged. Windows cracked, the walls cracked, and parts of the west wall tilted. Maple Crest Elementary and Junior High School also suffered major losses. The roof of junior high school collapsed and the framework of both schools was quite broken. The Maple Crest Shell Gasoline Station, at the intersection of Lincoln Street and Washington Street, was knocked down from its foundation and scattered about. Mills Drugstore at the same intersection also collapsed. The house in Hollylane was pulled out of the ground and the house in James Drive was destroyed. The Maple Crest Shopping Center suffered the greatest losses and Woolworth the worst. The front and back of the Hiraya store were gouged out and the goods were scattered. Many of the houses in Maple Crest were destroyed and the top floor of Maple Crest Apartment was blown away. The only remaining structure in the nearby Breslenian church was the steeple. The wind from the ground near Coco Mo was so strong that Ted Fujita could see the swirling scene in the air.
From the mid to late 1980s, Ryan White was expelled from the school for AIDS, and it became a place that symbolized a national misunderstanding and neglect of AIDS. White was a 10's hemophiliac who had been infected with HIV by mistake during medical treatment. He went to Western Junior High School (actually in Rasiaville), but his classmates divided him into eight sections and forced him to eat lunch by himself and use another toilet. Many parents and teachers in the city supported the exclusion of White from coming to school. There was a long legal battle with the school side, and there was compulsion and violence against White and his family. A bullet was shot into the window of the White house. With the media featuring the incident, White became a national figure and spokesperson for AIDS research and mass education. In 1987, the White family left Koko Mo and moved to Cicero where Ryan transferred to Hamilton Heights High School. It was accepted by teachers and students who were educated about AIDS.
The Coco Moe Gas Tower has become a city symbol since it was built in 1954. It is 378 feet high (115 meters) and 12 million cubic feet (340,000 meters 3) in capacity. In 2003, the gas company decided to demolish the company for a high maintenance cost of $75,000 a year and $1 million to recast. Before reaching this conclusion, the idea of converting the tower into a huge Coca cola advertising tower was considered. Around 7:30 a.m. September 7, 2003, controlled demonstration Inc. disassembled this gas tower. The fragments of the tower will be sold to the public for $20 or $30 a piece, and the profits will be sent to the Cocoa Corp's planned Technology Commercialization Center and Bona Vista.
According to the National Census Bureau, the total area of the city is 18.56 square miles (48.1 km2), of which land area is 18.50 square miles (47.9 km2), water area is 0.06 square miles (0.16 km 2) and water area is 0.32%.

The majority of the employment of Cocoa Corp is in the manufacturing industry, and the economic recession, which started in December 2007, was a major hit. In December 2008, as a result of the difficulties in the automobile industry, it was ranked third in the magazine "Forbes" and "The List of Towns Dying Rapidly in the United States."
Two and a half years later in May 2011, "Forbes" listed Coco Mo as one of the "best cities for work." This was a result of 177 places in the ranking. The article described the success of Cocoa Corp over the past few years as "emotional." The article attributed it to successful "return to manufacturing." In June 2011, "Conxus" praised Coco Mo for its "rapid recovery" from the recession, and published an article predicting that auto production will increase and income will rise by more than two percent.
By May 2013, the unemployment rate of Ko Co. Ltd. was 9%, which was 1.4% lower for non-farm jobs. It was higher than the national average of 7/6%. In May 2013, manufacturing employment fell 6.9% over the past 12 months. The government's employment was 18.7% lower than the previous year.
