    • David Greaves Eames was born Sept. 29, 1879 in Logan, Utah, a son of David Cullen Eames and Elizabeth Cluley Greaves. He was the oldest child in a family of five boys and four girls.

      His family moved to Preston, Idaho, when he was five years old. He spent his boyhood on his father's farm north of Preston. He attended the Central School and the Oneida Academy in Preston. He also attended the Brigham Young College in Logan, Utah.

      He was called on a mission to represent the Latter-day Saint Church on Oct. 13, 1902. He was sent to the northwestern states and labored in Tacoma, Washington, and British Columbia, Canada. He was the first missionary to represent the Preston Third
      Ward.

      He married Pearl Geddes of Preston, Idaho, 25 Jan. 1905, in the Logan Temple at Logan, Utah . They bought a farm two miles northwest of Preston and spent their married life there .

      He has always been active in scouting. He helped initiate the early organization of scouting when It was introduced into Cache Valley. He has been a member of the Executive Board, the Finance Committee, Chairman of the Oneida District and also Vice President. He received the Silver Beaver award in recognition of his outstanding service to boyhood in 1945 .

      He has served his church and community in various capacities. He served sixteen years as superintendent of the YMMIA of the Oneida Stake. He was Superintendent of his ward Sunday School for four years. He was a member of the Bishopric of the Preston Third Ward for several years. He served as a Stake High Counselor and a member of the Genealogical committee for ten years. He served as first counselor in the Oneida Stake Presidency for ten years when President Taylor Nelson was president. He was made a Stake Patriarch in the Oneida Stake in 1939.

      He represented Franklin County twice in the Idaho State Senate and was Probate Judge in Preston for two years. He was a trustee of the Preston school board for twelve years .

      The spirit of the gospel has always been in our home,
      People who have come here to visit have felt this spirit and commented about it.

      I have always had such profound respect for my father and I am so very proud of him. I am truly thankful for the good name he and Mother gave me and I hope to merit
      their association in the eternities.
