History of Kanosh,Utah
Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)

KANOSH

Kanosh (Millard) is on US-91 between Cove Fort and Meadow. The settlement was first called Corn Creek because the first whites found corn growing along the creek in 1854. Kanosh was a friendly Indian chief who camped in this area with his band. "Kan" means "willow," as in "Kanab." "Oush" means "bowl." Chief Kanosh received his name as a baby beacause he enjoyed playing with his mother's willow bowl or jug.
