Della (top right) as a child
I have been asked to give a tribute for my sister Della Hickenlooper Barker, born in Pleasant View, Utah Sept. 24, 1888 passed away April 30, 1968 in Rexburg, Idaho, daughter of Charles A. Hickenlooper and Medora Blanchard Hickenlooper. She lacked a few months of being 80 years of age.
In her teens she was very much interested in her progenitors and made record of family names and statistics. Before there was a unified form for the entire church, she used the Viney R Barker wheel, which was very popular in Weber Co. It was a very good chart for beginners. It took care of five generations. Many of the older members had Bible records, names, dates, old letters. Among those who had considerable data was Aunt Jane Ellis on the Blanchard side and Aunt Elizabeth Weight on the Bocock line. Della would take the proper form and put in proper order the information gathered.Read more →
