HRFA Minutes dated 4 Oct 2009 by Jean Nelson
Carol Merrell introduced Mrs. Arlene Eakle, a genealogist who lives in Tremonton. Mrs. Eakle told us that she grew up in Bountiful just a few blocks from John Rampton’s house. She holds a PhD degree from U of U and studied 5 years of Latin. Mrs. Eakle was hired by the HRFA on a trial basis to research Henry Rampton’s ancestors. Mrs. Eakle presented new documentation on John Rampton, blacksmith, born abt 1670. We were very pleased with Mrs. Eakle’s work and would like her to continue doing research on Henry Rampton’s ancestors. She plans to search English manor records for us when she attends a genealogical conference in California next weekend.
