The Origin of the name “Catmon”

Legend has it that when a group of Spaniards came upon some men resting under a big Catmon tree  the leader asked what was the name of the place. Thinking that the Spaniard was asking for the name of the tree (one answered, “Katmon” and so it was that when the town was established in 1835 it was named Catmon.
