Mike, you mentioned you are from the Bear Lake County Area.
I would like to know if you are familiar with the town of Montpel
ier and whether you can help me find information on my ancestors, the Norton family who
lived in Montpelier in the 1880s. My gr. gr. grandmother was Alvira Jane Campbell who
was born in Salt Lake County, Utah around 1858 or so and later married Franklin Norton, a
horse trader and settled in Montpelier in the 1880s. I was told that Alvira was a
Blackfoot Indian and so far I have had no luck in tracing her family or the
family of Franklin Norton. Any help would be appreciated!
Mary in N.J.
