Maughan & Maxfield

Robert B and Mariel D Maughan:  They moved into Highland in 1924 but I cannot find anyone that matches.  Robert B and Marvell L Peterson lived in Cache Valley all their lives-I can’t make a connection to Utah County.  NOI

Louis E O and Rosamond Palmer Maxfield:  E O, as he was called, was born April 11, 1898 in Spring City, Utah to Louis Bedeque and Emma Artimissia Butler.  He served a mission to the North Western States 1919-1921.  Rosamond was born April 27, 1904 in West Jordan, Utah to Joseph Fred and Birdie Lucene Beckstead Palmer.  They were married September 12, 1923 in the Salt Lake Temple.  They had six children: Gerald, Calvin, Clark, Rodney, GeNeal and Cheryl.

E O worked and they lived at the lower power plant in American Fork Canyon (#68 on the 1958 Highland map).  It is not known exactly what time period they lived here but two children were born in American Fork in 1935 and 1940 and he was in the Bishopric for six years beginning January 20, 1935 and was in the Stake High Council for two years after that. 

He was 2nd Counselor to Bishop Harry Jerling and later a Stake High Councilman.  Rosamond worked in the Primary as teacher and organist, was a counselor to June Sargent and MIA organist, was counselor to Jessie Hyde in the Relief Society and was assistant Ward Organist to Velma Jerling. 

After leaving Highland they serve five short-term missions together and E O served as Mayor of South Jordan.  Rosamond passed away September 12, 1992 in Bountiful and E O followed on October 6, 1994 in Provo.  They are buried in the South Jordan Cemetery.
